Look at it this way: in a hundred years, who's gonna care?

Totally. Just like my MacBook Pro. If I had to rely on Apple's iPhone or MacBook batteries for power I'd be pissed too.

I'm upset with myself that I noticed the Terminator's feet were off model.

Terminator isn't an Apple product, his battery is user replaceable.

Heh, I always wondered why those amazing fighting machines with lightning-fast processors, tons of RAM and the newest technology a deranged computer network could come up with always reacted with a delay and moved so slowly - this explains everything!

Looks like Terminator, walks like Robocop.

I admit that I laughed when the Terminator seemed to sincerely thank the cameraman for the coin, just like some of my favorite bums do.

I so need to start posting links again. I tripped over this yesterday when tinkering with YT and some vidcap software...

...We were that close to going out forever. But there was one man who taught us to fight, to storm the wire of the camps, to smash those metal motherfuckers into junk. He turned it around. He brought us back from the brink. His name is Wozniac. Steve Wozniac.

Wouldn't a Terminator just have ripped the vending machine open?

No, no, no. The terminator can walk with a normal human gait. In the first movie, when the Ahnold-ness got burned off in the truck explosion and the robot was revealed, it had a shuffling gait because it had a damaged leg. That shouldn't be the default walk for all terminators.

That's because he's an imitation version from the Sanlitun silk market. Around the Olympics Apple and Adidas built new stores right next to a knock-off market popular with foreigners. I found it funny that Apple responded to counterfeits just by opening a store next door.

Heh. Apparently the T800 runs Apple software on a Motorola 6503.

The video might only be four minutes long but maybe it'll be enough if you know that in the few minutes we had together we loved a lifetime's worth.

This is a person who takes the OS wars waaaaaaay too seriously.

But since we're trolling, hey buddy, if you really want to prove your technical genius, why don't you write a successful virus for the Mac already? I'm still waiting.
