That video must have been taken with an Apple device. It shows sideways on a Window PC. :)

Sorry, it was, and I do not know how to right it, if someone knows, please let me know.

Thanks,

Obviously, a few of us do. :crazy:  But if it'll make you feel better, my wife and daughter have Apple devices. I once had a UNIX machine at work with both a Windows and a Mac emulator. I didn't see any real advantages of the Mac. :laugh2: Why doesn't Apple  teach users how to hold an Apple device or else fix their photo software/hardware?
 
PS: The video was funny, almost as funny as Tore's hammer.

I'm convinced the biggest hackers are Apple folk, pissed off at Bill Gates, hacking Windows to get even.  :laugh2:

Trust me, Simon has all the weapons at his disposal, and he knows not only how to use them.

For "stealing" the Windows concept from Jobs/Apple. That is to say, Gates marketed Windows as open-source and Windows became the worldwide defacto PC platform for a looooong time, making billion$, while Apple marketed their product as proprietary and thereby limited what apps were available for a long time. Of course Apple has done well since then but missed out on billion$ due to Gates staking his claim the way he did. Like I said, I think some Apple fanatics are still grinding their axes and do all they can to bring down the mighty Windows empire by creating viruses to attack the Windows OS.

 

It's either that or something else. :D

Richard, I think Apple did learn their lessons. The iPhone has a vast volume of apps over Android phones. More apps tend to be written for iPhone than Android, so it's Android that is trying to catch up. Being proprietary isn't in Apples' favor since Android is open to qualified hardware vendors.
You can quote me.

This is a race report thread, guys. If you want to discuss tech, start a new thread elsewhere please.
