Me?? Have you took the time to look my previous replies on this topic or you're just randomly replying? What's next? Quote and describe the BETAMAX vs VHS case?


Every time a big company like Apple releases something, this or that tech site will line up to say why it's ****, and all the angry nerds will march in line. They're probably right too.

Meanwhile, Apple laughs all the way to the bank, because this or that theoretical short coming makes no difference whatsoever to whether people buy their newest gadget.

I hope that doesn't happen, but for the first time in years I can't say with any certainty what brand my next phone will be....


I tell you - Nokia. ;-)

Honestly: it's really not sure Nokia will make a comeback, but I guess chances are not too bad they may become the winning third.

The current trend of Apple shipping hideously under developed product is hard to ignore.

Siri came on the 4S in beta form.  It still stinks now.  That being said, Samsung's S Voice Siri knockoff sucks even worse.  Siri is usable, I find S Voice so useless I actually resent having it on my S3 and it annoys me that it kicks in when I double tap the home button.

Their switch to their own maps is another major blunder, and I cannot help but think Jobs is rolling in his grave a bit.  A lot of bad things can be said about Jobs, but one thing he was, he was absolutely pedantic about the finer details.  He saw how screwed up things got when they rushed features and tried to avoid that in the future, like the MobileMe debacle.

Apple for the most part used to ship a fairly solid product that worked out of the box without too many gripes, and it worries me that this rush to get features in is becoming a constant trend with them.

Rune, sorry for the angry reply yesterday. I was a little upset with my 9to7 responsibilities....

Today I also think those angry nerds sleeping in the front of Apple stores are just ridiculous, but it's tough to judge those teenagers/young nerds. We would probably do the same back on the gold Amiga age. The difference is that Commodore was just not competent enough in marketing (the 4 or 7 P's).
BTW, I strongly think that the BEST marketing mix always wins (period).
So, you're right, not always the better product wins....

Can you be any more greedy? Why pay 30 pounds for a cable when you could get the same thing thing for 3.5 pounds?

Thank you Kesa, for reminding me why I hate this company.

Overall, MorphOS is cheaper (dang, Apple again).
Amiga? Never was cheap, still isn't.
