    I recently saw the following comments at the bottom of a review page when the Droid came out. There was a 'discussion' about the multi-tasking capability of the Android system.. some folks were claiming this capability drained the battery too fast... others were singing the praises of this capability. The humor came when an iPhone fan said:

    "I am so glad my iPhone doesn't multi-task, my battery lasts all day!"

    --which was followed by a comment from a quick-witted Droid phone owner saying:

    "I am so glad my car tops out at 30 mph, I get great gas mileage!"

    Like Mater says, (he was the Tow Truck in the movie "Cars"), I don't care who yar, that's funny right thar." hahahaha

    By the way, the multi-tasking capability is a SINGLE feature that once you get it, it's hard to 'go back.' I love that capability.

    Talk about quick witted! Didn't see that one haha. And yes multi tasking is nice, without it some of the android apps would be pointless/non-existant

    if I had an iPhone, I wouldn't be 'so glad.' I'd be complaining and screaming to Apple until they implemented multitasking.

    Fix the friggin multitasking!!!! FTFM!

    That's a great response. I'll have to use that analogy next time one of my Apple fanboy friends tries to tout all the things his iPhone can do that make it SO much better than my Droid, or that "make my phone dumb."

    lol @ quoting "Mater". That is Larry the cable guy, and he uses that expression like every 3rd sentence in his stand-up comedy. ;)


    And I have come to the conclusion long ago that iPhone people don't need droids because they, themselves, are droids. They all carry on with their lives as if everything they own is the best, and find ways to rationalize the downfalls in a way that still makes it seem like it is better than everything else. :rolleyes:

    The iPhone battery sucks. Trust me. They also break more than any other phone in existence.

    Rofl nice joke.

    But just a thing.. Since when iPhone battery is good?

    #1 It sucks. Already had one and mfgod...
    #2 Its freaking irreplaceable!!!!!! If you happen to damage somehow iPhone's battery, your doomed..
    #3 I have a HTC Hero, if I don't go around playing with the cool applications all day long, just doing calls, sms'ing + using the hero as an mp3 player my battery lasts 2 days. Now that's a good battery.


    Kind regards

    They all buy right into Apple's spin on it... it's not a problem, it's a feature!

    BTW, I bought an iCar - it only has one seat. I get great gas mileage now that I don't have to carry any friends or stuff around! My friends have all done the same, and now there are 5 times as many cars on the road, all the roads are jammed and we can't get anywhere. So now we don't drive at all. :( I called Crapple (the manufacturer of the iCar) on their help line and explained my problem. They explained that not driving at all is an optional feature, and saves even more gas. Now that I know that not driving isn't actually a problem, I am once again happy Crapple iCar owner! :D

    Yeah, I bought a $199 pair of headphones from them, and I thought that they were DOA because I couldn't hear anything out of them... I called the manufacturer, and a tech support member explained to me that this is how they are supposed to work. As it turns out, the silence of the headphones is a feature designed to save my ears from actually having to listen to music.

    What a bargin. $199, and I am sure to not go deaf from listening to music! I love these headphones, they are the best!

    The 2 faced iPhoneboy:

    "Lots of choices is bad. Apple should make everything themselves because fragmentation is bad."

    "iPhone is great because there are thousands and thousands of 3rd party apps!"

    Apple doesn't make 199$ headhpones, they where probably 3rd party, and just paid apple a lot of money to have them sell their product.

    Funny part is, now devs are making most of the "iPhone" apps for android. I just picked up the "Bump" App for free and its supposed to be compatible with iPhones version.
