“Google’s management team is dancing around its new KitKat statue today, having dodged what could have been a competitive bullet or two from Apple, such as a new iWatch, iTV or even a new laptop. For heaven’s sake, they didn’t even announce a new iPad! There was nothing new from Apple [on Tuesday] that stops Google’s market share march forward,” Anton Wahlman writes for TheStreet. “Another company that’s having a field day today: Nokia. Apple’s new iPhone 5C is seemingly a flawless copy of the Nokia 620 that’s already been available for several months.”
“Fingerprint sensor? You mean the same thing I got on my Dell laptop in 2007? And on the Motorola trix Android smartphone in January 2011? If Apple’s latest claim to fame is to having copied a Dell 2007 laptop and a January 2011 Motorola smartphone, then Apple is in trouble,” Wahlman writes. “Which is why Google is celebrating today.”
“Back to the plastic iPhone 5C for a moment: Isn’t the point about this kind of plastic that it’s supposed to be relatively scratch-resistant, compared to the regular iPhone 5? No sooner did Apple show the 5C, before it also introduced cases for it,” Wahlman writes. “Gee, that’s a sign of confidence! NOT. For those of you who have recent Samsung (SSNLF) smartphones, whether the 2011 Galaxy Nexus or the newer Galaxy S3 and S4 models, you know that they are resistant to scratches and don’t require special cases. Have you seen anyone using a Samsung with a case around it? Me neither.”
MacDailyNews Take: Since you usually have to pay actual money for a case, why would you expect any fragnamdroid settler to have one?
Wahlman writes, “You know what’s better than the best customer service in the world? No need for customer service in the first place, that’s what. This is what Google offers with Android and Chrome. Google doesn’t need stores for customer service, because their products don’t require any customer service. They’re so easy to use, and they don’t fail. Synchronization is automatic. There is nothing complicated to set up!”
MacDailyNews Take: From which planet is this blatant hit-whore transmitting his link bait?
Wahlman writes, “Look, Apple’s hardware is pretty good. It’s beautiful stuff, and it’s quality. In other words, just like Nokia. Apple just happens to have far more apps, which is the crucial difference.”
MacDailyNews Take: Apple “just happens to have far more apps.” Because they invented the modern day smartphone — upon which Android is heavily based, no less.
Wahlman writes, “If these two new iPhone 5 models is [sic] all that Apple has, Google will now run all over Apple in the coming months.”

MacDailyNews Take: Hopefully, this mess was meant to be satire, not just poorly-written tripe under a link bait headline that claims something about which no proof is offered.
