    Interesting points. Apple is in a transition from the cool, exclusive underdog to the leading high profile tech innovator. Say what you will, but if they hadn't made the iPhone we wouldn't have Android. Apple gave the market the kick in the pants it needed.

    Yeah I am a mac owner, so I do have some bias in me. But it does seem Apple is really struggling to handle the fact they have become the "IT" company. It's amazing what a little (in this case a lot) of success will do to you. They should just sit back and not say a word about this and leave people speculating about the phone but they had to make a HUGE deal about it. Maybe they are doing this for a publicity stunt. Not saying they set the whole thing up but now that they know the phone made it into public spotlight they have decided to run with it and make a big deal.

    I've had Apple/MAC since the Apple II and my current MAC is a MACPRO quad-core Xeon. AND I think Jobs brain has turned into mush! Apple makes me want to pull my hair out!

    BTW, I have bunch of Win machines too.

    heh, I'm running a Hack. My poor MBP recently died. Currently saving up to buy a new one. I can build a desktop, but I'll go with the real deal for my laptops. If only Apple would make a tower between the mini and pro. Maybe one day i'll break down and get an iMac.

    good read. cant deny the fact that apple makes some neat products, but also cant deny that the people that run that company are douche bags. with that, i'm sure that wont change the views of it's followers that buy every product they make
