My dad has offered to buy me a Mac since he and my mom converted a while back, but I never took him up on it because he'd really only be buying it for me so he could come to me to ask me questions. I really like not having to provide technical assistance. \:\)

But who knows, maybe I'll let him convince me sometime. It might be fun to play.

Also I don’t think most people would come close to taking advantage of a Mac. I imagine most computer users just surf the internet, send emails, social network and other pretty mundane stuff that doesn’t require much.


Hey Grunt, the word mundane should cease to be used as a synonym of boring, simple, lackadaisical etc. The true etymology of the word is "of the world" or "belonging to it", which obviously isn't mundane.

The word has evolved somehow to mean something totally contrary to its original meaning.

Surfing the net isn't the same light workload it used to be. Websites are so complex now with so much content to process that there is a noticable performance difference now with slower hardware. The ipad seemed way too slow for me (even just going on the internet) given its pricetag.

I think we have to accept that words are going to be wielded in different ways over time, unless some superhero emerges who can lock down word usage.

No, it isn't. There's a little line to represent the adam's apple...

At least THAT's the little line and not something else, right?

What a tragic superhero, though, charged with the mundane task of keeping word meanings pure. He probably has to worry about a bot replacing him, too.

He looks rather blase about the whole thing.
