Don't be hatin'... On second thought go ahead.
Just what Apple needs, another odd-ball language. Next they should come up with a replacement for English, so that people that want to use Siri can communicate more effectively, in an intuitive, interactive and fun way.
Everyone called me a hater when it first came out, but the price difference simply wasn't great enough between the 5c and the 5s. If the off-contract price of the 5c had been around $350 or $400 Apple would have had a hit on their hands. I was in the market for a new for on Virgin Mobile, and if the 5c had been available in that range I would have seriously considered it. As it was I went with the Galaxy S3.
This is a stupid comparison since on most Android phones, including the Galaxy S series, you can install whatever size SD card you want. Apple should get with the program. Oh, that's right, they don't give you access to the files system because they think we're not smart enough to navigate a folder hierarchy.
Quote: You're "Cuisinart" comment basically boiled down to "If I don't like Apple I should just go away" Well no actually. I make my livelihood writing software for Apple operating systems, as I mentioned in a previous post.  I understand things from Apple's perspective. Why would I want to voice their perspective? I am voicing my own perspective.    Again with the personal attacks.  And other companies don't have these costs? Apple is special. Especially profitable....
 You called me stupid in your last post, and foolish in this post, and you have resorted to swearing and using capital letters. Please be careful or you may get high blood pressure. I have a right to post my comments as much as you do. I work in this industry, and I am not a casual bystander. Do you think the only people who have any reason to post here are those who fawningly praise everything that Apple does?  I am not interested in thinking about how Apple should...
 I wasn't responding to you, but I will address a couple of points here:Yes, no one is holding a gun to my head. That is why I haven't bought an Apple product in several years, and why I don't often recommend their products to my friends anymore. Apple has left me behind, and I don't really much like the company they are becoming. Who needs the hassle? Excuse me, but $75 is a lot for some people. Maybe you've heard of this thing called "the great recession?" Apple is...
 Why do you choose to attack me personally? It makes you seem a little defensive, which is weird, because I'm not in any way insulting you. I like Apple, and have bought their products for years, but there are places where their offerings fail me, and things they do that annoy me. Storage is simply a bad way to differentiate products. It pushes Apple towards making their widgets completely closed. Closed widgets have shorter life-spans, and by definition are less amenable...
Calm down. I'm not personally attacking you, and Apple isn't a person, so I can't personally attack them. On the other hand, I am a software engineer, and have been writing applications for Apple computers for over 20 years, and as such I can tell you the actual utility of OpenCL is limited. Not all algorithms are suitable for OpenCL, and at best a application needs to be reworked in order to take advantage of it. So, for most people one of those GPUs is going to sit there...
>1) If you knew more about the Mac Pro you wouldn't be saying that.   Care to fill me in? Look, what I want is a "big brother" to the Mac Mini. For under $2000. The Mac Pro is ridiculously expensive. OK, great, so if you price out the individual components of the most expensive configuration Apple is delivering some value, but on the other hand Apple has been ripping us off on storage for years. And this is really no different. They've made an impressive machine that has...
