  • Na. Apple innovated power plugs that work with absolutely nothing else, glued in and inaccessible batteries and earphones that can't be used with anything else and that no other supplier of them can make. Apple is hands down winner at twisted pointy insertion into their clients. Mind you google learns quick and is just as eager, but historically, Apple is the clear winner. The real weird thing is that the Apple perforated keep coming back for more.

  • Aplle is innovative? Yes, absolutely. They took off the headphone jack for example. Or made phones with glass backs. Or got rid of the micro sd card slot. Wow, these innovations are amazing... for their purse they actually are. Enough dumbos still buy their poo.

    • @Blixi Bubba There is no innovation with the M1. It is just another processor. Something else? Or is that it? I'm talking about innovation here, not just a new product.

  • Come on Linus. We’re not all retards that use iPhones 📱. Google has incredible resources and Android clearly has a lot of value to offer the world. It hits price points Apple and iOS simply don’t. It has features probably even now, iOS doesn’t and both OS stealing useful features off each other. Some of us just prefer iOS. The UI and way Apple does stuff.

  • I personally really do not ejnoy using apple products, but i'm also really happy that they exist in the same way that apple users should be happy that android and windows exist. healthy competition means that we as consumers get better stuff and not just the same thing with something absolutely minor changed. looking at you intel with the core 3xxx-7xxx. no innovation, minimal improvements and so on. I'm still rocking a 2500k and it trades blows with the 6600k overclocked and trades blows witht the 7600k at stock speeds.

  • Great sales pitch! That’s all 😏

    StephanosStephanos20 napja
  • Just wait for the high refresh rate screens on iPhones, world will be shaken, even the news will cover it once again. Anyway competition is always good, options to choose are always very welcome, just something like removing things and calling it innovation and then soon after others following it too purely for profits is not great and a lot of times tons of silly or misleading marketing for casual users that buy things based on brand label or of reviews, social media "best this and that" when it is not actually true. Can not wait what we will see in couple of years ahead and how competition will push for more interesting and actually useful "innovations", rather than this CPU is now 15% more powerful than last years when in the end it is just numbers and not what you actually benefit from scrolling through Instagram and chatting.

  • Great video we need more info about what Google it's gonna do, because the online articles don't say much, so thank you so much. But between both I don't think Apple it's more innovative than Google, at least not by a big distance. Only in terms of OS design, software updates and not much more. And I never felt that OS thing of Goohle, because I always used Huawei and now Xiaomi which have their own modifications of the OS and they were/are great, but for what I saw this Android update will be amazing, this was a decision that Google took a long time, should be sooner, since Android users love costumization, and this update promise to be the queen on that department...

Hooray for custom ROMs. Also most of the 'cool' features are so niche, that most users do not care about, but yet are forced to use a 20gig mobile OS. Those new Android versions are rolling so fast that manufacturers just re-release their previous line models all over again. Still I ain't switching to iOS. :)
