Apple stuff - People paying an exorbitant price for a computer that is now more like Windows than different just so they can look hip while they sit in Starbucks typing out their next screenplay or PhD thesis.  Phones that are not user serviceable and proprietary so you have to take them back to the store. Sheeple who literally camp out to get the latest version of those phones, and all from a company that, at times is as profitable as Exon/Mobil and won't even discount their products in the BX/PX stores where military folks shop. How counterculture is that?


I literally wouldn't use an Apple product if it was given to me and I hope Steve Jobs is sucking Satan's bifurcated cock.

Wow...you don't happen to work for Samsung or Google do you?

Never ever going to own an iDevice. I hate that "walled garden" philosophy Apple shoves down your throat when you buy their stuff. Everything they do has to be incompatible with everyone else, twice the price, and with no control given to the user. Want to develop? You better own a Mac, sign a shit ton of license agreements, only develop on what they want you to develop on, then force you to pay just to put it on your phone. The only benefit I see about having a Mac is that it's built on Unix so you pretty much don't have development issues with most things. But I've been able to make just about anything work on Windows and if I can't I use a Linux virtual machine, because that actually gives me control over stuff.

Oh, and as a user, it doesn't let me do anything to my machine. I'm not allowed to. Apple knows best and all, so why should I ever need to have full control over it? No thanks. I'll stick with Android. And even though it isn't perfect, Windows lets me play games, and lets me do more things to my own machine than Apple ever would.

Nope. I just happen to like having control over my devices and not being told what I can and can't do with something I paid for. Apple provides none of those things.

Android or PC for me. The 1st apple product I have ever had to use is an iPad air. My company decided that all field supervision will use them. However all the office personnel use PC and all our phones are Android. Make for an interesting inteface coexistence situations :LMAO: I know apple products will do the same thing as this others. It just seems all the mechanics work oppositely.

Everyone should just go get a OnePlus 3. Pretty darn good phone, and the price is unbelievable.

I see the price as being about $100-200 less than an iPhone, but with a worse screen, slower processor, worst camera, and, of course, without the ability to take 9 years of paid content with me.  No thanks.

Larger screen, equal resolution, better camera. Probably equally impressive processors... I don't know the SnapDragon 820 vs the A10 Fusion. Double the RAM means the processor has more to work with on the OnePlus 3 though.

And that's if you're getting a top-of-the-line iPhone.

Also, the price is $570 cheaper for the OnePlus 3.

Compare to a regular iPhone 7...

Larger screen, better resolution, better camera, significantly better battery, triple the RAM.

And it's $450 cheaper there.

http://www.phonearen...10017,9816,9815

And the battery on the the thing is ridiculously good. 30 minutes on it's Dash Charge and I've got enough power for 3 days. I find my battery dying simply because I forget that I have to charge the thing at all anymore.
