Yeah Apple sucks just like the Seattle Sounders.
Windows Phone and the Chicago Fire for life.
 

Hey, hey, you can say what you want about Apple products, but don't you go besmirching the fine name of the Seattle Sounders!
Well were both at the bottom of  our divisions so there's that.
Also with out Apple android would have looked like a poor mans Blackberry 6.
 
But really shouldn't matter what you like when there are four big OSes that should fill every niche
ios

Android

Windows Phone

Blackberry 10

 
So why must we quarrel.

Can BlackBerry be considered "big" anymore? It fell to 1.8% markertshare in 2012.

More outdated and lame jokes. I am no stranger to derailing threads, but I also try to get them back on topic.

Regarding the maps joke, it was ran into the ground very quickly. It was funny at first, but grew annoying after awhile (it's like how "Gangnam Style" was fun for like a month, then became annoying). The Foxconn situation has changed. The iPoo one is lame (and I have never seen a toilet with 2 buttons, so it doesnt even make sense). The Siri one was kind funny, but 2 years old joke and the guy holding the phone looks like an idiot because he just lets his friend do that.

Foxconn also made(?) the Wii and makes the Wii U. I guess Nintendo is bad guys too?

im assuming that the foxconn situation hasn't been fully solved and that what happened then will happen again as time goes on.

Pokepal, you're being extremely childish in this thread. We get it, you don't like Apple products. I don't care for Android myself, but you don't see me trolling and insulting everybody in the Android thread.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

Does that count enterprise users? Also, is that worldwide marketshare or just US? I remember reading that they're still kicking ass in some territories. I know this is the Apple thread, but I'd like to discuss something related here. I tried the Z10 demo unit at Best Buy last week. Not bad, just three years too late (at least). I was already a Blackberry user; I would transitioned to Blackberry 10 by default.

Anyway, my 4S has been wonky lately. Sometimes the screen dims for no reason and I have to hit the power button to shut the screen off then on again. There are other weird things too. I'm not bemoaning these minor inconveniences. I can deal with it as long as my iPhone functions, but if it stops working, that greatly affects its resale value and we can't have that. Signing a new two-year contract nets me a brand new phone for free or close to it so I'm looking forward to the next iPhone sooner rather than later. I'm eligible for an upgrade in June.

It's worldwide marketshare. And total sales. They might be doing slightly better in less developed countries, but overall they are not doing well. Some analysts think they could get back to about 5% in 2016 (largely based on the Z10 and Q10, I would assume), but even that is pretty low. I am glad they are making changes, but I agree with you that it may be too late.

I go to school with a large Arab population, and they get phone service at our shop too. They all came here with BlackBerrys, they've mostly moved on to Galaxy S 3s and iPhones.

Apple made a big grab at enterprise by introducing some key features a while back, and the tablet boom only helped them more in that space. Samsung is making a push, and I think it might work out for them. At one of my clients (tech start up) they were rolling out iPads left and right, at others (more mature employees) they really just want options.

I care about Apple's stock price about as much as I care about Nintendo's, in that it's only relevant to me insofar as it affects the products they make.

the way stock prices work it does not matter that much... marketshare is a much bigger thing which the iphone has been struggling with

i will say this, this patent war has gotten ridiculous, microsoft sued(and settled) with foxconn for MANUFACTURING android phones, Apple is likely continuing it's great crusade of justice against Samsung and the like, all the money going towards litigation could be going to innovation...
