    Apple has hardware DRM. Its "yours" but you can't do what you want with apple things. Just like, you have a cam in your iphone, but i can deny you from using it with my awesome powers.

    Well, I fully expect Apple to release new iMacs with touchscreens soon. PC users will be like "*YAWN* We've had those for years, they suck." but the Apple fanboys/girls will be "OMGWTFBBQ! This is like the greatest thing since sliced sex!"

    They won't do it. They need to to be the same for all machines so they can write firmware updates.

    Well, the point of security (or lack of it) is the point of discussion here. The chastity belt has been used in the past as a means of protection AFAIK (against sexual assault, hence the iron "teeth").

    im enjoying this thread profusly, i have given up with trying to talk to people that own apple or mac products, for the most part they are blind.

    i find this ammusing, how easy it would be to be a mac technicial, someone brings in there mac cause its broken, just be like Nope its not broken its a mac, thats impossible take it home and try again your doing something wrong, MACS dont break

    too true. 9/10 times the folks who do this, also proclaim that volkswagen's are the best on the road, and they never break, which as we know....

    i have an iphone 4, and actually think its a fantastic phone.


    sure its got flaws, but 99% of them are caused by itunes, and not the phone itself.
