Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

I don't want to be too nit-picky but if you're going to make features to price comparisons you ought to use real numbers. A new iPhone 5 16GB costs $199 USD with an AT&T contract. A comparable Android phone (also form AT&T) doesn't get cheaper than $299 USD. I don't study math but I'm fairly certain 199 is not 10% of 299.

I'm not an Apple "FanBoy" as they are called, I use Apple's products because they offer quality, durability, and a pleasant use experience. I don't defend them, I defend rationality. If you make an argument against Apple (or anyone or anything) that makes sense and is properly founded I will believe you, not in any other case.
