And look at how hard that fight was. Android as a whole has the volume (I think), but I think most would say Apple remains the alpha in the industry, no? I'm amazed every time I go to a lunch and every lawyer/accountant/whatever at the table has an iPhone. The average person I know probably has 3000 dollars in Apple products, and these are relatively average folks.

It is either an amazing company or a cult, and if both, it is probably the latter because of the former.

You're calling people out for not owning the phone you like.

You're a clown.

Why is that dumb? It's the truth. The iPhone on its own is a really cool phone and thats is but when you have it connected to all of the other computing and media products you use on a daily basis it becomes much more than that.


There's no question you get more out of your iPhone if you own other Apple products. The people say otherwise don't own all these products and don't know what they're talking about.

I really didn't intend for it to turn into this but oh well

I was actually a fan of the palm phones and I'm pissed they didn't put up a better fight.

Nope....they all do it on their own wirelessly. All photos, texts, reminders, calendar appointments, videos, bookmarks, saved web pages, etc. If I do something on one device it happens on all of them.

The only time Apple users ever have to do this is when activating a new phone.

Yeah. I had the original iPhone and all the ones following up until the 4. It was around the S2 that I really noticed that not only were they matching or exceeding Apple in hardware specs and functionality, but also finally competing in the build quality as well. Since then I think it's been all Android; S2, Skyrocket, Galaxy Nexus, Note, and S3 have been better phones. It's a shame too many people are entrenched in their views to see it. And I give Apple all the credit in the world for the first few iPhones, they were simply better, higher quality phones to me. But not anymore.

Well that's just his point. Apple does it automatically for you and all sorts of useful stuff from your phone pops up on your computer with no effort on your part. Same way desktop stuff just shows up on the phone and your iPsd like text messaging. Messaging on the phone pops up on the desktop and iPad you can carry on your conversation from all three. Convenient as hell. Plenty of stuff like that goes o big and small. And they put more and more in with every update. . It's a big advantage of owning the product line over the competition.

It's similar, and I do use a lot of google software, but the Apple ecosystem is much more efficient and complete.

I think some users are becoming less intimidated by the switch as well
There has always been this silly myth that there is some sort of big learning curve with android like linux or something

Android wouldn't have the largest marketshare if the products were difficult to use

Not to mention, when you drop that piece of shite iPhone it will crack on BOTH sides. I can slam a piece of metal against a Galaxy III screen and it does nothing.
