Just saying, most Apple products function fine. They're just heavily overpriced.

whatever apple has "allowed" you to do on the device is easy to do...

Anything else needs a jailbreak to get working.

I have this crazy idea that as a customer, I should be able to do whatever I want to my device without interference, or deliberate hindrance from the OEM... that's my pet hate for Apple.

I promise I won't say anything else about apple... these Brand x VS brand y arguments are pointless since it all boils down to personal preference. And to be honest, my Macbook pro was one of the best laptops I owned at the time...

Dude, most restrictions (such as free apps and ****) are to keep revenue in, even though Apple has a ******** of money.

Others are to keep the system from being complicated because let's face facts, many people who own Apple products are clinically retarded and can't deal with a ton of **** in their face.

I agree with you on the app store, but it doesn't excuse it in my opinion.

yeah simplification is definately a big thing they go for, and it is a positive most of the time, but when they start to make it simpler by introducing proprietory connectors and protocalls then you are are already making a mistake.... More isn't simpler..

I mean sure, the 30 pin/lightning connector literally separates every signal that can come from an apple device so you can get a line out, or AV out, or HDMI out from it. that's kinda cool (if you have the proper "apple compatible accessory". But chucking sneaky things in there like resistors to prevent charging from non-apple chargers is not cool (yes Apple did that).

and there are heaps of other examples of proprietary simplification... but I don't want to go on..

Either way, so long as I know how to use them and can set them up I really don't care. (I'm in tech support, so I'm "that guy" fixing random devices people bring in to connect to our network)

I like my galaxy s3, but if someone really likes their iphone, that's cool too, each to their own, it's all just opinions based on user experience

I'm pretty sure I broke my promise...
