Even the two button mouse. I have a screen cap of this but I don't have a way to post it as of yet, but go to www.macosrumors.com/  and you'll see under the 15th's news items the following:

Apple will at long last deliver an innovative multi-button mouse in the not-so-distant future, according to sources.

Wow..an innovative mult-button mouse...that pc users have had for...2 decades? Way to be ahead of the curve apple Anyhow just anothey bit of funny humor to add to the Apple "we invented everything" file

I don't mind macs. At least Apple aim for quietness and succeed. Not to mention reliability, but that's a lot easier when there isn't such a wide range of options and components to casue conflicts. OSX is a nice OS too.

I came to terms that I may have to use one some day since I was studying web design and they are preffered by a lot of companies. Don't wana do that anymore though.

Actually even XEROX lifted it from other ideas that had been floating around universities and even the U.S. Air Force and NASA for a while lol.

Don't get me wrong, I like macs as well, but Apple's media machine is a bit overzealous.

LOL, I work with guy Who has only worked with macs untill he started working with me and I told him about the news and he said and I quote "Two buttons? What do you need more than one button for"

I'm thinking of getting a mac mini when I get some extra cash

Yeah they just did a mac review of doom 3 and the long and short of it is that even with the fastest mac on the planet, don't go to lan parties with your pc toting friends because a machine that costs about $1500 on the PC side can beat any mac at any price at that game, or just about any other.

I have studied colour psycology as part of my web design coruse. Blue is a relaxing colour and buying PCs is a stressful thing for most so blue helps to calm people visiting the site. My shop colour sceme will match the site/logo. It's all part of my big idea for a busniess plan. I'll revolutionise the way PC shops deal with customers. I have big plans

As for the advertising... it's not so much that. In truth most people here are from the US. Even UK folks will have no interest, I only sell locally. No shipping or Internet orders for me. I like to deal with customers face to face and a return to base waranty is sooo much easier (at least for starting out). Even better I can call out to customers houses if need be.

No what this ,once again, is for web design reasons. Internal links from relevant sources (i.e. other PC related sites such as these forums) improve my search engine raking (this process is know as search engine optomisation - SEO). Since I have seen even individual threads from this highly ranked site appear on google I thought I'd take advantage of it.

I hope no one minds this? I'm not using forum resources (it's externally hosted) and many people have sig pics. After all I've put into the forums I hope no-one would mind me taking a little back out
