[citation][nom]jiangyi[/nom]Hmm... Interesting how the author wrote an article on why you should buy an iPhone 4S, and now he's writing the exact opposite... On another note, contracts for most new smartphones in Canada are 3 years, and I just got my Samsung Galaxy S at the beginning of the year, so no Nexus Prime for me. =([/citation]
They do this with every new release. Normally it is 10 reasons to do it, and 10 reasons not to do it. But as Wolfie becomes ever more obsessed and lopsided in his views there are now more reasons to buy the latest mobile/apple product, and less reasons not to.
[citation][nom]officeguy[/nom]If you have nothing good to say about iPhones then don't say anything at all (that goes for anything). People like what they like and no matter what you say they are going to get it. That's us being human. If you want it and you have the money then get it. I think Apple products are awesome. I don't have one yet but I will soon. Free 3gs with a 2 year contract. Convince me not to, I dare you[/citation]
I don't need to convince tech illiterate people of anything, I just mock them :lol:
[citation][nom]aquila[/nom]I find it amusing so many people expect a revolution to happen every year..[/citation]
And then they get dissapointed when a company doesn't meet their crazy expectations. But it's not just an Apple phenomenon - for as long as I can remember people have (for some unexplained reason) have a passion for pushing their choice of products onto others that borders on the insane (see Ford/Chevy)
[citation][nom]chronicbint[/nom]1 reason to buy one, its not Android. If you buy an Android phone you have to endlessly troll Apple topics and turn into a droidfag.[/citation]
LOL; you forgot also that if you have an Android phone:
1- you are wondering when the latest Android sw release will hit your phone
2- hope that your phone is supported 6 months from now
3- hope that when you get that important call, the phone will actually allow you to answer it.

When I get behind the wheel of a ford or a chevy, my only expectation is that the car might start, hopefully.
I'm happy with my 3GS thanks, though i did give the 4 a try, for starts i didn't like the sharp feel of the device, also i wouldn't have made use of the retina screen as i don't really use mobile gear for video, and i use a Creative Zen for my music, so really it would've been a wasted upgrade for me.
Analysts are already all over Apple and, like Rob Enderle, consider the iPhone 4S a "miss." At this point, I am not sure if I agree and would not go so far as to call it a miss, considering that Apple's rivals are still catching up
You lost me? Which of Apple's rivals are trying to catch up? The 4S was Apples attempt to catch up and they are still woefully behind, despite all their attempts to block competition.
[citation][nom]N3rdGrl[/nom]Next time you write an article, stick to the facts - nobody cares about your whiny opinions. "World Phone" means that it will be compatible with both CDMA (Verizon) and UMTS (AT&T) so if you purchase one unlocked ($649 at the Apple online store) you don't have to purchase a whole new handset to switch between networks.[/citation]
This is just rubbish. I don't get the whole propaganda spouting when you're just repeating talking points for the rest of it, and your facts are wrong.
Straight from the Apple online store:
"The unlocked iPhone works only on supported GSM networks, such as AT&T in the U.S. When you travel internationally, you can also use a micro-SIM card from a local GSM carrier. The unlocked iPhone will not work with CDMA carriers such as Verizon Wireless or Sprint."
I've still got the same basic phone I got for free around 4 or 5 years ago. It does calls, text, and picture messaging (even if it only takes crappy 640x480 images) and that's all I need. Mostly just calls and text messaging. I could get email if I wanted, but I don't care. Email can wait until I'm at a computer.

LOL - the fagtards in the the group voted down this particular gem, but NONE of them could challenge the valid points...
