That doesn't actually follow in reason if you think about it: it's possible to be rationally pissed. For example if someone really is copying you and getting away with it.


     


    If you look past the presentation and objectively evaluate the statements being made you will see it is pretty much true what he said.

    Bravo! Finally somebody has the balls to start publishing this stuff in depth. Joke's over. Thanks for showing up that this isn't actually SamsungInsider.

    . It lacks openness.

    openness = winning!

    WOW! Now THIS is the kind of reading I could really get into on a daily basis! WOAH! 


     


    Give this writer a raise! 


     


    I wonder if this article will get a mention on other sites. I sure hope so, but I'm sure all the Android trolls will be out in full-force saying how wrong it is. 


     


    Flawgic comes into play way too often on "tech" sites. The FACTS could be plastered right in front of the readers, but the Android queens will argue they're not REAL facts.

    I could not have said this better myself.  I love the clearly android fanboy response criticizing this article's fanboy nature.  Flawgic at its best!

    hi! 99% of the people want a smartphone, not a hobby.. and even for the 1%.. as a minimum.. shouldn't it be easy (and possible) to install a new system iteration one year after hardware purchase? - not possible with the large majority of androids out there!



    i dont see myself in many of apple's customer relations practices these days (at all), and i admire android in very many ways.. but to say that the ios is where it is today because of android.. maybe that's why u see this article as fanaticism? peace

    But are they really? If you are going to have a touch screen on a phone then that dictates that the phone will be rectangular with a speaker at the top, mic at the bottom and most of the front is a screen.  The "home" button being where it is is just logical and Samsung have actually got 3 buttons at the bottom on the note2 I've just bought but the other two are touch sensitive.  The question of copying is one that is being argued throughout the world with one company winner in one area and the other in another area.  


     


    The reason I've gone for a Samsung Note2 to replace my iPhone5 is due to the innovation !!


     


    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.

    Greetings from an Apple user.


     


    What part is not true?

    I read this in its entirety, and honestly it sounds like one big tantrum!

    If that's what you like then buy it, more power to you. I was just making the point that tone does not necessarily mean false.

    I did.  My response was due to the "copying" comment.  


     


    I've spoken to quite a number of people and there is quite a group of people who have had virtually all the iPhones maybe missing the off one that are now thinking "There is nothing new".  


     


    So what if it's a little quicker?


    Who cares if it's a little thinner? - I'd rather have a better battery!


    Who cares about this "really good new connector"? - I'd rather have the old one or a microUSB!


    The iPhone5 is too slippery and it's like trying to keep hold of a bar of soap in the shower.


    There is NOTHING new that I'm interested in.


     


    I really loved the iPhone3G and my favourite phone of all time was the Nokia 9500 communicator.

    Wonderful article!
    I love it when good reporters take the gloves off and just say the truth as it is :)

    I saw Dilger's name, scrolled down and looked at the length of the article, checked a few phrases and suspect it's one of his pieces where he attempts to create a logically consistent alternate realty where black is white and white is Azerbaijan and concluded my life's too short.


     


    What's it about?

    This...

    Why check it yourself when you can be told by somebody else?

    By tying Google Glass under poor overall value, you're entire article became worthless.


     


    You also imply in your flawgic, that since there are a few Android or Google products that are mediocre or plain garbage, that for some reason the company isn't allowed to come out with an amazing product (Pixel, which has been given amazing reviews hardware wise and design wise). Or are you implying that they aren't allowed to sell it at such high premium price like Apple (Which Google is getting a lot of flak about that by Pixel reviewers mind you)?

    Google's first product, Web search, was going nowhere until the company realized it could monetize search results with paid placement


     


    Wow, Google's web search was going nowhere? The search that helped push the internet into what it is was going nowhere?

    After launching Android, Google realized that it had targeted the wrong smartphone products (Blackberry and Windows Mobile) when Apple?s very different iPhone arrived in 2007. Google then went to work adding value to Android by taking value directly from Apple?s iOS.



     


    A corporation looking to future proof themselves by not being beholden to the whim of what would've been a mobile monopoly on Apple's part is logical, and Google realizing they targeted the wrong products is a flawed argument (They targeted mobile devices, not specific devices), so yes, I guess this was flawgic.

    At the same time, Google has also adapted others? work in ways that are so extensive that they no longer resemble the original. Buzz, Google?s copy of Twitter, was so terrible in its privacy robbing that nobody wanted to use it. Google +, Google?s copy of Facebook, is so nerdy nobody outside of the company uses it. Google Play, Google?s copy of the iOS App Store, is so flawed in its security and curation that developers haven?t paid it any real attention.



     


     


    "Ping, Apple's copy of Facebook was so irrelevant, Apple paid artists to say "hi" every once in a while".


     


    Developers aren't paying any real attention to Google Play Store? You must not read the news Since Google Play Revenue is growing 10x Higher than App Store


     


    There must be a lot of nerds if Google+ is number 2 social network. http://www.zdnet.com/google-moves-up-to-second-place-in-social-networks-7000010372/

    If Daniel were to borrow a few musical lines

    Now this looks like a job for me
    So everybody just follow me
    'Cause we need a little controversy
    'Cause it feels so empty without me...


    It's just harmless DED spiel. Perhaps he forgot his own blog password. In any event it will probably serve it's purpose to draw a few more eyeballs here, both pro and anti-Apple.
