    • Is it just me or has smartphone tech gotten very intrusive? It listens in on your conversations, it scans fingerprints, retinas and now faces, presumably so they NSA can track you better.

      So Apple knows how to make a profit off of morons.

      Not exactly innovative.

      Long ago, Apple figured out that catering to Trevs would put them out of business.

      Trevs have not forgotten this.

      Apple manage to make itself into a fashion statement. Good on them for that. They can charge any amount of money for their devices, and the fashion-chasing plebs will sell themselves into debt to buy into the "image."

      The rest of us who actually use our devices for work buy Thinkpads and android phones, and laugh at the retards sitting in the window at Starbucks with ten facebook, youtube, instagram, and twitter tabs open on their (financed) $5000 MBP.

      :rolleyes: 0/10 you've been running this stupid troll for at least 3 years. Try a different angle.

      Quence is right. I've used both iphones and android phones and the iphones are clearly superior in so many different ways. It's just so obvious.

      That being said, $1000 for a phone is too much for me. I'll keep using my iphone 7 for another year or two.

      :rolleyes: :wave: Quencce.

      Ever notice how the Apple fantard crowd always goes on about how much better their devices are, but can never provide any specific examples of how exactly they are superior or what exactly they do better?

      God I am so glad I own an apple device. With my 24 year service contract and phone payment, it only costs me about $150/month.

      ;sjwfag;

      Yeah apple products sure are great!
      \
      ;fatfag;

      They're like, totally superior to anything else. So much better.

      :gayness:

      Totally. It's just SO obvious!
      \
      ;libfag;

      Absolutely the best! I can't imagine using anything else to listen to music, send text messages, change my facebook status, and look at youtube videos with. God I love Apple and I wish I could show Tim Cook my appreciation by allowing him to baste my face repeatedly with rope after rope of his potent delicious man gravy!

      As a matter of fact, yes. Windows and Android are low-maintenance solutions. I can count on one hand the hours I have spent in the last decade diddling with Windows or Android to get it working, and the vast majority of any issues I've experienced were actually caused by a rogue application or some other such fuckery that wasn't even part of the operating system to begin with.

      Linux can be a bit more finicky, but that is to be expected from something that is essentially a wannabe unix. That said, this isn't 1994 where you will need to go into config files to specify the bandwidth of your video card (and risk frying your machine if you get it wrong); plenty of distributions are perfectly reliable and easy to set up for non-technical users, i.e. Ubuntu, Mint, Manjaro, Lite, Deepin, elementary OS, Zorin, and others.

      Finally, consider something like this. There are literally thousands of videos showing Apple offerings being completely destroyed by Hackintosh setups. Not merely outperformed, but ***destroyed***. Here's one of many:



      Now ask yourself, if you can build a machine that will blow away a $5000+ Mac Pro for less than 20% of that price, how could you possibly justify the expense for the Mac Pro especially considering the facct your "Hackintosh" will be user serviceable while Apple products are moving further and further away from user-serviceability?

      Go ahead and laugh. We wont care. None of you poseurs ever use your macbooks for anything but FB/IG/Twitter/Youtube/Email etc anyway. It's not like you ever do any actual "work" with it.

      People like you are exactly the crowd netbooks were intended for. Instead of buying a practical tool that fits your level of use, you retards go all out on the credit card so you can be seen pretending to work on a machine you'll never use anywhere near it's full potential.

      As before, none of the board's Apple fanfags can break from their fantasies of fellating Tim Cook long enough to respond to evidence their beloved Apple's tech is overpriced crap that can be beaten by homebrew systems costing thousands less.

      ^^^ exactly what I'd expect from Apple's target demographic.

      Too dumb and lazy to look into the mysteries of assembling a computer even if it means saving over $4000 and ending up with a better computer.

      Best for you to stick with apple and leave the low-level tech stuff to those of us with three digit IQs.
