Why are you on here then? Oh that's right to share this important revelation with all the other Old School "Intel Years" Mac Loyalists!

Nice Try, Beat It Troll!

 

 

What definition of troll would you be looking at then?  I am on here because I have an interest.  I have had Apple computers and equipment for about 6-7 years which is fair enough.  Yes I have replaced my iPhone5 with a Note2 because I prefer it.  How does me saying that equate to being a troll?

 

I didn't "buy into the hype" with regards to Apple Maps faults.  It is a very good package but it WASN'T RIGHT when it was launched and Apple themselves have openly said this. The ENTIRE town where my wife was born was completely missing from maps!!  I didn't even say that the Android alternative was better, I haven't even used the android alternative I simply stated it wasn't right, we come to expect Apple kit to be right from the start.

IOS and the iPhone have not really had any massive jumps in what they do for several generations: Siri is rubbish and I turned it off; shaving a mm or two off is not that important (did anyone ever say "I'm not getting the iPhone 4 because it's too fat?"); LTE is useless for me as the coverage is very poor and my provider isn't able to offer it anyway; the wallet thing is useless for me; iCloud removed some of the things I really liked about MobileMe; a new connector, so what it just makes things less compatible!; no ability to add a memory card, just allows Apple to charge more for memory; maps that wasn't right when it launched; FAR more apps, but so what, this is like the Windows/MacOS thing in reverse it doesn't matter if there are more apps if there are just dozens of duplicates and the smaller platform has everything you want anyway etc etc etc No I'm not going to get rid of the iPad or go back to windows but unless Apple come up with something new for the iPhone6/7/8 I'll not be going back there. I can sync my calendars, contacts, note etc from the Note2 to MacOS and IOS so I'm loosing very little but gaining so much.
 

 

You are entitled to your opinion. I possess many Apple products but do not abstain automatically from other brands. Need to program on Samsung Galaxy devices for work (as well as iPhone) and bought a Nexus 7 for my son who prefers it over an iPad Mini. So I feel that I am sufficiently unbiased to disagree oh so strongly that the Note 2 is a far better phone. It is a different product altogether! I can see your point about lack of "massive jumps" in iOS. But the same is generally true for any OS after the first emergence. Without question, form factor, iCloud, Siri, Wallet, etc. are features, and not true innovations. How you execute in delivering those features can be innovative. For me, it is not how thin iPhone 5 is that makes it innovative but Apple achieved it is an engineering marvel. Nevertheless, appreciation of such marvels is subjective (and most fanboys here don't actually understand the processes enough to truly appreciate it anyhow).

The stylus is a revaluation, the addition of ignore lists, merging views of contacts, split screen and other things I haven't found yet plus giving the user choice in screen size rather than telling them that they must have one size.  

 

 

I am sorry but here, I disagree oh so strongly. Nothing listed here and nothing on the note represent true innovation. They are features. How can screen size, stylus, ignore lists, etc. be considered innovative? The split screen thing is not so much about split screen as it is about multi-apping (I stay away from the term multitasking here because it is so badly understood; iOS is an excellent multitasking OS but it does not allow parallel foreground interaction with multiple apps). Here, I am puzzled by Apple's reluctance to make this available. It's likely a security concern but there's more than enough real estate on the iPad. But again, this is not an innovation issue at all.

The mic and speaker have to be basically where they are, there isn't any real choice there.

The screen has to be where it is, again not much choice there.

 

The only thing that could be argued over is the location of the home button or even using a home button and the decision to go for the larger touch screen. 

 

Who designed the first laptop??  All laptops have a similar layout so has everyone copied them?  I'm sure it wasn't Apple so has Apple copied that company? - NO it's just logical.

 

 

The whole copying thing is confusing. The auto industry is a good reference. Mercedes and BMW are quickly emulated when they adopt new manufacturing processes to deliver panel geometry previously unseen. Likewise with headlights, etc. - someone leads, others follow. But all companies draw a line in the sand in how far they will go in copying each other. In this light, I agree that Apple goes too far in defending the whole screen and bezel thing. But I must say that when I first laid eyes on the Galaxy S2 in a display window, I swore it was an iPhone 3G. Their initial set of icons were just ridiculously close to what Apple designed for iOS. So, it doesn't take an Apple fanboy to say that Samsung went way over the line in emulating someone else's design. Perhaps, for this reason, Apple is going after Samsung first and perhaps only Samsung. Having said this, I am curious about the Blackberry Z10 and HTC One. They resemble each other a lot and both resemble the iPhone 5. 
All in all, I wanted to chime in and say that, while I do not completely agree, I respect your opinion and it's too bad that others felt compelled to criticize you for the wrong reasons.

Nice article! 10 on 10.
post #85 of 298

This editorial (opinion piece) is actually based on many facts and really WARMS MY HEART. THANK YOU, for having the eloquent insight, focus and guts to write this. I still hold out hope that some kind of justice will be served against Samsung and Google for their blatant theft, manipulation, propaganda and skirting of the law. Though, apparently not from a Samsung sympathizing judge (Koh who overturns a jury?) who should be taken off the case, or silly analysts and me-too "pundits".

I do hope that when the lower cost iPhone 5 comes out, and once the bigger screen iPhone 6 comes out, Apple really sticks it up Google and Samsung's asses and it makes me so happy that they are raking in the profits. They did the multi BILLION R&D and brought technology that at first they were ridiculed for and now these cockroach clowns are copying them left and right, adding a few new features, here and there.

 

By the time Koh the Samsung Korean sympathizer is done with this case, if Apple doesn't go above her head that is, few tech companies will want to spend millions and billions in R&D when it can be ripped off, with virtually no reliable path to injunctions or damages. Samsung ripped of Nokia and LG, too. Whomever they are manufacturing for should watch their backs.

 

Eric Schmidt sat on Apple's board and sidled up to Steve Jobs for 3 years, then Google began competing with Apple in 5 to 7 markets, not to mention Android taking a sharp right turn from ripping off Oracle to dramatically ripping off Apple.

 

Apple is not perfect by any means, but I don't blame them for their litigation or recent public comments.

 

Then again, in this nation, and much of the western world, propaganda and carefully controlled "news" always win out in keeping the sheep in line, deceived and DISTRACTED from the real matters. Those who point this out are labelled "conspiracy theorists" when in fact, their "theories" have exposed enough flaws in the status quo's position that in reality, the labels should be reversed.

 

Who would have thought that at such great size and profitability, Apple is STILL the underdog. Apple, the $200 billion underdog.

They resemble each other a lot and both resemble the iPhone 5. 

 

I am NOT being biased EITHER.  Just to pick up on a few of your points however.....

 

I agree that Apple making the iPhone5 so thin is an engineering marvel (I am an electronics engineer) - However just because it is an engineering marvel does not mean that it is the ultimate way to go.  Making everything else smaller and having a larger battery would probably have been better.  The iPhone4 is as thin as it needs to be in my opinion (and remember that all I am stating here is MY OPINION, MY CHOICE, MY PREFERENCE)

 

I think that the Note2 is a better phone - FOR ME it is not going to be everyones ideal as it is just too large for most people again MY OPINION FOR ME.

 

The things I listing are new and if they were on the iPhone together with a larger screen I wouldn't have changed, if you don't want to call them innovations then fine we can call them features.....  So I don't think that Apple have added many FEATURES that I find useful in recent versions of the phone.  I've just found another FEATURE which I would have liked on the iPhone that I missed when I left my Nokia 9500 Communicator for the original iPhone.....  Timed SMS messages - So if you want to reply to an SMS message at 3am you can tell the phone to only send it at 9am rather than waking the person up.  Simple to implement but a nice feature.

 

I'm not here to argue just to give my opinion but some other people on here can't accept that others might have a different (but valid) opinion and believe that anyone who does not agree totally with them is a troll.  This is simply not true.  I've been called a troll over on another site whilst giving a balanced argument FOR APPLE and sticking up for MacOS.

 

I PERSONALLY find SIRI a bit of a pointless toy.  It just does not work anywhere near as well in reality as it does in an advert.

 

I can't really say much about the other phones you mention as I haven't used them at all

 

 

 

 

and Stelligent...  Thank you for the last sentence, it is true I am just giving my opinion as I see it.  I am not being argumentative on purpose or trying to wind people up or anything else like that.  I simply have an opinion which I feel is valid.  I was a massive fan of the 3G but I think that the others are catching up and Apple needs to do something to stop the rot.

This is the kind of crap that sounds like a concern troll. "I like most of what they do but not all' Yeah, that goes for everyone. "I have owned such and such Apple products" Yeah, so have pretty much everyone that visits this site. You've never seen DaHarder post pictures of the stuff he presumably owns as proof that his vitriol against Apple is warranted?

The constant anti-Apple comments followed by the reminder that it's your opinion all sound like concern troll comments which you complete by saying Apple is rotting. Let me get this straight, the most profitable company in the world with nearly all the mindshare and majority profits in PMPs, handsets, tablets, and PCs is somehow rotting? You really think anyone will take you seriously when you make false claims?

Thats why Google CEO a few months or so ago mentioned about how Apple and Facebook should innovate more....yea so they can copy!  Innovation is creating something new not copying and everyone running around in a circle copying one another like Samsung and others are doing.  Apple came out with Mac, iPhone, iPad, and others are running around copying it, what have others done that everyone has them running around and copying them?

 

For all the haters yea I know Apple didn't make the first phone or tablet, but they reinvented them and almost perfected them.  Tablets and Phones have been out for years, iPhone and iPad come out and now everything is copying with multitouch, etc.

 

Every Truck has a steering wheel, yea but from the outside they look different and not designed very similar to try and steal sales.  One going to buy a Ford isn't going to get mixed up and buy a Ram.

Have you read what I have said?  WHAT CONSTANT ANTI-APPLE COMMENTS !!  I'm typing this on an Apple laptop and I've said I like almost all of Apple's stuff. The only reason that I keep saying it is just my opinion is because it is just an opinion and when I say the phone I've just got is better I'm only saying that it is better for me.  You clearly don't agree and that is absolutely fine, you are entitled to YOUR opinion too. 

 

When the iPhone came out it was leagues ahead of everything.  The others have caught up in some ways and not in others.  Now is the first time that I've bought a non-Apple phone since the iPhone 1.  I would love to replace it with an iPhone6 with lots of new features that I find useful.  There are lots of things wrong with the phone I've just got: it's plasticky for a start, I can't sink Numbers, the speaker isn't as good as the iPhone and the camera and flash are not as good as the iPhone to name just a few.

 

I am hoping that the rumoured larger iPhone is really coming and also hoping that some of the features I have mentioned as missing are included (or at least some of them)

I never, partially, read so much bs in my life.

Android is nothing but a free, off the shelf OS used by Google to track advertising across mobile devices. Period.

And the hardware guys use mostly tech made by a few big companies, get their name stamped on the front and then dump it onto the market. 

Soon the prices start to drop as each a** clown tries to gain marginal market share over the other a** clowns. Soon you'll see $19.00 Android tablets on the market, stocked to the rafters at Walmart.

You said Apple is rotting. How is that not a purposely stated anti-Apple comment? No to mentioned that by all relevant accounts completely and utterly false.

Again, no one gives a flying **** what Apple products you do or don't own. They lend absolutely nothing to your argument that Apple is rotting.

Ok so ONE single remark is "CONSTANT ANTI-APPLE COMMENTS" ?  

 

I said Apple should "stop the rot" as in other companies are catching them up and they don't appear to be doing much about it.  That's all I said !!

 

The only reason I even mentioned that I own numerous Apple devices was ONLY to show that I like their stuff and I'm not here to slag them off.

I didn't see this earlier.  8 hours on LTE is good but I would if at all possible like my phone to last all day.

 

What do YOU think, would you prefer the iPhone5 to be exactly as it is and last for 8 hours OR would you prefer it to be the same thickness as the 4G and last for 10-11 hours?

 

It's not a trick question, I'm interested.....

 

 

Personally I would prefer it to last a bit longer as I don't think that the 4/4S was too thick.

That was just a plain 'ol fun read! Should get the greatest number of comments ever seen. Mostly from fandroids. The truth is, copying others work is a staple of this industry, mostly because of the difficulty in actually defending your IP. From legal cost, to judges who simply don't understand what's really happening to American products from the onslaught of foreign companies who are getting away with stealing anything they can make a buck from. It's never ceases to amaze me how many people love to defend a foreign company like Samsung and their stolen products all while watching them take away American jobs by flooding American markets with these same stolen ideas. I see it as downright unamerican to defend that kind of thinking.

Everyone here knows, or should know, that DED is a true Apple Fanboy. you always have to take what he writes with a grain of salt. it ain't "fair and balanced." but it is also often very insightful, and filled with a deep sense of history most of the tech web totally lacks beyond its pervasive shallow conventional wisdom. DED thinks outside the box a lot. sometimes he hits a home run, and sometimes he strikes out. i really enjoy reading his stuff. talk about a conversation piece!

 

at the very end of this article he got to the "Android is winning" meme, but darn it, not to the biggest Flawgic of all - that "Android" actually exists anymore! there is no "Android" anymore. There is Google Android, and Amazon android (they don't use the word), and now Samsung android (not using the word now either) , and then a bunch of China/India androids we never see here in the US but that dominate those huge markets.

 

all around the world OEM's and telcos are mutating an underlying Android OS by adding their own proprietary top level UI's, apps, and web services - in the process marginalizing or totally deleting Google's Android ecosystem from their products. of course they all want to create their own alternate monetized ecosystems instead. Amazon's built all around its big store in the cloud, Samsung's connecting all its many disparate hardware products and hoped for cloud services like Apple does, and the regional Asian OEM's tied into domestic markets unique to those countries.

 

when Android fans - hello Eric Schmidt - tout Android's global dominance, of course they are conflating the totals of all these fragmented/forked variants - resulting is a meaningless statistic but gobs of BS PR. which of course the tech web gobbles up. after all, thinking is so hard, but regurgitating is easy!

So Apple pushes the envelope yet again by making it much thinner and lighter than before — note that you oddly never mentioned weight — and even comes out with an LTE chip that is worlds better than all its competitors despite already leading in their class so that 3G and 4G times are have the same duration and yet you still want to call this rot. I am certain, within your sentence after sentence of how Apple ha failed you as a customer you would have mentioned it was too thick an too heavy as proof that they aren't progressing their designs had they not changed them. That's what a concern troll does. No matter how much change there is it's never enough or the right kind of change.

Even now you're saying that 8 hours of LTE use isn't enough to last you the day despite it being 25% more than the iPhone 4S gets on 3G. You also appear to be implying that it's 8 hours from the time you turn it on to the time the battery goes dead with your dubious claims of not lasting all day. Now, your may truly be that oblivious to how the device is rated but to me it sounds like typical concern troll antics.

You don't see me all p****d at Kenmore because they have a similar design to my Westinghouse coffee grinder. They're just things.
I like tech news as much as the next guy, but some of this stuff is just playground nonsense. Seriously.

 

Am I wrong?

 

1. You are acting emotional.

2. According to you, theft is okay unless it happens to you, personally, directly. OKAY GOT IT. That'll be all we need. Next.

Ok, here's a set of snippets from just your first post:
The problem with publishing ridiculous articles like this .... some kind of brainless fan boy ....I have had Apple computers since ..... ... just replaced my iPhone5 with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It is a far better phone ....IOS and the iPhone have not really had any massive jumps ......Siri is rubbish ..... LTE is useless.......the wallet thing is useless for me; iCloud removed some of the things I really liked about MobileMe; a new connector, so what it just makes things less compatible!; no ability to add a memory card, ......maps that wasn't right .... FAR more apps, but so what, this is like the Windows/MacOS thing ..... but unless Apple come up with something new for the iPhone6/7/8 I'll not be going back there.
Hmmm. It's a wonder that you only got the polite diss that you did.

Indeed. I'm in admiration at the restraint being shown here.
