Steve Jobs Can Kiss My Nethers

Great. Another triumphant Macworld Keynote. My poor iMac G5 now feels much the same as Maria Anna Mozart. Sure, honey. You were all good and wonderful and played music very well. But now your baby brother Wolfie has come along with his prodigious talent and Intel Chips the size of billiard balls. Congrats. You are now a footnote in the history of greatness.

Now now, just because your Mac has been outclassed doesn't mean it's been made useless. My li'l 1 gHz iBook G4 is still quite the trooper. Someone I know has decade-old Apple boxes sprinkled throughout his home.

Apparently having old Macs in the home disqualifies one from being tagged. I hate not being in the "in" crowd. No... too late... I don't want your pity-tags.

I didn't think you played Memes. I don't know if P&L do, but I tagged them anyway...;-p

The next time I'm tagged...which'll be like 2013 at this rate, I'll tag you. So there.

We're living proof that having old Macs around the house doesn't disqualify one from much of anything. (With the possible exception of sitting at the cool kids' table.) We've got at least one of virtually every old Mac model you can imagine tucked away in closets, the garage, etc. They're like old friends that I just can't bring myself to part with.

I've even got an old PowerBook 170 - and I actually still use it on occasion. Sometimes I'm half tempted to take it into the Apple store and ask, with a straight face, if there's anything that I can do to upgrade it.
