of course theres good and bad to mac and pc. My pc doesnt go a week without freexing, or having trouble restarting at least once a week. But aside from that, people just buy what suits them. If you want to play games get a pc. If you have too much money then get a mac and have your designing computer. IMO, a mac is JUST for that, designers. Anyone else with a mac is just being a bit silly because of how much more you can get for the same money. The whole virus thing on computers is a joke. I've never got the sasser worm or any virus that destroyed my pc, and every other time that i did get a virus, norton got rid of it, or i restarted in safe mode and deleted it.
The simple fact is that apple is on a roll. Despite the fact that their ipod's have piffling battery life next to the competition, a non removable battery life, a pathetic e.q, and flaws such as cracking screens (on the nano), they are still no. 1.. Audiophiles like their sound 'flat' or 'untainted' or 'uncoloured'. I am one of those that likes to be able to use an e.q and actually feel some bass and trebble. Some people don't mind having what everyone else has in fact some actually like it. I don't. The other side of the coin is that I am a Sony fanboy. Ive got ;
sony computer speakers, a micro system, an nw-hd5 mp3 player, an mds-jb980 minidisc deck, an mz-r909 minidisc player. The reason being because they have always made good quality stuff and i just like their designs.
It's not so much the adverts that annoy me but that fact that the competition is mostly just sitting on teir asses twiddling their thumbs and thinking err duh hhh i wonder what those ad's are for. I mewan even fricking sony, the only advert ive seen from them is 'the bouncing balls' Bravia advert. Im sure the fad wil pass in another year or two. I mean, what more can they do to the ipod? They have kept everything the same on the regular ipod except for revamping the click wheel, the screen and the battery. If the ipod doesnt die out, the opposite will happen and it will be become even more ofa 'design icon'. But the only way i see that happening is if apple stops seling the variants and says 'this is our last design-come n get it sheepies' lol.
