Last month, in Law Technology News‘ Tech Counsel column, California attorney Ed Siebel sang the praises of running his law office with Apple Inc. computers and peripherals. Today, I’m singing a different tune. In fact, right now, I’m completing an online ad to sell my Power Mac G5 Dual 2.7GHz computer.
I was suckered in by the hype about freedom from viruses, simplicity of computing and versatility. Instead, I bought a boat anchor that can’t view Web sites properly, is not compatible with Microsoft Word and can run only dumbed-down versions of regular software.
