Co worker asked me if I had played Oregon Trail. I immediately thought of b floppies & agonizing deaths of drowning & cholora while he pulled out his snazzy iProduct & started up what looked to be a Farmville ®© clone. Now I feel old & silly.

"I never directed anyone to go and copy anything from Samsung," Forstall testified. "We wanted to build something great... so there was no reason to look at something they'd done."

You mean like cars.

theorellior: Vaneshi: It does make you feel old when a horde of kids, usually 360 owners, all defend Microsoft doesn't it? That realisation that for them the 90's was the time they spent as either in nappies or a glint in the milkman's eye and they really have no idea what you are talking about.

I remember the Browser War like it were yesterday. Took guts, grit and steel to live out those days. I remember Captain Renfitz from Netscape Command giving the orders to attack, you could hear the modem squeals for miles. Of the hundred men in my platoon, only six came back. 404s everywhere. It was a dark day.


Kid, you had it soft. I served with General Mirsky in Lynx Command . If you only knew how many good men we lost, men who died screaming, face down in the MUDD.....

Vaneshi: Kuroshin: That list predates iAnything. It was an old joke tossed around the IT community wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy before Apple had measurable marketshare in anything. Microsoft hate has existed for longer than many Farkers.

/and it was earned!
//now I feel old

It does make you feel old when a horde of kids, usually 360 owners, all defend Microsoft doesn't it? That realisation that for them the 90's was the time they spent as either in nappies or a glint in the milkman's eye and they really have no idea what you are talking about.

Microsoft earned and continue to earn the title of "the beast of Redmond".


You want to really feel old? rememeber back to the time when Microsoft and bill Gates were viewed as the embodiement of all that was evil and wrong in computer companies, a soul-less Borg-like giant that wanted everyone to confrom to thier (inferior) proprietary standards. And Apple and Jobs were considered the heroic defenders of Freedom and the little guy.

Now consider that to people born in the 1990's or later, Gates is known primarily as a rich Philanthropist, MS is the also-ran company producing technically superior but never as commerically sucessful products (Zune) and Apple is the corporate behemoth crushing the souls out of techies and technological innovation.

Need a Dispenser Here: Would it run exclusively on iFuel, have every component welded together, and cause Apple to sue Henry Ford for patent infringement?

/someone had to get the hate fest started


Thing is, that's pretty accurate. Just replace the iFuel with an iCharger - a proprietary, patented charging station that can't be used to charge anything else, and prevents any third-party charging systems from working with the iCar.

Pointing out the actual current company trends isn't "hating." Apple takes "proprietary" to whole new levels.
