Soon, I am still coming-up with some ideas. I do have mac t-shirts on the site, I dunno if you looked @ those

Geek-Gear.com

Just click MAC GEAR @ the top.

If you have some ideas, please pass them on!

P.s. The GOT BOT stuff is in the Misc Section now

How much of this stuff do you actually sell?

Here’s my idea:

I get all the girls with my Mac.

Would you like some Aqua?

Having fun with your Fisher Price interface?

My other computer isn’t a PC. It’s a Mac.

Mac is very non-PC

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

So true! so true!
I think you may be in the clear for legality Matt.

A: You’re not using the actual word “Shack”
B: to to my knowledge Radio Crap does not own the copywrite on that particular font. (Check to make sure though)
C: I can’t imagine that they’d take you to court for repeating what is generally accepted as common knowlwdge.

I’d ask a patent or copywirte expert anyway. There might be a place on the web that could help you.

By the way, I know several people that would be interested in getting a shirt like that.

not seven; eight me

Hmm I still don’t get this whole pc versus mac arguement. Ive installed a printer a scanner a modem and yet the computer never blew up in my face. The only thing that ever went wrong with it was that its motherboard broke after almost 5 years of use.

You cant patent (or copyright) the usage of a typeface (aka font), only the original font(ie if you own the font, and use it for something, the font maker has no claim on what you made). that said, Radioshack most certainly has a trademark on their logo. If it is to similiar to their logo, they can sue you for diluting their trademark (which they are legally required to do if they want to keep their trademark). I’d wager your creation there would be considered parody, and be protected under copyright. I do not know how fair use applies to trademark.

Parody is a beautiful thing.

A Mac and a x86 computer are essentially the same thing. Different types/kinds/brands of processors, RAM, and other components inside, but it all accomplishes the same task, crunching numbers, by method of relaying electrical signals to different parts of the computer. To say that an PC doesn’t work is plain ignorance and stupidity. The operating systems in which the user can interact with the computers are different. But there are many operating systems can be used. A “OS X vs Windows” argument may be valid, providing good points are brought up with evidence. However, there are many operating systems available for use on the PC, such as Windows, BeOS, 166 Distributions of Linux, and Unix. To say that OSX is better than 150+ operating systems is plain stupidity, because you probabaly have not tried them all.

Creating an operating system for the PC is not an easy task. There are many different components you can put in a PC, made by many different manufacturers. It is not an easy thing to get an operating system to work with the millions of different computer configurations available. Standardized parts do make it somewhat easier to make things work, but still problems arise. Some configurations will work perfectly with many operating systems, while some will just not work at all.

With a Mac, there is only 1 configuration: anything put together by Apple/Motorola. You have no alternative. Note that you will also pay through the nose for these components, since they have a virtual monopoly on the Mac platform. However, they can’t set their prices extremely high because they don’t have a monopoly in the computer market.

To say that a mac is better than a computer is just like saying that socialism is better than capitalism. Sure, socialism works, and everyone is happy because they have what they need, but there’s only one way to do it. With capitalism everyone can do their own thing, and some people do it better than others. Some people are just plain miserable. There’s tons of ways to potentially succeed, but not all work.

Win2k works just fine, until (l)users gimp it out.

That said.
