    The problem is you have yet to come up with one actual reason to back up your assertion that the hardware is well made. The other poster was at the very least actually posting honest technical critiques based on real experiences.

    My assumption was that you were an Apple user because that's how you were portraying yourself, which had nothing to do with your saying good things about it but your utterly tangential arguments and how you were portraying yourself.

    And I strongly disagree apple products are well made, infact I think they're horribly made and poorly designed and I've laid out why and you've yet to actually go against those.

    I told you to quit strawmanning, and you should listen to your own words and quit just making shit up to massage your own ego.

    Are you trying to uphold the Apple TV as some sort of great product or are you calling it a shitty product I can't quite tell from the context.

    I'll certainly agree with you there (I said I didn't think they were a good company). I wasn't planning on writing a Wikipedia entry on my opinions of Apple.

    Not if you use multitouch (which it is designed to use).
