quote: Their designs and iOS are just SO boring.
quote: 5 Reasons Chinese Consumers Should Avoid the iPhone 4Shttp://www.penn-olson.com/2011/10/05/china-iphone4...1. The Siri voice input feature doesn’t support Chinese2. The iPhone 4S looks the same as the iPhone 43. You’ll get Chinese email service support in iOS 5 anyway4. Still no choice of telcos in China5. Rival phones and OSes now much stronger
quote: That is really crappy of them to do. It will be interesting to see how Tony Squash and the other Mac zealots spin this behaviour.
quote: What do you think about Apple's decision to put Siri into the new device, remove Siri from the app store and disable Siri for those that currently use it on older devices so the only way to use it is by buying a new iphone.
quote: We want to run the software we want, when we want, and how we want without risking a "jailbreak".
quote: In this case, it will make a big difference for games that can be supported.
quote: How will people know which Apps their phone supports?!
quote: they would lose any direct comparisons, and the comparisons are meaningless.
quote: Most iPhone users don't even know the word "Android."
quote: So they're either have Downs or have been living in a cave?
quote: Here is a question - what is the top selling food mixer in the US? The second most popular? What about trying to name the top four manufacturers of DVD players in order of market penetration?
quote: Outside of the small minority of techie obsessives Android has no brand presence
quote: Just stop. It's so silly how you Apple people constantly need to marginalize, segregate, or outright discriminate people to make your points.
quote: Great endorsement you have there for the typical iPhone user's intelligence and knowledge of current events lol.
quote: Right, that's a pretty impressive statement considering Android outsells Apple handsets. I guess more people are "techie non normals" or whatever. It doesn't matter why, it only matters that they aren't choosing Apple.
quote: Most just buy a phone because they see an advert, the guy in the phone shop recommends it, they see a friend with it, it's the same brand they had before, it's cheaper.
quote: I'm serious. They ask if I have an iPhone. I say "no." They seem shocked, since I am really into devices. I say, "well, I have an Android phone." They stare blankly. I say, "it's kind of like an iPhone, but on mine I have a keyboard." They look slightly less confused. Tomorrow I say "Android" and get the same blank stare.
quote: So because you know vapid idiots, that means something in an argument?
quote: I mean seriously, come on now, it's the end of 2011 and you're trying to tell me you know THAT many people who literally think Apple makes the only phone on the planet?
quote: Wtf does tech savvy have to do with your argument? That's like saying someone is "tech savvy" because they know Ford makes vehicles too, not just Chevrolet. It's called "common knowledge"! Ever heard of it?
quote: Again making people seem REALLY dense and ignorant of basic current events doesn't actually make an argument good or even relevant. Try again.
quote: who are happy with iPhones
quote: "How many billions of people in emerging markets would love to have an iPhone? These are a growing demographic."
quote: Consumers ... are disappointed in the 4S release
quote: So true. How else would they have 100% of the market... oh, wait.
