You'd go through the thread. Someone would say something, another guy would reply, then you'd see it.

"Looks like Google's throwing ideas at the wall to see what sticks."

Three or four posts would pass, and...

"Looks like Google's throwing ideas at the wall to see what sticks."

It was kinda scary.
Sounds like people were throwing comments at the wall to see what stuck

So Apple became Microsoft and Google became Apple.

Strange days, strange days indeed.

iTunes Match saved me hundreds. I took all my old Purchased content, before 256k drm free, and converted them.
I believe that was before they did matching your songs though, I believe now that you don't have to upload your own collection the version you download is at a higher kbps.

True, but some stuff of them is great, some is just meh and prefer apples' take in the software side more than half the time. For hardware I can't see myself using android for my phone, and I can see myself moving from android to an iPad mini or definitely a surface if they firesale it!

So we should just ignore what others are doing?
The glasses look stupid and pointless as hell.

And on Macrumors, yes. If I care to see what Google is doing, i'll go to a website that isn't specifically named to do Apple rumors/news.

The Glasses and Pixel are interesting but what about innovation in their core competencies?

Why haven't they revolutionized email or calendars?

Why are these products basically the same as they were 15 years ago?

That new iOS Mailbox app looks great, why isn't Google inventing things like that?
I am assuming that was a joke, right?

Just a personal observation sparked by this specific article, nothing more. I either gotta quit reading this rumors site (which I have always enjoyed) or unload my AAPL shares. Every other article I read makes me feel like Apple's best days are behind it, Google is up, and Apple is crashing down.

Yeah, all the raw data in the world cant replace good taste.

Google is strictly a technology company. Thats why they will never be as good as Apple.

No it wasn't.

Why hasn't email progressed much in the last 15 years? Not from Apple, nor MS, nor Yahoo, nor Google.

What more do you want it to do?

I imagine that email hasn't changed much for the same reason that MS Excel and Word haven't changed much. (OK Microsoft is probably a ad example.). It meets the need for the vast majority of users.

I look at Facebook and Twitter as being progressions of email. All three are electronic communication tools.

Exactly, mail clients feel so out of place on modern computers. Along with the entire mobile phone network system, they need a massive step forward.

Nobody has as good taste as Apple. That is why nobody will never be as good as Apple.

And best of all, if one cites the metric "good taste", nobody can really even dispute it, given how subjective the evaluation is. So no matter what else happens, one can always say that Apple is the best. That's because good taste is what matters most, and good taste is in the eye of the fanboi, errr ... the beholder. So Apple will always have good taste and therefore Apple will always be best.

I like it. /s

iTunes is really bloated though. Do you need a program to do everything And do those things mediocrely? I was using my sister's computer for a bit that had iTunes as the default video player. It took so long to load. Why, oh why use it, when you can use VLC player. And that goes for everything you need to do on a computer. There are much better alternatives out there.
