keepitcherry: Walker: Suck it Apple. Did you hear me? Suck it.

The fact that people get so emotionally invested in their cell phone brand of choice is hilarious to me.


I wouldn't say I'm invested in my cell phone brand of choice (I dig HTC, but I'm not married to them or anything), but I just absolutely, thoroughly detest Apple. I hate that their design philosophy is all about limiting their users, not empowering them, and is about making an attractive product more than a functional one. I hate the patronizing attitude that they take through their App Store process (and the fact that the App Store is the only way to get apps onto your device short of hacking it), dictating what is and is not acceptable for their users to do. I hate that they choose to abuse the broken patent system to attempt to drive competitors out of business. I hate that they have legions of fans who will bay for your blood if you suggest that, perhaps, the latest iProduct is not the best device in its class. But most of all, I hate that their approach has proven so successful that it has influenced other major industry players to do the exact same thing (*coughMicrosoftcough*).

mediablitz: Yankees Team Gynecologist: jjorsett: Too bad for your narrative that I built it for free because the end users are buddies of mine and needed this for their volunteer mission to Afghanistan.

This Palin statement makes no sense, unless you weren't talking about the military at all but rather a church missionary group or something.

Oh no. The MILITARY is doing volunteer missions in Afghanistan. He "just made" an app for them. No need for it to be okay'd by the military, and the military accepts free apps all the time, with no review necessary! They know he is COOL...

What a farking moron.

It's the right-wing way nowadays:

1. Have no idea how X works
2. Invent imaginary world where X works how you wish it does, according to what you feel (not know)
3. Make comments, and vote, based on the premise of #2

Replace X with the military, economy, government, etc.

What I like about Android is that it's easy to develop for. Free tools, an open platform, and a large ecosystem of libraries, sample code, and experienced developers to draw on. Add to that the development of ever-more-powerful hardware like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and you've got a winner.

kab: JohnBigBootay: That said I find cheering for corporations an extremely odd activity.

Have you ever seen how quickly the white knighters around here rush to the defense of CEO's whenever salary is a topic?

Corporatism has replaced religion for an embarassingly large number of people.


bah. you can go the whole post-modern psych-lit analysis of human nature if you like. maybe it's all a factor. but, it may be the case that people like their gadgets. they want their gadgets to be the best. when a gadget maker gets rewarded for his gadgetry, the people get excited because that increases the chance this good gadget maker will continue to make better gadgets, thus resulting in people having better gadgets. conversely, when a crappy gadget maker gets rewarded for his gadgets, that's sad, because that means the future of gadgets will probably be crappy.

poot_rootbeer: Shipped, huh?

I wonder if we'll eventually find out how many actually sold.


Please. Samsung has sold a goddam gazillion phones. I even have one and I love the damn thing. That said I find cheering for corporations an extremely odd activity.

In history? As though the Roman Empire shipped so many smartphones that this record goes back more than about 10 years?

I wonder how much influence Apple's lawsuits had on this.
