    We only have laptops for everyone at work, even designers. If they reduce my workspace any further, I probably will have to quit :-)

    You only get laptops in my company if you need one. The computer I currently use is about 2-3 years old I think, possibly older. We just upgraded to W7 and some people got new computers.

    I can give you a slight insight to the idea. In a large operation space is a premium. I know that Apple haven't got many large enterprise clients, besides themselves, but more and more companies are trying to reduce workstation space down. There was a trial here of a new setup but it either isn't going ahead or they're waiting for the 'right' time to introduce it. The desk space will be a lot smaller.
    Okay, if a company thinks that saving half of the space of a workstation (while making space for extensions) is better than having all these drawbacks, this is fine.

    Mine is about 1.5 years old. We get new ones every 3 years or so...

    I'm just pointing out a possibility. I think the Mac Pro is neat but I would never buy one. I got an Apple Fan boy next to me, he admits to being one, though he likes it he couldn't justify the price. They are powerful for their size and the tech is neat.

    No idea what the cycle is here. :P I sometimes get the impression the computers are used until dead. :P

    Until dead for us is when warranty runs out which is 3years. So if you complain after the warranty runs out they just give you a new laptop.

    I don't argue against it being an amazing piece of hardware. I'd take one any time if I got it without paying for it. I just think Apple went too far only because they could go too far. But maybe I'm wrong, I have never heard any numbers of how well this thing is being sold.

    I don't think the 'average' person would buy it. It's obviously a specialty device or for someone with way too much money. I think most people buy laptops and Apple know this. I don't see many being bought.

    When I worked at other large companies that was typical. However, here it seems to be different. I get the feeling these computers we have are ove 5 years old. So not sure what kind of leasing thing they got going. I think they just started changing some to newer models and I got the impression I wouldn't get a new one until I needed it. Whatever that means.

    Well, Facebook declined my legitimate request to get my account back after it got disabled for "a reason i should have known why" Which i actually don't know why it was blocked, i spammed them with offensive images with details i won't go into.

    This I find very confusing. If you spammed them with offensive images this was probably the reason you should know?

    I had an issue getting one of my Hotmail emails reinstated. So I know how you feel. I lost a lot of stuff because of it. Not sure why Facebook does what it does. It has a problem with nipples but will allow hate and violent pages. I don't get it. Very typically American though...

    If that's even possible. :P Lots of these companies make it very difficult to contact them. I had to dig a bit to report a bug on Instagram.

    Well, then I would have done what I have done, just delete the account and never look back, or in this case let it just be deleted. I just don't like the idea of spamming them. ;-)

    Let's change subjects. I came out of the elevator and saw one of the microbiology professors, and asked him how to pronounce the name of a guest professor I have to introduce tonight and will have lunch with soon. Just as I was finishing my question, this guest professor came around the corner and said: "I'm right here, you pronounced it right."

    At least he knows my face now ;-)

    Yeah, i am never going back to Facebook, the only conclusion to think why i was blocked was because my avatar was of somebody else, but in a humorous matter.

    Will try Twitter eventually though, but Instagram is the only Social network i'll be continuously on for a while to come...

    That's always funny when things like that happen. I'm terrible with names. I try my best though.

    They blocked you because your avatar was a picture of someone else??? Really? If that's true, that's very lame. It's not like you were pretending to be that person. :/

    I'm not a fan of Twitter. I'm happy with Instagram so far but I don't get into the whole 'social network' part of it. I never used G+ and though I have a Pintrist account I don't really use it. Another other social network I'm completely ignorant of.

    On a more positive topic, i am very convinced to get a Moto G, and i am suprised how solid the Nexus 5 is, heck my Resident former iOS now Windows Phone fanboy father even admitted to being impressed by the Nexus 5.

    But i'm still heavily considering the Moto G. :)
