    I wish that weren't true - but you're spot on.



    I don't understand it either - my whole family (age range 30-80) is windows and they are ALWAYS having trouble - ALWAYS asking for help, and I keep telling them (nicely ) that they could have 90% fewer problems by switching over - they don't use windows-centric software at work, they know that Office comes on Mac... I'm baffled.

    I hope Apple introduce two ultraportable things. One newton-ipod with some kind of super-portable-mini-OSX, and one 1-1,5 kg laptop.

    Well, the sad thing is that, even though its nowhere NEAR as bad as it used to be, Apple is still scaring away a lot of potential customers on price.



    Folks still look at Mac prices and go, "Yup, I guess I'm stuck with Windows, so I better learn to live with it." And they do. \

    Looking ahead to next year, Reitzes told clients that an Apple ultraportable device could further drive momentum towards the Mac platform. "As we have stated in previous reports, we believe Apple may be working on some kind of 'ultra- portable PC' or some devices that can bridge the gap between media playing, basic wireless computing needs and even some type of gaming," he wrote. "We would not be surprised to see new devices within the next year."



    "We believe Apple could see much better growth and drive this category if it stripped down features, optimized the device for media playing and web surfing and used its engineering and scale to drive prices down toward the $500-$600 level," Reitzes explained. "At this price, one million units could equate to over $500 million in revenue and over $0.05 in earnings-per-share."



    I'd buy it.

    That was a good one! Would go very well here in Oklahoma. Twisters are Mother Natures calling card.

    First is was the Macintosh. Then the OS and followed by the iPod.





    Next...the world.

    Apple and Adobe would truly be an awesome combination. Unfortunately, Adobe's market cap is around $20 billion dollars these days. Probably too rich for Steve's blood. \

    Did you make that piece of kindergarten humor, or why do you keep linking to it?
