How true. It's the difference between perceived quality and actual quality.
People buy French cars because they think they're good, when in actual fact they're total junk.
Re: Yeah, but what if Hitler appears live, opening the Olympics?
He already did...in 1936.
"England v England. You don't care who wins"
At least, being England and not Scotland, we'd win something.
I think Apple's glory days may be over unless...
they can come up with something new and different. A "must have" new product. As with the original iPhone or the iPad.
I'm no Apple fanboi and I only got my 3GS a few years ago purely because the Ordinance Survey map app I wanted was only available on iOS at the time. I must say that it has been a really good piece of kit (apart from the battery life).
I only decided to replace it because my daughter's phone was on its last legs and her MP3 player had died.
When I looked at the iPhone 5, I just wasn't that impressed. I mean it looks nice and I'm sure it performs well, but would have cost me a fair bit extra on my contract for doing more or less exactly what my old phone did, just a bit quicker.
In the end I got a 4GS. Hardly any difference in spec from the 5, and less money a month on my contract.
Apple need to be careful and not rest on their laurels. I'm thinking of another fruit based company who had a "must have" mobile product a little while back.
But then I do work of a fridge manufacturer.

"They should've linked to goatse instead of the actual rulings"
That, or Rickrolled em'
The French seem to have taken over the mantle of producing the worlds most unreliable cars from the Italians (who actually make quite good cars these days).
Re: "Feminine Pink "?
And "Luxury Brown" as opposed to "Bottom of the Barrel Brown" or "Shit-heap Brown"?
Re: His real crime
All these idiots have succeeded in doing is make themselves look like even bigger idiots by kicking up such a bloody fuss about it.
Re: There's nothing wrong with cultural sensitivity
"Cuddly toys are offensive in the UK"
Yeah, the f**cking Generation Game has got a lot to answer for!
Also, these idiots don't even know their own religion. The Bible never mentions an apple. It's just the fruit of the tree of knowledge.
Those wacky God-botherers , what will they get up to next.
Re: I despair, I really do...
Judging by the phone snaps that I've seen from some people, a big splodge of purple would actually improve them no end.

That's no moon! oh, hang on...
If you go to my business address on street view it shows a house down the road a way. Google maps shows it in someone else's garden.
Re: What's in it for GOOG?
"plenty of people are finding Windows Phone to be a better experience"
Actually I have to agree with you. I don't own a Windows phone myself, and I was a bit sceptical about them, but our company recently bought ten Lumia 800s for the engineers. All the new company phones come to me first to have their emails set up. I must admit I was quite impressed.
Re: Can we send Lewis to The Isle of Lewis and leave him there?
Could send him to Rockall maybe.
As the saying goes: "There's f**k all on Rockall"
Camera, hard drive, radio & TV, for your info. The hard drive and the camera both gave up the ghost just after the warranty ran out. The TV just had really dreadful sound and would reset itself randomly.
Coincidently, I was speaking to someone the other day that was complaining that their digital camera had just died, a few weeks after the guarantee was up. Was it a Samsung" I asked. Yes, he replied. How did you know that?
Re: Each to their own I guess
Especially when you find out the hypocritical prick actually owned an iphone.
Re: Samsung not Sammy
Yes, you should be using "the maker of knockoff iphones".
Re: Nonsense fake numbers...
"When your old enough to use a Real Smartphone then you should be aloud to comment on news forums."
Made my day...
Re: Please stop.
I'll second that, it's getting bloody irritating.
How about "the maker of knock-off iphones" instead.
Re: Apply this logic to cars
There you go. See what happened there? All those thumbs down for stating actual facts.
Please refrain from this as It's not what the rabid hysterical foaming at the mouth brigade want to read.
Re: SAMSUNG!! apple....
WTF is "floored approach" when it's at home.
And yes, I agree with the last reply. You do seem like a complete idiot.
"Chances are they are just trading in"
Or perhaps they're buying different phones now they've discovered just how cheap and crappy Samsung phones are.
Re: One thing I know...
I can remember a time long ago, when a celebrity was someone like a great actor or popular author.
Now they are just talentless cretins that are famous for being famous, or have shagged somebody famous.
"No matter how much information you give people, if their minds are made up, their minds are made up,"
That's because you're just trying to confuse their intellectually challenged little minds with the facts.
Re: What a brilliant idea
Very true, but that would imply they actually gave a shit.
"Will they suing the HEG-rebrander?" or it could be "Will they suing the maker of knock-off iphones"
Re: This is why
Pass the mind bleach!
Re: You've never needed a password to install malware on a Mac
"some use it because you can actually get work done"
Like having to use Final Cut Pro as part of your job, or even just using Photoshop on big files without continually having to restart it.
Re: Why not just...
"Why not print out the photographs and put them in an album?"
Good idea, but for longevity, it'd be a good idea to use a printer that uses pigment inks and not dye based inks.
Re: Well Duh!
Along with punctuation?
Re: Where do I sign up?
Nah, not really. I tried it once. Though it was pants.
I see I got a thumbs down, so somebody actually though I was being serious?
Where do I sign up?
I mean, how hard can it be? I've played Eve Online, so I'm all trained up and stuff.
What puts me off Intel as their fucking jingle played at the end of every ad for a product with an Intel chip in it. Makes me feel like lobbing a large heavy object at the TV.
It is only surpassed in awfulness by the vomit inducing "I'm loving it" McDonald's jingle.
Re: The employee was from Iran...
Yes I wondered about that too. So going by their own policy, I'm assuming they wouldn't allow their own employee to buy an Apple product?
"Rather than improve the optics of the camera, the researchers focused on the electronics"
Put a poor quality lens on any camera and you'll get crap definition.
Which, looking at those examples, is precisely what they got.
