Isn`t it safe to say the war between Apple and PC is over? It seems to me that less and less people have brand loyalty anymore. I know people that have iPhones and use Vista. Mac users who run Office. It seems to be that you ought to choose the product you think is most viable for your situation without bias towards the company that made it.

As usual, well atleast people are starting to learn. Almost no one in the creative field uses them anymore (im talking high end cg/effects/compositing/rendering, not playing with pshop vector brushes. their hardware is ooold, like 4 years old. the UI is driver lacking. hardware programs are impossible to install [flame for example, aswell as physics hardware for dynamics processing] the networking is 3rd party cheap hardware. O and the RAm is generic. The list can go on forever, its one big scam.

I use all platforms and they all have strengths and weakness. As years have progressed they are all becoming the same anyway. Dont be a sheep, branding is brainwashing. Use the tool that best suits your needs at the time. And if you have never used or owned the other computer then your opinions is just flame.

Apple should burn.

My university removed all Apples from the campus computer labs because they were having too many problems with them. They replaced them with HP `donated` models which have worked flawlessly thus far.
My office has done the same. We used to have Macs in some of the offices, everyone was given a chance to trade in their office apple for a PC (and all data would be transfered so long as it was compatible)

Everyone but three people switched that day. The three people who didn`t were on vacation and did so once they returned.

I kid you not.

Apple sucks. Period, and they should be sued for the ads and fined more for this sort of poo. Jobs thinks he`s God. he needs to be brought down to earth and beaten.

I have a macbook pro. While there are definitely alot of angles to this, i think apple hits a very niche market. My job is music production, and i use it heavily for graphic art. Many programs are more geared towards mac users. Additionally, altough they are expensive, they have a great build quality and a great operating system (i was less than satsfied with vista, and truth be told i liked XP, but not quite as much as mac os). It seems to me if a computer is your lively hood there is no problem spending alot of money on a good quality computer (something that is not restricted to apple, to get a very good PC you have to pay money also, you tend to get what you pay for with computers). I love my macbook pro and will take the pepsi challenge with any PC for what im doing. Wouldn`t take it for gaming though.

Gawsh you people fight alot! I`ve witnessed so many Apple Vs. Microsoft flame wars... the way i see it, both companies are equally bad.. i feel like, at first they seemed to actually care about what people want and now there just feeding us garbage! It`s because people are so divided about what OS they use that they can manipulate us into thinking there next creation is absolutely fantastic. Mac users won`t buy a Pc and vice versa! YOUR STUCK PEOPLE!

"keep the customer confused by showing more bars than there is signal"

Why the f*ck show any bars at all?!. Not only is the company lying to you, but so is the product. I was looking for positive proof that Apple was worthless, I`ve found it.

I have an 120G ipod, only because it is pretty cool to have a portable hard drive that can store every bit of music I own, 2 movies at a time, several hours of porn , and still be large enough to back up my laptop to, and the only difference from one of those huge portable hard drives is the being able to play music on its own.

Other than that, I had a macbook for a while, and I have to say, it had some cool aspects to it, but when it`s wifi card broke 2 days after warranty, I took my info off it, and gave it to my 10 year old cousin.

Autographed - you are right, but Apple portrayed the iPhone loading a web-page at a speed which (for the sake of argument lets say) is impossible. Thats different that saying "axe shower gel will make women break into your house and gang-rape you.

Its a much closer call when you show a realistic portrayal of a product which is in fact not possible. Knowing nothing about the iPhone`s capabilities beforehand, I wouldn`t know that it actually was not that fast, or that it`s browsing capabilities were limited....

Hmm, at first I was skeptical that this is what apple was actually arguing (it was the plaintiff`s lawyer who claimed apple was calling customers stupid). Apple was arguing the good ol` reasonable person standard - i.e., what would a normal person of average intelligence think.
Like, when you watch a commercial with a car going around a race track with a loop-de-loop in it, no reasonable person thinks cars can do that.

BUT - they actually are saying this. They are saying that no normal, reasonable person would see an iPhone commercial, in which the iPhone impossibly quickly loads a webpage, and think that the iPhone could load a page that quickly. OR, Apple also claims that no reasonable person would think that when Apple says the iPhone can browse the entire internet, which it can`t, that reasonable person would not think the iphone could browse the ENTIRE internet.

Lastly, Apples are for unintelligent people who get confused with options and choices...

that is the basic response when someone claims false advertisement after an ad says "it will make your teeth whiter than the moon" or something. If it clearly isn`t true, or is an obvious overstatement, then your petition will be stopped dead in its tracks...

I don`t know, when people actually advertise their product to do something, you sorta expect it to do it. Weird, isn`t it?

The only Apple piece of technology that`s worth it (if you`re willing to give in a few extra bucks) is the iPod. The rest is utter dog crap which grossly enriches Jobs and his minions. Seriously, loyal Apple acolytes are tools and snobby retards.

windose stole from apple & unixat&t, took the desktop & throttles it`s vendors to only serve macrosoft.

macapple stole from zerox, took graphics, media & art making everything proprietary & dumb downs the entire user base, so no one can steal from it.

zerox, who cares.

unix is parent to dos & linux & is the backbone of the internet, though too complex for the average lemming

linux is the only free choice & aside of unix, the most powerful, though is reverse engineered (due to throttled vendors) & buggy. if it ever captures the desktop will become like windose.

everything else currently equals spam.

I don`t see the appeal of an Ipod, I have a Samsung mp3 player/USB drive. I can use it like an ordinary USB drive and put songs on it by simply dropping them into the music folder without needing any extra software and it charges as long as its plugged into my computer. Its like a digital swiss army knife

If I want a touch screen I`ll stick to my NintendoDS.
If I want to talk to someone I`ll use my land line, which is cheaper, and more reliable.
If I want the web, I won`t boot up my Nintendo Wii, I`ll boot up my laptop.
Etc, etc, etc.

As being a former Apple owner, I learned early (back in 1986) That they are liars of the 1st magnitude.

Apples are for the hip sheeple that couldn`t possibly understand DOS command line, Let alone tie their shoes.. Thats why most wear Birkenstocks.

Oh man its good to see Steve Jobs with egg on face once again. Granted it won`t tear down Apple just yet, but this may raise a bit of ire.

I still love a show I saw of Jobs once. He admitted he "stole" ideas from existing machines to build his first Apples, basically saying, "Hey, thats business". And then he went on a whining tirade about how Bill Gates stole some components off the him when he was building the Windows OS, likening Gates to a dirty criminal. What a giant douche.

I hope that he slips up, runs Apple straight into the pavement...again, and they kick his ass out into the street...again.
