    Why is everyone always out to get Apple/Jobs?
    He`s a businessman, and he`s very successful.
    People always jump down his throat but in the end, no-one is forcing you to buy their products.

    If you don`t like Apple/Jobs, shut the hell up and buy a damn Zune, and quit whining about a marketing strategy.

    Apple has derailed as a company and gone into the paranoid deep end...not to mention they still think that they own the device after you buy it from them.

    the fact of the matter is that they do not build a single product that does not have an equal or often better counterpart on the market. the Zune is as good as the ipod but better in a sense because you can synch it to ANY computer w/o losing all your music, the iPad is easily outdone by the HP Slate, which does have all the missing feaures the Ipad doesn`t...the Iphone is greatly outdone by ever mid range andriod phones and is so easily outdone by the top end andriods like the Incredible, Droid and Nexus it is silly to even compare them.

    Macs...don`t get me started there, non-upgradeable, slow, media only machines. I built my pwn PC for just under 1,200 that has 16gb of RAM, two video cards, 2 Tb drive and a host of other great feaures that no mac could come close to touching in price or performance...apple = s

    People can`t seem to get enough of Apple bashing which indicates that they`re doing something right. I love my MacBook and iPhone but Apple can eat a bag of dkics anyway for the bullpoo they pull. I`d switch back to PCs if Windows didn`t lick donkey ass, they didn`t come loaded with 50 piece of siht software demos and didn`t require my constant attention shutting down popups.

    I so agree. I once was on a bus ride between Montreal and Toronto and this girl told me I was a sheep for having a PC. I looked around and there was like 10 other people on the exact same Mac she had lol.

    @drips,
    Really? I`m pretty sure you`re one of those people that download the anti-virus because they say a banner ad saying the have 32 new viruses! I have never had a problem with windows or mac OS, but prefer windows because of the general population of programs on it. The only reason people apple bash is because of the fanboys, and the retarded price of their slow computers.

    Who the hell would bother making a virus for something that makes up less than 15% of computers worldwide?

    I`ve argued the same thing, gorgack. If there are 100 cars on the road, and 85 of them are Fords, and 15 are Chryslers, which car will be stolen most frequently?
    People often tout how secure it is...it`s based off Unix. I worked as a Unix admin for a number of years, as well as a Windows admin. Microsoft would release 5-15 security patches monthly to correct security flaws. RedHat would release 5-15 per day.
    So...which is more secure? The operating system with an average of 120 flaws per year, or the operating system with an average of 3600 flaws per year?
    And...Apple wouldn`t even bother patching those 3600 flaws. No, every 6 months, they`d release the revolutionary new version (with those flaws fixed) and re-sell it for $300...where Microsoft would provide service packs for free. Oh, and by the by...if you want any kind of support, you NEED to upgrade to the next operating system. Screw Microsoft with their support of operating systems for 5 years after the newest

    I own a Mac simply because it was required by the teaching program at my school. I can see the merits (and shortcomings) of both Macs and PCs. If price were an issue, I would go with a PC. Otherwise, I would probably opt for a Mac, simply because it is more user-friendly and less likely to contract a virus (I`m not saying Macs are impervious to viruses, but as Gorgack2000 pointed out, "who the hell would bother making a virus for something that makes up less than 15% of computers worldwide?")

    I honestly hope that Mac gets to be a `bigger` company, or at least gets more owners. That way hackers will start making viruses for them. Steve Jobs won`t know what to do when Apple headquarters gets slammed with virus after virus (because we all know all crApple products are tied tightly to Steve Jobs`s brain).

    the cool thing is you can get rid of the added crap you dont want on a pc in under a day. apple on the other hand you need that crap cause steve KNOWS that you will use it eventually and if you dont you better have a GOOD reason.
    turn on you mac and try to use anything other that i-tunes to listen to music. better yet try to delete i-tunes, listen for your phone. its steve`s "police", better try not to resist.

    I f*cking HATE Macs, and most other Apple products.

    They look pretty, they`re OK for editing video, photos, music, etc., but that`s about ALL they`re good for. Oh, and I suppose they`re pretty good for the lazy bastard that doesn`t want to put any actual work into his computer, like READING THROUGH ALL THE POPUPS BEFORE CLICKING DOWNLOAD TO MAKE SURE IT`S SOMETHING YOU ACTUALLY WANT. You know those rapid reading-eye movements put Mac users to sleep like little Hutts. They`d never stay awake on a PC, since they`re also too lazy to get a pop-up blocker...

    And don`t even get me started on the prices of all their BS.

    People can`t seem to get enough of Apple bashing which indicates that they`re doing something right.

    No, it means people are finally starting to wake up and realize that someone needs to keep the madness quelled before everyone becomes an Apple fanboy/girl.

    loaded with 50 piece of siht software demos and didn`t require my constant attention shutting down popups.

    Is that so? Well then, I suppose I must have downloaded Safari in my sleep a few years back when I actually thought iTunes was worth it.

    Because I downloaded an update for iTunes, and all of a sudden Safari was my primary web browser.

    Please explain, if Mac products don`t come with all sorts of worthless programs and crap I don`t want, then how did Safari even get on my computer in the first place? Now to mention a little something called "Apple Program Updater" when iTunes is perfectly capable of updating itself? Instead of updating iTunes, it popped up at least twice a day telling me I should download the latest version of THIS or THAT Apple software.

    That was when I deleted any and all Apple related programs on my computer, and haven`t touched them since. And started reading through ALL installation/download menues related to what I wanted to install.

    Besides all the Mac hating, Google`s better anyway. Once Google really starts moving at full steam, I`m pretty sure it`ll leave both of the current tech regimes in it`s dust.

    It`s ingenius really. They release something with a missing feature, and everyone still buys it. Then they release the same thing with that feature a year later, only 75% higher in cost... and everyone buys the new one.

    They`re almost doubling their profit! Ingenius masterminds!

    About the only problem that I have with Apple`s iProducts are that, when they say it`s "revolutionary", it`s still lacking stuff that other products already have. Then, when they catch up...yeah, I think the graphic clearly illustrates it.

    On a positive note, the stuff`s pretty easy to use and not prone to viruses. Those are really the only things I like about anything Apple. Not really a whole lotta motivation on my end.

    In a related note, putting a video camera on an iPod nano...for what exactly?
