Oh wait, so because there are post that other people are having issues with their Dincs, that means I should believe that my phones that "JUST WORK" are defective and have stability issues. I'm telling people why I am currently experiencing, how is that a lie? Can you show my saying anywhere that I hate my phones and they are giving me issues? No you can't!

Again, do you have proof that I steal apps for my Mac??? HINT: I've Googled and reported it twice since I originally said it. It proves you are the liar here!

You've google what? You said you got iWork free vthat is a pay app

You said macs are useless if you have to pay for apps.

I know you said it and so do you. I'm not going to waste hours going through months of posts. We both know the truth.

I see a lot of gibber grabber...but no link! All you need to do is put up a link proving that I admitted to stealing Mac apps and you get a FREE, brand spankin' new, never before used, hot off the press, Apple logo and iOS 5 carrying, no flash having, notification shade stealing, call dropping, 3.5 inch slice of haven (LOL!) that is affectionately known as the iPhone 4S!

GoodFella is waiting to take what rightfully yours...you better get a move on it. Btw +1 to GoodFella.

Yes, you should post those links for me please! What I recall saying is that "My wife's DInc is the most stable phone I have ever seen.". So if you have something with me saying something different...please post it!

Nor do I recall saying iOS 5 doesn't have any new useful features. I think i said something like there is no difference on my ipad, it took over 6 hours to upgrade, and i'm pissed because theyre taking away Siri... an app that worked just fine on my OG iPad. But maybe I blacked out mid-post, so yes could you post the link for that too?

But the one I want you to post is where I said I steal apps for my Mac. I have $399 burning a whole in my pocket and an upgrade available with your name on it if you can prove I said it!

Anti-Apple? No, I'm anti-BS no matter what company is shoveling it! So I won't turn a blind eye to Apple's BS just because I love my Mac, iPodSSS, or iPad. And you shouldn't just because you love your phone.

I've been saying the same thing about my iPad. I tell people it stutters and pauses, but iOS fans keep saying I'm making it up. Well, after ios5 update, I can honestly say its no different. No added benefits at all, and I lose my Siri app on the 15th! Yea, iOS5??? FTL :(


I quote "no added benefits at all"

Okay...to everyone else who can read this...is it me, or is he proving my point in post #158? No difference...no added benefit... Am I not saying the exact same thing here!?!?

I didn't say iOS 5 doesn't have any useful features! And I think I even corrected MYSELF a few post later on that same article about liking the tab browsing and split keyboard! Try again lady!

You asked for a link and you got one. Of course in fandroid fantasy land being called on your trolling means nothing.

You posted a link that proved me right and you wrong! Do you not see that? I still say there was no added benefit. Those features are cool, but not a benefit to me. Does that make a lair, or does it mean I have a different view on what's beneficial to me on MY device?

Come on Taco, try not to spin things. I edited the "mid-tier" article because I had meant to say that iPhone was lined up with the "upper mid-tier" pricing that Verizon seemed to be creating.

As I've said many times, Apple wants the OS itself to be simple, easy, intuitive, and overall more invisible than Android or WP7. It's a design choice set to make the apps shine, which gives the OS a feel of not being much more than an app launcher.

I never said that Google couldn't have or even didn't copy the iPhone. As I've said many times, everyone (including Apple) steals from everyone else, because that's how the industry evolves and gets better.

I named both Sniggly and remix as part of our Android fanboys. I even called remix on sounding biased just yesterday, actually.

Just because you remove context and make it sound bad doesn't mean you should continue to repeat inaccuracies.

I'm sorry if you feel that way, but it doesn't make it untrue. Steve wasn't perfect and Apple isn't perfect. There's a dark side to every company and every person. That doesn't mean we ignore it and stop expecting better.

When Jobs worked for Atari he screwed Woz out of thousands of dollars.

Jobs lied for years about fathering a child, claiming he was sterile.

Under Jobs, Apple tried to get the U.S. government to declare jailbreaking to be a felony offense under the DMCA.

Under Jobs, Apple has been adamant about "protecting its IP" while copying and stealing from other companies without so much as a single voluntary royalty payment.

Apple has allowed human rights violations to happen in the factories it contracts with, and completely ignored requests by workers and human rights groups to intervene... but will have workers arrested for losing/stealing its products, and will deploy its own police force to recover lost prototypes.

Under Jobs, Apple has repeatedly sued news sites and blobs which have leaked things like the iPhone 4 prototype, seeking to destroy those sites because the sites were creating free advertising and hype for the Apple products involved.

I shouldn't have bothered with this list, because you'll dismiss or ignore every point I made. It's pathetic, really. Oh dear god, people like me exist and comment here, Taco. Get over it. You don't think anyone else here runs into situations on the internet where the majority of commenters disagree with their views? Why do you get to be special and demand that we all get banned, especially since you're the one who's usually instigating issues?

You were in there with Sniggly under the Android camp in the OS competition article. Pretty sure I even asked you if it was okay to have your name there.

He was an epic jerk.
Only thing he invented was - charging for the apps!(APP STORE)
I've used apps on my phone since 2005!
I could name ton of them!
Many thousand of third party java written apps were available for free download before steve got a brilliant idea to make them look like he invented the whole thing, by making it and easyly understandable to even the housewives.(by throwing a dummy, beautifully designed, ridiculously simple and stripped down app launcher on a 3.5 inch touch screen. it wasn't a frigin OS at all. )And available. And chargeable.
There. That was his entire genius.

As for android being "unstable".
I'm using an xperia arc for 3 months now. Never had a crash. Perfectly stable. Only freezed on me twice when I pushed like 40 processes at once.
Two days ago it notified me I can update to 2.3.4. Downloaded it like a breeze, and working like a breeze.

What Apple is doing is the Angry Father Syndrome.
When they started Apple was the company of the rebels and misfits. And they took pride in their pirate culture and being square pegs in round holes. They have lived that thought and culture for such a long time that they have become a personality and character themselves. And now they are not able to tolerate any opposition and others rebelling against their established order. So everything that everyone else is doing is wrong and has to be put down.
