Apple,Mac & all that Jazz

category: offtopic [glöplog]
Too long since ranting...doing this only for Hyde and myself(coz it irritates me)

why is apple at some listings more worth than both GE and Microsoft?
What would happen if Apple stopped excisting today? Contra if Microsoft or say Oracle would stop to excist?
What if GM/GE ended, and Apple ended? What would make the most damage to the world?

Do any of you who actually do "real work that actually makes money to your state" use Mac?

I don´t understand that a company built on "toys", music and silly apps can be more worth than f.i oil companies with trilions of billions of worth of future income and bilions of dollars in technology and equipment.

and dont get me started on facebook...WTFFFFUUUCK???

ohh well, some lists show Walmart as the biggest company in the world, so maybe im wrong.


yeah, Im drunk, and I love it :D

Apple = mainly consumer electronics, amongst other things
Microsoft = mainly business software developing, amongst other things

You're comparing tomatoes with cookies. Both have one thing in common, they can be eaten.

So, you went at a party and the dj used a mac or what? xD

My point about Apple, I know a lot of creative people who don't want to bother much with computers and especially musicians. Here are some reasons they love their macbooks:

1/ Apple introduced firewire and most gears, back some years ago, were more efficient using firewire port and so far, I and friends never had to complain about macbook firewire... it's not the case with some pc laptop (or, maybe it changed, back in some years, it was a pain in my ass I recall)
3/ macOS comes with several applications for dealing with midi gears.
4/ some major applications are on macOS (Logic?)
5/ you look well cooler than if you had an acer, you can't deny it.

android application needs libzip to load a file from the .apk that is the executable, when using native code. it's a shame that thing couldn't be simplier. when I've code my pinball for iPhone or iPad, I do not encounter such a problem, except to retrieve the directory of my application.

knl: Proffessional notebooks like Thinkpads or Latitudes (which you normally can't buy in a store where washing mashines are sold.) look still more proffessional than a toy. You can't deny it either. ;-)

Tft, all the hip'n'trendy silicon valley tech startups use macs. Also, i was at a CouchDB training last april and I was the *only* guy on Windows. They hadn't even tested the course material on Windows (curl commands that didnt work on cmd.exe because cmd.exe is borked). At BigCorp though, indeed, not many macs I guess.

Jazz: Nice to know :)
Maybe I can get a mod or 2 when its time to do a new RNO Musicdisk :)

Also, you should hop on board with the musicdisk project by TDK and a bunch of people. Seems promising.

Exin: I, and many other musicians, don't care about pro or not pro. They want it reliable and straight to the point... the point being: make music.

This message was sent from an iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, Mac mini, iMac. It would have been impossible to deliver such a cool message from a non-Apple device. Bye

Isn't this Mac discussion getting kinda long in the tooth already? Helluva lot of scene people use them for business and pleasure these days, yet there seems to be some shame in straying away from the Wintel domain.
