ALL HAIL SHAMELESS MATERIALISM!
Apple just announced it's unveiling the iPhone 5 NEXT WEEK!!!

Well, they kind of announced it -- Apple just sent out a bunch of invitations to media outlets to an event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco on September 12th. The invite doesn't explicitly say anything about the iPhone 5, but the graphic on the invite shows a giant "5" stylized as the date's shadow.

WHICH TOTALLY MEANS THE iPHONE 5!

According to completely unsubstantiated rumors on tech blogs, the iPhone 5 will have a new two-tone unibody design, a smaller dock connector, 4G LTE, and a larger 4-inch display using Sharp's IGZO technology.

And you'll only have to stand in line on a sweaty sidewalk for 6 weeks to get it.

They're all TOYS. And they've all been designed around sucking money from your bank account. Toys are designed to amuse you when you have no basic creative abilities.


Here's a head's-up. When you see something advertised on the TV that has a paragraph at the bottom of the screen that gives you 3 seconds to read...take a pass. I have a Radio Shack phone I bought new for $10. I pay California Lifeline $6.95 a month for phone service. I also have the phone ringer turned off. YMMV

Apple is nothing more than a social status for hipsters. They claim to be down with the 99% while facebooking on the 1%'s over priced toys. Apple execs are also hypocrites. These same people who once proudly quoted Picasso, "Good artists copy, great artists steal", are up in arms over look-a-like products? They claim "We patented it first", yeah... but you stole the idea from someone else and just beat them to the patent. Theft is still theft. You use to be proud of it. Not so cool when the shoe is on the other foot eh? Their only bitter because Samsung made a better version of the product.

APPLE SUCKS.
Apple industrial designer Shin Nishibori was directed to prepare a "Sony-like" design for an Apple phone and then had CAD drawings and a three-dimensional model prepared. Confirming the origin of the design, these internal Apple CAD drawings prepared at Mr. Nishibori's direction even had the "Sony" name prominently emblazoned on the phone design, as the below images from Apple's internal do***ents show:

Soon afterward, on March 8, 2006, Apple designer Richard Howarth reported that, in contrast to another internal design that was then under consideration, Mr. Nishibori's "Sony-style" design enabled "a much smaller-looking product with a much nicer shape to have next to your ear and in your pocket" and had greater "size and shape/comfort benefits." As Mr. Nishibori has confirmed in deposition testimony, this "Sony-style" design he prepared changed the course of the project that yielded the final iPhone design.
Apple Inc. lost a patent lawsuit in Japan as a Tokyo judge ruled that Samsung Electronics Co. smartphones and a tablet computer didn’t infringe on an Apple invention for synchronizing music and video data with servers.

Apple was ordered by Tokyo District Judge Tamotsu Shoji today to pay costs of the lawsuit after his verdict, the latest decision in a global dispute between the technology giants over patents used in mobile devices. Samsung shares rose, erasing earlier losses.

Aug. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. lost a patent lawsuit in Japan as a Tokyo judge ruled that Samsung Electronics Co. smartphones and a tablet computer didn’t infringe on an Apple invention for synchronizing music and video data with servers.
Apple was ordered by Tokyo District Judge Tamotsu Shoji today to pay costs of the lawsuit after his verdict, the latest decision in a global dispute between the technology giants over patents used in mobile devices. Samsung shares rose, erasing earlier losses.
“It’s hard to believe the products belong to the range of technologies of the claimant,” Shoji said in dismissing Apple’s case.

a court bid to ban sales of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy 10.1N tablet computer, a modified version of the original 10.1 model that was blocked in Germany.
The Dusseldorf appeals court judges backed a lower court ruling that had rejected the bid in February, the tribunal’s spokesman Klaus Schumacher said in an interview today. The court granted a separate Apple bid for a ban on Samsung’s Galaxy 7.7 tablet in all 27 member states of the European Union.

You know that with a smaller dock connector your apple accessories won't fit anymore? So not only will you be shelling out for the phone but also for new accessories. Apple sees their customers coming from way off.

Yes, this means iPhone 4s and just the 4th one will be in discount prices... hopefully. I hope you all abandon your current ones and aim at this new one... you lemmings.

Also, just encase you didn't know. Once you go and purchased and leave the store with it(or open the box it came with), Apple is already working and testing the new one. Your new iPhone 5 is the old classic 2012 one... HA!

Wait 4 months for the Iphone 6, then another 3 for the Iphone 7. Maybe then there will be enough of an improvement to justify an upgrade. The only reason Crapple makes money is all the fools that have to have the most current version. I'm simply amazed they can take the time to skip out of the welfare line.....
