[BGR] Half of all U.S. households own at least one Apple product - Page 5

post #41 of 201
I bought an ipod nano, turns out because of luck they replaced it with a new version. I still hate apple, still explain to people why the shouldn't buy their products, and will never buy another apple product. They are a bad company that pretends to be good (Chinese slaves), they hold back innovation, they lie, they charge you a ton for nothing, and they basically cater to vain shallow people. I got the newest toy herp derp, I paid $500 so I could unlock my hardware derpload herpity derp.


STILL CANT PUT FLAC ON AN IPOD 2012 HERP DERP

i'm 50/50

I would probably be 100% apple fan boy except for 3 things.

1. No game support.
2. The programs I use for work are PC only
3. for what I need, macbooks and imacs are too slow for my needs/too expensive for the top end models with high performance.


So what do i do?

Built a 5ghz watercooled hackintosh thumb.gif

all for the price of a macbook pro. sure the tower and monitor, is not as pretty as a mac pro, but I can live with that knowing a similar apple built system would cost me
$3000+

And to all the haters who are claiming they are an immoral company who uses chinese underpaid workers, please realise most electronic goods are built in the same type of factories, and if you think those conditions are bad, just look at how your clothes are made, and the mark up prices of those.

Read what he said again. He wasn't saying send man to the moon. He was saying send the whole US continent to space.

You can use other programs to sync with Apple products wink.gif I haven't touched Windows/OSX in a while and still sync my phone from Linux just fine.

We can go there anytime we want, we own the moon. Oh, the United States is a country by the way.

Take it easy. Just calm down. There's no need to get upset. We're all fine here.

Also, since when is the US a continent?

This.

People say Windows sucks compared to Apple all the time at my school yet they all have a Windows device at home and the ones who don't go all like "I don't have Windows so I can't run MS Office" when they have to type something.

The best part is that all that made him an ideal candidate for working with the president.
