Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about! Apple
What's Wrong With Apples?

"They're just not real computers," the PFY says. "They're the piano accordion of the computing world, entertaining, but not made for professionals."

"Our Graphics people..."

"Yeah, but they're not professionals. They'd be just as happy with crayons and finger paints!"

Apple FanBoys Are Ready to Revolt
From Customers Ask: Is Apple Going Rotten? Five big complaints are stirring up against the "Golden God's" great product line. Of course the $200 iPhone price drop. Video accessories no longer work on the new models. You have to re-purchase all your games. Touch screen is flawed, and they knew it. Pay a second time for ring-tones. But over the past two weeks, Apple's fans have been grumbling that the company they knew and loved is transforming into another Microsoft, making short-sighted, anti-consumer ......

Steve Jobs - The Puppet Master
Cringely has the best summation of this week's iPhone fiasco I have seen yet. It wasn’t an accident. It wasn’t a thoughtless mistake. It was a calculated and tightly scripted exercise in marketing and ego gratification. So why did he do it? Why did he cut the price? I have no inside information here, but it seems pretty obvious to me: Apple introduced the iPhone at $599 to milk the early adopters and somewhat limit demand then dropped the price to $399 (the REAL price) to stimulate demand now that ......

Apple Force Installs iTunes
So imagine Microsoft releases a new patch for Windows Media Player. You install it and now you have the Zune software. How many people do you think would be pissed about that? When I setup my desktop last week I didn't install iTunes because I don't really have a need for it. But I did install QuickTime and Apple Software Update. This morning Apple software update kicked in and wants to install iTunes + QuickTime to patch iTunes which doesn't exist on my computer. So I thought I would let it update ......

iPhone Commercial (Video)

Reminds me of the Microsoft Surface parody commercial. (Some bad language.)

The iPhone and Apple Fanboy Logic
Jim Lynch provides 9 very good reasons not to by an iPhone: Too Expensive Tiny Storage Stylish and Stupid Stuck with AT&T Edge and Not 3G No Flash or Java Support Two Year Contract and $175 Termination Fee No Keyboard Crapfari Instead of Firefox Those are all valid. When you think about the iPhone, what you are getting is a shiny interface, cool factor, a widescreen iPod (arguably the single reason to buy one), and one device instead of two if you are an iPod owner. What Jim forgot is battery ......
