    Not as bad as the voice text ad. Lol

    As if being a "part" of the winning team isn't enough, you have to piss on the competition as well.



    It's immature.



    How about they give the little league sports salute of old... "2, 4, 6, 8... Who do we appreciate..."



    Besides it's only payback from years of abuse that the Mac faithful of old had to endure being pissed on by the competition, merely for the fact that we used an Apple computer... Immature? Maybe. Rather, I'd go with letting off some steam. \

    Just 15 years ago, SJ announced at Macworld Boston 1997, the deal with Microsoft that enabled Apple to stay in business until the i devices turned the ship around.



    I don't think even the most rabid fanboy could have imagined where Apple would be today and it's just astonishing to go from near broke to the biggest and richest. AAPL nearly at 500.00...

    That one angered me. She was way too hot to say anything but, "Get the hell out of here."

    Hey, don't get me wrong. Of all the other players, at least Microsoft has earned respect in my eyes for trying to do their own thing instead of the blatant copying that Android does.



    WebOS could have, should have, but failed to bad marketing and hugely-stupid management decisions.



    RIM had their shot, they got too lazy and comfy up in that pedestal palace to see the army that iOS was coming up to its front gates. They blew it miserably.



    I'd like to see Microsoft really put the effort into their mobile offerings. I do like differentiating options.



    To those that play the "Android gives choice to the consumer.. " whining, I say BS. Has nothing to do with consumers, and all about companies doing their own thing instead of ripping-off others. Consumers want REAL, unique choices.

    The modern version is:



    "3, 6, 9, 12... Who do we like [almost] as much as ourself..."

    Hey Absolute? This is an Apple fan site. People are going to cheer and celebrate Apple and bash, rag on, ridicule, make fun of, etc. anything not Apple. It's the one place where we, the faithful, can be with people who are like-minded so we can revel in Apple's success and discuss issues as they pertain to Apple's success (and failures). We don't have to be fair or two-sided, or even mature. Do you know why? Because just about everywhere you turn; you'll see the press piss and moan about Apple; they don't like their success, their working conditions suck, Steve is crazy, blah, blah, blah. This is our place and in a free country, we're free to say what we want (mostly)



    You're in the wrong place dude. Everytime Android takes a hit and someone points it out, you have a hissy fit and get your panties in a bunch, as if you think we should be so fair to Android. Fuck Android. Go with the Android lovers. You'll feel more at home there.

    I guess I don't feel at home around people who jerk off to anything I say as long as it fits one topic despite how vile said thing may be.



    I read many sites. Android, general tech, Windows, Android and by far the fans of this one product are often blemished.by despicable beings who often go uncontested because they are pro-something



    It's sad really. But something I can't turn away from.

    That's all well and fine, and of course it's your right. But one thing I've learned in life is that when someone constantly repeats something is because they're trying to convince themselves of it. You're like the beautiful girl that thinks she's ugly. Apple is winning the race but all you do is look back. Screw RIM, Android, and Windows. They shouldn't even be mentioned. I go on Android sites as well and see almost zero mentions of the iPhone.

    Not only that but the instances where s commentor disses iOS the comment is rarely cosigned and often ignored. Here it becomes a bad joke circle jerk.

    or: "2, 4, 6, 8... Who do we appreciate..."



    Gimmie a "Z", Gimmie an "O", Gimmie an "O", Gimmie an "M"...



    "Zoom, Zoom, ZOOM!"



    Backwards: "Mooz, Mooz, MOOZ!"



    Inside out: "Ozom, Ozom, OZOM!"



    ...Ahh... I've waited years to do that!
