I'm having to rethink the whole Mac vs PC thing. Well, actually, no I'm not. The flexibility of the PC's trumps the fact that the one game I'd really like to play is available only for Macs.
On a related note, I had a friend try to persuade me to invest in a mutual fund that was putting money into Zimbabwe recently. Investing in developing countries can be a good way to generate a nice return on investment. Putting money into a country with negative GDP growth is exactly the same as burning it or giving it to winos hanging around outside liquor stores.
