Haha! Glad I only have a touch. To people who do have an iphone/touch have you tried that "capsleer" app?
Yeah, it works fine. Really easy to set up too.
While a agree apple products can have some very good quality, but it really depends on your purpose. For most people something with a simple interface like a mac works great. For more technically inclined users though PC is the way to go. Personal preference though.
Uuuummmmm, unless you're going to follow that up with "technically inclined users though PC WITH LINUX is the way to go..." you're dead wrong. Windows is for my gramma that doesn't want to learn anything new. Linux is for those of us that want to do it ourselves and don't mind the rough edges. Mac is for those of us who simply want it to work.
Me? I'm a Linux nut - but I'd consider a Mac a ****ing huge step above any Windows "PC"... and the iphone is simply the best (personal) smartphone on the market as things stand. The Pre made some good strides in usability, but it still isn't quite there.
Woah, chill out a bit.
Windows, as a whole, is a much better platform for writing, testing and using applications as a whole due to its unparalleled driver and architecture support. Criticizing it as an OS because it has a tried and tested interface isn't a valid reason. Just because the base interface has been used for x amount of years doesn't make it bad in any way. It's efficient with the right learning, and it's simple without, two traits which make it very user-friendly, based on how much experience you have.
I'm not a PC Fanboy, or an Apple hater. I use an iTouch purely because it is the most versatile MP3 player out there. My mobile phone works fine as a telephone, and I don't need anything more, so why bother paying an extra ú10 a month for an iPhone contract, and the additional markup for the phone too?
Macs are different to PCs. Neither is 'better' in the UI department, same goes for Linux. They are each unique in function and design, and fulfill their niches nicely. It doesn't change the fact that Apple still believe they can charge a stupid markup for brushed aluminium casings, though. If they came down to earth they would get a lot more sales in the PC department.
As it is, anything you can do on a Mac you can do on a PC, usually for cheaper. The differences are irrelevant, as they are just that; differences. It's like comparing cats to dogs. They're both pets, but they're different in the way they act. I'm in no way saying that certain Mac products, such as the Mac Pro towers, aren't worth the money, it's just that you can, ultimately, build one with a Windows install for cheaper. There is no debate in that area.
