Good luck with your Apple faith-based thing. Go ahead, pay twice as much for the same service and prove how wrong I am. As I said, the kids don't think that Apple is is cool, anymore. It's for old, rich people. The writing is on the wall.

Apple isn't just for old rich people but it's losing what made it different, stand out, as you pointed out cool. When an Apple store consultant pulls out a Samsung smartphone that says everything. ITunes is also facing a serious challenge from streaming sites like Netflix where people can easily stream a movie rather than downloading it which means they won't need the more expensive larger storage capacity computer such as the IMac, MacBook Air, Pro.

Why spend $1,000 on a MacBook Air for your road laptop when you can spend $300,000 on a Samsung Chromebook. There's also folks who in good faith upgraded their IPhones and IPads to IOS7 which turned out to be a piece of shit designed to force them to upgrade to the latest hardware if you want to keep using Apple products that they have a lot of money invested with via ITunes etc.

Cuz when you spend $300 you got a goddam Chromebook. If you want a Ferrari you don't buy a Miata. I wouldn't have bought a Jeep if I wanted a G-wagon. You don't buy snow crab if you want Dungeness.
FFS quit raggin Apple cuz you can't afford their stuff. Especially when they're like a meagre $50 with a phone contract.

I definitely prefer tinkering around with Android. Bought the S3, then my grandma said "Oh, you got the S5??" Wtf is the S5?! I didn't even know there was an S4 8O

Best phone I could find in town without a contract prison sentence.

Who's raggin on Apple because they can't afford it? For a road laptop spending $300 on a Chromebook makes more sense than spending $1000 on a MacBook Air or using your IPad because if you lose or damage it meh it's a $300 laptop get the point? :roll:

Who the Fuck would want a G Wagon? :lol: Give me a BMW I8! XD

A Chromebook is garbage. You're comparing apples to oranges.

A Chromebook isn't a laptop, it's a tablet with a keyboard with an OS that's not supported by any of the major software companies. It's great if you want to surf porn and talk on CKA...that's about it.

There's no comparing apples to oranges or tech specs here and have you used a Chromebook? It's perfect for a road laptop when you're travelling or visting the local Starbucks to write your Oscar winning screenplay instead of using your $1000 MacBook Air, IPad or Windows laptop because if you lose or damage those good luck.

Apple's live stream event is having some issues, a sign of things to come? :lol:

Too much fail here.

The number of apps is virtually the same.

Play Store had 45% more downloads than the App Store yet the App Store has revenues 85% higher than Google Play.

Tomorrow, when the new iPhone is released with it's larger screen, the market share for Android will start dropping as users come back to Apple for the larger screen offerings.


No, Apple took off like a rocket when they first launched the iPhone, but they are no longer the #1 phone company in the world - Samsung is.

Why? Because Apple (both under Jobs and now under Cook), presumed to do exactly what it complained Blackberry did - tell customers what they want.

Want a red phone? Nope, only white or black.

Want a bigger screen? Sorry, tough luck.

Want total control of your universe? No chance in hell!

Henry Ford used to quip, "Buyers can have the Model T in any colour they want as long as it's black!" Until now, Apple's one-size fits all model was more of the same.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ may help them regain some market share, but I doubt they will return to the top of the heap like they were from 2007 to 2009, simply because they persist in telling people what they want, instead of giving it to them like their competitors do.

Apple will likely be a dominant force in the market for a long, long time, but all it will take is similar hubris and they will once again be reduced to the shadow they were in 1990s.

Wow! The iPhone 6+ is nearly the size of my BB Z30!

Call me when they get some security. ;)

No, what? I never said the iPhone was the #1 phone company in the World.

And also because they were virtually alone in the Smartphone market in 2007-2009. Not hard to be number 1 when you're first into the game.

Apple is super profitable. They sell more apps with far less market share than Google.

If you had read what I said above, I said that these new phones will bite into the market share held by Android.

Fair enough, my mistake.

Blackberry, hello? What about Nokia?

Apple was hardly the first smartphone maker in the world.

They were among the first to make a touch screen phone targeted entirely at consumers instead of the enterprise market, but they were hardly the first to make smartphones - just like they weren't the first to make MP3 players.

Highly doubtful that it will translate into a large increase in market share.

Will they sell a few more phones than they currently do?

Sure, but I doubt they will jump more than a percentage or two, but it won't be enough to close the gap with Android.

I'm still an apple fanboy. I have a bunch of friend who had samsungs and other android phones crap out on them while my iphone keeps on truckin.

I'll admit the other phones have more performance and more features but apple has won my loyalty with their reliability.

Well looks like they were listening:


Quote:
Larger iPhones

Now, Apple is increasing that. The iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. The screen resolution on the Plus version will be sharper than previous iPhones, at 401 pixels per inch rather than 326.
