    Why is the worst part that you have one in your hand? Not unique enough?

    Enjoy your phone and don't sweat what others are using.

    I hate iphones, mainly because I don't have one. I'm hoping Windows 8 phones will be a huge success, so Apple will drop the prices to compete. $1K is just too much to spend on a phone IMO. It especially sucks that most iPhone users are also Windows users. I've been using macs for 20 years and it sucks with great enormity that I don't have an iPhone, just a Nokia 1100. Apple should reward long term Mac users with free or very cheap iphones for their loyalty. I think i've got the receipt for a Macintosh 512 floating around somewhere.

    Windows using iphone owners i hate you.

    If you want to go somewhere to see a lot of iPhones, go to some vacation spot where you have to have some money to be.

    Las Vegas, for instance. Whenever I'm there, I am amazed at how many iPhones I see. They are all over the place.

    Seems like you have some major issues. Save your money and buy an iPhone if that's what you want.

    Ps Apple doesn't care about you.

    Are we talking handset or platform here? I often see someone on an iPhone and say to myself, "oh look, another iPhone user!"

    I've never even recognized an android device by brand in the hands of a user, let alone model type.

    Besides, even the article you linked to mentioned it had a lot to do with the fact iPhone users were waiting for the 5/4S launch:

    Nice! It always makes my day to find out I'm being hated. Especially over something as silly as what operating system I use on my desktop.

    Or a college campus. iPhones have pretty much become ubiquitous there, along with Macbook Airs/Pros.

    Can I have some of that stuff you're smoking, please?

    Maybe Tim Cook will stop by your house to thank you for your loyalty. Be sure to show him the receipt. :rolleyes:

    This is how I've seen it, in truth.
    Last weekend I helped my wife proctor a math competition from competing middle schools. Grades 5th through 8th.
    In between each test, the kids would all reach down into their bags and pull out their phones.
    About 95% of these kids all had iPhones. Some 3GS, some 4, some 4S. It just amazed me to see some 10 year old with a 4S.
    So it seems its no longer just a phone, its become an icon of sorts. They don't carry around their phones an PSP. Just the iPhone now.

    Oh, FWIW, some of the girls actually had other phones that were all sparkling and glitter. So it seems the girls went after looks of the phones versus the boys over what the phone does.
    Go figure.

    Vegas is cheap. Try a slightly more exotic location. :D

    Yes, iPhone has taken over.

    Yep, calculators and smartphones took over in exams a long time ago...I didn't agree with it, preferred the rough paper "Work it out and show me how" approach, but it's gone, and it's not coming back

    The upshot? Kids who do not fully grasp the concepts.

    Do you not know your android devices then? I see EVOs and SGS and SGS2's all the time.

    Its because Apple is quality! You rarely see an iPhone crash. I can go days/weeks/months without even restarting my iPhone.

    Buy a Macbook Pro (2011). Five years from now, it will still be running fine.

    That's exactly my point! You need to "know" your android devices. I'd be willing to bet even my nanna can recognize an iPhone. (And most android devices look the same to me - I can say with 85% confidence or so if a device is android based or not though, but again, are we talking platform or brand?)

    Last time I was visiting Disneyland, I swear 75% of the phones were iPhones. Everyone would pull out their phones to text and Facebook while waiting in line. I honestly think 3 out of every 4 phones I saw was an iPhone.

    Maybe that's why posting pics to FB took 10X longer than normal! :D

    iOS apps will simply quit to desktop when they crash. Android ones tell you that they crash.

    And as for Apple quality, my gf bought a MacBook 2 years ago. Now, trackpad buttons do not work, hinge has some cracks, and entire thing is SLOW. On other hand, a "disposable" Toshiba I bought for a project, was bounced around by multiple airlines in a checked baggage, still going strong and damage-free after a year. And my gf uses macbook strictly as a couch laptop. We have few workstations for actual work. Maybe this would be different if she had MacBook Pro (metal and all), but still...

    Every white 3G and 3GS iPhone I have ever owned has had cracks in it.

    My 2010 white MB has cracks in it near the hinge. Apple isn't exactly know for their quality on some of their products.
