Here is a question of you to think about - how do tech companies actually see you, the user? Think about it. If you imagine yourself on the other side of the fence…

Apple only thinks of money from their customers, nothing else.

There's no such thing as a free lunch so we have to give something for getting things that we want. From that point of view I think Google gives us the best deal, and the order is imho:

1. Google - you have to give some info about yourself which is no harm at all.
2-3. Facebook and Twitter: A little annoying distraction from the unwanted ads.
4-5. RIM and MS: We have to pay for much delayed products.
6. Apple is the worst: Is any explanation necessary?

That's not true. Their free training and Genius Bar services make them very very consumer friendly lets accept it- no company offers these services. It's only the extra money they take for the lightning adapter that is annoying.

Genius Bar fixes things. Creatives and Family Room Specialists teach people how to use their products...

Why would you need a Genius bar for a simple OS and a Simple phone, even kids and OAP illiterate people no how to function and use the iPhone! Its not a Android phone. Wow talk about how you cover and backup Apples back, knowing its a greedy selfish, a bad sign to be called or know as a fruit.

The "Genius Bar" is an excellent example of an oxymoron.

Actually, they ALL (even RIM) see the consumer as a pile of cash. Think RIM would give you a free phone?

Google seems like "The Island" movie. Clone a customer for replacing his/her body "part" or even "back to life" after his/her death with whole new body and spirit ("soul").

Can't say agree or not, it is depend on how and who we are.

"in favour of black berry"?

They are mocking RIM's near death condition when every customer is a savior. I think this can be applied to Nokia as well LOL
