Apple the Religion

Posted by geeknews at 8:14 PM on April 5, 2006

What Exactly is the Apple Religion that is currently being used by Apple Pundits who have drank to much of the Koolaid

1. Windows Machines are full of virus, trojans and spyware.
2. Apple Machines are Superior Computers
3. Apple Machines cannot be breached by Virus, Trojans and Spyware
4. Apple Machines are Superior
5. Apple Machines are Superior

Ok get my point, some will say I don’t like Apple products, that’s quite the opposite, but I also am open eyed enough and work around enough home, business and enterprise level systems to know that Points 1,2,4,5 are not true. Some of the Apple Zealots have drank so much of the Koolaid that they no longer are able to quantify why these computers are superior except to say point 1,2,3,4,5 :)

In the real world people want performance for a good price. This is easily achieved with the competition that multiple PC manufactures bring to the floor with the hundreds of models to choose from. Apple is anti-competition when it comes to their computers, sure they let companies make accessories at a price but they have the ultimate stove pipe solution that locks people in.

This is why Windows PC users yawn when a new computer is introduced, because new computers are being brought to market every day, that have the hottest technology inside, you don’t have to wait a year for a new PC introduction, and if you don’t like the price you wait a few weeks and the prices go DOWN!

So we will rejoice that the Apple users are now going to be able to run Windows, but at the same time they are still locked into one platform with very few options ,and ohhh yea almost forgot when was the last time you saw an Apple product on sale. Don’t hold your breath!
