in the Article: T-Mobile Says Wi-Fi Calling Coming to iPhone forum

C'mon in the aggregate the imessage problem makes it seem that people who switch from Iphone become shunned by all their friends. This effect is just WAY too close to apple's marketing suggestions to be unintentional. Also, I agree, It's been like this with every apple product. Imac: Reasonable Person: "this is a slow PC for double price" Apple User: "derp" Iphone: Me: "this is a cell phone with an mp3 player glued to it for double the price of each." Apple User: "derp"

Your conditioning is apparent in your comment; it amounts to nothing but a rhetorical trick, and a FOOLISH ONE, AT THAT. I think the phrasing you're looking for, rather than 'simplify', is "make convenient to the detriment of those skilled and for the benefit of those unskilled." It is not what "WE" have done, but rather those who seek to exploit the weaknesses of others for their personal gain. But what's wrong about making things a bit easier for the little ...

There is a big difference between feature phones and smart phones: They are not compatable with the systems that are used to mine metadata and so are a smart way to boycott big data. They are stylish as hell; they are a phone, not a compressed and ****ty laptop. Texting is actually MUCH faster with a T9 on a number pad. Anybody who says different never went through the golden age of texting. Swyping is ghey. Really really ghey. Snake II is ...

Plastic = less weight and more insulation against shock. Therfore, I would say that plastic is superior for metal in phone design.

If samsung is expecting a general rejection of android for business purposes? The risk of google conducting industrial espionage? And then we just heard about the Apple breach.. apparently there's a gaping security hole in how all of apple's software works..

Yeah the company was run HORRIBLY for a long time there. I think you can only blame the board of directors (and whoever's money backed the majority of shares in question) for that. After sabotaging the company at exactly the right time for Windows phone to make its debut (oh ho?), those big money backers disappeared and blackberry was free to see if they could get back on their feet. A lot of people (especially in foreign markets) are wise ...

Mmhmm. Google is an information company. That's why they have so many apps; they pay big bucks to developers for even the ****tiest of apps (because they pluck EVERYTHING and send it to google). I'd never use one of those devices, or any of its little bitch apps, knowing that I'd automatically and undeclinably be part of an aggregate study by [insert group/company].

The S5 could be a rocky road for samsung. I hear many customers each day saying how they are sick of iphones, and they just went through the "fumbling fives". Consumers are just starting to get Ess-Foures, do they really want to aspire to the Ess-Five? Iphone is going to have to name its device something other than "Iphone six" because it doesn't sound as good as the "phone phour" or the "phone phive" (alliteration, homies!). People are "sick" ...

Yeah, just another tale of a weaker country getting its top buisnesses 'boarded' and scuttled for booty. Just a natural part of pirate capitalism. It happens a lot here in Canada, Americans will buy up the shares, take over the board and then rip the company to pieces for the benefit of other businesses in more 'Imperialist' countries. It's globalism, it's capitalism, it's international trade, it's wealth redistribution into the hands of the 0.001%

Yup. Verizon and AT&T are the companies which actively participated in constructing the "big brother machine" during the last decade. True story. BBC ran a documentary about it, basically they installed a central computer with viewing access to the full network.. and beyond!

The only thing Apple has in mind is marketing, it's all they ever have had in store. Think about it. Original Mac: Marketing success Ipod: Marketing success Iphone: Marketing success Steve Jobs: Marketing success Nothing they ever did was really different. They have always just taken an emerging technology being developed by multiple entities and made it "sexier".

Yes! Fraud is so rampant today, the Fed prints unlimited money as it suits them, and the only thing that they have to back their monetary policy is a neverending steam of DEBT, issuing forth from the public in a great font of impulse purchases. It is the wise counsel of Bernanke which reminds us, "if that many of our people owe that much, we've got to be worth something!" Hook up the mobile phone credit! If the people ...

Well this is a 'new tech' device. It would make sense for LG to throw one together for the consumer that wants to be ahead of the curve (hah), but it'll probably take years more for successful implementation, bit by bit. TLDR; Company can make money off releasing gimmick. Company will release gimmick (..with stats enough to say it's not just a gimmick and prevent blowback). Eventually, this will probably mean that phones in general are 5-10% more resistant to breakage due ...

I have a friend who was kind of out of the loop for a while, and would like to get them a smartphone eventually. Issue is, she's not an octogenarian (so no use for the health alert features). Are there any other devices with an uber-simplified user interface (that isn't licenced by jumpstart)?

Pleased that the international banking economy has competiton now in the form of cryptocurrency. It's a very interesting development, since with this internet-based monetary system that is coming into its own under bitcoin's success-umbrella, there is no room for industry collusion and shady dealings.

See, eventually you have to realise that most of the world still uses these 'legacy' devices and still sell new in many locations around the world. I realise it's funny from a north-amero-centric worldview, but they generate just as much business as an Iphone 5s does.

Yup. Oh lil' buddy Magnagarde, you're upset that someone's made a sweeping generalization on a web forum. One day you'll be mature enough to understand the folly of your distress (that's what forumz doo). Plus I'd bet that you've either had private education or travel experience that disqualifies you from the preconceived category in question; don't try to stick up for them, just stick out for yourself.
