As opposed to all your imaginary Apple-trolling internet friends. You got me there. My point, which flew completely over your head, is that people (you know, people, not pimple popping basement geeks like you) don't go the Best Buy and ask which phone has NFC, removable batteries, can work with wireless mice, and has a user facing file system, etc. You honestly think this is the reason Android phones are selling, and not because they're dirt cheap and its basically installed on EVERY single non -iPhone smartphone from a million other companies? Think about this for a few seconds before you start mashing a reply. And you're accusing me of being in a distortion field? Wake the hell up. Also, it's not a race to who can throw in tech into their phone 1st. Apple isn't going to throw in NFC if they don't have a comprehensive, well thought out plan how to exploit it and get millions of people to use it, unlike Android OEMS to throw it in as a bullet point, without infrastructure to support it, and barely anyone touches it. You think Apple is planning to add a removable battery to any future phones? Filesystem? Don't you think they could have done that a long time ago if they had any intention? Your thought process doesn't include a shred of rationality or reason.
So you have visited 20 different countries? And you are still surrounded by idiots apparently. By the way, I have been to double that amount and lived in several. Doesn't mean a damn thing, but I think it is funny that you do. I do enjoy your bit on programming and tech. I've been in it for over 30 years. Again, means nothing. However, how many NFC devices have you used? Do you realize how many places already accept Paypass? I know you have no clue, because of your comments.
As for NFC, do you think Apple has every major retailer signed up to use it right now? Interesting that they are being issued NFC patents and every indication is, they will have it in the iPhone 5. Why would they be putting it in the iPhone 5? But when it comes out, you'll be one of the first to hail it as a great innovation and within a year, you'll be spouting off how Apple invented NFC.
And yeah, why have access to a file system. Why bother with one on a pc? You really are in your own little world, little buy. Apple doesn't allow you to use the file system, because they don't want their customers to be able to actually do anything to the OS. That, and they ink people are too stupid to use one.
Removable batteries are bad only because you can't use them. What happens when you don't have access to electricity for 12 or more hours? Removable SD cards are a bad idea to you as well, I'm sure, because Apple won't allow them. I'm amazed that there are people like you in the world. Completely and utterly brain washed by the Apple propoganda machine.

Your posts are nothing but FUD, trolling, and useless garbage that doesn't make any sense. Just go enjoy whatever phone you're using, instead of trying to fill the massive void in your life by coming here and attacking people who enjoy a different product than you. Noone
is forcing you to pay a single penny to Apple, nor spend a single second using any other their products. Yet you come here foaming at the mouth on an Apple fansite. The only person with glazed over eyes is you, you sound absolutely rabid. Stop using the word fanboi's (we can't forget the apostrophe thrown in there for good measure, right?) and learn some basic grammar and sentence structure instead of moronic trolling.
Why do I visit such a message board? For one, I likely own more Apple products than you. And two, I'll post whereever the hell I like. I have earned that right. More so than you have.
Lastly, you mention that I need to learn basic grammar!?! Well, your post is chock full of bad grammar and sentence structure. I bolded just one example above and then Googled it, because it fits so perfectly with 'fanbois' like you and this website.
Noone is common in internet comment sections and on websites with low editorial standards
