    I have been trying to order a new computer through the Microsoft Store since, I shit you not, Saturday. My order has been cancelled twice and nobody at Microsoft knows why. The cancellation and re-order has fucked up my bank account because the bank puts the money on hold as soon as the order is placed and Microsoft sends its initial... whatever the fuck they send to the card company. I had to go through all sorts of shit to get my bank to let go of the pending money so I could re-order. 2nd cancellation by Microsoft, so once again that money is on hold. Now I'm supposed to wait up to 48 hours for some special team of Microsoft nerds to get ahold of me to fix the problem.

    I'm just about ready to scrap all Microsoft products for good and getting a fucking Apple.

    Soooooooo pissed off right now.

    I am. I own an ASUS for a laptop, though, however I bought that 7 years ago. But I own an iPhone and iPad and will own a MacBook eventually. I'm not a big Windows guy anymore.

    Windows 10 works like a charm, with the proper apps and some time to tweak the system. Apple OS takes a lot less work to set it up. I just don't think the difference is so big nowadays with some work on your windows OS and a decent hardware. And it's far cheaper to not go Apple...

    TMC, I agree regarding Windows 10. Been MS best OS in quite some time.

    I have an ASUS too, that I've had for over 10 years. It's worked like a charm. And still going strong.
    I had a choice with my work laptop, pc or mac, so I chose mac just to get used to using one as that is what most people use for music software.
    It's good too, but probably not worth the extra bucks if I had to buy it. I hear PC music editing software is catching up to the Mac anyway.
    Just bought my son a Dell gaming laptop for around $800. I'll let you know how that performs.

    I fucking hate Apple, and have never, nor will I ever buy one of their products.

    OJ Simpson's life story arch is so unique. He's gone through it and been given so much grace.

    Surprisingly, Edge is really good and getting better. Best part of Chrome are the extensions, but Edge is getting more and more each time.

    I've been giving a chance to the new Firefox Quantum, just released, and it's great as well. Runs faster than Chrome (Edge does as well) and has a lot of useful features. Interface is a bit of personal taste, tho, but it runs great.

    Basically, avoid Opera. Best part of Opera is that it includes a VPN, but it's not exactly a reliable one. And the rest of the browser is not comparable to any of the other mentioned.

    Chrome is the best in terms of customization, due to the huge amount of extensions available, but it's slower than Edge and the new Firefox and is a bit of a resource hog (not an issue if you're only going to use it for web browsing, but it's an issue if you try to do other things, like watching Netflix on your computer). Gotta try the Firefox Quantum extensively yet, but so far, it's good. But I love the new Edge, just lacks the customization options of Chrome.

    So use Chrome and Edge, pending on what you're going to use it for. Can't really go wrong with any of them.

    Did you guys catch Kanye saying on TMZ that slavery for 400 years is "a choice"? Really? That's not only obviously false, it's a very dangerous narrative for the days we live in right now.

    Blaming slavery on the slaves? Nice move, sh*thead. He better has some kind of mental problem, because I don't like the rest of the options...

    That dude has lost his mind. I mean clearly he NEEDS attention and has done things in the past simply to get people to talk about him. I cant imagine the trump thing and now the slavery thing is just promotion as it seems alienating your entire fan base is not the best approach.
