    Obama? Shiny? Sorry, I can't see that. Have you looked at him lately? Tired old bastard. Seems the White House does that to people.

    I know right, I was just talking with friend about how every president changes appearance after just a few years. They go in young looking and come out like they've been in an oven and started to melt.

    I was just tying in the Obama statement with how people seem to swoon him without any real reason other than Something new and ....oooh...Shiny!

    It knows how to market it's products. You have a bunch of rabid fans who will purchase the iphone no matter what. It is a status symbol to some, like buying overpriced coffee.

    Apple sure produces some truly slick and aesthetically-pleasing products. I don't know that I'd say they're the "Greatest Company Ever", but they're great at packaging and marketing. My next computer will be a Mac. I'm done with Windows cr@p.

    LOL thats fine, those Iphones don't come with Flash Players yet, do they?
  • Command... U Mad Bro? 2012/09/18 20:45:35

    To be fair, neither does the SIII. Adobe came out that they're not going to support Android 4.0.x+. The app has even been removed from the market. I wouldn't want to root my phone yet for flash.

    From a sales prospective yeah? I have owned a mac for almost 5 years and I bought if refurbished. Still works great. No Iphone yet since all I use the phone for is talking and texting. I do like the Ipad. My sister has one and I would like one too eventually.

    I never understood the hate for Apple. Yes their products are made in China but what isn't. People talk like if their phone in their pocket is made in America. Plus if America had a free-market society like Hong Kong does maybe Apple and the rest of the carriers would actually manufacture their phones here in the US. For a developer the Android is almost a nightmare to develop for because you don’t know the exact system you’re developing for plus the system changes among carriers because Google decided to make the Android free-source. There is nothing wrong with free-source but controlled standards have to be placed or you get high-end developers like Unreal deciding whether or not to develop for your system due to unpredictability of the exact phone or system architecture their engine is going to run on. I hear iPhone is too expensive….really Samsung Galaxy III is just a bargain at the same price. iPhone5 just beat the S3 on a benchmark test, even though I believe their more identical then one better than the other. I own an Android phone but never understood the trolls that live to hate the iPhone. Just bringing some unbiased reality.

    The internet has been monitored for over a decade, google just recently teamed up with the FBI and CIA. My sister has an Iphone and everytime she posts on facebook it shows her exact location, hows that for privacy?

    I agree that we have no privacy but it is because Google and other companies refuse to tell the government to go pound sand when they're asked for their cooperation to violate the 4th Amendment.

    Google's a lot better than many of the other corporations. Nestle uses child slavery, Apple's sweatshops in China are so bad that workers sometimes commit suicide, Coca-cola bottling plants in Colombia sometimes hire thugs to kill union workers, etc.

    Nestle and Coca Cola don't invade my privacy. Google does. Apple probably does too.

    Blah, blah, blah. You think you know so much about life, boy, but all you know are the lies and half-truths your teachers have spoon fed you about "evil corporations" and "noble warriors for social justice". Someday you might grow up and understand how life works but right now you don't know jack. The sooner you wise up, the better off you'll be.
