Don't get me wrong because it's a good thing to know that you get your money worth.
But Steve Jobs just don't care about his customers.
Dee, 08 May 2010I think iPhone owner are not rich.
What is happening in Mobile world right now?
This is what... more30% of original iPhones are still being used, almost three years after they were released.
Most other phone's of that era are long gone.
lets be honest guys, the only reason people luv the 3gs is the support, and apps, Steve jobs and apple have developers in a strangle hold, they cant sell there software to 3rd party's, FOR NOW, all this is going to change, this year will bring all apps to all the people, you dont think the likes of Microsoft android and all the other o.s will stand by and let 1 out of date company think they can have a monopoly on this kind of business, look whats just happened with adobe, 3 tools now available to make the new apple apps, its the end of an over hyped era for this over priced under speck phone, which on its own without the current ( for now ) apps , would not even get a second look, so open your eyes iphone fans, and see the bigger picture, your being mugged every day, and pay over the odds for things myself and 1000's others can get for free, on a phone that was out of date a decade ago, please feel free to reply with any comments be good or bad, thank you for reading xx
I think iPhone owner are not rich.
What is happening in Mobile world right now?
This is what happening to general mobile owners
after 1st day
iPhone owner - like it, but how to transfer contract ( read manual )
Other phone owner - like it, so many features, cool!
after 1st week
iPhone owner - like it, so cant transfer files via bluetooth? who cares, downloading and enjoying many apps.
Other phone owner - like it, which feature really useful? download some apps
after 1st month
iPhone owner - love it, so cant see flash? who cares, everyday is new discovery about simply useful features
Other phone owner - Sh1t, just realized that better model phone out there in market.
after 1st quarter
iPhone owner - loving it, and has to choose between Girlfriend and iPhone, to spend time with.
Other phone owner - regarded as if only waited for a few month, should have better phone.
after 1st half year
iPhone owner - loving every single year-1998 feature that iPhone offers.
Other phone owner - Hack! getting a new model, mine already outdated 6 months ago.
after 1st year
iPhone owner - fell in love again with new OS update
Other phone owner - may not applicable anymore as changed to newer model
after 2nd year
iPhone owner - Ok, time to get a new iPhone.
Other phone owner - Not applicable
So I realized that iPhone owner is poorer as they don't really change frequently as other brands. Look as GSMArena, Not many people use / talk about a year old phone except for iPhone 3GS, even so many are still using 2 years old iPhone 3G, so my conclusion is we are Poorer ;PS my bro is still using first gen iPhone passed from me.but again one iphone can hold ur hands on it for many years .. simply one reason for it coz its fukin so cool n nice ))
What are the drawbacks and disadvantages of the iPhone 3Gs ???...(in detail pls.)....thanks
Anonymous, 08 May 2010Apple didn't have to pay Xerox a cent in anything decided by any court ever.
You continuous... moreOk let say P%nm developed a smartphone & you called it the ijunkies you sold 100 million in the first month.
Here come a another technology company by the name of Papple this company use your technology to develop a smartphone name sandroid & that product sold 105 million smartphone.
They should have payed your company $18.00 for the technology was used in each smartphone, you are telling me you will sit back & watch all of you hard work & cash go to a next company.
Look at this from a business prospective.
[deleted post]Yu r good, steve is just good in brainwash an his company dont have tech. Apple thing is expensive no use
4TMw, 08 May 2010All patents & licensed technology have to be issue by the fcc & the ftc & the docu... moreSo what's this then?
You really have absolutely no idea what you post about.
P%nm, 08 May 2010The only thing was proven in court is that Apple still had to pay Xerox to use it technology. ... moreApple didn't have to pay Xerox a cent in anything decided by any court ever.
You continuously post unrelated websites which aren't even links because you just make stuff up and have no real links to back up your fairy tales.
This is what happened:-
"The copyright lawsuit filed by Xerox Corp against Apple is dismissed by a Federal judge on Mar 23, 1990. Judge Vaughn R. Walker of the Federal District Court in San Francisco throws out five of six counts in Xerox's lawsuit, citing various reasons. Xerox's lawsuit sought more than $150 million in damages, asserting that the screen display of Apple's Macintosh microcomputer unlawfully uses copyrighted technology developed by Xerox. Even if Xerox prevails on the one count that remains, the company cannot win much because the judge has thrown out all counts seeking damages. Apple's lawyers are happy. Xerox plans an appeal."
Anonymous, 08 May 2010Huh? It's either you are licensed to use a patented technology, or you're not. It's as simple... moreAll patents & licensed technology have to be issue by the fcc & the ftc & the documents are all public records & must be presented to the public upon request under the freedom of information act, which is a US LAW.

Anonymous, 08 May 2010Prove that Apple is using ANY Nokia technology at all.
That's up to the courts.I see you don't know anything about technology.
Gsm, 2,3,4g, LITE, wifi, umts, uma, s40 webkit & many more, not because it's universal you don't have to pat for it's use.
Go back to school & do your homework you just might be able to wiggle you way out of this cult you are in.
Oh no Apple have the rights to use every one technology without payment for it's use lol
You iphone users are all brainwashed by Steve Jobs
Anonymous, 08 May 2010Microsoft is the biggest loser by far in technology cases.
Apple and Nokia are small change... moreApple base technology core was developed by xerox.
And for you a lesson in history: Xerox had been founded in 1906 Apple did not exist at that time.
fridge, 06 May 2010I was once sceptical about the iphone, however after taking the plunge and getting a very good... moreThanks a lot i nearly got the answer i was looking after search of months. actually i was in a dilemma of choosing between Nokia E72 and iPhone3Gs, as many sites i browsed they all gave specs, today on this site i read that the optical navi key is a bit problem in E72 and then i thought i should better go for the iphone3Gs, yes ofcourse its double the price of E72 but its a one time buy and atleast we will use it for 3-4years. thanks fridge u cooled my thinking head.
[deleted post]Microsoft is the biggest loser by far in technology cases.
Apple and Nokia are small change in comparison to the huge settlements Microsoft have had to make to the EU and the US.
Nokia have dropped the ball, they can't compete and so they go whining to the courts like the babies they are.
They should harden up and develop their own tech, not try and blackmail Apple into giving them theirs.
[deleted post]Huh? It's either you are licensed to use a patented technology, or you're not. It's as simple as that. What makes it complicated is in figuring out which patented technologies you're licensed to use, and the scope of your licensed patented pool. None of us here knows exactly what licenses Apple has or its scope. Not even Nokia. For all we know, Nokia could be shooting at Apple with closed eyes and just hoping they could get something out of it. Or, could be that Nokia knows they can't get nothing out of this and they're just suing to give Apple a bad reputation. So I don't think any of us here can be certain whether or not Apple is guilty. We can only speculate.
