They are smart alright, at least to a degree! But that doesn't make them an honorable firm, who is loyal to customers. There are many other smart and "honorable" ways to make money. Yes, you may lose some in the Short Run but in LR, chances you will make more money. It is not all about screwing up your customers after all. Apple makes a lot more money than MS, and its customers love Apple  a lot more than those of MS, believe me because Apple genuinely respects their customers, although in return to generous monetary compensation. MS just takes your money, with no style, no taste, no personality, no grand plan, no real organization, no humanly creativity, no artistic sense, nothing!!!

Ding Ding Ding we have a winner folks!

Yep cos your 4 year old Iphone 3 still runs everything your iphone 5 does right? all the apps and that??.

Also siri or whatever its called, that voice program a company was workong on for iphone 4 before apple brought them and made it an exclusive feature of iphone 4S??.

Or how apple pretty much rip their customers off to the eyeballs with their prices??.

Yep Apple really loves their customers money is more like it. Shame Apple fanboys (Not calling anyone here a fanboy) cant see just how much they are being ripped off.

There can be no doubt that Microsoft has a much better track record of supporting legacy operating systems than Apple (that support is probably something that has significantly slowed Microsoft's ability to innovate).  Much of Apple's own software only supports the most recent or two most recent Mac OS X releases (this is only partly justified by the much higher adoption rate of OS X upgrades).  But, boy did you ever pick the wrong battle, because Apple sets the gold standard for the smartphone industry.

You can quibble about older phones with 1/4 the RAM and processing power not getting all the features of the latest phones, but that is infinitely better than the vast majority of phones, which don't receive updates AT ALL (in some cases, not even security updates).  By far the largest plurality of Android phones are stuck running Gingerbread, according to Google's own numbers.  Apple has consistently supported every iPhone for at least 2 years — the iPhone 3GS, which is getting on 4 years old is still supported by last week's 6.1.2 update.  Meanwhile, the poor sods who bought WP7 phones get shafted, despite Microsoft's commitment to do a better job than Google of enforcing updates from carriers.

Microsoft is an evil business that only wants your money.

Sony is a nice fluffy corporation that only wants to make you happy. They donate all the money they charge you to kitten orphanages.

I loled... at the awesomeness of this comment and at the OP...



How is this thread not locked?  It's obvious troll bait.  A thread like this would have been locked almost immediately on NEOGAF and the poster banned so why is it tolerated on here?  There was a time when VGChartz used to be my first stop on the Internet and now it's my last and it seems like a chore to even try to wade through the shit for the few gems of good converation.



Reported with the following complaint:

"This is the OP to a thread of almost manic trolling and tragic thought processes. The guy needs help, but first he needs to be banned and this thread locked. I'm staggered it hasn't already happened. Shall I make a similar Nintendo or Sony thread and see how long I last?"



I'm not really here!

I think what he means is that yes, Apple, MS, Sony and Nintendo are all out for your money BUT, MS is by far the worst of the bunch.

Still changes none of my points. Every company stops at some point supporting their older systems/OS's. How this OP can go at Ms for not giving any new updated to Windows XP a 10+ year old OS and then praise Apple for being such a good company when that Company wont even support any of its OS's older then 4+ years is beyound me..

Also Siri was ported to Iphone 4 by hackers and it worked perfect so apple could of allowed that if they wanted but they decided to lock it out for Iphone 4S.

Anyone that thinks MS are an evil company thats just out to still your money, but then proclaim they love companys such as Apple or Sony etc cos they love the users and the users love them needs to get them selfs in check imo as all big companys are the same.



I don't like M$ but I do enjoy their OS mainly because thats all I know.
