    Instead of all these "my grandmother can beat up your chauffeur's phone" threads, how about if we tell each other what we think of this technology in terms of common comparisons?

    If your phone is like a children's plaything...

    The iPhone is a security Blanket. Every 2 year old want's it, it makes them feel good and they cry when you take it away.

    The Nexus One is Play Dough - it's fun and you can mold it into anything, but it's still just trying to be something else.

    Droid X is a Big Wheel ... a good way to go around the block as long as you stay on the sidewalk.

    The HTC EVO is a Super Soaker. It makes you the most dangerous kid in the water battle until you run out of water.

    A Blackberry is your dad's shoes - it makes you feel like a grown-up.

    WinMo is a Diaper - everyone wants to p*ss on it and it's full of sh*t half the time.

    I always liked this one. It kind of works for Android vs iPhone too...

    If the task is to crack this:
    [​IMG]
    This is a MS Windows PC:
    [​IMG]
    Inexpensive and simple, but gets the job done; the inexperienced can hurt themselves if they're not carful.
    This is an Apple Mac:
    [​IMG]
    Slightly more expensive, but beautifully engineered and safer to use while still simple, and still getting the job done.
    This is the PC some Apple haters would use:
    [​IMG]
    Expensive, difficult to use except in experienced hands, and totally over specced for the task, but it could do more; and therefore they think it's much better than the Apple.

    :thinking: Shouldn't an analogy be something, which has properties that can describe a second thing? I only see one half, not sure if it's the 'anal' or the 'ogy'; and whichever of those you're trying to depict, I think using a picture of a couple of kids is just wrong!
     
  7. Where's the analogy, amigo?

    You COULD put streamers and a bell and a basket on the tricycle.:p

    Of course, you could also put those exhaust pipes that shoot fire on the bike. :D
