Lycorne, you're knowledgeable. Where would one 1. Find some awesome/hilarious macros and 2. Upload them onto Facebook and/or LJ??

No idea, unfortunately. I think most people upload theirs to photobucket or tinypic though.

Definitely an Oh, Snap! I do like my iMac and iPod Touch, but my loyalty isn't strong enough to ignore the stuff Apple has been doing in regards to openness. That may be part of the reason I got an Android OS phone, which is apparently developing a pretty good market for apps to compete with Apple. They used to be better than this, now they're becoming jerks.

I personally never liked Apple much, and they've been pulling anti-competitive crap with their platforms for a long time now. What with the un-upgradable systems except by Apple itself and etc. It's just become more and more blatant, and I'm happy that they've never gotten my money.

I only started liking in the last couple of years, but the fact I want my next computer to be a non-Apple OS should say something. The iMac is a work computer, not the play one. Stupid exclusivity, can't get my games.

Not that I'm the biggest Adobe/Flash fan myself, but Apple has been crossing the line something awful these days. I'm happy to watch them get taken to the curb a little.

It's just funny because I am a fan of neither as well. And the apple fanboys have really made me shun them even more...

Woah, woah, when did Adobe and Mac start having issues with each other??? Does this mean I can finally use Photoshop on my PC and not be told I'm doin' it wrong? :D

Oh. I'm sorry. You've missed the code minkee dramu that's exploded over the past couple of months.

Adobe and Mac started having issues back with Photoshop.
- Mac has leveled up their already Microsoft dictator evil overlord anti-competitive business practices to start blocking anyone they don't like from developing on their platform.
- Specifically, anything not developed from the get-go in an "Apple Approved Language" will not be allowed on Apple mobile devices/App store at all. This new stance is somewhat expected to move on to their other platforms soonish. Unapproved languages include Flash, C++, etc.
- Steve Jobs said in recent press conferences that they will never support Flash, Flash is dead and no one uses it, it is especially useless on the internet, has implied that Adobe is a dinosaur that essentially needs to be killed off, and that everyone should and will move over to these "open" and Apple-approved formats (h.264, HTML5, etc). These formats jobs approves coincidentally are "open" right now, but are patented such that they could be made closed at the will of the owners, and oh-hey-Jobs-has-partial-rights-ownership-in-them-haha-imagine-that.
- Steve Jobs decided to "clean up" the apps store removing any and all apps determined to contain "inappropriate content". He was also quoted as saying that if people wanted porn, they could buy an Android. Meanwhile Android said, thanks Steve, we'll happily take the extra user-base.
- Oh yes, Apple lawyer also sicced the police on a professional tech blogger's personal home, breaking down the door, confiscating equipment, and etc using a turned-out-to-be invalid warrant after a found iPhone 4 prototype was willingly returned to them as soon as they requested it and the prototype was no longer in said blogger's possession.
- And much much more, but those are the biggest ones.

It has been everyone now sees Apple-turning/is-evil-and-anti-competitive shit fest for months now.

DAMN, I have missed a lot!! I wonder why Jon and Stephen haven't been talking about this, since they're my only source of news. XD I want to discuss it with Cliff now. As an IP lawyer, I bet he'll have a lot to say.

I honestly had no idea there was a war to begin with. I don't really care for the matter because I dislike drama and don't know about the situation as a whole. Nor am I going to find out. I mean, it's not like it's the first time companies went after each other in an in-your-face and/or [pseudo-]behind-the-scenes styles. What I will say, like I say for all the other unnecessary happenings, is that it's most unfortunate.

Thanks for the information. I didn't quite understand the post at first, but this explains it now. I is no stupid no more. (?)

That? Made me laugh hard. I'm on neither side, but I can't wait to see retaliation!
