So since my lil side topic.. Was way off topic i thought i would post a thread so we can talk it out.
Apple makes great products that tend to last an average of six years. Pc makes up-to-date products that last an average of two years. So the real question...
Buy a product thats over priced, out of date(after a few months) and have it last six years.. Or buy a pc with all the gadgets for a third of the price, outdates fast, and will be exhausted after two years thus having to buy.. Another pc. At the end of the three years the cost is about the same.
I have two 1st gen apple tvs, 2 ipod touches, 2 ipod classics, at least 10k wrapped up in itunes(thank the lord they let you download past purchases)... So am i against apple.. Cleary not.. I just prefer to get the newest and greatest every two years(same with tvs)
I really hat the mentality people have about owning apple products... Thats what i hate. I once had a guy call in to my work at TransUnion and he was all pissed because he couldnt access a secured website via his iphone. I kept saying "its not secure to receive that webpage via 3g" he ststed.. But.. But its an iphone its secure. He didnt understand that his phone may be secure but the signal that hes receiving the data from is not.
Also i hate how apple is all inclusive ir monopolize everything. Any cable, software, hardwae ect.. Has ti be apple approve which.. Is good fir the older folks whom may mess something up.. But its not for me(both of my parents have iphones)
Iphone 5 is going to suck, i hope you guys dont plan on jumping on that band wagon. They changed the pin connectors so all electronics(stereos, ipod players) wont work with it.. Juat adding more monopoly merchandise.
