It really annoys me when people use it because 'the kids think it's cool', which seems to happen in the case of 'i' more than 'apps'.

I'm surprised I haven't started seeing iYogurt or iCookies or something of the sort.

No, I use it because I like what it does. If I was the only one using it, I'd love anyways. That's why I always use my motto: Always test yourself and judge by yourself. Never trust user-reviews, and the like.

Oh, no, I wasn't judging people who have the iPhone, iPod, (etc).

Whatever, everything seems to have its own names for things these days. xbox has achievements and ps3 has trophies, but it's not like you're actually achieving anything (or getting a trophy), but the fact is that it's the word that the company has assigned to it, so there's no reason to call it anything else. I think that it's pointless to judge someone on the fact that they use the term that the company who makes the device assigned to it.

I don't like apple, I don't like the iPhone, but honestly I don't care if other people like what I don't, I got over that.

You tired bud. He meant he wouldn't trust someone's product review and only judged something after he reviewed it personally instead of saying something sucked just because someone else said it.

Yes, but he said that in response to what I said, and if he interpreted that way I didn't really mean ithat.
