Lol this iPhone 4s thread is becoming a pc Mac thread?
As a Mac user myself, it is true I still use Windows, for some particular reasons such as M$ Office is better in Windows, M$ PM, M$ Visio and VMWare infrastructure client for administration of VMWare systems.
Basic functionalities such as listening to music, watching of HD videos, surfing net, VoiP conferencing, and so forth are very much, if not better, just as good as the M$ Windows. If it's about basic users jumping the ship, what APple has to offer is a much better option for hassle free usage.
If today it's about games, yes I pretty much agree Windows still have an edge over, seriously not because Windows is better, but because of the R&D cost invested in the 3D engines that are already written for M$ platform. Also for this industry, performance is their KPI. It's much easier to squeeze performance on a platform they have understood for years, than to move into a new platform with different API and different optimization required.

More and more people buy mac to change to windows nowadays. Apple earns the money from the hardware, while windows only earn from the software. That's not even true all the time. People work around things just like how we download installous. Soon Apple will earn more money (don't forget about iPhone revenue) and they can develop more. One day, Apple will take over Windows just coz windows can't sell as many hardwares as the past. If Windows doesn't comes up with some genius stuff soon... I don't know? Maybe tomorrow see headlines "Windows releases holographic display system with an ultra-affordable price"Originally Posted by JillValentine

There again, I have to agree with all those effort tackle at the 20% problem, these fellas often end up as elites that may very well surpass those that did not. So it's a cost versus experience issue. But as we get older and more experience, we tend to learn and figure out that it's more worthy to spend your time on things that you may have neglected in the past because you are too focus on a particular issue.
Way of Life I guess
my potato chips finished already, have to buy more and continue reading this thread.
Now that Microsoft is so much behind Google Android and Apple IOS, I'm also interested to see how Microsoft intend to turn the table. Perhaps it is just another Vista to be born.
[QUOTE=David Kwok;7494132]Where is the R&D cost ? R&D isn't cheap. It's intangible yet it cost way more than your product. How about the cost to hire some of the best engineers, designers, consultants that rope together and deliver the product that you see today ? How about the cost to bring you upgrades and new features in both software and hardware almost every yearly ? I don't see a lot of companies able to deliver that this kind of rate ? Again cost.
Thank you for the long story.
I have read all the "alleged" reasons, only you gave me nowhere explains why Apple pays extreme poverty wages.
Your story is a cheap, cynical excuse, that Apple has the right to pay starvation wages and treat workers like slaves.
A point pervers: the product that these workers for a pittance produce, exactly this product attract others to buy it for show off.
do you know, that many workers in the Apple factory have killed himself.
they were jumping from the factory-window to their deaths.
do you know where the profit - billions dollars - go!!!
But if I may remind you, where are you from ? As in your true identity whereabouts. Look at all those merchandize you own. If you are a Chinese from China, then I highly recommend you place your question somewhere else before this discussion turns political. If you are not a Chinese from China, then please review on what you are spending everyday and also what you own at home are Made in China, before you indulge in this topic.
I highly recommend you read the T&C found at http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/faq.p...q_new_faq_item before you proceed further.

You may not like Apple (I don't particularly like corporate Apple, though I've used Macs for two decades), but at least get the facts right.
Incidentally, do you happen to know how much a Swatch watch costs to make, or designer label clothes? How about Android handsets? If you don't like modern capitalism, take it up in another discussion, this is seriously OT in this thread.

What is a company's "right"? Should it pay the lowest wages because it can? Does it have the responsibility to be a good corporate citizen, or just to earn maximum profits?
It's not at all an easy question. Apple is a company that survives mostly on its marketing prowess. Other such companies (Coke, Nike) have all come under attack for 'exploitation' in recent times, when really all they did was pay prevailing market rates in developing countries. For Apple, the problem may be worse, since it thrives on an image of 'cool', and most people don't think cheap developing country labour is cool.
I will buy one 4S to show my support to Steve jobs - RIPOriginally Posted by digitalpimp
