Kudos to you for trying to educate him about anything outside of the US but I think it's going to fall on deaf ears.  He's too focused on defending his technology choice and his favourite company to understand the issues that the other 95% of the world are facing.
Why is it that Americans seem to think that there are no other people in the world?  The US is the only place where iPhone has surged ahead in sale and all the iPhone fanatics are marching through the streets like Toronto won the Stanley Cup.   Do you not realize that the entire population of the US only represents 5% of the world (I'm rounding slightly here)?   Do they not teach geography in school anymore?
  I really don't know what is going on with that company but they are willfully creating their own PR nightmares.  These are words I think of when I think of Apple:   Design, white, consumer oriented and high quality   Ever since Jobs went off the deep end with Google and now that they mass produce their products in a rushed fashion (they do have to keep up with the competition) new words are creeping into my vocabulary when I think of Apple.   Vindictive, average...
  Can't upvote you enough for being rational about this.  What a refreshing thing to see in here.
  Bingo.  You hit the nail on the head.  This is a fan site just like Android Police is a fan site.   This site is best used to read news because one you get into the posts, it's everything but helpful and positive.   I shouldn't really say that, I do get quite a few chuckles from the more 'loyal' apple fans who post here.  I find it very interesting how, as you mentioned, the article was reporting a glitch and all of a sudden it turns into an Android bashing...
What you did is work. This is called an internship.  Typically internships are not paid or the people are given an allowance to pay for food/shelter.  The deal is that they get free labour and the people get experience.  I realize that where you grew up, it was legal to work at a younger age but I don't think you had to eat and sleep in a factory and that your parents sent you away because they could not afford to feed you.  Try to think of the situation from their...

  It is hard to be original these days as so much has already been done.   Apple has done some great things but I'm at a loss at what they have done that is truly original I did some research and come up with the following:   iPod.               No. The MPman was done 4 years earlier in 1997 iTunes Music   No.  Ritmoteca.com was out  5 years earlier in 1998 iTunes Player   No.  Winamp was around in 1997 iPhone.           No.   Palm Kyocera 6035 was around 6 years before...
Yeah but when Steve was there, the word 'flaw' would cause heads to roll.  Apple has set the bar so high for QA that they are now taking it from all sides because of the numerous issues with iPhone 5.   Purple lens flare, Maps, Scratches, Wifi issues, overage charges, and no simultaneous data/voice on CDMA networks in the US.   These are things that people using Apple products are not used to seeing.    When a company projects the image of perfection, people expect it. ...
Who are "they"? And when this phone is released, I really hope you can find some articles out there talk about how 'vastly superior' it is because I do not think you will find one.  If you do, it will be from some loyal to a fault Android person who refuses to admit that iPhone is one of the top smartphones out there.   The SIII mini targets a different market segment and while the specs fall short of it's bigger brother and the iPhone 5 (gasp!! I said it), it is no...
