This shows you are a POS. It's just digital data right? Who cares if you steal it. No big deal. Doesn't hurt anyone.
Assholes like you are why the App selection on Android sucks compared to iOS. No one can make any money off it since everyone just side loads apps without paying for them. Great job promoting that attitude.
Why is the first part dumb? It's a general problem, no? If you create a beautiful product but have to protect it with a "so-so beautiful" case to properly use it, there definitely is a problem. It's probably better to create a product in between usefulness and design, but apparently more people are attracted to the beautiful product (which is completely understandable...) that has to be protected. Just an idea
, nothing more, nothing less. If you don't agree that's cool.
The backup wasn't meant to be a critique directed at the iPhone. Rather that many people don't really know what it is. Again, you can disagree. Peace. What do you do without wifi access?
I don't get the last part of your reasoning. What does this have to do with Android and iOS? You can do it at both. Both have 500k+ apps. You may call me an asshole and piece of shit, but that's alright. I just think it's a good idea to first evaluate a thing in "reality" and then decide whether you want it or not. Whether it's some piece of code or a new TV. No fan of blind buys all that much. Especially considering what a shitload of crap is out there in form of apps. BTW, more people that I know who've got iPhones "do it", in comparison to Android users. FWIW, I currently have 2 apps on my smartphone, both of which are free to use -- funny, eh? And really, your way of talking with people doesn't come handy when you're trying to start a conversation (or were you just throwing insults at me?). You don't know what I do, how much I abuse, how many apps I've bought -- so why do you think you can analyse me because of one sentence that mostly was directed at jailbreaking that iPhone to get at least the minimum personalization possible and access to some great apps from cydia, which actually, and that may surprise you, can cost money too, even if it's in "bad guy-territory" for you.Edited by b1os - 9/13/12 at 9:04am
