    Jeremy, you're going to need to follow Sherman here over to the Wayback machine. Set the controls for 1978, Sherman. But Mr. Peabody, how will we get back when there are no IBM PCs in the world? Don't worry my dear boy, the Wayback machine runs on Apple ][s.

    Is this in a public or private school there? if its public shouldnt students be able to use whatever search engine they want? they get enough one sided teaching and propaganda as it is without censoring search engines

    The seas are parting. Apple and Google have soured. Let the war begin.

    I made simple BASIC programs on Apple ][s in school, but even then they were pretty rare outside of academics, and IBM dominated everywhere else, from my very limited memory of that early time in my life. I think I had an IBM AT, then a PS/2 at home during that time.

    I am actually typing right now on the keyboard that came with that PS/2.

    I have a stash of more than a dozen Unicomp (company that bought IBM's tooling for the mechanical keyboards) keyboards that I bought in the late nineties, in anticipation of my PS/2 keyboard eventual demise, but the PS/2 is still going strong, 22+ years later.

    True, but Microsoft is still looking for that "it" mobile device.... and platform.
    Google has Adobe, and Adobe's souring relationship with Apple. It'll be interesting.

    This is nonsense on Apples part. Apple makes nice products. I can't seem to understand why they would be so harsh on the competition. They just recently burned Adobe, as well, by stating that they will not put flash on the iPad nor the iPhone. Eventually they will budge when they see that they no longer have a monopoly on the mobile market, hopefully sooner than later. If I recall, I see plenty of iPhone reference in the Android Market. What's the big deal anyway?

    I wish Google would take Youtube Access away HAHAHAHAHAH, just as a scare tactic. That would totally piss off a lot of iPhone Users and get Apple really scared! I know it'll never happen though since Google isn't Evil like that lol

    Just because you ignore something, doesn't mean it isn't there.

    Its just a matter of time before Android takes over. I'm not saying Apple won't be a factor, as some people will always love their devices, but the Android OS is growing in leaps and bounds.

    This would singlehandedly destroy Apple. All the :iphone: users would go "OMG WTF AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH OMGOMG OMG I CAN'T WATCH YOUTUBE NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" and throw away their apples and go buy droids :icon_ banana:

    The way Apple is acting it may not be out of the realm of possibility.
    If I was Google I'd do it. Think of the impact it would have..... :icon_ banana:
