My my, aren’t you full of yourself.
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/stupid/smartphone-debate-ends-with-stabbings-908541   Nothing to do with this article but I just had post it somewhere. It doesn’t say who was the fAndroid and who was the Fanboy. Any guesses?
 Hence the /s in my post. But it’s a good example of the alternate universe in which the typical iHater lives, totally disconnected from rational thinking.
 Some jackwad at Business Insider has already pointed out that the Dutch East India Company in 1637 would have a market cap of $7.4 Trillion adjusted for 2012 dollars. So Apple is still an epic fail.

Not a word on the story about Apple partnering to buy 36,000 acres of threatened forest land for sustainable packaging materials.   And are Dell, HP, Microsoft, Google being taken to task for their...
Oh put a sock in it, please. 
So that logic allows the government to confiscate by force from me what I “want” or “desire” and give it to someone else it has determined needs it. Nice. By the way, am I supposed to be on some kind of guilt trip because I live a more comfortable life than some others do? Have I won “life’s lottery” as some politicians like to term it? Instead of buying a new fishing boat should I just give the money to the boat factory workers so they don’t have to perform any physical...
