People like you are just useless. You think useless thoughts and then say useless things. Or maybe you don't even think at all. Anytime someone has to berate another TR reader or anyone for that matter, proves that he/she is the idiot. If you can't say something constructive or something that we can debate about then don't say it. It's just so funny how you claim that the reason why apple is #1 in tablet, smart phone, mp3 sales is all because of some "hype machine". Is that really their secret? To create a "super hype machine"...lol? If it's that easy, then you create something similar so that millions of "dumb" people can buy your product. If apple products were just "hype" then at some point people would stop using and buying them. I'm not even sure why I'm writing so much to you. You're just an apple hater and whiner for whatever sad reason.
For the rest of the readers here, let me go on record saying that I am a microsoft, android, apple, and all other technology fan. All I'm trying to say here is that apple does something right every time!
