If you don't open Windows how will the burglars get in?

Obvious he doesn't find windows challenging so has gone for an Apple and is trying to work out how they justify their prices, why they think their system is so much better than any other one and how they have the gall to sue everyone. Now that is a challenge worthy of of his brain

A 17 year old with all the answers. Now that's something you don't see every day.

LMAO!! Especially since I have one of those at home at the moment....

Apple have been in schools a very long time. We had Apple II's at my high school (you figure out how long ago that was :)), and one apple IIc oh the glory of a colour screen. I remember learning logo and basic programming way back when on an apple. They try to hook us when we are young.

Anyway good on this kid for getting of his butt and giving his Ideas a go, even if he fails he'll likely do well in the long run if he keeps that up. Plenty of teenagers think they have all the answers, very few put any practical use to this supposed genius.

He states "But I'm immensely frustrated, I see New Zealand going in entirely the wrong direction."

Understandable, he own a Mac. So who's going in the wrong direction?
