New Mac owners: ignore this article. It’s clear that Matt Buchanan is more interested in media releases and PR than actually using a Mac.
Take this one passage, for example:
“8. Forget Apple TV, Stream to Your Xbox or PS3: If you’ve already got an Xbox 360 or PS3 (who doesn’t?) there’s no reason to bother with another media streamer, even if you’re ditching Windows. The programs Connect 360 and Rivet will stream music, movies and photos from your Mac to your Xbox for $20.”
If Buchanan has actually ever used Connect 360 he’d realize that it doesn’t work worth a damn. And Rivet? Even a geek has nightmares about using it.
So, actually, do the opposite of what Buchanan suggest. But still buy a Mac.
