Great invention. Unfortunately, that constitutes a mobile device as well, so you can't have that if you have the phone.

I saw that side-by-side comparison ad. Noticeably absent were Apple's App Store, Android OS viruses and fragmentation. They should just stick to copying Apple instead of trying to be original.

While the Galaxy S III offers a number of clear advantages over Apple's latest iPhone, Samsung chose to highlight a number of unknown and sometimes trivial features including "Palm Touch Mute Pause" and "Shake To Update"

So they're even stealing apple's marketing campaigns?

Let people who still buy iphones buy them.

If they want to think they are cutting edge still, just nod your head and let them.

When they whine about all the horrible limitations of their adopted ecosystem, just say "I'm sorry you feel that way" or something equally as non confrontational.

There's no sense in trying to point out better options for them, at this point. Its more or less a religion of appearances now, rather than caring about having the best products. They bond with others in the same ecosystem, and want to impress those same people - you're not going to just help one person, without cutting them off from the rest of the "cult" (for lack of a better word).

If you try to point out better options, you run the risk of simply being put in a mental box called "androitards" or "iphone haters" and just your presence from then on will annoy he iphone user. Its better to just humor them at this point.

If you look even now, it's not the last 50. It's the majority of replies. And really? You think Apple would pay people to do that? They don't need to. Believe it or not, some people may actually like the iPhone, and saw an opportunity for a good LoL. Crazy, I know.

I switched from an iPhone 4 to a new Samsung when the iPhone 5 announcement didn't offer anything I wanted.

Yeah, about that. You know what?

There is a reason why iPhones still sell out on announcement day while Samsung shoots themselves in the foot in court and on Facebook.

Who would choose a fscking phone, anyway? If the island is truly deserted, it will do you no good beyond a few hours of depressing entertainment; then, it's not even good for kindling.

Take a crank-powered, short-wave transmitter. Stop fellating your fruity member long enough to see how stupid you look.

Because Apple can't handle hiring a competent supply chain manager?

Or maybe it is because Samsung is too busy making screens and processors and memory for their phones to bother making more for Apple.

There's also a reason why Android phones have 68% of the market now compared to apple's 17%,

"Selling out on announcement day" is a PR stunt, and you probably know that.

Actually, it's because without artificially creating a reason to get people to line up on launch day, Apple'd miss out on the media storm that follows their releases as well as pulling in people who are dumb enough to think there's some sort of exclusivity involved. If you could stroll into any retailer and buy an iPhone 5 on launch day with no wait, there'd be nowhere near the hype we're seeing right now. If there's one thing Apple does well, it's play the consumer like a fiddle.

Yeah, but its worth noting that only Apple makes iPhones, and all sorts of companies roll out Android sets. Kind of unfair to say "haha! 2,034 companies combined outsell Apple!"

It will be interesting to see how well the iPhone 5 sells when compared to a specific Android phone such as the Galaxy S3.

Ok, I'm out now. Don't want to fall back into old bad habits.

Sigh, back for one specific response.

I meant the fact that he was bolding only part of his original post, and ignoring the point of my reply, that a claim of Apple paying someone to post those Facebook replies was kinda dumb.
