How to Hack a Mac in less time than it takes to cook a pop-tart (if you want it dark)...

Well, well, ladies and gentlemen... it's that time again. I realize that I have been shirking my Apple-Bashing responsibilities as of late, but this is one opportunity that I just could not pass up.

I appears that there was a big "hacker" convention the other day... the theme of this little get-together was, "If you can hack it, you can have it". Now, the average Mac fanboy would assume that millions of attendees walked away with free Windows PCs, but lo and behold... the MacBook Air was the FIRST machine to be hacked!!! Yes... that's right folks... not Windows... definitely not Linux... but instead, a Mac. And it only took two minutes to do it. Oh dear... this is so much fun I don't know where to start... how about I start by dispelling some of the feeble attempts that Mac fanboys are going to make to minimize this wondrous trouncing of an Apple product.

Apple charges a 5 dollar cover fee just to browse their store!

I just stumbled across this story about how Apple is going to start charging people a $5 entrance fee just to get into their Apple stores. Can you freaking believe that? Seriously... I thought I'd seen it all when it came to the ridiculous lengths of Apple's smug marketing and aloof users, but this one definitely takes the cake. This just cements Apple, and all of the preening tossers who use their products, as the pretentious goobers that I've always known them to be. Now, it's not like I've ever been tempted to go into an Apple store (lest I lose 50% of my IQ and start drooling out of the corners of my mouth), but there's no way on earth it's gonna happen now. Oh yeah... and it gets even better...

Apple takes a stab at Vista... and misses.

As vastly superior to Microsoft as Apple is, they (in their benevolence) will occasionally throw us poor Windows users a bone every once in a while. And it looks like that once in a while is right now (yay for us!!).  Just this week, Apple took a stab at porting their oh-so-popular browser (Safari) over to Windows Vista... unfortunately, they overestimated their ability to write anything other than fluffy apps that don't do anything useful. Laughing Apparently, this little bundle of Apple joy came with bugs, exploits, and a complete lack of standard features.

Just a quick link for y'all. One of my favorite internet writers has finally chimed in on Macs. Why am I not surprised which side he came in on? Tongue out

Maddox on Macs.

A buddy of mine who uses a Mac made me my very own Demotivator... I thought you all might like to see it.


now... we all know that it should say, "When you are too smart to run a Mac"... but hey... it's the thought that counts.

And since I'm such a thoughtful guy... I figured I'd make him his very own demotivator too...

I've spent so much time lately complaining about my unfortunate brush with the lousy new "Office 2007" (which I narrowly avoided , much to my delight), that I've completely forgotten to waste any of my time berating Apple computers and their pretentious users..... silly me! Cool

So let's rectify that little problem right now. I have not one.... not two.... but THREE different stories that I will use to ridicule Apple, and Macs, and Mac users, and pretty much anything Apple related in general. It should be loads of fun, so pull up a chair...

Best Mac Slam... ever.

I just thought I'd take a quick minute out of my busy day to pass along a very funny conversation I was witness to just recently. You see... I take pride in my Mac-bashing... I'd like to think... in some small way... that I'm actually good at it.... but alas... there are those who are much, much better than I am at pointing out the absurdities of Mac zealots... and here's a perfect example.

 (But first... a little backstory...)

The program I use to record audio is called Pro Tools. It was originally written for a Mac, so many of the "pro" studios who use PT run it on Macs. The fact that Macs are the "standard" platform for PT only feeds the "elitist" attitudes of Mac users who get into pro audio... ok... so now that you have the background... here's the funny part...

In my continuing quest for things I can use to make fun of Macs and Mac users as much as possible, I stumbled across a little article today about some very interesting vulnerabilities in the latest Macs.

It appears that a couple of hackers have found a way to completely take over a Macbook in mere seconds, using nothing but it's wireless connection. That's right... completely take over the machine. Not just plant some trojan on it... or run some spyware in the background... but gain complete control over your machine, as if they are sitting at the keyboard themselves (doing things like deleting all of your important files and saying mean things to your friends using your iChat).  Apparently, one of their motivations for presenting a demo of a Mac being hacked was what they called the "Mac user base aura of smugness on security". Which, as you all know... I would staunchly disagree with... I mean really... Mac users...? Smug...? That's just ridiculous!

Anyway... I would say that this is a pretty good find.... but that would be the understatement of the year... so I won't. Instead, I'll just tell you more about the hack (and how you can witness it yourself), while throwing in a couple stabs at Mac users, just for kicks.

Introducing the all new Mac/Windows love affair...

So... everybody and their mother knows that Apple said that they wouldn't do anything to hinder or support the installation of Windows XP on their new Intel Macs (commonly referred to as Mactels). And everybody and their dog knows that some guy won 13 thousand dollars by figuring out how to boot Windows XP on a Mac.... and now everybody and their pet fish knows that Apple went back on their original promise (of not doing anything to support Windows installs) by offering BootCamp, which allows any dumb shmoe a chance to boot Windows XP on his shiny new Mactel.

But my question is... where is all this mad Mac/Windows love coming from...???

You know... it seems like just last week that Mac users were sitting... all smug and metrosexual... in their coffee shops... wearing their ridiculously over-priced Diesel jeans... sipping their lattes... and feeling all secure in the "fact" that their computers were "safer" than the "inferior" Windows PCs of the "lesser" humans.


Oh wait.... that was just last week. AAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

And then... a little thing I like to call "reality" set it... and the ginormous myth that Mac's are "impervious" to viruses was dashed against the brutal rocks of inevitability.  For in one week's time we have seen not one..... not two.... but THREE viruses/security flaws appear on the radar screen.

And the best part about it is.... they just keep gettin' better.

Apple's (and my) latest dillema...

I just wanted to take this opportunity to point and laugh at Apple over its latest troubles.

As if all of Apple's previous problems weren't enough.... here they go again.... puttin' a happy smile on my skinny little face.

Apparently, someone has filed suit against Apple claiming that they're.... wait for it....



.....a monopoly!!!!



So I guess that cornering a whopping 3% of the global computing market has put them in dangerous territory with the DOJ.
