your mad because google makes tons of products and gives them away? Tom Tom could compete if it found a way to be better.. a way to justify the price tag. It doesnt. Google offers more options, generally works a lot better, and yes, its free. But its also one of the best if not THE best mapping program there is. On the flip side, MS sells a ton of Office suites even though google has been giving it away for free for years. Why? because MS Office beats the pants off of Google Docs for options. You compete by being the best, or you die like the rest.
When you go out in to the real world and you are faced with paying bills and such, u can whine about how evil google gives away so many great products for free when your counting out your paycheck and watching it go to bills.
You are the only person I've ever met that gets MAD that something isnt expensive..

I am calling g bs on your comment remix (surprise?)... Google maps is not the best.. Nokia maps is.. Google search engine is not totally free . you can to appear on the 1st page.. is free to consumer but since companies pay for advertising most people will not go beyond the 1st page that Google made you look... telling you fandroids wants choices as long as it involves Android as long as some else doesn't.. they they are bad people... not too long ago remix was worshiping Bill Gates for his charity I don't see Google doing any lately....

gallito, you have to try harder.. your failing at being an effective troll.
How often do you use Nokia maps to know the comparison gallito? I use both. Both are exellent and have their strong suites, but Google Mas is better developed in more areas and has way more options. Of course, i also said "ONE of the best IF NOT the best". The best is subjective.
Who cares what other companies pay. Why do you iTrolls worry about every one elses money and not your own? lol. Android is not "free" to anyone that wants to use Google Apps. Play apps have liscencing fees associated with them that manufacturers pay.. try again.
You can chose whatever OS you want. Just dont act like a stupid fool about it. Thats why people get upset at you trolls.. your not honest. If you want to have a conversation, know the facts or shut your trap. Tired old troll lines just dont cut it.
The comparison was between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Gates won on every level personality, philanthropic, and intelligence.

I'm sick of Apple. Google gives away products for free? So what? Anti-competitiveness is what you're angry about? Maybe Google doesn't WANT to fight with other companies. But apparently, that's what you want. Any way you put it, Google gives a lot more than Apple and earns less profit than Apple. Capitalism isn't bad in any way, but this is just another way to show that Google actually cares about their customers and users and loves to give back to the people. And if that isn't the case, it's a way to win the hearts of the people by giving away products for free. Google's cloud is free, Drive is less expensive, and so much more. People like it. It's not predatory pricing because people are still going to kiss the ground that Apple walks on. Google isn't "out to get" any other companies like Apple... Like I said before, Google still makes less profit than Apple. But anyway, how is giving away freebies a bad thing? I used to think that you were just a fanboy, now I know you're just crazy.

Really? Google cares more about their consumers then Apple? Does Google care enough to spend months on designing the BOX for ONE product to deliver to their consumer? Does Google obsess over every last detail- like that little arrow on the strip of plastic that covers your phone screen when you first tug it off? Does Google spend MILLIONS of dollars on making their retail store as beautiful as possible?
Apple is the only company that cares SO much about the experience their consumer has. Sorry if they like making a profit, and you don't spend your holidays and weekends working your tail off to get it.

Thank you. I was wondering when we were going to hear the "you don't like Apple because you can't afford their products" rationalization. Yes, that's got to be the ONLY reason not to buy Apple products, any other reason is MADNESS, JUST MADNESS!

there is a difference between. obsessive compulsive and caring for your customers and they are not connected. you didn't express one idea of caring.. just various parts of advertisement, which is some thing apple is good at.

Apple does it to make their products look good. They don't care about user experience. If they did, they'd allow micro SD cards and a tiny bit of freedom.

I find it funny how you always try to and successfully make any article into a fan warzone between Google and Apple, in this case Mozilla is also affected.

How is Google being anti competitive? Chrome is "Free" to use. It does not cost anything. Most if not all of Google's products are free. Microsoft and Apple charge for their products and services. Microsoft has licensing fees and Apple, well, Apple must charge to use any of their products and of course Safari is free to use on any Windows PC. I'm guessing it's some kind of deal with Microsoft and Apple.

Giving away stuff for free (ie at a loss) is anti competitive. They're trying to put people out of business and have a monopoly. It's actually illegal in some countries.
92. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
at a loss? you are such a fool, you can't possibly be this clueless. Google gives it away because they make money off advertising they stick in EVERYTHING.

i was just watching that on the news today at the gym. i forgot all about that. Been in the works for quite a while. The news was basically telling everyone to join in if they bought ipods at that time.

Way to go there PhoneArena, your journalistic standards are showing through again!
Either you don't believe in research, or you simply don't care...
First some facts: Windows RT is NOT Windows 8. According to Microsoft Windows RT is a new member of the Windows Family(like Windows Embedded is a member of the Windows Family)
Second, there will be Windows 8 AND Windows RT tablets.. they will not be the same... Windows 8 tablets will use X86/64, and will support all legacy applications.
Windows RT will only run on ARM, and WILL NOT support legacy applications.
Mozilla and Google are free to write a browser for Windows 8 tablets(and both have stated that they plan to do that, incorporating the METRO programming language)
They cannot write a desktop browser for Windows RT... this is the same behavior that Apple uses for the iPad..
I hope this article is updated with the correct facts.
