    I've got no reason to approach other companies with skepticism. Their products are cheaper, quality is excellent, support is excellent, and they make my life easier. I'm gladly forking over my data to use these products.

    Apple shit... works with nothing but Apple shit. Every one of their services costs 2x money and every hardware product costs 10x more. I mean, I'm inherently tied to hating Apple as a PC gamer just by the definition of being a PC gamer. Unless i want to play games 15 years after they release when they are finally ported to OSX.

    And I dunno. The lines outside of Apple stores is quiet different than just enjoying Marvel films from the comfort of my computer screen.

    Did you click on the link?

    It redirected to the Korean site which did not have anything relevant to our discussion that I could tell.

    With trans that Apple shit lasts, although it's the only one I ever use and I don't follow the smartphone world much. I used iPhone 4 from 2010-2015, and then iPhone 6 2015-now, although judging from friends I apparently was a minority in staying with ones this long lol.

    I've been on the apple bandwagon for awhile now, but I think when my iPhone 7 finally goes, that'll be probably what pushes me off the platform. Really the only thing keeping me on is that all my music is in my Itunes, and every single photo I've taken for the last 15 years is on my IMac, and I just am not ready for the hassle of moving that stuff off right now.

    I kinda think that a lot of people are in the same boat.

    But you can see that some people might value privacy and design, or be unconcerned about price?

    (Also, exaggerate much? C'mon man.)

    wut.

    Dude, you go to MCU movies on opening day. Like every time.

    Last fall I went around to Target and Gamestop to see if I could pick-up that PS4 deal. Guess what I saw? A huge fuckin' line. More than 100 people and over an hour's wait.

    So how is that different from people lining up in front of the Apple store?

    Me too.

    I have a lot of iTunes music, and all my photos.

    If it weren’t for that, I’d go to android.

    Oh, it's a link to the Google Store Pixel 3a phone that I just got a couple of days ago. It has a headphone jack.

    It's different because those people are morons. Pre-order on Amazon and it gets delivered day of release.

    You can't compare camping outside of an Apple store up to a week before the phone releases, to buying tickets on Fandango, picking my seat and casually walking into a movie theater 5 minutes before the movie starts. You just can't.

    There’s no difference between either lineup example. Whether it’s people lining up overnight for a PS4 or an iPad.
