69%How Addicted to Apple Are You? It would take 14 Long Island Iced Teas to kill me

There’s something about Sean…

At breakfast at the local brunch-diner the guy in the next booth engaged (as in: wouldn’t leave us alone) in a conversation on how the US government was controlling his mac laptop via windows. You see, the machine would go crazy when a certain program launched windows via parallels. He had removed parallels off it […]
