    I know, I know. This is a Windows 8 site and this particular thread doesn't have anything to do with Windows 8 or Microsoft at all for that matter, but.....
    Since a lot of the Windows 8 / Microsoft news lately has been in a rather negative vane and because misery loves company. It's good to see Apple back in the news again

    Can you even imagine what one of those cute little Apple Devices might cost if they actually provided the factory laborers with decent conditions, a reasonable wage, some rudimentary benefits..... and, oh yeah, maybe stopped using child labor.

    A good opportunity for me, ref your first line!
    Maybe this also has little to do with Windows 8, or??
    I moved over to Windows 8 forums, with the introduction of the very first betas. At a whim, I abandoned my links to earlier Windows forums (Vista. 7. etc..) I am finding so little input for Windows 8, on any forums, that I am considering reversing the process and returning full time to Windows 7 forums.
    But, more in line with your post, I have even had the crazy notion of getting hold of a s/h machine and trying out some Apple gear, just for kicks!

    Foxconn also makes products for Microsoft and HP, so I guess this has at least something to do with Windows.

    Posts on forums can misrepresent the quality input, statistically.

    My attachment is a prime example. I have edited out names, as it is not my intention to slander another forum.

    Not the number of posts! 99% of these are not intelligent input but, remarks such as "I agree " even one "Ha! Ha!

    This forum has little input, but the garbage is missing so it all comes out equal
