Why does phonearena (or any other article) ALWAYS say Apple, the Cupertino based company...... i think by now we ALL know where they are based out of so why keep calling them that? Maybe its just me but i dont introduce my friends as John, from Los angeles Ca.......

That's the way that the wsj and nut and other publishers refer to a company when talking about them financially

It's actually a (misleaded) journalism resource... As I guess the editors are not journalists they are using it wrong anyway... The idea is not to repeat the same name more than three times per paragraph, so they exchange apple by a synonym. It should be Apple, and then say the Cupertino based company, and then something like the fruit company, etc... But by saying apple, the cup... they are doing it wrong

"With iPhone, every handset works the same. We think Android is very fragmented and more fragmented every day." Bull. iPhone 2G, Phone 3G, iPod (1st gen) and iPod (2nd gen) are unable to run iOS 3. Fragmentation exists in Apple as well. By numbers, I feel like there are more apple products that are running older versions of the OS. Difference between Google and Apple: Apple and Steve Jobs are too damn arrogant to admit that fragmentation exists with their products, because their products are sent from the heavens. At least Google acknowledges the fragmentation and realizes that something needs to be done, and actually ARE making an effort to fix the issue.
