"Sh*t Apple Fanatics Say" videos are pretty spot on

Lol.... Gotta admit that was pretty funny

Althought the "things that were said" were pretty humorous, and stereotypically enhanced (regarding Mac users), I'd say the skit was a little over the top.
This is going to start a huge "iPhone vs Android" fight, so I'll just say a few things before it starts.
We can stereotype any set of users based on what we see in marketting or movies or poorly-made YouTube videos. "Mac vs PC" was one of the best battle-starting ads I've seen, but it was executed without resorting to childish bashings. Facts were presented, and humor was piled on to lighten it up.
We can also stereotype Android users. Based on the customers I deal with daily, I can draw up and present an image of an Android user. These customers want to customize, but complain about how unresponsive and unreliable the phone is. "Mine can multitask." "Mine can fold space and time with the speed of 4G". "My phone can be customized to make it MINE." "My contacts dissapeared." "My apps dissapeared." "My phone keeps locking up". "I can't connect to the internet".
I hear it all day.

good point bud. There are pros and cons to both os's.

Yeah the videos were barely 'ok', though I did laugh a couple of times, especially with the 'Macs NEVER get viruses....okay it got infected by Trojan once...'
As for android fans....
"My phone can be customized to make it MINE."
- this one kills me the most cause its so over the top.
I love how literally for years, after any android device is released the fanatics say "This phone has zero lag!" and then Google goes ahead and releases project butter...classic

high end phones dont have lag. project butter was designed to make it even nicer. There is a big difference between no lag and crazy smooth. Besides, project butter helps more with the "non high end" handsets than anything.
Were you the guy in the video?
88. E.N. (Posts: 2218; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
If project butter was for the non-high end handsets, why was Google showcasing all the MAJOR improvements you would see in the Galaxy Nexus? The Nexus is not a flagship device, but it's definitely not low-end either. And haven't people said that if Project Butter was the only feature in jellybean, it would still be well worth the update? Seems like we're talking about more than just low-end smartphones and a small speed bump.
Was I the guy in the video? Didn't you film this yourself? You should already know the answer is No.

The point of me asking if you were the guy in the video is because you are acting like that fanboy. Find the humor in it instead of being so defensive.
The galaxy nexus uses an outdated OMAP4 chip that you will probably never see in another phone again. On a pure tech term its a lower-middle end phone.
And of course they show it on their Nexus device, thats the whole darn point of the nexus is to be direct updates through google. So no, its an upgrade for the whole ecosystem. The biggest benefits will be to the lower end handsets that will greatly benefit from "butter" much more so than the nicer handsets.
And again, who cares. Nice sets were already lag free. Adding FPS to the animations just makes it nicer. There is a difference between "lag free animation' and "high FPS animation". Butter just takes it from the former to the latter.

Well, lower end or not, it didn't stop Android users from saying the Galaxy Nexus "has zero lag" when it released (which by the way is/was completely false). Don't say it doesn't lag if it clearly does. And If lower end phones were the main target, they could have used the Nexus S 4G to showcase project butter, it is being updated to Jellybean after-all.
Yeah I got the point of your joke, did you get the point of mine? And I'm not acting the same as the guy in the vid. I'm not talking about Apple, iPhones, 4G/LTE, viruses, or any of that. I was just talking about lag and the sh*t android users say. Try not to be so defensive.

It's because only the stock android had lag prior to Jellybean. Phones such as the Galaxy S2 really don't have lag because the OEM has made it that way by using / adding different hardware such as graphics acceleration.

Ipad's resource intensive app also have lag. Apple fan are really silly if they can't tell that lag happens when resource intensive app run on slower hardware.
86. bobnnate (Posts: 25; Member since: 28 Aug 2011)
just like how apple reinvents itself every time right?
85. DFranch (Posts: 129; Member since: 20 Apr 2012)
When talking about the Mac vs. PC adds, I don't think you can say "facts were presented". Maybe if you change "presented" to "distorted" that would be a fair statement. That said, they were usually funny.

An article who's sole purpose is a flame war. How wonderful.
15. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2614; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Actually the point is to get everyone to laugh together, rather than fight. I've just lost hope that fanboys can ever be respectful humans.
It is possible to laugh and not start a flame war, but that's on you guys.
28. Droiddoes (unregistered)
So you decided to fan the flames huh? Brilliant.
31. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2614; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Learn to laugh at yourselves instead of starting fights.
The videos are funny, that's all there is to it.
36. Jay_F (Posts: 236; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
I agree, if that were possible, but I just can't see it happening. Too much hatred over the years for whatever reason. It's childish, believe me I know, and I wish everybody could follow the "to each his own" philosophy. Unfortunately this thread was like walking into the middle east and showing a video about things Israelis say about themselves to Palestinians.
47. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2614; Member since: 26 May 2011)
I'm extremely impressed at how civil the comment thread has been. Really just one person going overboard.
Of course, now I've jinxed it by saying that...
49. Jay_F (Posts: 236; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
And the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded to Michael Heller for getting the two opposite sides of the mobile world together and making them laugh with one another. lol

I don't know. Flame war starts when people just don't want to laugh.
Anyways, this is funny one Michael. HAHAHAHAHA
I hope there's for android and wp fans :)))

Yes, it is a troll article but it's quite amusing

I like to make fun of apple fanatics but that was weak and not funny
63. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
Its american humor. You wouldnt know. If you cant laugh at this, you were tragically born without a sense of humor.
71. denied911 (banned) (Posts: 361; Member since: 31 May 2012)

you are like one really big joke for me so I think I have sense of humor

Wow these videos are so true !! =) I actually know some iPhone fans who actually said some of those things mentioned in the clips !

The oldest apple excuse in the book "It doesnt have viruses"
20. tedkord (Posts: 3954; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
If you want to see this for real, watch the movie MacHeads. The real deal is actually worse.

26. Android4u (Posts: 456; Member since: 16 Aug 2012)
Sorry that I keep posting quotes from the video lol but Damn.... “its just a $50 cable" lol wooo... “ I could never date a android user" lol.
27. nwright94 (unregistered)
I love apple and these videos make me laugh. All of us fanboys,be it apple, android, windows phone, or blackberry can get a little crazy at times and nobody can deny it. People just need to lighten up :)
32. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
good article for a Friday. it was funny and I have said some stuff in there.. not going to say which..
54. kingpet13 (Posts: 139; Member since: 02 Feb 2012)
I knew you were a major fanboy. :P JK. I'm glad that you admit that you say that stuff. I can't wait to see how much of the stuff that I said when the android one comes out. I've probably said most of the ones they think of.
37. joaolx (Posts: 337; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
From everything I see in the web the Android fans are the worst fans. In terms of commenting about Apple.
39. joaolx (Posts: 337; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
The videos are still funny. And yes I love Apple, Google and Samsung.
38. Sniggly (Posts: 6496; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
I laughed at this one, and I know I'll laugh if they do an Android fanboy video as well.
I mean, let's face it, we all go nuts here. Some worse than others, sure, but these are products we're passionate about. No shame in that.
*obligatory fanboy statement*
Though there IS shame in owning everything Apple. ZING ZING ZING!
41. luxzy801 (Posts: 115; Member since: 16 Jun 2010)
I hope they make an Android fanboy video too, it will also be funny to throw in some Microsoft fanboys and make a windows fanboy video.
Stuff like this should make everyone laugh, especially when you hear something that you always say LOL!!!
46. ilkinandr92 (Posts: 43; Member since: 07 Aug 2012)
Hahahaha this is funny. Love Krapple fan boys they give me a good laugh and those videos remind me of a friend of mine xD
