but Macs run Windows . . .

The Apple / Microsoft ad war keeps escalating — while Apple continues to insist that John Hodgman is the human representation of all PCs, Microsoft is taking its populist approach to the streets. Very specific streets, actually — it’s placing “I’m a PC” recording booths outside of Apple stores

[From Microsoft placing “I’m a PC” recording booths outside Apple stores – Engadget]

So this is actually about protecting the hardware vendors and their own sweet pre-loaded arrangements, No one buys Windows, do they? They buy a new machine and that’s that.

I feel so spatial

Your result for Howard Gardner’s Eight Types of Intelligence Test…

Spatial

“This area has to do with vision and spatial judgment. People with strong visual-spatial intelligence are typically very good at visualizing and mentally manipulating objects. They have a strong visual memory and are often artistically inclined. Those with visual-spatial intelligence also generally have a very good sense of direction and may also have very good hand-eye coordination, although this is normally seen as a characteristic of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include artists, engineers, and architects.” (Wikipedia)

Some of the folks in the “Film is not dead, it just smells funny” Flickr group are down on cross-processing (processing E6 slide film in print or C-41 chemistry: you end up with negatives instead of positives and can get all kinds of wild color shifts and contrasty weirdness).

So I found it interesting that this image made it into the curated pool.
