Secondly, the Gateway computer had the edge if you knew ANYTHING about computers and these new dual core chips. In the laptop category again the windows machine had the edge yet, OSx still out performed it, PERIOD.
The authors don't agree. Again its not a benchmark of OS X vs Vista, the author is rather clear about that. But you are free to read whatever you want into it.

I have taken discrete math and data structures. Data structures will teach you about link list, sort trees and a few other things.
Oh my gosh you've taken discrete math and a basic course in data-structures! Oh my you are the expert now! Are you serious when you say these things? Are you a narcissist? The fact that you say "link lists, sort trees and a few other things" shows you have only very basic knowledge about the data-structures. But that is to be expected given your degree. What I don't understand is why you pretend to know more....not only that but degrade others? Truly odd.

None of which helps you to understand programming any better lol.
This is why you're not a programmer. Understanding data-structures is a fundamental aspect to writing efficient software. Given a set of operations on some data you need to know the most efficient data-structure to use. This means you need to know the standard data-structures, but also how to create new ones and analyze their characteristics.

Regardless, this is completely off topic. I would seriously suggest you get some help with your apparent god complex.


So, back to the topic. Apple as a company is a fad and the company like the stock is going downhill.

When times get bad people will stop paying extra for eye candy.

All tech will really suffer as the econmy gets tighter. lok at the tech just today. Even compani9es tend to put offf this type of purchase when they can delay it during tight times. This doesn't apply to just apples either but all tech comapnies but apples will hurt the worse because it is mo9re expensive and has lower sales worldwide.
