    Default Shut Up And Take My Money!

    First of all I saw this and it got me thinking...

     


    This is what I hate. People always do this and it just sucks. People buy iPhones because of it's brand name and they don't even care that android funs are better. Also every time a Pokemon game or almost every Nintendo game or famous game this happens. This just angers me that people aren't smart consumers, I personally always do research before I buy something new. Anyways thoughts and opinions in this matter?

    Well have you thought people may actually like the pokemon games they play or iphones? I know people who had droids and iphones but they still choose the iPhone more suited them. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean the other world just blindly buys it.

    Though what apple does is they create something awesome. Strip it of it's features and sell it and about half a year add it's features and re-sale it. More $$$. I don't mind what people do or don't buy or how they buy. Any type of buying helps the economy so eh.

    I do agree with blueangel. Though I question why Apple made another Ipad. But People will buy anything with a new title or anything that starts with I-anything. I mean you can see this in video games a lot. Call of Duty packages the same game every year and people still buy it in record numbers. But you know its there money so how they spend it. It's really there choice.

    Umm...okay, so let me get this straight, just so we're clear. You hate the fact that people buy iPhones because of the brand name, since in THEIR opinion, iPhones are better, despite the fact that you, in YOUR opinion, think that Android phones are better. Ah...silly young Padawan.

    If we decided to have an iPhone vs Android debate, it would last forever because people like certain things about each of them. This eventually leads to brand loyalty and I HIGHLY doubt that there aren't a few brands out there that you don't buy simply because of the name.

    People buy Apple products because they like them, because they are familiar with them and basically know what to expect out of them. People buy Android products for the same reason. When it comes to Pokemon, at this point, you are either a loyal fan who has been playing since the beginning, a young kid who likes to collect things or a person who has been hating Pokemon since they came up with Chikorita. The same thing happens with every single bloody video game franchise. Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Sonic, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Grand Theft Auto, Harvest Moon, Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, Rock Band, Metal Gear, Mario, Halo, Legend of Zelda. People buy them because they are familiar with them and don't need to do research on them (and again, go ahead and tell me that you don't do this all).

    To all sum all this up, people are loyal to certain brands because they know what to expect out of them (on some basic level). While this can lead to blind loyalty, its their opinions about something that lead them to pick certain things just as your opinions lead you to do the exact same thing. To criticize the opinions of others while forming your opinions in the same manner is quite silly.
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    I research items, a lot. I'm picky with what I want. I never understood why everyone buys apple products just because of extra gigs that don't relate to any real functionality, like apps, web surfing, and games. If you're going to buy an mp3 player to just listen to music, buy a chinese knock-off product and you get the same efficiency for half the price. This is why I got the zune, which is more audiophile based and it didn't contain third-party apps that didn't make it useless.
    I find it the same with phones. $400 a pop for a smartphone with so many capabilities, yet a lot of people my age don't come around to using them. Just texting, web surfing, and calling.
    Usually I consider how often I will use the particular item. Also, if its free, yoink!

    I'm sure people buy product when it first comes out, because it's new and they want to experience it, but I don't think people just buy apple because it's popular. I see people, in fact most, with different phones. I myself have old samsung one. iPhone just has lots of features and they probably already have all that apple stuff anyway. It's not you who decides what people buy but them but you shouldn't just say it is that. I like Nintendo games, Mario and Pokemon are great, I also like Sega, there is nothing wrong with that.
