Rikkun, his comment clearly shows the lack of time spent with a Mac. And when I say lack of. I mean having a PERSONAL Mac that has been used extensively for a month. But with Rikkun, I expect that even if he does that , he will still like Linux better, but at the very least, there won't be comments on how he can't find anything or what the hell is going on with t.

Numbers will vary between users (obviously) so it isn't the most exact result. You might be able to get an average but I don't feel like that's good enough. (I'm tired right now and can't think straight so just ignore this)

 

I know it does. I've use a Mac for a full month at summer camp (it was one of those old white Macbooks though but it was still OS X) and I didn't really like it. We basically used it all day for the entire day.

Seriously. If they had partnered with other dev, they's get A LOT of loyalties

 

I'd like to try a Mac, but trying a Hackintosh is the first step (at least get a feel)

But to get the original Mac is soo darn expensive

 

 

Anime song? Not the kind that I enjoy as normal listening. Good composition btw

You are basing this off no evidence that they should be a software company. They get MORE patents and awards for hardware and design actually. And guess what, they are good at both hardware and software, how to sell them and how to control it. They learned this after almost dying

As a math and statistcal guy, schooling has showed me that it is VERY accurate, using proofs of math that have been developed to take a small sample size and very accurately show that the near exact result is. Marketing people can get numbers on how effective something is before even putting it out usually for example.

 

And then there are the tech people, like I said before, you won't love it after spending amonth with it, but at the very least, you won't be saying that you can't find anything as the system sucks

Say panda, is this the adapter you were talking about

http://venturebeat.com/2010/02/08/an-sd-memory-card-adapter-for-your-iphone/

 

Can an iPod with this plugged in play mp3s on the sd card?  Can't imagine I'd want to lug an ipod around with that sticking out of its behind though

Care to point us to one of these very accurate statistical studies?  Proving that properly conducted statistical studies can be very accurate is not the same as saying that gathering hearsay on the internet is an accurate gauge of anything

....Google. Consumer reports and others have done them. Apple is pretty high up on the scale, there are many different studies from different people so numbers vary but in terms of number of Computers out there

 

They are conducted using a large sample size of people

Consumer Reports on Wednesday put out a big survey of thousands of desktop users and found that Apple’s(AAPL) desktops were the least likely to need serious repairs. According to the survey, just 7% of Apple desktop users reported having major repair needs for their machines, followed by 10% of HP (HPQ) desktop owners, 11% of Dell (DELL) desktop users and 13% of Gateway users. Consumer Reports says it conducted its survey by asking “readers who bought 8,007 desktops from 2009 through the first half of 2012 about their experiences.”

This is just one conducted by Consumer Reports

 

 

Another one has Samsung, and Lenovo being more reliable. 

 

There is that adapter as well as an official iPad one.

I can believe that apple computers are more reliable hardware-wise, but I would be more interested in software-problem related statistics, but I'm having trouble imagining a study that can gauge that.  Number of support calls to apple vs microsoft per licensed user?  We hear plenty of grudges about windows software but that could also be due to the larger windows userbase on the one hand and the prouder Mac userbase on the other hand less likely to report problems.

 

I thought the sad Mac and the bomb screen were pretty darn hilarious too...

They already have, problems people in a sample group have with software releated problems in the first 6 months and then year are the ones consumer reports also does. This is more of a software thing so of course Apple tops the list with Samsung and ASUS taking up next places generally.

 

Apple used to have a OVERWHELMINGLY majority on the calls and issues done but it has gone down a bit in recent year(not years lol) as they are getting massive influxes of people using their products now. They are still in the top last I checked though.

 

Report problems? Most Mac users are consumers or professionals...THEY MAKE IT KNOWN  haha. And often times they have worser questions than others. People like me that get both PC's Mac's are not as much as you may think...most seperate into one group..and if you know much about computers, most seperate into the PC Enthusiast group.
