In what way does this compare to a totalitarian dictatorship which makes its decisions for people. I'll admit it was similarily lame when apple used this tactic in the 80's, but at least then people really had no choice apart from do it their way or go with out.
Now people have hundreds of choices for cellphones and choose.. again CHOOSE iPhone because they prefer what it offers.
Honestly, I like the people at google and usually respect and connect with the things they say.. but this was just retarded.
This is a common tactic of corporations and government figures in the US.. by trying to scare people into doing what they want with the big communist boggieman!! (or socialist or totalitarian) They're just words. People's lack of education on these words is what does the damage. Basically what Google is trying to acomplish here is tell people "Essentially if you buy an iPhone, that means you love Kim Yong Il."
Fuck off Google.
