@i900frenchaddict: I know what you mean, apple came up with the idea of windows, go figure. (shit i know i shouldn't have posted that, mac flock +1)
@CloudStrife86: This will always continue to happen, and actually, has always happened, remember the nokia 3310/3330 for example? same story, pretty shitty mass production phone, but it was a fashion-statement to have one, same applies to ALL of apple, which i gotta say is actually pretty good marketing from apple.
The odd part is (what you describe) that Apple keeps acting as if they've come with the new revolution, while with most of their inventions their way behind times.
Hopefully sooner than later this realization will hit the mac folks, upon which they will all go for android phones (which im sure at the time will be super-duper-user-friendly) after which the story repeats itself, and again, and again.
Imo theres 2 kinds of people when it comes to hardware (in general), the first kind either knows what is best or does extensive research to find out whats best, or even what can be made the best, the other kind bases his/her idea on what they see in their surroundings and what is expensive, if both apply, it must be a good product no?
is apple's trick to sells these things, and this
is a good indication of how high steve thinks of himself/apple (bscly saying that if a mac crashes, it must be because of google or adobe)
