Have you ever wonder why Mac users always tell you Mac is easier, Mac is so much better. Honestly, if Macdonald’s thinks Mac is easier, who else won’t think so?
@smalera shared the above twitpic of a configuration guide for Mac donald’s Free Wifi Setup. Looking at the number of steps you need to setup the free wifi, how can you say that Mac is not easier and faster? What’s worse that Windows XP and Vista have very different setup, confusing to the users I’m sure.
Are you a Mac or PC user? How true is that for you? After reading I feel that most of them are pretty true. I’m a hybrid to be honest. For 9 hours on weekdays I will be using Window Laptop, but 5 hours on weekdays and 12 hours on weekends I will be on my Macbook Pro.
But of course, I’m measuring myself as a Mac user, because I will most definitely hope to use my Mac for work if I could. Some of them are pretty true for me. Let us know how true is this infographic is to you!
We have seen iPod Touch vs iPhone 4, so how about the up and coming Windows 7 Phone? Android and iPhone have been fighting quite some time. Let’s see how the early version of Windows Phone 7 is compared to iPhone 4.
In this video from Pocketnow, you will be able to see how different iPhone and Windows Phone 7 in Concept and behavior.
iPhone 4 vs Windows Phone 7
So after watching the video which kind of phone concept do you prefer? I think Windows Phone 7’s Concept is very new, it is something that we haven’t seen from any smartphone out there, but it is really as usable as iPhone? It is very hard to tell now.
Microsoft just launched a new PC vs Mac site telling users why they should choose Windows and buy a Windows PC/Laptop rather than Mac. They have categorized the reasons into 6 main groups, mainly “Having Fun”, “Simplicity”, “Working Hard”, “Sharing”, “Compatibility” and “Choice”.
Microsoft Reasons why You Should not choose a Mac
Mac might spoil your fun, not allowing you to do things out of the box.
Mac take time to learn
Mac don’t work as well at work or school
Mac don’t like to share
Mac might not like your PC Stuff
Mac don’t let you choose
My Reasons why I think they are wrong:
Mac is full of fun, out of the box I have iTunes, one of the best media organizing app, iMovie, one of the easiest to use video editor, iPhoto, one of the best photo App. There are tons of very useful and stunning looking Apps like Safari, Final Cut, Skitch and Toast.
I was a new Mac user 1.5 years ago, and I took only 1 week to learn using Mac. Although I am still learning everyday, but using a Mac is completely different from Windows. You will still learn new things everyday although you might have use Mac for years.
Mac work very well with Office work and School work because I used it for both. During my Schooling days, most of my assignments are done on my Macbook Pro. I have Eclipse, CyberDuck, TextEdit, Evernote, OpenOffice to do my school work. I use Parallel for my Office work where it is a all Windows Environment with no issues at all.
Sharing is the easiest in any Mac computer compare to Windows. I can easily share Network, DVD-Drive, Harddisk, Folders, Files. There is even a dedicated Sharing area on Mac to ease your Sharing needs.(I love it)
Mac Love PC Stuff, I can never use Windows as easy as now, with Parallel.
The last point Microsoft got it quite right, Mac don’t let you choose. We are quite limited by the Processor, Hard disk, RAM, Optical Drive chosen by Apple and we don’t have much say. They are right, but for end consumers, I just hope my laptop works as simple as possible and never lag, and this is what I got from Macbook Pro. No hours of troubleshooting like my PC Days(I’m a PC users for more than 18years)
Yes, I might be biased, but I am speaking from my thoughts after using Mac for 1.5years or so.
One common problem we have last time in PC is that they don’t come with Web Camera, and we need to purchase them. Nowadays most Laptop/Macs comes with built-in WebCam, but they are normally unable to move and shift. Thus you will be shifting your laptop/macbook if you need it to point to another direction.
iWebCamera now allow you to stream video capture from your iPhone to your PC as a WebCam! Now you can point to anywhere you wish to film with ease and without the problem of shifting your laptop as a whole!
Some of their feature:
● Turn your iPhone into a real wireless webcamera. ● Two quality options. ● Instant-Pause mode, stop streaming instantly and resume whenever you want without exiting your host application. ● Plug and Play ready, install the Windows drivers and you are ready to go! ● Built-in manual. (Also available on the iWebcamera homepage) ● Beautiful User interface fully translated in English and German. ● Compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP.
Do note that they only support Windows Machine now, and it is just plain misleading that they film the ads which a Macbook Pro but it is running Windows.
iWebCamera is available in App Store now at a promotional price @ $4.99
