EmailsEdit

Hello there buzzers out loud!


I just wanted to comment on a statement last week on episode 1276 about the convoluted process to receive the “”free bumper”". I agree that it seems like a mell of a hess, but as has been my experience with Apple, they’ve yet again exceeded my expectations. I purchased a bumper a few days after I received my pre-ordered iPhone 4 from the Apple Store. I’ve been meaning to go and inquire about getting my $30 back but last week I got an email saying that they noticed I purchased a bumper and will be refunded. When I looked at my bank account, the money had been returned. So, nice job Apple on the experience. Sometimes I think about it and get annoyed about being forced to buy a bumper or else I’d have an iPod touch that could sometimes make calls, but realized I bought one anyway to keep it safe and pretty. So overall it’s been a great experience.


Love the show!

I’m sure you’ve come across it already, but the report you mentioned on yesterday’s show about 20% of Android users wanting another Android device has been corrected to say that 20% of all smartphone owners would want an Android phone. http://www.businessinsider.com/that-story-saying-that-only-20-of-android-owners-say-theyll-buy-another-one-its-not-true-2010-7


This is a bit more consistent with the Nielson report earlier this year that showed that 70% of Android owners would buy another Android phone.
