Gee THAT has been true of PCs for the longest time, and for one company to tout their product over the “other guys” is at best laughable.
For example the old Mac/PC adds about why Mac is better than PC. Well, Mac started using Intel processors with Windows OS, which if nothing else makes ALL newer Apple products using that equipment as susceptible to all the viruses and hackers in the world JUST LIKE PCS. In reality there are NO discernable differences between the major players in the PC/Mac worlds other than for Price discrepancies between the players. I COULD go on here for days, but it would not change anything.

It’s tough to get too excited about a new phone when there’s not that much difference among the contenders.

Now it’s all about evolutionary, not revolutionary changes. Wake me up when our phones turn into jetpacks or something equally amazing.
