It's not a great introduction to jump in with name-calling. There's already enough egregious trolling here (even one member doing it is one too many) and so no need for you to do the same. Polite discussion will always be welcomed tho.If you have a good contribution to make like an interesting experience or viewpoint , or a new way of looking at things then please post away. Love to read new things. Insulting long-term members doesn't add anything and so it's not a good...
One thing Steve didn't like was his own children using iPads, or spending inordinate time with any other tech products. Felt it just wasn't good for them. Many others in the valley reportedly share the same view, even going so far as sending their sons and daughters to exclusive private schools like the Waldorf where computers are avoided altogether in the classroom. Instead there's emphasis on hands-on learning . Old school indeed!Suppose it shouldn't be any surprise...
Ah, gotcha. I had misunderstood. Including any computing device I wouldn't be shocked to find an Apple product in 60% of US households that own a computing device.
.The big grin at the end combined with the comment I replied to shouldl'a have made the intent kinda obvious.I suspect you were feeling a little defensive from an earlier post perhaps? I wasn't saying you were wrong about your comment that 33% of all desktop/laptop computer sales here in the US are Mac, just that I've never come across that claim elsewhere. Don't find anything when searching either. If if was just something you thought you remembered that's OK, but if...
Do realize my post about the lack of a keyboard was meant as a joke.
How do you account for the Netshare numbers tracking OS versions? Mac's certainly don't comprise 1/3rd. I also don't recall Apple ever saying that 1/3 of all computers sold in the US for home use are Macs but you no doubt have a link to that you can share.
But iPads don't come with keyboards
Yeah you're probably right. You shouldn't trust the study findings at all as they are obviously based on a flawed premise using unreliable data as you surmised. Who knows who's really #1. /s
If you look at OS version share I don't think it supports the view that Windows PC's in general don't have a long and useful life. Nearly 25% of those currently are using a relatively ancient PC with the at least 8-14 year old OS it came with, Windows XP. It 's not at all unusual to see Circa 2000-2010 Win PC's still computing away in dens and offices. They don't fall by the wayside as easily as you apparently...
Of note for those iOS users who enjoy those old Pokemon and DonkeyKong games and rely on emulators for play on their non-jailbroken iDevice.: News is that 8.1 is going to close the hole that allows those emulators to work. "The next version of iOS may not be an upgrade for fans who use their iDevices to emulate classic games. The latest beta version of iOS 8.1 removes the famous (or infamous) "Date Trick" workaround used by iOS emulator makers to bypass App Store...
