>>>While I agree that it's pathetic to pay actors to generate hype, they're hardly the first to do it. Interesting they'd have to do it for the iPhone.
Them not being the first doesn't make it any less entertaining.
>>>Mr. Mectron, your bashing of the iPhone to me is a symptom of a jerk and a closed mind. Fine if it's not for you- so f*cking what?!?
Interesting that the person accusing someone else of being a jerk is the only one mock-swearing...
>>>Why spew your ignorant bias? Buy the phone that you want- it's your choice.
On what grounds do you call him ignorant. Perhaps he himself purchased and iPhone, and has been dissatisfied with the service, making him a far more presentable commentator than yourself. The point is, you have no idea what he knows about the iPhone, if anything, so to call him ignorant makes you guilty of the same.
>>>But a lot of rather smart folks have in fact chosen the iPhone, and that is their choice.
No one is saying otherwise.
>>>Say what you want about the fanaticism around Apple, but give them their due- they put out a good product that perhaps you just don't like yourself.
Bias? What? If you've never used the product, on what grounds are you able to say it's "good"? The "good"ness of the product is your (admittedly uninformed) opinion
>>>Be objective in your comments, instead of opening your mouth for the world to see the fool.
Thus spake the man who claims a product that he doesn't possess is "good". Objective?? Right. Pot, meet Kettle.
>>>I don't have an iPhone because I work for a competitor. That doesn't mean I can't admire it and use it as inspiration in my company (a certain Finnish one) to improve the user experience.
So basically, you have company sanctioned iPhone-envy. You're using the iPhone as your guiding light to improve your own product. Ahh, now I see why you're so touchy. If the iPhone in fact complete crap, then your product, patterned after it, would also be complete crap. And therein lies the rub - you don't want to hear anyone else talk bad about that which you have idolized.
Well I've got news for you pal - you don't get to tell someone else to be objective while being biased yourself. In fact, you don't get to tell someone else to be objective at all. You're on the internet for crying out loud! If you haven't figured out that everyone has an opinion, and that opinions, by their very nature, are biased, then you really should just stop trying...
