Started a discussion in the HDMI cable thread - so here is the thread for it :)
It really is Apple vs the world.
I feel that Apple has a large market share, and every person wants an Apple product, usually for no good reason.
If one is asked why does one want an apple, the general public wouldn't know what to reply with.
So why is it, Apple is so popular nowadays, when there are many other manufacturers out there?
I personally don't really like Apple and their products.
I find them very over-priced, over-hyped, too much fan-boyism relating Apple products, and especially hardware wise lacking - I understand a dual core isn't needed at times, nor will my mum really use a dual core, or quad core - but what bout the screen, micro SD, battery, camera?
In essence I find how audiphiles hate beats by dre products, the same as my hatred for Apple products.
Indeed each has there preferences - but if you were a person seeking a smartphone, would you really limit yourself to ONLY Apple products?
I myself never have limited myself.
I came from having:
Ipod classic 5g < ipod touch 3rd gen < SGS i9000
I know each has their different roles, but the iphone is exactly like the ipod touch but with call/data functionalities.
I remember after selling my 3rd gen - which got upgraded toa 4th gen because of a problem at apple with dealing with my repair, that I myself looked at the iphone 4.
If it wasn't for the micro SD, price, and removable battery, I would have stayed on iOS - I'm so glad, till this day, that I didn't.
Each time I pick up an iPhone, I feel its all together quite disappointing and quite boring - if i really wanted an apple product in my hands, then I would buy the cheaper iPod touch.
