I really appreciate Strack & Van Til‘s effort to educate the consumer, but maybe something like “aids digestion” would be more appropriate than “prevents constipation” and “blocks diarrhea.” What does that even mean? “Apples, they make you go, but not go too much!”
I was annoyed when I got my MacBook Pro at work and the magsafe magnetic power cord connector was different than the one used on my home MacBook pro. I had to carry my powercord home to use my work computer at home. What a pain! Then our IT guy was like “duh, you can still use the old cord on it, it just looks different.” Well, whattaya know!
On this diagram, my home computer looks like C, and my work one looks like A, but they are interchangeable.
I guess I like the updated connector better. With the older one the cord sticks straight out and then has to bend, which can be an issue. With the newer one, the connector is slimmed down more and the cord sticks straight back without having to bend.
…that I use constantly every day both in my personal life and for work. iPhone (3GS), iPad (2), MacBook Pro (I have 2 of them). In addition, Dallas supports iOS at work and has the iPhone (4) and the iPad (1). The first computer I remember using was an Apple IIGS. Always Macs in school, right? After high school I had a departure into PC-land, but I have been using one Apple product or another for the past eleven years or so.
My favorite quote from this address: ““Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.” —President Obama last night on the passing of Steve Jobs
