Mac Users Are More Fashionable Than PC Users, Study Finds (INFOGRAPHIC, PHOTOS)

Commented Mar 11, 2012 at 12:42:27 in Style

“Interest and funny ( :) )...

To be honest we tried Mac, buts it not for everyone... Its really user preference not about who is cooler.... I prefer PC due to many of the games and software, we tried Mac and some of the software etc (we had lasts year Mac Book Pro 2011 model) but I got frustated (some of my favorites required me to do bootcamp {which i dont feel should need too...use a PC}) and Office for Mac... ugh my wife gave up after two hours of doing lesson plans... nothing seem to save even the format as messed up (and it would not open up my paper i was doing for a class i was taking).....

Bottom line, its user preference knocking each other is stupid...and pointless and I did enjoy reading your story, those i like...”

Shantelle Hicks, Pregnant 8th Grader, Outed To New Mexico School Assembly (VIDEO)

“NO SHE DID NOT. It was between her and her family who are you to state that she had to. There are laws and privacy laws that deal with that. What the school did was break the law.”

“So, publicly humiliating a girl and violating her privacy is ok with you? How would you feel if they did that too you? THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT, and i am glad they are getting sued, not only will they lose it will hurt the school and the kids that go there, but I guess its ok to humiliate her then.”

Lawsuit: Catholic Chicago High School Expelled Student Over Her Hearing Disability

“Actually known disabilities would have given her an IEP which means that even if that school was private it still had to conform to state laws in dealing with a child who has a disability... and had you followed the embedded links you would have read the actual article and the school said behavior issues, not listening... will maybe if she could her maybe that was the problem....

But then again the school admin can no wrong... its always the the accusers etc fault isn't it? If the child has a doctor's written note stating that she has sevre hearing issue and the school did nothing.. THINK HARD before replying...”

“This is a private school we are talking about. They are not held accountable for IEP's, 504's and special education in the way public schools are. I work in a suburban Chicago high school and have two students who use assistive hearing devices in my classes. As a public school we do everything possible to make these students successful. The parents in the article made a choice to put their daughter in a private school. This is one of the consequences. People don't realize that private schools may not in fact be the best placement for a child with special needs.”

“No reason for a snide answer here, but the post still stands. The other side of the story is absent and all if not most of the article INCLUDING the embedded links only take statements from the lawsuit being filed, and that only represents the plaintiff's side of the story. We have no idea if the girl indeed had behavioral problems that far exceeded her hearing impairment. Maybe she used it as an excuse to not listen to faculty? The fact is, we don't know the whole story. It could very well be the administration's fault, but there would need to be an investigation to see what happened over the course of the years.”

“No the dont... I had PCs run longer than some people's Macs i know about.... They are no better no worse than PCs... Oh and a lot of the new software out there will no run on older Macs where as said software will... But then its personnal preference... And wasting money on clothing is superficial, nothing wrong with a $10 pair of rustler jeans than last 10x longer than some hip store...etc”

“No they are not... I had one, for a few months not only was it a pain it proved to be an expensive paperweight (MacBook Pro 2011)... So No Macs really are not superior they just appeal to people who want to waste $$”

“Hi Sandburg!I am glad that you are happy with your PC. Let's face it...It's all about personal choices. I love my MAC and glad you are happy with your PC.
I can tell you a funny story...One evening I was seated next to Bill Gates at a rather large fundraisers. After all the niceties Bill ask me ...So are you a Mac or PC.
I smiled and said, "Let me say my 5 year old son is a wizard on the computer..."
And how pleased I am that my son is learning so much via the computer..." When was time for him to go up and spoke and turn around ask me..."May, I speak of your son and his experience on the computer?" My rely, "Of course ..." He ask me his name and I had to tell him ...My son's name is Mac...I swear I actually got divorce over this very topic." He couldn't stop laughing...Oh shall I address you Mrs. Staples?" No, just Mac's mom. Even Bill knows we all have our favorite computer.”
