Apple Mac Pro: It's a death star, not a nappy bin, OK?

Re: @AC - 2107967

I work in IT, just about every company has this level of support in business. None of it much different in price from Apple and most just as helpful.

Apple stores getting close to overload

Mick F

Really really

Happy to take a photograph any day of the week. The staff are easily identified as they are in the majority.

Even on a Saturday it's not "busy".

The Salisbury reseller has more staff than costumers. Pass it every day watching them busy doing nothing.

Fanboi primer: How to move your iTunes from PC to Mac

Mick F

Wonderful but...

I need the opposite "primer". Want to move my iTunes library back to my PC.

Got rid of my Mini (crap machines) and will be getting rid of my MBP in the coming months. Tried Apple and happily moved back.

Android phone auto reverts jailbreaks

Mick F

@skeptical

I have a developer friend who made the mistake of getting an iPhone. Once he realised the massive limitations inflicted by Apple he hated the phone - until he he jailbroke it and was allowed to set it up how he wanted (and not just pages of icons).

I agree iPhones for the iDiots.

Repair Costs

My problem with Mac's is the repair cost outside of warranty, may as well just throw it away.

My MBP has a dodgy "superdrive", Apple wanted over £250 to repair it. The drive (which they won't sell separate) can be purchased for around £50.

Won't get fooled again.

Apple gives MobileMe a makeover

Mick F
Thumb Down

Usual overpricing

If you are mental enough to pay for Mobileme then it can easily be picked up for £40 on ebay - but still, the question is why would you bother at those over inflated prices.

I did use it for a year but there are better alternatives for free and I didn't see the need to keep funding Steve's stylish outfit's.

Can be hard to beat the old model

The old model overheated and was poorly designed to stop people upgrading themselves. The internal power supply is still a massive mistake.

Apple leaves profits on table for 'huge' iPad future

Mick F
Terminator

The age of steel dawns

"We have several more extraordinary products in the pipeline for this year," Mr Jobs added, who also owns Cybus Industries.

EarPods, used extensively in the place of MP3 players and mobile phones, allowing information to be directly downloaded into people's heads.

An upgrade to humanity and the ultimate move into cyberspace, allowing the brain to survive in an ageless steel body? Delete all those deemed incompatible with the upgrade.

HTC Desire

Mick F

best geek phone? yes

Interest in the iDon't is stumbling and it is not a geek phone - it is only a fashion accessory.

The great thing about Android - no Apple thought police!!! No lock in to iTunes and a simple setting to be able to install what you want from wherever you want.

Get fed up with the look & feel of the OS then it is simple to root & replace with a different developers ROM, not just stuck with the same tired interface with lots of pages of icons and iAd's to make things worse.

I'll buy a pad one day - but it will have Android on and, like the phones, will be dominating Apple in a very short space of time.

Android app brings in $13K a month

Mick F

Even more people would pay for apps if Google would allow them to???

There are more ways to install apps than just the market place. You can install whatever you want from whatever source. This is not Apple crap!!!

Try SlideME, GetJar or Handago.
