    Right claiming victory for 1 win out of 4 when your opponent been consecutively beating you back to back. And saying it's to early to claim victory, that make no sense to you? And is bad logic right -_-. I shouldn't be surprised by this though.

    I've been hearing it's all downhill for Apple since I came to this forum when it was still TiPB just before the iPhone 4 came out on Verizon...and blowhards who prefer other device platforms have been here too, acting like you...

    Claiming victory or clear record setting victory?

    "Apple earned $18 billion in profits last quarter, about the GDP of Honduras and considerably more than Amazon has earned in its entire lifespan as a company. That's the most money the company has ever made. Indeed, it's the most money any company has ever made in a single quarter, leaving ExxonMobil's $15.9 billion quarter in 2012 in the dust. This is fueled by gross margins of about 40 percent, a ridiculously high number for a company selling hardware in competitive markets."

    So say what you want about Apple or iPhones but 74 million folks got one not this year this quarter. I've read that's 30 thousand iPhones and hour. WTF!

    Now is a good time to offer a reminder: Mobile Nations consists of sections devoted to specific products and services. For instance, Android Central caters primarily to those who prefer Android products and services. Crackberry caters primarily to those who prefer Blackberry devices and services. We make up the iMore forums where Apple products and services are preferred. Having said that, it should be of no surprise to anyone if articles posted depict Apple in a favorable light. It should come as no surprise that the members here may defend their preferred product against anyone who may appear hostile. Therefore, if you want to rile up the natives, go for it, but don't expect to not get any feedback in return. Finally, when the feedback becomes overwhelming, don't cry foul and point out the Apple products that you've owned or currently own as if that'll make things right. Use common sense and remember - "When in Rome...."

    Here's the thing. Is Apple better than Samsung? No! They are two different phones for two different types of people. Anyone that can say Samsung is a horrible device is basing that clearly on personal taste and opinion. Do I think Apple is better? Yes I do! And I will continue to buy Apple products until they no longer suit my needs anymore. If Samsung released a phone tomorrow that I found to be better than Apple in terms of software, build quality, and customer service I would be a complete arse hat to pay a grand on an iPhone when there was something out there better for me. That being said I wouldn't go trolling YouTube, and all these review sites claiming Samsung king because I could take one look around and see clearly by the iPhone in most people's hands that I would be acting delusional. The same way I'd be delusional going over to android central and trying to convince a group who paid their hard earned dollar with completely different lifestyle and needs than me that an iPhone was better. We can debate, argue, call names, and troll as much as we like the end of the day Apple is one kick a** device right now and has been for years. Samsung is also a kick a** device, along with HTC, Nokia, Motorola, LG.... You want to argue what's better? You'd be better off arguing who's lifestyle is better cause that's the only way a certain phone is going to fall into an individual category. No one phone will ever be the best. One will always sell more, but to have a clear winner by personal tastes we would become minions who all were named Joe and worked at the gravel pit...... Oh and we would all like to rock cases and use screen protectors too.

    Yes that's no small feet that a ridiculous amount of money completely ridiculous for any company no one can deny that all I'm saying was let's see a few more quarters and see how thing pans out which I stated clearly it's the 1 st quarter. For instance speaking from a business perspective here apple stocks could fall esp since 65% of last revenue came from iPhone sales that very dangerous for s company apple has to come with something really spectacular to maintain this growth for future quarters.

    Thank you very much also for reminding me as I am a member of all 3 as I have all 3 platforms completely slipped my mind esp when I had iphone from it launched does that make me a native?

    I could defend myself and was not rilling up no natives by saying it's still to early to claim victory who's being overly sensitive here, when you say something people here are so quick to jump on the attack, but if one was to retaliate they are reported. Just because ones in Rome doesn't mean one cannot have a different thought pattern that the norm take 300 hundred for instance.

    Who is crying foul?
    Is it crying foul to state that you use a particular platform As well so I can really do a real comparison? Just because certain people have there own opinion everyone should just conform and agree to everything

    Out of curiosity (not that I don't already know the answer to this but I'll humor your response)...why exactly are you committing to this opposition role in this thread?

    It's a thread discussion a single quarter. Yes...and within that single quarter, there was a tremendous success...a success that Apple has regularly enjoyed historically. You, for whatever reason, want to highlight and reflect the down times as if that is where Apple usually finds itself...but why you think that, I honestly cannot fathom, because it's simply untrue.

    No one in this thread has even remotely implied that Apple is successful 100% of the time, nor are they trying to say that other companies are failures, in the nature of this thread, 100% of the time...but for some reason you're retorting to the thread as if both were the subject of discussion here.

    I'm actually surprised that you're trying to make a point that Apple only has a single victory under it's belt. It's so false it's actually humorous!

    The only "point" that I've actually seen from the guy in this thread has been the ones that he bizarrely deduced from the lot of us discussing Apples successful Q4 numbers (as was the original topic of the thread). Some how he turned that into people saying Apple is the king of all kings and has never faltered...and has now derailed the thread with this weird observation (that no one was feeding at all).

    In other words...he really had no relevant point, so he's trying to assign other people's comments to his own to try and maintain some kind of legitimacy in this thread.

    Okay fine, just breaking the mood a little. Although the likes of @JustMe'D and @H A W K have some very valid arguments.

    It doesn't matter. You are participating here at iMore and that's the only one I'm concerned with.
    completely slipped my mind esp when I had iphone from it launched does that make me a native?
    I do recall saying to not point out the Apple products you've owned or currently own as if that's makes it okay...

    I could defend myself and was not rilling up no natives by saying it's still to early to claim victory who's being overly sensitive here,
    We saw the article as proof of what we had been saying all alone that Apple is not doomed anytime soon, and nothing more. You, however, seemed to take offense to that.
    when you say something people here are so quick to jump on the attack, but if one was to retaliate they are reported.
    Dude, this is iMore and we are very tolerant, but that doesn't mean we won't stand our ground. As for reporting people who retaliate, that's usually done by the person who started the ruckus. I mentioned that, too, when I said don't cry foul when the feedback becomes overwhelming.
    Just because ones in Rome doesn't mean one cannot have a different thought pattern that the norm take 300 hundred for instance.
    You do recall what happened to the 300, right?

    Who is crying foul?
    Right now it's you.
    Is it crying foul to state that you use a particular platform As well so I can really do a real comparison? Just because certain people have there own opinion everyone should just conform and agree to everything
    If you invite someone to your home and through their indifference, start telling you how they dislike all the things in your house, would you be offended? Yes, you would. You'd be offended not necessarily for the fact that he or she didn't like the things in your home, but because he or she didn't have the decency to keep that crap to themselves while you entertained them in your home.

    Would a wise one bank everything on 1/4?
    Would a wise person talk about where we are in the current quarter as if it is relevant to discussion about the last quarter?

    Don't act like you're being wise when you're saying silly things. There's a reason Q4 is looked at carefully. It's a quarter when devices are released and it's one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year. Not all quarters are created equally. A wise person would realize this.

    Apple is compared vs Samsung because we aren't in a hypothetical future where other devices are as successful as these two brands.
