Yes, you are right. They did make a mistake. They built it wrong. What did they do right? They convinced you that instead you are holding it wrong.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Talk about Kool-Aid drinkers.
And for the record the alleged email from "Steve" read:
"Don't hold it that way."
PC World is biased towards Apple111!1!1!"
Chew on that irony for a while....

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. If you want a top quality TV you pay a little extra for the Sony or LG. If you want to save money buy an Emerson. If you want a top quality car buy a BMW or Mercedes. Or save money and buy a lower end domestic.
A $500 bargain laptop has $500 worth of quality. A $1000 MBA comes with an extra $500 of ease of use, reliability, and support. Apple has made it's niche providing products that for the most part just work, and you pay for it.
A free Nokia phone next to a $300 iPhone... well you get the picture. You get what you pay for.

It's so lame when people hate on something just because they've had issues, if that was case with everyone else then I think close to the whole world would hate on Windows and all the issues they've had and still have! If you want to bash on Apple why not go on to an Android forum or a Windows forum..? This is an Apple forum for people who enjoy Apple and want to talk about their products...not hate on them. Are you trying to get people to leave Apple by saying stuff like that? I really think you guys have nothing better to do and it's sad.
There's no reason to say all that stuff on here, a lot of us like Apple, that's why we're here talking about them. You can go ahead and reply and say what you will, I really don't care lol, I'm just tired of reading people putting down Apple...on an Apple forum...from people who own Apple products.

Just a heads up. Please keep it a clean discussion. Insulting other members is against the rules.
Debate is fine but keep it clean and clear of insults.

iOS multitasking calls for either a running state or a suspended state depending on the app that is calling on the function itself. So if you are running Pandora and press the Home button it drops into the running state. Launch a game and then press the Home button and it drops into the suspended state. It will pause. Depending on your available memory of course.

I asked to please keep it clean. This also means starting by calling names and calling someone that will start something.

We do this all the time in our office with the exact same specs and exact same features taking into account software you have to buy for a PC to match what comes free with a Mac and the difference is less than $200. Crappy PC builds bought at a 7/11 don't count btw.
Well you will let the trolls take over your posts and this site, won't you???

apples product are maaaggicaal.....cant you see??? hahah jk, but they are kindof the best only because the retina display and facetime and because it can be jailbroken....if the iphone could not be jailbroken I would probably burn it and let it die in the fire. But even having retina disply im really looking forward on getting an android phone next year(like the epic) I dont have an iphone but most of my friends do. and half of those friends are switching to android too. I just took a look at the "MYTOUCH 4G" and it beats the iphone! bigger screen, video calling on "4G", and many other specs. the only thing android phones lack is an appstore thats it. cuz if it had an appstore as big as apple then hands down android is the winner. but also the iphone is just so easy use its hard to pick Android or IPhone? The iphone to me is getting old in UI, imean the android has widgets and face it live wallpapers that do cool things, it looks like its from the future with the cool ui and face it the androids ui to me is kindof cooler and more futuristic than the iphones, the iphones Ui is getting old with that simple screen and boring lockscreen....so to me I would rather have an android rather than a IPhone, you must be thinking im no an apple "person" but your completely wrong im a apple FREAK! and I still choose android over iphone hopefully apple can change their game alittle.

The difference is I don't go onto Windows forums or Android forums saying how crappy I think their products are because I understand that that forum is for those products! If I have complaints about a product I go to the company. So I'm not looking too much into your posts, I just don't understand what the point of saying that kind of stuff on here is.

1.3GHZ Processor, 800Mhz Bus, 2MB Cache, 3GB RAM, Intel GS45 Graphics, 320GB HD. 7.4lbs, thickness not listed.
Entry level Macbook Air
1.4Ghz Processor, 800Mhz Bus, 3MB Cache, 2GB RAM, NVidia GeForce 320M graphics, 64GB HD. 2.3lbs, .7 inch thick.
Other than a larger hardrive (the cheapest and easiest to upgrade) where's this "vastly superior" you speak of?
Is the Dell cheaper? Sure, but it's specs, it's parts, it's portability and the quality of the parts used are all inferior to the Air.
Not to mention with the Air you're paying an additional premium for the weight and size. A more fair comparison would be to a $999 Macbook
Which would deliver
2.4Ghz processor, 1055Mhz Bus, 3MB cache, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 320M Graphics, 250GB HD and weighing just 4.7lbs.
You're entirely entitled to your "opinion" but your facts could use a bit of work.

LOL at the idiotic anecdotal evidence morons in this thread. "Waaa my MBP motherboard fried" "Waa, Apple products are too expensive" Waaa, waaa, I can build a $50 laptop by torrenting promo codes for Newegg and faking barcodes for mail in rebates and have a much more powerfull laptop" "Millions and Millions of people have all drank the koolaid, my MotoHTCRIMOkia has a tonne more features like it even takes CDs and DVDs"
Oh shut up. This was done by PC Magazine not TUAW or MACnn, so throw that bias ******** out the window. Also throw the anecdotal nonsense out too, nobody cares nor does it mean anything. The fact is of 79,000 people surveyed (not an insignificant number) Apple smoked the competition in reliability and satisfaction. So the small percent of wankers in here complaining obviously dont represent the true picture.
