There is no way I'll spend money on Microsoft products right now. My Vista experience has been so bad that I just hate MS for putting it out. They stole more than one work week worth of hours from me because of needing to be on the telephone with tech support. I don't work in the programming field so I don't really need a Microsoft product. What I do need it for is to stream videos from Starz. They aren't set up for Mac or Linux. I have a web site creation program that...
At what point statistically will OS X need to reach before the Apple OS takes off? What is the growth rate of OS X users? There must be some point where everybody will have a best friend or relative who praises how good OS X is compared to Windows. One thing that might happen is OS X will never reach the masses in the low end market. Apple will just get people to purchase iPads. IPads might start to take over the PC industry instead of laptop versions with OS X....
I loved Leopard from the start. It took a couple of days to learn a few things about the different sections. The thing is I didn't need to change very much. Leopard recognized every peripheral device immediately. I only changed the mouse settings because I like the cursor to move faster and I changed how right clicking worked on the trackpad. When I got a Logitech Trackball I loaded a disc for that and set it up. In Vista the Task Manager must be open at all times so...
Deleted duplicate post.
I suppose this is just a percentage of computers and not users. Many people use Windows, OS X, and Linux. I don't know anybody that uses Sun. That must be from businesses. I have OS X Leopard, Ubuntu, and Vista. I use them in that order. I hate Vista. It would be interesting to know how many people use each exclusively. There are surely people who only use Windows or OS X. How many people use Linux exclusively without any other OS? I doubt very many. Are there any...
If Apple has expolice officers working for them then I don't doubt that they would break the law. Active duty cops always break the law. Give a psychopath a gun and a badge and that is what you get. I don't know any honest cops, NONE! http://www.scribd.com/doc/14202082/S...-and-Criminals
Chant; "Bigger screen. Bigger screen. Bigger screen...." If the iPod Touch could run Garageband it would be what I want. Since the iPod Touch is considered a gaming machine by so many people, a bigger screen would seem to be an upgrade that is due by now. What would Apple do if there are no upgrades to any of their music devices? Would they just skip mentioning them at the next event? Would Apple ever just skip having product launch events? Sometimes they just upgrade...
The more the merrier. I wonder what the price will be for the remaining run of Touchpads. They probably won't have the same low prices. HP will experiment to see just how high they can go and still get sales. They will probably try $250 and $299 at first. If they don't sell then they'll drop from there. Were there enough people getting Touchpads and falling in love with them to create a new demand at a higher price? If so the word of mouth could justify the higher price.
TV show rentals for $.99 was just too much to get me interested. I watch about five TV shows each week on the internet. My monthly internet charge is $36 plus fees and taxes. So already I'm paying over $1 per show if I were only using my internet for TV. Adding an additional charge for the Apple TV and rentals would just be too much money. Having Airplay would be a much better deal for people who want to stream things to their TVs. Streaming movies via Netflix is OK...
Then Steve turns to the board as he's walking out the door to say;"Oh, one more thing. I just bought HP".
