G5 Violated!

“How I PC’d an Apple G5”

There are NO words to describe my utter shock and abhorrance for this dickhead. He gets a G5 for a GIFT! Who the hell gets a G5 for a GIFT?

Ok that’s not what I’m truly shocked at. He dissembowels it so he can whack PC bits in it so he can run Windows XP, apparently he wanted a Dell (Dill or Hell) not a G5!

Where are the Apple police when you need them!

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.

    Ignoring the whole Apple violation, he wanted a Dell? People should be shot on sight for even uttering that phrase. Fuckwits who want Dells wouldn’t know it’s even possible to mod a PC, so I’m thinking this guy is a troll

    Techworld notes that G5 Case Mod is a hoax:

    …he simply filled it with PC workings and then photographed his own working G5 with the side of the case off. Concocting a far-fetched anecdote around the wheeze and sending it off to a website was probably not the best move however. In a matter of two days he claims to have received 1,300 messages of contempt, disgust and incomprehension.

    Thanks to ginshirou for confirming that Dell-tard is not only a troll, but the G5 violation was a hoax

    I’m surprised he didn’t get any death threats

    There’s an update from the original article with a note from the wingnut behind the hoax. Does the suggestion from one mortified Mac aficionado that he “should be hung by his testicles and lit on fire” count as a death threat?
