    Search is their bread and butter. I don't think it's just a "means to an end". Search is how they make most of all of their money.

    Fully 96% of Google's revenue is from ads. Not search. Ads.

    For what? Ads? Ads not only keep YouTube going it pays content providers on YouTube.

    YouTube hardly pays content creators, it's very difficult to do. And you can still have ads and make money without being obnoxious about it.

    So that's why some people have been able to make their main source of income their YouTube income, because they hardly pay people. :|

    It can happen with any device. I recall reading a thread over on iMore awhile ago where an iPhone user said he was on his 28th. Yes, that's correct. I can't believe he kept going back for the same one! I believe it was a 4s, but I don't remember for sure. A lot of 920s were returned for dust under the camera lens (mine has it but it's my 2nd device and I don't use the FFC) or endless spinning gears. Considering that some of Samsung's high end phones themselves outsell all WP devices put together, it's not surprising that there will be a number of defects.

    Plus, add an inherent dislike for a certain brand, and any minor defect will seem major.
    but samsungs failure rate is higher just fyi
    i never said any company is perfect but samsung is just bad with their service and failure rate

    hmm very diff from my way.i usually keep my things for very long till they become ancient lol.used my old N70 for 4-5years ;) .changed it when usb port and camera cover got damaged and SD card slot got corrupted somehow.my dell laptop is reaching its 4rth year.thinking about getting a mac now.
    I usually keep 2devices .a laptop and a mobile one (ipad before. 1520now).
    Might get a cheaper smart phone as 1520 sometimes becomes too big to be used as a phone all the time.
    me too but i keep switching to an older phone in my drawer from time to time
    cant shake the feel of an old device ;)
    this week im using my old bold 2, missed its keyboard(i love wp keyboard as well but i love physical keyboards as well)

    You have bad luck. One person having bad problems with one companies products is just bad luck. Until 100-1000s of people have the same problems, they are just isolated incidents.

    But that's why there are warranties, you can get things fixed if they have problems.

    by 'some people', you mean about 1 percent of all people creating for youtube. You have to get a LOT of views before you get that much.

    Ads from search. That's the point I was talking about. Most of their revenue stream is from Admob and AdSense which deal with Search.

    How are they obnoxious? Or are you just want to pick something apart that is Google?

    Which deal with websites that sell out their visitors to google. With platforms like android and chrome that sell out their users. With services like Gmail and drive which sell out their users. With privacy violation after privacy violation to protect that revenue stream.

    Because I'm not dumping in Google or YouTube I am PR.

    And yes you insinuated that it's hard for content creators to make money when in fact many actually do. Its depends in how much work you put in, just like any other job.

    They don't sell out any users, did you even look up what Admob and AdSense is? Jesus, its like I tell people on here the actual truth then they continue to want to believe whatever they want and then call me out like I'm making stuff up. Like you are literally posting on the internet. Search these things.

    If you didn't read the TOS for products and services it's your own fault. I bet if you take a read through Microsoft TOS you will find a few interesting bits.

    im speaking for the rest of the world , not US and UK where the service centres are usually good
    even alot of european and asian countries sometimes have the worst service centres by alot of companies
    look man, you dont own google,android,samsung etc so why are you soo bent on proving that only your opinion and experience matters?!!
    just because you havent owned that product or because you had a good experience or because you just want to differ with others , doesnt mean MY OPINION doesnt matter, i had issues with samsung , i posted about it
    , its just a thread, keep it that way :)
    i dont have anything against you, in fact ive agreed to soo many of your posts as well, you put up a good arguement most of the time and i really enjoy some of your posts which usually contain alot of interesting and usually correct takes but it doesnt mean my experiences are not to be considered or something :)

    But only Google employees Eric Schmidt. A man that doesn't believe in human autonomy and would like to leverage Google to take that away from us.

    I never said, my experience and opinions matter but to speak on your experiences and say because it happened to you so it must be true for others is the wrong thing to do.

    Like I give a fudge what Eric Schmidt thinks. He is only one person in Google, Google as a whole is not represented by him alone.
