If you want to believe you can live in a world that there is no APPLE / IPOD existed, that fine with me. However, I live in the real world and has to be true to myself. I am not an Apple fans, but nor would I blindly oppose a company because I am not on their side. I am here on the believe that Abi share the same feeling that I have - or at least this is what I read from the about page.

You are right, 'OEM' originally stands for 'original equipment manufacturer'. However, it is also used to refer to the equipment that is from an 'original equipment manufacturer', and the action of an 'original equipment manufacturer' making the equipment for other companies.

More examples of words that often carry multiple meaning: MP3, RMA, etc.
no need to stick the apple and 'about' comments in my face but that aside, thanks for the info. i now understand how you were using OEM (as an adverb instead of a noun).
