    I dislike google more, I like to have some privacy. I also dont like to ads in the email account. Um I don't think I have ever come a cross android fan boys. Must be a stroke of luck. Also when I mark email from google as spam, it sometimes passes the filters and comes through anyway, annoying. I wish the email app on my phone had a button to automatically throw google mail into the spam folder.

    I like Apple and hate Google. Say what you want about Apple, but as a user and customer you feel safe and sound using their products.

    I like to use Google's search engine, and still use the email service (so many still email my gmail account), I hate their privacy practice. I don't like Apple because they not only escort you into their walled garden, they bolt the door rendering it useless for anything except looking pretty. Hard to escape. With that being said, I liked my Android for the features. I liked my iPhone because it ran so smoothly. If I was stuck to choose between Android and the iPhone, I'm not sure which I would choose: Android can be superb in apps, fun, showing off, everything but in communications. Yet, I'm not wanting a commitment with Apple.Between Google and Apple: I dislike Google more because of the shady practices. One if these days I'm going to have to dump their search engine.

    Oh and I come across fanboys of them all. My brother calls everything crap that's not an android, and so do a lot of others. They're not as snotty as some of the Apple lovers I've run into, but they hold an inner smugness, waving everything off that doesn't support the green robot. IPhone users: need I say more? And you will quite possibly get cussed out at Crackberry.com for choosing something over a Blackberry...

    You can't choose between these two. They are one and the same, no?

    Because the last few weeks I've seen nothing but self portraits on Fhotoroom, I can see where that app is going while EyeEm is full of serious photographers.

    Almost all gadgets in my house (desktop, laptop, phones, tablets) are Windows based with the exceptions of an old Macbook (for testing purposes), a Nexus 7, a few Logitech Revue devices. Having said that, I'd take Google any day over the evil Apple! The Nexus 7 was $199 when I bought; compare that with Apple's non-pocketable iPad mini for $329.
    Apple is a rip-off, leech. I despise them. If Google or Microsoft ever manage to crush that snooty company then I'd be happy.

    Apple's prices may be high, but at least Apple is upfront and transparent about their business. It involves you, Apple and your cash. It doesn't involve backroom deals with 3rd parties that subsidize the cost of your purchase, in exchange for the right to track everything you do online, which most people don't even realize is part of the deal.

    I used Android since 2010 before getting my 8x last month and I still use a lot of Google services like gmail, Google + and others. I have never used anything that was made by Apple. I have never had an ipod. Back in high school and my early college days I would just use my PSP as an mp3 player before I stumbled upon a 30 gb Zune someone sold me for $30. I can't really say I hate Apple because I have never used any of their products besides the couple of times I used them in stores or from a friend. But if I had to choose between one of them, I would say Google.

    I dislike Google because of their privacy policy and intentionally blocking services like maps, youtube etc to windows phone by not giving an official app and neither willing to let Microsoft developers write an app.

    Another reason I'm generally okay with Apple and not Google: Apple has the guts and the power to stand up to carriers (I hate carriers) while Google doesn't have the guts and just says yes to everything the carriers ask for. Yet Google still decides to bully Microsoft's Windows Phone.

    I don't really hate either. The company I don't really like is Facebook, mainly because I hate the trend of having to use Facebook to access other services, such as Spotify.
    Oh yeah, them too. I hate how Facebook won't make us a proper app, and even though I don't care for Instragram, I think we need it.

    I used to dislike Apple and their smug zealots while their cult leader was around, but now that the distortion field wearing off, I kind of feel sorry for them. I still love working on OS X for graphics stuff, and still will never buy another iOS device. I used to like Google when I thought that a completely open sandbox was better than a walled garden, but that wore off quickly when I was spending more time dinking with the OS than enjoying the product, and then feeling completely abandoned with my Droid 2 Global that was never going to see another update after they finally got email to work 7 months after being stuck with that stupid device. Now am pretty indifferent to them, and often confused by their UI and business decisions. They feel so alien, and it's like they only build products for themselves. I used to hate Microsoft with every fiber of my being when I had to go through the monthly reformat to keep Win95/98 going, but I really like the changes they've made lately and I love my Surface Pro and Nokia 920.

    I'm sure all this will change again as new regimes take over and the companies evolve.

    I dislike Google more than Apple now a days simply because of their moto "Do No Evil" is now "Do lots of evil but make everyone think that we're not at all"

    I love how their Android system is like the new Windows of the 90s of the mobile world, lots of malware etc.

    Stupid subject. Why dislike any of them? Both are great innovating companies, but right now I prefer the Windows Phone/Nokia/Microsoft combination.

    At least the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are real computers. Yes, they are expensive, but they're computers that will run any OS (even Windows or Linux).

    The Chromebook Pixel is nothing but an overpriced terminal. No Internet access = no computer at all.

    I agree with you. I've owned apple products in the past and have had issues with every one of them. I believe that they're over hyped and over priced.

    Apple's prices may be high, but at least Apple is upfront and transparent about their business. It involves you, Apple and your cash. It doesn't involve backroom deals with 3rd parties that subsidize the cost of your purchase, in exchange for the right to track everything you do online, which most people don't even realize is part of the deal.
    At least not that they'll admit to.

    I don't dislike either company, but as far as fanboys go, Google/Android fans are insufferable creatures; notable for accusing anyone with an iDevice, WP or tablet for being a zealot while trying to convert people to Android and infiltrating Apple or Windows-centric forums to push their agenda or just troll. Known to frequently utter phrases like "freedom" (they don't know what this means), "widgets" (which most don't use because it makes homescreens hiccup), and "root" (maybe because Android phones are so thoroughly molested by carriers that it's handicapped out of the box).
