    Eh, the iPhone works just fine with windows pc's. Now a wp with a Mac is more like your analogy. I lived that and it was no fun.

    You know what it works but to get the most out of the experience its best to match both products

    Sky drive + Office - being able to move and manage files between mobile and work

    Live - Account synchronization

    Xbox - social networking, earn achievements, play games on the go and continue

    Music - Zune Pass for devices

    Windows 7 you can say "yeah it works good with the iPhone" but moving forward Windows 8 you defiantly want the same Metro UI experience ecosystem wide.

    So this is my selling point this is how I convince iPhone owners with PC's just trying to help out :)

    Really?

    I've had no problems whatsoever.

    I have a Windows PC also, but if Microsoft doesn't continue to provide support for Mac they'd be crazy. They could very well lose a fair number of customers like me who prefer Mac OS X, but also prefer Win Pho to the iPhone.

    OK... granted we're probably a very small population but still....:happy:

    Well, iTunes sucks on Mac and is worse on PC. Granted this is an opinion, so take it for what it's worth. I wish iTunes had drag and drop to sync with multiple phones. Well maybe I don't, if they had that, I might not be so frustrated with my iPhone and wishing for WP8.

    No Macs for me. If I want something Unix-based, I'll run Linux.

    My work machine is a 21.5" iMac running Windows 8 Professional via Boot Camp; Apple makes the best Windows machines EVAR. It used to run Windows 7 and I used to have an iPhone, but... I wouldn't want to run an iPhone with Windows 8 Pro.

    I never had a problem syncing my HD7 WP7 handset with Mac OS X Lion, with the connector app, the only problem I had was setting it up right to begin with.

    Quit with the dramatics. Using an iPhone with a PC is fine.
