    SP2 was simply the culmination of many, many updates. They couldn't have charged for that even if they wanted to. Snow Leopard is a stand-alone iteration of OSX.

    That's what you say when you don't have an actual response, but don't want to admit you're wrong.

    Getting back on point...

    Apple and Google have different markets.

    Google is aimed more towards people who are familiar with computers and avid social media users.

    Apple targets those who have a more "magical" approach to their device. They don't really care how it works as long as they can play their music and make phone calls...like magic. (however, there's a man behind the curtain...and he has access to your wallet. )

    Now that's not even remotely true. Both Google and Apple market their products to as wider demographic as possible. Both target everyday users of technology. In fact, the majority of people I know who own Macs or iPhones etc, know a lot about the technology they are using.

    You're really just attempting to discredit and insult Apple users. In this entire thread, YOU are the only one who is being a fanboy, and YOU are the one doing what you constantly accuse users of Apple products of doing.

    Well now... You need to do your research. (which is kind of my job) I have my facts strait, you're just going on popular opinion here. The fact is... this "broad" demographic you speak of is the general public who struggle with more advanced UIs and don't care much what's under the hood. Google targets the higher class of computer/tech users (developers, advanced computer users, designers, and teens with too much free time) As well as the more advanced social media users. (and stalkers)

    If you really want to talk demographics and such, that's a different debate.

    haha, advanced UIs. The best UI is the one that's easiest to use, regardless of how complex or simple it is.

    That's why you prefer the iPhone. Nice and simple... no need for problem solving skills.

    I've used Android on my Vogue (rooted and flashed a custom 2.2 rom), and it's exactly the same. It's no more or less complex. What version of Android are you currently running? Have you even used it yet? Because you don't seem to know much about it.

    look.. the droid doesn't even compare to apples iOS4 software, droids have a laggy interface and have windows stupid layout.

    Also apple has a better layout Idea, it's quick and easy to use right off the bat without having to customize to much but customize enough. Also we have more apps.

    droid blows
    iphone wins

    only actual phone sides the iphone thats even good is the EVO which isn't to bad, just really bulky


    and it's a better over all phone, I can use any phone easy. Doesn't take long to get used to one. I just love the layout of an iphone better.

    If this thread started on mobile phones, why is Clash talking about Windows XP and shit?
