aent is ranting about why he doesn’t like Apple users. He has expressed his unhappiness with the company earlier, now it’s the Apple user’s bashing time. You can read his “rant here”:http://aent.blogspot.com/2005/01/why-i-hate-apple-users-who-dont-preach.html.
I’ll skip the part about Linux and GUIs which, for as far as I can see, doesn’t have to do anything with this. Then it’s the iPod Shuffle’s turn, something that I heard many Apple users complain about:
I think the shuffling excuse is kind of lame too. Many people do, including Apple users. However, I very much doubt that you can get a 1GB MP3 player for less that $149, at least I haven’t seen it. There may be a bit more competition for the 512MB one, but I’m not sure.
Just that they don’t include it in all of their products doesn’t mean they think it’s useless. If you fire up iTunes you’ll see there’s a radio thingie there at the playlist. Not that I ever used it, but that’s something else. Podcasting was basically invented for the iPod. Not entirely radio, but close. “Some people think Apple will go into the TV and movie business soon too”:http://www.pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/pulpit20050120.html. But ehm, what does this have to do with Apple users?
That’s nice. I can make up things like that. Hey, why doesn’t it have a camera? Or a coffee maker. What’s up with that? Stupid Apple. Oh no, wait, we were talking about Apple users, right?
Which DRM system should they have used, would you have prefered them to use Microsoft’s DRM? Oh, you want no DRM at all? Sorry, not going to happen.
aent, where do you get this stuff from? Are you recording everything that someone (who you suspect of Apple-lovin’) once said and fitted your “evil and stupid” profile and bluegh it all out at once? You whine about being called a troller. Let’s see. Only picking at bad stuff in people and companies, absurd generalizations (“so I’ll end my Apple discussion with this statement: Apple users annoy me.”), yep, sounds like trolling to me. Sorry.
