This last times , they where not many bigs news and poll in the Future hardware forum. AppleOutsider, seems to become a more and more popular place. It's an animated place, with hard discussion and fun too.

What does it bring to you , the frequentation of this forum ?

I learn how other people think. People from different Countries or States. People who are of a different age. It's exciting. I may disagree with people but it's never personal even though sharp words may be tossed about. We all are driven by a common interest and that is Macintosh Computers but there are many other commonalities that we find by discussing things in Apple Outsider.

Currently right now most computers are kind of boring. I know things have been boring when people are discusing things like Bus Speeds and clock speed. The fun times are when computers allow you to do something that you could not do previously(low cost).

True ! when you own a Mac you cannot say to your PC friend that "mine is bigger than your"

I come here for your sentence syntax, powerdoc. OK also to learn something. Perhaps about Le Pen, or your sentence syntax...

Thanks Timo, but you have to correct my syntax, because i am agnosognosic ( a medical term meaning that i am ignoring my illness)

Not to correct, to enjoy. For whatever reason, I like hearing the French-to-English in your English ... I like that. I know, however, that the English-to-French in my French is particularly grating to French ears it's like the whole country has a rule that if you can't say it perfectly you're not allowed to speak at all.

Or is that just Parisians...anyway, I enjoy speaking nonetheless...

The great thing about AI is that its an invisible community, streaching across borders, continents, belifs and ethnicity. With only one thing in common; a fruity company, that we just might be atracted to because it shows us that there are more than one way of doing things...

now wasn't that deep... hehe

I've learned that JRC doesn't know what he's talking about.

AppleOutsider is particularly conservative/libertarian dense.

I've learned that many people here think they know a lot more than they actually do...

Many think they know less than they actually do...

And many know what they know and don't post unless it is appropriate...

You can sort out who is who on your own.

I would imagine so, based on the topics and replies. There are a few liberals that are willing to argue. Perhaps the majority IS liberal, but very few of them are willing or able to defend their positions. So in affect, the majority is not liberal.

Wow! I come away with the exact opposite feeling. I think the liberal opinion is expressed plentifully.

Funny how are take is different.
