I’m an artist by talent and a designer by trade, and I spend too much time doing web design and development by day, so by the time I find a moment to myself, the last thing I want is to be represented by a loud, complex, in your face design. Black and white and red are universal, timeless, striking, and simple.
Many of my webdev peers will surely have a hissy-fit over this item, but I develop everything on one of several laptops running Windows Vista. No, it’s not because I haven’t experienced the utter brilliance of Mac products. I use shiny new Macs every day at my college. They run slow, they crash, they have problems, just like any other PC. Oops, did I just call a Mac a PC? Sure, because that’s what they are. PCs.
So, what does this terrible asshole that hates Apple use for coding? Even PHP/SQL stuff? Usually Notepad2, or Aptana Studio for a large project. What do I shoot photos with ? A Samsung Digimax S700 that I got on Black Friday a few years back. Anything else? Well, I use pen and paper an awful lot for a nerd born in the Eighties.
