I think MS should use apples iphone marketing scheme against them. I want to see a windows commercial that touts the number of windows "apps" compared to mac os apps :D Just to poke fun at them, but then again, I'm sure apple would throw a temper tantrum and try to sue because they have 5 more apps than microsoft stated in the commercial, much like they did with their laptop hunter ads.

Yeah unfortunately apps are still what moves most iphones/ipods.  people are obsessed with retarted apps.  I'm still waiting for apps on my zune hd :P.

Why are we once again talking about the Iphone???  For one, it's a cell phone.  Yeah it's "smart" & yeah we know how many people, including Will Smith have a love affair with it.  But it's not a PC.  For two, It's an Apple product.  NOT A PC!.  Does that mean I would be ok with Android news? No, (even though I use a G1) I would not unless it's for the OS going to a PC.  Would I be ok with Win Mobile news?  Nope, unless they can port it to a PC.

I'm basically  wondering when this site turned into Wired or a technology site.  I mean it's all great information, but if you guys on the writing staff don't have any PC news or articles to write about, why not write some new guides or something.

Read editor-in-chief Will Smith's article in the October 2009 magazine.  He touched on this issue.  Cheers.

I know, that's why I commented like I did.  I mean if they wanna change the format of the magazine/site to Maximum Computer or Maximum Technology, sure throw in the Iphone crap.  But until they do, this is Maximum PC...I don't like thier efforts being wasted on the Apple Gateway Drug.

90,000 of which are completely useless!

Making 10,000 useful? Hardly. I'd say maybe around 200 are decent.
