Where great old Macs live again!

Conversational German for the Mac User: II

Das Macbook Air sieht magersüchtig aus, deswegen würde ich es nicht kaufen. Ich mag meine Laptops wie meine Fräulein, dick mit großen Behaglichkeitskurven.
The Macbook Air looks like it is starving and that is why I’m not buying one. I like my laptops like my women, thick with huge comfy curves.

Umsatteln zu einem Macintosh? Und wo hast du diese Schnapsidee gekriegt?
Switching to a Macintosh? Where did you get that crazy idea?

Die Sage ist, dass Windows 7 (sieben) in 2 (zwei) Jahre kommt, weil Windows Vista so beschissen ist. Ich würde 100 (einhundert) Euro gegen die Möglichkeit wagen.
The rumor ist hat Windows 7 is coming 2 years, because Windows is so s****. I would wager 100 Euro against the possibility.

Herr Jobs ist nicht nur ein Vorstandvorsitzer einer populären Gesellschaft, aber auch einen Dieb, weil er mein Herz gestohlen hat.
Mr. Jobs is not only a CEO of a popular company, but also a thief, because he stole my heart.

Das RetroMacCast hört wie zwei Affen mit Mikrofonen hatten einmal zusammengekommen. Ich frage ob Redefreiheit für Amerikaner ein gutes Ding ist aus.
The RetroMacCast sounds like two monkeys with microphones got together. I question whether freedom of speech is a good thing for Americans.

Here's what Babel Fish did with this:

The Macbook air looks lean addicted, therefore I would not buy it. I like my laptops like my Ms, thickly with large comfort curves. The Macbook air looks like it is starving and that is why I'm emergency buying one. I like my laptops like my women, thick with huge comfy curves. Change to a Macintosh? And where did you gekriegt this liquor idea? Switching ton of A Macintosh? Where did you GET that crazy idea? The legend is the fact that Windows 7 (sieves) comes into 2 (two) years, because Windows Vista beschissen in such a way are. I would dare 100 (one hundred) euro against the possibility. The rumor is has Windows 7 is coming 2 years, because Windows is s ****. I would more wager 100 euro against in such a way the possibility. Mr. Jobs is not only an executive committee chairman of a popular society, in addition, a thief, because he stole my heart. Mr. job is emergency only A CEO OF A popular company, but thus A thief, because he stole my heart. The RetroMacCast hears like two apes with microphones had once met. I ask whether free speech for American a good thing am out. The RetroMacCast sound like two monkeys with microphones got more together. I question more whether freedom OF speech is A good thing for Americans.

Wow. Babel-Fish messed up the translation magnificently. This is why it is easy for instructors to spot when a student is using it. It messes translations up miserably from both ways.

Ok, so translate it for a couple of monkeys like us.
