iPhone best selling handset in the world. I thought Nokia held this record! I don't doubt iPhone could beat it but I thought I would have seen it all over the net if apple did sell more than Nokia.

iMac. Simply no other all in one solutions that compare. There's not a very large market for all in ones. I have only ever seen one person with a iMac and he was my mate who worked for apple support

iPod nothing compares. Compares to what? It's just a iPhone without cell side and millions of other devices have been able to play MP3's for years. What makes the iPod a better mp3 than another other MP3 capable player

And then logic pro and aperture software. Samsung doesn't make software, or do they?

When people say apple is crap, it's not. Everything is weighed against their products.

Wrong. Apple products rarely come tops in performance and if they do it's for a matter of days before its classed as dated. Now if you are compareing dumbed down OS then yes they come tops which is great for some but not great for everyone. Once I can't get a android phone to work well,with AirPlay I'm jumping ship. It's the only reason I keep my iPhone.

Even my iPad has been demoted to permanent trailer setup as I'm sick of the constant crashing and apps closing.

I'll agree that the Ipad has the upper hand, apple pioneered the tablet market and has the most developed applications. Honeycomb was a rushed OS that really failed to impress. Give in another year and we will see who prevails.

MacBookPro is a nice piece and all but its overpriced and many of my programs require me to run Windows...so why pay for overpriced hardware?

Iphone is far from the best selling phone, I'm guessing its the Nokia 1100 that everyone seems to have. Only the rich use smartphones there is a much larger market for cheap phones.

Imacs fail to impress, all in one computers offer limited expand-ability and upgrade-ability. Sony, Lenovo, HP and other companies have the same style of computer.

The market for digital music players is mostly for joggers and people who need something small. Smartphones will cut into the majority of their sales.

Get off the kool-aid.

To show how much better they are than Apple . Apple builds to the lowest common denominator and want to sell the most to the regular Joe Blow public. They have been successful at this and others want to follow and compare to this model. It doesn't mean they are the best for everyone, far from it.

What comparisons are you talking about? If your talking android vs IOS then of course they are going to be compared just like windows is with OSX. If nots very often you see hardware comparisons of apple vs others because they get outdated rather quick on specs. Again this will happen because apple don't release enough products to keep them competing with the other brands. Just thing how behind we would be in the electronics field if it was only apple making pc's and phones. They make the products as underspeced as possible so as soon as the new model comes out you feel you have to upgrade. Just like that stupid dock connector they used all these years even though everyone else was using micro USB and similar. Now they are thinking of going that route also. So where does that leave the millions of devices that use that connector?

There was zero excuse to not make the 4s 4G but like always they do this so you get jealous of all ya mates who have 4g and you get the next iPhone even though you got the current one and then when to try to re sell the phone it can only go back on the same network it was purchased!

And that folks is why apple is the richest company.

Do all you guys spec the best possible materials for all your jobs?

No because you would be out of business. Laughing.

Apple knows what ppl want and market accordingly.

When was the last time you framed with J Grade lumber.

My point exactly.

Most ppl don't even know what 4 G is.

I look forward to all the haters bitching when tha quad core iPad 3 is released.

I'm not a hater. I just like the fact that no one can really fault Apple for being #1.

I guess it pains you so much you have to talk like a little kid again.

That was probably one if the saddest statement I have heard. You are beyond childish. Lol

Wow you are a fanboy if I have ever seen one lol . I'm not sure where your getting your figures or facts from but they are wrong. I think hitachi is a bigger company than apple let alone the beast Samsung. just so your aware apple don't you high grade parts in its hardware they use the same stuff everyone else does. Pc's are a little different as you can buy custom pc's that blow away any apple PC made but phones all use the same quality equipment.

#1 at what?

It's not number of handsets sold
It's not richest company
It's not most powerful pc
It's not best hardware
It's not most PC's sold

The only thing it think it's #1 at is selling budget spec equipment for high end prices. They are the BOSE of the phone world.
