Sometimes an Apple ain't all it's cracked up to be...

Eric 2.0 | Chicago Tribune | Blog

I get a lot of grief from Apple fans who think I pick on them too much. I can't help but pick on the ones who pretend that Apple is somehow spiritually superior to the rest of the "evil corporate giants".

I missed this last week, but it's a perfect example of how Apple is no better, or worse than any other corporation. Eric 2.0 in the Chicago Tribune tells the story of Apple's cheap MacBook Pro displays, the angry customers, Apple's deception and eventual settlement of the suit. Most telling is apple's continued use of inaccurate and misleading specifications regarding the laptop's display capabilities. There is no other way to put it: it's fraudulent! I hope Apple sees the light and begins to do a better job of ACCURATELY describing their products capabilities.

Sometimes I swear they're worse than Microsoft!

Great Vista feature for your XP

QuizoApps: QTAddressBar

This little application provides the "breadcrumbs" navigation address bar similar to Windows Vista. Makes it easier to eliminate one of the biggest problems for new users and geeks alike: remembering where in the heck you are!

Makes Vista adoption even less likely for me, if that's even possible!
