Cruising the internets tonight and I see this.
And, of course I clicked the link. Out of curiosity more than anything else. The link went to this post at CNet News by Tom Krazit. Good article that’s worth the read. Informative and all that.
Then I scrolled passed the ads, past the related posts and other meta at the bottom of the post to where the comments live. 2nd one is below.
>Believe it. It’s a “security” issue. Steve Jobs and his gang have committed so many acts of perjury and fraud, that they need maximum security now in order to protect them from getting legally served with even more lawsuits.
>Even when he does get served by courts, they somehow weasel him out of it and he is able to somehow not show up to court and get away with it.
>On another note, I am flabergasted by the sheer number of computer illiterates still out there.
>People, Apple is just a marketing company and that’s all.
>I am truly amazed that people buy these obsolete buggy iGarbage from apple…Hats off to their marketing department for conning and brainwashing so many idiots out there…But, I bought an HP iPaq for a couple of hundred dollars – it came with a phone, full featured GPS with voice directions, and oh yea a full Windows Mobile OS long before Crapple’s iPhone ever existed.
>And why would anyone pay over $3000 for a crippled, obsolete-out-of the box Apple Mac OS X computer? I bought an HP pavillion laptop, fully loaded, with DVD/Blue Ray, Super Hi-res wide screen, 2 Gig RAM, HD Tuner, built-in web cam etc. etc. etc. for under $1000
>And Apple Mac OS X is based on FreeBSD, an open-source Unix look-alike, available FREE for the PC back in 1992, with a artsy-fartsy GUI. Whoopy Doo..
>It is too expensive, too buggy, and the only software available is a bunch of dinky puzzles written by 14 year olds. No engineering or scientific applications available for “Mac OS X”…
>Apple has a long history of fraud, racism and corruption…Steve Jobs and Nancy Heinen (and her shyster subordinates) are both knowing criminal participants in the stock options scam, and were caught trying to cover it up.
>They were caught red-handed in early 2006 when a former employee who was cheated out of all of his stock after being wrongfully dismissed, filed a lawsuit against Apple Con-puter.
>In short, dont waste your time and money on apple…
>PS: If Apple was supposed to be “invulnerable” to viruses, why are there so many security fixes being passed around? Even with all of Apple’s virus and spyware vulnerabilities…which i’Tard would target a virus against an con-puter “OS” used by 2% of people out there?
At least this one is well written. But the hate and the ignorance, which translates into jealousy. Probably never used an iPod, iTunes or seen iPhoto.
It’s comments like these, and their ill-written brethren, that I just can’t stand.
