Apple vs Ubuntu
Apple’s products are simply beautiful. Mac mini, iPod Nano, MacBook or iPhone: anything they do, they do it with style.
Except, they don’t always work, apparently. During the weekend’s skiing/snowboarding trip, one of us wanted to transfer some important photos (showing just-about-to-fall snowboarders) from her iPhone (gorgeous pink cover) to her MacBook (gorgeous flat chassis). No way.
So we connected the iPhone to my Ubuntu-driven notebook, the “Apple Inc. iPhone” icon promptly appeared on the desktop, and in a few minutes time the compromising pictures were transferred to the MacBook travelling on board of a carefree pendrive.
