    What does this have to do with Linux advocacy and why do you hate the
    iPhone so much?
    In fact, why do you 'hate' in general so much?
    Why don't you try advocating Linux in a positive manner for a change
    instead of acting like
    a 5 year old whose jump rope isn't as nice as his mates.

    BTW putting [rival] in the subject doesn't resolve you of off topic
    spamming, something you seem to be very good at.

    Angry losers like Roy Schestowitz hate anything that is successful. Most
    people like and cheer for success. Bitter losers like Schestowitz despise
    anything that succeeds. It helps him cope with his own dismal failure.

    It took a while for the irony of this to dawn on me. I wonder why they
    want them at the top, but not in the middle?
