    Ok so now hardware doesn’t matter? Funny that.

    And yes, in the mobile arena the cameras are great. Because others have caught up doesn’t mean they aren’t great.

    chill your beans, I didnt say any of that.

    all top end phones generally have nice fast chips, just because 1 (of whatever brand) is marginally better doesn't do anything for me personally.

    and yes apple have had some of the better camera tech over the years and in some situations are still in front.

    honestly they've not released anything groundbreaking (for me) to make me want to go back after several years. I think a lot of their stuff has stagnated a bit, their PC market especially.

    I've always found the galaxy s phones to have better cameras than the same gen iPhone especially in the dark

    Its interesting how the company has seemed very lost since Jobs passed away like the Apple Freight Train has lost its driver... its amazing how much influence and control he had over his company, even Gates leaving Microsoft didnt really have as bigger impact as Jobs dying but I guess that Microsoft had longer to get ready and to terms with Gates leaving.

    That's possibly because of the type of people that Jobs hired or that were attracted to the company. The type that work well under a 'leader', a bit cultish, the great inspirer and all that. Maybe I'm talking rubbish though.

    Yeah jobs didn't just run Apple. He was the lead psychological manipulator. I still remember back in the day when he used to make the audience applaud his product's failures. The incident where he tries to smash the camera is the highlight for me. I also remember when he tried to establish iPhones as a sex attainment device. :D

    Pretty sad considering someone feels the need to use sex and manipulation to sell their products. :( And even sadder that people lap it up :(.

    My favourite is the 'You're holding it wrong' email.
    Especially when all the photos of the phone being held on apples web site showed it being held incorrectly. :D

    I hated the man much more. He was a total **** from his early days. I'm glad i never gave that company (and still to this day) a single penny directly

    Their phones and computers also have the clunkiest interfaces since the 80's and in comparison Windows and Android are much nicer to use.
