Apple's Popularity

I think this solidify my argument that the iPod Touch is more important then the iPhone,

It's sales are consistently higher, the only thing that's left is for the iPod Touch to upgrade it's processors and ambient light sensor and give it 1 GB of ram,

But look at the gaming devices popular this year.

Apple is still currently trying to rid the world of the "Game Console"

Can't wait until they do.

No, it doesn't.

An iPhone has a wireless service contract, which can be expensive and therefore unfavorable to those with less money. An iPod Touch is cheaper.

Most people who are interested in consoles already have them. Only the Kinect and 3DS are new enough to be popular, hence they are in the 20% tier.

And I doubt Apple will get rid of the game console. None of the Apple devices do what game consoles do.

What about PlayStation Move? It's new too, and computers are above 20% and other tablets and the old DSi/DSL,

Apple is working on a NEW device to rid the world of the home console.

This is the new invention their making, not the iPad or whatever.

At least Apple is making their presence larger, I wonder how long they will last without Steve.

Google "subsidized cost" and "term contract", and you'll see why you're still wrong, and the only thing solidified is the stick up your ass. Also, the iPod Touch is only ahead of the iPhone (by 3%, LoL) in interest in the 6-12 demographic, which isn't even remotely Apple's target demographic. These are not sales figures. Do take note that the interest levels for the 13+ demographic is significantly higher (almost double) for the iPhone than the iPod Touch.

Sales figures are also skewed by the fact that iPhones are in a totally different market. You know... the overly saturated smartphone market dominated by Samsung.

Another apple thread. Figures you'd rather fuck an Apple device than a girl.

Get one, they're really fun, you can enjoy Crunchyroll right on the iPhone!

Try the iPhone or Windows 7 Phone,

Stay away from all things Android.

The PlayStation Move, I believe, has been poorly marketed, so it's popularity is low.

Computers become outdated so they are always in demand. Tablets are new enough but the most popular is the iPad. DS's are just fucking awesome.

I was unaware that Apple had something in the works, but it'll take a while for it to take down established consoles. The iPod, and iPad riding on the Apple brand, are so popular because they were pretty much the first thing there.

Not sure why I replied again, but I'm bored.

Apple over prices their things. I've tried apple products, and let's be real, if your rich and stupid you buy an apple, if you're an art student, you buy an apple. If you're cheap, you buy a PC with windows, if you're computer literate you buy PC parts, put it together to make a screaming fast machine that is quiet, and buy windows, and lastly, if you are smart as fuck in python and other linux languages and/or have time and patience to learn them, you buy pc parts, put it together get linux + windows, dual boot baby, and you laugh at the mac users, cuz if u really wanted to you could triple boot with mac software... but there is a reason why we don't do that :).

The hell are talking about?

Smart people buy Windows and use LINUX?

There's a reason the Macs are the best selling brand.

iMac is the best selling Desktop.

Mackbook are the best selling notebooks.

iPods are the best selling MP3s.

iPhones are the best selling smartphones.

iPad is the best selling tablet.

And not to mention.

Apple is the biggest technology company in the world.

Worth a whopping 380$ Billion,

I wonder how much google is worth? What about Microsoft?

http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-09-19/tech/30174833_1_iphone-apple-google

There's a reason why you don't see many Linux machines, and there's another reason,

Why Android needs 30 Manufactuers to compete with No. 1.

That's the company Steve Jobs himself built.

The main point of his statement was that apple products are simply over price =_=
