...on the Internet.

Remember, people in the real world don't give a crap about any of this for the most part. We forum goers, redditors, 4channers, etc. don't count as being the general population. :p


Actually you are somewhat right--

The general public just wonders "When is the next Iphone coming out. and what new wonderful features it will have."

You mean like the App store? Every customer I've shown that's new to Macs loves the idea. I personally like it as well, though being on Windows, it's sort of a joke with the current app quality right now, but that's whole 'nother story.


Apps in Windows 8? You mean like all my games, Steam, VLC, VM Ware, FML encoder, Winamp, MediaEspresso, Handbrake etc? OS X doesn't have the "apps" that windows has. I doubt it ever will.

I think he meant the quality of apps currently in the Windows App store.
And there are OSX versions of Steam, VLC, VM Ware, Winamp and Handbrake.

I am fast losing faith in Apple. OSX 10.8 bought slowdowns in favour of iOS features, which I don't get.

The new iMacs have got both slower HDDs (21") than previous models and less ram slots (21") than previous models, while costing $100 more.

The iPhone 5 is just another iPhone. An awesome phone sure, but it's all been seen before by last years model.

In short Apple need to re-evaluate what they are doing to their software.


You mean like what Jonathan Ive is doing on iOS 7?

Please, do tell us. What exactly is he doing besides implementing WP8 ideas?

The next few years should be pretty interesting for Apple. Steve Jobs passed at a real interesting time for computing with the shift towards more mobile centric UI. I would like to see Apple focus more on OS X and the desktop side again, however at the same time, OS X is pretty darn perfect and feature complete. I don't see what more they can add to it with out some serious changes. I believe Johnny Ives will bring a new fresh look to iOS which will also translate to OS X.
