Whine about your Mac
One of my favorite podcasts, MacBreak Weekly, used to include a segment called Mac whines. This was the part of the podcast where the otherwise extremely pro-Mac cast got to whine about stuff they didn’t like regarding Macs, iPods, iPhones and other Apple products. It’s been a while since the last Mac whine segment was featured in the podcast though, and as a switcher coming up on his third anniversary, I think there’s more to whine about! I absolutely love my Macs, but I’ll be the first to admit that there are things that annoy and sometimes confuse me.
So, as a pet project, I put together MacWhines.com. It’s a very simple voting website where you get to bitch and whine about all things Apple. While creating the website, I took the opportunity to learn a little about OpenID and decided to rely completely on OpenID for the sign in mechanism. Additionally, I added “Sign in with a Google Account” and “Sign in with Yahoo! ID” buttons that redirect you to Google or Yahoo! and allow you to sign in via their federated login systems. Give it a spin and let me know what you think.
PS. There’s not a lot of functionality on the website apart from signing in, voting for whines, submitting your own whines and commenting on existing whines, but that’s kind of the idea. I didn’t want to overshoot the target so to speak.
