Apple is a huge competitor in the space Windows Media Center seeks to inhabit. Evidence?
Front Row and Windows Media Center
Apple TV and Media Center Extender
But even though I want to compare and contrast these products I find myself always holding back.
Because of the signal to noise ratio. On the somewhat rare instance I do post something related to Apple it almost never fails that folks show up bringing nothing to the conversation of value. Case in point, go read the two comments on Thoughts on iPod Amnesty Bin. After reading those I again had to ask myself 'why bother'.
Mary Jo and Long are beginning to understand the pitfalls of writing anything other than high praises of Apple.
So, I ask myself would it be worth the time and effort to give my perspective of MacOS, iPod and AppleTV or will I be labeled as just another Apple hater who works for Microsoft. Can I count on the community (both PC and Mac) to engage in the conversation?
