Apples & Airstreams

An interesting little quote....

"Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq, Tandy, and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans, on the other hand, may note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form." --New York Times, November 26, 1991

I always suspected that Airstreamers also "Think Different." Rock on!

Talking The Airstream Made Me Do It

After I bought my Airstream I had to go out and buy an aluminum case Apple 15" Powerbook. It was only natural.

Folks get a kick out of my 17" and my Ti when they come in and take a peek at my coach...one person said, "Neat, they even made it with a matching computer!".

I have to admit, it does look as if they were meant to be together...like corn flakes and milk...peanutbutter and chocolate....

At any rate, been using Apple's since I was in the 7th grade on the old Apple II+ and I have touched almost every model since then.

Proud to say since OSX came out, some of my most DIE HARD PC friends have gone Mac...as a matter of fact, I just rescued 2 from the dark side of the force last night!

Pork, I shamelessly stole that image...it is way cool. I took some winblows sitckers with pentium propaganda and stuck them in the same place on my 17"...drives the Apple engineers nuts sometimes when they see it.

So I see this thread in the top 30 and think...WOW..one I can really get into.....then I see that I seem to have already started it....

...and as I scroll down I see what has happened.

I found it pretty funny.
