What was I using before the introduction of the iPhone - a Blackberry

prior to iTunes - I downloaded music for free, to this day I don't use iTunes. Even the latest movies, I have a computer in my movie theatre that will load any movie I want, even the movies playing in theatres downtown all for free. who pays for downloads, that's so 20th century!

what edited film before the Mac - no idea, but I am sure that 0.00000000000000000001% of the computer market is busy buying Macs

all in one computer - that would be a laptop which has been my principle computer type for 20 years, that is the ultimate all in one computer. Very few people I know own desktops anymore

Microsoft invented the tablet btw. My first tablet was a Samsung which I got free from Telus on a promotion. This year I got another free tablet from Rogers. Personally I hate tablets and would never buy one, the only reason I have them is they are given to me

I think the only thing original Apple ever invented was the mouse (just looked it up and that isn't even true). Huh, so just like Apple creating their better version of the smartphone (previously invented by others), then Samsung comes along and creates an even better version. One day I am sure someone else will create an even better version


We have already addressed that others made tablets but apple made it something people actually want. Samsung makes crappy plastic imitations that old ladies use to play slot machine apps.

Again, if you like Samsung fine but to act like they are this innovative company that bests apple at every turn is laughable. Their entire mobile hardware biz is designed around using a free OS to ride on the iPhone’s coat tails

This is the guy that thinks most homeless people are selfish freeloaders. I guess it's different if you wear a suit.

 

 

Also I am pretty sure I am not interested in contributing or being seen on a to a board where self-proclaimed theives are active.

I am outahere.

I have no time to read from the intellectually restful.

Steal away my friend. Karma is a *****.

“Duurrrr Samsung manufactures some components therefore iPhone is Samsung huurrrrr what do you mean Samsung uses many parts from other manufacturers and a free third party OS? What do you mean the only original thing Samsung adds is useless bloatware?”

Tjv, Telus gives you ‘free’ Samsung tablets because nobody wants to buy them.

Yeah that's it! A company tries to entice new customers by giving them a free product that no on wants.

RBC was giving away free iPads to customers who opened certain new chequing accounts earlier this fall. Guess they must be garbage as well.

Right, and just like RBC giving you a "free" iPad because no one want them either.

Ok, and tell me where I can buy a Bosch xxxx car, etc, etc?  As far as I know none of my BMW parts are made by another car company.  What I am saying is driving a BMW with an engine and drive train by Mercedes

 

Apple needs Samsung to produce their phones.

 

To be clear, all that money will go to Samsung Group, the conglomerate, as opposed to specifically the mobile division of the company. Why the windfall? Samsung made the OLED display, NAND flash, and DRAM chips in the iPhone. It’s currently the only company capable of manufacturing these items at the volume that Apple needs, which means Apple has to buy the parts from Samsung.

I wonder if Samsung needs Apple for any of their phones?  Let me know if you find that out

They've been giving away iPads for a while. But at 32GB as Bob mentioned, they're not exactly Apple's most 'lit' product.

Despite all the Samsung parts in the iPhone, Apple has somehow managed to pull off a better Samsung than Samsung!  

 

Interestingly, Apple floated $1.25Bn back in 2005 so that it could secure enough flash memory for their devices.  You could say that the Samsung memory factory was funded by Apple!

 

You're suggesting that Samsung could make the iPhone because they make many of the iPhone parts - People buy iPhones for the experience, not because it has Samsung NAND chips instead of SK Hynix.  Anyone who has been cursed with TouchWiz knows this.

In terms of mobile devices, Apple has never been the dominant player. Currently, the top two companies are Samsung and Huawei. Apple had 12% of the total smartphone sales in 2018 Q2, and about 20% of smartphones globally run iOS. As soon as you leave North America you realize how small Apple really is.

Total iPhone sales in 2017:

  • 217 million.

Add another 50 million iPads sold in 2017, and you're up to 267 million Apple portable devices sold in 2017.

Are you sure "small" is the appropriate word?

This may be offensive but No one cares what phones people in the third world use. We are talking about who makes the best phones to use, not about volume
