Apple Yesterday (well, CET in any case), Apple posted its financial results for the second quarter of the 2008 fiscal year (which ended 29 March). While sales of Macintosh laptops and desktops soared to ever greater heights, and while sales of the iPod consolidated itself, the news is not so good for the iPhone. And the dodo will have an Apple TV to play with, soon.

I hate the iPhone, and I'd never buy it, and I'm also glad that it's not running as good as Apple thought.

But... I also think it's good that it exists, because all the other mobile phone manufacturers seem to produce iPhone-alikes ;) and that might be good, since they probably add better features and don't make it as restricted as Apple (here in Germany, you can only use it with one single phone company, for example). So it's actually a good thing and everyone might profit from it indirectly.

I hope that the Android devices will rock!

Horray for rabid fanboyism. As best as I can extrapolate, you don't like it because you have an unexplained grudge against Apple. That sounds like an well-balanced opinion.

You might be correct, actually. I hate Apple ;) but I'd even hate the iPhone if it was manufactured by another company. It's too expensive, too glossy/shiny/etc, too restrictive, it's simply too "look what I've got" for me ;) and I'm simply not that kind of person.

But as I also said, I'm glad that Apple released this, because other manufacturers will soon catch up and release something less expensive, but more functional. There are already some clones available, and I'd bet that some of them actually provide better functionality for less money.
