Rewind six months ago - I gingerly opened my new iMac thrilled with the prospect of a user-friendly experience. My iPhone would sync nicely - my kids would be able to do schoolwork - my home videos would be nicely edited and organized and my iTunes would stream wonderfully to my home audio... Hogwash. (rant font on) User friendly is a joke. Go ahead - put a novice in front of a mac and tell them to open internet, navigate to Pandora and play their station over an external audio system. They CAN'T!!! They first must get an airport express (unless your home audio rack is right next to your iMac) Even if it is they still must get an toslink adapter for the Apple (stupid mini-jacks!) You are now out $150... What fun! User friendly my big toe. But wait - You still can't hear Pandora on the stereo! The fun continues! Now you need to purchase and install AiFoil - because the airport only receives iTunes signals. Another $25!!!! Yippee fun! If you are lucky - and read that L U C K Y, your Airport Express will actually receive the music and transport it to your audio system. Luck has more to do with it than anything. Just look at the Apple support Airport Express forums and you'll see that a substantial number of consumers have difficulty with their airport NOT working. (Apples response is a big blank NOTHING. Then they have the audacity to pick on VISTA for spending on advertising instead of fixing their product!) Contrast that with a PC - out of the box I can plug it into coax out and voila - ALL sound is transported via my 35ft cable to my audio source. Total additional costs and software: $0. And it works ALL the time. Don't even get me started on their confounded mouse, dismal integration with my networked storage, inability to swap files with other networked computers (XP and Vista) and lack of support for SONY video camera software.... (rant font off) OK. Got that out of my system. No somebody please explain to my why I shouldn't just build me a new PC, put XP on it, and put the iMac in storage? My primary gripe is the dismal support for getting music to my home audio system. I've bought all the goods - even changed out my wireless router. Still - it is hit and miss getting the audio to my stereo. I must reboot the iMac, reboot the Airport 'Depress' (as I like to call it), restart Airfoil, etc. Right now even that does not work... I am so sick over this I can't begin to describe. I've posted to their support forums many times and been ignored by apple (just like countless other consumers). I've called their support desk and been told 'sorry'. I feel ripped off by Apple big time... I've been iHozed.
