    They are actually right you know........

    Jobs.. nor Apple... really invented any of this stuff. They were just very successful in marketing.


    I, too, do not own any Apple products.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    That card doesn't fly with me. I have spent enough time with technology to know better. For instance, I enjoyed the iPod because of its sound signature, its OS, and had a great audio out. I still use it hooked up to my Headroom Desktop Headphone Amp----> Sennheiser HD-600's, HD-595's, the 497s, and sometime in the future the AKG-702s.
    Yawn... Im not impressed.....

    That was what you were going for right.. by putting in all those numbers to products....

    Those are the product names (I'd be doing the same with television displays or any other product which might have the misfortune of not being named cleverly), and I was striking back at the notion that Apple users can't be passionate fans of hi-tech like anyone else. I'm not doing it to impress you. I'm clearing up a stereotype.

    A student came up to me and pointed it out when we were in the computer lab today. There's a hyperlink at the bottom of the page forwarding to Apple.com, and text "Steve Jobs" followed by DOB and date of death. They are minimalist. I was expecting some of the kids to be playing on that Mrs. Pacman page of theirs that I guess is still up somehow.

    to OP:

    We need more Americans like Steve Jobs! Though he many may question how much "Apple" products cost, He opened up new markets and gave momentum to great American Ideas!

    I do not hate Apple but I did not like their advertising style a few years back and I do not like the "community" of their users. It really did seem as though they advertised to people who were too dumb to use a PC, meanwhile, their users could not be more smug in general. Brand loyalty is something I find to be silly. Buy what works best, at the best price, that best suits your needs.

    *Edit to add: If Apple does have one thing going for it, I would say it is their ability to innovate and make quality products. Almost everything they sell is rock solid - but you pay for it.

    I used to like apple, then they went to pentium processors. Now there is no reason to buy one. You can litterally run Snow leapord on a windows PC, because it was designed for a pentium processor. Apple is nothing more than a style choice now, and a very expensive one at that. They used to be the rage with artists and grpahics people because of the ease with color spaces, when going from a home PC to a printer, or website. But that is a thing of the 90s, windows PCs have caught right up. Then they were cool because no one wrote viruses for the mac OS systems, but now that they are becoming more similar to windows, it's not going to be a big deal to write a virus for windows, then tweak it slightly for Mac. It's apples to apples, and one apple costs more than the other, because it looks better, even though it's the same inside.
