iSheep? Some People Still Don’t Understand

The Inside Story of How the iPhone Crippled BlackBerry

The article is interesting, but what’s astounding is this Comment underneath it:

This was how bad the original iPhone was. No Cut and Paste for its first two years and no Exchange email support for that same two year period. But no matter as iSheep will buy whatever they are told and with enough of a marketing budget you can get the rest of the masses to think that they needed this device.

Fast forward a few years. Now we have every US cellular carrier locked into multi-billion dollar a year sales quotes with Apple to sell iOS products whether the consumers want them or not. Verizon owes Apple $21.5 billion, ATT over $14 billion, and T-Mobile, Sprint over $7 billion a year each. And then Apple has sales quota deals like this with cellular firms the world over.

Bravo Apple for making so that people’s only option is an iPhone.

What? What?

The last line is by itself a Richter Scale WTF:

Bravo Apple for making so that people’s only option is an iPhone.

So I’ve been hallucinating all of those Android phones by Alcatel, ZTE, Sony, Blu, Asus, Xiaomi, Samsung, and Oppo that have caught my interest and I’ve posted about here?

No. I think that guy is hallucinating that there’s only iPhone available.

    Yes, that guy was either dropped on his head in childhood, or he is so fixated on Apple that he hasn’t noticed all the many options out there.

    Truly stupid.
