    I have had my android phone for almost a year now & I've been pretty pleased with it, but when the iphone 5 comes out I'm going to buy that instead of updating to another android phone.

    Android simply doesn't have the major perks that iOS has..
    I'm no apple fan at all, I think they're an evil company that sells for a 400% profit. But for a on device hack-ability iphone takes the cake, having DPKG & a beautiful frontend for apt (cydia) I just can't find myself with this android phone any longer.

    It really upsets me to think this because android has a lot of potental, but not for me without dpkg or a 3rd party package management system.

    Since when is it "evil" for a company to make a profit?

    Its how they do it thats evil. Forcing people to use iTunes is pretty evil... IMO that is.

    Its because of itunes, and itunes alone, that I'll never get an iphone/ipod.

    Same with my girlfriend, and she was just about to buy an iphone when itunes deleted her entire ipod without so much as a confirmation box. She plugged it in to recharge and it deleted the whole thing.

    If itunes alone wasn't bad enough, I hate having to go through the program to put any media on the device.

    I totally agree with you. Im a copy and paste through explorer kind of guy. I dont need some program acting like my master to put anything on my device. iTunes just needs to be optional and i think my stance toward apple would be better. Til then im bitter and not liking apple.

    That sucks..... personally id wait a little longer before i went to the iphone. I dislike apple for different reasons, #1 being the lack of customization possible on their products. Yes, i know they can be jailbroken but its not the same as with droid where you can change basically the entire OS if you want (saw something about seeing ubuntu on a droid which i thought was pretty amazing).

    I personally dont mind itunes other than its sooooooo slow. I have a laptop with 3 gb of ram (win7 ultimate that ive optimized for speed) and its still slow (my mom has 6 gb of ram with win7 home and its slow also). I've never had trouble with it deleting everything on my ipod because i use drag and drop instead of playlists.
