i was considering buying an Apple because of the reputation of being 'the computer man's computer' but i had 2 Apple programs run on my Windows computer, Itunes/Ipod ...and something else...and i had nothing but freaking problems with both of them
(FYI i only used Itunes to get my Ipod running, then i went back to music theifing)
i thought "you know what? this is some amateur BS going on here"
after Steve Jobs died i watched the biography of Apple and i figured the whole thing out.
Bill Gates couldn't , by U.S. law, monopoloize the computer biz, so they set up Steve Jobs, who was nothing more than the schmo who was at the right place at the right time, with Apple as the opposition to Microsoft,
this why, when Apple went under, Bill gates was the one who bailed out the company.
