Well now what? (My new laptop)

MacBook ProWe have a handful of computers in our house. My Desktop, my wife’s Desktop, our media/backup server, and a netbook. The netbook’s job was relatively simple. It lived in the back room of our house hooked up to a couple of things: Our rarely-used printer/scanner, and my MakerBot 3D printer. Over the past few months I had contemplated getting a replacement for the netbook.


But *my* phone already does that…

Today was the iPhone OS 4 announcement/meeting/thing – Basically a press conference for Apple to tell the world how awesome they are. This is not an uncommon thing and the reaction isn’t uncommon, but I am getting tired of it. It goes something like this:
Me: “Hey Cool, iPhone OS 4 has multi-tasking in it”
iPhone Detractor: “[Android|Palm|WinMo] has had multi-tasking forever, iPhone is lame, and you suck.”

Or possibly:

iPhone detractor: “Apple fanboys are so thick-headed. They always talk about how awesome the iPhone is, but [Android|Palm|WinMo] has been doing since version x.x and it has feature y…(ad nauseum)”
