 I can't watch the video because Quick Time doesn't work right on my computer (typical Apple product).

OK then, I thought there might have been mention of the new computer with the Nehalem processor, 8-core with room for 32G Ram, 4 cable-free drive bays  and a 4870 video card running vista??

Just thought I'd pop in here to comment on the quantity of thermal paste to use to apply to a CPU head spreader. A glob the size of a pea is WAY too much.  A more reasonable size equivalent is the size of a grain of rice; apply it to the heat spreader and spread it out with a razor blade. The first time you do this it should seem like it's not enough and take several minutes to do, but that's exactly how it should be, you want it as thin as possible.

I know I know it's a Mac, but I thought there might have been mention of the new Mac Pro with the Nehalem processor, not necessarily about the Mac but the processor itself.

There are assholes on both sides, PC and Mac ... and Linux :p

 

I don't see a problem in using what you want. I use Mac AND Windows ... :)

And I think Gordon is confusing Mac users with apple apologists :D

Just saw the abc newscast about the debate. Probably the most unprofessional newscast ever. "Let's see your shoes..." also, I like how the geekiest mac item is to hide "personal" files from others. ahem, pr0n. at least capital ships can't get you arrested.

"P.S." means "post script" (or some say the Latin "post scriptum"), literally meaning "after the writing".  It indicates that what comes next is more of an afterthough than a part of the original message.

Wait, you have an IT department? It has to be a pretty awkward or totally awesome relationship. I am leaning towards awkward.

Sometimes awesome, sometimes awkward.

I can't wait to see what happens when they secretly replace Gordon's PC with a shiny new MacBook Pro though.

I can only imagine the fireworks that would happen after a prank like that.

 

Nice work on the interview Will. Its hard to be professional when the interviewer is looking to incite a stereotypical flamewar, but you managed to stay classy all the way through (even when he asked to see your shoes :P). 

BTW, did you two plan on dressing like the Mac vs PC ads, or was it just coincidence?
