    The internet is awash in trolls who lurk in comment sections of blogs ready to jump down each other's throats to "debate" (and debase each other) over Android vs. iPhone. This latest news report coming out of Tulsa, Oklahoma may have just found the two "Idiot Kings" of this behavior.

    Two roommates in the Evergreen Apartments were taken to the hospital after stabbing each other over an argument as to which mobile platform was better than the other. The altercation occurred at 1am on Friday morning and devolved into smashing beer bottles on each other and then stabbing each other repeatedly.

    Both of the boneheads survived and were treated for their wounds. Police have not yet decided whether they will charge either mobile gladiator. Perhaps they were lucky there wasn't a third roommate who was a Windows Phone user... all three might have ended up with posthumous Darwin awards. :)

    Let this be a lesson folks... it's fine to have a favorite technology, but there's room enough in this world to like multiple platforms, and arguments can obviously be taken way too far. Just remember, if we didn't have the competition between Apple, Google, Microsoft & others, then smartphones likely wouldn't have evolved so quickly and given us such amazing capabilities!

    It's finally happening, the phones are becoming smarter than the users.

    Yeah there were beer bottles involved.

    Discussions such as those are never a win/win. I've had many of them over the years with my friends asking why I stick with Android. Once they figure out that the functionality of Android outclasses iOS the discussion is usually over.

    I have an iPhone as well, but truly if you get down to the nitty gritty iOS still lags behind in overall functionality. It's quite possible that I re-entered the iOS ecosystem at the wrong time with iOS 8 being a total disaster for my i6 Plus.

    I see your bottle of cognac and raise you one Glock 10mm. Stabbing people went out in the Middle Ages

    I'll raise you all. Just meet me in an abandoned building. C4 may or may not be involved.
