I Love the Apple TOS
As we all know as I've mentioned it before I love the Apple TOS which when I accidentally run into it never fails to make me laugh. Specifically this part:
" THE APPLE SOFTWARE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION OR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS, LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES OR OTHER EQUIPMENT IN WHICH THE FAILURE OF THE APPLE SOFTWARE COULD LEAD TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE. "
"Hey, I can run the LHC on my iPhone! Sweet!"
"Dude - totally rips yer warranty, man."
I think someone is running the US government on an Apple II, and while that isn't technically against the TOS it has led to a lot of personal injury. Bush's animatronics are run by a carny worker with an iMac, I think.

I hope you're not saying that the Apple doesn't fall far from the Bush. How dare you besmurch the name of the only computer whose daily use keeps the medical personnel at bay. You'll not find any such machine in the incumbent's bin. Any such search would prove most decidedly fruitless. No cider for the Decider!
I'm sure that, occasionally, the lure of that forbidden fruit has been most powerful. And I wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't, indeed, taken a bite at some point in the past. (Perhaps that Apple II you mentioned or even (shudder) a III.) In any crate, though he may have once tasted its' sweetness, he seems to have soured on it now.
