The Steve Jobs book makes this thing sound like it was made by the hand of God. Look at it, lol!

Apple's are also getting more malware/viruses. I don't think there's really any cogent reasons to own a mac anymore. Unless you're a graphic artist or something. And I said "graphic artist" not some random untalented girl taking a close-up picture of a flower and editing it into sepia.

Apple isn't alone in the lawsuit, Simon & Schuster, Hachette Book Group, Penguin Group, Mcmillan and HarperCollins are also on the block.

The whole lawsuit is about a price raise of 2$. They won't have to pay anything back, just stop gouging the prices of their ebooks.

As far as Apple making their parts in-house...not any more. They use the same I-series processors, RAM, and HDDs as any PC, they just toss an A on the front instead of an I and multiply the price by 3.

Back in school the computer lab had a bunch of apple IIEs. Most of them were monochrome except two which had 4 colours!

Needless to say if you were quick enough to get one of them you were the envy of the class. I achieved this feat on only one occasion but I'll remember it forever...

I see we finally agree on something.

and 36 years later they have turned into under performing overly expensive POS machines that cost as much as a used car.

Apple rips off it's customers just like Jobs ripped off Woz...not much has changed.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that's never wanted any Apple product, but sometimes it feels that way.

Steve Jobs was a liar and a hypocrite. A con man to the core.

And he started it all by conning the HELL out of Woz.

And it doesn't surprise me at all that Apple would eventually end up in a price-fixing scandal.

"I'd like to see them pay out a few billion."
Fancy, reminds me of something Moss says at the end of this clip.

Not a monopoly, but antitrust over price fixing with a group of publishers: http://lat.ms/HC8Fi1 (LA Times article)

Apple does not have a monopoly on ebooks.
I get ebooks from several sources online.
Most recently, the 7 Harry Potter books that just became available in ebook and are not availabe at Apples website.

Happy Birthday Apple, now call your lawyers, you're being sued by the DOJ for being part of an e-book monopoly.

Anyone who can build a working computer out of nothing but 74xx series TTL logic chips is a gawd in my book.

Link: Happy 36th Birthday, Apple 1 Computer [Pic] [Rate Link] - It was 36 years ago today that the Apple I Computer was created, designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak. Enjoy, nerds.
