Apple Apple's Phil Shiller has been trash-talking Android in the press these past few days - just as Samsung is about to launch its Galaxy S4. "Public, preemptive slamming of a competitor is far outside Apple's PR wheelhouse; it's a dramatic shift for a company used to making news rather than reacting to it. But why is it happening?" The Verge hits the nail on the head: "Cupertino's behavior this week is yet another symptom of Samsung's stratospheric rise in the smartphone market globally, a rise that challenges Apple and has outright stifled Android competitors like HTC and Sony."

It also depends a lot on the country.

In Portugal, Macs have always been bloody expensive when compared to the PC offerings.

The first time I managed to touch one, it was on the student lab of the university, where a couple of LC's were available.

They were a minority compared with the available PCs, only beating the amount of aging VT terminals and X Stations still available on the lab.

This was in the early 90's.
