Default Re: 44% of prospective smartphone buyers to choose iPhone

For all of those who spread FUD about Apple and the iPhone, you have
your work cut out for you. It isn't working for what you have done so
far. I find only the ignorant are easily swayed by mindless anti-Apple
FUD, and these weak minded ones only suffer after selecting
Blackberries, Nokia, and Palm when they see how others with iPhones
are having a boat load more fun with their easy to use investment.

Those new to Apple with the iPhone are now looking at their computers,
the new Mac Book Pros are sold out and in short supply for future
purchase. A look at OSx shows a whole wave of hardware/software
hackers who are building a Hackintosh just to be able to run the Mac
OS without all the viruses and malware that inhabits the Windows
world.

There are efficacious ethical pharmaceuticals to treat the sort of
public insecurity illustrated in your post.

Drugs, too.
