ComputerWorld: Ask a group of high school students what they think of the latest smartphones and cell phones and you'll likely hear a lot of "It's so cool" or "I hate it," with very little in-between.
No sh**? Pshh functionality...who cares about that ... once it's cool. xD
Ya, it's more along the lines of...What do all my friends have? I want that one.
ive never truly comprehended that either... i look at that situation and think "ill get what they dont have" unless of course the said device is one of few that perform a specific task well.
And this is why iPhones are popular. Dumb sheep who only care about how "cool" it looks.
Well in terms of coolness imo the iphone fell off. Many people think they are the tippy top dog, but since its become casual its lost a majority of its geek appeal. The ipad is next... just more casual consumers thinking they are tech savvy gurus -_-
Not entirely. The iTunes App Store assists Apple as well - and combined with the novelty of touch games and apps, many become excited about the phone. For many, the iPhone is a phone that works - and they don't need the complications Android has.
