Apple Still On Top With Customers

Once again had ther customer satisfaction survey. Once again, Apple achieves scores that are far and away the highest for all vendors. The arcticle goes on to say "For Apple, in both the desktop and notebook sections of the survey, every single score is significantly better than the industry average for Windows machines. No exceptions."

"Apple's overall score for desktops is 9.2, and the closest competing score, Alienware's, is 8.8. Apple's overall score for notebooks, 9.2, is just as high, and the rest are even further behind: IBM and Fujitsu are the closest, at 8.4".

It does touch on how Apple owners may exaggerate the truth.."tempting as it may be to suspect that Apple owners are prone to exaggerate when asked subjective questions, they are much less likely to exaggerate the number of times a system needs repairs"

It does finish on a good note "Still, while we appreciate generous support and repair policies (from other compter companys), it's even better to offer top quality products and services, as Apple has done".

Well Think Secret has inside info on the next upgrade to 10.4 (10.4.3). The site saying that this build (Build 8F15) offers more bug fixes in a single update than some sources could recall in recent history. Coming in at a wopping 99.3MB so far. This update is one to kill a lot of known bugs.

Talk about bugs, remember that Zotob Windows worm? Well it seems like it infected the Division of Motor Vehicles offices throughout North Carolina early Tuesday morning. NCDOT, which employs about 14,000 people and is responsible for the second-largest U.S. state-maintained highway system (over 78,000 miles), runs Windows at all offices. They say their offices should be up and running again by Friday. that's funny, how much time and money did this worm cost them???

The Higher cost of a Mac would cost them much less in the long run, with no headaches, and worrys of viruses, worms, spyware, etc.... GET A MAC!!!
