Yeah Brent, Coke has been taking some big hits lately. They're being accused of making our kids here in the US overweight from all the calories and caffein it contains. Diet Coke anyone? (Apples are less fattening)

Same Down Under, BUT if you look at the graph and all, its not as if they are loosing ground, they are staying put and Apple/Google are making inroads.

Can you upsize that for me

I don't think coke is as innovative as Apple, Apple has been coming up with something really amaizng to its name something innovative and what we have been getting from Coca Cola is the same old black colored drink since the last few decades.

Funnily enough, diet sodas are actually linked to weight gain. In fact, I've read articles suggesting they are worse than regular sodas.
Study: Diet soda doesn't help you lose weight

True story here... I quit drinking sodas and I dropped 60 pounds over the following year, and went from being pre-diabetic to normal. It's not just the sugar in these drinks, but the kind of sugar. High fructose corn syrup is simply one of the worst things in our food supply, not just sodas, but sodas have an awful lot of it.

I know this is off topic, but I just had to add an "AMEN!" The most weight I ever saw my dad drop was 40 lbs in a few months simply by cutting out soda altogether. Pure poison.

That's great news. Diabetes is a destructive disease which can subtract years from one's life plus all the side effect problems it causes for the human body.

No kidding. I work in healthcare and I see it all the time. My situation is more interesting (man am I about to go off on a tangent here). I'd been drinking sodas pretty regularly since 16 or so, though at times I've tried to quit. But I just couldn't shake the craving. Several years ago, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, though I really only took it seriously about 4 years ago when I found out how badly I had it (one of the most severe cases they've ever seen... I would have been dead in months at that point if I didn't get it under control) (as a side note, you may have noticed that I'm not as irritable here as I was when I first joined the forums). Now... one of the hallmarks of sleep apnea is a craving for carbs. I thought that was nonsense... "I just need to try harder", I told myself. About 3 months after I finally got the sleep apnea under control, I was drinking a soda when I looked at it, realized I didn't want it anymore, and put it away. That was almost 4 years ago and I have only had half of a single can since. I can't tolerate the stuff anymore.

I've come to the conclusion that sodas are one of the biggest health hazards in this country today. I basically see that industry being where the cigarette industry was in the 50's or 60's. Denying denying denying how bad their product is for health, but secretly knowing that yeah, it is bad, but profits matter more. I think the country is slowly waking up to this.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Last thing I want is for coke to start making their drink neon purple.

Not surprising how Apple has overtaken them though, they've been making plenty of headway with their new releases, and it shows.

I am slowly starting to do only one soda a weekend if not 2 weeks. Ill see how long it lasts. Hopefully soon I can stop drinking the stuff all together. I used to be a huge soda drinker back in grade school. Now I am starting to get over the stuff. I just drink more water instead.

I drank 2 liters today..


On a positive note. I love my Mac! /thumbsup

I consider Apple to be the last real computer company. I never really liked windows and spent half my life using Linux and DOS before that. But IMHO Win8 LOL killed PC makers. I cant see how anyone would like Windows 8. Its the most un usable crap of mess I have never seen. I would revert back to using my Tandy1000 HX before going to Windows 8.

I hope Apple never goes down the Win8 user interface road with OSX.

I always find it funny whenever the luxury toy company that is Apple, breaks through some new financial milestone. I love Apple and all, but it just seems weird somehow. My money is still on Aramco being truly more valuable in an absolute and enduring sense.

"Interbrand bases its assessment on a combination of the company's financial performance, its role influencing consumer choices, and how well the brand lets a company charge premium prices and deliver profits."

Describes an oil company pretty well in my opinion.

My Mac is the best computer I ever had. I liked windows but hated the patches and other inconveniences. I got what I paid for with the pc. Apple has lots of great products, though they are expensive. At least it's quality.

As for the health discussion, I agree about soda, it's poison, and yes, diet soda is worse. I'm glad Coke isn't doing as well. If Apple lowered their prices some, and kept the quality, they'd be so far ahead of Coke and everyone else.

I've heard and read lots of negative reviews about win8, too. The problem with so many companies is, they have some good ideas but don't go far enough, some go too far, and most are so proprietary, nothing works with it. They're so filthy rich, yet they outsource and put out cheap quality products. At least Apple has quality. I love my MBP and hope to get more stuff from Apple when I can.

I Love My Mac! I finally got an iPad Air.

I went from a fairly fit (I'm always referred to as thin) 6'2", 180# to 170# in 6 weeks at the end of last year just by stopping drinking my daily afternoon can of coke. I did it purely to see how my body responded to the withdrawal of caffeine (never had an issue falling asleep, but now I fall asleep earlier than I want to).
