That list doesn't leave much room for critique or statement of alternative preference. It almost seems that the only way NOT to be labelled a troll is to post only praise for Apple.

 

Or maybe that's just my interpretation, biased by my love/hate relationship with Apple. I keep buying their stuff, mostly because I prefer their operating systems over the alternatives, but many of their hardware decisions drive me crazy and often make me wish there was another choice as I'm giving them my credit card number...

"Almost", but not really.

Heck, I feel the same way sometimes. Why they haven't been the first to adopt every new release of OpenGL for the past ten years, I don't know. Why they don't want to give us absolutely ludicrous amounts of vRAM even if the GPU isn't (and shouldn't be, really) top of the line, I don't know. Why Apple isn't pump-and-dumping Thunderbolt into the industry to force the death of USB and all video-specific ports out there, I don't know.

Agreed. Plus the "I don't wanna" factor. I could learn new commands and procedures relatively easily, but I don't wanna. I already deal with all kinds of changes in my life; don't add to the pile. I'm busy, distracted and a little bit lazy. If you make checking my messages too much different than the way it is now I'm gonna bitch and whine and flood Apple's support line with stupid questions.

That was hammered into me as "good form." Has that changed?

I remember it changing in the mid '90s, personally. 1hmm.gif Rather, that there was a stigma about it then. I've never done it, myself. You don't do it in writing, for example.

That is, of course, part of what the critics are complaining about -- how long they perceive it is taking for Apple to fire.

 

Lots of people have made perfectly valid arguments explaining and justifying the existing release cycle as completely reasonable, but it's understandable how one might become frustrated as competitors release cool new products and Apple says "Just wait 'til Christmas!"

That sounds like more than I do with my iPhone. Contrary to what you're saying, isn't that EXACTLY how people use an iPhone? What do iPhone users do that's different?

Well the iPhone does have a very strong vibrating ringer. 1wink.gif
