I like a lot of your stuff.  I use a lot of your stuff.  I even got my wife a hideously overpriced but very pretty 24" iMac.

But you gotta stop it.



I don't want fucking Safari for Windows.

Stop trying to install it every TISG-blessed time there is an update to iTunes.  I don't need a third fricking browser, and I certainly don't want an inferior one like Safari.

I know, I know Safari kicks ass blah blah blah.  I don't care.  I love and live on FireFox.  If I had an Apple, perhaps I would give Safari a fair shake. I don't need another poorly supported browser.  It's hard enough to get Firefox to work on all sites.   

Safari on Windows?  Please.  I didn't even know you fuckers BOTHERED with a Windows version.  Sticking Safari up every uneducated user's proverbial back door when they update iTunes is dirty pool.  Stop it.  Its bad enough you install Quicktime every time with no choice.

So pull your heads out of your collective asses.  You can offer it on the iTunes update, just don't make it the GODDAMN DEFAULT.

Listen, Apple, you make some of the coolest shit out there, and this is from a bitter old Commodore guy.  I like your stuff.  Stop making me think you are secretly more evil than garlic ice cream and Bill Gates' taint.

Sincerely Yours,

Gedvondur

Quit baiting garlic like that. It isn't cool.

until they make open sores Safari for Lunix.

No, other KHTML-based browsers don't count.

hideously overpriced by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Apr 03, 2008 at 03:17:11 AM EST
I dunno. If you're buying a complete system (including monitor and keyboard) the iMac is fairly competitive. If you look at the quality of the components they use. Compare the iMac with a similarly built Dell, for instance.

But, yeah, Safari sucks. I use Firefox on my Mac. And a Logitech mouse, because the Apple Mouse sucks, too.

iTunes by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #11 Thu Apr 03, 2008 at 07:09:07 PM EST
iTunes is pretty much a fact of life if you want to use an iPod and and iPhone.  But ya, Safari is shit.
