I think they're more worried about putting up youtube videos with pretentious intros.

yea sure when I'm running Crysis, fps and image quality doesn't matter, all that matters is that OS has big shiny buttons for babies.

on my iPod i had to jailbreak to get the battery life, the weather sitll isn't available on the homepage, i can't downgrade without an SHSH (wonder why), and the UI is static rather than there being other ways i can use to interface with the device.

on the same token there are those who detest WM Classic. user experience is subjective

Has anyone noticed that the world is getting a whole lot crazier in the last 3 weeks?
First Charlie Sheen goes off his rocker and now Apple is squawking about some crazy ideal world where they won't need to disclose the product people are are purchasing...

Yep, Apple customers are so dumb right? Go to apple forums and PC forums and look up “post your car” threads. On the apple forums you will find BMWs, Audis, etc. On the PC forums you will find Mazda Miatas, Chrysler Lebarons, and camaros.
I cannot believe that you just made that link LMAO

What a dunce....So you're saying that since these people drive an expensive car, they are superior intellectual beings? You sir are the text book definition of a fanboy

No, I'm actually more worried about Comping and Editing the Studio Tracks that were laid down last week when I was in Nashville, than uploading videos to Youtube

Even so, it's a good thing the only thing they have to worry about is uploading Youtube videos, as opposed to worrying about random driver crashes from their windows environment

For real though, that was a crude generalization.

Are you saying that having a more expensive car makes you smarter? Because that would be really dumb.

You must not have learned "Future History" in college.
We wouldn't have to worry about iSkynet. It would have terrible specs, be overpriced, and would only be able to wipe out the average user.

What does being the first thing people think of have to do with quality?
"Think of something brown."
"Human excrement."
"That must definitely be the highest quality brown thing."

I think the point trying to be made is that Apple users tend to be smarter, have higher paying jobs, and have nicer cars.

A grossly stupid argument, but funny nonetheless.
