    Hey Oxford..... take note.
    Even a fellow Apple person is calling it as it really is.

    Oxford (and whatever sock puppet) = TROLL
    Oxford (and whatever sock puppet) = "full of ****"

    Face it bucko - you have an audience of ONE - (you) who believe your crap.
    ALL the rest think you are a complete and total loon.

    Get a clue you moron. You spew total bull**** and now have LESS than zero
    credibility. You could now actually post something factual, but the fact
    that YOU
    (or one of your sock puppets) posted it - automatically makes it highly
    suspect.
    If it's not written off as more fanatic fanboy stupidity - from a PROVEN
    idiot.

    Sorry Apply Fanboy, your "facts" don't stand up to scrutiny.

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_PC_compatible

    The declining influence of IBM
    Since 1981, IBM PC compatibles have grown to dominate both the home and
    business markets of commodity computers, with the only notable
    alternative architecture being the Apple Macintosh computers (which
    comprise around 4% of shipping PCs). However, IBM itself lost the
    leadership role in the market for IBM PC compatibles by 1990.

    - it was the IBM clones that killed off the IBM PC, NOT Apple.


    From:http://blog.wired.com/wiredphotos6/2...5150_pers.html

    The 10 Gadgets That Changed the World
    Apple often gets credit for starting the personal computer revolution,
    but the Macintosh, which debuted in 1984, was not the original
    mass-market PC. On Aug. 12, 1981, IBM launched the 5150 and changed home
    and office life forever.

    splash.

    Nope. In fact, one of the computers the Mac/Lisa were based on was the Xerox
    Star, which was NOT a general-purpose computer, it was a desktop publishing/
    page layout workstation. I had the opportunity to play around with one
    several years ago; it was quite impressive.

    What was a 'standard' Ethernet card?
    Almost every model of Mac had Ethernet built in already.
    Until the later PPC years, Macs were using NuBus cards, not ISA.
    Ethernet didn't have just one plug type, either -- there were several
    common types before the RJ-45 became ubiquitous.

    Yes, I was writing about the number of subscribers, because the
    statement was about selecting the carrier. The only quantifiable fact
    we can use to show that consideration is the number of people actually
    using the carrier.

    Sure, people may WANT more from a carrier -- some expect the very best
    of every story they've ever heard (lowest cost, best coverage, fastest
    data network, most features, most open attitudes, unlimited handset
    choice, all at the same time!). But the only way to actually show how
    the choices affect what they actually do is to look at the one they
    use.

    Surveys about satisfaction are usually about specific features or
    customer handling, not all issues at once.

    That would be a waste of a good bullet. There's a shortage of lead, and
    ammo is getting expensive ($23 for 50 rounds of 9x18 Makarov! It was
    $7.50 no long ago...).

    Apple was founded on Phones, here is one of their earliest models.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:B..._in_museum.jpg

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_box

    So Apple has about 10 more years experience than Nokia in the Biz, and
    100's of lifetimes more talent.

    And yet they have just marketed their first commercial product. They must
    hire retards and morons if it takes them so long to go to market with a
    product.

    Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs did not invent the Blue Box.
    All they did was build and sell the device to people who wanted to make long
    distance calls and not pay for them.
    Here is a link to a 1971 article on the inventor of the Blue Box.

    Apple did NOT make that, it was a device that the Apple founders used to
    PRANK CALL PEOPLE.

    I hardly find that mature.

    Apple was "founded" on federal crime - is that your final answer?
    Are you contending that the boys built and retailed blue boxes?

    Second time today you post complete crap and are (as always) wrong.
