...or technology or anything like that. I am passionate, however, about hating Apple as much as my mind will allow. I think they are an awful, awful company. I saw an article in the news this morning about how they have blocked Samsung from selling their tablet (that's what an iPad is, for those of you already too committed to the Apple lexicon) in Australia.
I'm not going to get into it, because it is very very boring, but this one paragraph caught my eye:
"The dispute between the companies began in April when Apple sued Samsung in the US, claiming the Galaxy products “slavishly” imitated the designs and technologies used for its iPad and iPhone".
I can settle this one if they'd like me too.
Having just rid myself of the iPhone I was gifted, I switched to a Samsung Galaxy S2, and I can confirm that the Samsung phone in no way imitates the iPhone, because it is in fact much much better and more advanced than an iPhone could even aspire to be. It is lighter, the screen is bigger, the interface is smarter and more customizable, the camera is better, the video is better, there are less restrictions, and the apps are just as good if not exactly the same.
I picked up an iPhone 4 the other day and honestly thought I'd gone back in time.
Basically, if you are in the market for a new phone sometime soon, and you have the option to get something other than an iPhone, and you still get one... you are a bit of an idiot. Don't feel locked into the Apple family. Steve Jobs is a cunt of a Dad. Disown the prick, do some research, and adopt yourself into a better home.
