Why is everybody so butthurt over apple?
#315 to #15 - anon (07/23/2012) [-]
No because the Windows tablet was **** . That's why it didn't take off, it was a computers operating system in a 3kg tablet with poor touchscreen and exactly the same as a laptop but worse. The iPad and Galaxy use operating systems not found on computers, optimized for tablets. To say Apple copied the patent is stupid because not only are the designs completely different but the functionality is. That would be like saying that Razer copied Apples patent just because Apple invented the mouse for computers, Razer's mice are different so it isn't copying the patent.

DEFINE APPLE FAGS!!! cause i own an iPad and they work great, I've tried droid phones and the touch isn't nearly as responsive and they don't have as many features, I think apple lays out and organizes things way better then droid/android/Samsung but that's just me but i think allot of people could agree that if you get an iPad or iPhone for like Christmas its not a bad thing, maybe if you were to save up it might be pricey but its defiantly worth it because its not only convenient but also really handy to just have, i understand why people hate the pricing but i mean you're getting a good product it's not like its unreasonable.
#323 to #179 - ervill (07/23/2012) [-]
Both of my brothers are apple fanatics. Ipad, Iphone, Imac, Macbooks and Apple TVs.
I must say that i like the feel of the android waay better. I have an HTC One X and a Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1, and they're better (Imo) than any other phone/tablet out there.

An applefag is someone who will only use apple products and thinks anyone who uses anything else is a failure and an idiot.
User avatar #17 to #15 - trollwoopnazi (07/22/2012) [-]
Microsoft invented the tablet about 5 years before the iPad came along.
Suck on that, applefags.
#36 to #17 - wilhamlin (07/22/2012) [-]
Honestly neither Apple nor Microsoft invented the tablet. The first "tablet" computer was released in 1989 by IBM
User avatar #189 to #36 - dadukesta (07/23/2012) [-]
Even though originally Bill Gates worked for IBM then screwed them over and made MS.

Really?
#38 to #37 - wilhamlin (07/22/2012) [-]
Yup, granted it isn't how we think of tablets today. In fact there have been many companies to try their hand at tablets even before the turn of the century
User avatar #39 to #38 - trollwoopnazi (07/22/2012) [-]
That's pretty interesting actually. What's it called?
#41 to #39 - wilhamlin (07/22/2012) [-]
IBM released them under their Thinkpad X series (I think the first one they released to the public was the x41)

You can't copyright the tablet... It's a matter of what makes up that tablet that can violate copyrights, otherwise there would only be one phone, one television, one car, etc...

There is only one acceptable apple product, and that is ipods due to convenience. after that everything is **** .
User avatar #33 to #26 - heraske (07/22/2012) [-]
iPod classic for me, but even then, that piece of **** has only 120-160 Gigs of storage, I don't remember a custom equalizer. **** . The rest is over priced for how much gigs they give you. I'd rather have a 100$ Mp4 with a SD card storage so I could just buy 64Gig SD cards and pop it in there. Have separate SD cards for Movies and Music, yenno? Something MORE ******* CONVENIENT THAN A ******* APPLE PRODUCT!
User avatar #296 to #33 - theoriginalzombie (07/23/2012) [-]
Only 120-160? If that isn't enough, then how much is?
User avatar #347 to #296 - heraske (08/03/2012) [-]
HD Movies and my Music, along with HD album arts. Also, I'd rather have a good equalizer that I can customize (I do not remember a equalizer customizer in the iPod classic)

i still use my sansa e280. it has 8gb of storage, with an easily changeable 16gb micro sd card attached. I also loaded rockbox on it, but i think the original firmware would support a 16gb card too (when the e280 was released, im pretty sure 256 mb cards were the **** ).

you know, you can get android versions of ipods, and they work WAY better.
User avatar #142 - thatevanguy (07/23/2012) [-]
Technically, since Apple is an American based company, the judge only has the authority to force Apple to put that notice up on it's UK website. www.apple.com/uk/

Just some information...don't hate me for it.
#152 to #142 - anon (07/23/2012) [-]
i see nothing either
User avatar #153 to #152 - thatevanguy (07/23/2012) [-]
Yeah, they'll probably hide it on some back page somewhere with a super tiny link to it so nobody sees it.
#157 to #153 - wilhamlin (07/23/2012) [-]
They haven't put it up yet because they're trying to appeal it
User avatar #160 to #157 - thatevanguy (07/23/2012) [-]
In that case, it probably will get appealed. The British government is out of it's place in this situation, both Microsoft and Apple are American based companies, so how do they have a right to tell Apple or Microsoft what to do?

Really? I don't really care about who came up with the idea first. A tablet's a goddamn tablet, and I don't own one.
User avatar #229 to #3 - ilovehitler (07/23/2012) [-]
I think it's more of how apple claimed their idea was being copied, even though they copied microsoft's tablet, which was released 8 years earlier.

I really don't like Apple. The only thing I own from them is an iPod touch.

But even at that, the top button (Sleep) Broke within a few months.
#88 to #19 - Visual (07/23/2012) [-]
Same. I hate their computers and iPads. I find their iPod line up okay though. Even though they only roll out actual innovative designs every few years on top of the mess of remarketed samey ******** . My iTouch is useful for music, Youtube, and Facebook for me only. I seldom play the overrated games and never use the cheap browser regularly except for porn lulz.

Apple has the big name company dildo too far up the ass to even be removed surgically.
#206 to #19 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
i just have an ipod 5th gen. the only reason i have this anyway is because after my zune broke i was pretty iffy about getting another one. that and i found this ipod on a KSL listing for like $40. i've had it for about a year and a half and it still works great. the only thing i want to change about it is getting a new battery. i think the current one in it is wearing out.

that aside, apple is only good for the ipod which is a genuinely good line of products. i consider anything else by them to be a complete waste of money and over hyped ******** , especially macs and the ipad
#32 to #19 - infernoburrito (07/22/2012) [-]
Get a samsung galaxy player. it's the same as an ipod touch only it runs on android, it's WAY easier to use. Plus it has expandable memory, and they won't charge you anything extra to get it.
User avatar #20 to #19 - ninjastarthrow (07/22/2012) [-]
Yeah me too, they're convenient. I will never own anything that is Apple, my friend gave me that iPod Touch for free. I will never give Apple my money.
#22 to #20 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/22/2012) [-]
I don't know why everyone hates Apple. My ipod nano lasted for ages until i lost it and we have a mac desk on my house because my brother studied design but still It has never slowed down (like it used to when we had PCs) and It works great.
User avatar #23 to #22 - ninjastarthrow (07/22/2012) [-]
They will do anything to make money, they make the same exact product just smaller and people **** their pants.
#24 to #23 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/22/2012) [-]
It's a company. I don't hear people hating Coke and it kills a lot of folk just for the money.
User avatar #49 to #23 - osskari (07/22/2012) [-]
isn't that the people's fault for ******** their pants...i have a mac and a ipod classic and they work fine but im still not throwing my money at them when they give out a new product...people are focusing too much on hating the whole company just because of the price of their products and ignoring that they actually make good products. anyway that's just my opinion
User avatar #209 to #22 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
we hate them because of macintosh and because they have a ******** marketing scheme that causes over-hype over insignificant things. nobody hates them because of ipods, which are pretty good mp3 players even if they are made by apple
#211 to #209 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
oh so it's another one of those "I am mad with them because i'm not enjoying my own life I need to put others down" thing you have going on this site?
#227 to #211 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
how do you know if i enjoy my life or not? for your information, i ******* love my life.
as for why i hate them, i already stated why. their products are ludicrously overpriced. their operating systems are so locked up, i wonder if i can even call them computers. their business model is a load of **** , to the point where they can change even the smallest, most insignificant thing and everyone has a stroke and throws their money at them. they won't even bring flash to the iphone or ipad.
< this is another good example, and the fact that they had such a fit over it that a judge got involved makes me laugh heartily. truly they are the biggest attention whore in all of the electronics industry
#231 to #227 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
and you know. all that's true. still I don't get mad when people are dumb enough to do that.

I didnt till you bitched like that. now i'm certain
#242 to #228 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
you-"you don't like apple because you don't like your life"
me-"here's some valid points on why i don't like apple"
you-"i didn't think you didn't like your life before, even though i stated that it was my opinion. now that you've presented valid points and even told me that contrary to what i have said, you actually quite like the life you're living. now i know for a fact that you hate your life"
or as you put it in much more comprehensive wording
"I didnt till you bitched like that. now i'm certain "

just... just wow. holy **** man, your logic is astounding. truly you are one of the greatest philosophers of this century. please grace me more with your flawless wisdom and timeless knowledge. you must win every debate you've ever provoked
#245 to #242 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
oh and to simplifi it. the fact that from the beginning when I generalized the hate for their own lives thing (the site, not you) you took it personal, speaks for itself.
User avatar #248 to #245 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
i'm not sure how... could you elaborate?
#257 to #248 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
it seemed you took it way too personal when I said that phrase. about the discussion thing I don't want to, I told you, I agree with what you said about apple I just think that there's a lot of people on this site that are frustrated and just want to bitch at everyone putting them down so they feel better. like with all those facebook posts, the swag thing, christians, I don't think they're right, any of them but to want to complain about them all the time... that's what I was getting at.
User avatar #267 to #257 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
well, if that's the stance you want to take then i won't complain. it's actually a pretty good one and i wish i had it, or at least a firmer grasp on neutrality when it comes to stuff like this.

as for what you say about people bitching, i kind of like it actually. i mean, you could argue that those who complain are just a bunch of miserable cynics but personally i don't feel the same way. there's no doubt that lots of us are actually like that but i feel like the majority of complainers are just the average joe. most of us are probably at least somewhat happy with our lives or very happy like me (as i stated before) the internet is just such a perfect place to blow off steam and realistically... everyone has stress. since the internet is such an anonymous setting it's such a useful stress relief tool. i think that... the internet has people relieving their stress more effectively than before it became such a big thing. of course, i could just be spouting ******** here. i'm just thinking out loud
#272 to #267 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
huh... I never thought of it like that... but that makes me wonder do you REALLY love your life? or are you one of those people who keep everything inside with a smile on the outside or some kind of optimistic mask but really are bitter or just feel like they're wrong/bad, not unhappy.
User avatar #279 to #272 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
i feel that for the past 2 years at least, i've been pretty consistently happy and i still am today and that it will continue.i can't only remember 1 day in my life that i've been particularly depressed and that was something like 5 or 6 years ago. maybe it's because my life situation isn't particularly bad right now, nor has it ever really been bad. maybe i'm just naturally an easy going person. maybe the internet is what keeps me so calm most of the time (being that i spend usually a. i still have highs and lows like everyone else but that's just part of the human experience. i think you should consider this the most- what would i have to gain by misleading you? this is the internet we're talking over and it's not like we'll ever know each other in real life, or if we ever do or ever have, it's highly unlikely that we are aware of it. there's nothing at all to gain from lying so i think you will believe me when i say with complete honestly that i'm a happy person, inside and out
User avatar #280 to #279 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
*can only remember
#243 to #242 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/23/2012) [-]
No, you misunderstand me. My point is that there's a lot of things people hate on this site, and they do it because they are... frustrated? immature? idk. I thought that the Apple discussion would be different but as always it's only bitching. (You can have a well documented bitching but it's still that)
User avatar #246 to #243 - ishouldplayzelda (07/23/2012) [-]
ok then. how would you debate about apple? i'm sorry if i came off as rude, but i took your reply as sounding very rude and sounding as immature to me as i'm sure mine did to you. if you're willing to lead a discussion, i'm willing to go along with it

Thats a burn. But how many people are going to go to the apple site and not buy an ipad because of this? Its not going to give samsung a boost in sales.
