quote: Bose reproduces sound the way they believe consumers enjoy sound they do no reproduce sound exactly as the source material but that's not necessarily a bad thing. They do sound good but they cost a fortune.
quote: Personally get a set of Energy Take and make sure to buy a high quality receiver. Get into the $599.00 receiver range and have your mind blown.
quote: Heres a tip if you can tell where the subwoofer is instantly when it thumps its not a good subwoofer.
quote: I certainly wouldn't call them "crappy." Bose makes great sounding speaker systems.
quote: They had completely blown my mind. I just could not believe such realistic sound could come out of those tiny speakers. I don't care for their marketing. I've experienced it myself.
quote: I could not care less about how Bose do it
quote: The ultimate goal is to enjoy the sound.Why would I care about anything else about those speakers?

I pointed out the exact opposite to be true.Open platform PC market is in decline.Closed platform "PC"-like Macs are gaining market share.www.cnbc.com ..

quote: Apple makes the bulk of its revenue from devices that don’t look like traditional personal computers. For the past couple of years I’ve been worried that it would wake up and decide the traditional Mac is a burden, and it should instead be in the business of strictly selling consumer devices. With its announcements two weeks ago in San Francisco, I can happily say that my fears haven’t come true. At least not yet.It’s been a while since Apple did a really exciting MacBook Pro launch. Much to my surprise, even the move to Sandy Bridge, the first quad-core in a MacBook Pro, was done without even whispers of a press conference. Apple threw up the new products on its online store, shipped inventory to its retail outlets, updated the website and called it a day. Every iPhone and iPad announcement however was accompanied with much fanfare. The MacBook Pro seemed almost forgotten.

quote: Mac sales ARE in decline, that is a simple fact.
quote: Intel did just release the 3rd generation Core i5/i7 processors
quote: Where as the Mac market is actually growing. Closed hardware platform.

quote: Considering that 80% of all smart phones sold now run Android and 13% are IOS, "Taking out the iPhone" isn't on anyone's agenda and doesn't need to be. Again, its not 2007 anymore. You should update your outdated fanboy rhetoric. Android has far more on IOS than a few features. So do WP8 and BBOS10.
quote: Once Google takes the phone to the next level, I'll consider it an innovation. However, adding some BS features to a phone like pausing a video when looking away or scrolling without touching the display are gimmicky features, at best.
quote: To this day, it is just companies like Samsung just riding on the iPhone's success and adding BS gimmicks.
