Whoever hates apple, post here!
« on: June 08, 2008, 02:06:57 PM »
I hate apple, so I want to piss off all the fanbois and make a topic just about how bad apple is.

Thank you. You all knew that this was going to have to happen eventually right!

As I already mentioned, apple's prices are bloated beyond any understanding. why is a macbook pro twice as much as the dell m1530 spec for spec?

They cripple everything. for example, the ipod nano, while it may be a decent player, it sucks. It doesn't have any good features. Most mp3 players have FM radio, expansion slots. Apple doesn't have that, and the nano is more expensive then players which have those options. The only reason people actually buy apple is so that they can say "look, I paid 3000 for my MBP, so it must be better then your crappy dell". That is beyond BS.

I can go on and on. It's erev yom tov I'll continue motzoi yom tov.

Good yom tov everyone, may you have all the blessings.

saying that apples prices are bloated is in no way going to get anyone mad, if you think the prices are two high don't buy apple! Although now with the release of the new iphone stating at $199 theres really no other phone with the same features for that price.

This is about as rational as "whoever hates latkes please post here." If you don't like it, don't use it. Nobody's forcing you.

Not only do I NOT like them, I despise them, and tell people to stay away from them. Truth is, I don't care. I just like picking on them.

Not sure if I want to open this can of worms, but I'll just say for now that I DON'T hate Apple.

I hate their marketing, and possibly what the represent as a company lately, but they make decent products.

What bothers me is when people make the mistake of assuming they are still somehow superior platforms... they were once, but that ended about 5-10 years ago. Its become a sort of "boutique" brand name, and gives people the illusion of superiority.
THAT's what I don't like.

Hate is a very strong word.
I hate supid people. I don't hate the products that stupid people use.

Mordy, I already mentioned that whole thing that people that use apple think it's better because it's got some "cool" features, jeez get over yourself macbois.

Btw, mordy, this guy no2chem is retarded, he's already holding beta G for the 5069 build. He seems pretty serious about not coming out with the 5070 before it's ready. I would love to see it when it comes out.

I can't say i "hate" Apple, but I have yet to see any good reason to spend so much extra money on their products.

I hate Apple for not putting an removable battery on the Macbook Air...that is the hottest most crippled laptop I've ever seen.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I know. I can guarantee they are sitting and laughing away at how stupid people are. Who the hell buys a "portable" laptop only to find out that when the battery is dead, they can't do zilch. Instead they have to start looking for an outlet, jeez people are stupid.

Dan, i and most people are pist about it, thought the reason Apple made it like that is simple to what i understand, if thy made a removable battery then thy need to make a way to remove it, which leads to a lock or something which then makes it harder to make so thin, and Apple or any company for that matter wont do something no-1 likes cause thy dont like you, thy do it in many cases for out benefit. As Mordy said a while back that Apple did a bad move by going to Intel and said cause it was better when thy make every part them self's but on the other hand Apple did it for our benefit so we can get more apps and more support, which can lead more gamers to move to mac soon.

And those who say thy dont hate Apple but dont find a reason to pay so much for it, what are you talking about? Look at a Mac compared to other computers not on sale its not to much more like you all make it sound like, Apple has there reasons for not putting it on sale, thy prefer to keep to a price and not have you get the Mac, or rather thy will get you to but a mac cause a friend paid the price and showed you how good it was, that's exactly how i got mine, a friend piad about $2500 for a macbook pro, he said it was the best thing he did and he got me to buy my Mac, i made my own sale for my Mac, i bought it from Apple and got a student discount, and plus a got a free iPod for a back to school promo, which then got my Mac for about $300 less then regular, which i macbook that i got cost $1099 i got it for $799 cause i had an iPod from Costco which i returned cause i got the free one.

Dan, you would buy the Air if you where able to remove that battery?

Yes.
Look at the sony TZ. It's only 11" compared to the air's 13" and yet it still has a DVD Burner, and a removable battery, which lasts about 8 hours. Gimme a break.
