Dear Apple

Why the fucking fuck should I need to fucking reboot my fucking PC, just because I've updated the worthless cuntwaftery that is your fucking QuickTime arsebiscuit? And why the fuck does your useless crap fucking lock up my browser when you pop up a dialog box telling me that your shit needs to be updated? And why the fuck does it make no difference whether I click "Update" or "Cancel", I still need to fucking reboot my browser?

Jesus, you fucking halfwits make Microsoft look competent by fucking comparison.

Idiots.

That's funny - I thought Mac's were absolutely wonderful.....

Is this another "lets alter the figures" relevation??

AntiCitizenOne said...

Google "Media Player Classic" and "Quicktime alternative".

I have been using my new laptop with Windows Vista Business for about 6 months....and err..I am not best pleased. Updates every 5 minutes and it even does the updates when you don't want them. Half the things it updates I didn't know I even had on the machine and am never likely to use...let alone update them. It is worrying that someone somewhere is digging around in my machine and updating it. Anyway this version of windows stinks and I only wish I could go back to 2000. Plus should I purchase the new version of Microsoft office? I understand that is crap too.

This should help

Apple is just as shit as Microsoft - they just hide it better.

Something tells me this is Apple's little joke.

Make everything on their Windows software demand a reboot, but never on a Mac.

Ha Ha!

Three words: Full screen video.

Not so smug now eh?

Implying that one of the biggest companies in the world is incompetent!! Do you think slagging MS makes you look smart or something. Get a grip and try seeing reality for a change!!!

Obnoxio The Clown said...

Jesus, the windowlickers are out tonight, aren't they?

Fucking hell, of course MS is incompetent, just look at the uselessness of their "security" model as one tiny example.

SmugLinuxBastard said...

Or the never-to-be-forgotten M$ "Critical Update Notification Tool"

@nbc I have a little script that plays YouTube videos in mplayer, so I'm still smug.

I develop SW. Bugs can creep in, especially in massively complex systems. Some of those bugs can even make it through to the customer.

It's easy to focus on the things that have gone wrong.

Overall, I think Windows is a marvellous piece of SW. I remember the days when you used to get blue screen of death on regular basis. These days I can run the same windows installation for a year without a crash.

Obo, if it is so crap why does most of the world have it installed? And don't even mention the Mac OS, it's not as good as windows.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

Anonymong, I bet you're one of the fucktards that conspires to give me an aneurysm when I have to go in and tidy up the fucking mess you made.

I bet you can't run your fucking PC for a year without a reboot though.

Limp-wristed microsnot-loving nancyboy.

Obo, I take it I'm not supposed to take that reply seriously? Or are you just an arsehole?

If you're so good why are you not making more of a difference? Or are you? Fuck knows, fuck cares.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

"If you're so good why are you not making more of a difference?"

Because there's one of me and hundreds of thousands of you.

Eat shit. A trillion flies can't be wrong.

You fucking sheep.

AntiCitizenOne said...

The trick with M$ software is to know what to use and what to cut away.

Didn't take hundreds of thousands of people to invent the computer, develop DOS, discover relativity and QM etc etc....

You're just an over-confident, under-intelligent knobhead.

"You fucking sheep." What are you, a rebellious teenager? Grow-up.

Your motive is to sound smart by slagging of a common piece of SW. Pathetic.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

"Didn't take hundreds of thousands of people to invent the computer, develop DOS, discover relativity and QM etc etc...."

You are quite correct. Unfortunately, the hundreds of thousands of people who are using computers today are educated to the same high standards that are necessary to get a job stacking shelves in Kwiksave.

Like you.

You know nothing about me. I laugh at the irrationality of that statement.

I know you go to bed at night stroking off over the idea of a three-way with Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer.

OK, a four way in turns.

Jesus. Why do you cunts have to make it so difficult?

I think I'll stick to my mop and bucket.

microdave said...

Obo - you must have realised this was going to happen when you made the post.

I was once stupid enough to allow Quicktime onto my MS machine. I won't make that mistake again. If VLC won't play it, I don't watch it....

"Obo, if it is so crap why does most of the world have it installed?

Or, to put it another way, if the alternative is so good, why doesn't everyone use it? The answer is for the same reason that we are still using an un-ergonomic keyboard layout that was designed to stop the keys on a mechanical typewriter jamming. It's got nothing to do with quality and everything to do with establishing a dominant position in the market, early on.

"It's got nothing to do with quality and everything to do with establishing a dominant position in the market, early on."

Just like the VHS/Betamax situation years ago....

I'd have expected a heap of Apple trolls attacking Obo for saying anything negative about their Jesus and his wonderful and not even slightly assfucking software. Compared to that, a Microsoft fanboy is a definite improvement; nowhere near as annoying or self-righteous.

And: "mplayer" is the ultimate answer to all sucky media player software. Even... in fact, especially, on Windows.

Dr Evadne said...

Thanks Umbongo and @ AntiCitizenOne you are right about trying to work out what to cut out of Vista. Most of it probably but start with the sidebar.

I decided on this system because a.) it was cheaper than Mac
b.) I was under the impresion that the security was improved
d.) stupidty

Fucking hell. Would you term a road worker a Makita fanboy cause he prefers his particular jack hammer? Get a fucking life.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

I certainly would if he also proffered such spurious endorsements of Makita.

Cunt.

OK, I concede. You can't win a slagging match with a clown. Well, I can't anyway.

bayard said...

"Fucking hell. Would you term a road worker a Makita fanboy cause he prefers his particular jack hammer? Get a fucking life."

You obviously don't work in the construction industry. Yes Makita (and Bosch, Hilti, Festo etc etc) fanboys exist and I've met (and been bored by) them.

Whenever I try and play back a Quicktime file, the sound co-om-me-es ou-ut a a bi-bi-it l li-ik-ke th-hi-is.
Also, you know when you plug a flash drive in, or put in a CD, the little window appears, asking what you want to do (open a folder, play the music, etc), and there's a wee box you can tick which says "Always take the selected action", yet ticking this has no apparent effect; the same window still pops up every bloody time.
Computers are strange things.

I hope you aren't a smoker, Obo.
