Happy Saturday, iMore! Because Rich is awesome, he's letting us run some of his Mac-themed comics from the Diesel Sweeties archive on weekends. Bonus comics, woo! We hope you enjoy.
Read more comics from the Pixel Project on iMore.com.

The last sentence makes no sense.

I get just as many ads on my iPhone as I do with my android phones. My Windows Phone gets the least. If you buy an app on any of them the ads go away. I don't understand what Apple, or the iCult is trying to prove with the ad snarkiness. The only info Google gives away is the same stuff the iSheep willingly give away in permissions anyhow. Location. And honestly, I'd rather have better ads than the shit I'm getting on my iPhone right now.
Lol your comment is hilarious in how idiotic it sounds like
Posted via the iMore App for Android from my iPhone 6s with a cracked screen by 3D Touching too much
Actually it makes perfect sense. What your giving away in permissions is the applications right to track you for targeted ads, which by default your iPhone does anyways. Ever wonder why you can go into settings-privacy-advertising and check yes or no on limit ad tracking?
Here....Ill post from my 6s before some loyal iTroll starts screaming I don't have an iPhone...
Hahahaha you make me laugh isheep itroll grow up
So adding sent from imore app means you are on your android oops i mean "iphone" lol
I actually found this entertaining.
And one other thing...(I'm on my tablet S2) I'm so used to asking Google Now semi-complicated questions and getting the correct answer that I try the same thing with Siri and it's one big fail. Anyone who thinks or says Siri is smarter or better than Google Now obviously doesn't ask anything other than "what's the weather like today?" Hell, Cortana does a better job at most things. Apple maps couldn't even find Ontario International Airport! It kept trying to send me in the way that's been blocked off for three years. Fired up Google maps and it talked me right in to rental returns, the right concourse, gate, etc.
I like my iPhone, but iOS is playing catch up with Google, and not doing a very good job at it. I'm a phone geek, and buy all brands, most models, and try all carriers. It's a hobby instead of a career...That means I don't mince words for fear of offending Google, Apple, or Microsoft.
Ahh yes, the old i own/buy everything defense, we know it well :)
Must of been sent out in the android lemmings monthly newsletter to use that. ;)
I doubt that you know it well, but okay. You might as well be in north Korea for all the propaganda you get filled with from this site alone
Then leave the site and everyone else alone
Why? I own two iphones myself. Just quit reading what I type.
Im sure you do, lol
I do. I'm using my 6s right now..,
And im using my graphing calculator to type this :)
But why come here to just argue, belittle and put the site down? Find another site you like better and move on.
What's an example of something you can ask Google that Siri won't understand. Siri is actually pretty impressive lately.
I was watching a movie and the guy quoted some lyrics from a song that I couldn't remember...so I said "hey siri, they said you were high class, but that was just a lie" That is Hound Dog, by Elvis....siri's response? I'm sorry, or Who, me? Google nailed it. Siri also says she can't navigate from home to work, or get me to the airport from the hotel I was in last week, but Google has no issue. Not to mention you have to wait 3-4 seconds after saying Hey Siri while waiting for it just to load. Google Now starts listening even as its loading. I have hundreds more, but those are the latest and greatest
In my testing thats the opposite, i have to pause after saying ok google, yet hey siri i just ask the question right away and she always gets it with no pause.
If you want impressive, try Google Now, now. That's what nobody in iLand understands...they see an improvement in Siri, some app, or read some bulls*t from Rene and think they're on top of the world, never mind Google and Microsoft are doing the same thing. Siri has gone from a C- to a C or C+ lately, but Google Now has gone from a C+ to a B+, easily. Cortana has come so far, so fast she'll probably be top dog in another year.
Everyone who talks crap about Google or Microsoft hasn't played with either of them in years. Everyone remembers their Android experience from 3 or 4 years ago, but hey, I had an iPhone 3GS and it sucked, too.
Easy android warrior LOL
I use Google Now, and I hate it! The only result I've ever gotten from using GN is a search page. Never once have I gotten an answer from GN.
This is the kinda thing you should take to the forums. I doubt the comic dude is going to care. FWIW, I only use Siri for iphone functions. Search (internet), maps, or anything else? It's a waste of time and I'd rather just disable it in settings. Hopefully it gets better.
You mentioned ads earlier. The News app served a few ads and that immediately went into a junk folder.
But did want to point out, that I know all this going in. I don't use Apple (or google) for Office type apps even email. That's MS's domain for me. Google has its uses for me as well...internet search, maps. Amazon with Kindle. Other third parties like Fantastical take over things like calendar. And that's the lure of the iphone. That you can use all these things with access to most ecosystems. You can accommodate just about any other smartphone user no matter what they use.
Apple is never going to be the best at everything. It's easy to pull out something and say Apple is terrible at it. I can do the same with the others too. Android may offer more customization and certain other features, but I still think you can do much more with an iphone. And that has never changed.
I only use Microsoft for my office related apps, also. I'm looking forward to the Lumia 950 and continuum. My original post was about all the lies people are told about the ads on Google. Even their CEO says they don't sell your info. They sell an aggregate or macro, and in analytic form, and I couldn't care less. "13 people in Colorado bought your app, and 6 were on a Samsung device".. I feel so violated....
QQQQQQQ go cry another place wtf you commenting on the comic section
What's up Rene, you using a new throwaway name?
He does that?
Man this was the worst one in a while. The last panel makes no sense at all..
Pour over coffee doesn't take any technology.
The user got tired of the electronic sass, so used a method to make her coffee that is technology free.
That's how I understand it anyways.
Lol thanks for explaining the bad joke I didn't get. :-)
But what is "pour over coffee"?
Seems to be the confusing line
A quick Google search pulled this up.
Place paper or metallic fiber filter into brew basket.
Use a small amount of hot water to pre-wet paper filters (to avoid paper taste).
Place brew basket above cup, carafe, or pitcher.
Measure and grind coffee.
Add ground coffee to filter.
Heat and add water.
Serve immediately and enjoy!"
So one makes coffee by pouring hot water over a course grind. Not too different from a French press.
Yeaaa that doesnt make this comic funny, or any sense still
Pour over coffee is the hot new way to drink coffee. I started doing it because buying the brew basket was cheaper than buying an automatic coffee maker. But especially if you grind the coffee fresh each time, it's really delicious! It's also a quick bit of mindful activity in the morning.
I didn't think it make that much sense either, but "creepyballs marketing" and "robot sass" made me laugh!
Creepyballs and robot sass! LOL
I read these every time they are posted hoping one day they will be amusing. That day is not today.
Siri is OK. She can set a timer, play a radio station, navigate, define, and get me some quick facts like how many ounces in a tablespoon. I keep her all the time.
Love it haha although Siri is as creepy as Google Now and Cortana and I have all three
I thought this one was kinda funny.
Is she single. Or what dating app I need to meet her.
I love the LCD Soundsystem reference.
People actually laugh at these?
Or you know, Mycroft. OpenSource, so no need for creepyballs ads, and no sass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1G0yEKuED8
Sorry Siri, I do like you but you aren't as smart as Alexa.
