I bought a G4 in 2004 and I had more problems with that than I ever did with any of my 5 Windows systems. Apple is for people who dont understand - that's just my opinion, and I have no reason to believe their iphone will be anything better. Blackberrys work. Blackberry has superior email, and you can bet now that they are going to target Apple and 1-up its web browsing. Once thats done, they own the market in every facet.
Well, that is the opinion of one. While I am happy and would not trade my Blackberry for an iPhone, I have been using Macs since 2000. In fact, my original iMac is still in our living room and used daily by my daughter in high school while I use a MacBook as my main computer. I'm not sure what is wrong with design in technology. The iPhone is revolutionary and I don't understand why Apple haters are against it. Doesn't it help all of us to have companies that will push the envelope of technology? I also don't understand why people compare the iPhone to Blackberry, they are two different products and can both survive in the same world. JMHO though, just like you have yours.
