I imagine Jobs holding hands with Jerry Garcia and singing Freebird! Viva la Apple!

Apple products are all overpriced. You can almost always get a windows computer or android phone/tablet with better specs for a lower price. What apple excels at is advertising. Their products are trendy and we live in a culture where style is more important than substance.

I have an Ipod Touch 4th gen. I will say the Apple OS operates smoothly. I never have any errors pop up or have strange pauses on the IOS 5 device.

But I think people who are more knowledgeable about their phone or computer will prefer the level of customization and control offered by Windows and Android devices.

Techno nerds like android more because they can fool with it.

Everyone else that doesn't care and just wants something intuitive and reliable like apple.

Guess which one is 90% of the consumer base?

I'm not a techno nerd, but I still like the customization of my Galaxy.

You are absolutely right though. People want something that works straight out of the box with very little effort/confusion and is compatible with their every day life. That is Apple.

Android phones have improved their reliability, but Zod is right, most people want something that's easy to use and works without problems. Apple has made billions because of this, and I suspect they'll make billions more when the iPhone 5 debuts and is on par with the newest android phones like the S3.

I'm certainly not an Apple fanboy, and I much prefer my Rezound over my wife's 4s, but u have to hand it to Apple for their very astute PR and sales tactics. Hard to argue with $624 bn and growing.

If by 90%, you mean 30%. Samsung alone makes up almost 24% of the smartphone market now.
