Apple is currently being sued right now, *no surprise* because they lied... again. Not only that, but they have wasted all of their ideas

I think I smell a troll... several posts in the same short period all highly negative.

Most large companies are involved in several legal actions at any given time. Not to say this is right or wrong, but it is how it is.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Hmmm.


http://www3.bc.sympatico.ca/greenacres/macusers.htm

Just a few notable Mac users who have been a little more successful than the average Joe:

Drew Carey, Clint Eastwood, Jodie Foster, Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, Jerry Seinfeld, Aerosmith, Bjork, Bono, Jan Hammer (think Miami Vice soundtrack), Madonna, Seal, Hans Zimmer (music for Crimson Tide), Douglas Adams (writer), Tom Clancy, Mario Puzzo (wrote The Godfather), Troy Aikman (yep, a real man), Robin Williams, George Lucas, Joel Schumacher, Michael Jackson, Bare Naked Ladies, Lockeed Martin, NASA.

Oh, by the way, Microsoft also uses Macs. Bill Gates himself was the first person to buy a Mac.

Just a short list.

More are here:

I don't know, but it looks like Mac users are in pretty good company.

iMacs are not the only compies those people have. btw, most of those people that u had listed are artists, and iMacs are good for art and those sort of things like music, movie making, digital drawing, etc. The ones that you listed that are not artists are rich people. There is a phsychology with rich people that gives them the desire to buy expensive things (studies have proven this). Anyways, you don't even know the motives of why Bill Gates would buy an iMac. One more thing, about that idiot comment, I said that because by the sounds of it, that guy is not very strong willed or he is easily convinced.

This is a short list of succesful PC users (individuals/groups)
Ozzy Osbourne, Gwen Stefani, Alec Baldwin, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Martin Short, Steve Martin, ACDC, etc.

btw, the guy who owns AMAZE entertainment uses iMacs, but all his work compys are PCs

The people who sell iMacs, such as the people at those Apple stores, can convince an extremely stubborn man to buy one of their products, and that's not because "iMacs are the best" (like they ever will be), but it's because of their Conman like tactics.

Having a good sales force is important to any business. A product is only as good as its ability to be sold, and in the all-in-one desktop market the iMac has quite good sales figures.

"skyrocket" is a term used for growth, which I can assure you is an area Apple is doing fine. So what if the PC userbase is larger than the iMac userbase? How does this impact anything that we don't already know?

And somewhat flipping out his former PC using cohorts, since Peter's not the kind of guy you can lightly dismiss as a "fanboy."

Psst. Scientists use Apple compys too.

Bill Gates probably owns an Apple computer. Not only because he's rich but because he is good friends with Steve Jobs.



Also, there's this word you might want to look up, it's call Coopetition. Might enlighten you too.

More Bill & Steve stuff.

Well, I wouldn't go that far... Steve has a clear disdain for Bill Gates. This was very evident to me when they were both on stage at the All Things Digital conference.

Really? I linked to it in my post. Didn't sense that at all. That photo's from the very same conference. Having dinner with their families has also been inferred by both Jobs and Gates.

Is Steve holding up the much rumored MacBook Clear in this pic?

A very good reason for that is that the original poster was a troll.

No, just saying his is this big.

Bill Gates is saying "Really? Beats mine." [demonstrating with his left hand].
