1) Ah, see I like the tap click. It's faster for me. Clearly, you're a dirty palm-checker.

2) Do you think this is the case considering that they haven't changed the design of most of their computers in two years?

What about the innovations that have come from their designs in monitors alone? They really piloted the flat screen LCDs, I believe.

3) I also think Windows should do that. First thing I do with a new PC is uninstall Solitaire. :) Then I turn off the bazillion services that I'll never use and that are eating my memory.

Reasonably, Apple bundles their life software and target most of their computers to families. I'd say something like the MacBook Pro should be bundled with iWork rather than iLife to distinguish it as a professional computer outside of name alone. However, it's likely marketing. iLife users generally buy a .Mac account which is constant revenue for Apple.

I should also point out that both iWork and iLife are only $80 and can't really be a substantial cost additive.

What put the fly in your Goldblum ointment? (I'm so funny!)

iComment, from iAnda.

1: Clearly.
2: That may mean they're spending the money coming up with dumb and unusable exterior designs for things... which is even worse.
3: Agree.

#: I hate the iNaming scheme.

I can hate whomever I want!

What it ultimately comes down to for me, I think, is that I necessarily believe that the software manufacturer and the hardware manufacturer should be separate companies, or things are going to happen that adversely affect me as the consumer.
