Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Okay, I'm crossposting this.

    See, my think with iPhones is like this.

    I fuckin' use my phones. I don't need to have something extremely pretty jangling around in my pocket with my change. I could see myself buying an iPod Touch and keeping it in a case, but my phone? I dunno.

    The Chocolate I bought last year is all fuckin scratched to hell. Seems like it'd be a shame to do that to an iPhone.

    I was worried about that with my Treo, but I just started putting change and keys in my other pocket.

    Left hip pocket is now designated phone pocket.

    so I was asking about this in another thread but this one seems more apt

    can mac computers play games pretty well. I know you can run windows on them now so compatibility isn't really a problem. I don't play that many different games at once so space wouldn't really be an issue either. games are pretty much the only thing that is preventing me from getting some sort of mac computer.

    and please this is not a mac vs pc thing, I know what a pc is like and am now enquiring about macs

    You can get the wow client for mac and you can emulate windows. I use Parallels, other people use Boot Camp, I've heard of others using VMWare.

    Pretty sure he's talking about hardware.

    Apple has been adopting more universalish hardware, from what I've seen, so I'd say that yes, Macs play games well.

    I fully intend to play SC2 on this MacBook Pro, for instance.

    fuck me I must have one.

    any word on a UK release?

    i held off on an iphone because, well, who the hell can afford to be an apple early adopter.

    but man, $199 is probably going to translate to £150-200 which I can totally swing.

    oh shit

    are games actually playable on these things?

    like, does the touchscreen actually work for games at all, or is it too clumsy to work?

    because I don't know what I'd do while I poop if I didn't have my motorcycle game.

    nah you can buy it for the ticket price from the mac store and activate it through itunes later

    but you can't use it without a contract, unless you hack it or whatever, so yeah you have to sign a two-year contract

    Does the thing vibrate or something when you hit keys? Tactile feedback is pretty important.

    by reducing the price and making it more accessible to the plebes, doesn't that inherently make it less hip?

    People still complain about Starbucks being hip. "Hip" doesn't actually have anything to do with the product, it's just a word people use to criticize when they can't think of anything better -- like "smug".

    Smug has a very clear definition, I suggest you look it up.
