Most non-Samsung phones have batteries that are not accessible, including the Nexus 5, most LG, most Motos, and tons of others. Many Samsung owner I know don't know they can replace their battery also. Most don't know the difference between a SIM and MicroSD card either.

For the $50 promotional advertising credit I got with my dog's Facebook he pulled down 7,500 fans. Granted he is not a brand, but there is some effectiveness with them. I personally haven't used Facebook outside of the pages (which are naturally ad free), so I can't testify to the experience for those who do. I don't want to keep tabs on people, but Squinky demands fame.

It's pretty amazing news really when you think that there are only a dozen or so other companies that are better liked and have better offerings doing the same thing for free.
In all seriousness though at $7 a month for 1 TB and Office 365 the people who still insist on Microsoft Office are getting a pretty good deal compared to $10 a month for 1 TB and Google Apps. I personally prefer Google Apps over Microsoft Office and prefer not having to use either in general, but the interoperability between other people still stuck in Office is undeniable. A few phone calls from people who use Office everyday but have no clue what they are doing who struggle with files from Google Docs makes having a copy around worth it.

I constantly have people refer to my Moto X as an iPhone and tell me that it's natural for me to use an iPhone since I work on a lot of Macs. I don't think the Slashdot crowd are the type to get duped, but I can recount tons of people who went in for iPhones and were sold on Galaxy S3 by Verizon sales critters. I don't think really either is going to make for a better life more than the next. You can play Angry Birds while you poop with either equally effectively.

Luck, that's when preparation and opportunity meet. -- P.E. Trudeau
