Excellent article on this topic - thank-you for posting it!
Classic cars are a great analogy for Apple's design philosophy - have a look at the evolution of the Porsche 911 from 1964 to 2008:Apple is not and will not change things just for the sake of change. And while some may now be clamoring for this change, the paradox is that if Apple did make some big changes, many of the same people would b**** and moan about them. Apple is smart enough to know that in this case, most people don’t really want change, they just think that they do because that’s the easiest way to perceive value: visual newness.

OK, so you have a whole ecosystem of Apple products and obviously have a lot of love for their user experience. But also understand, at this point, it's hard to change and go with something else, like you mentioned the S3. You also say that you didn't give other products "much of a chance," and "doomed from the beginning." OK I get it, you're an Apple fanboy and that's perfectly fine.steve-0101 wrote: ↑Sep 17th, 2012 9:38 pmI kept the phone for a day and sold it the next day and went back to my iPhone 4. I admit I didn;t give it much of a chance. It was doomed from the beginning.
So then it came to syncing with my computer. We're a Mac household. I installed Kies on my Mac Mini to get my music over. No go. I spent hours trying to get it to work. It wouldn't see the phone. Googled and lots of people have problems with Kies + OSX. Tried Android File Transfer. No go. I was able to connect the phone via wifi to Kies and tried to move some music over - brutally slow. I can't imagine moving 30GB of music that way. Plus, you *need* Kies for major firmware upgrades. I tried again, boom the Mac sees the phone. I move a few songs over onto the phone and disconnect to test out the music player. Think I could connect again? Not a chance.

Not sure why you used Kies. Copying music has been the best portion of using Android comparing with iPhone.
Just connect the USB cable, drag and drop the music files. Done.
Haha, I would least expect an Android device, or SAMSUNG, to be capable of working with a Mac or other Apple products. Did you try it with a PC?steve-0101 wrote: ↑Sep 17th, 2012 10:20 pmHave you used a mac with an S3? It doesn't work. With ICS there is no more UMS mode so when I plug it in, OSX doesn't mount it as it should. It doesn't even see it. Believe me, I tried everything (MTP vs PTP, different software, etc). If I could have just dragged music onto it, I would have.

People buying sushi should not try to give me their logic at why they like it, because i absolutely don't think it is logical to eat something that tastes like crap.

Yes, we have an Apple ecosystem. I'm not a fanboy as I am willing to and have tried other products. In fact many of my friends who've seen my S3 have said "what do you think of it?" - and my answer has always been "great phone, I highly recommend it". But, as I said, it's just not for me. Having used an iPhone for 5 years now, I *like* that it doesn't change much with each iteration. I understand and appreciate that some people don't agree with this. But it's just my opinion.BKAY wrote: ↑Sep 18th, 2012 2:06 pmOK, so you have a whole ecosystem of Apple products and obviously have a lot of love for their user experience.

Haha im the exact opposite. I got an ipod nano from a solarwinds event and ive never installed itunes, barf. Ive seen how it "works" on my wifes computer, im not a conspiracy theorist but part of me thinks apple makes it as bloaty and ***** as possible just to make noobs believe that its their "crappy pc" and they need a "good mac" to run it properly. There is no visible reason why that relatively simple program should need as much juice as it seems to just to run quick and smooth.Lovable wrote: ↑Sep 17th, 2012 11:25 pmAs someone with a huge collection of music and organization on iTunes, not having it when using my S3 and HTC One X was such a pain. Thankfully, iSyncr exists.
I will be glad to leave those two phones behind (as great as they are) and to have something familiar (and nice to look at) again.
