    Do you prefer to have all of your internet and computer services through one company? For example, some people use Apple services for the majority of their major usage. For example, Mac notebook/desktop, MobileMe for calendar/email/photos/file storage, iPhone and related apps for phone and mobile productivity (and mobile procrastination :p). There are people who do similar with Google (Gmail, Android device, Picasa for pictures, Google docs, etc.). This of course is convenient, but does anyone dislike being on one "ecosystem"? Do you prefer to have all of your services linked through one provider, or to use different services from different providers here and there?

    Just curious what everyone's preferences are.

    I don't care if they fall under the same company/ecosystem, I buy whatever I find is best.

    Mobile Me is a rip, so I bought my own hosting and domain. It costs more but is infinitely more usable.
    I buy Windows desktops, Apple laptops and Dell monitors.
    All my media is organised by iTunes, but I buy music from various sources.
    I get my gaming fun from all the consoles.
    I get TV from Sky and Freeview.
