Okay, I'm a little slow, I admit. I'd have to be to use a machine so many people say is a piece of junk, right But didn't the iBook come out *before* G4 Powerbook?

Here's a thought, maybe Apple is pushing the iBook because it's cheaper and more people will buy one. I know I was turned off buying a 3,000 dollar laptop but 1,200 dollars? Okay.
Now, for the questions.
Yes. I have since 1985 with no regrets.
And if you want to get into living on a previous reputation, let's...nah, it would take too long and you probably wouldn't listen, anyway.
Could you tell me how TMF supports such false behavior perpetrated by Apple? Anything solid you could point to?

If you are this miserable with Powerbook, I hope you sold it, 'cause there are a thousand people (me included) who would cheerfully snap it up.

Oh, one more thing. Are you and Karmi swapping jobs? Just curious.

Alright, I lied, this is the last thing. I have many, many friends who bought the shiny new Ti Powerbooks and they love 'em. Havne't a single problem. (But they wouldn't, it's an Apple after all)
