Well, I guess you have a point with their brilliant roll-out presentations like Radio City of the Bollywood fiasco this week.
Their mobile lines are pretty darned different than Apple. Even if it was a "me too" at some point, they've certainly gone in a different direction. I would recommend trying them.

Yes, they do.

That's why they are making/trying to sell all the other stuff.

Microsoft will be calling you shortly. They want you to be the star of their next Apple v. Samsung commercial. Seems you fit their targeted stereotype perfectly.

I'd say he already has because there's no hint of anything new coming out of Apple any time soon. Or maybe there just isn't anything new coming out of Apple any time soon... In which case, good job on keeping it all under wraps!

Hopefully he will be a bit more specific about things to come in the second half of 2013. Ok, he won't...

Well, at least you noticed how low MacRumors has sunk in its reputation. When you claim to be an Apple centric site but your membership is overwhelmingly anti-Apple it raises red flags as to what the real purpose of the site is. Real Apple centric web sites and their members took notice a long time ago.

My Samsung DLP TV was pretty decent. Well, except for their design stupidity that prevented effective use of a universal remove. Oh, and their design stupidity that caused the light tunnel to collapse two weeks after the class-action settlement ran out. And the CSO who then told me to GFY. That alone ensures that I will never buy a Samsung product if I can help it.

Now, as for Tim Cook -- how is he quoted as saying stuff when every photo of him looks like an Aldebaran Shellmouth? Seriously, the guy never opens his mouth.

This just caught my eye. Can you explain what 'failed' handset you're talking about? By all accounts Samsung is doing pretty damn good in the handset market.

I am not old school MR, so I don't know what it was like in the good ol' days. True, there are some trolls, but they are on every site. What I see are some Apple fans who no longer just tow the line when it comes to Apple. Fair or not, Apple set a level of expectation that wasn't being met by other companies. That was then. More recently, those companies have started to equal, and in some cases, surpass Apple in certain areas.

Apple is still a company that moves the needle. Being that company, everything you do is overly scrutinized. Samsung is starting to get a taste of that now.

Back then, Apple existed in a virtual vacuum. There was nothing to really compete with what they had to offer. Today, there is an endless array of products that compete with Apple's offerings. The companies that make those products have had to 'step up their game' to compete. In varying degrees, they've been successful. I think the Apple fan is only expressing discontent because they feel Apple has rested on it laurels a bit. People have come to expect, unrealistically, Apple to create something extraordinary every year. When it doesn't happen they get disappointed.

I personally think Apple is great at some things, good at others, and horrible at a few. That doesn't make me, or anyone else for that matter, anti-Apple; just more critical.

With all that said, there are still trolls - both for and against Apple. Sometimes they make for entertaining banter.

100 mins, great, I could listen to Tim Cook all day - love the accent. I just don't like the way he can't say iPhone or iPad without following it by "with its gorgeous retina display" or "with its beautiful big 9.7inch display"

Of course, if All Things D was held after WWDC, then the conversation could be a lot more interesting.

When Apple used to attend Macworld then it was only (only!!) five months after the fact. Now there's a 11 month gap to talk about everything that happened last year.

Tim Cook Best CEO Ever

He has the most charisma of any CEO. He's gay. He can crunch numbers. He's a visionary. He's pumping out product every quarter. Apple is on a roll, bit--es!

Lets hope so, I have no issues with Tim Cook. I think he's doing a good job so far. Lets hope product announcements at WWDC are a success.

I'm getting tired of "Apple didnt invent this, apple didn't invent that." I think you need to reread the definition for innovation. It's sorely confused for invention.

Do you think Nikola Tesla was the first person to THINK of bringing electricity into everyone's homes? No, him and Edison (and many others) pursued it. Teslas innovation was in his IMPLEMENTATION, his ideas for achieving that vision and doing it safely for public use. Anyone could have thought of powering homes with electricity. Bringing it safely into the home was 99% of the battle.
Fine smart guy. I'll give in. Apple was the first to bring the GUI to market.

Point remains that they weren't the first to bring digital music players, smartphones (whether defined by touchscreen, internet, email, messaging, apps), or tablet PCs to market.

and here you go:

Innovation: Noun 1.The action or process of innovating.
2.A new method, idea, product, etc: "technological innovations".

Hmmmmm..... i see "idea" in there, don't see "successful marketing"

The iphone 5 battery weights 1.4 ounces, lets say you want to get a 3 day battery life from a single charge, that would require a battery 3 times as big adding to 3.2 ounces, plus the components, the iphone 5 would have ended being fatter and heavier than the 4s.Technology right now is centered around making the devices thiner while keeping the same battery and functions as the model before.
What happened to Steve's motto that consumers don't know what they want, and we make devices that can do what they would have wanted had they had knew what they wanted? I there's anything Steve stood for that's exactly that.

I don't give a flying if *most* (by no means all, go check out the lists with the highest battery smartphones) smart phones are playing an absurd misguided ever thinning fashion game against each other costing battery life, with apple being at the forefront of this arch stupidity. I don't like my "smart" phone to last for a day and a half at best, when my "dumb" phone lasted for a week, and my kindle lasts for a month.

Because that makes it "dumber" than the other devices. And don't tell me yeah, by virtue of it being a smart phone and not dumb (because of course other than check emails and browse the web all of us are doing super smart things on our phones like using them as telescopes or computing dna mutations) or by virtue of ever increasing lcd screens it should have such pathetic battery life. No, it shouldn't.

Like I said, post a poll and take my word for it. Ask what people want a few mm and grams more and 4 day of battery life or an ever thinning device with a days life? See what happens.

Let me postulate something radically different for a change.

HOW ABOUT,

apple actually using that little pile of cash they have at hand ($150 billion) to actually DEVELOP new technologies, such as transreflective screens, biometers and biosensors, AI of all sorts, INSTEAD of sitting on their fat rich arse expecting to just put together components others spent boatloads of cash to develop and nearly go bankrupt for doing so?

OR....

they can come up with a watch and have Schiller and Cook pat themselves on the back on how innovative they have been.

I guess by real apple centric sites you must mean sites like apple insider where you get relentlessly attacked by a few posters (and their sockpuppets) for as much as diverging a hair from current apple orthodoxy, and then as soon as apple change their tune in line with the criticism they were receiving, said posters claim that they a. knew it all along they'd do that, and b. that apple excelled once more.

I 'll take the democracy and equanimity of opinion that is macrumors any day over such lunatic totalitarian cyber hang outs.

P.S. Great going with the paranoia too, about what "the real purpose of the site". You got it bro, there's an ulterior motive here, and the real purpose of mr is to subvert and undermine apple, because of course mr isn't making their profit advertising apple related products, and the volunteers who moderate aren't all up to their ears in apple's ecosystem.

Where's the new Mac Pro, Timmy?

I find it pretty ridiculous that the tech media aren't holding his feet to fire regarding his broken promise to unveil a new Mac Pro in "early 2013."
