GSIII owner here, but the electronic device I would take with me to a deserted island is an EPIRB.

Russky: goatan: They should have known this would happen, apple fanboys are like RON PAUL supporters.

Meh, apple fanbois, android fanbois, they are all equally idiots.

I know, right? Fark needs a mobile device tab. It would be like the Politics tab and Geek tab got wasted on cheap wine and had a baby with fetal alcohol syndrome or something.

CAADbury: CAADbury: ISO15693: There's also a reason why Android phones have 68% of the market now compared to apple's 17%

Because 60+ phone models use Android, compared to

HTML. How does it work?

"Because 60+ phone models use Android, compared to less than 10 that use iOS?"

You do realize that simply building phones doesnt garner market share, right?

/My friends iPhone battery died. I asked if he wanted one from Fry's while I was there, and he started to cry.

The biggest vibrator I can find. Because whoever finds me, alive or dead, is going to have questions.

joness0154: Apple's market share for computers (excluding tablets) in the US has actually increased significantly, but keep telling yourself otherwise.


The people I know that buy those computers are usually not computer people. I'll ask why and I'll get the "Apple is for more creative people" answer. And if you press them about what they do creatively that justifies that extra cost that could go into software it's like having your brain sucked out by stupid. "I type stories, and post on the web." "I do a lot of photo editing" "I look at porn and click on Viagra ads in my e-mail and don't want to get viruses"

Heaven forbid you tell them that the $700 PC laptop they could have had will do everything that their Mac Book Pro can do for $1,000 less.

I've yet to hear anyone go "I think it's cool looking" and that be the answer. Which for the most part is the only acceptable answer.

Yeah, I bet Samsung is devastated. It isn't like those iPhones are full of Samsung hardware or anything.

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.

You've become what you despise.

OriginalGamer: Speak of the devil, just checked and sure enough, Samsung AND Walmart spamming my newsfeed:

They also have Sponsored news stories that show up even though I haven't "Liked" their page. Constantly.

I heard posting the full names of your friends online is a great idea btw.

Prepare for waves of wiener pics.

jtown: Makh: I totally agree with whoever said Electric Boat.

I'd go with a sailboat. They don't need to be refueled or recharged.

Um, that wasn't the question.

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