Can we get a few of us to go in and wait beside the pick n mix in M&S in town tomorrow, the first person who goes over and fill a bag full of sweets we start cheering them furiously, take a load of photos etc... we’d most likely be escorted off the premises, taken away in a van, sat in front of a state psychologist, have our driving license confiscated and possibly our freedom too.... ITS A FÛCKING PHONE ! TWATS !

Steve Jobs has actually built a cult following comprised of people with similar beliefs and value systems. That's not all Apple phone owners btw just the radical Apple fanboys. It really is a bizarre phenomena.

No offence but you might want to seek some help if you get overly excited over the release of a new phone.

If anything that market moves far faster than the Apple phone ecosystem so more "new" phones with more new "features" are produced, more rapidly, by more companies. All of which would sell their own mothers to get the kind of blindly loyal customer base Apple has fostered.

I've had two since 2014. One bought mid 2014 and one bought late 2017. Phone i had before that was from 2008 (a Nokia)

We should all care that people priorities seem to be askew. The fawning over material possessions is not good for society.

Tesla has a similar following for some reason. The guy is some sort of soothsayer or something.
Hasn't invented anything,just used existing or old technology in a new application.

My dream is to someday be that person and when I got outside in front of all the media take a lump hammer out of my pocket and smash the phone to pieces, you would never have to buy a pint again.
