To have any thread presence on a thread you have to create a post. That would mean incrementing your post count by one, which means it's impossible to have created one or more posts and still have a post count of zero since you start with zero when you sign up.

Thank you. I was rapidly losing the will to keep going.

Did you make a conscious decision to post that? If so, that's a super position to take.

Not that simple. If someone was doing a study analyzing post counts on AI, his wouldn't exist, so it's simultaneously existent and non-existent.

Nice. I never understood why he did that though, since the entire point of Schrödinger's Cat was to demonstrate the absurdity of quantum superposition applied to large objects. QED - no friend required.

Good thought, although that notwithstanding, once read (observed) from a quantum perspective the post either is or isn't. Unless you follow Wigner of course.

Now you are getting more into my field of study.

Equations intact, the instance has been observed and has existed.

If you have studied quantum physics at all then you would have come to the conclusion that it has already existed in every form. Also, apparently the post would have existed In every language, spelling, and misspelling to an almost infinite degree.

Add magnetism, which has force over even quantum particles (unknown on the Higgs Boson) and you can continually twist your results.

It's staggering what can be accomplished with magnetics.

Magnetics, huh... that's cool. At least you're not studying thermodynamics where absolute zero cannot be reached!

I think it's more like they haven't figured out how to use it beyond texting.

Wow. I didn't know iOS supported widgets. And let me see how many folders I can create for all my Apps, yep I can spend weeks moving them around into different fancy named folders.
All I hear about the android supports is tweaking this and that and rooting and feeling so thrilled with it all.

Try thinking for a change. I will help you out this one time.
Look at the title of the article now look at my original post. Can you comprehend the link ?
Hint is web usage for android phones is much lower than for iPhone.
So what do android users do with their phones?
See it now? Or do I need to use blocks for you.
My other comment referred to my enthusiasm for iOS, no link to article.

Not around my house. iOS will be on the way out and will be replaced by Android. OS X will still be the dominant desktop (oldskool style). This is because I feel like I've been staring at the same operating system for about four years. I fancy a change, I'll possibly be back in the futre but Apple need to be a bit more exiting. Bland ads, samey looking phones, deleting my apps (youtube and google maps - let me choose!) to name a few. Couple this with a crappy new store, errr ping, .mac, .mobileme then a curtailed icloud. I'm getting a bit tired of signing up for stuff they can't deliver. Yes the iPhone 5 is nice (still a bit sharp in the hand) but other companies make phones and Android always seems to come up with the cool things first - not as polished as Apple but sometimes Apple look as though they are polishing turds. x Verdict iOS 0 Android 1.

By skool you mean school ? Your post is riddled with spelling mistakes, don't you have a spell checker on your wonderful android phone?
If you are married you are probably staring at the same face of your partner, so by your reckoning you should get a divorce ?
The Porshe 911 hasn't changed shape for many years but that is bad in our opinion, hey I hear a new Mondeo has been released, quick go buy that.
The iPhone 4S was a different phone to the iPhone 4 internally, did you know?
YouTube and Maps are Apples responsibility on iDevices as they have a legally binding agreement with Google. This had elapsed so Apple or Google or both parties could not come to a satisfactory arrangement. So Apple removed them, they do have full right.
You can install YouTube its in the App Store, did you know this?
As for Maps, well read the hundreds of articles and countless posts, I.e. do some research.
The build quality of the iPhone 4/4S compared to android phones is like comparing a Mercedes to a Lada. Comparing the iPhone 5 to the others, well it's incomparable.
I don't understand your last two lines, but it sounds insulting.
There are people who appreciate beauty and there are the others.

What does half of this mean. Many of you are thinking that the Galaxy S iii is used less then the iPhone 5 for data. Many of you are thinking that the Iphone 5 sold more then the S III, This just shows that for two weeks the iphone 5 was used data more then a rivals phone. We do not know what does this mean for sales as we don't have comparative figures as of yet. (I think the iPhone 5 may be dead even or passed the S III already.) The second point is THE IPHONE 5 IS NEW PEOPLE USE NEW PHONES MORE.  This data means nothing. Let the iPhone loose its new phone feel then it will mean something.

Well wait for Apples quarterly reports they tell the world about their SALES, unlike Samsung that never does. See what I did here?

I'm an Apple fan, but this story is completely without merit! First of all, the reason for this is because the second the 10 million people or so upgraded to iOS 6 (on iPhone 4, 4S and iPads) Apple maps suddenly became the default mapping and navigation option. People had no choice! As someone who has been using Android handsets in parallel with an iPhone, Google's mapping offering whilst not as pretty as Apple's, is light years ahead, even muddy paths and walkways in the middle of a housing estate or forrest are covered! There is no way in hell what people will choose Apple's maps today over Android maps if given a simple choice.

This reporting is driven by fanboism over honest analysis. Please compare to the excellent Android Police blog (http://www.androidpolice.com/) that is more impartial in it's reporting. Android Police did a toughness test between the iPhone 5 and Galaxy 3, and were honest enough to admit that the iPhone 5 came out better.

For my part, I will use which ever device does the job. For music, social (texting, Whatsapp messenger etc), I prefer iOS, but for business and navigation, Android Jelly Bean is the way to go, no pun intended! (For now.)

Have fun syncing, Mac support isn't that hot, you'll be better off with Windows.

Out of curiosity can you post the data you're using showing the relative number of iPhone users that hack the iPhone's in the manner the OP was meaning compared to those hacking Android phones. I'd just be guessing based on users I know but I'd suspect the Android users are more prone to such behavior.

But then most iPhone users I know simply play the HD back over their Apple TV with Airplay to their HD TV screen for serious viewing.

The vibration thing is certainly worthy of some good comments but I'll leave that to others ... LOL

Hopefully they caught the paid saboteur at the factory behind the worst marks (and no doubt someone in quality control or perhaps that's where some of this occurred). When you see that scratchgate seems to have dented Apple's stock price such things may not be all that far fetched. We are talking a sh*t load of money involved!

Pentile, pentile, pentile, cheating on sub-pixels

 

Wow custom alert vibrations, how advanced.

 

Yawn...

 

Visible and Vibrating Alerts

Turn the ringer on and iPhone delivers both visual and vibrating alerts for FaceTime calls, new text messages, new and sent mail, and calendar events. Choose to have an LED light flash for incoming calls and alerts. Or set incoming calls to display a full-screen image of the caller.

In silent mode, iPhone vibrates instead of playing a tone. For incoming FaceTime calls, you can select from different vibration patterns or create your own by tapping out custom patterns.

I love the part "over saturation taming". Sounds straight from Samsungs PR dept.
Even funnier being SIII suffers from over saturation in the first place.
But the drivel is always "it doesn't matter if it doesn't work properly or has issues just root it and all will be fine" attitude for android devices.
Tell me why can't it work straight out of the box?

How many iPhones are on Tmobile or being used around the world unlocked and did it not take a "hack" to unlock most of them.
