  • Yeah, because there's SOOO much diffence between one 2-metre length of oxygen-free copper and another! Unless you're going a fair distance beyond 5 metres, this is a waste of money.

  • In Australia there are effectively no laws against bait and switch tactics. Any company can list any price on an item and change the price when people come in-store. All they have to do is have E&OE (Errors and Omissions Excepted) written somewhere in the catalogue or ad and they can be as unscrupulous as they like! The US is definitely more consumer-focussed than Australia in this regard.

  • Interesting. Does this mean that Apple's finally admitting that it's just a PC? And is it admitting that it has a tiny fraction of the software available to PC users? Furtermore, how far away can it be that people get Mac OSX running on standard PCs in a way that's easy to set up? - Once this is possible, a lot of people will just buy the cheaper, more powerful PC hardware from generic PC makers and run them as Macs - kind of like the "Mac clone" days. Of course, those who like the appearance of a Mac would still pay the premium to have the real McCoy - I think this could actually boost Apple's share of the market - having a group of dedicated users who are less wealthy (i.e., can't afford Apple's computers) would bolster their share of the OS market (currently just above 4% - a bit below Windows 95's current share), which would, in the end, bring up their name to the point that more people would buy Macs. It's the same sort of spill-over effect they had in the early days of the Ipod when people thought they worked better with Macs, so some people bought Macs to go with their Ipods. Good luck to them, I say. It's interesting to see Apple doing something that could have a majority of Mac users buying a Microsoft OS to run on their systems. I just wonder if this is in some way and admission of their inferiority in the software market.

  • I don't care for Apple's industrial design at all personally, but I give them some credit - there's no way they'd come up with something as butt-ugly as the pics shown here - they might have in the fruity imac days, but now that would just be hilarious. Then again, they could stand to be laughed out of a consumer electronics market these days. Anyone remember when apple was a computer maker?

  • Thank you - It's been an annoyance for me for a long time, and it's far worse here in Australia than in the US. Grammar isn't really taught seperately to English Lit over here.
