- 10-30-2010, 10:51 PM #31Its just like Apple accessories. If you can find a 3rd party one that's cheaper, why wouldn't you take the cheaper one? Because it doesnt have a shinny Apple logo on it?
Here's a list of why your last comment is fail...
- 3rd party Mac batteries
- 3rd party mag chargers
- 3rd party bluetooth mouse
- 3rd party bluetooth keyboard
- 3rd party iPod/iPhone docks
...shall i go on? Sure, they cost a bit more, but i think if you've had experience with any of these 3rd party, youd understand why.
As far as the facetime thing goes...im willing to put money on facetime being implemented with Ping at some point to enhance the social side of Ping's function, which means it'll become a part of iTunes, which would bring it to PC's as well as Macs. Apple's determination to morph Ping into Facebook some how almost spells this plan out in black and white, because the next logical step in the social website world is going to be video interaction within the site/program itself...and excluding PC's from this would be progression suicide.

I think you've officially become king oblivious on this website...you pointed out that "Apple accessories" are overpriced and people only buy them because they have a "shiny apple" on them, lmao...it's quite obvious you have ZERO experience with said accessories...Apple's mouse and keyboard dont have a competitor in the same LEAGUE for the price of the mighty mouse and keyboard...the battery i referred to was for a mac (which is why i put mac next to it), another accessory which you can get 3rd party and almost always regret it a year down the road...
Read the posts before you reply to them with useless drivel...it'll save your hands alot of wasted typing.

And on the Yahoo topic, Yahoo Messenger for Mac doesn't allow for video chat between computer and iPhone yet. So with Yahoo you can go from "PC" to iPhone 4 only. FaceTime you can go from iPhone 4 to Mac ONLY (right now). I'd feel pretty comfortable saying 100% FaceTime will come to PC when it hits final build.

Brian, this is an argument I love. I save $400 now, and then in 2 years when I'm jonesing for newer/faster, I can go out and buy it - with the $400 I saved, while my Mac owning friends are still using their old Macs with half the RAM, half the speed, half the storage, blah blah blah. I'm gonna buy new in 2 years - it's a given. Why would I spend twice the price?

I personally will never own a PC again but I would for sure never tell someone to not buy a PC if thats what they wanted.
