android vs apple reloaded
Why do apple have to be so elite? stick a safety pin in this to install sim card, need to connect via usb in order to activate that. to fiddly.
I'm busting the apple products at the moment and realistically the ipad 3 is such a con. A $120 extra dollars from the ipad 2 for what ... a better camera on the back. Who the hell uses the camera anyway. voice dicktation - Fail. retina what?
I'd go back to android at the drop of a hat. I mean i like the apple products, but let's be honest, one turns into a bitch.
All androids have to do is sex it up a little bit more. So much easier to use, less hassle, cheaper - better than apple.
leaving microsoft tablets and things to one side. I do miss a good old laptop.
I was in the apple store being given a demonstration. The system failed, the cases failed, she was just too young too athletic too big an ego. The other attentdant was eyeballing me with a look of disgust as if to say who the fuck do you think you are.
And long and behold, after all that the training came out, she says "these are all highly desirable products". Jobs a job.
The seat fell off my boat - Team GB
people like apple like they think anal sex is gonna be different then reg sex... then they realize it's all in the head.
oh Lord... thats funny shit!
Long long ago.....You can do it well....

So their dumb for not knowing how to use a computer, and dumb for paying that much for something they don't need.

Also I just bought this android phone and managed to jump into a pool with it -.- not fixed yet, but I need a new battery for that too. Now if it were an iPhone, I oculd kiss it goodbye.
Also paying for apps is non existent with androids. I find an expensive app I want, go onto google and download a free cracked version straight to my phone without any charges.. Again not possible on iPhone.
It has a light on the back like a 4s, the battery life lasts about a day if I use it a lot.. Which I normally don't in which case it alsts 3 days. Hopefully this new battery will make it longer. Iphones lose their charge in an hour if you have one for long enough.
Oh and dont get me started about screens breaking..
AND you cant use it as a flashdrive without going through hoops..
Overpriced totally. I had 2 year upgrade, android was $0.01. A 4s would have been probably $100 or more.
The camera isnt bad though I will admit not as good as iPhone.
I love the damn thing.. Plus it has swipe which is fucking awesome, and the pattern drawing lock screen.. I love it way more than an iPhone.
Its a pantech burst p9070
Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.
I have to use Macs because I work in IT I develop software for it and support it. If you are doing video editing or in IT there are reasons to use macs if linux won't do. For normal average joe everyday computing honestly just use Ubuntu Linux or windows and save yourself a ton of money.
As for andriod its only going to get better, not as great as iOS now but this next version is very good. The new Nexus is a good example.
I will say that if you know or employ and IT person that is good with Linux then he/she can better support you when your using Mac its easy for us to write scripts to fix your problems and provide solutions because its Unix based like Linux. Windows is more time consuming to support.
Also I will say if Money is no Object to you and you don't play games or use software that only works on windows then you might as well use Mac. It is essentially a waste of money but it is technically a better operating system then windows but again you can get a lot better PC for the money or even two of them. (then you have to keep paying apple out the ass tons of money as the years go on, if you already do this with dell or something and again money is no object then fuck it use Mac)
Generally if you make under 50,000$ a year you shouldn't use Mac or you wasted your money.
