Seeing how you thought it was a good idea to get a mac, your common sense must not be too spectacular.

It's referring to Apple's policies in regards to their portable devices (laptops excluded), though don't worry, they're already starting to implement the precursor to such restrictions on Macs.

It's the cydia icon. Cydia is the platform for jailbroken apple devices, in which you can access restricted content / apps, and actually regain control of your own iphone.

I really wonder why people want an iPhone. Just look at the facts - Android phones have the same (often times better!) hardware, they are of the same quality, same battery duration, lower price, tons of free apps from google play and you don't need to jailbrake it to pirate software, you can even use a custom/unique OS if you know what you're doing, no need to use the annoying iTunes...

**fabelousnagger rolled a random image posted in comment #89 at Epic Troll ** I guess most people just buy it for brand
I asked just asked why they picked a Iphone over other brand? it is answerd with"because it is better"

but everytime we get to the "what is better" most of them can't answer it or we have it on other smartphones to do it better

only real legit answer so far is that it synch well with other apple product that is nice

same go with mac, I cry on the inside when I see people get a mac and not even open the terminal once and only use it for facebook .......

what people use their money on is not my concern but buying brand for it name kinda tell how much they care what people around them think ...instead of care what they really buy (atleast try to see what you can use it for)

Indeed. iPhone's battery is ****, Apple used to make batteries for some of the first iPods that would die out after long use and not be able to be reused...
Also Android gets a screen for widgets which is not on iPhone

Not that's taking about 3-4 15 minutes calls a day...but i guess i can see how you might get that impression.
here:
3-4 calls a day
light internet use over the duration, on 3G, mostly for google searches
GPS off, Brightness low(no auto), wireless off, 3G off, vibration/touch vibe off, animations off, background data off, and wtih the newest update i had to find the setting that was turning my wifi on every time I passed a wifi router in town. :D

I know I'm probably forgetting something but oh well you get the idea.

but... OS X comes with a fair bit of GNU software pre-installed and runs a lot of linux apps, can download apps from the Internet just fine, and bittorrent works the same on it as on any other platform. Is this ***** tarded, or just on a bandwagon? There are a lot of reasons to bitch at apple, but all his arguments are ******* stupid.

^^^^. MacPorts lets me install thousands of FOSS packages on my Mac, just as pacman, apt-get, yum, zypper, or what have you allows you to install FOSS packages on <Linux distro of choice>.

Remotely disable apps/media: Apple can remotely uninstall an app I installed from the App Store, or remove something I bought from iTunes. Just as MS can remove Win8 apps downloaded from the App Store. So yes, but it's not like "Oh we see you sideloaded GIMP. NOPE. UNINSTALLED."

No sharing music or books: Ok. I buy my music from Amazon/Google when I buy music. Otherwise, there are other means of retrieving it. Same for books.

No installing apps from the web: On the iPhone/iPad, yes? Same thing on MS surface RT. And similar on Android without rooting (potentially? not sure on this point).

-- It's cute how anyone can make a sign saying anything they want, and others will treat it as fact. :)

About the Android part - you can install whatever the hell you want from the web, all you need is a simple file manager app. You only need to root it if you want to use a custom build OS

He's retarded? Mac OS is a Unix standoff...plain and simple. You can take a free Unix shoot (BSD) and clone Mac in a couple of hours and guess what...FREE MAC OS. So you pay huge money for a free OS. You retarded *****?

Check out pear linux to see how close you can clone to Mac.

Its the GNU project logo. GNU+Linux is all the distributions of Linux you see like Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Arch, and so on.

Its the GNU foundation logo. GNU is an open source software foundation, as well as the Free Software Foundation.
Its the head of an animal, I cant remember what animal but its the head.
What it means is, it's closed source, as opposed to the GNU+Linux distributions (distros) such as Arch, Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint.
I hope you get the idea.

GNU is pretty much the leader in advocating Open Source technology. They were founded as a protest to people trying to charge Unix way back in the day.

And I'm pretty sure that you're right in that is their logo.

I don't like linux for several reasons.
1: Barely any professional software. I do most of my work in AutoCAD, and linux alternatives are... lets be generous and say bad.
2: Lack of entertainment. One of... what 100, 200 games comes to linux?
3: Amount of work I had to put in to make even software that does exist work (admittedly that was five years ago) half the software I needed came uncompiled, other 30 percent required major tweaks to work properly and only 20 percent worked well.
4: General unhelpfulness of those that do use it. Linux users are least helpful users anywhere. Whenever I needed help with something (not often but it does happen) I had to basically beg to get even basic information. Only trick that worked was getting into a linux chatroom and saying "Linux sucks, it can't even..." and then 50 people would be trying to make it work to prove it can work.
4: Obnoxiousness of the users. Linux users self satisfied superior attitude makes apple users seem humble.
