CNBC Is Ridiculous: Macs Come With Photoshop, etc etc

Gizmodo exposes the latest CNBC idiot.

Quote:
Regular people are probably confused by the re-inflamed Mac vs. PC ad war, which now focuses on price. Never fear, CNBC's Jim Goldman breaks down the true cost of PCs. Wait, Macs come with Photoshop? According to CNBC's Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, PCs need the following things to "perform as well as a Mac": $50 a year for anti-virus software, $104 multimedia software, $100 music software, $140 "Photoshop—you get that with Apple" and $129 for a Geek Squad visit. Over $600 worth of extra stuff. Oh, and Macs get 4x the battery life, have faster processors and a higher resolution screen.

They've been playing this game for years along with their blatant product placement in virtually every Hollywood blockbuster. If they could have figured out a way to stick a Mac in Star Wars and have it make sense they would have gladly paid to do so.

Heh, I noticed that. And I also notice when they use Dell or other PC's there's tape over the logo or it's edited out...lol.

It's silly.
Fanboys simply try and influence what Operating System they think people should use; when at the end of the day: if you're happy with it, use it.

If people want to use Windows, then go ahead, just watch out for malicious software.
If people want to use Mac, then go ahead, just be prepared to pay more for hardware.
If people want to use Linux/BSD/etc, then they too can go ahead, just be prepared to use the command line & try search for decent software.

No operating system is perfect: I use Windows simply because at the end of the day it gets the job done and I don't have problems finding compatible software.

Ridiculous Lag by wmp300n
Hey all, So this has stumped me. Over the last couple days, my adapter has been acting up and it would drop the connection, and I would be unable to reconnect no matter what. I think I fixed that by changing the channel on my router from 1 to 9, and it hasn't dropped since (not yet anyways)....

Apple Macs...
I just don't get it. I really don't. My dad has just bought a brand new iMac 21 inch with Apple's latest OS - Snow Leopard. And while it admittedly looks the business; it's sleek, smooth and refined and takes up little space on the desktop (unlike my big tower) - I just cannot get on with the...
