    I predicted this as soon as the phone was announced. Yes, it's a Yahoo article and they don't always have the greatest writers in the world, but it hits the nail right on the head.

    Apple really struck out with the pricing on the 5C. It doesn't seem like a smart buy for people in countries where phones are usually not subsidized by contracts.

    Look out for major price drops around black Friday or xmas time.

    Well, they're gonna have to reduce the iPhone 5C price first.

    As soon as you send me a check of $4.92 million, my fee for writing my previous two.

    I may write one before the end of this year, am pretty tied up these days, haven't played my beautiful guitar for like 4 weeks.

    As far as my current avatar goes, I have the Apple Mafia coming to my place to kill me, but fear not, I have a big bazooka named WP8 to handle the entire gang.

    Hey, at least they're GOING to sell them somehow. It's not like they're the ones with thousands of Wii U consoles, Xbox Ones, PlayStation Vitas, 2DS devices on their hands that are probably going to end up in landfills. It's very easy to sell iOS.

    My Apple jokes came before him. Last year, I made steve with the 900. Then 920, now 1020. Meh, don't worry, his avatars are funny too. :)

    It's not about hate. It's about Apple's holier than thou attitude towards consumers. I see it as more "chickens coming home to roost". Or in plain English, "karma's a beeyotch".

    Then why can't we just debate the issue instead of the personal attacks on Tim Cook? It's really sad for me too watch this forum turn into a Apple forum with the hate/personal attacks against the other side for no good reason than to justify their OS choice. It just seems silly to act this way.

    In order to be the best you have to beat the best. It's a jealousy thing.

    Define "best". What is iOS the best at? Marketing maybe, they are the undisputed champs in that area but there isn't one hardware or software related item that they are the best at. There's a reason their marketshare has slipped worldwide and a bigger reason which is the point of the article in this thread: stagnation. They have been surpassed in every area they thought they were dominant in. Beginning with Antenna-gate, the Maps disaster and the Siri glitches, Apple is showing chinks in their armor and don't have the cojones to admit errors. Man up and face the music, humans are a forgiving species.

    Although I don't like your avatar (at all) I like your posts, does this make me weird?
    Who cares.

    Actually, their GPU is unquestionably the best and the chipset is arguably so.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on both counts as I'm sure you know what you're talking about and I'm not the type to say "prove it". But honestly, how many real-world consumers know or care? Do you still think I'm pretty?

    What's so odd about a clown who likes to eat children?

    Seriously, the avatar took a life of its own about a year or two ago when some mental case attacked a man here in Miami and literally chewed his face off. I used that avatar on Facebook and I got all kinds of grief from my wife and friends so I just left it here on Mobile Nations. It's a Miami thing, we're twisted that way.

    I agree, I strongly dislike iPhones but I acknowledge their selling points. I wish we could get a GPU half that powerful. I tried a 5s for two weeks and came running back to Windows Phone. Also, Tim Curry is always pretty.
