considering this is a Daily Fail article, I'm going to assume this is a troll thread.

My unofficial study case, fresh from last night:
Participants:
 - iPhone users: 6
 - Android users: 2
Field of combat:
 - Trivial Pursuit (Four teams of 2)
Results:
 - Android users won 2/2 games (100%), soundly trouncing the iPhone users.
Most pie pieces scored by any iPhone team:
 - Four
Quickest round:
 - Seven turns. (Should have been SIX, but apparently "Alien vs. Predator" is NOT considered a gawt-damn sequel to "Alien" in the TP universe...)
Items of note:
 - iPhone users were most likely to scream, "That's BULLSHIAT!" when Android users would get a question right
 - iPhone users have threatened to ban the Android users from future TP tournaments
 - iPhone users scored most points on Entertainment categories, while Android users were more proficient in Science and Nature, Events, and Places.
Conclusion:
 - iPhone users hate nature and science, but love the Kardashians.

dittybopper: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: dittybopper: All smartphone users look stupid compared to ham radio operators. I can check e-mail or post to a website from anywhere on the surface of the Earth. Try doing that with a smartphone in the middle of the Pacific or some remote jungle.

Can you do it while waiting in your Doctors office?

Sure.


To expand upon that:  Handheld transceiver hooked up to a netbook-type computer running the appropriate software.

No one has bothered, that I can see, to do it for a tablet or iPod Touch sort of machine because they don't have actual microphone jacks going into them, which means they would pick up ambient sound (which would cause problems in a noisy environment), and it would mean you'd get annoying "BRAPPPPP" noises from the radio speaker because it's not plugged into the device.

The My Little Pony Killer: My friend will go on and on about how she'll never own an Apple product, and then she'll turn around and complain that the smart phone she has now only has enough memory for one app at a time. Say what you want about Apple and their products, the things just work.


Your friend is not too bright, and has been brainwashed to hate Apple. So, what's her Fark handle?

Misconduc: theflatline: You were 12 years old in high school?

Catholic high school started at 7th grade, so technically yes.


I went to Catholic school for 12 years.  Four of it boarding.  High School for me started at ninth grade.  I did not realize that some catholic high schools did not follow normal rules.

Was that in  Canada?

Ever since I was 6 or 7 I grew up building PC's, having the latest gadgets - by time I was in high school I was fortunate to have one of the first voodoo video cards. Now I am 30, I really careless about gadgets. I guess some kids didn't have a cell phone in high school, so most idiotic adults now somehow require themselves to buy an "Ipad or Iphone". My biggest problem is some people have no idea how to embrace technology. I am talking about the ones who are glued to their phones, walking oblivious to their surrounding.

Yeah this type, I don't care if someone has 16 apple products, I just have learned to hate the ones who glue themselves to the technology - then again I find it funny as hell when they get run over by a steam roller.

/I predict alcohol will be the #2 cause of accidents where cell phones are going to end up #1 because people can't put them down

BumpInTheNight: digistil: BumpInTheNight: I'll say one thing about iProducts,  they are cheaper then BMWs.

Hold the packet. Are you saying within the confines of the product, you get what you pay for?

I think we're both thinking the same thing here.  I'm saying its much cheaper these days to impress the sorts of people those products impress.  Bonus for me I don't even need a real iphone, just the case and a LED light taped under the glass and boom I'm in host vapid and easily forgotten pussy up to my gold cuffed wrists.  Hell I don't even need to carry that empty bottle of grey goose around anymore.

HMS_Blinkin: Mugato: I had an iPhone. I don't see what the big deal is. The camera resolution might be better than other phones now. I do know a few pompous iPhone users though. Everything's "let me call him on my iPhone or let me save that on my iPhone". It's not a farking status symbol anymore, if it ever was. Get a watch with a frickin' laser, then you can impress me with your gadgetry.

I notice that too.  The iPhone users I know personally tend to say "iPhone" in reference to their smartphone, while Android/Windows phone users (OK, the sample size on Windows phones is small....) just say "phone."

/the plural of anecdotes is evidence


i've had an iphone for several years and can't remember the last time i even said "iphone" unless somebody was asking me a question specifically about iphones
