I just had to post this and say LOL @ Silencer. Another brainwashed "R" without any common sense. This isn't 1990's anymore.. times change buddy. Only republicans can start a political war on a tech forum.

How do you know that you aren't yourself just as "brainwashed" as you accuse him of being?

I think the video is staged, I doubt people are so stupid.

Pardon my French, but fuck Apple. I really hope BB 10 turns out well. My galaxy note is great, but typing on it pisses me off big time. I still carry my torch around and switch sim cards when I have to type a lot. I've tried android devices with keyboards, and it really just doesn't match what I get with my torch. My only other choice is iPhone, and I would go back to my old crazr before I bought an iPhone.

Obvious troll bait article was obvious...

These same people probably drive and vote as ignorantly.

The important question is how many people looked at it and said, "are you sure this isn't a Samsung?"

I wish I could upvote this.

It gets worse... It wasn't even an iPhone 4S... It was only a 4... Notice the line on the top of the phone.

I finally figured out what the i in iphone means...idiot.

Finally! Someone with enough intestinal fortitude to make fun of the blind legion of apple fan boys.
Come on MPC, you write like you feel sorry for apple...I expect better of you. Life is tough; it's tougher if you're stupid.

this is slightly funny. but you know that out of maybe 50-75 people, they chose the 5 idiots to show on tape and cut the rest. selective editing = comedy value but no truth value.

When Jimmy Kimmel of all people makes you look stupid, you might as well just kill yourself.

What else would you expect from i-Kiddies. Great video of i-Kiddie idiots.

I have a Droid X2 and I am pretty sure if you gave me Droid X2 and told me it was an X3, I would be able to tell it was the same phone. Even comparing the X1 and X2 side by side I saw an immediate difference in screen and button layout.

My point is-I think I would know if I were being fooled and I don't have an iPhone.

I notice the guy who said it was lighter had his current iPhone in a case. I wonder how many people buy a new iPhone, chuck it straight in a case and never take it out. They probably never really get to see what the iphone actually looks and feels like.

there is also the fact that the iphone 5 is much faster than a used 4s...new 4s, not so much.

after a few ios "upgrades" and a bunch of apps, the current iphone seems slow, and that means its time for a new one!

Even if I realize it was the old phone, I would play along for my 5 seconds of fame =P

This is perfect example of why apple must make their products TOO SIMPLE to use.

Hey, i posted this link from Youtube on your iPhone 5 debut article in the comment section. All well, im glad you posted it. Its awesome.

Whats the best of the whole clip are the ones holding their iphone and looking at the same phone and comparing it.

avatar

wolfing

it would be interesting to know the actual percentages. Obviously they only showed the ones that failed, but I'm sure at least a good 50% were fooled.

"Imagine, if you will, a world in which blind loyalty trumps common sense and critical thinking, where the power of marketing and the corporate hype machine are so strong that reasonably intelligent consumers are reduced to social status seeking nitwits on a late night television talk show"

exactly why obama was elected pure hype zero substance

Your first paragraph describes exactly the type of fool that would vote for Mitt Romney. Ironic? No, I would describe you as tragic.

Seriously, feck off with your political bullshit! No one really cares.

Christ almighty, you Americans seem to be obsessed with dragging politics in to EVERY GODDAMN THING!

NO ONE CARES BUT YOU!

That's not Caboose! It's O'Malley!

We all know Caboose never got that aggitated unless it was really O'Malley!

Where's Tex?.....

Well excuse us for not ignoring the fact that a huge amount of political power is up for grabs for the first time in four years.

And the way things are headed, when American imperial power comes bombing/spying through your door, you can tell them to "feck off". Let me know how that goes for you.

avatar

Caboose

Care to explain your political position and opinions have ANYTHING to do with this article? I'm trying to find the link, but your hatred for whoever is in office, and whatever political party you don't subscribe to isn't in power, but I just can't find that link. It's got to be somewhere right? I mean, if it wasn't, you wouldn't be bringing up this drivel.

avatar

praetor_alpha

My political position is not important here. I was trying to make a point that this is one of the most important times to care about American politics.

avatar

Caboose

And you felt that an article about how gullible iDevice users are, was the best place to make your political statement? That's as bad as the spammers who think we're going to click their infected spam links.

avatar

praetor_alpha

And you were irritated enough to reply to someone having "obama" in their username criticizing Obama, in an article criticizing Apple iusers. Political speech is like bad grammar: it's everywhere and only going to get worse.

avatar

I'm sure there were people that were interviewed that said "that's not an iPhone 5". They of course would have ruined the joke. I'm sure a good 20% of the people interviewed were fooled. It's always 20%, because 20% of people are f'n crazy.
This is far more depressing to me:
http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/09/16/iphone-5-customers-in-the-big-apple-camp-out-8-days-early/

People are camping out for the iPhone 5 8 days before it releases (mostly for publicity, but still...). It's a sad society we live in when people camp out for a freakin phone and we can't even get Citizens United overturned.

+1. Throw out citizens united. then punch an apple doosher in the jajoonum.

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows they only picked out the iTards to show.

Still pretty funny though...

LOL.. Just goes to show you Apple users are not the brightest bunch.. and must be blinded by their undeserved loyalty / dedication to apple-crap.

avatar

I wonder if anyone looked at the back of the iPhone.

Even if they had, they wouldn't have seen it... Your mind sees what you want it to see. Especially when you voluntarily suspend critical thinking.
