    Type in 'Teens think Apple is' into google. (Answer:They think it isn't cool anymore) I'm surprised TS hasn't run with this story yet, considering CNET, Neowin, Forbes, Yahoo and a few others all have. And that's just the first page of hits.

    Apple don't deserve money.

    The whole patent fiasco really shows what a corrupt and evil company they are.

    SAMSUNG ALL THE WAY!

    Teens can be fickle, I know because I ended my teens almost 40 years ago but things were different back then, life was much simpler & better. Having said that I still have my old Apple IIe PC & Hi Fi (Blaupunkt Cosmos with analogue tuner, cassette deck & turntable) which I bought in the early 80's stored away in my garage. Just keeping them for posterity.

    Ah, yes... Proof that market saturation and consumer product fatigue can happen to anyone, even Apple.

    The reason I got an iPhone is because I find Android is pretty unorganized in terms of an app eco system. The app store is filled with junk while the apple app store is clean. I am gonna get a Galaxy S4 next time... this iPhone 5 sucks... after a few months of having it I notice it feels quite generic

    ironically, thats the reason I GOT an android phone. The app store isnt monitored for things the phone developer doesnt like. In my opinion, android feels like a much more open (and therefore useable by me) OS.
