Just an annoyance with the way apple pronounces their products.

    Ok, you know how apple calls their products like they are people, right?
    Example: with iPhone you can make calls.
    When it should be with an iPhone you can make calls.
    I don't know why this makes me want to chuck my iPhone against a wall every time I hear it, but it's just wrong an iPhone is not a person, it is a phone.
    But if you use iOS it's different.
    Example: with ios you can get an app.
    but iOS is an ecosystem, non tangible.

    If I said "you should get laptop, you can browse the web, type emails and play games." that's wrong.

    If you can see where I'm going here, it makes sense.

    I look at it as apple needs to take grade school grammar over again because they are not smarter than fifth graders.

    It's just my second biggest pet peeve....

    That is advertising for you. They use words and "sentences" to form slogans, that are easier to remember and have more attraction than grammatically correct slogans.
    Apple is not the only one doing that.

    That does bug me slightly in Apple's promotional material but that is their style.

    I've seen Sony use the same thing with the PlayStation (or "with PlayStation" as they'd sometimes put it). :)
