iPhone 6 phones gripes
« on: September 24, 2014, 01:11:10 PM »
I thought it was just because of skinny jeans but apparently leaving the phone in front pocket is enough to bend the phone as well:

Sounds like more Q&A fail from Apple. I also heard from local sources of a poor fellow who waited 6 hours in line to get his iPhone 6, only later that day to drop the phone and crack the screen, because the screen is made out of glass. Day 1 and he already has a broken iPhone.  :dohdohdoh:

I just watched this video and I agree with this guy's opinion in general about Apple products: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVzigC33sGc

Still a lot of I-sheeps /sheeple out there. I think Apples marketing strategy is not to win customers by churning out great products but rather keeping its I-sheeps market base since they are so gullible that even apple would put out a cardboard box and label it as an I-box the sheeples would buy them.

I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung was behind all of these videos, after all they, and all other competitors, have been effortlessly advertising against the iPhone... Lets face it, Apple IS the best.. I don't strive to have everything new apple has to offer, but I do own a variety of their products because it is way more convenient to my every day living and workflow. I currently own a mac pro desktop (which I'm looking to sell fyi :P) a macbook pro retina, Apple TV, iPad retina, a Cinema Display and a 5s. I buy all my movies through iTunes now, which can be accessed by any of my devices through the iCloud unless I download them into it. Any time I travel I always have my iPad for entertainment I can reply to emails from 20k feet in the air without having to whip out my laptop. My Cinema Display features plug and play for my laptop, which is amazing, My soundcard and midi are plugged in directly into it making access to my studio a piece of cake; Walk in plug the cables into my laptop close it and start working. AirDrop is one of the best features most don't know about. When I am on the road I can order pickup, Uber, ticketless check-in at airport, Send stems to master via dropbox and so on, directly from my 5s. Now that Apple Pay will come into effect pfff. Although I can agree that there is a small amount of people who buy to have the new hotness, your interpretation of Apple being a shiny useless box with a big price tag is not true.  :beer:

Well I mean I don't blindly hate on Apple. I think a lot of their devices are great, especially the ones that aren't computers. The iPod and iPod Touch I think are undisputedly best MP3 players around still. I just don't believe the hype with their iPhone nor their desktop and laptops. Samsung nowadays with their Galaxy series is pretty much a decent alternative. So was the HTC when the iPhone 4 and 5 were out.

I buy gadgets not by hype or popularity but rather by functionality (how it fits my use) and of course aesthetic.
I have an Iphone 1 and 2 but shelved it in favor for a Note 2. Eversince been using it now. I also have a Lumia 520.
For PC, used to have an HP but got stolen. Now I use a Thinkpad. I have an Ipad2 but im planning to buy a Lumia 1520. Oh yeah, Ipod but never used it. It was a gift.

I have to say, basing from what I experience, There are lots of apple users that are fad base.
