Fuck Apple’s Magic Trackpad and Fanboys at TechCrunch Who Say the Mouse is Dead

What the fuck is the point of this stupid piece of shit?

You know what’s a pain in the ass about laptops? Fucking touchpads.  You need to get used to them because each one is different and they generally suck. They’re only there for convenience and they’re better than that stupid nipple trackpoint mouse (SFW) that IBM used to use back in the day. In four years, trackpads fucking wear out.

Then you get Apple which releases this “stylish” stupid piece of shit. Please explain to me why anyone with a desktop would want to put a freakin touchpad on it? And wireless to eat through expensive batteries? Who would also waste $69 on something so useless? You’ll get carpal tunnel using that pitched piece of crap.

On Thursday, my news feeds from the tech sites I read daily all blew up with the announcement of this fucking contraption. Of the 4 tech blogs I subscribe to on my RSS there had to be at least 12 bloggers write 20 posts about it. It almost made me rage. I was trying to read Barstool’s guess that ass, check out the smokeshow of the day and smut news in general but all I saw was this stupid thing.

This touchpad isn’t even revolutionary since it’s been done before. Apple just took the concept and put multitouch and bluetooth in it and released it knowing stupid brainwashed morons will buy it.

Then you get this jerkoff Apple fanboy MG Siegler over at TechCrunch who writes an article that the mouse is dead because of this revolutionary new product, and how kids growing up only use trackpads so the mouse will die. Next, people call him an asshole and Mr. Flip Flop took it all back was like “Yeah, it’s going to be a slow process, but the mouse will still die. It’s just a mouse – stop complaining. Oh, and it’s still amazing.” What an asshole.

NEWS FLASH MG Shithead: How do you play games on a touchpad? How do you edit audio with precision? Video? You can’t.  The mouse is far from dead. You have these $80 laser precision 6000DPI mice that are way beyond my need or comprehension and you want everyone to switch to a half assed touchpad? What are we going backwards? Touchpads are good for laptops and touchscreens are the future for mobile platforms. But not desktops. Period.

Apple never fails to make me rage.

    This is a worthless piece of shit. How are you supposed to get headshots with this thing? I struggled playing modern warfare in my financial management and MG300 classes with my mbp’s touchpad, so what’s the point in this? However, of all touchpads I’ve used, my mbp’s has been my favorite of all time. I’ve worked on countless laptops, and nothing beats the overall smoothness of that touchpad. That’s the thing though…they’re only for laptops…nothing else.

    I love my apple stuff, but I can’t stand it when the uninformed think EVERYTHING apple makes is a godsend. Jesus…you don’t know how badly I wanted to slap a friend of my parents with my droid in hand because he thought the iphone OS was king and that android didn’t allow multitasking…
