Re: Re: [newtech-1] first videos of iPhone (plagiarizer) - Android. full screen

Soul & Leroy,

Apple needed to partner with "someone" in order to make this happen on  
their terms if at all. If Apple had not paved the way for creating a  
phone with a manufacturer supplied and controlled environment (which  
Verizon did NOT agree to allow) there would be no iPhone and then who  
would that Android have had to copy from? Microsoft? People make it a  
habit to let Apple innovate and create new opportunities and then  
steal them. I can't wait for Apple to sue the pants off of anyone who  
makes an android phone that borrows too much from what they created. I  
didn't see a good clear picture but from what I saw the full screen  
android looked EXACTLY like Apple's iPhone and while iPhones design  
may seem obvious in hindsight that's only because Apple made it so.  
Noone seems to recall that everyone thought a phone without a qwerty  
keyboard couldn't function. BIG RISK from Apple but now that it works  
it seems obvious.

If it wasn't that AT&T allowed Apple the amount of control they needed  
you wouldn't have iPhones at all, but now that it works you're upset  
because AT&T wants to profit from their decision to allow the  
manufacturer complete interface control. I swear you people should  
still be stuck using DOS- no mice, no GUI, no color screens. Obviously  
you don't feel compelled to support the companies that took huge  
investment gambles to bring them to you, all you care about is cheaper  
and faster.

PS: When the software you downloaded for your Android phone locks you  
up and bricks your phone and you can't make or receive calls, don't  
call on Apple, and when you call Google for help, they won't be able  
to help so they'll tell you to contact Nokia who will blame the  
software company you got your phone app from, but when you call the  
company who sold you the software tells you it's not them it's google  
(after 12 days of waiting for a machine generated email because they  
have no phone number), go buy an iPhone on the AT&T network so you can  
make a call. Or maybe try a zune phone (ha).

That's all I have to say about this one -
