    So this really frustrated me today...I was using my hero, and someone came up to me and started asking about what apps it has. I was fairly excited that someone else was interested in the Android platform and happily started telling her about the apps I had installed and etc.

    Then she said "Yeah, that ShopSavvy app makes me want to get an iPhone too. But I dont want to pay $99/month for a stupid phone."

    ...She thought it was an iPhone the whole time...Plus the iPhone's Compare Everywhere app sucks because the camera can never read the barcodes anyways.

    She sounds like a bit of an idiot.

    It's always going to be a problem - however I can do all sorts of things with my phone for free, that my iPhone-owning friends have had to pay for. Viva open software!

    I'm actually not sure which frustrated me more, the fact that she has no idea what Android is, or the fact that she actually grouped me with the sheep that are Apple users...
