    Yikes! A little heated here I see.

    I didn't spend thousands on my Mac because I bought the Mac mini and it is an awesome little machine. On it I have inDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Microsoft Office for Mac.

    I love Office for Mac because it works beautifully and it wasn't changed as it was for the PC.

    What I really like about Apple products is how they work together. So my mini and my iPhone and iPod update together. Nice.

    I really don't want to know how to build a computer or how to fix it. To me it should be like a tv, turn the darn thing on and it works. And that is what Apple is really good at.

    I've got macs, iPads, and iPhones all over my house, all paid for by the massive buckets of cash I've made owning their stock. So I say Jobs was great.

    But yeah, that all-fruit diet probably killed him. He traveled and learned a lot from other cultures, but he didn't learn how to eat.

    See, that would be my least favorite thing about apple. I have an iPhone and a pc and a plain Jane mo3 player and a kindle. The apple stuff is a pita to transfer over and I can't buy books on my kindle ap ( where I could on the android I had before)

    On the neg side, my iPhone has broken twice in a year and had to be replaced, on the pluses they replaced with low hassle and no cost at the store.

    This goes for every company ever including Apple, no?

    I meant any tech shop, even mom and pop ones, and people like me who did it for side cash for a while. It's really, really not very hard.

    What I find interesting is that his high carb-high sugar/fructose diet did not increase his appetite at all. He seem to have been inclined to fast. (Sigh) I wish I had the same metabolic make up or whatever it is that allows a person to eat fruit and lose weight while at it.

    "You're wrong" is not a successful rebuttal. Plus there is nothing opinion based in that post you quoted. No one with common sense will ever get a virus in this day and age. The only way to get a virus is to do some browsing in the wrong places and basically actively go out looking to get a virus. And, even then, there are plenty of precautionary steps to take to ensure that you likely still won't get a virus, unless you click and open some .exe that you downloaded from iswearthisisnotavirus.com/hot-teens-in-your-area-want-the-d.html

    Yes, it's easy to maintain and fix (if ever necessary) a PC. Even I, someone with basic computer knowledge can do it. I have owned HP factory assembled since '09 and it still works great. I think I paid less than $600 then, and none of the features and specs are obsolete yet, for the applications I need it for. In all honesty I can't compare it to a Mac as I've never owned one. As a side note I wanted to smash my iPhone into the concrete sidewalk on SEVERAL occasions yesterday.

    My son, on the other hand likes to assemble his PC's and it seems that he *needs* an updated graphic card or a processor (unlocked, of course), or something else every 6 months . So, in that regard I'm probably spending enough $ on components to buy me a new mac book once a year.

    You really, really don't want to do that...

    Also, I can buy 3 cars for the price of a macbook.
