Yeah, but we're not Microsoft. Way-to-go Steve Jobs, your logic is unarguably sad.

Yea. Apple and Zune sucks with their horrible software.

Just get a third-brand or something. Sooo much better. And hey, I can use them as a flash-drive.

I will never get an apple. I'm using a dell desktop that was my older sister's and its roughly 7 years old maybe more and it works just fine. :) even if I ever get an mp3 player its going to be the sony walkman not an ipod :P

"okay steve, what's our new product?"
"alright get this.. we're going to take the ipod touch... make it bigger... and change the 'o' to an 'a'!"
"that's it? any improvements?"
"yeah give it a new processor, nothing to fancy though! and uhhhh that's about it."
"should we give our customers flash support? or the ability to download programs that aren't from the appstore?"
"hell no! oh and let's really play this up, let's say this is basically a gift from god and it will revolutionize the world!"
"but that's lying! we're taking advantage of our customer's ignorance!"
";D"

I love how so many apple users gloat with, "Well, MY computer won't die after three years, nyeah!"
Well, you pompous douche, believe that, if you must, but I am currently typing on an almost nine-year-old Dell desktop that works quite fine, thank you.

Ahh, the peaceful small land of Linux users and their extensive tunnel network under all of Mac and PC land.

"At least Apple computers don't die every three years forcing you to continually buy a new one."

I've got a PC built twelve years ago running just fine. When companies have to compete, the result is a product with a low price and long life.

An Apple computer is basically $100 more for a sticker of a fruit and a guarantee that a lack of competition results in parts manufactured by the lowest bidder.

Not the first time I've deleted a comment of yours for bypassing the language filter. Perhaps I should've temp banned you before now so you got the message, but I didn't so whatever. It's there for a reason. Keep it up and you'll be banned. Play nice.

It ends up working that way anyways, when companies constantly upgrade their poo.

"imaguitargod" ive had my laptop for over 2 maybe 3 years now and it still works the same as it did back then, and im free to download free poo and then share it with my mates, the laptop itself cost me about £300 and ive probably saved over a grands worth of stuff that apple would have charged me for

It's more than "if you don't like it, don't buy it". It's personal freedoms. People need to be made aware when your rights are taken away from you by a company. Many are ignorant of what apple does.

HP slate does what Apple's Ipad dose, but better specs wise, also there going to be a lot of pads/slates coming out this year. Apple just happens to be the first big name to market, but not the first to bring their product to market. Apple won't have a multi-year lead on this thing, like it did with the ipod.

I still like pen and paper. I can more easily memorize things things while those who constantly mark things on their electronic devices have to "look it up" to verify it's right. While they sometimes have to wait or download, I remember the movement of my hand and what I wrote, I find my method of recalling info faster. If I need to, I pull out that pre-historic piece of paper. Typing with a stylus doesn't help me remember what I wrote.

People don't need gadgets to become "better organized." Organization is learning responsibility and running your own affairs- not your iPhone doing it FOR you. Using a tool to do all that for you (as I have seen some people do), you're just a monkey pushing a button without thinking.

Basically what I was saying earlier, is that Apple's big problem is going to be convincing people it is:

1) Not a small laptop.
2) Not a large iphone.

Which to be fair, it isn't.

Pui:

You miss the point.

1) The old Tablet PCs came out at not $400, but $2000.
2) The one you linked is triple the weight. Is larger than the "cumbersome" iPad.
3) It takes up MORE space when you can use the keyboard.
4) Weight.
5) The touchscreen resolution is worse. I'd bet an arm its less responsive.
6) The weight.

Your link will never replace taking a book or paper with you on a plane. That is what the ipad is going for.

You link is every possible example of what the ipad is trying to do, and in every way seems to be succeeding, NOT in replacing computers, but by coming up with a new gadget, that takes the place of old media, and does it better.

You might as well put in a link to your car. I'm sure it has many cool features that the iPad lacks, however doing so is just showing you haven't really seen the purpose of the thing in the first place.

It's not the new laptop. It's the new book.

I just thought he probably made that on a mac.

But i do think apple is overhyped not that it doesent work just doesent do things particuarly better then the competition either. This is from all my non tech savvy mates who own apple products simply because its apple.

I have no problem creative media people who need mac's etc having them but for your average user buy a laptop be a thousand pound cheaper just because you dont get a apple logo on the back. Same said for alienware comps your spending more for a logo....

Wow, someone has time on their hands, don't they?

@obhwfgirl--OH BOY do I agree with you. I adore my iPhone. Ive had it since Christmas and already it helps run my life. I'm usually very disorganized and there seems to be an app for everything I need help with. No problems with anything, so far. This guy can shove his sign up/down somewhere... :P

Say what you will about Apple computers (I'm not a fan), but their small electronics are outstanding. You can say the iPod (and iPhone) have sold well due to great marketing, but if it was a crappy product, the iPod wouldn't have outsold the competition for nearly 5 years.

I've tried at least 3 different smartphones as a way of keeping myself organized. They were all too difficult to navigate and input info (like tasks and events). I also tried paper planners but nothing ever stuck. I have an iPod touch now and it's like a breath of fresh air -- I'm finally able to keep track of my life. I don't have to adapt to the interface; it adapts to me. Apple is the only product on the market that does that and does it *well*.

wow this is not true. If you jailbreak your apple ipod, you can get free software, download app's from the web, and you can share stuff if you know how. You can disable apple kill switch. So his sign is not valid :)
