corpCon: New Mac Mini, paying more for less

I do not own a Mac Mini - anyway, nobody 'owns' anything. You just 'lease it' for its lifespan. Anyway, my 27inch imac serves my home-bound purposes, so no need for that.

But, it seems that my allegations of Apple’s profiteering by the strategy of giving you less for the same price, and making more money off you by making you dependent on online subscription and purchase services, is further borne out by the new ‘Mac Mini’ - see, on Steve Jobs’ iCloud Bullshit and Consumer Social Responsibility.

No built-in DVD drive. Why? See the pic above - source.

If you think about it, this monopolisation of consumer funds has been going on for a long while. For instance, you cannot enjoy a proper Operating System like the Mac OS unless you buy a Mac. You are given less storage space so you have to consider paying for an online storage service like iCloud. With the ipad and iphone, you are not given usb or memory card slots so you’ll have to consider online subscription-based storage or pay more for the privilege of having more internal memory than the cost of memory cards and thumbdrives. Now, these motherhumpers are excluding dvd drives from the mac mini.

They are really doing their utmost to eradicate from human memory those days when storage space and dvd drives, and all alternatives to online storage, were an expected part of the product. Now, computer storage amongst others are becoming the 'alternatives' for which you'll have to pay more. Think about that. And people ought to just focus on how ‘sleek and sexy’ apple products look and not think 'too much'. You can be sure that others are going to be following suit.

When I look at the apple logo these days, it is beginning to resemble more like the consumers’ butt with a large chunk bitten off by Steve Jobs and his bourgeois buddies.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
