Re: Apple is entering the censorship game....

Every 5 years I bought my mom the latest little square thing I could find in ebay. A new monitor here or there... No more fixing the computer every freaking holiday.

I hate Apple but I love my mac. I live in a Linux world using a Windows box is painful so I don't.
