Donald Bell is the biggest Apple fanboy in the world

by Charbax - 10/28/09 8:28 PM

As of now the A5IT is so much better than the current iPod Touch. It makes absolutely no sense to rate Archos 3/5 good versus iPod Touch 4.5 Outstanding.

Donald Bell is the biggest Apple fanboy in mass media.

Sure, we would like Archos to release Android 2.0 firmware update with support for 12 thousand Android apps, we would like 10mbit/s MKV, we would like full 3D GPS.

But even without those, even with only 1000 Android apps that one can find on Google or AppsLib and install manually, even with 3500kbit/s MKV (or better, I haven't tested the latest firmware), even with only basic 2D GPS, still missing high resolution and 3D maps and no in-car dock available yet, still with all this, the Archos 5 Internet Tablet is 10000x better value for money than the iPod Touch.

If Donald Bell wants to speculate that "more people will still buy the iPod Touch", be it for economic, political or marketing reasons. Donald Bell is NOT supposed to do sales estimates (pure activity of fanboys), he is supposed to SUBJECTIVELY decide what product is coolest in his (supposedly) nerdy and geeky viewpoint.

Donald Bell is supposed to represent the geeks and tech enthusiasts that search blogs and review sites for reviews of tech products to find out WHICH IS COOLEST. He is not supposed to rate Archos at 60% and Apple products with a 90% rating JUST because he thinks more consumers are going to buy Apple.

He is a pure Apple fanboy.
