When Apple gets it wrong: 10 irritations from the last decade

,----[ Quote ]
| As an Apple customer since buying my first 
| desktop computer in 1993, I yield to no one in 
| my love and admiration for Apple products. 
| Apple makes durable, well built machines from 
| quality components loaded with well-
| programmed, intuitive software.
| It also makes machines that can do stuff that 
| no one else's can, such as support its 
| operating system in multiple languages, 
| straight out of the box. Does your partner 
| speak Arabic, Chinese or Japanese? No problem. 
| Your account stays in English, your partner's 
| in their native tongue. Genius.
| But all this Tablet/Slate/flat thing malarkey 
| is too much. This is a technology company, not 
| a fully fledged religion, for crying out loud.

Woz: Google's Nexus One is my favorite gadget

| According to NBC Bay Area News, Apple co-
| founder Steve Wozniak was on the set of an
| education program called "NBC Class
| Action" when he was asked an entirely
| innocent question: what is your favorite
| gadget?



Woz (Apple co-founder):

| "It's very much like that, but sometimes the engineers are - yeah, no,
| I think it's very similar, very similar. Sometimes the engineers are
| true artists and really care what they're doing, doing a really great
| job. Although, I don't know how much I can even say that because the
| big companies, Microsoft, Apple and AOL, they tend to turn out the
| crappiest products, you know, software-wise. The ones that have the
| most bugs, the most items that are supposedly in there but don't work.
| The most things that are left out because they aren't finished. The most
| things that are inconsistent with the way they did their last program. I
| get the worst, worst software almost always from Apple."
