    Well, I read it. I posted it. It´s always good to read diverse views and opinions on a subject. But for what it's worth, here are my 2 cents:

    Statistics are statistics. You can make statistics answer all your queries provided the queries are what you want them to be. And the results too. I 'll just say that most Android users choose to have the OS as a good alternative to the closed and sometimes arrogant Apple OS.

    The bottom line is that Apple does make the better hardware, and for those of us that favor that type of credential, that's the way to go.

    The choice of OS's is rather based on each one choosing a path: One, you get into an OS where you´re taken for a ride in app tech. The other offers you the possibility of being the driver and choosing your own path.

    Gentry? Not applicable.

    Well everybody knows that 82% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    "showing an exaggerated opinion of one's own importance"

    I refuse to comment on this.

    This (from my perspective) can get heated.

    I can't. Its a crap article. Author is a complete idiot. I especially find the tone insulting and arrogant.

    Tell ya what, if owning either an iPhone or One means I'd be in the company of douchebags like this I'll stick with my plastic low rent device.

    So when I whip out my celly at the store people will be like,

    "he all poor and sH*t, rocking that android"

    " oh look!... He all all rooted with a custom rom!"

    "he must be one of them fools that has to figure out stuff since he digs through garbage cans for food and all"

    Sorry, just stupid elitist bs like this that I find annoying. I'd rather listen to Apple lovers get romantic with their glass covered toys.

    Del, shame on you for finding this. <---note genuine smile.

    No, your plastic welfare phone makes you look poor, not your post.
