    He was bragging this morning about how he bought a new iMac desktop yesterday, and BaBa Monkey came in to inform him that a new one is coming out this week. Howard was pissed. Also said he just bought a new iPad, and learned again that new iPads are soon to come out. He then said he bought an iPad mini, sounding real proud and like he just one-upped everyone because he has the latest and greatest. When they asked him why he got it, like what feature does it have that he needed it for, he couldn't come up with one. He actually admitted that he just bought it so that he could say he bought one. He then later admitted that he not only bought one - but 3 of them!!
    Apple just keeps re-releasing new upgrades to these devices, and dolts like Howard just keep buying and buying and buying. Got have the latest best!

    Apple is a company that preys on stupid people. People that THINK they are cool, and THINK they are into technology....but are actually much to stupid and lazy to actually learn anything about computers. Anyone with 1/2 a brain knows that you can buy a PC that is more powerful than the best Apple computer for less than 1/2 the price. If you actually take the time to learn about computers....you could build an incredibly kick ass PC yourself for less than 1/4 the price of an Apple desktop.

    I will admit that the IPOD was a great product that set the industry standard. Everything else that Apple puts out, desktops, laptops, Ipads etc....are under performing and overpriced. With a tiny bit of knowledge you can get devices that do everything Apple products do and more for MUCH MUCH cheaper.

    He could buy a new iMac, ipad, maxi-pad, and mini-ipad everyday for the rest of his life and the money spent wouldn't even be a drop in the bucket to him.

    Maybe the reason why Howard is a schill for apple is because Beth is in the back making them when she's trying not to be famous. All that Botox is making her Chinese! (Allegedly)

    I'd like to think Howard's getting paid by apple, but you'd think thss would get apple as a sponsor and not Ashley Madison.

    Apple puts together some beautiful and well built hardware. There really isn't a PC, tablet or mp3 player manufacturer that comes close. Well 'maybe' tablets now.

    If i wasnt sick i woulda never gotten the IPAD. That being said, its a severely high quality product and has provided me with endless hours of enjoyment.

    id still NEVER get rid of my PC.

    I just use the iphones, they have hell of a resale value. I juggle the company phone plan upgrade to the new phone everytime it comes out. Sell my old one and am out of pocket like 40 bucks. That's cool with me.

    True story.

    I laughed when he started spouting off about it during today's show-he was talking as if he had been a Apple/Mac user for 25 years. He fell into the trap when he saw someone's iPhone this past year and then went from that to the iPad to a Mac. Now he talks shit about the PCs and Androids that, up until recently, he was using. :hhh:


    :lol:

    I looooooove that strip. It's so funny that he posted that years ago and it's still completely relevant.

    Apple components are made by Toshiba, Samsung, Hitachi, LG, and Sharp. If they fail, it's the manufacturers' fault for lowering their quality controls.
