Why John Dvorak Is An Idiot

Thanks to BadAndy for this quote. It just cements that John Dvorak(technology media critic, cohost of TWiT) is a loudmouth idiot with no sense of what the public wants or thinks is cutting edge.

"The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a mouse. There is no evidence that people want to use these things." - John Dvorak, 1984

*darts for the elevator*

Its a *headdesk* day...

Had a pretty disturbing dream last night. Was more or less a recap of times i spent with my high school girlfriend. A personal highlight reel, you could say. Our first date, our first kiss, first time realizing i had fallen in love with her, first time telling her this, first time i broke her heart, first time i came back to her to make it right, School musicals, Band outings, concerts, scary theatre moments, dances, dates at Cantera 30 movie theatre, more dances, quick moments walking her to class, prom, late nights at her house, valentines day, her Gap Happy perfume.

The fights.

The make ups.

Leaving for college. Leaving her. Wishing i didnt.

She was probably the most loyal and caring person i have ever known or was with. She would do anything for anyone at the drop of a hat. I did some pretty shitty things to her, and i figure its karma that came back to bit me in the ass in college. I didnt hit her or cheat on her or anything like that, you all know me better than that. I could have afforded her the same loyalty and honesty she afforded me.

I miss that kind of feeling. I miss feeling content like that.
