PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You wouldn't believe it, but something actually, truly interesting came out of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit yesterday. Apple had conducted a survey to find out why, exactly, consumers opted to go with Android instead of the iPhone. The results are fascinating - not only do they seem to invalidate Apple's claims, they provide an unusual insight into consumer behaviour. The gist? People choose Android not because it's an iPhone copy - they choose it because of Android's unique characteristics.

Dude quit drinking the iKoolaid...mmmkay? Apple is still and always will be single digits in the home computer market because their crap is too expensive and ALWAYS behind the curve. when Apple does a 'refresh" the same chips have been out for 4 months or more in the PC market which is a hell of a long time as fast as chips are popping out now.

And the only thing Apple did with tablets is actually put a tablet OS on a tablet...wow. Being the best at the special olympics doesn't make you a genius you know, and there is a reason why there have been a ton of "Microsoft's lost decade" articles because ever since Ballmer showed up its been "Windows Windows Windows" which is why Apple has had a free reign. All Steve did was look at a WinTablet and go "Wow, that's really fricking DUMB" and had them put a phone UI instead of a desktop one, NOT innovative, just the competition was stupid and wanted to sell more desktops.

Finally dude...its not 1993, okay? Quit writing "M$" because it makes you look like a tard. The whole "M$" thing came from M$-DOS and that hasn't been sold in 16 damned years so just stop, it makes you look like a moron.
