Honestly, how many people (of all computers users) actually use that piece of junk? [Refering to the Tablet PC]
Now now do I smell a jealous little Apple fan? I'm sure there are tens of thousands of Tablet PC users that would like to comment on this on his blog, yet he seems not to have comments or trackbacks... Hmm like so many Apple fans stuck in their own little world.
The Tablet PC is easily the most innovative thing to happen in computing for the last 5 years. Leaving Apple in the dust. You just know this guy would buy an Apple Tablet instantly if they had one available and he'd soon change his tune. Nobody I've shown my Tablet PC to have been able to resist just how cool and innovative they are how natural and easy they are to use, most have said out right they'll never buy another laptop again.
Just to briefly touch what else he says:
A cell phone is a cell phone is a cell phone. There is no real difference or need for it to do anything but make calls and save phone numbers, and maybe a calendar.
Yeah ok - whatever. Sorry I'd rather not carry around 4 or 5 different specific devices, I'd rather just have one. My Smartphone. With all my music, TV, videos, games, internet, everything I could possibly want when I'm out and about. If we play it your way you'd be carrying a ruck sack full of devices around with you everywhere.
Yes, Macs will soon be shipping on Intel, and haven't yet, but that's because up until now the chips that IBM have been making are better
Right, welcome to fantasy island.
This whole uproar in the Apple community started because Robert Scoble threw up a rebuttal to the fan-site MacDailyNews:
"Microsoft's Windows 'Vista' promises similar features to Apple's already-shipping Mac OS X."
Yeah right, Apple can't even match the killer feature sets Windows generally has had over the last few years, let alone what they have coming in Vista. His post is so good I'll rip the whole thing.
I didn't realize there's a Tablet Mac already shipping (is there a Mac that you can carry around and use a pen with?). Ours is already shipping, don't need to wait for Vista.
I didn't realize there's a Media Center Mac already shipping (is there a Mac with a TV tuner built in so you can do Tivo-like stuff?). Ours is already shipping, don't need to wait for Vista.
I didn't realize that there's a Mac phone that integrates with the Mac OS already shipping (is there a Mac SmartPhone phone equivalent already shipping?). Ours is already shipping, no need to wait for Vista.
I didn't realize that there's a Mac shipping that runs on Intel (there will be soon, yes, but I didn't realize it was shipping already!).
I didn't realize that there's a Mac shipping that'll integrate with the Xbox. Ours is already shipping, no need to wait for Vista.
I didn't realize that there's a Mac shipping that has integration with MSN Direct Watches. Ours is already shipping, no need to wait for Vista.
Wow, where do I get a Mac that does all that?
The really funny thing is as you can see in his comments, this completely went right over the heads of the Apple fanbase, no you're right he's not comparing Mac OS X to Windows Vista, he's showing that Mac OS X isn't anywhere near the level of Windows XP. Microsoft don't need Vista to compete with OS X their 4 year old OS blows it away.
