AS much as I like Google, bing is actually a great cross-check when you need info.Problem is people don't wanna give it a chance. I think if everyone that loves porn gives bing a chance, we can have an overnight shift in market share.
[citation][nom]back_by_demand[/nom]This one will have Apple and Microsoft fanboys blowing steam out their ears like a screaming kettle. How do you resolve such hatred against your perceived enemy when the companies in question buddy up.Either the hate is going to end and we all go into the future on the crst of a wave of technological love, or they will be so bitter and twisted they will give up using computers altogether and go back to reading "guns & ammo".But just imagine for a minute, close your eyes and have a dreamy rose-tinted view of the future if Microsoft and Apple collaberate for the betterment of the industry.1) Games that work on Apple. Not ported. Not 6 months after PCs - Native.2) Software compatability. Universal.3) Apple computers being cheaper.4) PCs looking beautiful.Sure its a pipe dream, but whats so bad about that?[/citation]
Your an idiot. And that is really all I have to say.
Apple and Microsoft have had a coopetition relationship for a long time. The same with IBM, with both parties. This type of relationship is nothing new for either of them. It's not the start of a new era, but merely business as usual applied to a particular situation.
Instead of trying to physically fight Google and their search engine, they need to give people a good reason to switch on their own. Forcing your customers to use something they are not accustomed to is not the way to win over a fan base. If the product is strong on its own, then people will at least look at it and maybe switch. Make your customer believe that your product is superior and better than your popular competitor instead of just forcing the switch.
Is that why I don't see any more Mac vs. PC ads? I didn't think I'll like Bing until google was having problems. I loaded Bing up tried it for two weeks, and made it my default. It seems a little more snappier and more organized than Google right now. I still use Google, but not as much anymore.
I can't help but imagine, Microsoft is the mouse, Macintosh is the cat.
The cat will catch the mouse, but will never eat it, The cat just wants to play.
However, the mouse is afraid of the cat because it knows how sharp a cats teeth can be.
If Microsoft wanted to destroy Macintosh, they would have.
And by the way, my Crysis rig is way sexier than anyy Mac (granted their server case is pretty sweet, assuming an acrylic side and painted black).
