History repeating - as was the case with tablets. They were around for 10 years and no one was interested until Apple got into it and showed how it was done. The same thing happening again.

Then we'd be still waiting after 2000 years!
Other iOS browsers
I hav Opera on my iPad but I never use it, because I don't like the way it works. I do have these other alternative browsers: Terra, PerfectBrowser, and Mercury.
So if there are numerous web browsers on iOS, and there are not rendering the way Opera is, then why no Firefox of Chrome yet?
Re: Voodoo its all voodoo
It's not voodoo. It's only symbolic in nature, no one really takes it literally. Paying respects for ones ancestors helps shape who you are today and in the future. That is the way of Taoism.
Maybe late, but always seems to be better
Mac OS X may have been late to the 'party' for 64-bit, but in good Apple fashion, it was done right. Windows 7 supports up to 198GB memory. Why the artificial limitation? If it is truely 64-bit great as you think, it should be like Apple's Snow Leopard. which supported 16TB memory. Now we have Lion, with better security to finish off what is truely the worlds most advanced OS.
No sales were lost
The people who buy Galaxy are the same one's who say 'anything but Apple products' - so these are the people that are not in Apple's radar - no sales were lost.
Bing a foolish name
Ping is synonymous with networking. Where does the word Bing come from? Bing Crosby? Totally stupid.
For safety of data - Macs win out
If they did a study on which laptops you are less likely to lose your data, my guess is the Apple laptops will come out on top. PC's are vulnerable to viruses that attack the data. Also, all Apple laptops have motion detection to disconnect the head from the drive in the event of an abrupt jerk or falling motion - this prevents data loss or corruption of the drive. Also, the Apple laptops power cord has a magnetic lock which disconnects if someone trips over it.
Fring supports Skype on iPod
I've used Fring to use my Skype account on my iPod touch. Works nice, but I'm looking forward to using the Skype app, as Skype on Fring was buggy (to dial a local number I had to pretend it was out of country by dialing 011 then the number.
"Only one thing worse than rubbish dell non standard systems... is buying an even more proprietary system like a Mac. Even worse."
Makes me wonder what kind of car this guy drives? Maybe a Ford, the replacement parts are still the easiest to get, right?
Does he only use Linux and free stuff on his pc? The Mac OS is far more open and friendlier to open standards than is Windows.
"Hey, if we're taking facetious suspects, I'd put forward Apple and Microsoft, both of whom would prefer you stop using the elderly .mp3 format and moved to their ones instead"
Dunno about Microsoft, but the iTunes software from Apple supports MP3, you have a choice.
What's the point of stating "$2000 operating costs" as if that is something unique to an iPhone? Other smart phones will be just as much operating costs over a two year period - most will have more. If you have a gripe about being locked into a two year contract, then just say it - don't beat about the bush with hyperbole.
