    and Linux/BSD users are a bunch of nerds :D stereotyping is a funny thing ;)
    "The report found that 67% of Mac users have a college or advanced degree, as opposed to 54% of PC users." And they used a PC to get there (which is most likely true).

    I seriously doubt the accuracy, not all people are honest after all.

    You mean as young, urban, and hip as these guys??

    -http://www.southparkstudios.com/full-episodes/s15e01-humancentipad-

    (Apple has ridden a string of prescient product rollouts to market-beating financial success, but the company's recent privacy scandals and reputation for serving status-seeking customers haven't escaped the notice of the sacred cow-toppling creators of South Park.

    Trey Parker and Matt Stone kicked off the 15th season of the Comedy Central animated series Wednesday with an episode based around Apple's iPad tablet and featuring Apple CEO Steve Jobs as a foul-mouthed, diabolical tyrant.

    Apple has in recent days been caught up in a major controversy over its use of location tracking data on its iPhones and iPads. ...

    Parker and Stone clearly moved fast to create the South Park episode, called "HUMANCENTiPAD" —the location tracking file has only been heavily publicized for about a week and Apple made its first public statement on the matter just yesterday.

    But clearly the South Park creators were aware of the scandal when they made the episode. One character, distraught that his best friend has been kidnapped by fictional Apple goons, says that it's no use going to the police, because "when the police want to know where somebody is, they ask Apple." )

    That's funny Hawki:) I can't see Apple staying in the limelight to long as they are in one of the toughest fields in the industry. Apple should concentrate on what they know, making hardware easy to use for the masses with great software. At the moment, they have this backwards.

    I remember when my dad brought home the first apple computer, complete with two paddles. According to him (hes just an old mainframe programmer ;) ), apples downfall was they stayed proprietary whereas pcs were much more open. There are some benefits in his opinion to apple being proprietary.

    For myself, I prefer to bake my own machine just the way I want it, for much less than an apple. I also prefer to run the OS that has the majority of hardware and software made for it. There is something to be said about having more choises IMHO.

    I do get a good laugh though when I talk to die hard this or thats, whether its OS or platform. There is always a right tool for the job, and often the operator of the tool is as critical a factor as the actual tool itself!

    Sul.
