This is why they diss iphone

Direct quote from Jobs:

"It's human nature to want to find a successful organization and bring them down, Jobs said. "I see it happening with Google, people trying to tear them down. And I don't understand it... what would you prefer? That we were a Korean company, that we were here in America leading the world with these products... maybe it's just that people want to get eyeballs on their sites."

at this point it makes no difference where your stationed...people call it "American Companies" but most of the work they do is outsourced anyways...

As for hiring US workers I'm sure Samsung and LG have as many here in the US as Apple does...

They are all evil..and trying to figure out which is less evil is a silly game..

I didn't imply it for us, its just so many tech sites that even mention the iphone, you get the fanboys coming out doing Iphone vs Android threads, its getting annoying. You can't even read comments anymore without idiots taking snipes at one another.

It really gets old after a while.

I think he just means the general attitude of some Evo users and such who want to feel important by dissing the iPhone. Both of you guys haven't been blindly saying "it sucks" but giving some pretty good criticism, although I think you'd be less harsh if you actually owned one for a week or two.

And gTen, you know I'm all about that Vibrant now anyways

Actually this stuff does matter. Why do you think this country is messed up. We outsourced everything we had. Even though the manufacturing might be outsourced, the company headquarted here still has alot of office people, engineers, accountants etc here. Go see how many Americans LG, Samsung, and HTC employs compared to Apple, M$ and Google who are headquartered here.

Thats cause they are fanboys..if anything most people on this site don't care one way or the other about the iphone and rather don't like Apple's "closed standards"..just like I'm not to happy in the direction Motorola is going with Android..


To me the most agitating thing was the fact that the hardware on the iphone is better then the presumably "pocket computers" aka WM and Android...then I feel embarrassed when someone from the Android/WM calls out to say how their hardware is better then the iphone(showing ignorance).....its sad how junky hardware specs these "Super phones" have...

This is one reason I like the Galaxy S..FINALLY a device that matches and/or surpasses the iPhone's hardware on a pocket pc operating system..

i use my dads 3gs every time im at his office. ive played with them. ive felt em, touched em, tasted em. ive got an ipod touch for both of my kids. im not saying anything shitty about apple or iphone. if you really want to see whos talking crap, look at who started the "hahah iphone4 sold more than evo" thread about an hour ago. in my thread in this iphone forum, i even said they make a good product with a good mp3 player and good video software with a good app store. what part of that is crap talking or saying it sucks?
