    and there it is after all

    the nt os wouldn't exist if not for apple, a 64 bit wouldn't erxist if not for intels concentration on clock speed, a dual core wouldn't exist if not for competition between companies

    thank goodness for one upsmanship and competition

    Yep, completely biased me. :rolleyes:

    Note, the clip is regarding Zunes and iPods, not Macs.

    Mac = Apple = iPod

    or is that too far a stretch?

    ATTENTION - POSSIBLE THREAD HIJACK ;)


    I still havn't figured out why people pick a side. They both have benefits and costs.

    I certainly wouldn't be looking to run a server with Mac software. It has not been built for that purpose.

    I wouldn't recommend a Citrix solution if it doesn't fit the client's needs and budget.

    Personally I prefer a Windows build on my work laptop with several VMWARE instances of non-Windows Operating systems in order to support my client's servers. They have a few 'advantages' over Windows XP for some Wintel (Windows) solutions we support. I wouldn't recommend it, it's just, what I need.

    Anybody demonstrating a bias is simply an idiot. I'm saving right now to get a pretty mac laptop for the sig. other..... ... I'll start a thread to get recommendations when the savings account reaches it's desired level.

    Why? She thinks it's pretty. Good enough 4 me yo ! Plus, I get to play with it, and set it up. Woot.

    Those commercials suck. The Mac dude needs a serious beating IMO. Not for what he says mind you..... he just needs a whack or two.

    I don't think I'll fall for this Zune, I bought the new 4 gig model IPOD - why? it's tiny ! For my needs, it's perfect. See? NO BIAS PEOPLE.

    Fanboys suck, attempted HIJACK over. :)

    but presumably if you just share songs like that the RIMPAA monster will come looking for you and get the NRA monster to shoot your zune.

    That guy who's trying to put songs on the iPod needs to get his own machine and stop sponging off his friend ;) :p

    The iPod is an mp3 player, Macs are computers.
    Zunes aren't Windows are they? They're Microsoft.

    So yes, there is a difference, and it's too far a stretch.
