A billion downloads because Apple had a contest to get it going... It would have not reached one billion if it wasnt for the contest. It would have taken 6 more mths to do so. I bet in June Apple will mention 1 billion downloads... That is why the contest was created. To get this under there belt. LOL

these are a few of the example of the problems with the device. I have had problems with each one.

Tons of pages to read... Call me a troll after.

hat's he best you could do/

If you go through several pages of the links for each, one thing you'll notice is that many are repeats of the same forums. sometimes the forum shows up, and sometimes the individual posts, time after time.

This isn't exactly a big problem.

Neither are the others. The third is hardly even reported in the links you provided.

Good try, but no cigar.

This is your problem. You say really stupid things.

Apple was almost at the billion download point when they started the contest. It's hard to believe you don't know that.

You're making things up just to get attention around here. It's a way of dominating the conversation without saying anything constructive or meaningful....

Well stated!

iPhone versus others. What I love about the situation is how Apple just came up with so many things that Nokia and others were just left picking their waxy anti-design ears. Love it!

You know, Ovi = "door" in Finnish. How lame!

Just waiting for iPad to beam us all (filthy, nasty, greedy) Westerners to the next era of personal computing.

If you would just ignore him. I think the other companies are getting scared. They may be able to match everything in the area of hardware but their software... It's nothing compare to Apples. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Hehe

There's a word for people like them: troll. There, I said it!

And the way you deal with trolls is to stop feeding them. Again, I don't want to tell anyone what they can and can't do on AI, esp. since I have neither the authority nor any conceivable right to do so, but won't you please reconsider replying to them? Ask yourself: is there anything at all to be gained from responding to anything italiankid has ever posted? Or teckstud? I'm all about discussion, alternate points of view, etc. I don't want to suppress anyone's opportunity to express their opinion on an open internet forum. But that doesn't mean you have to take this particular bait. Would your life be in any way less enjoyable if you simply ignored them?

I'm very sorry that I've used one of my very infrequent comments to discuss an off-topic matter like this. I'll stop talking now.

Thanks for educating me about the Ignore List. I've added ItalianKid and TechStud and things looks better now. Their "contributions" to the discussion seem very childish to me and my time is too valuable to spend it reading their words.

....the tone on here!
Seriously I would have thought by all the posts on here for the last 2 years that iPhone would be at least #2 by now because we know it has everything people want, it does it so much better, that it was going to take over the smartphone market, etc, etc, etc.
A lot of people sure get upset when they have to eat crow.
What do you expect when you only have 1 phone with 1 carrier in the US? HEllo?
post #61 of 149
One quick note: The iPhone is only carried by one service provider. The others are carried by all or must of service providers in the U.S.A. and I am guessing this is the same outside the U.S.A., that would effect everything a few people have been ranting on.

I've long had him on my ignore list, but apparently mentioning teckstud's name summons him like an evil genie.

There's something oddly satisfying about seeing those multiple posts just listed like shrapnel, without having to pay any mind.

You are welcome. Now if we could just figure a way to ignore comments which quote people on the ignore list...
post #69 of 149
The ignore list works like a charm. Thanks a lot.

OT: It would be interesting to see how those so-called "iPhone killers" fare in the meantime, and how much of RIM's market share gain is contributed through the buy-one-get-one campaign. Something that worth noting is that China is still missing from the global market for iPhone, while many of the others are already competing there. Jail-break iPhone costs much substantially more than it is in other countries and it doesn't stop Chinese from buying it. What will happen to Apple's global market share when iPhone eventually enters China?

The iPhone sells very well on launch and dies from there.

The iPhone and the iPhone 3G are perfect examples. Same thing will happen with the next release. Guaranteed.

This is not good for Apple. The device needs to sell well throughout the year. It doesn't.

Perfect examples of what?
That the iPhone sells very well on launch and then "dies down"?
Since each was only released once, you do realize they are the ONLY examples?
Or can you give us other examples of the iPhone?

Your signature has iPhone 2G/3G

Ah, so the real reason for Apple's Mac sales decline has been revealed. People are bypassing desktop and laptops altogether and opting for an iPhone. Nice!
post #77 of 149
Smartphone marketshare is such an irrelevant metric these days, it's impossible to draw any conclusions from it. The line between smartphone and feature phone is so incredibly blurred these days and will only get more blurred as hardware costs fall further.

For example, now that Symbian OS is effectively free, what's to stop Nokia shoving it in 50% of their phones? Suddenly Nokia's smartphone sales go from 15 million to 200 million and therefore propelling Nokia up to 90%+ market share. Will Nokia have sold any more phones overall or made any additional profit? Probably not but the smartphone metrics would show them utterly destroying Apple. The metric is worthless.

Trolls like teckstud and italiankid are getting to be a big problem. On this thread, almost all the posts are theirs, but the content of the posts is essentially zero. I have both of them on my ignore list, but every time I come back to the site to check the threads, I'm logged out and all their posts are there to be viewed.

I know it's up to me to ignore them or not read them, but that's the purpose of the "ignore posts" feature isn't it? Why not let us stay logged in all day so that we can more easily ignore the bait these idiots set out?

It's very difficult to switch over to this site to see what's happening, be confronted by dozens of inflammatory posts and yet have the strength not to answer them. Anyone who has dealt with teenagers for any length of time knows how hard it is to ignore them and how difficult it is not to get caught up in their stupid games etc.

Kasper, give us a break and let us put these guys on ignore for longer than a few minutes at a time. I don't see the downside in letting people stay logged in all day instead of pushing us off if we go away for more than a few minutes.

hahaha I am sure there are more than 1 or 2 people who can voice an opinion on Apple. Negative or Positive.

I dont know teckstud personally, but after reading many of his post today, I am loving him. lol

Hmm... Virgil-TB2, I stay logged in. Haven't put my password in in ages. Even after upgrading to Safari 4 beta, it remembered my login. I dunno. Could it be a difference in browsers?

update: I found this in the board FAQ: " When you register, you will be given the option to 'Automatically login when you return to the site'. " It sets a cookie. Perhaps you didn't set that when registered (and I assume that I did which would be why I don't have to log in?), and now it's necessary to figure out a way to use this cookie? I can't find any cookie settings in the User Control Panel.

Er... was that even comprehensible?
