Apple has been known for years for their almost flawless design and I have to admit their products generally do look good. This new "trash bin" thing however, looks like a disaster. If it came in a different color, it might look a bit better) It looks like they wanted to go for something totally different from the ordinary but really missed the mark here. I also hate the way apple prevents their products to be used by anything else than their products (or in many cases even their own products, a generation older product is not generally compatible with their latest product) I have to use a mac at work and also a pc, now my work pc has a normal 23 inch display and I wanted to use the mac's bigger and better Apple HD cinema display (I think it's at least 27 inch, may even be 30 inch) because I use the pc a lot more than I do the mac but I couldn't because the mac's display only as a mini display port connection on it (and its embedded into the display so you can't detach any cables from the display itself). My pc has a nVidia Quadro 2000 gpu in it and it of course doesn't have a mini display port output, but only two HDMI ports and one DVI. I tried to switch the gpu's between the pc and the mac but the mac refused to work on my normal pc display through a DVI connection. It seems the mac has to use a dual-link DVI in order to work so a normal DVI cable won't do the job. So I had to revert back to the original setup. But things like this infuriate me. Would it have been so hard to have a dvi or even hdmi connection on the Apple HD cinema display instead of only one mini display port connection? And why are all the cables on the display unremovable? What's the point in limiting the use of your display to only certain products? There's a lot of other stuff that apple has that's just plain stupid, one example is their new so called "magic mouse". Sure it looks pretty but that's where the good parts end. The worst is the bottom of the mouse. It has two long black slaps of plastic as the mouse's feet which are the ones that touch the surface you use your mouse on (pic of these is at the bottom of this post). Isn't the point of a mouse to have as little contact to the surface as possible which makes the mouse movement easy and smooth. So is this the best the highly regarded Apple design team could come up with, because every surface I've used the mouse on, it's just plain horrible. Why couldn't they just put four little plastic "feet" on each end instead of two long bars of plastic with as much surface connection as possible which leads to almost unusable mouse on any surface. I guess the designers were only worried how the mouse look from the top and not the bottom. And that is what I think what Apple is all about these days anyways, make the products look good and people will buy them (especially the ones who know nothing to very little about computers).
