the_rhino: Apple products are terrible.
Publikwerks: the_rhino: Apple products are terrible.How so?
Theaetetus: I believe he's using the definition of terrible as "formidably great" or "arousing feelings of awe or admiration because of greatness".
pastorkius: FTFA: Apple strayed from its typical Myriad Set font for a much lighter Helvetica Neue, a seemingly conscious shift in style. The last time Apple switched font gears so abruptly was when the MacBook Air was released; a similar move to a skinny typeface at Macworld 2008 that mimicked the thinness and lightness of the new machine. Unlike those clean banners, however, its usage here tends to get a bit muddled by the bold colors surrounding it, especially given the semi-mirror image in the letters.Oh my god, Helvetica Neue!?!? This clearly means...something.
Kinek: Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a watermark.
pastorkius: should have gone the troll route and done the whole thing in Comic Sans. Wasted opportunity, really.[i.imgur.com image 640x500]
lilbjorn: Oh goody! Another Apple hate thread.
Vaneshi: /Absolute loyalty to a corporation that cares not one iota about you is as retarded as absolute hatred of a corporation.

Vaneshi: Depends, if you turn around and tell me OS X is a walled garden upon which you can only run certified apps from a single app store. I'm going to laugh in your face, because you have zero idea what you're talking about.

I'm going to laugh in your face, because you have zero idea what you're talking about.To me it ranges from something simple like iTunes mandating that I must arrange my MP3s by their metadata, to the original iPod decision to play only very limited types of audio files, to excessive DRM, to lack of customization options in their software.I use macs a lot... I work in post production and 9 times out of 10 the Avid is running on a mac. I actually think it's a wonderful platform for that kind of thing, the OS tends to handle video quite well. However, I wouldn't actually buy anything from Apple for my personal life. Well, except that I have a 5th generation iPod video which I love... but then again, I am using Rockbox to actually run the thing.
