Here is a little story I wana share with ya.. True story. ^^ Last august, I got my sister a laptop for the new school year, and from the laptops that I want her to get, she pull it up a notch and made me pay for a way more expensive Ibook. XP and she made me pay for a Ipod *which wasn't as popluar yet* as well.

At that time, I didnt see the protental to apple yet, but since my sis got an apple laptop instead of the sony laptop which I was goona get her, I also made a switch with my sony investment to apple. *which at that time they are both around $31 dollars* I hold on to my apple til just last week when it hits $74 while that said, I was looking back at sony last week when I sold my apple shares Sony was at $36.

So as of right now...

In a business point of view

Apple Beats Sony 72 to 36 !!! XP

Apple is beating Sony so Bad that it makes their head spin... @_@ Sony very much got its butt handed to them... lol... XD

So now after all said and done,

who do you like more ? ^^

-Apple "Ipod & Ipod shuffle" vs. Sony "Mini disc/ CD / mp3 walkman".
-Apple "Ibooks and Mac computers" vs. Sony "vivo laptop and PC computers"
-Apple "Itune store" vs. Sony recording company
-Apple Flat Screen Displays vs. Sony Flat Screen Displays
-Apple aapl Investments vs. Sony sne investments

Both apple and sony make good things. It's really a matter of preference. I think the reason for the apple stock is mostly due to the iPod. I'm thinking sony will probably go up once the next playstation comes out, but I may be copletely wrong.

Well, I'm hoping to make the move to MacOSX later on in the year, but have used more Sony stuff in the past. I find them good quality, but they really make you pay the upper limit for some of their hardware.

Mind you at one time that Sony had shares of over $315 dollars at one point before dipping off the Blue Chip market, realizing that Sony was over-inflating their profits too high, I should know because my friend is a portfolio manager for stocks as the marketer and I'm an accountant - so we both know our fair knowledge of stocks for sure.

But anyways - lol - that was old times. Could say the same for companies like Enron as well - though Enron was evil - evil I tell you! **Points her fingers at them and still keeps laughing**

Oh - what rocks - Apple or Sony? I would say both - though I dunno. I love Apple's innovation, and Sony's securities, so it's a good call of preference here.

As everyone knows, the iPod totally kills any sort of portable music device that sony makes. However, I can't just vote for all apple stuff. They do have some great ideas, but their closed architecture and high prices are their achilles heel. Sony's consumer electronics tend to be overprices compared to the competion as well. Sony's computers aren't bad (I haven't used them much), but at least they are x86 based.

Wow, this one is actually a hard decision for me... Sony has always been my choice for top quality electronics, but Apple makes some of the coolest stuff in computers... For this poll, my vote goes to Sony

For computers, I would prefer Sony between the two. For MP3 players, I would prefer Apple. Sure Apple's iPods have a huge place in the market, there are always alternatives, and I would usually go for those alternatives instead.

I didn't vote ^^; Because personally, I haven't really tested the two comparatively before.... So I can't say.... ^_^'

And you bought your sister an Ipod? @_@; My parents won't pay for it. They don't like throwing a whole bunch of money out at once...

I think it is wrong to compair the two in terms of shares and value. Apple may be better at marketing new products (like the iPod), but apple computors iratate the hell out of me - mainly because of their single mouse button interface (how can people live with out a scroll wheel?) and there idea that everything has to be done there way (like the one-way transfer rule on iPods, but the people winamp sorted that one out).
On the other hand, while sony many some of the best laptops (i am using a vaio at the at the moment which has not had any problems in the 2.5 years i have bashed it arround) but some of their other devices don't live up to this standard. In terms of mp3 players, i would go with Creative every time. The Zen Micro outsrips the Mini iPod in every way (as it was designed to).
Ok, so sony and creative may not be as good when it comes to marketing and style, but in terms of quility of the product, they win every time.

P.S. i know i am going to get some major flaming for writing this, but this is my view.

I picked the "they both suck" option, because there was no "I don't really care" option :-)

i buy what fits my needs the best and seems like the best value. I don't buy "brands". I do rather dislike apple, for the reasons Jim3535 mentioned above, but I wouln't *not* buy Apple, if they really had something I was interested in. iPod? Nah. iBook? No, I run Linux, and I get a lot better value running that on x86 hardware.

Anyway. Answer for me is "neither".

I've had a sony md portable, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't really any better than generic portable cd player. I bought a 3rd gen iPod 2 years ago, and HOT damn! its great. :D

I've never used a Sony Vaio desktop or laptop, so I can't say one way or the other, in comparing it against the iBook that I'm using. But, against the previous Compaq presario, or Dell Latitude laptops I've used in the past - iBook all the way.

I'm a Mac enthusist, but with good reason. After nearly ten years of using intel based machines with microsoft os systems - I just got fed up with the peecee crap offered. XP

Okay, here's a question, why buy a computer that MOST software won't run on?


The iPod is nice and all, but for $400 I can buy a Sony MD *which I have* and 300 MP3's. Explain this one to me, why is a mini iPod $250? 4 gigs for $250??? 20 Gigs is $299, I'm sorry but the mini needs to be cheaper, there is no way Apple can justify that price. Apple is so over priced and overrated it's not funny. I'm glad people are starting to file class action suits against Apple for their proprietary music files from iTunes, THAT CAN ONLY BE played ON AN iPOD!! Yeah, and Apple fans will be like "that's just great business" but if Microsoft embeds Windows Media Player or IE in Windows, these same people scream "That's not fair!!" . Then there is the issue of battery life in iPods, Apple deliberately designed the iPod's battery life to degrade over time, to make them "disposable". So, apparently they're just meant to be more landfill fodder. I just can't figure out how you can justify something that's half of the average wage slave's monthly income as disposable! Oh that's right, Apple targets the affluent, not the common wage slave....my bad.

Those who think an Apple can outperform a PC, yet another myth. PC's can now out perform Apple on benchmarks. The only thing Apple really has going for it, is slick marketing campaigns.

lol... thats what I told my sis when she make me folk over like $1500 + dollars to get her an ibook... XP *thats a big pain btw* XP

I personally uses a sony laptop myself and I think it rocks, but apple has this thing call a virual pc which basically makes your mac comp. runs pc stuff + its mac apps. so in a sense its the same as any pc + its user friendly and most importantly *idiot prove* ^^.

The benchmarking overclocking prosessor isnt what a normal computer user cares for, who cares if your computer has a 2+, 3, or even 4 ghz prosessor if the proformence sux and its not stable when it runs your apps. XP apple if theres anything they do right is that their system is alot less buggy in their computers stuff and not to mention must software dont need that kind of overclocking speed to run it.

Apple of course can't match the pc market hands down but they are not trying to compete with pc and also either is this question. ^^ its product wise whos better sony or mac. ^^

And of course apple has that cool factor marketing thing and the large fan base going on thats sucking up more and more costumers. so I think eventually Apple will be back to the top of the market again.
