    A survey conducted by CNBC.


    Half of all US households, own an iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac.The average US household has 1.6 Apple products.

    According to a CNBC's All-America Economic survey, 50% all US households, which is more than 55 million homes, own an iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac, and the average household has 1.6 Apple products.


    According to them, Apple buyers are usually male, college-educated, and younger.

    And apparently, a lot of them are parents:

    CNBC polled 836 Americans over the phone from March 19 to 22, and says its results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent.

    Is this so called Apple effect/phenomenon ever going to end?

      My household:

      MP3 Player: 120GB Zune ($100 cheaper than the high end iTouch)

      Surf the internet: PC/Laptop--no need for an iPad or iTouch/iPhone

      Gaming: Consoles/PC/Laptop--nothing more needs to be said.

      Turn on/off my lights: I use the fuck1ng light switch! Are you kidding me? We need an app for lazy people to turn on and off their lights? That's not clever or neat. If Apple wants to create something clever and neat, they need to create a work environment where their workers don't want to kill themselves turning out the next iproduct.

      I went with the 120GB iPod Classic.... should have went with the Zune....

      Tell me how is it? I mean, how can one describe the mess that is iTunes?

      I guess what I am asking is, on the Zune do you get to put your music in folders or organize it how you want it and not how the software dictates you do it...

      I keep master copies of all my mp3s on an external hard drive (most ripped by me as I've only purchased a few from the Marketplace). I have my Zune sync to that hard drive whenever I add to the library. It can be displayed by "Album" and "Artist" on the Zune itself. I don't know off the top of my head if you can make custom folders on your Zune or not as I've never tried.

      I really like the interface with the Zune software over iTunes (haven't used iTunes in several years). It is a lot better looking than plain jane iTunes in my opinion. You can use the Zune software as a media player to play your mp3s/watch videos as well. If you let the software sit idle and play your music, it will reach out to the internet and get pics of the bands being played and does a slideshow type deal until you move the mouse/hit a key. Your library will be displayed in the Zune software and you can pick those you want to sync to your Zune or a right-click option will allow it to never be seen again in the Zune software but remain in your library. Navigation through the menus is painless.

      When I got the Zune a few years ago, it was the cheapest for the size of the storage. Too bad MS dropped support for it. It's built like a tank. I've seen them still advertised on Amazon. They just aren't produced anymore by MS. Not sure about the HD version's interface with the software. I thought they were a bit too pricey for only offering 64GB. So, I never got one.
