Why We Hate Apple...
Just read this aricle via BBC about how iPods are fueling a surge in Apple's bottom line. I have to give Apple credit for selling their iPods so well. Then again I have to smack anyone who buys one. Why do you ask?
1) There are a million alternative Mp3 Players on the market. I have one that holds 20G's worth of music, and it cost half the price of a similar iPod.
2) The batteries only hold a 3 hour charge, and die after 18 months. No expensive extended warranty, say goodbye to your music. (My charge lasts 16+ hours... HA HA!!!)
3) It's trendy!!! For got sake, what ever happened to originality or independence? Anything trendy sucks, unless of course it's something that I like. To me, iPods are the Britney Spears of Mp3 Players... fun to look at, but a waste of time and money.
So I go back to why most people don't like Apple Computers.
Here's reason one:
There are a gazillion better alternatives out there:
Here's reason two:
I bough a PC with 3 times the capability of the best Mac found on the link I provided, yet mine was 1/3 the cost.
Here's reason two...thousand:
(Link) Yes, childish, but to the point.
In conclusion, I'm upset because I'm tired of hearing how Apple is so much better than a PC. I challenge any Mac to a race against my PC. Meet at 'Dead Man's Curve', midnight tonight. We'll see who really wears the silicon testes around here. Yes.... I will admit that I like Apple when it comes to music composition software, but that's it. That's the only positive thing I can think of. So unless I ever start competing with Fatboy Slim in the computer-generated music market, I will never, ever, ever waste a dime on an Apple product.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
