The mini-tower is only popular because it's cheap, not because there is great customer demand. The demand for a mini-tower is so overblown on these forums. The Mac buying public at large is not crying out for a mini-tower. And I'll bet if you showed a Mac mini to most PC owners (i.e. not the hard core gamers and geeks), they'll wish their PC was that small too.
For some people, yes. For some, their Mail application is the center of their work day - all work starts and ends within mail, so To-dos actually work there. I don't know for certain, but I'll bet you can turn To-dos off in Mail if you don't like them.
Smart folders are just a fancy way of saying "Live Searches". If you think of them as an always up-to-date search, you may use them more effectively. For example, deal with the mail in the smart folders first, and you then won't have to deal with them in the inbox.
Sure you can - at your own risk, not Apple's. For Apple to provide functionality they have to be able to support it. If they can not or do not want to support functionality, then they are doing the correct thing in not supporting it. But if you ruin your iPod by doing something that Apple doesn't support, it's your own fault.
Given that the iPod is the only model that can hold most music fans' entire music collection, I disagree. I think the classic will continue to sell well. I just got an 80GB classic. Had there been a 32GB Nano, I may have purchased one as I'm using 25GB now.
What does MAC stand for? Are you a friend of Wakashizuma? Or are you Wakashizuma yourself. No self-respecting Mac geek will ever call a Mac a MAC. In fact, when I wanted to play games, I bought a console - not a PC. PCs are ridiculously expensive if you are just going to use it for playing games. And I use my Mac for everything else a PC can do.
Exposé is not meant to be just an application switcher per se. It's more of a visual window search tool. But the best part of Expose is the Desktop key in my opinion. For example, I'm in Mail and want to email an attachment on my desktop - I can hit exposé (desktop) to clear the windows, start dragging the file, hit the exposé key again and drop it on the window. This works great for dragging and dropping anywhere. The exposé application only key is handy too for "bring...
Parental controls - a nice idea I guess, but what do people think will happen to their children if they find "bad" words in the dictionary? They'll giggle for a few minutes and it'll be over. They're not going to then go out and rob liquor stores. I guess it's the same silliness as Janet Jackson's breast in the SuperBowl half-time show. People think it's a terrible thing, but can't really explain why.
Some companies are using iPhones as employee bonuses - did Piper Jaffray take that into account too. Purchasing 5 phones does not absolutely mean you will be unlocking them and reselling them. Though I do believe a significant portion of those sales probably are.
So what? A PC can't stand up to a Mac when it comes to productivity, usability, stability, and return on investment. What's your point? That's not the point. The point is when Bungie sold out to MS, ticked off Mac users said at the time: "no way MS will let you keep control." Those Mac users appear to have been correct. Nobody cares if your gaming PC can beat a Mac or not. Apple's market is not the hard core gamer - that's why they don't include the best video cards in...
