Uh oh, I think we have a case of iPhone envy. Dude, iPhones are so popular because they're effing AWESOME. A phone is the least of what it is.

It was reported recently that private data of about 4 million people stored in smartphones powered by Google’s Android platform had been stolen and transmitted to an unencrypted server hosted in China.
SK Telecom, the country’s No. 1 wireless carrier, cautioned users against a wallpaper application software which was used to penetrate the Android-based smartphones.
Google has suspended the programme’s distribution pending an investigation, but only after 4.6 million downloads were made.
Experts say Android-operated phones are considered more vulnerable than Apple’s because their source codes are open to device makers and programme developers and their applications are downloadable on Internet sites other than the Android marketplaces.

Seriously, I don't want to sound like a dick, but apple users are so goddamn brainwashed it's unbef***inglievable
It's things like these, that make me think we won't make it too far as a species..
People waiting like mindless zombies in long lines for a new "magical product" that some guy in a black turtleneck told them they should get...
It's pointless to blame Apple for anything.. They know how to control masses, just like all the successful big companies do...
If you really are stupid enough to pay hundreds of dollars for a crippled overpriced gadget, that you only use to update your various internet profiles and provide accurate tracking information for a company that will sell it to the highest bidder & gov. agencies, I say you SHOULD be ripped off in every possible way..
