Here it comes weenies.
Here it comes weenies.
Let me guess. We'll rue the day.
I want it.
Maybe I should've typed:
Just to separate myself from the Pcad Groupies. They scare me.
Pcad is an Apple Nazi?
I am disappoint
I'd be interested if it had a roll-able or fold-able screen
7 inches in my pocket would make the other members jealous.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
Damn, I'll have to get two. One to **** on and another to cover it up with.
Well, it certainly does appear to be an unfortunately named product. Think of all those who speak languages where the letter "a" is normally pronounced "ah". We're talkin' confusion here....
We'll see how it is. I've gotten one of almost every other major Apple product so far.
Yawn. i don't care.
The search for inner peace continues...
I hear Apple stock has risen to an all time high. On a completely unrelated note, the quote "No one ever went broke overestimating the stupidity of the American public" comes to mind.
^^^^ and also a company that has persuaded people to believe that devices neither need buttons nor user replaceable batteries
^^^ when the device needs the battery replaced, it's outta fashion, and you need to move on anyway.

P.S. the new MacBook Pros have a battery life of 6-7 hours by virtue of the greater capacity battery possible by the non-user-removable design. Replacing the battery when it wears out takes 20 mins at one of the 250+ Apple stores (and they'll add 50+ each year going forward) worldwide. Every 1.5-2 years. Oh no, what a massive inconvenience.
I thought about getting the iphone, but after playing with them for a number of hours, I decided that keyboards and scroll wheels are handy things on devices if you actually browse or type that much.
I could have possibly overlooked even those shortcomings, except being forced to lock in with a crap company that charged way more than the competition really is a deal buster in my book. I can use my phone to tether my laptop without getting in trouble.
We regularly hire people who identify themselves as being Mac people since they really do think different. Fortunately, we have a training program to bring them up to speed. We explain that you point at the icon that looks like the program you want to use and that if you want text to appear on the screen, you should press the corresponding buttons on the keyboard in front. They are instructed not to be distracted by keyboards or mice that make ergonomic sense. Once they've been introduced to those crazy concepts, they do fine.
