    There is a very large difference between idolizing and respecting. Not once did I ever say I idolize those people. I hate the Beatles but I respect them. I hate apple, but I respect what they've done. Apple's strategy of making easy to use computers made them a multi-billion dollar company. Facebook was successful because every American seems to have ADHD and can't just do nothing in the 10 second gaps of bordem. Respect is earned, not given. They've earned it. Idolization is given by retards.

    Why wait for a habitable atmosphere?

    Except the problem is, Apple didn't make the computer easier, they just marketed the Macs as such and people were brainwashed into thinking they were. Much like it brainwashed people into thinking it was virus/malware free.

    Facebook's failure wasn't its users, it was the fact it was saving user's data and selling it to some company. Also, blaming just Americans for something every country does (read: being stupid) is rather asinine.

    How feeble-minded does a person have to be to be"brainwashed"? Macs are better at some things, less so at others, I'm not at all keen on Apple in general, but your rabid "Apple is the antichrist" baloney is just wearing!
    And if Facebook is a failure, I wouldn't mind sharing in it's awfulness ;)

    Trigger happy mod deleted my post.

    Basically, learn to read. We weren't talking about its financial success.

    Re-read the above, then you might understand.;)

    That makes no sense whatsoever. You can't simply fumble and tell me to "re-read the above", we weren't talking about Facebook as a financial success, we were talking about its impact on society and its shady practices, which make it a failure as an "advancement of society".

    Also, a lot of Apple users think its easier and safer to use a Mac than Windows when that isn't true, so Apple only has a die-hard fanatic base behind it that are easily brainwashed. There is also nothing an Apple can do better than a Windows.

    (Yawn) OK, as it all needs to be spelt out for you:-
    (1) I can and did suggest you re-read something.
    (2) Yes, you weren't talking about FB as a financial success; I was (other people sometimes say things too!)
    (3) Of course Apple products occasionally do things best, more often vice-versa. If you had read properly, you would have seen me write that I wasn't very keen on Apple generally, only that I objected to knee-jerk responses like yours (ranting away at me as an Apple fan because you didn't understand - that's why I suggested re-reading, thus provoking another knee-jerk retort)
    Hope this helps. ;)

    @Zoltan:- From reading the previous posts, I think you may have to simplify this further, to be in with a chance! :)

    1. Very well, what is it you'd like me to re-read?
    2. You misread our posts, replied with something unrelated and once I pointed it out, you went into full damage control instead of admitting your mistake.
    3. I never called you an Apple user, and its hardly a knee-jerk reaction if I've said the same thing for years and people keep buying Apple products without doing any sort of research before hand.

    1) What I said.
    2) I misread nothing, I made an independent comment which you can't/won't understand.
    3) I never said you did call me an Apple user (re-read again!).
