    First off, I find this post hilarious and I completely agree with it.

    Second.... this quote is soooo true, but what I dont understand is, that is the marketing scheme EVERYONE uses, yet since people enjoy hating on apple they only point out what apple is doing.

    Htc did the SAME exact scheme with the mytouch. They released it with a little more memory and they gave it a head phone jack and i believe they added swype to it..... Why didnt it come with the head phone jack on the first model?!?!

    so again... everyone uses this marketing scheme.... its nothing new... put your time to use and help promote android instead of putting it to use trying to "bring down apple"

    Android will go so much farther if all the people would put their creavity to promoting it instead of wasting it on trying to bring others down!

    First I want to agree with one thing, Put time towards promoting android and less time bashing apple.

    The one reason I can personally give for hating apple and wanting it to be pulled down is he following.

    Apple mixes tech and fashion. I have nothing against tech being fashionable.. but, suddenly whoever has the prettiest tech has the "best tech". Which, if you don't like apple's style is a horrible irony...

    Just because that football player's apple product is shinier than my product doesn't mean he knows more than I do.. (then again, I don't like apple style anyway)

    When people ask me what phone I have and I tell them I have the Motorola Droid, many times their first reaction is "ew, but it's so [heavy/bulky/huge/ugly]". And I want to beat them over the head with my [heavy/bulky/huge/ugly] phone. Especially because I like its unforgiving, sharp, industrial design over any streamlined, sleek, trendy Apple device out there.

    My problem with apple's style is it seems to be all the same... and considering how many people have iphones.. it is amazing people aren't sick of seeing apple style.. maybe that is what the millions of iaccessories are for.

    I think there is a definite loss of... shall we say common sense, if your average healthy user is concerned with the weight of the cell phone... big macho football player can't lift the big bad droid? XD

    oh well..
