I buy computers, because I want programmable tools that I can use for my purposes. I don't buy game consoles. As Apple pursues the game consolization of the Mac, many of us who are "experiencing the transition" are finding the Mac less and less appealing, but Apple is after the general consumer electronics market. They're making it clear that they can happily do without people like me--there just aren't enough of us to matter.

And ironically, despite caring less and less about users like me, they still get my business, because the other computer makers are degrading so badly.

If only someone were interested in making a computer for the rest of us [sigh...]
