    Go to a Windows Website and the talk is completely different, it's all about the hate, the majority of Windows users hate everything from Windows 8, to Surface RT to Surface Pro to MS Office to Windows Phone to Steve Balmer to the Ribbon to Subscription Fees and so on and so forth since the year dot.

    The difference is like Night and Day or Sweet and Sour.

    They asked a woman in a sheep lineup why she was there so early to buy the iPhone 5, she said because they were so cheap, only $200, she was going to buy five. They asked her what features she liked, she said she didn't know anything about it. That's a Apple person.
    Apple is known to instantly purge any complaints from their forums (they probably lean on pro-Apple sites too).

    So what you are actually saying is people buy Apple products, not because they like them, but because they are retarded?

    Yeah problem is Mint runs slower than Windows 8 and what happens if the wireless doesn't work.
    Not on my system. It also uses fewer resources. Most importantly - it doesn't have Metro.
    There is something wrong with his hardware.

    We are onto animals - LOl are we doing travel and photography as well.
    Might as well, we've gone off track a bit, I'll fix those photos, it doesn't look like I'm into pohtography from those, wrong computer. I'll try to find that 200 year old village for Ray as well, I'm not sure I took any photos, but I probably did. I've got over 10000 photos, so might take a while.

    The fish are Peppermint Bristlenose, a catfish from South America, very expensive when I took those photos, about $400 per pair, but as you can see they were all in the logs breeding and I sold the babies for $15 each, hundreds.

    Very close species to the BOSE people. Marketing tells them they are awesome, they aspire to own them, but they don't eval any other reputable company. Sad.

    Or they can go out and by an Android tablet and get robbed by Google.
    Most people who buy Apple don't feel robbed. It's usually Windows fans who wonder why people like something else other than what they use who feel it's the ripoff.

    I wouldn't say that exactly, I don't particularly like calling people names, just pointing out that when it comes to tech, a lot of them are followers and they've really got no idea what they're buying. I do however use the term Sheep and Fanboy because that's actually become a fairly common term, with no real malice attached, why, I get called a Fanboy on here, while technically incorrect, it doesn't really bother me.

    If you ever see me call someone a name like that tell me and I'll slap myself silly, see I cant even say it.

    The reason they don't feel robbed is because they're blinded by the love, I would call a $29 cable to connect to a USB a ripoff, I would call a cover for $79 a total ripoff, yet when Microsoft makes an actual keyboard cover for around the same price the world is up in arms. I would call their Apple Care plan illegal, and in most countries it is, the biggest ripoff on the planet.

    I buy it in the pharmacy in Germany for about 7 Euros a bottle which lasts us for a month for 2 people. The make is Aagaard Propolis mouth water. Not sure whether it is available in the UK. In the US they sell it in the health stores like GNC - but they have other makes.

    It will boost profits but its not that big of a deal to upgrade unless you just want to be top of the market.

    Its an extended warranty, unsure what is illegal about that. And you can take it into a store and get it exchanged, that is very nice. Work paid around $250-$300 for a 3 year pro support warranty on my new dell laptop.
