@LadyBlackheart:  Why can’t Apple products play well with others??

Easy. Becasue then they wouldn’t have a product “monopoly.”

I’m sure there is a quick fix to your problem.  You should google it.

@LadyBlackheart:  I checked out a few Apple forums to see if other people had these problems, and they do. One is to let your friends know to change your contact info in their phone from “iPhone” to “other”. If that doesn’t work, when they send the text and it turns blue, as iMessages all do, they can hold their finger on the blue text they just sent, and an option will appear to “send as text message” right away.

@LadyBlackheart:  H hates Apple, I haven’t used them in years. For some reason every time I would try to sync my ipod my entire music library would get deleted, including songs I paid for….just seemed to completed for me.

Apple doesn’t play well with others is exactly my beef with Apple. I don’t own anything Apple, and I never will. I won’t even download Apple software because it messes up my PC.

It’s one of the modern day evil megacompanies. There always have to be some, at least the way society is structured right now. I still remember when they were “the little guy” and the quality of their products was much better, and market positioning tactics much more benign.

I’m a Windows Phone user myself. I did try Apple and Android before, and Android was better, but Windows phone is best. I also really love the Surface, it’s a whole other world as compared to ipads – it’s most like a very portble real computer where the ipad is like a very large phone (although I hate Windows 8 on a heavy-duty computer. But it’s great on the phone/Surface).

I’m not loyal to windows in particular though… if a better phone or slate comes out down the road, I’ll choose that instead. But this is where it’s at for now, IMO.

@joya_aspera:  Windows 8 is the bane of my existence, I cannot stand it.

I am on the other side of the fence as most of you laides, as I love my iPhone and we just got an iPad mini. But this is mostly due to the fact that I have been using Apple since I was in elementary school. I’m just really used to it.

However when I want to play my Nancy Drew or Sims games, I have to use a PC because for gaming, my MacBook is just too slow (granted it’s nearly 6 years old.. ancient in laptop speak).

@honie309:  Try it on the Surface… it’s really meant for that. A match made in heaven.

I had to get rid of it off my work machine a few days after I installed it, though. Very irritating.

@joya_aspera:  You’re the first person I’ve heard of on here that also uses a windows phone:) I agree the surface looks awesome.

@LadyBlackheart:  I can’t really help you, but I wanted to say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE my S3!  It’s so awesome.  Also, Apple is extremely incompatible with other products/software.  Very frustrating!
