Apple f***ing sucks - Page 24

post #346 of 397
i just have to say that while the iphone is a wonderful device, the customer service i received from "geniuses" attempting to troubleshoot a pretty blatantly obvious problem was atrocious. ill never buy an apple comp for as long as live due to my experience

I wanted an iPhone for a very brief period, then a Droid. Then I realized the LG enV Touch is almost as good as either of them and doesn't require a smartphone plan. Got the 8GB MicroSD full of mp3s and album art, it has a mobile web browser that let's me access facebook, myspace, twitter, etc., email client, flip open keyboard, voice recorder, and halfway decent touch screen.

The sound quality on the mp3 player is amazing, comparable to an iPod.

True, I don't have dedicated apps for Facebook or Twitter, but I don't think that's worth an extra 30-45 dollars a month in required data plan charges.

I have a Nokia 5800 and have a pretty similar experience actually. The media player is good, but could be a bit louder, however it does have a dedicated Facebook app, good email client, some cool games, good business functionality (although that is not the express purpose of the phone given its Xpress Music branding/positioning), decent touch screen etc etc. No hard keyboard though, and the iPhone's browser is far superior. I had an iPhone before, it was a great toy, but an awful awful phone. The Nokia was a third of the price of the iPhone, and with an 8 gig microSD card, has the same storage. It syncs its calendar and address book through iSync with my Mac flawlessly (my Blackberries gave me grief there) and the Nokia software syncs it near perfectly (issues with album art sometimes) with iTunes. I'm happy. Given that I have business needs, I got sick of persevering with my iPhone, and ultimately gave it to my best friend. He wanted to pay me for it, but I couldn't justify taking money from my best friend for a phone that was gonna give him nothing but grief. In the end he gave me a Nano for it.

Gun in mouth shooting through the top of my head, leaning forward in my seat.

I'd prefer to kill myself in one shot. Awkward self-inflicted gunshot angles are fun for the CSI crowd, but hard to pull off under duress.

God, this is just like the typical /g/ thread.

It's 4chan's Technology subforums, where neckbeards have flamewars over what's the superior OS, GUI/Linux distros and troll each other. It's a nice place for learning more about computers, though.

Sure. Most of them use Debian or Fedora, though.
