PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "I decided to write this post after having too many heated discussions with many users across many blogs. After hearing repeatedly; 'The iPad will have a better display' or 'It sucks because it's not Retina' I figured it was time to break the argument down and dispel the 'Retina' myth." Fantastic post at The Verge.

What do you expect from the frothing at the mouth Apple fanbois? Must.... buy... more... Apple... stuff.


Reminds me very much of a product being launched by Apple and there was a reporter who was talking to customers waiting in line for it. In that line you saw a variety of responses but what I thought took the cake was the response by a lady who said, "I don't know what it is or what it does but it is from Apple so it must be incredible" (to paraphrase her). I don't know whether it says more about society in general or the Apple fanbase in general because at least from where I stand what I see is the Microsoft fanbase critical of Microsoft when they screw up but when it comes to the Apple fanbase what you year is a litany of "hold on' and 'it'll be fixed soon' and 'it's only a x.0 release so give it time' but funny how these same people never gave Microsoft the time to release a service pack.

Well, religions ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-13416272 ) don't need to be rational... ;)

Yeah, seen that in the past but I don't think we need a study to point out the blatantly obvious. I've never been able to work out the attachment so many people have to a particular operating system given that there is more to life to concerned about than having loyalty to one company over another but then again in NZ we have the Holden vs. Ford thing that has never mad any sense. Right now I'm checking out Windows 8 Pro RTM and to be perfectly honest I think Apple should be worried, very worried - we're not talking about the old Microsoft of 'lets throw the operating system at the OEM and hope for the best' because it appears based on the documentation that Microsoft is really involved with many of the OEM's out there to ensure that the experience is smooth from first boot up to every day usage.

Depending on how the finances work out at the end of the year I'm very tempted to jump ship to the Windows side - whilst the fanboys on the Mac side keep telling themselves that 'OpenGL 4.1 will come in the fall' and 'Tim Cook promised a Mac Pro refresh along with an iMac refresh' there are those of us who are seeing the writing on the wall and leaving :-)
