"Will they be suing Samsung?"
Don't you mean "Will they suing the HEG-rebrander?"
Another day, another anti-Apple rant...
Jeez, we all know that El Reg is against Apple and everything it stands for but is it really necessary to have yet another piece of troll-inducing-flame-bait? It's almost a daily occurrence. It doesn't promote or provoke rational discussion, it just kicks off yet another round of rabid foaming and handbag waving.
Maybe the author could look up "journalism" in a decent dictionary...
Isn't it past your bedtime laddie? This is a forum for adults where technology and related issues are discussed in balanced, reasoned and rational debate. Oh, wait...
Honestly, every time El reg posts an article that relates to either Android or Apple, these discussions turn into my old school playground, where "ZX Spectrum vs C64" was the battleground. It was boring then too.
As an AAPL stockholder I'll take profit over market share any day thanks.
I bought one from the Apple Store in Bristol a couple of weeks ago - I rang to see if they had any in about 10:30am and they'd just had a bunch turn up. I hotfoooted it down there to find an already-lengthy queue predominantly made of up swarthy-looking non-anglo-saxon types all paying £1200 in either £20 or £50 notes for two unlocked 32GB models.
My apologies of course for the steroetypical Mail-esque racial profiling but they didn't exactly look like your typical Apple user....
I think you just described pretty much the whole foundation of consumerism.
I can live without it - 'it' in this case being Apple kit - if I choose, just as I *can* live without almost everything I own if i really had to. I just choose not to, as I have for nigh on twenty years. If someone else decides to deride me or think less of me because of that, well really, do you think I could give a crap? Of course not.
I do care about the value of my stock, so seeing Apple posting great results pleases me. I'm sure one day they will fall from their perch - no one rules the roost forever (just to mix my metaphors). It's just their turn for success and inevitably there are plenty of folks who are desperate to see them fail.
Attenuate this, bitch.
Come haters, come one and all - bring forth the bile, the insults, the loathing and resentment, the patronising and the oh-so-holier-than-thou sanctimoniousness...
