Hear ye! The revolution cometh!

iPad, iPhone, iPad, iMac, iWeb, iLife … iDontCare! Who in the name of Gunther figured
out that “Hey….. we will take a line of products, and name them all “I-something” and
call it a revolution!” Come on, Thigs really took a turn for the worse.

Ok, I applaud apples designers but I pity their customers. Why? Well, heres
what I believe happen. Some guys saw the prototype for the iPod and figured
“Hey, lets get that thing, market it so hard so that almost everyone will get it”

Said and done. The iPhone became a household name. Now, apple more or less
managed, by dedicated, brainwashed fanboi’s and very clever marketing more or
less make the word “mp3player” into more or less another word for iPod, and on
top of that, they flooded the market with different models of a model of mp3 players.
Confused yet?

ipod Nano, Maxi, Video, Shuffle, Mini, you name it, it was all there. I am pretty sure
that you could get iPod Condom. It was also when the iPod Touch started surfacing, that
the iPhone came, wich pretty much is an iPod touch, with capabilities to make phonecalls,
so… and the oooooooh so important “app store” wich, frankly only exist to box in the
customers even more, because if i want to load an application that I myself coded,
into my own phone, wich i OWN, I still need permission from Apple, because if I
dont, I most likely cant even get the software on my phone. Way to box people in.

Now they figured out that “Heeeeeey” netbooks are cool and all, but we still havent milked
out all the dineros from the “i” concept. So, they pretty much stretch an iphone, remove
the phone capabilities and tadaaaaaaa the iPad was born. And guess what! Apple
fanboi’s are selling their own mothers to get a hand on one. I have tried all these Apple products
and frankly,  The only thing I am impressed with is the OSX, wich in terms of speed, stability and
design beats Windows hands down, but seriously, in the hardware department, stop living
on the hype and create something that is not an “i” derivative and something that does not have a
3 letter tail attached to it…… unless its iTox, the software that shows you what Apple is
doing to your brain.

Iphone this and Iphone that.

Oh my GOD! I am getting so fed up with the hype surrounding Iphone.
It’s a mobile phone from apple. So what? Ok, lets get my view straight
from the onset. The Iphone as a really awesome flow, just because
the hardware is made for the software and they are locked to eachother.
So, naturally, it flows nice and easy compared to many other phones
and the same can be said about apples computers. But really….

Does it need huge headlines? I personally dont think so. I am not
a Mac Fanboi, neither am I one of those that need to have a gadget
just “because its so cool” to have one. The reason I would want an
fruitphone would be that it has a little better capabilities when it comes
to the extra functions. Right now I have a HTC Touch. First edition, so
its a little slow and it runs out of memory when I surf, but I know about
this and expect it. However, I am eyeballing the new HTC Touch HD
(A.K.A Blackstone).

I know, I know. It has Windows Mobile on it. However, that is ONE
of the many reasons. You see, I have all my ebooks in Microsoft .lit
format, wich, albeit is a locked format, but its pleasant to read, and
well, im comfortable with it. And seeing how much of a PDA this thing
is, I already have a score of different software that I use on a daily
basis that can still be used on that phone. Nifty huh?

Now, just to annoy some of the people out there, heres a comparison
of the BlackStone contra Iphone3G: (click image for larger version)
