Well that makes sense.

Jobs said it was hard enough for his customers to learn how to use a mouse, why confuse them even more by putting more than one button on it...


Yeah, that about sums up the folks that buy those products...

I find it interesting that he denied his daughter was his, after a paternity test proved it, while she and her mother were living in poverty, and he was flossin'...

He is dead. Get over it.

I have and will continue to use Apple and Android devices. Both platforms have strengths and weaknesses.

The idea that Apple products are dumbed down for computer illiterate customers is generally propagated by anonymous faux computer experts who espouse Android features that few people care about and even fewer that will actually use them for any practical purpose.

Wow. I musta missed that part. I swear all I heard was, "I went to the local walgreens (or some store) and bought all the deodorant and butter dishes..."

Okay I confess, I do not recall what I heard with 100% accuracy.

But it is a good video nonetheless. Not that that user group needs anyone else to come by and kick them anymore, but well, good for a laugh. The house of cards drops a wall or two...

Okay I heard it again. And so THAT is what Wozniak looks like... Huh. hehehe.

I think there is some validity to that. Many people ( myself included) who stated with Apple II E only know Apple ( same with Microsoft) and never ventured. There are tons of videos on YouTube that show Apple users trying Android phones and many are just stunned when they learn what features are available. It's much the same with Chrombooks currently.

Apple sells old tech "that just works" and is familiar. Some of the stuff that is "new" on their phones have been out for a decade. They are hardly cutting edge. The walled garden also helps those not technically inclined. It is seen as a positive by older folks.

Wozniak was the genius. Jobs was the A-hole that stole his ideas.
Great businessman? Sure. Terrible human being? YES.

Character and ethics still matter to some of us....and no, it's not being a "hater," it's being a decent human being.

HAR!

Your comment is the equivalent to ME going out and being amazed at an AT&T U-verse package only because Milana Vayntrub showed it on the TV...
