>Implying anyone in there will give a ****

It's an apple zone. They won't give the slightest of ***** what you do in there with your android.

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

I'm sorry that no one calls you.
I would hug you but, internet.
User avatar #142 to #101 - thegamerslife (03/18/2013) [-]
Not that's taking about 3-4 15 minutes calls a day...but i guess i can see how you might get that impression.
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.

No one ever texts you.

My little cheap toss-away phone will last a week with daily 1hr calls and the ridiculous amounts of texts I get.

Well I don't have a cheap burner. I like being able to have full internet and GPS on a nice big screen with great sound quality to boot. :P

You pretty much just said that you stillhave to put however much effort into jailbreaking your phone so it actually performs well.

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.

Its the GNU project logo. GNU+Linux is all the distributions of Linux you see like Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Arch, and so on.
#89 to #12 - anon (03/18/2013) [-]
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.

It's the GNU logo, an open source system i think.

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.

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.
#102 to #27 - anon (03/18/2013) [-]
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.

^^^^. 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. :)
User avatar #73 to #43 - ludislavonac (03/18/2013) [-]
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

So that guy took the time to create this poster and decided to camp out in front of an Apple store to convinve others that they are using the wrong operating system, which actually does not affect him at all? How exactly is that different from the Jehova's Witnesses wasting their time to go from door to door to tell people that they should believe in their god?

The funny thing is that Apple users are always accused of a religious kind of attachment to Apple.

I have had both many androids and iPhones (no i'm not bragging, i am just saying i had the best of both worlds). I don't know why, but i just prefer my iPhone. I hold no hatred for ether type of phone.

With the look of the comments, i feel like the 1%.
User avatar #124 to #122 - senoldlx (03/18/2013) [-]
same for me. i tried android and windows phone for SEVERAL years after i had my iphone 3gs. problems over problems, either lack of security and overall choppyness (android) or no features (windows phone). i don't give a flying **** whether i can share music or books, when you buy something at itunes, you agree that the **** has drm. buy at amazon or something if you want it drm free, period. and installing from the web isn't possible on iphone (only with jailbreak), but isn't the appstore "the web" (i dont give a **** when it comes to ********************************************** ). and android and windows phone have a killswitch,too. image people downloaded malware from their stores, customers would go insane, a killswitch is a must-have for any company IMHO.

and because i want to customize my iphone a little it is jailbroken (bought a used iphone 4 because i made too much loss with my ****** phones before i bought it). and it is merely for the notification center toggles and cracked apps (yes, i'm a cheapskate, but dictionaries are too expensive for me as a student)

Last time i checked, the app store for android was risky to even access due to them letting anybody publish their app. I never got to truly get into window phones though. I tried 2 but for some reason, both were extremely laggy and barely functional
User avatar #129 to #127 - senoldlx (03/18/2013) [-]
i have to admit that google kinda tries to make the play store more secure, but because of the open source philosophy they have they restricted them selves. they can't push everything out of the store again without inducing a global ********* anymore. and the more apps you have on your android , the laggier it gets. even the s3 will lag with too much news apps with push messages on. or even some games like Poo have to run in the background, every little ****** app has its own service. when you actually want to USE our android, you are going to have a bad time. and then you may flash another rom on it because you think that it will get better, but with custom roms and kernels you will have more problems in the end than you solved. it's a shame, because the android gui and features are quite nice. the features alone, when you read them. but not more. they are cheaper than the iphone, that's the only reason they are so widely spread. imagine a 200€ iphone before android ics was there, apple could have easlily dominated the global market. steve jobs was too arrogant to degrade the "luxury-status" the apple products have. what a shame

Hmm good point. i currently have an iphone 4s. I plan on upgrading it in the summer to a iPhone 5. Nothing from android has made me think twice about m decisions
#120 - liquidz (03/18/2013) [-]
Got an iphone 4s, all other choices from my carrier sucked at the time, and I don't trust google or android as I know they have too many vulnerabilities. Windows phones at the time were **** .

Had the thing less than an hour and I wanted to take it back. Ass backwards, inefficient, poorly designed, atrocious battery life, and too damn fragile.

Worst purchase ever.

I miss my Palm Pre, best user experience for a phone yet.
