I bet for the first few weeks they’ll be bombarded with faulty/damaged devices and technical issues.

Did anyone answer your question?
The Apple Store will be opening in the Canberra Centre. From the direction they published on their website, I think it’s just around Boost Juice. I suspect it’s the old “Esprit” store. I haven’t been around that part for some time now. If I’m mistaken feel free to correct.

I’ll be taking my laptop there on the opening day (8 September @ 10AM) as I’ve got some “issue” with my iLife after upgrade to Mountain Lion. I just need more advice before I do anything. I don’t want to lose years of photos I’ve stored in there. =)

Ford Prefect sucks. I’m much better.

I don’t remember the Caulfield. Did it have the 138 grey motor?

I can’t recall that being specified in the manual. It was quite a good seller, so you can probably pick yourself up a copy on eBay or the like and check it for yourself.

Thanks. Always good to converse with a fellow Holden.

Gamers and people who know what they’re doing are much better off on something windows based.

And the rest of us who are through playing games will use a system that actually works

That offends me, sir! We must settle this with a game of Brockian Ultra Cricket.

I’m also going to mention that I have to use a Mac Pro at work and I don’t like it. I would never buy one with my own money.

What do you mean you don’t like it?

It’s a tower with hard drives, a pair of CPUs, some ram and a DVD burner. It’s an effing computer (a very powerful one)

You surely mean you don’t like Mac OS, the actual think you interact with on the screen.

Considering that Mac hardware is sold with MacOS installed, it shouldn’t need to be said that in using the words “Mac Pro” I meant the OS as well.

But, if you really want to be picky, I think the hardware alone is very overpriced.

I am reading this on a first gen iPad that we’ve had for a couple of years. It is an amazing bit of technology and I really like it. I certainly have not seen or used a tablet which I would consider either better, or better value for money. I also have an iPhone, and while it is certainly a step up in technology from my previous semi-smart Nokia, it really isn’t any better when it comes to usability (things that work really well are cancelled out by the things you just plain can’t do, and after one year it is getting slow to respond and crashes a bit).

There are some pretty frustrating things that Apple have done with their products, quite deliberately, and thus, in my mind, have earned all the hate they receive and more.

For the record, I also hate Microsoft, IBM, and Nestle, but am somewhat ambivalent about Sony and Boeing.

I find it funny that the people most vocal against owning Apple products have rarely (if at all) used/owned one themselves. I still constantly get jibes about single button mouse etc when I pull my laptop out at a client site, but every contractor I see on site now is carrying a Mac too.

The people who are running Macs now have no doubt run a Windows desktop/laptop so know what the alternative is. If for whatever reason they need to run Windows, Bootcamp is there out of the box (or VMWare Fusion). I have run OSX and Windows 95/98/2000/XP/7, for extended periods of time (and ran Linux exclusively for 3+ years for all the l33t hax0rs that want to one up me).. and I use OSX now and wouldn’t change if you paid me.

Ever since I started refusing to support family and friends if they ran Windows I have clawed my weekends back. I have converted 5+ family/friends to Mac from PC (during the Vista period it wasn’t difficult), and after a few initial questions to get up and running I don’t hear from them again.

Yep, they’re great for technological dunces and the image conscious.

You’re so cool because you use a particular OS system for something useless like games.

Great. Now we can all judge people even more based on where they shop.
