In reply to Nate Hinkel
I am still seeing the same amount of no research being done in these kind of pieces.
Multiplan was rolled out with the original Mac in 1984 by M$. The following year they renamed the product 'Excel' and introduced 'Word' at the same time. For a few months we had MacWrite as our primary word processor. By the fall of '84' we were developing relational database applications on the original 128K Mac with tools like Omnis and Double Helix and 4D. We had a number of accounting applications available my mid 1985. Quicken appeared in 1985. Borland had several apps available.
So please don't insult my intelligence by stating that Office 98 and Office 2001 for the Mac finally allowed the Mac to do business things. We have been doing M$ office since 1985. A full ten years before Win95. Along with Pagemaker, Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark in 1985-86. Please get it right. Quit rewriting history already!

How much are you willing to pay for a new smartphone?
I'll pay $1.5K or more for the latest iPhone or Galaxy flagship phone.
I want the latest model, but I can't see paying more than $1K for a phone.
I'm content to buy a slightly older model in the $500 - $750 range.
I don't need an iPhone or Galaxy. I can find a really good phone for $350 or less.
Phone prices are ridiculous. I won't pay more than $100.
I don't have or want a smartphone.
