The general public? Or a few technophiles & hackers who get a kick out of making the products 'their own'. I'd argue Jobs is actually very much in touch with the general public's requirements but the general public mistakenly ask the technophiles what they should get which is about as sensible as asking a teenage petrol-head which family car you should buy iPod shows this is changing, people aren't fooled by techno-babble anymore. Apple need to target consumers directly...
Sorry, was that some kind of lame excuse for increasing those bills?Based on what? Their continued increase in market share for iMac & iPhone product lines (hard to increase iPod market share) and a market capitalisation that's stormed past Dell & HP (onlt IBM & MS to go). What planet do you live on? McD
You twist & turn like a twisty, turny thing! If Apples updater fails to fix the hacked files and the phone gets bricked it's the consumer's bad decision - not Apples. Why should the rest of us foot the bill for Apple having to clean up after hackers. If the consumer doesn't like, the consumer shouldn't buy. McD
Why? Specs alone don't dictate how good a product is that's down to design and 'prettiness' is also a symptom maybe even an indicator. We saw through buying stuff on spec when we opted for Macs. McD
Because Windows is an independent product line, OSX is integral to help promote Mac hardware sales. They may both be OS's but they address their markets in different ways. Because the IT industry is primarily self-serving and it perpetuates itself by perceived complexity - remove that and it's dead. In fact move it's value proposition to 'enhance business productivity' rather than 'we need computers' and it's also dead which leads us to......because media departments are...
But d'you think that people will get it?... Just as iPhone is to Windows-based smartphones and iPod is to Windows Media-based Players so Mac is to Windows-based computers? McD
Zune 2 isn't the 'competitor' more the 'pretender' In fact most MS products are 'pretenders' (there must be one that isn't) They placate people who won't see past Microsoft and the only reason it will sell is because of AmazonMP3. Did anyone else notice that while we were looking at AmazonMP3 as an iTunes competitor it's also a real nail in the coffin for Plays4sure stores - good to get people off MS DRM lock-in not that the need much convincing. Didn't mean to go off...
Apparently buying a Zune also leaves a nasty taste in one's mouth McD
That developers, marketing people & everybody else at MS must gag when they have to put p-p-p-p-podcast capability in their products!! Love it!! McD
Brave words but you know a Symbian-fan frequents these boards. Probably spell-checking a vast response with hyperlinked references as I post. McD
