Over the last year or so, I have been feeling as though apple has forgotten its roots. I am not going to stop using macs, because they are still better then any PC, but I would like to state my complaints in a public and open forum. My Problems with Apple INC. (mostly in regards to their Mac Pro and Mac Book Pro Line) 1) Apple has begun to nickel and dime the customer. I recently bought two Nvidia GT120's for my mac pro, neither came with any form of an adapter to use the display ports. These are $150 a piece graphic cards, and yet still, apple made me buy two $100 dual link DVI adapters! My old ati 2600 HD's came with two dual link DVI ports and a DVI to VGA adapter, for $130 a piece. 2) Apple has begun to ignore major software problems. Over the past year I have had more software glitches on my mac pro, then any other computer I have EVER used. iMovie doesn't show all my clips, iPhoto wont export my slideshow, final cut wont render, the list goes on. When ever I call apple care, Which by the way cost me $250 on top of a $4000 machine, they tell me that they do not have a solution and to wait for the next software update. I have an idea apple, Il stop payment on my mac pro next time, and tell you to wait for my new job. 3) Apple has recently enacted on a plan to screw customers with macs older then 3 or 4 years old. My 1 year old mac pro, again a $4000 mac, did not support open CL in Snow Leopard. The only graphic cards I can get to support open CL, cost over $400 a piece, and I cant run 8 displays with them. (I bought the mac pro with the intent to one day run 8 displays) I mean come on! I decided to wing it with the Gt120, and it gives me mouse errors ALL THE TIME. * mouse jump 4) Forcing users to download new software. Example; Itunes. If you want to use the itunes store you need to latest version of itunes. Not only that but you also need the latest version of Safari. I don't use safari, and I dont want to update something I don't use. And if you have ilife 08, every time you open a program you are greeted by a pop up window telling you how your old software blows and how you should buy the new one. I don't know about you, but I feel the apple I fell in love with has changed. And not for the better. they have become almost like Microsoft.... almost.
