There has been some talk about the comparisons tween Apple and the usual assoted Wintel boxes. One thread in general is the DO or Die for apple in newyork. Recently there has been posted in various web sites of the actions that Hotmail has taken against their users by enabling certain options that share users information behind members backs. I have a hotmail account and will be ending it. I imagine that this is the least of sins done against loyal Wintel users. Still I find it ignorant and disgusting not to mention outright and blatant abuse. Certainly this outright disregard for privacy among the other moral issues that M$ has shown a weakness in, makes it very clear that processor speed and hardware specs are not the true issue. That is the rift tween the two companys. It is beginning to seem to me that MAC's are not the best computers, they are the ONLY ones that are a viable choice.
