One more insult added to the injury of buying into the Apple myth as we were trying to follow the mighty Daniel Drezner into the great unknown this afternoon. Sensing our lingering vanity after all these years, he taunted his readers, drawing us down the rabbit hole of something called MyHeritage.com, "which claims to have a face recognition program that lets you upload a photo and tells you which celebrities you look like." Clicking on the link, we were greeted by a message familiar to former Windows users used to going wherever we may and hearing/seeing whatever we like now caught in the quagmire of the Apple Terror:
Apologies to Safari browser [Apple's default browser] users! We are in the process of adding support for Safari in this site. In the meantime, please use Firefox for Mac if possible.
Gak. Being used to this kind of cyberabuse, however, we went to our Applications file on the C Drive and called up Firefox. Soon we were in business, downloading the image we had used for our Pajamas Media Profile. And guess what? The image of our own mug most closely resembles that of Mussorgsky. Does it get any better? Actually, yes . . . Theo Van Gogh comes in at a close third, while Henry David Thoreau is in the runnning, and the Leader of the Free World himself, George W. Bush, is right up there. Are we pretty?
