In a really lame episode, Mac OS X attained sentience and all the Apple executives learned a valuable lesson about the human experience.
Apple follower Joe Hutchison of Cleveland, Ohio, complained “That was so lame.”
“I hate Avie episodes,” Hutchison said, referring to the fact that most of the episode revolved around Chief Technology Officer Avie Tevanian.
“It was just so predictable. Avie saying ‘I sense feelings, Steve!’ is just a laugh line. He says that in every Avie episode.”
Other Apple followers agreed.
Chuck Glidden of San Diego, California said “You could just see the whole plot coming up Main Street. Electrical short in the OS X development group leads to weird happenings which they can’t understand at first and then it turns out – ooh, surprise, surprise – OS X is sentient!
“I’ve seen this one.
“And, finally, there’s the tearful scene at the end where it turns out it’s not permanent and OS X has to go back to being a whole bunch of ones and zeros.
“Sometimes I’m not even sure why I follow this company.”
Completing its lameness was the appearance of Wil Wheaton at the end as a glowing figure welcoming OS X into digital heaven and the ultimate realization that the entire episode was the dream of some kid.
“That is so lame!” Glidden said.
