    I wasn't refering to their profit's, everyone (with a brain) know's that Apple's marketing dept is like the pied piper. They play the tune and the masse's just eat it up. I was refering to their business tactic's/practices and outlook. I personally feel that competition is a good thing, otherwise we'd all be using the same crap. Aren't there law's against monopolizing? Seem's like this is what Apple is trying to do, monopolize the smartphone market and reap all the profit's themselves.

    Want it? Can't have it! Want it? Can't have it! :laugh:

    This is an old "comparison" but still some thing's to consider, valid comparison's IMHO and with the release of ICS i thik the spread is even greater http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/213838/20110914/apple-iphone-5-samsung-galaxy-s2-epic.htm

    They are no where near a monopoly yet and no matter what the Galaxy brings it will never out sell the iPhone. This suit is a pride issue for Apple. It has nothing to do with what the suit is really about. Jobs basically said he would bankrupt Apple to stop anything Android. Its about him and his pride.

    He wasn't a very good Buddhist.

    I think Android product's will eventually outsell iPhone, they are constantly getting better and once they have the marketing behind them the sky's the limit! Hell the current Android offering's are better than what Apple has, it's just that marketing dept :pimp:

    Regarding monopolizing: They are getting pretty damn close and trying pretty damn hard it seem's, they like to borrow tech/service from other mfg's but get butt hurt when someone has something similar to them. Woosies

    Right. You have to be a complete idiot to actually brick an iPhone/iPod Touch. redsn0w + ultrasn0w = unlocked goodness.

    If it's still going to be using an Exynos chipset, then it won't be any faster than the iPhone 4S.

    you said it - not me.

    theres always a chance of bricking your phone if you root or jailbreak it. most people generally careful and actually know what they are doing before going a head with it.

    Oh I love the hypocrisy, what makes a Droid supporter who blindly follows Google any different than an iOS supporter who blindly follows Apple?

    If ANYONE is a tech junky and just wants to have the latest tech, then that is the sole basis for which they should be judged, not on whether they are buying an Apple or a Google device this time around. I bought a new ATI card to replace my Nvidia GTX 580, and I'll probably buy what ever Nvidia brings out to compete with the 7900s. Who cares what sticker is in the tech, the fun is in playing with the new toy :laugh:

    I just wish people would be rational about Apple, but for some reason it's hard for all of you. This post is as retarded as they come.

    I recently upgraded my phone, I almost went with an iPhone 4S, but ultimately decided on a Samsung Galaxy S2 partially based on Apple's behavior in using the patent system to attempt to maintain their market share worldwide.

    Apple sought to block the Galaxy tablet based on the fact that it has rounded corners. Come on Apple, you can do better than that.

    There's so many lawsuits based on this or that feature it's getting ridiculous. I'm sure there's a lawsuit about that too.

    Like the "Slide to Unlock" BS.
