    So far, Apple has been the only one throwing punches at everyone.

    Will Apple/Steve Jobs care though? Probably not.

    Tag lines are always funny/commercial.

    But it's also comical when the next Android based phone is released, no one will remember/care about this one. :cool:

    Apple is still selling. Bulky jackets and all.
    How's that Malware looking?

    There's already been a thread about this. Old news.

    And the Droid X has a pretty big flaw that apple doesn't even need to point out: it's an ugly phone

    Why would they? 3 million iPhones sold in the US alone within a month. Yeah, Apple cares. :rolleyes:

    uhm, didn't the original Droid's ads also directly target apple already?

    "iDon't shoot video, iDon't have this, iDon't have that, Droid does!"

    so really nothing new here

    Out of all the videos Apple uploaded, the iPhone 4 is the only smartphone that receives the signal attenuation by merely touching the antenna bridge. Who needs the "deathgrip," when brushing your finger alongside your phone can cause you to drop a call.

    Honestly, Apple deserves every ad attacking their marketing strategy that pops up.

    Oh yeah. I forgot about those Apple-esque tag lines. Maybe they really wanted to call the phone - iDroid. But that would've been a big lawsuit in the long run, so they dropped the i. :cool:

    It's partially correct in the sense that there were 3 million iPhones sold, it just wasn't limited in scope to the US. In context of the reply he got, which stated that there were 1.7mil+ in the 5 launching countries, my response was reasonable as it showed that the correct answer lie somewhere in between the two responses.

    Yeah, but that doesn't change the fact that what he said was incorrect. Incorrect = wrong. Deal with it.

    If the Droid X needed a jacket, I'm pretty sure that it would be located in the Big & Tall section.

    Apple and Steve Jobs cares enough to hold a press conference about iPhone 4 antenna design flaw after Consumer Reports didn't recommend it. So yes they do care what others say about them, any bad press or critique and they are out for damage control.

    So back to your original post, do they care? You're damn right they do.:rolleyes:

    You got that right! That's what they get for trying to deflect iPhone 4's antenna issue by pointing out other devices so called "similar" issues. They should have left everyone alone and address their own antenna defect instead of playing a coward and dealing low blows.
