The new HP Os is much better than iOS IMO. iPhone 4 is a great innovation but still came to market very late with many features that Phones in early to mid 2000s had as standard.For example 5mp camera and secondary cam for video call. And it's still lacking flash. Also it's file transfer is very monopolistic and I can't pair just any blutooth devices to save my life with iPhone.
And I still want to know in which way do you think the Mac Book pro is better than PC. I am a CS Major and I know my computers. Mac Book is good choice for someone that is working in graphics arts like my GF. But, in other prospects Mac Book is very very overpriced. I got my gf to switch to HP HDX18 which has 1.5Gb Graphics card. And has a 18 inches screen with 1080p display. All for half the price of Mac Book Pro. She hasn't looked back at macs even once.
And also in terms of gaming, Macs suck. I made a Pc in 2003 and I still use it for gaming purposes. While my gf's mac Book that is 3 years old is considered outdated. Updates cost a fortune for students like us.
Do your homework before coming up with bias stats.After some knowledge of technology come back to fourms and post what ever you want.
Given that Apple produces very nice looking hardware and good looking software, they are nothing but overpriced iCandy. Their performances can use much larger tweaks. Just look at the Antenna Gate incident with iPhone 4 when it came out and Mr.Job was trying to make other phone makers look bad to justify himself. The iPad 2 would have been better if they had some kind of air vent. Because otherwise it heats up way too fast.
The reason Apple has so many fans is because of the prices being soo expensive. My parent's restaurant got decent amount of customers when the prices were very low. We got swarmed when we increased price. Most people thing expensive things are always good.The prices of Apple products are so high the buyers have no other choice other than to like it :D

Iphone's dont meant to satisfied phone"nerds" if you jailbreak it it's different story, then you have that "nerd" world on your iphone and endless choices tweak your phone.
And people guess which one has better markets, normal people or phone"nerds"
Ipad sells for same reason.
The reason why the sales keep going up is because geeks like me get attracted to all these other phones, use them , get disappointed (Galaxy S) and then realize that the iphone is the best phone out there, and go back to the iPhone.
its apple...what ever people speak blah blah boo boo abt apple...their devices r still high class...its not restrictions that stopping iphones from selling cuz most iphone users don't care abt restrictions...cuz as as they get it they jailbreak it!!...and almost all iphone users jailbreak their devices...and a jailbroken iphone can destroy android or symbain ...ANYDAY....i am saying this cuz i also have a rooted HTC desire...have nooo freaking idea why people jump for android?! no quality apps or games most downgraded ios ones....though i enjoy custom ROMS in my DESIRE...but DATS IT..

Actually where i live you get iPhone 4 at same price than Nokia E7. That i would call overpriced phone. It has so old hardware and still same price, what a joke.
I never thought my iPhone was overprized and i think many many others agree with me, when you use iPhone you dont think it cost alot you just smiling and think holy shit this works so good :) I'm sure many will agree with me that also :)
and dont forget how much you can get by selling iPhone even after year when you bought it. Here many sold their iPhone 3gs and got almost same price after used it almost year, then they bought iPhone4 with very small of amount money :)
overprized?, hmm ok! :) i called that investment

Some people might attempt to buy an IPAD1 at lower price as it nears the ends of it's production cycle. I think those people are sane. I considered an iPAD1 and ended up with a 12" screened netbook instead.

The decline was caused by the supply constraints of the iPad 2. If you order online you'll find out that it will ship in 2 weeks and not right away. That's how much demand the iPad2 have. Another reason is that people held off buying the iPad1 in the months before the refresh in anticipation of the arrival of the iPad2 and that affected the total sales of the iPads on this quarter. Who in their right mind would by an iPad1 knowing that the iPad2 is coming?
I am wondering what the iPAD decline suggests;
A) Tablet's are an Apple created fad that's going into decline
B) iPADS are loosing sales to other lower cost tablets
C) iPADS are loosing/not competing with smartphones as they lack Voice and SMS.
D) iPADS are too big to be a viable mobile device.
E) IPADS are fundamentally inferior to netbooks
I think that the current iPAD needs to evolve into a large screened smart phone which is a viable option as ones only device. xman
You gotta be kidding me. Obviously that's because of Apple's extremely overpriced products. No other company can sell products THAT overpriced and get away with it. Thanks to their great (yet unethical) marketing and army of sheep followers AND hipsters recently.
look at iphone 4 it still beats the hell out of dual core android phones------hahahaha...joke of the millenium...
