These are all funny.

I like my apple products though. My macbook doesn't crash often and the issues he speaks of are not my own. I also have an iphone that is pretty much attached to my hip at all times. I do wish it had copy and paste but the keyboard is easy enough that if I absolutely have to send something that I wish I could have copy and pasted then I'll type it out again or wait until I get to a computer to send the original.
I greatly appreciate the ability to have pandora streaming from my phone when in the car (most phones will do this now.)
I also like being able to use google maps, the units conversion app, TV guide, cooking recipe collection, drink recipe app, and the tide application. It's just the most convenient capable interface phone that I've found. If there was something better at similar cost (I paid 200 for a used 16gb edge version) then I would give it a chance.
The fact that it also syncs flawlessly with my laptop just ices the cake.

That video is probably at least 6 years old, but still funny.

I am a PC user and have been forever, but man the iPhone is awesome. Its definitly the best cell phone i have ever had. I wish some of the Nokias were more easily available in the US. For the price I can not find a better phone, and lord knows i tried.

stuck with itunes garbage
my garmin does navigation for free
not paying $120 per month for a ******* telephone

You don't have to use itunes... and the phone isn't bad because you can't afford the service bill.

so you can plug the phone in and it shows up as a removable? Yes, the $120 minimum bill makes it bad. I have better things to spend my endless supply of cash on.

No but you don't need itunes, there are other programs available.

But it does show as storage ( i think)

I would break an iphone in under a month. My boulder is the best phone I've had.

Blackberry for me.

Internet, email, camera, texting, google maps, copy + paste, music.

I do like the availability of applications for the iPhone, but can't stand the keyboard (or lack of one rather). Wish the blackberry did youtube and dynolicious and shazam.

i'll stick with my Tilt, thank you very much. it has more functions than the iphone, though it weighs slightly more than the rock.
