    Not using your brain is what causes it to get lazy. Computers are great at getting us to do this. Yes they can help but people use them when they don't need to, far too regularly.
    Still don't get it, but that's ok, the rest of us will be just fine.

    A good thing? I thought kids are dumber today than 20 years ago so in another 20 years we will be de-evolving where monkeys will be smarter than us thanks to computers?

    Its NOT a good thing when we rely on computers to do things that we should be doing. Whats going to be happening in 20 years? Are we going to be taking a smart phone to the shops just so we can add up how much things cost together?

    We already have a world of fat people because of the TV remote control. Now we have a generation of morons because we have computers do to things for us. Well that and they smoke too much weed. Both things make kids dumb.

    Want to get smart, stop the weed and turn off that smart phone. Think for yourself and get off that couch. You will be fitter, smarter and just a better person.
    Well I smoke weed, use my iPhone constantly, and use the remote. Everything you said is so untrue about me. I have a bachelor's in CIS, work for a Fortune 500 company, and I'm extremely fit (I use to play football).

    We'll see, I respect what he says way more that any analyst. Woz might actually know something that he can't disclose, can't say that about any of the so called industry analysts.

    Let's not pretend that if Apple does make a market for something new, Google and all your other brand loyalties will be sure to make their own version. So keep talking, but really you and all your android cronies have benefited from Apple indirectly.

    Only if you don't take advantage of any time saved. If you think that the best thing your brain is for is repeated remedial tasks that an app can be written for, then keep on doing it and see how far that takes you.

    Not really, since apple has always been late to the game when it comes to features. If anything, you and the rest of the flock have benefited from Google and most importantly the jailbreak community.

    Unfortunately Android would not be what it is if it was not for iPhone and iPad. All the crap that Google added and Jail-breaking community added is just a small icing, lets not be diluted and not give credit where credit is due. If it wasn't for the iPhone you'd all be using a device that looks very similar to a blackberry.
