Rush Limbaugh says Apple is Republicans and Google is Democrats

0. phoneArena 05 Aug 2013, 09:27 posted on

"I would venture to say that nine out of 10 bloggers writing high-tech hate Apple," Limbaugh pointed out in one of its arguments. "Apple is the equivalent of the Republicans on these blogs"…

Apple- Overpriced, outdated, uppity people. Google- Price is right, cutting edge technology, and everyday people...yup...sounds about right! LOL

Disagree to a certain extent. iPhone 5 still holds its ground to flagships today.

Google being akin to democrats is true as they like to control, force things upon users that they do not want, and abuse their power and reach in many ways.

You just described Apple, not Google.

Didnt realize apple forced you to work for others and owned all your business. You have no idea what a communist is do you...

Google is akin to Democrats, who would appear to be about choice and personal freedom, but is actually about monitoring your life and tailoring it to its values, all the while raking in huge corporate profits.

Apple is akin to Republicans, who would appear to be about doing things Right, but is actually about dictating how you should live your life and tailoring it to its values, all the while raking in huge corporate profits.

If you are part of the apple ecosystem, you are under apple's control and must do as they say. You do not have the freedom of choice. Got an app that apple suspiciously doesn't like? Not allowed in the store. Want a custom ringtone? Must use itunes. Must use itunes for everything. Want a custom DEFAULT browser or DEFAULT keyboard? Forget about it. Must use apples. Even with a "jailbreak" you still can't do all of these things. Apple is all about control. So maybe not exactly communist, but more like a dictatorship.

since when, exactly?

I don't even mean this in terms of hating on the phone as much as the competition has improved far faster on both UI and hardware capability.

he's not really right... blog writers love apple (not sure why, high price, mediocre tech usually = fail) it's the blog commentators that hate apple. i actually hate apple less than i hate their iFollowers, man, those guys are uppity, delusional and just plain annoying

It's fluid running iOS 6. Still one of the best cameras on a smartphone. Still has a beautiful design. Still has a all around great ecosystem.

Anything else?

you can call something overpriced but I don't think that you are the one to determine what overpriced means.
Google is lower because typically the phones are cheaper and of poor build

As for why the writer of this article thought it had anything to do with phone news... I am confused

Very true+1 that includes Darkjedi Fanboy™
And he criticised me and my wife. Look how nasty this rotten company is. He praises and loves Apple. No wonder Droid does was right.
Apple needs to be Bankrupt. Right now ™ every company should stop supplying goods and services to them

The iPhone 5 runs smoother with a dual core setup than some Android's do with quad. Not to mention the graphics chip in the phone is still incredibly powerful.

Specs are often mistaken as determining consumer experience. That couldn't be far from the truth.

I agree, but it's not above Apple to use the hardware angle when they are better as well when it suits them

Actually, your point only proves what an iDiot Limbdouche is; DarkestofJedddiiiii is a Democrat whose head explodes if you say anything about his DaddyBama and he owns and loves his iThingy; conversely, I am more of a rePublikan and I simply abhor iRubbish, my huge Galaxy Note 2 is what does it for me. My friends (also who aren't Dems') also love their Androids!

Thank you! That's exactly why Apple = Liberalism in the tech sense.

AppleCare is useful yet optional. Obamacare is forced yet costly and poorly implemented.

Yeah... I'm pretty conservative and at one point considered myself a Republican. And the only thing I hate more than Rush Limbaugh is Apple. I've always thought Rush was obnoxious and a very poor leader for conservatives to idolize. Apple is the OS for more simple minded people who don't like complexity and I don't think political party lines holds an exclusive to simple minded following. But again that's only my personal opinion.

however battery life is crappy and cannot accomplish one of the simple task in the world. Send a damn mp3 via bluetooth and make it work. iphone 5 is great dont get me wrong but It time to say "Apple the world is bigger than you think"

Did you just say battery life sucks on the iPhones 5? You don't know what you're talking about.

Optional, like iTunes?

iTunes isn't required to activate an iPhone.

It is required to put music on an iPhone, though. That's pretty damn restrictive.

Mxy, some days I seriously wonder how your body functions while you type here, since you exhibit such low brainpower you can't possibly operate your necessary life functions while spouting your bullcrap here.
