    Heavy iDevices user - macbooks, iPhones, ipads - I am mostly happy with apple's devices and services. Using windows phone and windows 8 mainly for its metro interface.

    Aapl since their stock has dropped below $600...android, because they created an OS that isn't compatible with anything except their own app store (chrome notebook)....I guess if you are already emersed in their eco system, this probably won't suck as much.

    I decided after Google released the hot pile of crap called the Chromebook Pixel, that Google is my most hated. I can't really say if they're "evil" with all of the other things that happened, but if they're charging 1300$ bucks for that crap, they're even crazier than Apple. At least Apple has more to offer for that price.

    I didn't like apple for a long time mainly itunes kept making my PC and laptops suffer to death now I found the problem by going through 10 to 15 webpages of apple support on there website

    Which it told to download some software to see what was conflicting with itunes it was my filter software so I uninstall the software and now it works a treat very smooth.

    However I don't like it how you can't bluetooth anything to any devices either apple product, can't delete music or videos from the device only by itunes.

    I don't like android due to adware and having to sort it out for a staff member with the issue adverts are all over on the notification bar, pops up at anytime

    So I like both and I hate both

    To be honest I hate google more than I hate apple. Google steal and sell your data, are being immature as regards the little support for windows phones and the tax fiddles ( I am in the UK so my version of events may be different) Apple like people above have said charge 4 and 5 times they should be charging just because the back of their "faster, thinner and better" devices have either a shiny or backlit apple on the back of them. They are corrupt, suing OEM companies like Samsung, Intel, LG ect for making them hardware components and then suing them for if they use it on their own devices. I also don't like the people who buy Apple products, especially if they have more than two of their products, when you can sense an apple fanboy. Thinking they are better than everyone else for having devices that cost as much as they do. Apple like to make out they are the evolutionists of technology when in fact apple has invented nothing at all. There is not one thing apple make that they have invented themselves, not even the apple logo. There are a lot of sharks in the IT industry but I really do have faith in Microsoft. They get a lot of stick form people who don't know what they are talking about, they look after their customer (13 years back up on windows XP is what I call customer support) they aren't trying to shove the latest and greatest versions of their products down your throat, they don't slag off other companies. They are a great company to invest your money into.

    According to a HTC Wildfire user that phone is better than my HTC titan just because it doesn't run windows phone. To her, even a BlackBerry Curve 8520 is better than my titan. Guthix grant me power...
    Hahahaha. Seriously? The Titan is a fantastic phone, very underrated and over looked. Had mine a year, which is the longest Ive ever had a phone, they are brilliant smartphones. Great display.

    Well considering this is being typed on an iPad, and my default search engine on all devices is Bing.....

    But what I really dislike is that Nokia did an exclusive deal with AT&T for the 920. :(

    Apple, because they are the most hypocritical bunch of crap talker ever in existence. I mistrust Google to some extend, but I don't really dislike them. Most of all because I can use the most important Google tools (Google Search, Google Maps, Google Scholar, and watching Youtube videos, and no, in my country Bing is not an option) without using an account.
    Why do you feel Apple is hypocritical ?

    I dislike Apple. Apple fans blindly buy their products, dont even give others a look. they dont bother to make an INFORMED decision
    If someone has been using an iPad for a couple of years and they like it, why would they bother to waste time considering anything else. What can be done on a Surface RT that can't be done on an iPad. Why should I switch ? (Other than Excel, yes Numbers is available for the iPad, but unless you're using simple spreadsheets, Numbers doesn't even come close. )

    I don't trust Google, but I'm not being forced to use them, or pressured to join the cool users of them or other non-Windows products. I like Windows. Everyone else can eat poop.

    Competition between google, apple and Microsoft will only make mobile phones better. So I do not hate one over the other. In fact I use the best devices and services of these all three.
    I have HTC 8x

    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.
    I'm ready to move on from Fhotoroom as well because of this. I mean, I am no photography snob (though I dabble more seriously than most average folks). And wouldn't dare tell people what kinds of pictures to take and post. But the abundance of self portraits is driving me nuts

    Many things really. iPad won't let you access the filesystem in any way (and share local data between apps) and also plugging in your flashdrive or harddrive and transferring data or using the device itself as easy data transfer device is impossible. The USB itself is a huge advantage (420 million supported devices is a mind blowing number - includes my happy mini-Coke-USB-fridge :-) ). I can even hack it to support all ARM compiled desktop applications including the classic DOSBox and all classic games - amazing fun :-) . But of the useful things - for example recently, I downloaded a czech subtitles for a movie and sadly they hadn't the correct encoding. So I just opened the file in notepad, changed it and there I went. On iPad, this would be quite a hard task.
    Other things I like - access to other devices in my network, SmartGlass for music and video, and the unified design experience across desktop, phone and tablet. Finally there is also the Touch cover, which is very practical.

    But I also know there are some downsides of Surface like performance, or Music playback stability.

    Everyone has his favorite :-) .

    use of a usb port which you can add an usb hub for more ports, I've done it. Microsd expansion which can also be used for apps if you know how to hack it. Built in kick stand which to the contrary of peoples thoughts is actually quite useful. Just to name a few reasons.

    Google... because it's so hard to stop using their products. Google search is clean and easy to use. Bing... too convoluted.

    I can't stand Android and think it's the worst OS of all the main ones out. That's where Google and Microsoft switch roles. Android being convoluted, while WP being clean, easy and a pleasure to use.

    I like the Bing wallpapers and move backgrounds. I find it quite pleasing, not to mention the cool info I learn along the way. Plus I get search credits to redeem for stuff, and my searches are more relevant then what I get from Google. But again yea those are my points and my opinions.

    I don't really care about Apple, since they were the ones who made touchscreen smartphones popular. They were first to actually encourage developers to develop for their platform successfully. They were the ones who forced Microsoft, Nokia and RIM to innovate. They are the ones to actually stand up against the blatant patent thieves of the industry (Samsung), and win (once). Plus, they have had success under Steve Jobs. So, to a certain extent, I admire Apple.

    As for Google, they can rot in a corner. If you hate Google, use Youtube all day with Adblock Plus, and don't click on the recommended links. Trust me :)
