@jimbo45 & ICit2lol:

The other thing that comes to mind is how the marketing and PR hacks have what I think is a farily recent stategy where they actually are leading the gullible consumer by the nose but letting them THINK they are making a independent choice. Anyone else notice this over the past decade or so?

It's clear to me that Apple for example has its tenticles in media like CNBC, and others. I honestly believe that somehow money or favors are changing hands between these organizations, because I rarely see outfits like CNBC ever giving a NEGATIVE comment about Apple, period. I defintely believe that this disguised advertising is what giving Apple its popularity, not the independently minded, savvy consumer. Am I nuts to think this?

Not at all, I also see it all too often, I see a lot of gadget review sites giving high ratings/"perfect" reviews to any Apple affiliated product that rolls across their list of products to review. My favorite site, Cnet, they used to do a lot of legit reviews, nothing seems biased. Ever since Apple rolled in with the I-Pad, and other touch-screen crap, all the Apple products would get the highest scores of reviews. So since Apple is paying off all of these industries to make their products look to be the best thing that ever existed, the tech-savvy reader would think it is a good product and would be subconsciously tricked into buying a product they would hate and would perform horribly.

Too right!

Yeah PwnFrnzy Have noticed a lot of the mags out here go the same way and not just Apple products - they all seem to think the Sun shines out of Norton - personally I find it all rather irritating. Not to mention wasting my dough on mags that should be "unbiased"

Windows Home Premium 64 Bit

I remember when the same press had similar attitudes towards McAfee back before the NAI days. The market niche press is often the victim of advertiser capture regardless of the industry segment. It doesn't matter if you're talking about gun rags, computer rags, guitar rags or the online counterparts. If there is advertising there will be pressure on the writers from the publishers not to alienate the advertisers.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

So I'll admit that I watch the sunday cartoons on fox (well not last night :/) but anyway, there is an Apple commercial seemingly every single break over a 3 hour time span. That's like 20 Apple ads in a single evening.

They have the money to absolutely BRAINWASH people with nothing less that a pure carpet bombing of constant inescapable media hype. I'm not sure you get that many beer ads during a football game!

Most mac Iphone tablet users are Glorified yuppie's trying to create a trend

Most of my co -workers have iphones i pod's and i think it's called Itouch

one co worker spends atleast 300.00 a month on the phone and apps

I just think that is way outrageous ,I mean seriously is it really that crucial to look at facebook or myspace instead of just waiting till later

what are you missing ?

That is why people are getting hurt killed and other things cause there eyes are glued to a mini screen instead of watching where you're going

Let me see if I got this correct. Apple wants every body to get rid of PC's and buy something from Apple, go figure.

Win7 Ultimate

If you look at "The Big Apple", ha I love that pun, you think there may be some worry here. But look at who they are up against when they go up against the PC on the maketing level...HP, IBM, AMD, Intel, MS, Dell, I mean like lets get real....And that does not even scratch the sruface if you consider software companies. It is like the United States giving up fossil will not happen in our life times.
