Quote from: Seth on October 06, 2011, 12:35:28 pmI would have an iPad if it would have a USB port and would not cost so much money, so I have an Archos.I would have an iPod if the sound was very good and if I wouldn't need to install iTunes and such bad software to use it, so I have a SONY.I would have a Mac if I could play my games on it, and if it would not cost that much money, so I have a PC.I would have an iPhone, but I will never spend 600 Euros on a phone, so I have a Samsung.What is good in Apple ? 1- their design (definitely not from Steve Jobs, hu ?)2- their commercial politics (they have been able to sell useless, expensive stuff to people, by making them believe they will be different and will look smart and cool)3- their fanboys (always defending Apple products, worshipping Steve Jobs as the messiah, and allowing us, not fanboys, to have a good laugh on them)I am "sad" because Steve Jobs died and he was a clever guy, with inspiring speeches... and he has a family and all...But c'mon guys, look at the way Apple get their business done in China for example... and that is Steve Jobs responsability anyway...RIP Steve Jobs

Quote from: Tangled-Universe on October 09, 2011, 06:56:09 amFrank, I'm not sure if Franck considers every Apple user also an Apple Fanboy, it's not 1:1.That's my truth anyway if I speak for myself. I know plenty people, like you, who find good use and advantages using some Apple products over non-Apple products.However, in contrary to fanboys like my laboratory head chief, they do not try to convince you to use Apple-stuff, do not look down upon non-Apple products and don't blindly believe Apple invents everything (a bit similar to nowadays teenagers singing along covers of songs, of which they don't realize it actually is a cover).They're "just" making slick looking and especially very cleverly designed/chosen user-experience.

Quote from: Seth on October 10, 2011, 05:26:55 amI agree : he was great business man, and he took great decision for Apple.but that is all. he was not Einstein, nor Da Vinci.
Quote from: Seth on October 10, 2011, 05:26:55 amAnyway, don't get me wrong DD, I don't hate Steve Jobs, nor I love Bill Gates. I see that Mac can be great for 2D jobs for example. but well... I don't like the interface and even trying TG2 on a Mac was not as good as on PC from my experience.But as you said, I don't think I'll change my mind on PC?Mac subject nor on Steve Jobs (maybe on S.Jobs... but i really didn't enjoy using a mac)That said, you are right : I am not the authority on what constitutes right or wrong in consumer electronics. But I don't think you are neither.
Quote from: Seth on October 10, 2011, 05:26:55 amAnd that is not because a guy died, a guy I didn't even know personnally, that I don't even buy products from, that I will just cry outloud everywhere with everybody, faking sadness and telling everybody he was the best of us all... (see what I mean)Anyway...
QuoteI guarantee you, many of the products in your house, the very computer you render your TG scenes on, will have been made to some degree by cheap workers in China.
QuoteAnd calling it iCrap? Really? How old are you?
QuoteMuch of the information the media has on the labour issues at Foxconn, Wintek, etc. have been brought to light by Apple themselves through their 'Supplier responsibility reviews' which looks at the working conditions at these factories.
QuoteApple has also funded and launched training programs to avoid a repeat of the hiring of workers under the age of 16 (which is the minimum age in China btw).

QuoteYou could have just taken a higher moral stance and refrained from posting entirely.
QuoteThat's why you won't see me jumping into a thread like this thinking myself superior because I chose differently.
