    Well one thing is for sure. They`ve stayed constant in one way.

    Charging you way more than the hardware is worth. Nothing like a $800-$2000 product using parts that aren`t worth $400.

    I used to have an old Apple ][e which was great fun to write BASIC games on. Today though Apple is no longer an electronics brand, it`s a fashion accessory and all those who think that having an Apple product makes them cool are just idiots. Why spend £150 on an iPod when a £50 MP4 player does exactly the same job but with MP3s and WMA files? Why spend £300 on an iPhone when there are countless other brands that do better jobs and aren`t locked up solid?

    Ok, this is annoying as hell for several reasons:

    #1. Apple sucks for everything other than iPods
    #2. They show old thing, newer thing, older thing... Is there a bloody order?
    #3. That music bored me.
    #4. EVERY APPLE PRODUCT LOOKS ALIKE.
    #5. I still don`t know what those keyboards attatched to a screenless box are... Whatever it is, it should have never been created.

    And for all the apple haters out there who say that apple sell overpriced product with hardware that are worth only half the price or that you could get some equivalent for less, I got only one thing to say to you.

    Apple = Quality.

    And that`s the only true variable that matters. My name is Groogle and i`m a rocket scientist.

    some people just cant see deeper than the UI. Learn about computers, hardware, using them for more than photoshop and you`l soon realize, silver spraypaint is no alternative to well built hardware, no matter what OS you run.

    Seriously necros... all those links you posted point to stupid debate that dont really disturb me.

    They lied about their 3G Iphone loading the interweb half a second faster then real life. Big whoop.

    I dont really care about the second link because it was in 2003 ( Why dont you dig up crap from the time Steve Jobs and Bill Gates worked togheter while you`re at it. )

    And the third link is about how talented the people who made the article are with a program they run on a mac and a pc... I didn`t read all of it because of the amount of facepalm I was getting from my right hand.

    @Groogle.

    Oh, and that was a very poor attempt on your part to counter the links Necros provided. It seems you`ve got to get some medication in you, because only an ADHD-riddled gnat would be unable to pay attention long enough to read those articles, and they provide some interesting information...

    ...of course, that information goes contrary to your dogma, doesn`t it?

    1: If Microsoft pulled that kind of advertising falsehood, you wouldn`t be saying "big whoop". I`d put money on that.

    2: Ditto for this one; you`d be screaming bloody murder if any other company but precious Apple appeared to have tried to manipulate performance results.

    3: Something shiny obviously distracted you if you couldn`t read through these three short pages. But I`ll summarise for you; they set up a test between two machines, with all the hardware specs explained, and ran the same processes on each to see which was fastest. Their results; Mac was slower. All about their talent? Why did you f

    when I see stuff like this, I think what computers will be like in 30 more years.

    If we went from computers the size of small TVs, to laptops that can fit inside a backpack in such a short amount of time, then what will happen in the next couple of years?

    My opinion? We have wrist computer hologram things. That would be hot...

    I`m impressed that they actually knew to include the Pippin - most people don`t realize that one ever existed.

    They missed a few prototypes, but i guess that`s normal...

    Though I think they should have at least included some of the NeXT equipment/OS`s... The current state and reach of Apple is due largely to the NeXT technology like the Cube (where the original Mac Cube came from) and the NeXTStep OS - OS X`s predecessor.

    Side note - anyone ever set a NeXTCube on fire? Solid magnesium burns ever so magnificently....
