As usual I agree with Holly. Apple products may be spiffy and trendy....but they are TOO DARN EXPENSIVE.

Damn straight! Their prices are just too damn expensive and not well worth it. There is nothing truly new in the 4S that the 4 couldn't do. Other than Siri I guess... The problem is, Americans are too obsessed with the iPhone. That money could be used for more useful things like food and clothes. The economy sucks, and we need to be more froogle about our shopping. Those Europeans are pretty darn smart. Especially in Germany.

+1 to the Germans being smart.

The best engineering comes out of Germany.

They make the best cars, (love my V12 BMW), best guns (can't seem to buy enough Sig or HK weapons) and are great business men.

Love them Germans.....

Yes, they are brilliant people. They are also very efficient when it comes to their products. I do like the German culture. I still love the Russian culture. Not for their cars or guns... I just like their social ways. Drink with friends and family, everyone is happy. Such a simple life. Of course, not all Russians and Germans are the same, but they have a damn good culture. I will give them that. :o)

Yep, they are the best. Perfect as it gets.

In 5 years ish (+ or - 2 years) my goal is to work with the Germans in designing, and testing weapons. (rifles and pistols)

If my business takes off alike I hope, I should have enough capitol.......

MB or GB?

Not everybody is a billionaire like Madoff. The locked iPhone 4S 64GB model runs for $400 on Verizon with a 2 year contract. Can you imagine buying the unlocked version of that phone for $850? Yeah, totally not worth spending like an idiot.

Don't forget the iPhone runs under that slow, crappy 3G connection of yours. Dual Core? Man, that sounds old school. I would rather get a quadcore tablet any day for $500. Better antenna? Man... What a crappy antenna the original one had. Am I right? You probably paid a premium for that one too. Yeah, spend all of your money on a slow, yet outdated cellphone. Don't you know that bigger is better? Well, you just flushed your money down the iToilet, and nobody cares. Ha! 

Goodluck staying with the same crappy cellphone for 2 years. Of course, you could still buy the iPhone 5 next year for more than $800 out of contract.

"Not everybody is a billionaire like Madoff."

Bernie Madoff is in jail. He also has nothing to do with how expensive iPhones are.

When this is how you open an argument, it's a little hard to take the rest of what you say seriously.

Well the image in Europe is... If you own an iPhone, you are rich. In America, a rich person is a person who has a yearly sallary worth over one billion dollars. You know, the top 1% that control 53% of the world's money. This is how iPhones are advertised in Europe. Especially in Russia. I just think people who are willing to pay $850 for an iPhone locked to a slow 3G connection is a fool. The specs inside are already outdated. The only thing it has going for itself is the retina display.

Go enjoy your Ballmer and Sergey.  Not an original thought there, ever.  And I don't need luck -- Good planning and a FRUGAL nature does not equate with being an anti-fanboy.

 

Really, some of you folks just sound like a bunch of effing retards with this hate.

Mac Life dude... Mac Life.

Oh look, it's Holly on yet another irrational hate-everything-about-Apple-for-no-reason-at-all tyrade. You do know you're talking about spending money on things like food and clothing over a gadget on a tech enthusiast website, right? I know it's just a sad attempt to sound reasonable for once, but I'm just saying...

You know you are blabbering about iProdu¢ts on a PC site. You didn't expect for anyone to agree with your love for Ma¢s now didn't you? There is always MacLife for all your Apple love, and then some. Just saying...
