    that sounds like a line from 30rock lol




    I made it up about 2 years ago, when shopping for my new Toyota Camry.

    LOL, you just compared the iPhone to a Toyota Camry, one of the most boring, vanilla, statist (albeit competent) cars you can find... Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave!

    A more apt comparison would be BMW vs. Audi. They are both awesome cars, however, all the Douchebags that flock to BMWs kinda ruin them for the rest of us...

    Hardly an "apt comparison", as BMW and Audi are not known for their reliability....

    thadjock saidputting phones aside who here has real unlimited 4g and what carrier?

    verizon is screwing me over after i upgraded last time, no more unlimited plan.


    I have unlimited 4G through AT&T.

    You are no longer grandfathered on the unlimited plan when you "upgrade" to 4G.

    I had my Galaxy SII for several weeks before I realized this ... threatened to drop the for Verizon and they immediately gave me unlimited.

    This is not being communicated by carriers to iPhone customers, so I expect many returns as soon as consumers realize they no longer have unlimited data plans.

    I have read from several sources that this is incorrect. AT&T will allow grandfathered unlimited data plans to remain unlimited on LTE as they did with the iPad, but they will throttle at 5GB.

    Perhaps that's what AT&T does now, but this wasn't something it practiced 9 months ago. Trust me. I went through it.

    edmirer saidSamsung/Android proponents flaming iPhone/Apple users and labelling them "fanbois" are really just the pot calling the kettle black. Your fervour is equally feverish if not more so. Puerile really.

    +1

    I do like Apple products, and have stated before why. But I've not trashed the competing phones, nor made disparaging remarks about those who use them. I just state why I like Apple.

    But since I've been trashed, along with all other Apple users, I will observe that these bashers have an immature team mentality. "My football team is better than your team, nah, nah, nah." Or basketball, or whatever.

    And I note that this thread asked the question which color iPhone 5 respondents preferred. It did NOT invite a wide-ranging debate of the merits of other phones. But that is an indication of the "feverish" attitudes you observe regarding non-Apple users, that they are so obsessed that they intrude on a thread that doesn't concern them.

    Exactly! I've had my 2009 Z4 Roadster since 2008 as a weekend fun car, without a problem even though it's old now.

    But these statistics prove why I think Apple users are kind of full of themselves. They think they are so cool, hip, trendy, and affluent just because they have the latest Apple products.


    That doesn't make sense. Those statistics won't show they're full of themselves. They show they're more educated, affluent, etc. This isn't a statistical analysis of what people THINK. It is an analysis of what people ARE.

    Fact is, the anti-apple people don't like the company or it's products and they're PISSED that someone would dare enjoy apple products. And since the anti-apple fanboys can only see their own arguments as to why they choose another product over an apple product, they feel the others are just sheep, incapable of independent thought. Apparently the irony is lost on them as they say others feel cool, hip, superior, etc. for buying apple when they themselves smugly call others sheep and think they're better than those who buy "crapple" products. Get over yourselves. Apple users don't this theyre better than you--stop projecting. They just enjoy their iPhones/macs/iPads/etc. There's nothing wrong with at. People happen to like a company you don't. Get over it.


    I don't care what other people buy. I like my crapple products. And I'm looking forward to the iPhone 5

    If you're putting it in a case that covers the whole thing just get black. Otherwise get white.

    Yeah but the problem with black is the aluminum scuffs really easily (some are scuffed up before you even open the box).

    somedaytoo saidLame, I'm holding out for the Nokia Lumia 920
    Lumia-920-Charging-Pad-1.jpg


    I'm thinking either red or white. But if there is ever a special edition Cyan color, I'd be all over that.


    ya my nephew has that phone

    elmo-cell-phone-280x280.jpg


    I like the different colors. I get the "take me serious" part when in business meetings and the "professional look". But I've been working long enough to where my peers and management respect me based on my performance, and not by the color of my phone. The color does grab their attention and they ask what kind of phone I have (cyan Lumia 900), then I change the subject (back on topic) by telling them we're ahead of schedule, or on how I solved a that their best developers could not solve (I'm a SW consultant). When it comes down to it, know body really cares what color my phone is but me.


    I picked up my new Red Lumia 920 yesterday, and I love it! It integrates perfectly with my laptop running Windows 8 Pro (it gets its own tile automatically on the Metro desktop), and so far does everything my former iPhone 4S did. (Well, that's not entirely true. I haven't found a suitable fart app for it yet. Ya got me there.)

    I also agree that the color of your phone is pretty much irrelevant to everyone but you. Get the color you like. I have a tendency to bury my phone on my desk, so the bright red color makes it easy to find.

    Oh, and just for the record, I've owned an original iPhone (only one color choice), a white iPhone 3G, a black iPhone 4, and a white iPhone 4S. I also have a white iPad 2. I've used both OS X and Windows 8, and I get along with both of them fine. I just decided to switch ecosystems for a while to change up my life a bit.

    One thing I will say, it is easier to maintain your technology within one ecosystem. When I had my Mac Mini, the iPhone and iPad were much more easily integrated. Now that I have a Windows laptop, the Lumia interacts natively and much more intuitively than the iPhone did.

    Update: I've had my white 5 for over a month, and I like it. Its visibility is a practical plus, as I have a white case for it. And it matches my white iPad.

    I still wonder at someone who has to ask for others to make their own style choices together.

    Then again, it seems to be more of a fan-boi circle jerk, imho. icon_lol.gif
