Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

Ok, maybe dumb was a bit harsh. What annoys me with OS x, is the windowing interface and the state of included utilities. Darwin ports and Fink are pretty bad repositories, they rarely have the tool I'm looking for. It inhibits the way I want to use the computer. Even cygwin on windows is better in many cases. KDE on windows is in better shape, for God's sake! Security updates for Java and flash have scared me off as well. Windows seems to be better on that front, too.

It also kind of ticks me off how they haven't improved things that I really liked, and thus devs have abandoned products. Like dashboard. Why didn't they ever start pushing those as standalone desktop Widgets? They're pretty much dead now. No one really updates the ones I liked.

Are these normal user complaints? I'm guessing not. They're issues that I and others I know have with it.
