1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    to that damn thing already! You'd have to pry my Droid from my cold dead hands before you'd ever get me to switch to that thing. I felt like I took a giant step backwards in features, functionality and apps, and that's not even talking about the phone aspect of the Droid. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time apart to truly appreciate what you have. dancedroid

    I'm sure he's talking about the iOS. Its pretty much an oversized iPhone. Just no call or data.
    So I say welcome back from the dumb side. Lol

    I mean as far as apps, video, music, and general usability. The Apple apps are outrageously expensive and i find the android media players to be much better.

    Hmmm, Im with funwheeldrive, your comparing apples (no pun intended) to oranges. That would be like saying you would much rather have your Droid vs your Dell laptop, regardless of how much alike it is from an iphone.

    But.....if you couldnt find decent apps and think the android market is better, you must not have spent much time looking....cause the appstore is superior in that catagory. Of course the appstore has been around alot longer also.

    I find it kinda funny how people almost dig for a reason to post something against anything thats not android :icon_eek: or at least thats how it seems sometimes.

    another I hate apple thread blah. Do people really hate apple or do they read what everyone writes and just follow suit. It's getting old really really fast.

    Well, list it. What does Apple have that the Droid doesn't and vice-versa:

    1. Making a call and watching traffic on Google maps while I drive would be nice but the Droid can't do it. +1 Apple.

    Anyone else??

    i wouldn't group all apple products into that same generalization.


    to each their own i guess.... i don't care too much for the iphone, ipod, ipad but the macbooks, and macbook pro's are leaps and bounds better then most any pc. I have and use linux, OSX, and windows they all have their time and place the same goes for the iphone, ipad, ipod.


    and yes in most cases my mac runs windows better and faster then almost any PC on the market.

    So don't compare networks. Iphone comes to Verizon what features does the Droid have that the iphone doesn't. Of course, we don't know what the iphone4 will have.

    If the iphone comes to Verizon it'll be the downfall of the droid series of phones. Lots of non-techies who like the droid will jump ship immediately. Which is a majority of Droid owners. DEVs will follow the money trail and create apps for iphone first and possibly Droid if it's cost effective.

    Why are we as Androidians even comparing an oversized Apple tablet that doesn't have flash to our machines? :p
