The world must really be coming to an end.

Apple, the tech company for uber geeks who have way too much money, a fixation for shiny coloured kit and a caffeine addiction that makes mine look sensible, is now worth more money than Microsoft.

Oh gods and goddesses, the iTards will never shut up now.

Geeks don't buy Macs. The uneducated do. They're the technological equivalent of "bling" - shiny, useless, and only make you look cool to other similarly retarded people.

How can you say that when the iPhone is so lovely and shiny and nice and cool?
Not forgetting the fact that Apple have sold over 30Million of these smartphones since last year, until it's published in Forbes (mind you thats not exactly accurate either :roll: ) i find it hard for Apple to superseed Mr Gates in the i've got more money than you game :wink:

Apple, mmmmmm. It makes my wee soldier go all hard.

I think Gates has spent the last 5 years or so actually giving his money away rather than raking it in.
Apparently he has manged to give away 38 billion of his own personal fortune so he must be down to his last 100 billion or so by now. He'll be on benefits next, poor chap.

Hmm, the brains involved in the BBC Business News department seem to be convinced that the Apple company is worth about four billion dollars or so more than Microsoft (the company - not Bill Gates' personal wealth) as of AM today.

So, as I said,

The world must really be coming to an end.

The US has also made Microsoft split up and sell off some divisions IIRC, Microsoft also make a greater profit and rely mainly on software, where as apple do both.

Looks like Dell want a piece of the Ipad action as well from the news.

An Uber geek friend of mine installed an Apple OS on to a hacked Dell laptop. That way he gets the hardware performance of a Dell and the software performance of a Mac. It's a bit unstable but it can do some quite cool things.

You don't need to be an uber geek to do that, surely? :)
You can get the Android Phone OS on desktop computers, if you try hard enough 8) .

You have to hack the BIOS to make it work properly.

What a frightening thread title?

I thought that the Coalition had offered the adulterous, pea-brained, barely literate or numerate thug Prescott a job!

If he ever upgrades, nudge him in my direction. I can do really cool things with Dells. They perform much better after being twatted with a hammer.

Nope, thank whatever god or goddess you believe in.

But that one-eyed Scottish idiot ex-prime minister Gordon Brown gave him a peerage, and that is bad enough, isn't it? :twisted:

there are several good reasons to buy Apple. For starters, the fine selection of the internal wow! look! a pigeon

Apple have 6.5% of the smartphone market, behind Blackberry (RIM) on 11% and Nokia with 52.8. Interestingly Berries are numero uno in the USA, with 41% of the domestic market. iPhones are for kids, real men use Blackberries.

ironically, the hardware performance of a decent macbook pro blows the nuts off a Dell.

the only advantage I can see to the above is the price.

I built a Hackintosh Hack Pro (mac pro in a PC box) for £800 with parts that, from apple, would have cost nearly £2500.
