    Mac Fanboy gets owned.

    Ok, a little backstory on this one. I frequent Bit-tech, which is a large forum for computer entusiasts and modders. As part of the site, they have a section known as "Industry News/announcements" where new stuff from computer hardware companies is posted.

    Last week, one of their admins, "CardJoe" posted a thread about how apple reccomended their users to get a stand-alone anti-virus. This statement has since dissapeared from Apple's knowledge base (hinting at a cover up...)

    anyway, a fanatical mac user enters the thread, he is known a "Ted Landry". He throws out idiotic views which could only come from someone who believes that anything that comes out of Apple's PR department might as well have come out of the mouth of jesus Christ, and throws in a couple of very odd statements as well.

    In this post, I will copy and paste one of his most idiotic statements, and we can all see how one of the other users compleatly owns him. If you want to see the full thread (it is worth a read, believe me), check it out HERE.

    Now, here comes the funny (originally on page 6 and 7)

    Ah, Apple certainly controls the market and has since 1976, except for a few years in the middle 90's. Most everything you do on a PC is because Apple made it possible, and brought it to the masses. The Personal Computer, Color Monitors, the Keyboard, the first 5.25 & 3.5 Floppy Drives, first Mouse, first GUI, first Plug and Play architecture, the Laser Printer, the CD-Rom Drive, first Motion Video architecture, FireWIre, first Palmrests on laptops, first Trackpad, the PDA, the WWW, Wireless, first usable MP3 player, first Multi-Touch Phone, etc, etc...

    The rest of the industry can't move a muscle until Apple makes a move... So learn to deal with it or join in the greatest social movement of our time.

    Apple

    That would be Chuntex, a.k.a. CTX.

    I don't even know where to begin with this. Keyboards existed well before Apple - hell, well before Steve Jobs was ever born.

    The first 5.25" floppy was developed by Shugart Associates, the first 3.5" was produced by Sony.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    Nothing to do with Apple - invented by Douglas Engelbart and developed by Xerox, from where Steve Jobs stole the idea.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    Not even close. The GUI was stolen by Jobs from, again, work done at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post
    First Plug and Play architecture
    that was IBM, as part of the work done on the Personal Computer/2

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    Xerox again, I'm afraid - the first personal laser printer was released with their Star 8010 PC

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post
    the CD-Rom Drive
    Sony again, with Philips helping out.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    That would have been the Motion Picture Experts Group, which gave us MPEG.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    True, two Apple employees worked on the development of Firewire, but they were far from alone. See here for the true story.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    I have no idea if that's true or not, but I doubt it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    Invented by George E. Gerpheide in 1988, and merely licensed by Apple.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ted Landry View Post

    The 1993 Apple Newton was predated by the Psion Organiser, which came out in 1984 - NINE YEARS before Apple's product.

    You're not even trying now. Developed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee at CERN.

    NCR Corporation and AT&T.

    The first mass-produced portable MP3 player was developed by Kane Kramer under the name MPMan.

    Okay, I'll give you that one.

    Congratulations - you got one right.

    I cant believe that an apple fan would be ignorant enough to lie to the whole internet that what they are doing now was created by Apple... Anyone who reads Dan Brown would know CERN created the WWW

    "I am sorry we all know that Apple invented the Geforce, because MacOS is the choice of top engineers and top programmers and Apple makes the worlds fastest computer. Way faster than any super computers. In fact 1 Mac Book Pro is as fast as all the computer running windows on the planet combined! You guys know nothing! Apple invented the web cam, speakers, music, movies, movie theaters, gaming consoles, Media Center, fire, Instant messaging. Without Apple Computers, you will still be in the stone age!
    Apple is white as it stands for perfections, and glows as it's a god. Apple super power machine created the world in 7 days. What did Microsoft invented? Nothing. Oh know, sorry I am wrong, they invented the terms "stealing" and "copying from other"!. "

    Wow, people are stupid.

    Sarcasm and imitation, not his actual views. He is making references to several other statements made by Ted in previous posts.
