    I have the nexus s but i never use my phone so i don't really need some high tech phone.
    I don't see the big deal about having a phone that's better than some computers, Its used to communicate what do you really need all that for.

    I totally agree. Don't even get me started on Mac Books.

    Apple products are for the aesthetically-influenced consumer - their branding is impeccable and it's the reason they are selling for $700/share in the US stock market.

    ​Apples stocks are only at $433. Google is the way to go with $909, their highest yet.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    I was talking in general - the level it has obtained through aesthetic branding, because the product is obviously not always the best in terms of power & technology. They are innovators, you have to admit. The iPod was a break-through.

    ​When you actually look at the facts, Apple have stolen basically every product they've ever produced. The iPod's design was stolen from Kane Kramer who created a similar device back in 1979. The iPods's click-wheel? Nomad II Jukebox released over a year before the iPods. Also, incredibly similar products such as the AH's "Listen Up" and the "MPMan" by Saehan both predate the iPod.

    Apple was smart enough to steal Xerox's GUI-based operating system and patent it as their own first. Everything Apple has created has been stolen, and patented before completion to keep the market under their control.

    Did those products include aesthetics? No. Everyone steals from others - it's a fact of life. The iPod blew up because it was aesthetically-pleasing to the eye and the consumer ate it up.

    Even the aesthetics were stolen from the Braun T3 Pocket Radio
