is why people are attacking Apple for doing what the US is famous for: litigation. Sue sue sue! There is no other nation as litigious as the USA. Don't blame Apple, blame the US culture. It's a disease down there.
Oh and for the no-mind that decided rather than share valid opinions he'd just call me a "fanboi" (what are you, 12?), I use whatever meets my needs with the best combination of features, quality, and price. I don't care what brand label it carries. I think it's as mindless and simple to blindly consume products because of their label as it is to bash products for the same reason. Only simpletons lionize or demonize in such broad swaths.
"What nicedoggy said. Android is bigger that apple, and growing larger every day. Price competition will cause apple to slide, and they will see a reduction in the number of units sold. It is only a matter of time."
Hahahaha!! Price competition will cause Apple to slide!? Seriously? Does no one think before they seek to slam? It's Apple that no one else can compete with on price, with the pads man.
"For decades, the only thing that made Apple less obnoxious than Microsoft was that Apple had a relatively insignificant market share. In philosophy and actions, they are of the same school.
Um yeah except MS makes products most people use because it's either their only choice or they HAVE no choice (corporate) or don't know any better. Apple makes products that people CHOOSE over other products. And if you think MS and Apple have the same philosophy... Then brother you know even less than it appears. Seriously, think deeply on it for a minute.
Apple never had more cash than the US government. That was an inaccurate statement based on a poor understanding of the facts. It's an illustration of the difference between a blogger and a journalist that blogs.
Have you guys not read about the legal wrangling between Apple and Samsung, where Apple is concerned at Samsung abusing their early looks at Apple products? Do you seriously think that if Apple were in the wrong, AUSTRALIA and ALL of EUROPE would be siding with them legally?
Sounds like y'all got a case of sour grapes. Apple isn't saying they're afraid of the Galaxy, they're saying Samsung violated Apples patents to make a competing product. So far the courts agree.
Everyone loves to hate a winner.
