Say – is that an iPhone 7 in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?



While perusing a few news feeds I came across the following, “New iPhone 7 Leak Will Anger Everyone“.

I had to stop and do a double take! According to the article iPhonians will be upset with the “huge camera bulge“. It would appear that Apple did not innovate the ‘outie’, they simply perfected it. In addition, there will be no earphone jack forcing them to fork over additional money to buy earphones outfitted with a lightning adapter plug.

Personally, if I were an iPhonian I would be more upset about Apple’s continued abuse of workers in China – conditions that are so bad they require suicide nets around the living quarters.

I would be upset that if a contact asked me to send them a picture I could not easily attach the picture to my email reply.

I would be upset that I overpaid for technology that is 2 – 3 years old.

I would be upset that I’m crippled by their ecosystem (walled-off garden) – NFC is just one example.

I might also be upset that the most profitable corporation in history is constantly thinking up ways to suck more money out of my wallet.

I would be upset that every iteration of iOS or MacOS that is rolled out is flawed, may brick iPhones and will require 3 or 4 updates to get it right.

I might be upset that the company aids and abets terrorists like Facebook.

I would be upset that they care so little about my privacy and security because the iPhone is so easily hacked.


Wow, I don’t even own an iPhone and I’m upset…….

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the walled garden that is Apple, well said and well written sir!
    I agree on all counts.

    Thank you BlackBerry for not clearing your inventory of last year models by crippling your upcoming model.
    Removing the 3.5 mini jack is a breath of fresh air to their inventory of 6/+ and 6S/+ that 5SE can’t do alone.
    While I’m writing this Hotel California by the EAGLES is playing in my head, anyone care to jam the ending solos with me.

    Huge camera bulge means better camera iBitches.

    A more pressing issue for Apple is finding a next gen os for iPhone. It’s right under their noses. License a version of BB10. Its micro-kernel design is better for iPhone’s app centric flock. locco_smiley_44

      Apple arrogantly won’t acknowledge BB10 superiority.
      They saw the light at the end of their tunnel and it’s BB10 but THEY JUST CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!
