You may not have seen the followup stories yet. We covered all that. On the day this happened, most people (us included) suspected Samsung. As it turns out, we were wrong.

You may get tagged a lot as a "fanboy" or Apple apologist or whatever, but it doesn't have to be personal. Follow the logical flow of evidence and data and the tale tells itself independent of anyone's personal evangelism for a particular platform.
"Microsoft is being uncharacteristically aggressive with the Surface."I'm guessing you weren't around for the launch of the Xbox, Windows 95, several versions of Office... :)

@macgasm Maybe, but if you download one of those and toss it, you're no worse off.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Apple Planning On Checking Specs Before Letting Customers Download Mountain Lion?
@MaccyDaddy I have absolutely no idea what your point was.
"There’s nothing worse than PAYING FOR and downloading an application from the App Store only to have it barely work because your system doesn’t have the resources necessary to run it optimally."
Reminds me of an article I read on The Onion once: "Driver error in car accident completely ruled out by driver"

@lucascott The difference: The sales ban Apple was going after is, at this moment, real. All the stuff that might happen to make this work out for Samsung isn't yet.

@DennyCraneftw And does that work with every single Android phone across the board?
1 year ago on Forget Android: Hackers And Modders Should Go iPhone
I'm not a hacker and I defer to your experience on this, but I don't see you addressing a few of the main selling points: The iPhone - ALL iPhones - are one-click rootable. If Apple changes the code, just root it again. Not all Android devices can brag that. Android on the whole can't say "it's just as easy."
Cydia sucks, but you have exactly the same advantage: One click, and it's installed. There are several points the Lifehacker author made about Android vs Cydia which you haven't addressed.
Not looking to get all up in your face, here. I'm simply saying there seems to be more to the picture than what you're saying.
@AjayGanapathy I guess if the price was right it'd make a nice ma or pa phone, ya know?

Well, "Freedom" isn't really what Android offers, but that wasn't my point.
My point is that the elements that the EFF are complaining about are either non-problems or they mischaracterize how they work. Or their suggested alternatives aren't viable.

@Jezzar Your ability to logically argue your points is pretty weak (I asked which phone outsells the iPhone, and you attempt to distract by presenting data I've never argued), but more to the point: You're clearly just here to insult people and be a twit because you don't have to look anyone in the eye when you do it. I'm open to having my mind changed (and have had it changed on certain points) by Android advocates, but I'll never let trolls run the show around here no matter which operating system in their favorite.

@Jezzar That slippery slope of record profits and deep market entrenchment. Apple's days must be numbered.
@Jezzar Ok. So one review. That's a good start.
As for the 4S losing a lot of their following: You sure don't read the news much. Second highest quarterly profits in the history of American business after the 4S launch. Is that the sign of rats jumping a sinking ship?
I look forward to your explanation of the sales figures. Bonus points if you can do it with data instead of insults. Seems like, to you, the iPhone successes are based on people being stupid and its shortcomings are based on a lot of exaggerated claims about how the world sees things. Or, in other words: People who agree with you are right, people who don't are wrong.
Me? I prefer data. That's just my thing.
Wow. Kinda cynical, aren't ya?
