When you write things like the following what do you expect?

Everybody says "so much cheaper" but look at the following links:

Do you see a different price than I do because they look the same to me. The non-discounted price varies but not by much and it's irrelevant unless you buy the phone outright.

When you say it "does everything better" I assume you mean it does things like data syncing better (even though Samsung's CEO uses Apple's products and says it doesn't), it's easier to buy music on and manage songs, it's easier to get high quality apps like Garageband, iWork etc, easier to find hardware peripherals?

No what you mean is that Samsung comes out with a program here and there that is quite cool and after ripping off most of what makes a modern smartphone from Apple, these tiny additional programs suddenly put them ahead. Of course Apple shouldn't rest on their laurels but give them the laurels at least.

It's just advertising though. It only has to resonate with potenial buyers and although it might offend a handful of people, you have to allow advertisers some license to make fun of scenarios that actually do happen. It doesn't mean all girls are bubble-headed types nor that men are the workers, it's just showing one scenario.

Some of Apple's ads don't come across very well either. These have a pretty condescending tone to them:

What demographic is that targeting, people who go around gloating that they have a better phone than everyone else?

Advertisers will use whatever works for them. If Samsung's ads work then it's not the ads that are the problem.

As for "extravagant, endless" Android apologia? I don't think my Android posts hold a candle to the hardcore apologists (if you want to use that term) and moral judgementalists on this forum.

To be fair, isn't it silly, pointless, rhetorical to highlight Apple bias in an Apple forum?

Bias is one thing. Going to great heights on one's horse is another.
