Legal Remember when Steve Jobs launched the iPhone, and held it up in the air, proudly proclaiming "Boy, have we patented it", followed by a massive applause of the adoring audience? It may seem like this wasn't just an empty claim, either. During the earnings conference call yesterday, the company hinted at possible legal action against Palm were the Pre to infringe on iPhone patents.

I was an applefan... But not anymore...

What are they doing. The G4/400 I bought was soooo solid, so well built... The iMac was plastic crap... Almost all went wrong, the harddrive, the ram the monitor were flickering... I was so dissapointed. And now, Apple sues here and there... I bought two iPhone's, one for me and one for my wife. But the Rotten Apple will NEVER have a penny from me anymore... Never... Crap Apple, Rotten Apple. I regret I paid all those $$$ to U... ;)

Even to use iChat I have to pay lots of $ to use it... Yearly... Crap! I installed Google Chat and used that instead. I will be Google Guy from now. My Norwegian Kroner will go to others but not Apple...

Bye.


(My wife will still have the iPhone, I guess... I will give mine to her sister...

And i Will buy a G1 or a Palm Pre.

Rotten Apple sucks... ;) I'm so dissapointed. (Sorry guys for my rant. But I really mean it. I thought Apple was different...

Apple is a company. That means they want to make money. And that means they are not different.

I am amazed at how many people think Apple is "different". Yes, they have some great and innovative people, but that's it.

The plastic PowerMac G4 is somehow different from the plastic iMac?

What are you talking about having to pay to use iChat? You don't need a .mac/MobileMe account to use it....
