Apple "It's not that I despise Apple or the wonderful products it showcases year after year, but the fact that almost every first generation Apple product has serious quality assurance issues bugs me beyond belief. Let's take a look at two of Apple's most successful products, the company's portable music player and its notebook series."

Hey Yall lets get on the train to bash Apple yet again. Lets read yet another article that informs of us of what, that we may potentially down the road buy something from Apple that may or may not have issues. Personally I feel the author really missed another opportunity to also assure us that Macs can one day be infected by a virus. Yep I was so ignorant to buy my Macbook and as a real kicker do not run antivirus software. While we are at it he also forgot to rehash how linux is so much faster than OS-X.

Companies by there nature have one single motivation: to make more money (keep shareholers happy and profits up).

Period.

While companies have different philosophies and some varying methods, make no mistake - profit is the single goal.

Therefore, every company by it's very nature SHOULD be bashed once in a while Be it Microsoft, IBM, HP, or any other company. They will screw someone to make a buck. They will cut corners. They will lie. That's a company.

So yeah, Apple can get bashed once in a while. Did the person mention any of that? No?

Then go back under your bridge.

What was your point? All companies should be bashed to keep them honest? This is an absurd comment that lacks any sense of reality. Yes companies are out to make money but if thier sole purpose was to screw people they would go under.
