I guess it's also worth a mention that as a 20-year veteran developer, I prefer a linux/windows combination. It's been vastly more cost effective to use virtualized linux on custom-built desktops than it ever has been to use OSX. Apple hardware is expensive and underpowered, and the "looks" and "fit'n'finish" have zero bearing on me doing my job well. OSX itself is fine, but heavy, but it doesn't help me work in any particular way - the global menu is utterly idiotic and archaic, but at least they finally implemented proper dual screen support a few years back. Apple is stronger in the smartphone tablet department, but I've been seeing really strong stuff come from the android side of the camp lately. Apple seems to spend more time on transitions and effects and occasionally API polish, Android seems to spend more time on features.

Do you spend hours in line to buy the latest and greatest apple product every release cycle? If so, you are most definitely sheep. If you are capable of living your life until it's easier to get, then you are not sheep.

However, your reponse has nothing to do with the OP topic: The point is, Apple likes top stomp out competition by making it physically impossible to compete. This is even worse than microsoft's behavior in the past.

While not strictly true, if you follow the standard setup "workflow" as 95% of all computer do, you end up with icloud enabled.

I'd put $100 on all these celebrities just following setup instructions and ending up with icloud enabled, because they simply don't know better.

And yet, tablets as capable as the ipad for much cheaper abound. The iPad is still expensive.

And yet, the CEO of BlackBerry didn't exactly understand the cost of things, as the iphone was not the first touch-screen handheld.

And yet, Razer has created something more powerful than the MBP for less than the equivalently specced MBP. Also, Microsoft has released a piece of hardware specced like the Air, but with a high resolution display and a touchscreen, for less than the Air.

So, no.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
