    apple sells computer - gives away software



    Is that why less than 3 months after buying my Mac Mini it's charged me close to a hundred pounds for something that looks like a very minor service pack to the operating system it sold me?

    Or why every week since I registered iTunes I get an email desperately trying to get me to buy music that's way too expensive given it's quality and durability compared with what's on offer elsewhere?

    Apple are successful but it's because their stuff looks sexy, desirable and REALLY EASY TO USE. Microsoft's looks jaded and overly-complex by way of comparison and unfortunately Mr Clippy is NOT the right answer to making something more sexy and usable!
