most apple followers dont understand this. I know the normal ones in these threads do but they do skew their argument to fit their needs a lot of times and makes it sound like they dont. Gman on the other hand it just a guy that rides a short bus.

I am still amazed Apple sued Samsung, the company that makes their processors. Their sue happy arse is about to get burned.

well hopefully your good luck continues.. I take comfort in knowing should I have any issues they will be fixed and fixed fast at no expense to myself..

No but they did buy all the materials to make said hardware so other companies can't.

Hence aluminum and certain types of nickel.

So the iPhone 5 costs more than my mortgage payment and it does 3 more unique things than the iPhone 3GS. Big fricking deal. You people are dumb for going out and buying this shite as soon as they come out.


I've sold my iphone on ebay a few weeks before the new one comes out and i usually make enough to only have to pay maybe 50 bucks for the new phone. Sometimes i make a profit after i by the new phone.

If only we all would have listened to Forrest Gump. He said to buy Apple, and if you would have put $10k in the day the movie came out, you would have nearly a million dollars now.

I have a buddy that said early 2000's he had some apple stock (not alot) but sold it to pay for an abortion. we did do the math though and I think he still came out ahead vs. cost of raising a kid

Samsung Galaxy SIII for the MFW.

The market for overpriced under-performing status symbols is going away, unless you're an OT balla.

apple has used the same plug since I can remember for its devices.. i remember when everyone went from mini USB to micro USB..
I do not recall there being a huge consumer backlash. other manufacturers used to change plugs all the time. (see samsung)



Everyone that has those nice docks with speakers and expensive stereo receivers with ipod docks just got fricked.

You don't even know what it does yet so this is a retarded statement.

hey don't need it. Most people most of the time surf the web and check email. Something tablets are perfectly suited to do.


I don't think that tablets are really suited to surf the web as well as a laptop

Wha?
in my case i dont think they are either. when am i surfing the web the most. when i am sitting or laying on the sofa. with a laptop i set it in my lap. with a tablet you have to use both hands to hold the fricker. how are you going to jerk off?

One Apple product, something that didn’t exist five years ago, has higher sales than everything Microsoft has to offer. More than Windows, Office, Xbox, Bing, Windows Phone, and every other product that Microsoft has created since 1975. In the quarter ended March 31, 2012, iPhone had sales of $22.7 billion; Microsoft Corporation, $17.4 billion.

The iPhone alone is worth more than all of Microsoft

Comparing the sales of the iphone (hardware) to anything Microsoft sales up to this point (software) is like comparing the sales of a Ford Focus to a Boeing 757.

Now when the Surface tablet hits then give it time and we will have more of a baseline for comparison between it and the iPad.
