Well, I have my valid reasons.

-Their products (in general) are overpriced compared to the competition. You can get much more performance for much lower prices. They're also typically "behind" compared to the competition. I mean, here comes the 3GS, where everyone was hoping for 4G support, without 4G. Then comes the iPhone 4; still no 4G. OH MY GAH! iPhone 5 announcement tomorrow! I can't wait!!! 4S?! No 4G? (true 4G I mean) What the hell?! The iPhone is just NOW matching the typical 14.4mbps speeds the 2011 average phone has, and we're already seeing jumps to much higher speeds months later from the competition.

-Their products are annoyingly "trendy," to the point where everyone thinks they're amazing solely based on that. I personally feel the aluminum look on their desktops and laptops to be plain bland, and their cooling efficiency is horrible. I should also add that because of this, the "typical" (I'm not trying to seem elitist here, it's the trust) Apple product owner doesn't know squat about hardware/performance, yet they have the courage to make the claim that their Apple laptop/phone is the best money can buy, just because everyone they know has or wants one and says the same. These people that claim such fallacies are speaking out of experience with ~$400 retail HP/Compaq/Dell/Gateway PCs, which is a fail in and of itself.

-Apple as a company has done so many things that only lower my negative views against them even lower, with the ridiculous lawsuits and whatnot, and Steve Jobs's attitude was annoying, to say the least. Their marketing is rather deceptive, claiming things such as being virus-free and "faster."

This post is so ignorant, why aren't you crying 24/7 then? Hundreds of people die every second, so why not mourn for the deaths every second?

I can answer that, because nobody cares, that's how the world is. People die, people are born, the virtually never ending cycle. Unless you know the person you can't honestly say you care that they died. Reason why people care that Jobs died is because he's important, rich and famous. If you did nothing great in your life that made you well known, rich or special, that's how your legacy will be. Can't expect a homeless person to be mourned as much as a wealthy and well known businessman.

Without it we would still be paying 3 grand for single core desktops.
Without Android we'd be paying $400+ to get something that wasn't a flip phone.

Without Windows we'd be paying thousands for the most basic of computers.


Jobs didn't create anything that wouldn't have come about on it's own eventually. I see him as a master manipulator, liar, thief, and advertiser. Not an innovator.

The ipad is not an innovation. It's an extremely stripped down, comparitively useless tablet pc that was marketed well.



And then he gets all butthurt over a superior "stolen" product beating his? What a hypocrite.

Some people in this thread are right. Wanting to eliminate competition for the sake of business is not evil. Willing to spend 40 BILLION (with a B) dollars and driving your own company into the ground to do so is, however, very evil.

I'm fairly certain an android OS was in the works before the iphone was even announced....

Leads me to believe we'd still have android (maybe packaged differently) without apple.

Guys just... /facepalm

Are you guys perfect, don't you ever say things you didn't mean because you were angry?

Jobs didn't gave enough money to charities? Who are you to decide what he should do with what he earned? Stop trying to strip down the rich, try to be just as rich to be able to give all that money to whatever population you want to help instead. Much more useful than QQing here.

Just get off your high horse!

Android didn't copy iOS at all? You guys are incredible. Really. Your hatred for Apple distorts reality. Oh and yeah before anyone answers: I do think iOS copied from its predecessors.
Apple creates markets. Sure they didn't create the first tablet but they created the first mainstream one, and it's definetely thanks to Apple Samsung and others sell tablets today for example. Like I often say, Apple bakes a new cake, takes all the risks and once its successful everyone else tries to get a part without taking any risk.

Edit:
How Android being in work before iOS prevents it from copying iOS once it's released (before Android as we know it, at that)?

Nope. iOS inspired Android because guess who was working at Apple at the time??? Do some fact checking.

So many ignorant replies and misinformation in this thread it's unbelievable. This is a good example of the rampant hatred Android users keep bottled in just waiting to explode in thread like this.


With regards to philanthropy, Jobs did donate to charities via his wife. He worked with Bono. He set up a now defunct charitable organization. He simply spent his every breath on Apple and his family. He didn't have time for charity, so he had others do it for him. He kept it private, so whatever he donated you'll never hear about.

Just because he's not like Bill Gates doesn't mean the man didn't give a damn. You people need to start reading more news and less headlines.
