    I'm guessing "iSheep" is :Apple Fan with nothing but Apple Products:
    And "Droid" is :Android Fan with nothing but Android Products:

    If i'm wrong, please correct me.

    The first is a term used by the insecure. The second is a phone made by Motorola, sold on the Verizon network, otherwise known as the Milestone.

    Correct for "iSheep", "fandroid" is actually the correct pejorative term for android fans.

    Despite the overuse of both of those terms, there are indeed people to whom they can be applied to without much objection. Most of them can be found on sites kinda like this one. :rolleyes:

    I always thought Droid was simply people abbreviating Android (as in the OS).

    Droid always makes me think of my favourite film franchise.

    It is used like that, but it's wrong.

    In the end I just don't get the debate, it's a phone/pad I'm not an iOS user nor am I an Android user. I am on the other hand a Mac user so my biggest question is does the candy bar thing tether to my Mac? Can I put songs on it? Take pictures with it and off it?If the answers are yes then I just don't care my iPhone 4 is cool my wife's Galaxy S3 mini is cool. What's the debate exactly?
