Apple Has Better Products Than Samsung

Chancho19

Apple's entire system runs 5 times smoother than Samsung's Let me start with a question: Do you know who invented the first touchscreen smartphone? The answer is apple. Do you know who, in a court case, admitted to copying Apple's design? The answer is SAMSUNG. I don't ever want to hear that "Apple has copied Samsung." It is a lie. Apple's operating system runs the smoothest out of any smartphone device. Apple invented the Touch ID which gives your whole device an extra layer of se...

First and foremost, I'd like to congratulate bsh1 on making it this far in the tournament. Much as he has achieved this before, and even won before, I think it's a massive achievement with all of the fantastic competition we've had. Second, I am again honored to be debating a venerated veteran of the site. I have a lot of respect for bsh1 and his debating prowess, something I know he'll bring in spades to this debate. I hope I am up to the challenge, but most importantly, no matter how this ends...

State Universities should provide no cost undergraduate education for qualifying interested applicants who meet ACT, SAT standards and have at least a 3.25 GPA . It is mandatory, once in college, to have and maintain a 3.2 GPA average and be a US citizen to continue receiving no cost education. (Not free, no cost education). To stop immigrants from coming to America just to get a no cost education we can encourage them to get no cost education, in exchange of them becoming an US citizen and join...

Abortion is Morally okay

To my opponent: Please keep this respectful and calm. I don't want to offend anyone, my goal is to understand your position more thoroughly...that said, let's go. My position on abortion is that it is morally wrong. I'd like to start by addressing a few common arguments made by pro-choicers. 1. We're pro-choice, not pro-death. Basically, we're in favor of everyone deciding for themselves rather than there being a strict definition of what you can and can't do. a) I'm not saying you ha...

School Dress Codes are sexist and Add to Rape Culture

emmaw1482
funnycn

My group and I believe that School Dress Codes are targeting the female population and are unfair. School"s are beginning to focus on how the students dress rather than their education. For example, pulling a female out of class until she can change and taking her away from the education. Many cases have been reported of females being pulled out of class for minor infractions like straps being visible, or more than 3 inches of the thigh showing. Instead of letting the student know they're brea...

Mikal

Thank you to Mikal for wanting to debate me. A troll debate has been needed between us for a long time now. This is the moment of glory. -First round will be acceptance, even though there's an understood acceptance. -Second round will be for opening arguments only (no rebuttals) -Third round will be for rebuttals only (new arguments against old arguments are fine, but no new supporting arguments for your side). -Fourth round is for final rebuttals (no new arguments at all, but expansion of...

Cyberbullying that is held outside of school should be punished by the school.

Egocentric

Cyberbullying that is occurs off campus should not be punished by the school. According to Merriam-Webster, cyberbullying is the electronic posting of mean-spirited messages about a person. Schools are exceeding their authority and violating the student"s freedom of speech by disciplining the student for cyberbullying. The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. Unless the problem is brought onto campus, the school cannot interfer...
