Good to see the fanboys are out
I swear to god, no other company has quite the circle-jerk fanclub that Apple does.
It's probably one of the best marketing efforts ever conceived. They offer hardware and software that offers little real benefit over the competition, but SELL it as if it's some sort of lifestyle choice. You guys actually think that you're buying into something special, don't you?
And when people bring up the obvious comparisons of devices or software that offer more for the same (or even less) money - then it's a feature that "you didn't want anyway", or that would "just make it more complicated", or sometimes the classic response of "you just need to learn how to do it our way, even though it's fundamentally different from the way everyone else does it". Unbelievable.
The funny bit is that I actually own an iPod. Not that I use it much since the battery life sucks.
But hey, I can always buy another one, right?
