    I decided to take a gander at some of the apple forums to see what everyone thinks about the new phone and did a quick search for "android". I was really surprised about how many people were praising the android OS.

    As soon as 3 fanboys would chime in on a thread about how much better the iphone os is and how sloppy and slow the android os is, an iphone user with some knowledge would come right back and ask if they really knew anything about android.

    All the fanboys had the same response "I played with one for a couple of minutes in a store" Thats when the people with knowledge would explain it takes a little more than a couple of minutes in a store to truly appreciate android how we've been using actual multi-tasking. They go on to explain how useful widgets are compared to their apps and all the usual stuff that we all know about.

    Half of the kool-aid kids were comparing the 3gs to the cliq when making their comparisons and basing android on that phone.

    Overall though, I was pleasantly surprised how many of them were defending and trying to explain android to the rest of the popped collar crowd.

    Hey now, I pop MY collar from time to time and I despise iOS and pretty much anything to do with Apple. Next time think a little longer before you write. Some of us geeks are pretty cool too :D.

    As for the rest of your post I agree 100%. I myself have converted a couple fanboys to Android on the strength of what the EVO can do.

    I've had very mixed responses. Some basically saying "Android sucks ass." while others are a bit more intellectual. :p

    Depends on where you go.
    The Apple boards are heavily censored so if you look around android discussions are stamped out or heavily moderated.

    Now if you look at an Apple fanboy board like macrumors your going to find a totally different scene.

    They really are not that hard to find..... they are everywhere spouting apple marketing materials.

    Yeah, I used to belong to a board when I had my 3gs but I couldn't stand all the kool-aid that was being drank. So I left and never looked back. I forgot the name of it though. It was filled with uninformative self back patters than anything else.

    Edit: Just my opinion but popped collars are like sunglasses at night, serves no purpose, more of a distraction, and the only other people that actually think that it looks good are the guys from that show jersey shore. Again, just my opinion

    I suppose thats the way apple make everyone think what they spout is true, by stamping out anything against it.
    I think apple modeled themselves on the film the stepford wives. :D
