Mac’s are PC’s

I was watching TV when a ad came on for a local computer repair shop. In the ad they said “We repair Mac’s and PC’s.”. Made me sad that the one place that should know better is using the Mac vs. PC phrase. Apple didn’t help things with there ads “I’m a Mac. I’m a PC” but even they said publicly that they knew it was wrong. It just sounded really good in a ad. So to be clear Mac’s are personal computers just like all the ones that run Windows.

Also if you are talking about Apple’s line of computers, get this right. iMac are Apple’s desktop PC’s and MacBook’s are Apple’s laptop PC’s. Use the image below for Microsoft’s and Apple’s operating systems.

Review: Modern Warfare 3 Campaign

Its that time of year again. Time to find out how much you suck at life from some teenager high on junk food and pop. It is Call of Duty time in the form of Modern Warfare 3. But this time there are two main things that are working against it. COD has competition with the release of Battlefield 3 and the fact that this COD had three different developers working on it. Im going to only be covering the single player part of the game because I’m not very much into multiplayer.

You start right where Modern Warfare 2 ended and of course you are right in the middle of the action from the start. Your mission is to find and stop the Russian super terrorist Vladimir Makarov. That is it. There is not much more you need to know about the story and that is one of the biggest problems with the game. COD has a style that it has followed from the start with over the edge action. This is what made it stand out from the start but now its just over played and over used. You know from the start of every level that shit is going to hit the fan and its aimed right at you. You’re going to kill a lot of people, get yelled at and told what to do, and you can’t save the world without blowing up a few things. COD has become predicable and borderline boring.

What gets me the most is the lack of depth to the game. By that I mean everything that makes you feel like your in the middle of that action. COD does nothing to do that. It just puts you in the middle of a Hollywood action movie and tell you “Do everything this man says!”. To point this out we need to compare it to Battlefield 3.

The Story Of Bottled Water

Where I live they send out a news letter with your water bill. A few months ago they let us know that the water failed some test by something like 0.02%. You would need to drink so much water that you would make yourself sick before whatever limit they were over would be of any harm to you. Do you think Coke or Pepsi is going to tell you that about your bottled water?
