Story time FJ.   
   
One of my friends at college has a brother who's pretty good at coding and all that crap. He did computer stuff at uni (I dunno the specific course title, something to do with software development)   
A few years ago (about 3 1/2 maybe) he was developing some Photo app code including stuff like face recognition, auto light balancing etc. He uploaded the app for beta testing to various websites, and it was all fine, and he got back results etc.   
Work continued on his coding, and he got to another good build of it, he uploaded it and a couple of days later received an email from Apple, saying he was using there copyrighted material and if he didn't stop, was going to be sued by them.   
   
He asked them what they were talking about and they said the code he used was copyright to them and was from an update to the iphone camera app they were planning.   
So he looked at the coding for there update, and in the build for the camera app from about a week after his beta was put up, there were new lines in it that were exactly the same as his, word for word in some sections.   
He messaged them back saying they stole his code from when he put up a beta of his app, and they replied basically saying they had an army of lawyers ready and they would rip him to pieces if he fought them over it.   
   
So he said 						****					 it, threw away his app and started helping develop jail breaks for the new IOS's, and sent them his code to jail break the IOS at the time and said "try and stop that", which they couldn't until about 5 OS patches later.   
   
So yeah, long story short, Apple are assholes.    
   
For reading all of that, have a gif of a funny dance.

eh, they may suck, but damn do they look sexy

"they look sexy"
For the price of a mac, I could buy an Alienware, which makes a mac look inconceivably bland and ugly. And might I add, operates a lot better than any mac you buy.

TL;DR A long post which compiles false rumours about apple products.

Oh how the internet loves to make up ******** about apple.
User avatar #18 to #10 - rampu (03/02/2013) [-]
The internet doesn't love to make up rumors about apple, The people that use it do. One of my personal favorites is "Apples are better than PCs" It's all a matter of opinion.

Apple is misleading and Steve Jobs is a cheat. The evidence: Steve Jobs dies sooner than Bill Gates.

Personally, the only thing apple does better than its competitors is marketing. its marketing department is PHENOMENAL, which is why apple products are sold at ludicrous prices despite being average, run-of-the-mill devices.

Hear hear. I got a Mac very recently because everyone and their grandma was telling me I had to get one for college. It was a nightmare, and I wound up spending way more money than I should. Buyer's remorse to this day. Currently on Boot Camp for Win7, never ever planning on going back to OSX.

What do you mean " two year life span"

My aunt still uses an i mac g3 and it is pretty reliable. Plus how much ram and hard disk space do you really need. Give me one instance when used more than 4gb at a time that was not running some high end game or graphic design software. Now i will admit many fair points have been raised. I do think apple in a legal sense, are some pretty big assholes, and they are having some trouble actually coming up with innovative ideas. The largest problem apple faces is that the devices are over priced ( lets face is if you dropped the average price of all macs down 20%, they would become so popular). However look at them compared to every other major electronic manufacture. Other than Samsung no one really has great ideas to compete against apple, And the argument about proprietary devices... Two things, one is that all laptops, All in Ones, tablets, and phones are proprietary, as each product has its own mainboard, specifically designed for that product, and the way RAM and the HDD or SDD interacts with it, is only found in that device. Second is that with the other statements said above, how many of those can you actually upgrade? How many of you, have added ram into an all in one pc, or have actually used more than one battery, or SD card in a phone. Really? You require more than one battery during the lifespan of your phone? Listen i know FJ is the PC master race, but for the love of god, it's a computer, an appliance. Look around you in the world, every appliance that is beautiful is more expensive. Ovens are more expensive than some, because of stainless steel. Mercedes-Benz and BMW are more expensive, but less powerful than cheaper fords, or Nissan's. Why? Because they are beautiful. Life is not about power it is about beauty.

TL;DR Many good points but some can be countered.

I am made from the highest god damn material. Don't come in here with this **** .

Actually the 30 pin was dropped for the Lightning(19 pin) so they could make the device thinner.

I really do wonder why people hate on apple so much sometimes, it's not like other companies haven't done most of this.

I still love my iPod touch
User avatar #15 - tastycrisps (03/02/2013) [+] (1 reply)
I have a mac and believe me, it was not by choice. It was a Christmas present from my dad(a supposed computer expert) that I did not ask for, and since I'm not a spoiled **** I couldn't complain. It sucks ass and only half the games I would like to play are compatible with it.

My younger brother just got his first computer and it was the newest version of windows. When I asked my dad why he got my brother the much better computer he said, and I quote. "Well he needs a computer thats good for games and stuff." I told him I was, and am, very into gaming and asked why I didn't get a windows and he said, again quoting, "You're a girl so I never thought you played games."

And people wonder why I hate my dad.

TL:DR: Macs suck, I have one.

Problem: Apple is **** .
Solution: Don't buy their products.

Nobody is forcing you to conform.

i'm getting a new phone soon... should i get android galaxy S or an iphone?

As someone who has never owned or used a mac on a regular basis, I was wondering how easy it really is to do things on it because to be honest i feel that if you can't do normal everyday tasks on a windows machine you probably shouldn't be on a computer at all.
TL;DR Don't see how mac's are so much easier to use than a computer with Windows.

but I can plug chords from other companies in my iPod

I have to agree to all the points.
BUT I must say that my MacBook Pro has been the only laptop I know that has been dropped form beds, chairs, benches, tables multiple times, hammered straight again, and still works.
Same for multiple iPods (didn't have to hammer them though). And for all the iPods without touchscreen there are Linux distributions available.

The only Apple product I've ever considered buying is the iPod Classic, simply because of the awesome space on it.
I currently have a 3GB MP3 player, and 3GB just isn't enough...

hard drive and ram is upgradable and does not void the warranty. Get the facts straight before you try to slander something.
User avatar #8 to #2 - thatguywhohasbacon (03/02/2013) [-]
Apple chooses when that does and doesn't void the warranty. Pretty much if it's not apple ram then your warranty is void. It did automatically void the warranty on some older macbooks though. This is from before steve jobs died so it may have been at that time when opening your macbook voided the warranty no matter what.
