    Nobody cares. The lawsuits are over models that nobody has anymore.

    Apple changed the world. Koreans never change anything. Samsung cannot ever be compared to Apple.

    “Samsung cannot ever be compared to Apple.”

    I agree. Samsung can never develop a customer base of smug little fanbois who live only to prove that a fool and their money are soon parted if you polish a turd and tell them how much better they are than everybody else for owning it.

    Do you dispute the fact that Apple computers changed the world?

    Barry Manilow changed the world of pop music. Would you pay double for one of HIS highly polished turds when you could buy a slightly less polished turd with the same amount of corn or more in it for half price?

    “Do you dispute the fact that Apple computers changed the world?”


    …but so did AIDS.

    My biggest complaint about Apple products is they attract a class of people I don’t particularly like or respect… and the more these people try to rationalize how great Apple is, and push it in my face like a Jehovah’s Witnesses at my front door on an early Saturday morning, the more I don’t like them and the less I respect them.


    Because Apple is like Big Mama Government… and it attracts a class of pushy dependent-minded people who are willing to give up many freedoms for the promise of being taken care of… and they gladly pay above-market price for this. They are a consumer version of liberal tax-and-spend voters.

    And like idealist tax-and-spend voters, they are then used and manipulated (such as forced operating system updates that degrade old iPhone performance to the point where customers must upgrade) yet they lie to themselves and rationalize away this abuse… angrily defending it with nonsense if you point it out.

    Apple takes care of you as long as you go along with their program… but their program is intentionally limited and they make you pay a premium for it.

    …and all this succeeds, to a certain type of customer, based on a marketing campaign appealing to a sense of elitist smug snootiess and a “superior design style” which is immediately concealed with some sort of aftermarket case to keep it from shattering when dropped.

    How can you respect someone who spends unnecessary money to be superficial? How can you respect someone who spends unnecessary money to buy a crippled operating system that may (or may not) be slightly easier to use than Android but is much less powerful.

    I understand there is a class of non-power users who find Apple comforting… but these people use it as a tool to do their basic tasks and they aren’t smugly throwing it in your face and trying to make you an Apple convert with emotional pleas to superficial design esthetics and absolutely no answers when features or abilities are compared.

    So… I find Apple fanbois to be irritating… as they generally live the rest of their lives the same way.
