To me, the better person is the one who can acknowledge the benefits of a product/company despite being a fan of something else.

If you are looking for a toy that is limited in it's capabilities and are not technical at all then the Iphone is a better device. If you want something that can do what you want it to and be able to customize it as you wish then you ant Android. Your Evo is a much better device. Security holes? Which ones are hey speaking of?

I'm not sure how long Google knew about the issue, but seems to be damn good for an update.

Did they ever fix the iPhone security issue where they showed hackers could access all private information on the device in less than six minutes? Hackers could jailbreak an iPhone (even when locked) and bypass all security.
How long did it take Apple to acknowledge and fix the ability to take over a jailbroken phone with an SMS message?

"The survival of a target at Pwn2Own does not automatically declare it safer than a target that went down," last year's Internet Explorer Pwn2Own winner Peter Vreugdenhil cautions. The contestants who were lined up to beat the Android and WP7 devices in the competition withdrew for a variety of reasons.

iPhone. So simple that even an ***** can use it. So lock down only an ***** can enjoy it.
I say ingore the fanboys as they do not know anything. This goes double for Apple fanboys who I have found of the major fanboys to be the worse at understanding anything technological. They just repeat what ever their church (Apple) or God (Steve Jobs) says no matter if it is true or not. They are complete worthless when it comes to getting any real help on any matters with techology. This goes double if it is an Apple product as their response is "Call Apple care"

Snobby people don't deserve your time, regardless of device.

My first reaction is to ignore them. But if they continue just say that the security hole is already being addressed by Google and did not deny it or sweep it under the rug. Unlike Apple who will likely just blame the end user or say it is an industry wide problem (look at their reaction to "antenagate").Rooting comes with great power & great responsibilities.

I agree about fanboys though. People always think I'm one for iOS, but I will never own another iOS phone because it doesn't do what I want. I have an iPod Touch and an iPad, but I also have a G2x. I like iOS for media consumption, but Android for day to day phone use.

I would simply ignore them. The fact that they are attacking you shows they are weak, insecure, have issues of their own, wanting to desperately prove that their purchase was better than yours. I already had a personal dislike of Apple and the iPhone beforehand, but its been magnified working as tech support at VZW. As said before, sweeping generalizations are typically inaccurate.
But so far in my experience, the iPhone customers I help tend to be more arrogant, rude, rushed, impatient than their Android counterparts. They'll blame me if iTunes botches the firmware on their precious iPhone during a failed update. They'll blame me if they have issues with DRM on iTunes. One was a customer with us since 1993 and he wanted to leave simply because ATT had a better price on the iPhone (mind you, it was $49 for a 3GS model). I can't believe someone would leave after 18 years with a company because of this, but this is the "god" phone we are talking about here, it does crazy things to people!
