Yeeaaaaah...
Apple is overrated, over-expensive and gimmicky shit.

"Innovation" my ass.

No offense to Mr. Jobs, RIP, but he really didn't do much. Some of his Apple co-founders have done more and (I know this was ove...ed) there have been many men who did so much more in the world of technology that no one really cares about, unfortunately. Jobs is just a good presenter.

Bill Gates is boss.

I'm not all that crazy about following trends but I do own a iPod and an iPad, the latter of which I didn't buy but was given at school. I'm satisfied with them. Never thought I needed an iPhone, though. Any regular mobile phone will do.

Steve Jobs was 10 times the visionary that Bill Gates ever could be. And I'm a HUGE android/windows user and supporter. But for someone to sit here and say that Apple products that were the brain child of Steve Jobs werent innovative and groundbreaking is fucking ignorant as all shit.

I honestly think that the Anti-Apple people are more fucking annoying than the "look i have an Apple product" people.

You can say what you want to say. I am not a Apple hater (I am not a "hater" of anything). I'm just saying what I think, and what I think is that the modern Apple products are, once again, not innovative, overrated and over-expensive.

But I will admit a mistake from my part: I don't really know how much Jobs did a long time ago, I just read that other people (within Apple and in general) did more than him.
My point was that all of this BS starting with the IPhone isn't impressive at all; for me at least. So: Modern Apple products are just overhyped BS.
And I don't really like Macs, but to all their own.

I agree their products are overexpensive...most technology is.

But what, to you, makes their product over-rated? Most people who make such accusations usually have a basis for their claims. Or are you just following the "masses"?

You really might want to look at Steve Jobs' career and then come back and tell us what you think of his work and how he influenced and help drive competition in his industry. People just like to shit on apple because it's "the cool thing to do" and dont actually look at the product, it's innovations, or anything that it does.

Is this to say that all apple products are amazing? Absolutely not, but you're sitting here coming out with "herp derp, theyre overrated!" without much more than that. Back up your argument, make valid points. WHY do you think this way?

I was wondering how long until Ziggler Mark waded into this thread. I've seen you knocking about in the tech section quite a lot. Quite a helpful fellow from what I see.

And bah gawd, did you come in swinging.

I'm stepping out the way with my Snake III jokes.

Ding ding.

The iPhone single handily changed mobile phones forever. Whatever phone you have in your pocket, it most likely wouldn't have half of its features had the iPhone not been created.

That doesn't impress you?

I was fine with my good ol' Sony Ericsson W810i. Was the IPhone REALLY the first "touch-screen" and "smartphone" gadget? No.
Was it a good one? Yes, certainly.

BTW, are you a rejoiner or something? As soon as you hit 51 posts you've only been posting here, in rants.

---
I say that it is overrated because "everyone has one", or, at least, a huge amount of people do. Everyone clamors to get one, and everyone talks on and on about their products.
Hype. Hype. Hype.
Also: A MacBook twice the cost of a regular Netbook which has immensely better hardware, yet the MacBook sells more and people who don't know anything about technology buy it.

So, there you go, that is why I called them overrated.
Also: "Oh, you have the brand new Samsung Galaxy S? That thing is total shit, I've got my IPhone SG4VZ (or whatever the fuck they are naming them). It's muuuuch better. It has, like, Instagram and stuff."

People like to shit on Apple? Where? When? Since when, rather? I've never seen it done, par some random posts on 9gag.

So people buzzing about something makes it overrated? To me, when something is overrated it's because it's not as good as everyone makes it out to be. If people are talking about how good it is, and by your own admission you say it's good, then what exactly is overrated about it? I'm still waiting to see what makes the phone overrated? Is it not as good at something as you expect it to be? Or is it because you dont like how many people talk about the product?

Ok, look, Technology is overpriced throughout the industry. Buy a new smartphone without a contract and expect to pay 600 dollars for it, regardless of whether it's an android, iPhone, or windows mobile platform. If technology was so expensive to make, you wouldnt be able to get that same phone, on contract, for 20% of the price. When it comes to the pricing of Apple Products, yes, they overvalue their product, effectively pricing out a large number of end users.

Anyone will tell you that any mac machine is far more intuitive, and user-friendly than any windows-based computer. Am I JUSTIFYING their pricing? Absolutely not, but if there are people willing to pay exorbitant amounts of cash for your product, wouldn't you overprice as much as you could? Sure they could offer their product cheaper, to appeal to the entire world, but when you've established your product as a CULTURE, you tend to want to keep it somewhat exclusive.

I dont agree with the pricing strategy, but it's not something that makes a product "overrated"...

yeah, um...no one has ever said "MAH IPHONE HAS INSTAGRAM, ITS BETTER THAN YOUR ANDROID"...ever. Apple is an innovative company. Whether you choose to accept that is entirely up to you. But it really seems like you're just riding the bandwagon to Apple Hater City. It doesn't look good on you.
