I really hope the name is something other than "iPad Mini".

See, this is your problem. You assume all criticism is "opposing fanboy" criticism, when really it's just logical people wondering why this shite is necessary (or why people feel like it is, rather). Your immediate response is Apple-defensive and Other-Company-offensive.


It's market comparison. Pretty common in business. Sorry you think capitalism is sad.

It's just funny that both times someone made a statement or asked a (non sunshine pumping) question about the product, he immediately tried to throw Samsung, Motorola, or HTC back in his response to compare. Very telling IMO.


because they are Apple's competition, do we not measure just about everything based on common competitors? Least of which this boards main focus, college athletics.

I've been doing the same thing talking LSU this year. Random bandwagon fan, "LSU sucks this year, what's their problem?" Me:"Uh, they've only lost one game this year to the #2 ranked team on the road. Meanwhile beat the #3 team at home and another top 20 team on the road."

It's not. It's you being defensive. When I came in here and agreed with the guy who said "Isn't that basically an iPhone?" you got all pissy and asked why I wasn't saying that shite when Samsung released theirs or whatever.

Well, since I did say:

I don't blame the companies for making/selling these things, because people will buy them regardless

..clearly that's what I think. That capitalism is bad. You ignorant frick.

Sorry I hurt your feelings.

Nobody is talking about competition or comparisons though. Rouge's comment was how many different shades of lipstick can they use on a pig. What he means is that they keep basically packaging and repackaging the same shite over and over, just in different sizes. Yet here you are coming in and asking him about all these other companies. I'm sure he feels the same way about those too.

YOU'RE the one making comparisons to other companies. We're simply pointing out the oddness that it seems to be the same shite just in different sizes. As much as I don't give a shite about Apple or Samsung or any of them really (I do have an iPhone though), those commercials nail Apple products (and fanboys) on the head. it's like "Yeah, it's the same product, but this one is smaller than the iPad and bigger than the iPhone...mind BLOWN." There really is some truth to that.

Seriously though, i pointed out why an iPad mini isn't just an iPhone. 6x more screen real estate. Also it runs iPad apps, not iphone apps. Thanks for ignoring the pertinent part of my response.

Right. So it's exactly the same as an iPad, only a few inches smaller.

OMGAWESOME.








ETA: What's the difference between "iPhone apps" versus "iPad apps"? Don't the very vast majority of apps work on both products?

Car companies do that with the internal combustion engine, but no one is discussing that.

I agree with this. I have an iPhone mainly because I bought my first one in 2008 and just don't feel like learning a new OS. I happen to like Apple's OS and really don't give a shite if touching phones "magically" transmits a playlist......

Like you said, a little funny at first, but the repetition has just gotten sad.....move on Samsung..... (Actually I'm sure the S4 will be out in a couple of months, they are worse than Apple now with how fast they release new phones).

This is getting awesome. I never really participate in these Apple threads too often, but you are showing me why people are entertained by them.

So basically, your answer is to try to throw every other company undet the bus because Apple is making the same products over and over?

Fantastic.

I'm not sure anyone's commented that their, "mind [has been] BLOWN," by this stuff. I think that's you with a conditioned response to people who take interest in Apple products and start threads here. Or maybe its a conditioned response to people who take interest in Apple products in general.

Either way, the amount of criticism he takes here compared to the level of vitriol missing in his responses is something that is readily apparent to anyone who keeps up. If it isn't, then it should be, or folks should just cop to ignorance of the track record here on the OT re: these subjects.

The guy takes flack-CONSTANTLY-for merely being informational and posting about this stuff and defending his viewpoints without the level of idiocy, snark and sarcasm that comes back at him.

Yet now you're trashing him simply because he's been a bit conditioned to respond that way no matter what, when in reality, he should've divined out of thin air that you're some above it all arbiter of technology for the layman consumer in America.

Look I own an iPhone 5 and an iPad 2-as does my wife-and we also own an HP laptop and a Sony VAIO laptop. As well as an HP Printer. So while I am a bit of a fanboy, I'm also straddling the PC/Non-Apple world as well.

Just lay off with your sanctimonious holier-than-thou attitude. You sound like a bitch.

all iphone apps work on the ipad, but either in a tiny window or scaled up. iPad apps only work on the iPhone if it s a universal binary made for both.

Far from throwing them under the bus. I'm pointing out that most every company makes nearly the same product over and over. Have you seen how many SKUs appliance makers have for refrigerators, washers, dryers, freezers, lawnmowers, weedeaters, printers etc. Apple has 5 iOS products and that's waaaaaay too much IYO. Just take a look around and apply the same logic to other products.

ETA: Especially the consumer electronics industry.

That comment was about the commercial, and how there is some truth to it. I sure hope nobody's mind is blown with a smaller iPad.

So it's my fault that he catches shite on here about Apple?

I simply don't understand what's great about a smaller iPad. Literally, that's what I don't understand. Yet his response (to not just my comment) is to throw Apple competitors at me and ask why I wasn't saying the same things about them. And had I been in or seen those threads, I likely would've said the same thing. Like I said, the fanboys on all sides are silly.
quote:

you're some above it all arbiter of technology for the layman consumer in America.

I am nothing of the sort. I am pretty ignorant when it comes to phone technology. I just don't care enough to keep up with it. I don't give a shite if people do...that's great.
quote:

Just lay off with your sanctimonious holier-than-thou attitude. You sound like a bitch.

Jesus Christ, you sound like Wiki. How am I sanctimonious or holier than anything? That doesn't even make sense. But feel free to go frick yourself if you want.
