I was walking to Grand Central Station last Thursday night around eleven and there was a huge line of people camped out. At first I was baffled even though I told myself a long time ago I needed to stop letting things I see in New York baffle me. But then I realized that there must be an Apple store somewhere nearby and they were lined up to get the new iPhone. And sure enough I was right.

I own exactly one thing made by Apple. I won the old square mini iPod one Christmas at work and it still works great. I never had an iPhone. I never even wanted one, to be honest. I had a Palm Pre and now I have a Samsung Galaxy X III. I know they are all the way up to five now but what do you want from me? And anyway now I wish I could get one of the new Notes that are coming out.

I love everything Samsung makes. My phone, TV and fridge are all made by Samsung and if they made cars I would buy one in a heartbeat. I hate that the note is coming out after the iPhone but I sort of think people don’t switch back and forth. The oddsmakers at Sports Betting Dime are predicting that the iPhone 6 Plus will way outsell the Samsung Note 4. Look at this (from the article):

Which “phablet” will sell more in Q4 2014:

  • iPhone 6 Plus: 1/4
  • Samsung Note 4: 4/1

You know what that tells me? It tells me that I need to download an app that explains how odds work. 1/4?  That doesn’t sound right….
