How Apple Lost
I do not like Apple. I am by no means a computer elite, but I do like a good machine. The prime reason I do not like Apple is because of it’s users. Often times, they’re annoying to me. An Apple sticker on your car?! Seriously? I should put a Windows sticker or an Ubuntu sticker on my car (Speaking of, I saw a guy in an Ubuntu toboggan the other day. Not much cooler than the Apple bumper sticker).
Apple’s iPad – and pads in general – fail because I feel that they’d be incredibly awkward to work with and to use. They come with a stand, or perhaps the stand is extra. So how irritating! An extra part! The netbook doesn’t need a fucking stand! Also, as a reader, the lighting / contrast is way off.
Now, Apple failed with the iPad – AND with all Apple products*** – by not supporting Flash. And again, those Apple users are adamant in overcoming that by saying “Oh, Flash sucks anyway man”, or “Flash is doomed to fail”. WRONG. Flash is easily 80% of the internet. Most EVERY site uses a Flash component. So… Apple is DOOMED TO FAIL because you can not get a full internet experience without Flash!! (as explained in the vid below).
Android has come out with it’s version of a tab which is Demo’d below. Now, I love Android – and really wish Verizon would HTFU with the Droid’s 2.1 Android update on my phone – but I’m still not sold on a pad or tablet device.
***Thanks Brad. Honest mistake. iPhone OS is the only Apple product that doesn’t support Flash.
