Appleinsider is reporting that the 32gig zune could be as much as 100 dollars less then the 32gig touch. This could be good news even for MS haters like Tom. Though the zune takes very little market share, this could be enough to push apple into lowering the price of the touch..good news all

Not true at all. They buy guns by the dozen, legally (because it is so easy in VA) and then sell them in DC (illegally). Why should they bother to do something illegally when it is so easy to do in legally? I thought we weren't going to have this discussion?

If you check the Wild List you will see that there are 100s of active, circulating viruses that can attack Windows and we have to add anti-virus software to watch for them. Tom likes this metric because it says what he wants it to say. It has no real meaning, but oo, is it scary sounding.

Except this isn't true. You constantly talk derisively about the people you are supposed to support and save the greater portion on your spleen for those who are best able to do their work with Macs. That is what makes it an issue. I don't think I've ever known anyone with such a strong

With 65,000 apps available for the iPhone and less than a dozen for the competitors it is going to be very hard to catch up. The competitors are still making some of the mistakes Apple made in its early days and they will need to fix those first. Right now Apple appears to be its own worst

Good example. Imperial IT management always assumes that they know how to do everybody's job better than the people who were hired to do the job. Tom is certified by the National Association of Petulance. He knows what he's talking about. I would love to see Tom's client list one day. I

That's funny. Every time my MacBook updates, it tells me I've got to shut down. No choice in the matter, whether I want to do it now, or wait 'till later. I can't find the Start Button, so it *must* be OSX. Tom also never moves off of v. 1.0 of his applications. Those later versions are just

This discussion is pretty much pure speculation but: The iPhone wasn't just first, it was about a generation and a half ahead. Given Apple's history of innovation it's more likely that they will innovate again than drop from popularity. You'll notice that first was in quotes in my post. Very

There are two ways to handle budget problems. Therein lies your problem: a total and complete lack of vision. The real world isn't binary. I'll leave it to our sad sack WFBs to struggle with doing less with less. We do just fine, since we don't have to pay the Apple tax.
