Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

... And since I run both Windows 7 Aero and OS X in real-time on my Mac using VMWare Fusion using the multiple screen Spaces utility which allows me to quickly switch between environments (with a tripple click of my Mighty Mouse!)...


This is the second time you are mentioning this as if you are trying to impress or infer that you are some sort of "ubergeek" or something. Couldn't care less for your configuration. Once upon a time (early '80) I used to be impressed, like when we installed disc units on IBM mainframe they were 1MB and the size of a fridge.

Apple is rotten. No way around this fact. It starts with a paranoid schizophrenic maniac that runs his business like a dictatorship, conveniently choosing to forget "1984" add they used not so long ago. Reneging on warranties (Applecare, external iphone water indicators ...), senseless license agreements (iphone eula, developers agreements, application rules ...), pushing faulty equipment for sale (iphone 4), attempt to control content on the internet (DRM, appstore, .h264, etc) and list goes on ... and on...

While they were sitting on the margins they couldn't afford such liberties, but now thanks to users who subscribe to preachings of mr. jobs and who can't see the forest because of a tree they've outdone microsoft in terms of being evil.

Oops, guess you're really not going to like the video I just posted then. Guess one guy's evil is another guy's tool to efficiently get the job done.

Sorry I don't have the time, luxury or interest in fighting the free software versus paid application game, open source versus proprietary software battle, Windows versus OS X, versus Linux, versus BSD, etc. madness.

I have a job to do and the flexibility, performance, dependability and reliability that Apple's products have provided me simply let me get done more easily and more quickly than other solutions.

Feel free to exercise your right to wage whatever religious war you want...fight the "evil" Jobs if you want, but who's next on your list?

Gates? Ellison? Narayen? Schmidt? Hope you have time to occasionally finish a project or two while you're slaying dragons, there's a bunch of evil capitalists, control freaks and downright mean guys and girls in technology. Me, I've finished the days work thanks to these industry leaders so I might as well go for a soda.

Well, without trying to be to dismissive or arrogant, I honestly think you would have to work 24/7 for a number of years to get close to the number of projects that I've finished. And no, I am still not impressed. You sound like you just discovered something that was there for a number of years?!

I can do more with my phone, then you can with your mac, and to top it, I do not have to say thank you to anyone of them. None of them gave me anything for free. But I do get royally pissed off when someone tries to tell me what I can and can't do with the things that I OWN, or what tools I can use, and such.
