Re: Android vs Apple
Ok I've railroaded you guys enough so I'll throw you a few bones. My wife loves her iphone (when she's not stealing my Note) and I do quite enjoy Final Cut (I just can't justify buying a mac for one program)

Liquidfire, 

Lovely! :) That only means Macs are safe.  To celebrate I send you this little token, but I doubt your PC can understand it. :D  That was nice for a year old update.

Re: Android vs Apple
My apologies, I was incorrect. Mac's did not enjoy 20 percent of the market. The number was closer to 13. Down from 14 percent the year before. http://money.cnn.com/2013/10/10/technology/mac-pc-sales/

Re: Android vs Apple
Liquidfire, 

"Why put so much work into something that that will only affect less than 20 percent of the market."

That kind of thinking is from ages ago. :D You need to update your Mac information. Anyway, it's a useful way of thinking so no one wastes their time in trying to infect Macs if there are so many PCs available which are an easier target. :) Let's keep it this way.

Re: Android vs Apple
The reason why mac's don't see much action in the way of viruses is do to lack of numbers. Why put so much work into something that that will only affect less than 20 percent of the market. Mac's may be constructed from the finest fairly dust money can buy, but much like fairy dust they are useless if they cannot fulfill the tasks I require of them. If I had a dime for every time and iPhone user has asked to borrow my Samsung Note 3 so that they could perform a task that they could not complete on iPhone, I'd have a lot of dimes. You can build the prettiest house in town out of the best materials available but it's of little enjoyment if your not allowed to rearrange the furniture.

Re: Apple Is All About waging Mad-Dog War to warn its opponents.
JameKatt, 

" . . . with all of its lies and blatant copying history - [Samsung] has avoided blatantly copying Apple with its recent products."

Don't you think that's, in fact, the way it has to be? There is no virtue in that.

"Quantitatively, Samsung applied 18 times more patents than Apple did."

Who cares about quantity when quality is what really matters?

Re: Android vs Apple
Liquidfire, 

Apple no longer innovates or no one innovates anymore because everything has already been invented?

Other than copying Apple, what has Samsung innovated?

What else do you want in a phone that you use for a year, never learn to use all its feautures, and replace it soon after a new one is on the market? 

At the fast pace that smartphones are launched you can only get improvement in what already exists. Most consumers demand without knowing well what exactly they are demanding.

Re: Android vs Apple
The number of national (Korea) patent applications of Samsung was 94,293, and the number of national (US) patent applications of Apple was 5,205 between the year 2002 and 2011. Quantitatively, Samsung applied 18 times more patents than Apple did.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
