    I have an iPhone. I have friends with Android phones and I do not begrudge them for this.

    I don't really understand extreme brand loyalty at all. Its like Intel vs ATI or AMD vs Nvidia. Who gives a shit what's under the hood as long as video games are being played. In the case of cell phones, who really cares as long as the texts and phonecalls are getting made. I mean really.

    I Have an android now.

    I never really wanted an iphone because of the aesthetics. But i guess it's pretty much functionally the same.

    This one is totally let down by the last panel punchline for me. We had already established that Gabe had a Windows phone; the fact that he would send a message via said phone is neither unexpected nor humorous.

    But I do like the line 'YOUR OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE IS DEMONSTRABLY LESS RICH!'

    I thought the "boodle-ing" was something Charles said or some weird sound effect for his current actions.

    It's funny because they're literally only separated by a door, and Gabe could just walk out and apologize face to face, yet wants to be a dick so he texts it via said Windows phone.

    I still think it would have been funnier if Gabe's email denied having the phone.

    Also if he's gonna send him that message it's going to have that tag at the bottom. If it didn't it wouldn't make any sense.

    Eh, I suppose. I guess Gabe's face looks pretty genuinely sorry in the first panel to me so it doesn't seem to me that he's intentionally trying to be a dick. I like it a little better after re-reading it, I just feel like it's not a very strong denouement.

    Why don't people like Charles' googles? I love his goggles, they're so randomly hipster. They're his trademark. Is it time for Gabe to stop wearing his Pac-Man shirt too?

    Yeah, that's why I don't think it's that funny that it does: it's totally logical and expected. Ah, well.

    Man, Charles has been wearing goggles for 11 years. I think that pre-dates the hipster movement.

    I have an Android phone, which I love. The only thing I envy from iOS is the aforementioned apps which apparently "bring all the boys to the yard", but if an app is good enough sooner or later it will be available on Droid.

    Actually now Droid has a small victory on this, since with the boom of Google+, the mobile app is only available for Android and all my iPhone-owning friends got squat.

    The only thing I couldn't bear to lose by moving to iOS is the widgets Android has, I use them so much.

    Gabe looks sad, because look what's in front of him.

    A retarded lamp that doesn't even look like a lamp.

    He bought a shitty lamp, and now he feels bad. And if he opens that door, he'll be exposing the shitty lamp to the world, and will be ridiculed beyond belief.

    I'd look sad all the time if I had a lamp that looked that silly.

    Charles was a hipster before it was hip. Or something.

    nope

    they've pretty much got this shit down to a science; yearly iterative release of the product is Apple's thing

    this close to their fall cycle, might as well sit tight and see what they announce.

    I can totally see them doing a presentation for the public release of iOS 5 having Jobs do a 'oh, and one more thng...' and now there's iOS 5, on the iPhone 5.
