Roommates hospitalized after stabbing one another during heated iPhone vs. Android debate

As we’ve seen for years in the BGR comments section, debates between iPhone fans and Android fans can get pretty heated, although in most cases those debates devolve into accusing the other fan base of being rampant sex offenders, among other insults. Thankfully, to our knowledge none of these digital altercations has ever resulted in physical violence of any sort. The same cannot be said for two roommates who share an apartment in Tulsa, Oklahoma and who were hospitalized Friday morning after stabbing one another during an argument over whether iOS or Android is better.

Why Microsoft fans should buy an iPhone over Android (and over Windows Phone)

Why Microsoft fans should buy an iPhone over Android (and over Windows Phone)

Microsoft is still playing catch-up with its mobile business, being a distant third to Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS operating systems. That means many people choose an Android handset or an iPhone even though their desktop operating system of choice might be Windows.

In fact, in certain cases they might be better off buying iPhone instead of a Windows Phone model. More →
