I’ve been using my Macbook for two week now and am very comfortable with it. While I’d never become a rabid Apple fanboi, this comment by Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer strikes me a simply assinine:
“Apple gained about one point, but now I think the tide has really turned back the other direction. The economy is helpful. Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment — same piece of hardware — paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that’s a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be.”
Um. No. Sure the logo is nice, but I’m willing to pay the $500 (an overestimate, by the way) for an OS that works seamlessly with the hardware and with the way I want to do things. In two weeks, I’ve had only one system crash and that was when I was running the Mac version of Powerpoint. Go figure.
