Now most of you that follow me or know me personally know that I am not an Apple whore. I respectfully am a “PC” user and will continue to be. Ive been using Windows 7 since its inception. Before that I mainly used Windows XP and for a short time Vista which I didnt really like its buggy UI. Now we are upon yet another Windows release this Friday Oct 26, 2012 for Windows 8. The newest OS version for Microsoft.
So the purpose of this post? Well its simple. Just read the title again. Is it worth it? Like I said, I have been using Windows products for years and I still continue to do so. Earlier this year I took part in testing the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I decided what the hell and upgraded my current Windows 7 build to the new platform. The downfall? You have to backup everything JUST IN CASE you have problems. Not really an issue with me. I tend to backup my files quite often. In my case it was easy. I downloaded the Consumer Preview and it ran a test to make sure my system could handle the new version. I passed with flying colors. AMD Phenom X4 Proc running currently 8GB of RAM was no issue for the software. So I decided to install or rather upgrade my existing 7 to the new build since I had already done a backup. I normally have two hard drives in my system so backing up is quite simple. What takes forever……backing up my HUGE library of movies and music. About 100 GB of movies and 24 GB of music. The install didnt take long at all. Basically it just replaced the UI with the new one and all my features and settings were saved.
So I booted up to the new W8 and in the beginning I was like….. “WHOA THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!” Well the tile screen is pretty cool. Most might not like it especially the Apple whores but I could dig it. Basically in a nutshell what W8 is is an updated GUI to W7. When you boot up you are taken to the lock screen. From here you click on the screen or swipe up on the touchscreen monitor if you have one. Also assuming you have already gone through the basic setup processes you normally see when first booting a new system. Everything is custom to your taste. I wont go into too much detail. When you click the desktop tile you are taken to your desktop which looks just as Windows 7. The tile screen or home screen is nifty if you have hotmail. You can also set up other accounts if I remember correctly. The weather tile is neat. YOu can enter which cities you want to view and it will animate them quite nicely. Same with sports. Just choose your favorite teams!
Ok so as I said I didnt want to go into much detail about W8 because you can just go to http://www.microsoft.com and see for yourself what it does. Or check out You Tube. Here is my thoughts on the new OS. I like it but if you are looking for a huge change in the looks of W7 to W8 your not going to get much change except for the tile home screen. The desktop still displays as W7 style. You can still change your colors and wallpapers and screensavers. So not too bad eh? lol. The BIGGEST difference I think people will notice is the interface for the tiles to be honest. The kicker is….if you dont have a touch screen monitor display then you aren’t going to get much out of the new Windows version! Period! Ever notice when you go out to eat or to a bar and the waiters/waitresses use a touch screen to enter your orders? Thats basically Windows 8 tile screen. Sure you can do plenty with a touch screen display but if your still clicking a mouse to navigate through windows and tasks then this is not the version for you. Its to me a waste of money to upgrade or purchase the software and do a clean install simply to get the tile interface when the desktop still looks like W7.
I figure this will not be a prime seller for Microsoft. I think most people prefer Windows XP and many are getting used to Windows 7. I tell people all the time that if they want to upgrade from XP then they will need a computer with a much faster processor and much more memory. 1 or 2GB of RAM is not feasible for 7. W8 will require just as much or more RAM. So keep in mind that if you are running a much older computer then don’t even bother trying to run W7 or w8. That is the reason you are complaining about the software now because your hardware doesnt meet up to the demands. ALso, when you buy a system keep in mind that the parts used by these manufacturers can and will go defective! I really suggest having an external hard drive of some sort to save ALL of your files. Or just use a flash USB drive. You can get them fairly cheap nowadays. Partition your hard drive to a system partition and then another for data. I always know how much I need because I use the same programs all the time. In fact I keep a clone of my OS on another hard drive so that when I want to do a clean install all I have to do is copying my backed up files to the clean install after I clone it. Makes it so much easier. I just dont see this as a huge seller for Microsoft. Sorry guys love your software but this isnt the direction Microsoft should be taking.
I dont like Apple but lets face it, Steve Jobs knew where to take his company. Its one reason they have such flagship products. We are talking computers here though not phones or tablets. Apple’s MAC OS is nice. In fact if I was to actually use any Apple product it would be A MAC not one of their phones. Their OS is smooth and sleek and in geek terms….sexy! lol. Its not bogged down with lots of crap. Very basic look and feel. In the end people want something that will produce for them rather than crash or freeze. Now as a Windows user I dont get viruses or freezes. I also don’t run virus software. Then again each of us has different web surfing habits. For one I dont view much porn. Sure Im a guy I see a pair of tits sometimes. If I didnt i’d be worried about myself eh? lol. I can get real ass if I want it. LOL. What im getting at though is that Microsoft should really look into making a sleek OS like MAC. Not clone it but make one that is sleek and easier on a CPU and doesn’t take 3 minutes to shutdown. Come on lets face it….many of you complain that your system takes 3 minutes to shutdown. Mine running Windows 7 Ultimate takes about 10 seconds and its off. lol. MACs are quick. You shutdown and it says…..ok board we are shutting the fuck down ZZZzzzzZZZZZzzzzzz! No seriously they are off quick! Another feature that MAC has won over the PC is the charger. the Magnetic charging unit is sweet. No plugging shit in and it getting loose. Just let it magnetize to the laptop and bam your off and charging. So yes Microsoft needs to really re-invent their products in an entirely new way.
In the years since Microsoft came out with the Xbox Gaming Console I believe that they concentrate more on the gaming aspect of business rather than the productivity side. Many businesses still use Windows based server setups but many are converting to MAC. They need to really concentrate more on the OS platform and let the Xbox junkies do their thang. Microsoft lost quite a bit of credibility when they released Windows Vista to a much annoyed legion of users. It was buggy and just slow. 7 was a huge update to that and I love 7 but they need to really concentrate more on the OS and let the Xbox team do their work. I’d like to sit here and say I am still using Windows 8 but I am not. Your probably asking why or your saying BWHAAHAHAHAAHA. The reason I am not running the Consumer Build is because of just that. It is a Consumer Build and it does expire. I mean you know they want you to actually BUY the software lol. So I just decided to revert back to 7 and do a clean install. Or else I would have kept 8 running. I also do not have a touch screen display so you can see where that would not be fun. At the same time I wouldnt really want to have a touch screen display anyways. I hate little bits of dust and fingerprints on my monitor now so why would I want to spend hours touching my screen and filling it full of fingerprints and oil?!?
So bottom line….if you want the new look and have a touch screen display then by all means you will enjoy the new Windows 8. Believe me there are so many other awesome new features in it. You just have to watch the videos to discover them all. I mean if your going to spend your hard earned money on something you want to review it first right? So check out the videos. If you don’t care for the new look then stick with XP or 7. If your on Vista please man upgrade to 7 at least though. Get away form that slow shit. OH and upgrade your computer memory and shit! Also bear in mind the hard drive is most likely one of the slower models. You can upgrade to a faster RPM hard drive or just go to the new standard of today….solid state drives! They are expensive though but worth the cost!
…so i finally went over 70,000 views. not really a big deal considering i been doing this for a few years but hell its all good.

I guess I should get dressed now and go run these errands.
ooooooooooh i need to return these Redbox movies.
The RED paint on the pavement/curve at Redbox locations is NOT I REPEAT NOT Redbox parking you lazy mother fuckers! Park in a designated spot! Sheesh! No wonder some ppl look like they do!
SOrry for my lack of blog updates lately. Been busy. Well kinda sorta….Been hitting up hockey games. Got season tix ya know lol. Hopefully those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had a nice holiday and didnt eat too much. Two plates of food total for me. Can’t pig out! So anyways, nothing really new in my neck of the woods. Just chillin and enjoying life. I can tell you one thing…..I did NOT participate in the Black Friday sales. That shit is fucked up. Really! I mean some psycho woman pepper sprayed some people for a fucking XBOX 360 Kinect, someone stabbed another person because they wanted their spot in line, people getting robbed out in the parking lots…..etc. It’s fuckin nuts. Like George Carlin always said…..There are 3 kinds of people in this world….Stupid, full of shit and fuckin nuts. Black Friday shoppers are all three! lol…
IM not even sure who all reads my blogs anymore. Maybe just a few select folks. Im sure most of you that read them are people I know. Then I have those that read my blogs and dont even respond. Kinda sucks. I mean I come on here to voice my opinions and fucked up thoughts and no one really comments but the same folks. Oh well. Fuck it. IM not going to beg people for comments.
So ive been in the festive mood lately. Got a small ass xmas tree up. NO really….its small. lol. I even got a cheesy ass stocking out and some other small shit. Kinda getting back on the subject of shopping, I dont plan to hit up these stores until the madness ends. Of course I know the stores will be busy but eventually all the Black Friday/weekend sales will be over and stuff will go back to more normal pricing. Of course I dont mind going shopping with my female friends because well….im fuckin good at it. As I type this I am checking a website for a company I get stuff from to get a couple of Android tablets. No tax! Yeah you gotta have a reseller license for that. There is also this really cool R/C Helicopter im looking at. $34 bucks and its normally alot more. Might snag one. They only got 9 in stock.
So anyways, im fucking bored right now. Im fucking horny and I neeed some damn pussy. Yeah im quite straight forward about it. FUck it. I mean its a natural thing. I just really want to grab some girl put her in doggie grab her neck and fuck the shit out of her….slap that ass and well…get kinky. Was supposed to skydive over this weekend but had some bullshit happen so I had to cancel my plans for my jump. Oh well, many other opportunities to jump. Can’t wait til I can get my AFF license so I dont have to tandem anymore!
SO im sitting here watching TV and this Trojan Vibrations commercial comes on. LOL. This shit is funny. Supposedly this thing is for women. Im sure a woman will get off more with a Hitachi or big ass dildo. You know I was listening to Playboy Radio the other day and its true…I dont see why many men get bitchy when it comes to women and toys. So what if your woman has one and wants to use it. In fact pull that mother fucker out and use it on her. THen fuck her brains out! lol. I mean what woman really enjoys hopping in a bed, taking her panties off and saying “ok im ready, fuck me.” Thats lame bullshit. Sex needs to be fuckin kinky. I laugh actually when women think porn is gross. WTF do they think it is when they fuck their husbands/boyfriends?? Your basically making porn….its just not being filmed….or is it??!? LOL.
So, yeah thats about it for now. Just takin it easy like the Eagles say. Actually watching Fletch right now on VH1HD. Old Chevy Chase moofies rock. Yeah i said moofies….lol bite me! Well, thats about it for now. I will blog again very soon. Give me a week or so to do something interesting. =)
So I leave you with a hot pic of rockstar porn….lol
Many know that for years I have worked for bands. Few weeks ago I made my last trip ever. We went to Rio for Rock in Rio 2011. It was awesome. Had shows on 23rd and 25th. Met Katy Perry on 23rd. She is sooooo cool.
So now I really don’t what else I will be doing. I guess enjoying life and shit. Skydiving, traveling and what not. A friend of mine is getting married next August in Pittsburgh so ill probably head up there for the social event of the season…..NOT lol.
I spend my time these days relaxing and listening to SirusXM radio. Yeah Playboy and Spice radio lol. Its just great not to mention funny some of the stuff they talk about. One can only take so much of nothing before it gets boring so im sure I will find something else to do that will keep me busy.
For now, I am going to enjoy the upcoming holidays and the cooler weather. Im feeling back in my element now. Its getting cooler and NHL season has finally begun. Yes GO LA Kings! lol. and as always I cant wait til Xmas Eve when they will show my fav holiday movie all day…..yep A Christmas Story with Ralphie! lol.
The most shocking thing I heard lately was the death of Apple giant Steve Jobs. Didn’t see that coming. Of course though Apple will not suffer from this loss. True the market is shitty right now. Believe me, my Forex trading isn’t very profitable lately either! lol. A new product out for them in a week will bring much revenue. In fact many tech companies will be profiting from the holiday sales very soon. Still though, shocking on the death of Steve Jobs. Even though Bill Gates is no longer in charge at Microsoft and now Steve gone, the world of computer technology won’t be the same.
So for now I say peace out. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last month or so. I will be back with more in the coming week! ooooooh I just saw a yummy lasagna on the tv….shit im hungry now. lol. Ok I bid you all well for now until next time!
First off many know I am not an Apple fan by any means. Therefore I really can’t say anything about Steve Jobs that will fascinate you. With his death days ago I had to stop all the teasing because it just wasn’t right to do. I still won’t be an Apple fan but I will give my sypathy to his family on his death.
I guess thats why he decided to step down as CEO in order to enjoy what was left of his life. Makes me wonder why a man with all the money couldn’t get treatment for his situation. Then again I guess it was at a point where it was untreatable. I dont know. Im sure others do. Like i say though, I didn’t follow the life of him.
He did create a kick ass Apple IIe computer which I remember creating stupid loop programs and shit back in elementary school. lol. Thats about all I can say. Out of respect for his family and his followers I simply wanted to post this to pay respects to the innovator he was and will continue to be. I can’t see myself paying that much for a laptop but then again I am a PC guy so those that like MACs im sure will continue to enjoy his products. For those that do, thats the biggest tribute to the man they could do.
It is true that many of his ideas were incorporated in the computers we use today. I guess I grew to like computers because of that Apple IIe tan colored big ass computer LOL.
So as I end this, thanx Steve Jobs.
On a humorous note: look at those old pics of Steve when he had long hair, beard and glasses……I swear he resembles Ben Javhari from the Short Circuit movies (played by Fisher Stevens) lol
So I was checking out some emails and I got this link on my Windows 7 Newsletter. It’s a brief intro into what can be expected from Microsoft Windows 8. So if your an APPLE WHORE you might as well stop reading this because this is of NO interest to you! lol
First off let me give you the link to the page. The video is posted just below the first part of the article.
I’m not going to tell you much about it that way if your interested in Windows 8 just watch the damn video. It is about 19 minutes long. I can’t wait for beta testing. i will definitely be testing this fucker out! Basically if you have seen Windows Phone 7 then this is quite similar and I happen to like Windows Phone 7 GUI.
Enjoy and Apple Lovers if your still reading this check out this awesome look into Steve Jobs new Apple release. Link below….
