Exactly actually I mentioned their market share as an ironic point given their perception as being an underdog - or at least - corporate "rebels" of a type...The fact you overlook the fact that Google is the #1 dominate player in mobile OS, search engine, online advertising, mapping and data mining because you see them as underdog and Google can do no wrong re-enforces the fact that Android users also have blinders on and see their product as more than just a product but a cultural representation.
Not saying anything is wrong with it. I just find the whole situation, pot calling the kettle black.
Ok great, your brand is Apple. Good for you! I feel more brand affinity for Google, thats what consumerism is all about!couldn't disagree more. Apple wants my money, and i'm fine with that because i appreciate their products.
Google wants my DATA - meaning browsing history, search history, location history, etc...etc... in order to leverage that history to inundate me with ads for a million other products i do not necessarily even want.
there is no free lunch. both companies are taking something from us. i find Apple's approach more straight forward.
This is why I generally consider the concept of mining data from my search history to be a failure. All the ads I see are for things I've already taken care of. Selling ad space on the premise of ads targeted towards my browsing history is brilliantly stupid.I am fine with google mining my data, it is after all, tuning my browsing experience to my interests. I have to wade through less shit. My biggest complaint w/ google mining my data is they are behind the schedule a bit: they noticed I was into purchasing this home phone set I picked up earlier this year and for weeks after I made the purchase, i was seeing banner ads here on tribe for the product I already had in my home and was no longer interested in purchasing... So their mining isn't foolproof but I appreciate how it tunes my browsing to my particular history of interests..
wow.. they're running this shit now like a true corporation.. slaped together and infighting creates an abomination of a device.
Sure is. Makes one wonder if this is the beginning of the Apple downslide in popularity.wow.. they're running this shit now like a true corporation.. slaped together and infighting creates an abomination of a device.
maps and this. just wow.
This looks like a hardware issue?
I told the lady who's on 4s not to upgrade to IOS6 under any circumstance. it's a mess.

6. Ask the person in the boat if they know where the nearest Walmart is.
7. Ask the person in the boat if they have a Lumia phone with Nokia Maps.

10. Ask Walmart employee where you can by adapter to connect to printer.
11. Ask if they will accept layaway for $40 adapter.

13. Ask Lumia owner to take a night shot for you and send the photo using mms.
14. Accept praise from family about how nice the photo was and talk them into buying one of your Revolutionary iPhones.
When I first installed iOS6, it asked me if I would like to use a mix of Cellular and WiFi and have it automatically pick the fastest source. Most users blindly hit yes and forget they ever hit it. It was supposed to be a feature to enhance the user experience for those who don't give a shit about data limits.IPhone 5 Wi-Fi glitch leads to big data usage
