The Top 50 Mobile Phones According to FOCUS Online News in Germany: It is Easy to See Why Apple is Suing Samsung and HTC to Keep Competing Mobile Phones and Tablets Off American Retail Shelves and Out of Consumers' Hands

These are the top 50 mobile phones viz. smartphones in the world according to a ranking of mobile phones just published by the widely read German FOCUS magazine online.

The rankings of course are based on factual examinations and tests conducted with German thoroughness (see this page -- one of seven - about the top-ranked Samsung Gaxay SIII). Detailed specifications and test results are available for every one of these mobile phones at FOCUS online pages.

FOCUS published the mobile phone rankings as of June 23, 2012, and it is easy to see why Apple has been suing Samsung and HTC in the USA to keep the better phones of those competitors off American retail shelves and out of consumers' hands so that buyers are forced to settle for lower-ranked Apple products, thinking they have no better alternatives -- which are in fact available elsewhere throughout the world:

Capitalist Expectations and Evidence-Based Economic Reality: Econ 101 Macroeconomics Performing Spectacularly Writes Paul Krugman at The Conscience of a Liberal

In Economics, Good and Bad at Paul Krugman's blog, The Conscience of a Liberal, at the New York Times, Krugman points out that Econ 101 Macroeconomics has been performing spectacularly in the current economic situation:
"Basic IS-LM macro ... said that under these conditions printing lots of money would not be inflationary, and that cutting government spending sharply would cause the economy to shrink. All of this has come true."
Furthermore and more importantly for people's views of boilerplate macroeconomics, Krugman writes that:
"The type of macroeconomics Portes and I do offends conservative notions of how things are supposed to work in a capitalist society, so they reject the theory no matter how well it performs, and throw their support behind other views and other people no matter how badly they get it wrong."
Also that is correct.

The question for this writer is
how do we get people away from their unproven
"beliefs" and "superstitions"
and get them to look at "evidence-based"  
reality
-- i.e. what is actually happening
and what the facts actually tell us

rather than what is supposed to happen
(according to some political, social, legal, economic or religious dogma)

or rather than what people want to happen
(according to their own personal predilections and biases,
most of which they have learned from their parents
and which they pass on to their children,
regardless of the reality-basis for the things passed on).

How do we do that?
How do we get people to make that change?
