I hate to play devil's advocate when people badmouth Apple like this but let's face it. The iPhone and iOS MADE everyone else come out with better stuff by the sheer fact that it was intuitive and organized well plus it is a very nice UI to look at.
Without Apple doing this who knows what sort of crap we'd be forced to use by RIM, Nokia, HTC, etc.
Remember the original iPhone came out in 2007 whereas the T-Mobile G1 which was the first U.S. market Android device came out in 2008.
So Apple forced the competition to create better products by creating...a better product.
I still don't think the ITC should ban imports of HTC phones nor should Android be taken down. I don't see Apple suing Microsoft over Windows Phone 7 or suing LG over the Optimus-series Android smartphones.
Competition is good for the market.

Just because you believe that android is inferior does not make it so. The only real advantage of the iphone at this point is the fact that they have a hella ton of games and random stuff on the appstore. Android is almost fully customizable and if you have a current model, has very little lag if any. I'm not taking sides, seeing as I have both ipads and the new ipod touch and around 5 android phones. I'm just informing all of the people with aurguements that I find funny and uninformed. [/QUOTE]
I completely agree with you on how apple steals features and implements it into their devices and claims to have "innovated" or "created" it themselves. I got so mad when i saw them demo the wifi sync feature of iOS5, because not only did they steal the feature from a jb dev, but they stole the name and the icon too. I love using iOS devices just since i am more used to them and i love cydia, but every good feature in iOS has either been stolen from a cydia/jailbreak developer, or another mobile OS. HS wallpaper, multitasking, MMS, App Store, improved notifications... pretty much everything people love about iOS was created by individuals, NOT apple devs

It is what it is. It's not all bad if people still want Apple products. Kinda like Wal-Mart, it's not fair to it's employees, it's taking over the world, but it's just so darn convenient to shop at
07-12-2011, 10:06 PM #25or they simply don't have the legal and patent firepower to enter a litigation battle with Apple.
apple is the ******* of the tech world, and HTC was just commenting on this (it's what everybody has been thinking)

EVERYONE said what $ony did when they sued people was the wrong way to deal with what happened and it looks like crApple are following in their footsteps and instead of playing fairly they sue people.
Thats the fastest way to loose friends. I'm guessing HTC will now team up with Micro$oft and crApple will wonder why they are losing in the phone market. ITS COZ YOU SUCK crAPPLE!
Thats the problem with the iPhone and iPad. It's owned by crApple. If it was made by anyone else it would be the number one phone/tablet on the market but people don't like crApple so its not number one and it will never be.

Translating that quote from HTC it pretty much says that they think Apple is full of sh!t, and are sick of their crap and basically just called out Apple in a market duel.
Of course Apple would rather run to mommy (the courts) instead. Real quick to brag about themselves when they smoke this product and smoke that product and break sales records easier than people break their iPhones.....but when someone presents a legitimate competitive threat or starts gaining ground/pulling away, then all of a sudden it's because they cheated and copied Apple.
You know you've got problems when you've been in so many lawsuits and patent wars that your patent lawyer (who im sure was making some serious cheddar) finally snaps and dips out of there with the quickness.

i suggest HTC calls apple up and strikes a deal before they get banned from selling their products in the US which is all apple really wants is for them to pay royalties

And if you'll never go back to Windows, lemme ask you sumptin' I'll bet your shinny new mac is useless without Bootcamp.
the iphone needs to be jailbroken to address its multitude of shortcomings and make it a more usable device., Mac OS needs Bootcamp to address its multitude of shortcomings and make it more usable.
hmmm, I see a pattern of failure here.

Apple sucks. I can't wait to swap my iPhone for a droid.

Sell your iPhone now and get an Android, the resale value of your iPhone will likely cover the cost of an Android without a contract, wouldn't it?

I think Apple just are control freaks they want to control all of business and then they want to control how there customers use there products after they buy them like they still own it or own u!
07-13-2011, 01:06 PM #35
hell with you apple ! ... playing the CHEAP game always .. compete with your worst nightmare (Android) like a pro company... not just throw baseless low life accusations ...

I think it's a bunch of crap, apple has a stick shoved so far up their arse it's crazy! I think companies should be able to copy whoever they want, it's only gonna benefit the consumers. If htc can make a handset that's similar to the iPhone but yet can operate better and cost is less then more power to them! Maybe apple should stop being so damn up tight and controlling, and stop trying to take every last cent they can get out of everyone.
