<strong>I wish the Mac community didnt behave like such a bunch of sheep. We need to hold Apples feet to the fire. We like to blame Motorola, Microsoft, and other lesser villains, but we should bring Apple to task as well. They can do better. For far too long, they have used and abused the loyalty of the Mac community. They have also failed in their most basic mission and promise to their shareholders. That of increasing market share with all the ramifications that this entails. I dont want to switch. I really dont. I used Macs exclusively since grade school. But I feel like Apple is almost forcing me to.</strong><hr></blockquote>
Maybe where you live there's not this interesting concept called consumer freedom. The way to tell Apple to change is to switch.
Why do people buy expensive german cars? In most respects they are inferior to american and japanese equivalents. But there's amystique about them that causes people to but them. Try calling Mercedes and telling them "Make really plain cars that are cheaper." Not going to happen.
