    Agreed, Google would never do it. BUT you have to admit It's a nice thought to visualizing the panic in Apple's eyes if it did happen.
    Oh brother, I'm really reconsidering purchasing another Apple product.

    Got to tell you...people are getting sick of the Apple mafia. I loved the iPhone, but haven't seen a thing from them for over a year. Droid destroys the iPhone and Apple is getting nervous. You don't hear them talking about the Ovi store or anything like that....Android must be making them a little skittish

    No need to apologize Apple ruined it, I'm really considering buying a Chrome OS laptop to replace my Macbook Pro if it dies. That is if it can run all my Architecture software without a problem lol, if not then I'll just have to get another Mac BUT I won't enjoy it! I swear!!

    Macs are alright in my book, since they're not 'content driven' like the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad. :) It's still a computer.

    I wonder why MacRumors haven't put this up on their homepage? That puzzles me.

    The entire reason why Apple burned Adobe was because their drivers and software are resource hungry and buggy, two things that Apple is known to NOT have. And I'd have to agree with Jobs' assertion of such, ever since the whole GhostScript thing came out I've loved having other options to open/print/create PDFs, because Adobe's software has been soooo slow.

    As for the Apple/Microsoft marriage, I think Google picked an interesting sparring partner on purpose. How close do you really think Apple and MS will get? I'm willing to bet that's what Google pondered when they started Android.

    Oh, the flamewars that will be happening from now on...

    Google is still a baby as far as Stock is concerned.

    It's $535 a share, and only $167 Billion.

    Microsoft used to be over $600 Billion but now is around $240.

    Apple Is around $190 Billion I believe.

    Google will grow larger and larger and you will see it affect all people who stand in its path. The only way to beat google is to make an alliance of enemies.

    If Yahoo got with Microsoft, Google would have true competition. In fact Microsoft tried to buy google, but failed. Tried to buy Yahoo, failed but is still in talks (have been for almost 2 years)

    Google is gunning for world domination. All Google has to do is acquire Starbucks.

    Can you imagine? Android users all hopped up on caffeine searching for more paid-for apps in the Marketplace? I know Google's imagining it!

    I like the Droid better than the iPhone (though they both beat each other in individual areas), but I'll never use a non-Mac computer. I plan on buying an iMac sometime in the next year to replace my 4 year old MBP :)
