Lines formed outside Apple stores across the world on Friday as fans flocked to buy the new iPhone X, signaling stronger demand for the 10th anniversary version of the premium smartphone than the last two iterations. ...

I wonder how many of them will complain within three days of the purchase that they have no money.

Everyone buying the iPhone X is a moron.

iPhone has pretty much remained the same phone since the 6. Paying $1k for a couple extra features is stupid. So is the iPhone lease program.

Basically. Ever since Steve Jobs died and Tim Cook took over, the company has grown stagnant.

Apple will soon be replaced by Google.

I have a 99 dollar flip phone that I paid 1.08 for that works great.

I was reading this and realized the type of pretentious douche who would spend $1000 on a phone.

Shack,
You have to check out liveleak...I've seen a ton of videos where people get assaulted and killed over shoes, phones, and for no reason at all.
On a side note, Brazil and Russia are scary places. A ton of the best non cell/sneaker violent and crazy videos come from there.

The comments in general are disturbing and sometimes funny.

Chair.

I enjoy watching live leak and similar sites. Russia and Brazil are the craziest indeed. The Russian ones have the best beat downs and the Brazilian ones have some crazy car/motorcycle robberies.

Here are some gems:

"It features a large screen in a usable form factor."
- Except that notch and the low screen:body ratio for a modern flagship phone.

"It's the best consumer augmented reality platform out there, and it's only going to get better."
- That's like being the best surfer in Wisconsin.

What people do with their own money is their business and they can spend it as they wish.

That's just a small sample of what's "featured" on liveleak. They definitely have channels for that though. They only feature the crazier or brazen violent stuff. They feature a lot of funny and g rated vids too.

I'm not good with gore so I don't watch any of that. No skateboarder broken legs for me.

I don't mind watching chicks fight, and those happen every once in a while.
