I'm very outspoken when it comes to being Anti-Apple. As desirable and cute as they are, cuteness would never replace functionality with me, and Apple isn't up to contentment in that department. Don't worry, this isn't your usual ti3gib-rants-about-apple entry, this time, as I was checking my inbox, I found an email from Apple titled "Upgrading to Vista? Think Mac."
Mmm, no thanks .. If I ever have a need for underspecified incompatible shiny garbage I'll give you a call my self. For now, I'm sticking to someone who's been and knows his way around the block.
We've always been impressed by what advertising scheme apple would bring out to the world next, and even though the crazy dancing silhouettes were getting old, no one was expecting that the new advertising strategy Apple was going to take will look like this. Weak, aggressive and hurt. Is Apple really going that low ? .. Spamming people (Gmail takes the blame for this one) and begging them into buying their products by falsely criticizing the competition ? That's just too below the belt even for Apple standards. The whole thing reminds me of the open criticism graphic-card giants ATI & nVidia took on after last year when both companies released sets of slideshows to unequally compare their products with the competitor's.
