My collection of Mac products now includes seven iPods ($1,500), four Mac laptops ($8,000), two Airports ($500), a Time Capsule ($500), two Mac towers ($4,000), a Mac Mini ($600), two iMacs ($4,000) and all three iPhones ($1,500).
Man oh man!! And he's complaining about Apple? (Must be nice to have all that extra moolah...)
Maybe he just has a really severe case of belated buyer's remorse.
Seriously, I can't fathom this guy's obsession. I've never read anybody who "reviews" for a living who had that much stuff. Truly weird. I still need to finish reading the piece, but hey ~ Good luck to him when he replaces all his Apple stuff with MS stuff.
_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
Seems to me he has been brainwashed by his PC friends .
Correct me if wrong
1. Destroying MP3 player innovation through anti-competitive practices ;
His point is only iPods and therefore anti competitive . I believe only iPod will play AAC , so really he has this wrong . I think other MP3 players can be hacked for iTunes , maybe they don't want to pay apple a fee for iTunes whatever that might be .
2. Monopolistic practices in telecommunications;
This is dead wrong if he took the time to check , top of the line smart phones are all tied to one provider , more so if subsidized . Palm Pre example is tied to Sprint , dumb phones can be bought anywhere .
3. Draconian App Store policies that are, frankly, insulting;
Another dead wrong , Apple main goal was security quality - then you had those porn apps and shake the baby apps that creep in <-- try and imagine if Apple just let any hacker hose up apps at the store , lets call it the iCrap Store .
4. Being a horrible hypocrite by banning other browsers on the iPhone;
Not sure about this one , I believe that Safari for the iPhone is a special build . I don't think Apple is blocking other browsers per say just they are not 100% compatible , besides would you want to download bloated IE to a 8 gig iPhone ?
5. Blocking the Google Voice Application on the iPhone;
I sorta agree with this one - however Apple does have voice command , maybe Apple should allow Google on older iPhones pre 3Gs = Duplicating services does that create buggy possibilities ?
