A bit harsh in the wake or Mr. Jobs' recent demise.

I'm sure it wasn't intentional - the world still turns :wink:

A few hundred million may think the same of Windows ? not that I know owt about software.

Very dissapointed it was an outage , I was quite looking forward to bludgeoning the keyboard mercilessly - again :roll:

I don't think that's a very PC comment to make at the present time.

It's got nothing to do with Steve Jobs.
Other than it was supposedly his decision to force ipod owners to use itunes, in fact if memory serves he didn't write any of their software.

Excellent idea as they'd never crash so no need for airbags :lol:

Well if they didn't cripple their bluetooth you could just link up to a suitable head unit like most phones can.

Nah you'd just feel this urge to deny that you had a crash.

If apple made citroens you'd only be able to fill up at certain petrol stations, they'd cost 50% more than the competition, you'd only be able to get parts from the dealer, if you sat in the seat wrong the car would lose power but they'd deny there was a design flaw, the radio would only tune into certain stations, the cup holders would only take apple cups, the electric windows wouldn't go all the way down like in other cars, and underneath all the bodywork would be a tired 3 year old mondeo, but the media will call it "magical" and "innovative"

iPhones work brilliantly on the Parrot Bluetooth hands free kits I have, MKi 9200 and CK3100, what are you doing wrong Xac?
