  1. Dude, of course you can use 6 apples for fun you are HiSo Nah, I totally understand where you are coming from, it was rather a recommondation for someone else but me! I'd never buy a PC again formyself except for a media center solution where they simply rock and run stable. I also have to admit that Windows Vista looks very stunning! I needed PCs for developing websites, I needed to know how they look like on all kind of browsers and also some developing tools didn't run on the mac. I think it is a matter of taste if the perfomrance isn't required! That windows holds 90% of the market, which is according to the stats I had on my websites an understatement (96% windows users) has ore to do with brilliant marketing and licensing then quality! Since PCs are way cheaper as an office computer the Mac will never break into this market, and if you compare the usage of PCs in the professional advertising companies you will most likely find one on the book keepers desk and one for the secretary!
  2. To be fair, my Xb Media Center edition has never crahsed. What bugs me about windows is that if you dont put some effort into maintaining the system the boot sequence will be longer and longer after the login. With apple you dont have that shit and since I used it for profesionaly phot and video editing a PC is entriely out of question. If I had used the last year a PC I wouldn't have finished my work untill today which was done in Sepetember last year with the Mac! If you are a gamer or only a net surfer you should spend the money on thai hookers instead of a Mac, it is not worth it. If you have to do some serious work which requires performance your time should be worth more than the higher price that you have to pay!
  3. Can't remember which names where giving resistance to a new product that they dont know I simply agree with Zombie in all points One thing about the silly iPod quality reviews! 1) The battery Problem was with G3 now it is G6 2) The sound quality via analoge ouptut is measurable worse not hearbale for the human ear, except you have and absolute high end system with 40,000 USD speakers. A person like that doesnt play mp3 files, that is for sure The new receivers do all support the iPod dock signal and decode the mp3 files ON THE FLY on the receiever, that means the file is digital without a loss, just binaries. No other mp3 player can do that and therefore the iPod will deliver the best sound possible! period! 3) the reviewer who claimed that 2 iPods died on him must be and Escimo living in the ice or a total fucking moron. First of all, pugging your ipod to speakers doesnt change the behavior of the machine, the one who claims that has simply not clue how the analogue output of the machine works. When ge ot 2 dvices dying on him in just 3 weeks he is obviously doing something wrong. I have 4 iPods an nothing to complain about! The iPod is the pioneer and everyone else tries to get a share of the market. There are decent players but not a single one has the style and the image of the iPod and depending on the heaphones you are using they have all the same quality anyways! There are always people who are against mainstream products, the iPod is one of the few products who went to the top for a reason. It is pricey and that is what pisses the most people off, in terms of funcitonality and quality the iPod is just as good as any other device and in many ways better! Nothing to discuss about PC and Mac one who claims a PC is better must be delivered to a mental hospital immediately! The iPhone combines so many features which are not new except of one, but they have never been combined in one device! Downloading music with my iTunes account is amazing, having finally a decent webrowser makes it possible to pos on this board with my phone etc... Read the specs frist and condemn it later, in 3 year everyone has one anyways or a copy from his favorite brand!
  4. That is quite an understatement, I dont think one year is enough, one thing is fore sure, the entire industry will copy it's features. Basically this thing is an Ipod a cell phone a black berry and a palm all in one solution. It comes in a decent small size, not like these huge devices that Nokia produces and people actually buy it when they can get smarter features in smaller size for lower costs! However it is Marketing and that's why these furniture resembling Nokia phones sell well! That is why the iPhone will take a giant part of the market, especially Apple users will love it, one who was about to buy a new iPod will love that thing, one who wants a GPS will love it etc... the features are unbeatable and whoever is trying to compare an existing phone with it is plugging the brand he prefers, there is nothing like that and since it is based on osx there will be add on software like mad. The widescreen ipod video feature is a winner and the battery lasts 18 hours in ipod mode, 24 hours in gps mode and 39 hours in actual phone calls! Everyone who uses a cell phone knows how fast these batteries die, this one does not and that is the biggest plus the phone has. I haven't even started talking about the design and the hip image that thing has (and I wont) It will rule!
