Random thoughts about my experience with apple and microsoft
My ipod touch is the coolest, easiest-to-use,just works out of the box seemlessly, gadget I’ve ever owned. It promises to do a lot and over delivers.
I wish I had an iPhone.
I’ve never owned a mac but have wanted to for a couple years-mainly for the ability to make some great videos.
Every time I need to purchase a new computer for the house or dock I’ve looked at macs and just can’t bring myself to spend over double to get a similarly spec’d mac compared to a pc.
Windows 7 is a ginormouse step forward over any of the three previous pc operating systems I’ve used.
I LOVE it’s file system, love windows live writer for blogging, love windows LIVE movie maker(all new in windows 7), and many of the other features in win7
Although the iPad is cool as hell I’d rather have a $700 laptop with a 4g sprint connection which they will be rolling out this summer. faster speeds and you can do wayyyy more on a laptop than you can do on an iPad.
That’s not to say the iPad isn’t cool as hell, but you’d be able to do wayyyyy more on a $700 laptop with 4g.
I also think that a laptop is a better format for a mobile computing device than an iPad.
If you carry and iPad around you have to protect that screen. with a laptop you close the cover and the screen is protected.
With an iPad you need to hold it with one hand and type with one, with a laptop you adjust the angle of the screen to what works for how you are viewing it and bang away with two hands.
just off the top of my head.
Oh I’ll also add that the apple products have wayyyyy cooler interfaces.
the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad all are way cooler interfaces than any android or other phones or mini computers I’ve ever used.
