I farking HATE iphones. I had to trade my daughter because she couldn't get it to do some things she needed so I gave her my wonderful Droid Galaxy.
Now my farking computer freezes on iTunes, I have to download something to put it on something else, I can't just plug it into a computer like a thumb drive to transfer files. I have to convert movies into another format.  Fark Apple and anything starting with a small i.
"Oh, we have to be different. We need you to buy all sorts of crap that only works with our stuff."

/man, I miss my Droid. So simple. I just wanted something simple.

bingethinker: Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: And apple fanboys haven't come up for air since.

Pro tip: If you're old enough to vote, you're too old to use words like "fanboy. " Unless you enjoy looking like a teenage douche.


What kind of douche I look like is none of your concern, and "fanboy" is a much more convenient shorthand than "army of sycophants, poseurs, and whores".

Satanic_Hamster: How, exactly, has the world changed due to the Iphone?


They basically created the smartphone-for-the-average-consumer market.  Attempts at selling blackberries to soccer moms were not terribly successful.

Has having everyone carry around a powerful multi-function computer with real time access to all of humanity's knowledge changed anything about modern life?

Maybe a little.

Apple is not a technology company. They don't invent shiat. They repackage other people's inventions and hard work. Apple is a marketing company. They acquire other's people's tech and ideas and convince the dimwitted that they need it. Apple doesn't sell tech toys. They sell fashion. It doesn't matter that Apple products are 1-2 years behind everyone else because the product itself is meaningless. It's the image that people pay for.

Want to to know how I know you are not using the Mac version of iTunes?  It is your own fault you know.  iOS stuff works with a stable OS, not that inbred clusterfark known as Windows.

(Yes, there is a small possibility that you use Linux but you mentioned you had a daughter which means you got laid at least once in your life.  Unless you adopted. . . )

Welcome, Apple Haters.

Begin showing us your complexes, hate, and regaling us with tales of how your e-junk is bigger than everyone else's.

likefunbutnot: Dragonflew: You can $ave attachments (in addition to pictures) by purcha$ing Document$-to-Go ($10). To download file$ from the web, you need Google Chrome plu$ an exten$ion ($2.00

I'm sure that's lovely for X number of document formats supported by Documents to Go, but it doesn't fix problem for arbitrary content or content that's in one of iOS's protected classes (e.g. music, which as far as I can tell can ONLY come from itunes-the-program or itunes-the-store or streamed without ever actually being stored on the device). The whole iOS ecosystem revolves around either living entirely in Apple's semi-functional world or having to hack after hack after hack after hack to work around its bullshiat.


Amazon music loads just fine through iTunes, Amazon even gives you a little app to do it for you if you are to simple to figure out drag and drop. Can also rip CDs.

Dragonflew: aintnuttintofarkwith: I don't get the argument for larger screens. Do you need a purse to carry that thing around?

Ah, iFans. If the screen on an Android phone is smaller than an iPhone, it's ridiculed. If it's larger than an iPhone, it's ridiculed.


This.

The Windows Mobile 6 phone I had in 2006 is more functional than any iOS device that has ever been released. It can actually download files from the web and save E-mail attachments.

I don't think Apple's best achievement was the iPhone itself.  It was an incremental evolution in the smart phone arena with an amazing marketing machine behind it.

I always thought Apple's greatest accomplishment was making an entire telecom industry bend to it's will to pave the way for the smart phone ecosystem we enjoy today.  I love my Nexus 5 dearly, but I believe that without Apple, the typical consumers would still be stuck with carrier-specific OS's that force you to pay for looking at any application other than an alarm clock or simple calculator.

People no longer look at each other when in restaurants? No one knows any phone numbers anymore?

Got mine about three weeks after it went on sale.  When the app store opened, there were less than 500 apps available, and they were mostly flashlights and calculators.  On my fourth iPhone now, loved them all.  If it had a death ray, it would be perfect.
