Every single Apple product has a built in "Screw you!" designed to make you spend more money. The iPod? Non-replaceable battery and only works with iTunes. iTunes? It used to be DRM-only, and Apple only changed due to competition. The iPhone? Liquid sensors on the OUTSIDE that can be triggered by sweaty hands, so they can use it as an excuse to invalidate the warranty. The iPhone is also locked to a particular carrier and the Apple App Store (in other words, they TELL you what to think). Apple computers? They charge for OS upgrades that are nothing more than glorified service packs. You have to PAY for the OS support you should have got when you bought the OS or system. Apple notebooks, specifically? They're unibody all-metal construction that dents and warps if the machine is bumped against something or dropped from even a short distance, a distance that a normal plastic and metal-framed laptop could easily handle. They then use this visible damage to invalidate your warranty when something completely unrelated breaks (I have a good friend who had this very thing happen).

And yet, after all of this, people still buy their overpriced garbage? Apple users are sheep, and Apple is the perverted sheperd. People need to wake up and stop being sheepshagged.

Narrow minded people are narrow minded.

Apple makes some of the best machines on the planet...anyone in film or photography uses apple products because they are superior to a pc...PC are great for people who play games, and they make a better server platform but other than that a PC has nothing on an apple product...they are cheaper but you get what you pay for.

Where are the Sensore on the iphone? Im looking at mine right now...

I also believed that i can have any carrier i was on my iphone. Do I not have to unlocck every other phone to use it with other providers? Or wait do your reserch and wait for the 4g to come out to multiple companys.

Now, if you said they delete your appstore accout if they find out you jailbroke it, id uderstand that. your argument sucks.

Something's up...less than 100 bucks for an iphone (with shizzly AT&T service plan)

My guess: New iphone is coming out...or they're going to open it up to other service providers and are trying to tie up as many people as possible into AT&T before they do.

I have no idea what hes talking, there is one sensor and its inside the headphone jack...it also wont go off unless its completely submerged in water.

we don't have a lot of apple products, we got an ipod nano at a garage sale for a $1...it works and never had any problems with it.

Same thing happened last year when the 3GS was approaching market, which incidentally is how I got my 3G. No foolies, if you wanna buy an iPhone now's the time.

my girlfriend got her iphone for like $54 (refurbished) around christmas time. most of the time they are so cheap because you're renewing your services at the same time. Kinda like how a droid cost $550 new, but with a two year plan it is buy one get one free at $199.

Her phone is pretty much perfect for being a refurb, even came with the packaging like it was a totally new phone. i couldnt find any defects making me think it was ever in anyone elses sweaty palms.

Well, the big conference/show that Apple ALWAYS announces something big at is coming up in a couple weeks right? 3G iPhones dropping to $100 pretty much seals the new announcement as 4G iPhone...hopefully open to other providers. If I could get Verizon service with an iPhone, I might hate it less and actually get one. If it was cheaper than the Droid...and could run multiple applications at the same time. Yes, I said applications. I hate the word 'Apps'. 'Apps' are kitchen short-hand for 'Appetizers'. You say it runs 'Apps' to me and I'm thinking it's a friggin' waiter that only takes out Nachos and Salads :)

3.1.3 Jailbreak PM me if u need help. :D



Also my mom has a mac, i love it but...

*Disclaimer my mom is not a computer person, like one of those people who break things by touching it. and her computer a mac book pro is 3 years old.

1) we got it, and it didnt have the latest os on it. im not an apple person so im going to say it was tiger pre-installed and we had ordered one with leopard. not that big a deal they sent us a disk. still a but inconvient
2) after a year the charger would only work half the time
3) a year later the screen stopped working, so that was a pain. Brought it to the techs, apples "genius" bar they said it was the logic board. So it had to be sent out to texas to be fixed. We got it backed, but unfortunately someone had whipped the hard drive. Why? i dont know and neither did the people at the genuis bar. I get that it cud just be standard procedure, but remember this is my moms mac, she was the one who brought it in. and if u ever talk to her about computers at all u would know she doesnt know anything about them ( its 3 years now and she still calls me in to ask how to put photoshop in her dock cause she accidentally removed it.) they should have told her. so basically 2 years of my moms graphic design work gone, thankfully she backed a lot up on cds.
4) currently the battery holds a 6 min charge and then dies. so we have to keep it plugged in.

Final thoughts
1) the mail app is a #$%^& and doesnt play nice at all.
2) ive had some issues with the wifi, fixed though with a new router.
3) get the three warranty, its worth it, i would hate to have seen the cost of the above w/o it.
4) the mac when i use it seems to run fine and fast.
5) Genuis bar = not helpful in my opinion


Also i had an 80 gb video for like 4 years, i loved that thing, and probally took more abuse then my paintball gear and still kept playing. Now i have an itouch (which i love) as my video finally broke :( I actually would have gotten the zune but it had no 64 gig version at the time and i have excessive music collections.

And a final note on apple

They try to project to be the everyday persons computer, but then be the oppisite. their expensive and really not that customizable. their mostly found at design and grahics companies. so those go at odds. And watching my mom as someone whos come back to computers after 20+ years i would say the way they organize the os is more confusing for new people then a windows.

PS who ever said that macs are better for graphics and stuff then pcs. well ur right in a way. Macs run for a higher price, if i took the money i wud have spent on a mac and put it into making a pc they wud even out on the graphics side a lot more.

june is pretty much apple's release month i think.

i doubt much exciting will come out really, probably more stuff for the ipad and another iphone which will be just like the last with a new case and a few new shortcuts which the phone should have had in the first place.


but there were rumors of a switch to more carriers, but then again, when arent there?

All the problems with stuff breaking and costing money to fix happens all the time with PCs as well stupid people work for Apple and stupid people work for IBM, Dell, HP all those companies.

On the comment with spending the money on a mac and making a PC I can tell you first hand its not true. My dad owns a production company and in the last year or two they bought their first PC based editing system for a reason I dont know, but I think it had to do with the "more bang for buck" factor. Well the guy who ended up shopping for it and assembling it was very good with computers, overall the components in it were superior compared to their current apple based systems. Long story short its terrible, it would lag all the time and it just couldnt handle multiple programs running at once. I think they eventually just parted it out and made computers for secretaries because it was costing them more money in delays that it would have been to keep using it.

What exactly does the jailbreak do? Does it make it so you don't have to use iTunes or something? I don't own an Ipod, though I am looking at a replacement for my Zune, and I do use Zune Music Pass so I want to keep using it if I can.
