    Lol, I was being sarcastic. The random call from some middle eastern guy claiming to be tech support for windows is a well known scam.
    I was worried there for you for awhile. Think we need a sarcasm emoticon.

    The odd thing is I actually really like windows PCs, but I'm not really that drawn to windows phone or the surface. I like my iPhone and iPad. However It stinks that I wont get to fully take advantage of continuity unless I also have a Mac of some kind. It's just as far as desktop computers go, I can't see using a Mac mainly because I lose out in gaming and I actually do like microsofts services.

    I really like Windows 7 for my PC. Not so much 8 or 8.1. I tried some of the Lumia phones but I just don't like them. For a phone, I'm very happy with my 5c. I'm also using a Playbook and an iPad for tablets. My Note 3 is my media player and camera (sometimes).

    I could not care less what other people use for their computer and phone needs. I do like for family members to use the iPhone so we can FaceTime, iMessage and do AirDrop stuff. But it's not that big a deal to get ugly over. One son uses an S4 and swears by it. Fine with me! One sister uses a Droid. Again, no problem! All my other relatives are normal and use the iPhone.

    Let’s all sing a rousing chorus of Kumbayah and use what works for you. I used to think Apple/Mac users were arrogant d-bags, but after getting my first iPhone, I was hooked - and started down that slippery slope. For me, Apple/Mac just works. Within a 4 month period, my house switched totally to iPhone, iPad and Macs (Mac Mini, iMac and rMBP). My family is almost all iPhones (13 out of 14 adults - parents, siblings and their spouses), and a lot of the kids have iPods and iPads. But only 6 of us use Macs (at this point). Facetime is one of our primary connectivity methods - which is only possible with iPhone/iPad/iPod/Mac.

    Why the vitriol? Ignorance. FUD. Insecurity. Just get what works and then get busy living your life.

    They only have the market share because of price. It doesn't make economic sense for learning institutions and hospitals(or anywhere that uses a large amount of computers) to buy macs. Macs cost more, and for just using the internet, are over kill. I look at macs as an F-350 King Ranch. It's over kill if you just need a car to get you from point A to B. But if your going to be doing some heavy work, and want a super comfortable "ride", macs are totally unmatched.

    I used to hate on Apple because back when I was fully engulfed in droid land I thought they were cult like.

    I still kind of think its cult like but I'll drink the kool-aid.

    Me? Simple.. I play video games on the PC and they usually aren't on the MAC. I also like building my own gaming PCs.

    I play multiple games that aren't on Apple... Also... I like building my own machines. I didn't say due to one game. The thread is about why do some windows people hate Apple? I don't hate them.. Just saying why I prefer the other.

    No reason to go bashing since I don't love Apple the same way you do... :o.

    You can put windows on a Mac so that argument doesn't hold water. I completely accept that you like windows better, and that's perfectly fine. But I could play every game you play, plus the OS X exclusives

    Can I build my own Mac with all internals like I can for a PC? Such as in not Uber expensive like shopping on new egg? You're focusing on only one part of what I said.

    With parts exclusive from Apple? Such as if I buy a PC from Alienware it will cost me way more than one from Newegg that I build myself.

    Also the point of this is using Apple is it not.. So buying an Apple computer to use Windows.. Confuses me I guess.

    That's fine if you don't think it. In my opinion it was since he was basically mocking me without quoting me.. It wasn't a clarification question.. It was straight mocking.
