I can't figure out what I should think about Apple. They used to be the uncontested best but now I'm constantly dissatisfied with the Apple products I try out. Still, everyone around me and their mother want the latest Apple products like there's nothing else out there. To help me decide if buying Apple products was really that bad I made the following list of the Pro's and Con's of committing to Apple: Apple Pros: 1. Most apps in app store on mobile devices (could be temporary) 2. Popular 3. Still new enough not to have as many possible viruses/malware/hacks as windows products (definitely temporary, but will take a long time) 4. Completely revolutionized the industry 5. Pushed Microsoft to make better products at lower prices 6. Have a lot of shortcuts and gesture commands 7. Usually make awesome commercials (not the ones with the kid in the blue shirt) Apple Cons: 1. Requires iTunes (bloatware) 2. Won't usb charge on non-Apple products (iPad 2) 3. Mystery restrictions passcode (I only have used one 4 digit passcode my entire life, but it didn't work. They don't let you recover it so I have to download iTunes (which I don't want) and factory reset it) <--- May or may not be their fault, but its a pain nonetheless 4. Glitchy after a while (iPad 2) 5. Uber expensive for comparible hardware (Macs) 6. Patent everything to eliminate competition 7. Tight restrictions on apps in app store (with so many app developers this may be a good thing too) 8. Wouldn't let Google include software to make chrome the fastest browser on iOS devices 9. Generally expensive apps (compared to android) 10. Less app depth than android (Twitter apps and facebook apps) 11. Make it reallly difficult to use an Apple product with anything not Apple (ties in with no usp charging on non-Apple products) 12. Jailbroken apps are a joke compared to rooted apps (Or it could be the poor organization of the cydia store, can't really tell) 13. Updates regularly counteract jailbreaks 14. Lost Jobs's brains and balls 15. Less freedom on iOS than Android (no tethering, no flashing custom ROMs, less app depth) As you can probably tell I usually run into problems every time I use an Apple device. From my list I'm leaning towards quitting all Apple products, but I'm probably pretty biased by now. That's why I'm interested in hearing what you guys think. Did I get something about Apple wrong? Did I miss something? Why do/don't you use Apple products? P.S. - If you say "because Apple makes all the best stuff" I'm going to reach through your computer screen and punch you in the balls (fair warning).
