Ferrari is an experience.
Apple is like a luxury Buick. Soft, boring, made for old people.

And besides I have seen a lot of poor people with IPhones so you do not need to be rich to own one.

Is Apple an OEM when all they do is use other companys components and assemble them in China..How can Apple be classed as this seriously don't get this?
Samsung make their own components and screens and since all my Samsungs have been made in South Korea they would be classed as an OEM ..

apple isnt number one in other countries because of the price, if the price was lower people buy buy it. Anyone will prefer an iphone than an android or any other crap. Iphones is like ferrari, everyone wants one but not everyone gets one. Atleast, its not like samsung that every other day there is a new phone out and your other phone gets outdated. There might be cheaper iphones out soon, then we will see the competition.

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2013yeah dude.... who cares about us market anymore it is the only market where apple is so ahead ... moreApple sells maybe 10 million iPhones in US in quarter, so still worlwide apple still sells around 20 million phones, that would still make Apple second biggest smartphone vendor in the world very easily.
So your point again was? :)
Malicious apps targeting Android smartphones have exploded in number this year, a report shows.
More malicious apps were discovered in the first six months of this year than in the three years prior, according to software security firm Trend Micro. The number of apps containing malware hit 718,000 last month, up from 350,000 at the end of last year.
A majority of the malicious apps sign users up to expensive premium services, charging huge amounts to send or receive text messages, for example.
But recently there has been a big surge in ''genuine malware'', said Jonathan Oliver, Trend Micro's software architecture director for Australia and New Zealand.
The malicious software exploits Android vulnerabilities to steal sensitive information.
One example, called FAKEBANK, imitates legitimate banking apps and can steal usernames and passwords.
Cybercriminals generally take genuine apps, insert the malicious software and offer them on the app store for free or at a discount.
They still perform the original function, but secretly sabotage the phones at the same time.
Android phones are more susceptible than iPhones because their app stores are more open, Mr Oliver said. Apple has more say in what gets on its app store, but it means developers have to share their profits.
Users in poorer countries are particularly vulnerable because their app stores are less regulated and they are drawn to cheaper versions of apps.
But Australians remain a ''big target'' for cybercriminals, particularly those targeting online banking, because of high mobile internet uptake, Mr Oliver said.
Most common Android malware (as a percentage of total)
Premium service abusers: 44%
Data stealers: 24%
Malicious downloaders: 7%
Hacking tools: 4%

Gelvin, 09 Aug 2013So according to you, carriers are the ones who force people to buy a phone? ROFL....pretty much they recommend a certain brand to new users..which they have signed a contract with to sell a certain amount of phones...guess who that "vEgetable" brand is?
