It already has to me, I can outspec a iMac for about 800 bucks. Peripherals and all.

Not hating, but just saying that Apple products are indeed overpriced. No way an i5 proc should cost 1200 bucks. thumb.gif

Back on topic, This is bad news for RIM. I loved my BlackBerry when I had it. I only changed because I was forced to by AT&T's hostile takeover of Alltel. I just wonder why they didn't consider the AndroidOS. It's as simple as flashing a new "locked down" ROM which keeps users from downloading apps and modifying permissions and it's super secure... I guess since Android is an entity, they don't wanna sit down and do the work, and want Apple to do it for them.

Either way I'm sad for RIM. I was looking at getting another BlackBerry. Wonder if they'll stay alive.

You expect governments to be rational and practical? Don't worry, once someone uses an employee's iPhone to hack into the NOAA they'll come to their senses.

I see. Out of curiosity, do you consider phones with similar price and features such as the Galaxy S II and Droid Razr to be toys as well?

Haha lol.

There's no doubt that building your own rig is cheaper, but it isn't fair to call the iMac overpriced because of that. Any system, and especially one with a different form factor like the iMac, will cost more than if you built your own rig. The iMac is great value, but ultimately you can't build an all-in-one, and a part of the cost you pay is the form factor.

You can't compare a custom to an imac on the hardware level because iMacs are aio. Compare other AIO of similar hardware and the iMac is in the same price range at base price. If you want to talk about RAM upgrades they sell then I agree with you. I own a MBP and the rig in the sig so I have the best of both worlds.

If you were comparing 2 towers then you argument would be valid. Just like with the Mac Pros. A similar tower would be around the same price if custom build. Of course you have to give lee-way for things such as labor, warranty, and tech support.

Simple. An app is advertised to do X but when you download it, it does Y while performing X. You won't see Y happening and will never know Y happened unless either someone looks at the code and finds Y or you accidentally stumble upon Y your self.

What makes you think a malware dev would just blatantly say, "hey this is malware, download it!"
