So you presume that because we own Apple products, that we agree with their business practice? Anyway... Thanks for pointing that out...

I've always been pro-android (still am) but I just want something more "unified" this time. Android and WP7 (and 8, probably) feel more like a bunch of good features thrown together rather than a truly cohesive unit.

And most of the Exchange accounts that I have to set up over the phone involve iphones, so it will be nice to have a point of reference.

Like the guys here that leave apple to try androids. I don't see anything wrong trying something different. Technology for some isn't brand specific... unless you want to be labeled a fanboy. However, I would consider Jeff as a Intel fanboy.

Good points. I would definitely agree that androids have so cool features, so not really that useful but still cool. The only problem I have is that they haven't gotten the core of their OS polished enough that I like using it.

Ray, I wasn't saying there was anything wrong with it. I have tried androids plenty of times for extensive periods of time for work and other things. Just never liked the core functions of android and the fact that it was never as fluid. They have been getting better though.

I like my Xoom a lot more than my iPad as far as a tablet goes, but for regular usage and small looking up of stuff and pretty much everything else I pick up my iPhone over the tablet because it is much simpler to use as far as OS and I feel like I type faster on the phone than the tablet

But I am not sure if I am going to preorder the new iPhone or wait a couple weeks and just get it in person

I wasn't implying you were saying anything is wrong with it. IMO, consumers who have an opened mind on trying similar technology, and look beyond brands... is being a smart consumer. I like the iMac, but I prefer using and building PC gaming rigs over an iMac PC... but I don't go to the everything apple thread why I like PC's better. Preference is the key word. Technology is awesome... but we all have our preferences and what works best us.

Agreed. I use my PC that I built, and enjoy building PCs. I still have a MacBook Pro that I enjoy using as well.

I don't have anything against people that use other devices. I just can't stand people that come into threads trying to bash something that other people enjoy.

Yes. I don't think AMD has it in them to compete in the HEDT space anymore, though.

I really wanted it to succeed that day, even if I was set on Intel at the time I was doing my build... but it failed so bad, I couldn't help making fun of it...

There were a ton of deluded, mentally damaged people that were still holding out hope for it even though every sign pointed to it being a complete turd. Ohhh the excuses... good lord.

I'm getting tired... 45 minutes to go. I decided to go with black again. I like the matte black sides compared to the silver sides on the white. 64gb's all the way.

Anyone hear anything about AT&T not letting you use your unlimited data plan again for the iphone 5?
I've had mine FOREVER and i'd be pretty upset if they made me go to the 2/4 gig data plan.
