Perhaps the answer is to only provide ports at the front (Like Mac Pro) that are either for temporary connection (such as a camera) or for things like headphones which directly interface with the user. Beyond that I think ports out the back is more functional for cable control! and is obviously less fug
...you keep shooting down my arguments with perfectly valid counterpoints!! The funny thing about the iMac in a reall world use is the amount of cable clutter.... unless of course you purchace all the peripheral stuff like, airport and wireless mouse/keyboard. You know, I would have to say that the best, by far laptop I ever had was the Pismo. All the ports were at the back and the optical media came out the side. Inserting a DVD into the Macbook Pro feels ergonomically...
True, but are we comparing Apple as a whole to Wintel or MP3 as a whole or cherry picking the best bits from Wintel or MP3 against the worst of Apple? Apple aint perfect by any means, but as a whole it tastes better than Wintel I'd have to say that the nippled mighty mouse is half arsed/ half baked (bit like the original click wheel), when you compare to the way the trackpad works (The whole two finger thing is great.....well I like it!) I certainly think Apple needs...
[QUOTE=JeffDM]Unfortunately, Apple is a business that tries to be different almost to the extent of being solely for the sake of being different, and often times, style over substance. I think you are somewhat right here, except that I would say that Apple sees aethetics as an important aspect of the product where as the general PC market (well, pretty much all of it) doesn't. Why shouldn't products be beutiful. In any case I use my mac for business (as well as...
you think the iMac is hideous??? Is there something better than an iMac. Sony doesn't even come close to the aesthetic prowess of Apple industrial design. (Actually I am always bemused when Apple nuts get excited about Sony industrial design - its clunky and overlayed with stylistic devices to make it look good) Apple industrial design, from the box it comes in to the power brick to the core product itself is almost unique, in its total design approach (Then add on...
its not easy being an antipodean and keeping up with you lot.... I generally read all this stuff after you've all gone to bed!it is good to see the occasional bouts of inane puerility accepted for what they are.... inane puerility.
you buggaI'll take 13!!
sorry... It looks as though MS are simply mimicking the general form factor of the iPod so that there is an association to the iPod, and that equals quality, ease of function etc. They then differentiate the device to give it a percieved edge regardless of whether that differentiation is usefull or not. Then they flog the thing for less than cost and make it look like its a genuine hit Then the masses buy them like sheep (But this may take many years and lots of M$)
tenth post!!!! ten times cooler than noo-mer-o uno
Agreed, but is there no obligation for companies like Apple to conduct there business ethically (And I am in not way suggesting that a Company like Apple is generally unethical)? For example Nokia is listed on ethical managed funds so therefore must act ethically.
