I am an "iHater" too... Just my feelings.
The hype and nonsense simply annoy the crap out of me.
Diehard to the end here.
However, if I could have a phone to just play around with, I'd rather have an Android device. That appeals to me much more than iAnything.
The source of my iAnnoyance is with the iPod I bought and tried to use. I hated everything about it. iTunes, importing music, burning, DRM. It just went on from there.
It just shouldn't be that way. It should be EASY!
