Comment Re:Is this the internet? (Score 1) 53

Where I work (~120 employees) I've noticed more Android phones than iPhones, probably 65/35 with Android winning out. We do have people move from one platform to the other, but I've noticed more people going from iOS to Android than the other way around.

Last few people I asked why they switched. When they went to Android it was cost. The few people switching to iOS from Android said they were given a free iPhone (as in: no contract renewal, they were literally given the phone from family/friends. They said they wouldn't have changed to iPhone otherwise.)

That's still 40 or so iPhones here. Four to five years ago we had more iPhones than Android phones.

most people have forgotten the distinction between a search bar and an address bar

Yep. Just last week I saw someone searching for their bank through Google rather than typing it in the address bar. I explained why it's bad to do that in layman-friendly terms and all I got was a blank stare.

It doesn't help that some browsers are combining the search and address bar; these really should be kept separate.

" and it might bill the holdouts for the full retail cost of the phone."
Which Samsung I'm pretty sure already technically paid them off for.

How can you be so sure? I am thinking based on such actions that Samsung will not reimburse Verizon at all until the phones are retrieved from their customers.
