World is in need.

The MAC versus PC advertisement, question from Microsoft to Apple is very simple, why should a sane person pay nose bleeding amounts to buy an Apple computer? The stability claim for Apple desktop OS is a fable. I would categorically say Microsoft XP matches or performs better. Apple few months ago introduced a new Notebook with 17th Inch screen and the usual lollypops for a price tag for $2800. Apple discussion boards were going gaga over it. Honestly HP, IBM, Dell, or Sony makes better, cheaper, stable, hip PCs/laptops for ¼ of the price. Apple’s $2800 price tag sounds like emperor’s new clothes. Would you pay $2800 just for browsing the internet using Safari and checking emails with a graphically good looking email client? Apple customers are in a deep sleep to realize that are paying $500 to $800 extra for the logo.

Apple has been trashing PC and its software for past 2 -3 years and no one really cared from the PC side, but now just 2 advertisements from Microsoft, the apple lovers are going nuts and all their defense systems is on high alert.
Apple as a company has no choice here. They will sideline this new cost saving advertisement from Microsoft because they definitely don’t have an answer. The cheapest part in apple is their logo embedded mouse pad which is three times costlier than the normal mouse pad used by normal mortals of planet earth, my question, does the mouse travel faster on a mouse pad with Apple logo? Why it is priced so high? PC has come a long way and evolved to a greater extent, there is no point in trashing it.

I had an opportunity to work on Apple Apps; there are apps for anything these days. There could be an app to stop your snore. The coding language used by Apple is Objective C and this language is similar to any other language known to developers however the language syntax is totally unconventional and obnoxious. There is a thin line between being different and being ridiculous e.g. Dennis Rodman and Apple Objective C.

In support of Apple, they are great inventors; get this right, they were the first company to offer a viable working solution for the music industry. Music industry was in chaos before Apple started distribution via their ITUNES platform. There distribution mechanism is simply fantastic and it works well. Apple’s enemy is their price tag, until this factor is sincerely addressed by Apple, the normal human beings would continue to believe apple is a fruit found in the refrigerator or in a basket.

Apple and Microsoft should take the high road, drop these stupid commercials and focus on inventing concepts for the world. World is in need.
