backdating entries?

Does anyone (at all) have any opinions for or against backdating entries? There’s a load of stuff from the past month or two that I’ve been meaning to blog, but I haven’t had time.

Why do Apple owners cling to the delusion that apples are “better machines”, bought from “a different kind of company”? Every company pulls shit like this, but Apple is unique in being able to do it and still have an evangelical following.

E.g. this dude, who is being actively screwed over by Apple, still refers to the Apple Store clerk using the Apple marketing term “Genius”. And I bet he’ll eventually replace his PowerBook with… another PowerBook.
