    Apple is just now what they didn't plan to become... another Microsoft. Now Google took Apple's place.

    You know, I have a blinding hate for apple.

    However, I would just like to point one thing out.....

    That article seems very biased....

    Now back to my blinding apple hatred.

    Steve jobs really needs to die in a fire... I hate the man. If it wasn't for his sheer ego, I may still have some favorable view towards apple.. But, that guy drives me crazy.
    *edit*
    I disagree. Apple has never been open source to my knowledge, and apple has never encouraged tampering with their products.

    While Google might not encourage certain things openly for warranty reasons. (Lets face it, they can't pay for every mistake that a novice makes to brick a phone), They are not like apple in their desire to maintain such strict control over everything.

    I do think we are beginning to see apples "true colors". We should never forget that companies are not our friends. NONE OF THEM not google, not apple and not microsoft. Apple wanted to be "different" but, look at where the "think different" slogan is now.. Being touted by a company which acts the exact same way as the person its suppose to not be mimicking.

    This isn't even really about apple for me in a lot of ways, My statements apply to all companies.. They want your money, nothing more, nothing less.

    I hate apple fanboys because, they refuse to admit there are better cheaper products. ( Cowon S9 anyone?). I hate PC fanboys because, lets face it... who "likes" microsoft....

    Getting to the point.. All fanboys generally result in the same thing, blind loyalty, which is never under any circumstances good.

    and in a few years, your kids will hate Google, the new "evil" one on the block..there will always be an evil entity to hate..they will hate it because you, the parents liked and used it..it's just the cycle of things. apple, from what i remember wanted to think different, not do for free, they have always wanted to make money, even when they started in Steves Garage. To those who hate Jobs so much, what the hell do you really know about the man? truly? What is it that you really know to be true you hate him so much? no one here knows him well enough to know what he really is like. People just want to be in the in crowd, follow the herd, who is the one to hate this year, who is the villain until we find some one else.

    It's a free country, you can hate who you what for what ever reasons you want,but really, c'mon. Who really cares? Is this all that matters to you in your life? hateing jobs and wishing he die in a fire? WTF is wrong with people anyway? :thinking:
     
  5. It's gonna be very hard not to love Google since they're not self-centered control freaks like Apple is today.

    by reading all the bad threads about Apple... I think im coming to the conclusion of that its not Apple that people really hate... I think its more Steve Jobs that they hate.... which is sad that one person can ruin it for a whole bunch of great products.

    I also completely agree with the statement above. There will always be an "evil" company. Its classic... You cant have good without evil.

    apples closed source iphone OS must loose battle against open source Android.

    That is inevitable.

    You will have to do that. Unless you reset it. (go to apple.com for info on that) but I think once it's jeilbroken it stays that way.

    Steve Jobs is a genius IMO, much like Bill Gates, Dan from Sprint, etc, They are all geniuses.

    O and FYI they really don't care what you think cause there are 1000 people behind you who have a different opinion.

    Sadly... the reality is that is all that matters.

    Luckily, I can still hate the sheer hypocrisy.

    Oh well, As another users said, the time is better spent promoting android and enjoying life.
