Steve Jobs: Droid must die Oct. 21st, 2011 @ 10:03 AM Reply

Oh my.

In Steve Jobs biography that is going to be released they are showing things Steve said to people that we didn't know about until today. He apparently had a seething hatred for Android that he kept quiet or so we thought. Probably mad because he's seen this movie before with PC lmao.

"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, (irony) and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong... I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."

umad bro?

Damn brah!

Well it's not all that surprising considering the way Apple, as a company, conducts itself, but Jobs always seemed like a poised and dignified personality, I guess that was just for show.

All smartphones are essentially useless. The wars about them are even more useless. People who bought Android probably did because it was cheaper than an iPhone, being Apple has overpriced products.


Well.

All high-end smartphone are like $200. There really isn't much price variation.

Wouldn't be surprised to see something actually crush all competition against Apple. They're becoming a powerhouse company in the market of cell phones...and everything else.

That's not irony you shit, it means exactly what he intended it to mean

It is ironic that he said that because he died.

The only thing they are a powerhouse in is tablets.

They are extremely out-sized by Windows in the home computer market. Android has twice the market share in the smartphone market, and the MP3 player market is losing steam fast.

You have iTunes. Would you rather have an iPhone or a Droid to download music straight from iTunes? I don't have a Droid so I don't know it's exact capabilities, but I really have no interest in one either. The iPhone is absolutely incredible.

I owned an iPhone for two years and now have an Android device (I prefer it) and honestly not many people use iTunes to download music (brb FBI) just saying. There is a program called DoubleTwist which plenty of Fandroids use which is used to sync music. If you use iTunes you have the option to pull songs,video, and photo playlist right from iTunes.

Richard Stallman: "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone"

So am I, Apple and Steve Jobs were behind so many patent trolls, stolen ideas, software and patents and yet sue the living shit of everyone who makes something remotely similar to their stuff.

Despise of what many believe Apple is a horrible company in the Information technology field, overcharge its products, charge for services most companies provide for free, ignores the foxconn sweatshops, stole ideas and products from many other companies and re-branded as their own, the one that pisses me off the most is their massive enforcement of Digital Rights Management that does nothing but chain the user to their services.

So yeah I'm really glad that douche is gone for good.

That's your opinion, not fact. Apple only enforced DRM because it had to as a concession to the music industry, or else they would never have let him put popular songs on iTunes. Now, as I understand it, songs are available for purchase on iTunes without DRM ("At the 2009 Macworld Conference & Expo, it was announced that the iTunes Music Store would be DRM-free, with all songs digital rights management (DRM)-free by April 2009.") The reason they charge more for their products is because people are willing to pay more for something that they perceive to be better quality. I use Macbooks because I find them more reliable, longer-lasting, and typically less problematic than a comparable PC, plus they come with OSX, which I regard as a much better-designed OS, and have used since version 1 came out >10 years ago. It's a matter of opinion, and in my experience, I find myself more productive with OSX.

You complain about Foxconn, but neglect to mention the fact that every single consumer electronics product you use is manufactured under VIRTUALLY THE SAME CONDITIONS. Sure, it sucks, but when one company moves production to Asia, no other company can afford to keep production domestic because profit margins are exponentially lower, and they will struggle to keep prices low enough to interest consumers. Futher, Foxconn itself actually makes products for 15 different companies, not just Apple:

- Acer Inc.
- Amazon.com
- Apple Inc.
- ASRock
- Intel
- Cisco
- Hewlett-Packard
- Dell
- Nintendo
- Nokia
- Microsoft
- MSI
- Motorola
- Sony Ericsson
- Vizio

Yeah, I legitimately felt bad for that guy before I read this. But android is nothing like Apple's iOS system, aside from the fact that it is designed to run on mobile devices. Steve Jobs is a butthole.

Jobs always seemed like a dick to me. Watched that interview with Jobs and Gates and while Gates seems like a nice man, Jobs simply didn't.

I just found the most fitting picture to this story:

Ahab (Steve Jobs) on the left, Moby Dick (Android) on the right.

And it's a screenshot of an android app.

But Androids have flash! And did you see how some of the new features work on the iPhone with IOS5? The text messages pop up the same way as in Android and now there's wifi updates and syncs.

I agree with him actually, apple produced literally everything about the iPods from the iPod classic to the iPod Touch, and Android just basically steals the whole damn idea and they turn into a big company that competes with apple, it's really fucked up.

Am i the only fucking person left around here that pays for music!? god damn,

you guys would learn to enjoy music much more if you had a limited budget and only bought albums you know you will love instead of clusterfucking your device with every thing from slayer to weezer,

Also I was hugely underwhelmed with my droid, went back to iphone 3gs and never looked back, downloading music straight to my phone is the best!

also iphone has the best app selection and i am an app whore.

The iPhone wasnt the first, nor is it the best. Plus Apple conducts business in such a horrible way, its hard not to hate them. I would rather have no phone than an iPhone.
