Apple-Fi (Mac's, iPhone's, All Thing Apple) - Page 2

post #16 of 43

I bought an iPod touch 3rd gen over 3 years ago when I was just starting a music collection, but as great at it is, my music has long since outgrown the measly 8 GB capacity (that doesn't even include my apps), and is growing faster than ever after I learned about the lossless file formats. Which one of the newer iDevices would be an upgrade, sound quality and storage wise?

1st generation MacBook Pro Retina Display, 1st generation aluminium unibody MacBook, iPhone 4S, and iPod Touch 2G MC owner here.

 

One thing I don't like about Apple and [Mac] OS X is their...issues with Java. Does this website run for you guys who use [Mac] OS X?

One thing I do like about Apple and [Mac] OS X is their gestures. I have yet to see smooth, easy-to-use gestures in Windows as even the ones in Windows 8 are pretty non-intuitive to me.

This app is a godsend for custom Trackpad gestures:

Yep, I LOVE the silky smooth gesturing on my Mac.

 

It's HILARIOUS how the majority of Mac users(common folk) don't have it configured in any way shape or form.

 

I have Mac users ooohing and ahhhing when I do my gestures.

Probably because you're used to OSX. That and Macs tend to have better quality touchpads.

I'm pretty used to the Win 8 gestures, and subconsciously end up trying to use them in Android and getting frustrated.

I was trying out Windows 8 gestures at a local Microsoft Store for an hour yesterday, getting guidance from friend of mine whom I've known since high school. The gestures aren't bad, but they're non-intuitive to me and it'll take more than an hour's time for me to get used to them. But that's the thing, they're touch controls, whereas in OS X they're gestures on a trackpad. Some Windows 8-compatible laptops have such gestures available on the touchpads, but they're really slow and not very practical from what I've experienced.

Kind of disappointed in OSX, but it has some notable features. Looking forward to maps on OSX. 

More to come I guess.

Great thread!  

 

Laptop:  MBAir My main music player, movie player and constant companion.

 

iPods:   5.5 Rockboxed

I've owned Dell laptops and currently using a HP desk (home) and Dell desk (work).  Various mp3 players that are unusable.

 

IOS is simply a better operating system. If I have issues on my computer the Apple is so intuitive I know I can figure it out.  Windows Vista and 7 are insanely complex each time Windows updates they seem to get more dense and complicated.  

Apple maps and Siri are a mistake that Jobs would never have allowed.  I hope that Apple gets its act together and puts out more quality products.

Here's something for all those who complain about Foxconn

 

"The suicide rate at Foxconn during the suicide spate remained lower than that of the general Chinese population[8] as well as all 50 states in the United States.[9] Additionally the Foxconn deaths may have been a product of economic conditions external to the company. In China in 2010 there were several major strike actions at other high-profile manufacturers in China, and the Lewisian turning-point is a macro-economic factor that may provide context for the events.[10]"

 

 

Foxconn also supplies:Dell, HP, Nokia, Motorola, Sony and Nintendo

The whole Foxconn thing is way overblown. The workers who work there often have a higher quality of life while working at Foxconn than they would where they originally came from (most likely the rural parts of China).

 

It's all just for publicity that it's so widely known. Foxconn has higher standards and working conditions compared to pretty much any other manufacturing plant in Shenzhen, yet no one else around the world cares about them; only Foxconn this, Foxconn that, oh Apple what have you done? save the people at Foxconn.
