I have my issues with Apple - mostly because they tie their non-computer devices to their specific versions of their OS. I'd have no problem with purchasing an iPod, if I could connect it to a regular style computer, and not be forced to purchase their proprietary, $3000 piece of garbage. For years, Apple was "better" because it was much less bloated and ran better than anything MS brought out - but while Apple has put their OS on the high fat diet that has made it corpulent and sluggish - MS has really scored high with Win7, which was put on a significant diet.
Google does wierd things, like they constantly fool with GMail - lately it gives me an error that I am running Internet Explorer - duh - like, it's a Windows machine that is corporate, so i have zero ability to use another browser. Can't they just make the silly error go away?
I think Google is working on jumping the shark; just like Apple jumped the shark when it started to chop device support in broad strokes in their push to sell people on their current, obsolete, feeble machines that they attempt to market now. Lets hope ChromeOS isn't as lame...
