I know you've always acted like kind of a d1ck, but really? You actually want thousands of people unemployed simply because they make a competing product? (And yes, I do believe you were serious with your comment.)
I know quite a few people with the means to purchase any phone they wish who purchased an Android phone instead of an iPhone. And they're all much more mentally stable than I am (who owns an iPhone). Of course they're all IT people with the ability to judge tech products better than the average consumer (or rabid Apple fan).
Regarding the going out of business comment, absolutely, yes of course I mean that. There are always casualties in business. I do not care if people lose their jobs. I actually wish for it.
I also don't put much stock into what many "IT" people say or think, and I actually don't really think that many of them have any clue. IT people are the exact type of people that were too stupid to recognize how great the iPad was for example, when it was released. IT people do not set trends or have any influence on what phones sell well, average consumers do. IT people are irrelevant. If it were up to IT people, then iOS devices would not have made such inroads into business as they have.
