    That's because someone as stupid as you are wrote the article and put what..........25 people on it?

    So your fucked up story is better than the one I pasted?

    I think you'll find it's worse.

    Yes but I sprinkled them in with facts that soundly refuted your (all of you mutts) coherent arguments.

    That's an absolute gem.

    Delusional...

    Right....what was the other argument again? Why don't you remind me?

    Something about Norway overtaking its standard of living. Nowt to do with North Sea oil of course...

    I'm sorry, are you now comparing the annualized returns of an ipo in 2004 with one in 1980? What's the point of that?

    I am aware of what the prices were in Jan 2005 and the stock splits that have occurred, which is why I was curious about the claim he made.

    After 20 months, just call AT&T to unlock the iPhone. Officially is 24 months.

    So for 20 months it is not an unlocked phone.

    But hey, if you're talking return on investment, it was Google, not Apple, were you should have placed your money. Apple stock in the past decade has been shit compared to Google.

    Are you talking about since 2005?

    5. Like me. And sell the old one on E-bay.

    That would be just dandy if your locked phone was good for those of us travelling a lot.

    I use AT&T. They let you unlock at no cost. I thought the newer models are already unlocked.

    I thought they let you unlock after your contract was up.

    1. Looks perfect to me.

    Indeed, though the 4.7 is only a little smaller than my G3.

    Strategist says

    2. I would pay even more.

    Though I presume you'd be happier to pay less.

    Strategist says

    3. I didn't even know my iPhone had RAM. Cool. :)

    I guess we'll have to see after the next OS update or two, though if you don't buy unlocked phones, it's probably less of an issue.

    Failure, both in number and seriousness

    Good grief. I listed a few things. I said others with experience could talk about the OS. And who the fuck are you to decide what is a serious issue to someone else? Those are important to me. I didn't say they were the most important. And I numbered them not for importance but clarity before you oh-so predictably go down that line.

    There are technologies that truly advanced the computing industry, and that industry includes portable music players, smart phones, the Internet, etc. When people advance technology, I respect that.

    Have Apple claimed that as I don't know? They, from my experience of their marketing, seem to claim that their products are the ones that just work the best (or some variation along that line). I'd argue that with the ipod, iphone and ipad that there has been some truth to that, and once you are used to it/invested a lot of money in the software, it becomes more difficult to switch. I had an off contract iphone 3g for a long time, and switched to the G3. If I had been rolling over a 2 year contract, then I'd probably still be using an iphone. I'm sure many just keep buying the newer shiny version of what they are used to without too much consideration of the tech let alone the original inventors.

    But hey, prove me wrong. Name at least ten seriously bad things about the iPhone.

    I'll mention a few...
    1. It's overly large for its 2 screen sizes.
    2. It's overpriced especially for the increased memory.
    3. It should have more ram.
    4. I like micro sd slots.
    5. I like being able to swap batteries.
    6. People who have used the current os can add some stuff about the software, but it seemed poor for multi tasking in the past...

    I'm not missing the point. If someone incorrectly claims credit for something, then fine, you pull them up on it, but that has nothing to do with how the end consumer views the product they purchased

    And if that were relevant to the discussion we were having...

    It's perfectly relevant to what was being discussed. You said thank X, Y and Z every time you use your idevice. Why? Do people do it for other products?

    I see a lot of the Android fans being equally childish in their criticism of Apple.

    There's nothing childish about my criticisms of Apple or their fans here. You might not like those criticisms, but that doesn't make them untrue or unfair.

    You are over generalising and making mileage out of a ridiculous comedy video. Apple has obviously made products that people have wanted. Their growth is testament to the fact that they may not be first with products, but they have very effectively implemented some key products and done enough with those products to keep people repurchasing. So a small group of people hyperventilate over Apple's stuff. Big deal. I find it just as strange that people who like other products get so annoyed by it.

    Why? It's of no real concern to the average consumer.

    You're missing my point. Whether or not you care about how technology evolves does not change they way in which technology evolves. One important and meaningful measure of the success of a technology is whether or not later technology is built on top of it.

    I'm not missing the point. If someone incorrectly claims credit for something, then fine, you pull them up on it, but that has nothing to do with how the end consumer views the product they purchased, most particularly for the type of things you mentioned.

    In contrast, to Apple fanboys, Apple can do no wrong. Ask them about how Apple sucks and they can't give you a reason. This has always been true. Even when shown side by side the disadvantages of an Apple product, they can't accept that it is inferior in any way. Of course, once Apple finally adopts the technology that everyone else has used for years, the fanboys cheer how innovative and cutting edge Apple is.

    So a small section of purchasers are childish about the product they buy. I see a lot of the Android fans being equally childish in their criticism of Apple. Who cares? Apple make some good products. So do plenty of other companies. For some reason, certain people seem to like over praising the company while others seem to enjoy over criticising it. Personally, I like both my Macbook Air and my LG G3.

    Thank the PC, OS/2, Windows, Unix, and Palm OS for everything you like about iPhones and iPads.

    Why? It's of no real concern to the average consumer. If I like my fridge, am I supposed to thank the inventor of ice makers?

    There sure are a lot of people online who claim to have been Apple investors in 1997.

    Many? I thought most are way before that date or in 2002-3.

    Hmm, I'm pretty sure 1997 is one of the commonly referenced low points for stock purchases. $13 in December...

    I know a lot of fans of Apple

    We all do. They are very vocal.

    In your experience, not especially in mine. If you ask people about things, they'll tell you, and that also applies for shiny new Lollipop running smart phones.
    A lot of people own Apple products. A small number of them may be stupid enough to wait in a line for a day or two or spend too much time at Macrumors or some such, but there seem to be plenty of people who like to make their point about competitors products/against those of Apple. Take you for example. Does that make you an Android fan boy?
