    iPhone haters?

    I don't understand why so many people hate on the iPhone on these boards. I have a droid and I love it, but I am not stupid.... I mean biased.

    If you say anything about iPhone coming to Verizon everyone looks at you like you're half-retarded or something! They are so scared of an "inferior" (in their words) product, it doesn't make sense.

    I have serious doubts about anyone in this forum having "Goog" in their portfolio... So why the hate?

    Errr, I dont want to go here but I will.

    I cant speak for anyone but myself, but my main reasonsfor not appreciating the iPhone revolve around Apple's control over the phone, it's apps, and it's OS. That's it. Throw in things like antennagate and casegate, and I have all the reasons I need to never purchase one.

    That's it. Call it hate, call if whatever you want. I dont like Steve Jobs and I dont like Apple, so I'll never pay for their services beyond my iPod Shuffle.

    I don't hate the iPhone. Hardware wise it is a very good piece of kit. What I hate is Apple and in particular Steve Jobs (personal hatred from meeting him on a few occasions). With that said Apple as a company produces a product but gimps that product severely in the name of compliance and control. Whether it be an iP\hone\ad\od or its' Mac line they do what they can to pigeon hole the consumer by denying them choice or control, with the Mac's to a lesser extent. In any case, if you were to take an iPhone4 or iPad with iOS 4.x and jailbreak it it becomes a much more viable and flexible tool. Whereas with Android, rooting isn't so much a necessity as it is on an "i"Device.

    I own Apple products. I have G4 Powerbooks running Ubuntu and a G5 desktop running Ubuntu. I will NEVER buy an x86 Apple Mac because of the premium charged on commodity hardware just so I can have a silver apple logo stamped on it. I can just as easily build or buy an equivalent and install OSX on it for 1/3 the price. Again its' the cult like mentality that bothers me and the arrogance of Steve Jobs and his cult of personality.

    With Android/Linux/BSD I have a choice of hardware, manufacturers and features. I also have far more flexibility without fear of reprisal from Uncle Steve. I can choose what I want, from where and the price I CHOOSE to pay. I can CHOOSE how to use my software, my OS and my hardware. The same cannot be said of Apple or most of it's products (Mac the only partial exception).

    So there you have it. Not a hatred for Apple per se but the management and the mentality behind the company.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    I left my iPhone for two reasons. 1) ATT Service. How I put up with it for two years just to be one of the hip iphoners I will never understand. 2) Forced hardware upgrade. With iOS4, my Iphone 3G ran slower (as in extreme keyboard and app delays) and the battery life was cut in half. I confirmed this by downgrading and getting my performance back. This inho is a force to upgrade by Mr. Gates (oh did I say Gates, I meant Jobs, No Wait they are the same now) to get you to go with new hardware and signup for a pay per Gb plan for those of us on unlimited plan.

    This is being written by someone (me) who can trace my Apple lineage to my Apple //e and have been very pro-Apple.

    Take away apple care and poor signal issues on At&t and I still have my iphone. I have an ipod touch but rarely uses it.I dont hate apple, in fact I recommend apple to people who I believe will benefit from it more than the droid.

    I don't think there is a hatred of Apple from the people that are vocal but more of an intolerance to their ways and those that blindly follow them.

    Case in point antennae gate....

    Steve Jobs: "You're holding it wrong"

    Apple Crowd: "Ohhhhhh I see. My bad."

    Both statement and comment are outlandish but are acceptable within that circle.

    The "haters" are appalled that Steve would even say that and even more appalled that the users accept it.

    These types of things drive the intolerance..

    People seem to forget that Apple darn near went under in the 90's. I loved my little Mac back then but for years I used Microsoft.

    About 2 years ago, due to that "cult" mentality I went back to a Mac and I got to be honest, Microsoft couldn't come close to it AT THAT TIME. Now with Windows 7 out, I don't know if that holds true.

    I do know this: Windows is still the number one source for people to try to launch viruses on. I also know that every computer I ever had in between my Mac in 1996 all crashed on me and I lost data. I've never had that happen on my Mac.

    Perfect? Nope, sometimes I have to reboot and I have had corrupt disk issues from time to time, but because I do check the hard drive from time to time I catch it and I'm able to fix it before any damage happens.

    I paid extra for this computer, but i won't be buying another computer anytime soon. Now if Windows 7 is really good then I'm happy for all the PC users out there. Heaven knows that you've put up with garbage for far too long.

    I don't hate the iPhone either. If I was smart I'd hope it would be coming to Verizon so I could use it with my Mac, but I don't want that to happen. I don't think I'd make a good Mod if all I had was an iPhone.

    Buy the way, I have MSNBC on right now and they just announced that Verizon is going to be selling the iPad On October 28. This is an edit, they also announced iPhone on Verizon in January.

    huh, the VZW website says that the iPad will be available on Oct 28. maybe that's just pre-orders...
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ober-28th.html

    either way, looks like the VZW iPhone isn't far behind...

    I just heard the story and edited my post while you were posting. I also mentioned the iPhone because they did.
