    Default Highlighting issue

    Every time I go to highlight words or a phrase, the second I highlight the first letter, it will immediately jump to the very bottom of the page. And since it does that, it's impossible to highlight only certain text, as double clicking will only highlight one word, or the whole passage. It's not my computer either. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I do not have this issue, I can highlight any word without jumping to the next word or to the bottom of the text on the page.

    Well, it didn't do it this time?? I was able to bold your text without it jumping down. That's the first time in months lol. I guess the problem is fixed?

    I didn't think it was because it wouldn't do it on any other site, just this one. But it seems to be working now.

    you on a lap top? or desktop? if a lappy, plug a real mouse in, see if that helps if it happens again.

    Do you at least watch what android phones have for features? That way you'd know what features you might get in a couple of years.

    True story.
    The sad thing is 99% of the things that people find innovating about Apple products Apple had no hand in actually making it. Apple is what we in the tech industry like to call patent whores. They buy out all these tiny companies and their patents and use said companies creations to make their products then pass it off as something they developed. Siri is a prime example of this.

    ^^^^^^^

    My journey: I used to want an iPod touch in the worse way as a kid, but I looked at the prices and was like "yeah, can't afford a 32GB" - I ended up getting a Droid 3 for free that had a bushed screen, used that for a summer and realized that it did everything an iPod did...., but better, and expandable storage, so, then got a Droid X with a bad ESN for $50, then another, and another, lol. This lead to my smartphone hobby and realizing just how freaking awesome Android is, and what a crappy company Apple is. Finally here a month or so ago I got an LG G4, big improvement for my X, lol, and I only paid $300 with like five cases, two spare batteries w/chargers, Qi wireless charging back, leather back, absolutely fabulously camera and screen...., and no contract. (Swappa is like the best thing since sliced bread)

    I don't understand why people in 'Murica need an iPhone so bad*, all they do is text, Facebook, and Instagram pictures...., it's like ridiculous to pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars to do that. You can get a very solid Android phone unlocked for $300, and if you want to go to the higher price-bracket you can have choices of material, size, design, expandable storage, some still have removable batteries. And if you're on AT&T (or a MMVO like Cricket, or ST using AT&T's GSM network) you can use unlocked phones which gives even MORE choice. I like choice, and just being able to pick color, storage, and between two sizes...., heck no.

    What does make an iPhone useful is the seamless (most of the time) integration with Mac OS, like with iMessages and syncing things over. That's nice, and arguably the 3rd party versions for Android don't do it as well. But, I'll never own a Mac running Mac OS, so I don't need to worry about that, haha. And that integration is not enough to make me ever move, plus for the hardware iPhones cost way, way too much. Still using freaking 720p and 1080p on the plus, still using an 8MP camera until the 6S came out... at least they only need dual-core processors and 2GB of RAM because you can't multitask on an iPhone... cool too how Google Wallet had NFC payments years and years before Apple "invented" yet another glorious tech thing. Still waiting for Apple to invent a smartphone stylus, that'll be fun.

    *This is probably due to the whole contract thing we had/have over here that says you pay $0-$200 for a phone (lol), when in reality you pay for it over the course of your two year contract. In Europe and other places they don't have contracts and people see really how much these things cost, maybe that explains how Italy manages to have a higher percentage of Windows phones than iPhones...., that really cracks me up.
