PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "For a seventh consecutive month, the Samsung Galaxy S III is the most popular smartphone in the United Kingdom. The data compiled by uSwitch is based on live searches, pre-orders, as well as postpaid sales. Curiously, Apple's current smartphone flagship is not even second. The iPhone 5 is outperformed by its predecessor, whose lower price and improved contract offers helped it remain appealing. The Samsung Galaxy S II completes the quartet at the top. The rest of the top ten smartphones is entirely an Android party. It includes the Google Nexus 4, who entered the rankings a solid fifth. The second half of the top ten includes the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia U, HTC One X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2." This is getting ridiculous, and it's not good for the market. For the love of Fiona, people, buy something that's not Android. I don't want to live in an Android-dominated smartphone world.

Well, if you really were a good parent you'd buy an iOS device for your kids and not a cheap iOS imitation like Android.

I'm not really serious (well...) so please don't kill me.


Hah! Well, I do let her play with my iPad far more. But I thought I'd expand her horizons slightly. I'm not an iOS zealot, she deserves to be exposed to alternatives. This is why she is also proficient in both Windows and OS X.

To the OP - if you want to enrage a parent, tell them they are bad. Parenting isn't about "bad" or "good". Parenting is about striking a balance, treating your kids fairly whilst ensuring they gain a good moral grounding and above all else, being consistent.
