Steve Jobs’ vision was always to empower the individual through the technology. Just hope Steve’s successors “get” the concept and don’t enslave the user, they way IBM, Oracle, and other networking companies have traditionally done.
As an Apple product user since 1994, I have to counter JPDC’s contention: “empowering” the INDIVIDUAL seemed to have been the farthest thing from Job’s mind – unless you were happily locked into the Apple workflow (with no need of cross-platform capability). I love Apple products…but the fact that I cannot even upload/download an audio file without it having to be piped through itunes is just one example of the iron grip the Apple people want to maintain. Apple is no less a capitalist enterprise than IBM. They just “window-dress” better with their marketing.
Like most other Apple products. Your a decade behind and your antiquated hardware is only for those that cannot keep up with things. In so many words they are for the ignorant. I prefer to stay on the cutting edge and learning so with that said I have no use for an I-anything.
JPDC- you have everything backwards like the typical apple slave would. Congrats for proving my point.
