Android and Motorola have been and will continue to be a drain on Google and Google's management attention. Watch the search engine revenue continue to drop...
Well I'm sure their not idiots. Motorola still has a top notch assembly line and have really creative people working for them. They are going threw a hard time right now but hopefully with the help of Google they can turn things around.
There was time on this board where Motorola could do no wrong, you remember the PowerPC era, G3, G4 especially. It's amazing how fast you guys turn on something when it involves Apple in a negative way. Apple is just a company like the rest, they don't care about you and if Apple had their way, forums like this wouldn't even exist.
Isn't Motorola an American company, don't they hire thousands of Americans, still manufacture their products in US borders. In this worlds financial crisis I think any company that is still standing and paying for peoples lively hoods deserve a little more respect then what there receiving here.
The patent system is flawed and is being used by company's to hinder the business of others. Everyone is doing it and everyone is at fault and it sucks and it is wrong. Yes I believe in protected property, but the things that past as patents nowadays is ridiculous. Case in point, Apples Nano SIM, it's a just a Micro SIM that has been cut down to make it smaller.
I'm still in the hospital and it's looking like I won't be leaving any times soon if at all, anyway that's not important. Looking around my room I see my heart monitor that has a Motorola badge on it, so did the respirator I was on and the tablet the nurses use. The company doesn't just make phones they build things to improve peoples lives even sustain them. What I'm trying to say is not every one is like Apple, Steve Jobs resurrected what was once a dying company to now the worlds most profitable. Good for them, as a owner of stock and computers I couldn't be happier. However other company's deserve the same recognition that Apple is getting, there will always be ups and downs, Apple will not be number 1 forever, history has shown that.
Motorola is still a good American company. I'm not even American an I appreciate them.
Look I understand a lot of you just think I'm a troll and that's understandable as I don't blindly worship Apple and support other systems and manufactures. I came to this forum to see what other people were doing with their macs and also to find cool new programs to play with. Instead what I found was some sort of high school clicky popularity contest to see who can say the best things about Apple and the worst things about everyone else.
Hey, I like that to as I'm a nosy female but I will also always stand up for the little guy, it's just in my nature as a good person. You can't become an international firm with billions of sales by being an idiot with crappy products, as the person who I am replying to suggests. I am not a plant, I am not a troll, I love most Apple products, however I will always try to find something good to say about the company that is being crucified at the moment. I am very sorry if you don't like that and if there isn't a place for someone like me here then just say the word and I'm gone.
