I'll post this now, in case I forget about it later (and I KNOW it's coming...):

Matsu, you're like a broken record! Can it, if you don't like Apple's pricing, buy a freakin' PC!!!

OK. That feels better.

Continue.

Well lets have a conference call BITCH good and proper, while we wait in joyful anticipation for the dissapointment we all perversely expect.

They had the nerve to say they were surprised by the fall off in unit sales (especially over the last two months)

WELL NO SHJT! You expect us to line up and throw money at machines that used to actually cost less, or machines with 18 month old MoBo technology and 1/2 speed CPU's ?

Get your heads out of your asses Apple. Have competitive product at reasonable prices, will sell. The rest is just BS, save your crying about margins and the rest for someone who cares. 27%+ is more than good enough. If you had units worth buying (@ decent prices) the MARKET SHARE you claim to care so much about would give you more than enough unit sales to pick up the slack of a slimmer margin.

PS, and Steve, wear an f-ing suit for once you hippie bastard.

Despite myself, I laughed my ass off at that.

And he's got to go the whole hog, not just wearing the top half of a tux and jeans like he did at the D&AD awards: it just looks wrong...

I am totally looking forward to the gripefest. Seriously, if some of you guys put your griping efforts towards something productive, you might just make something of yourselves......

Steve will release the iBitch, a tiny portable device that feeds negative commentary into your ear, especially about your daily wardrobe selections..."Gee Steve, if you wear a suit you'll look like some freakin' Linux rep, and they make your butt look huge!"

Taken from a different thread (no offense intended to "KidRed"):

I think I understand his point, although I'm not sure, but most importantly it's bitching about bitching and I thought that was extremely important.

I'll tell you what I want to bitch about. Anyone who states the following...

Apple couldn't possibly update ___________ because it has only been (any number less than 6) months since the last update.......

In a world where PC companies update their computer lines weekly, Apple can do more than update every six months. For god sakes upping the processor speed or changing the video card or the ram/hd amount can occur once a month if need be, it doesn't require a redesign or waiting forever.
