    Asking a site dedicated to Apple if people are Apple geeks is like asking a bunch of dudes in a boobie bar if they like boobies.

    That iPhone CPU question is sorta confusing, since the iPhone+iPhone 3G runs an underclocked 400(something)Mhz, while the 3GS runs at 600(something)Mhz.


    I got 70%....

    Yeah I checked Wikipedia afterwards and it states that the 2G/3G have 620 MHz clocked at 412, and the 3GS has 600 MHz. Neither match the 640 MHz stated in the quiz.

    I got 75%. The ones I got wrong were where the Steves met, first portable, Dvorak switch, iPhone CPU, and keyboard connector.

    I'm a big dummy ... 50 percent

    Though I dispute the "first" portable answer. I thought the reason Apple came out with an all-in-one Lisa was so you could move it around. Compared to a Kaypro, the Lisa WAS portable. (And the toaster Macs had "convenient" handles on the top.
