Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Dave Winer gives me a new, and better reason to never buy an Apple product - apparently, if you send your Mac in for a disk repair, they will refuse to give you the old disk. Further, they can at their discretion give you a refurbished hard drive instead of a new one.

$160 for an 80 GB refurb? That's insane. I've often pointed to Apple's hard line on replacing iPod batteries, and to their obsession with being a closed operating system as reasons for staying away from their products. I'm now convinced that I'd just as soon run Linux on a 486 then own a Mac.
