Apple weeps every time you give it hundreds of dollars and then destroy the thing you bought.

/weeps all the way to the bank.

Awesome. I love when the battery vents in a blast of flames.

It breaks. There may be sparks or fire. Just like the last couple dozen times someone microwaved an iPhone, or shot an iPad or threw an iPod out of a moving vehicle.

Why do people always feel the need to film themselves destroying the latest Apple product? Abusing a technological device destroys it. There, I've said it. Can we now get on as a society now?

I hate when people do this kind of shiat. I hate it not because I care one wit about Apple, but because it is just a damn waste of both a perfectly good phone and a microwave.

I don't get it. Apple is still making them. They will make as many as they can, effectively infinite supply given that they can make more than there are buyers for them. By the laws of supply and demand, that means that they have no value.

Or, in simpler terms: Crunch all you want, they'll make more.

Why is it I hear tons of people screaming on facebook and here about how so many people are brainwashed apple zealots but I actually see hardly anyone really saying much about how much the like apple like they pretend. It seems to me the anti-apple zealotry is the bigger congregation.

Funny one guy was trying to explain to me how "maps" was the only navigation app on the iPhone because Apple doesn't allow others to compete. He must of been sad when I explained to him there are actually thousands of navigation apps.

It's always weird being mistaken for a wild-eyed fanboy just because I own a product. When the iPhone 5 was coming out, I had this conversation with a co-worker:

"So, are you standing in line to get the new iPhone 5?"
"Uh...no, I have the 3GS and it works just fine."
"You do? I thought you had the latest and greatest all the time."
"Well...this does everything I want it to do, it's a fun toy on the bus, and as long as the 3GS network is still standing, I'm good."
"So you're not standing in line to get the new iPhone?"
"I don't really need a new iPhone."
"...Huh."

You could tell the whole exchange bewildered him. Obviously "owner of Apple product" = "standing in the rain for two days waiting for the release of the latest hot new toy." He didn't seem particularly disabused of the notion, either.

One Reddit user's reaction? 'This guy distresses every bone in my body. Embodies everything that's wrong with the world right now.'


And that's why Reddit's motto is: "I am a Straight, White, Middle-class Male, and the entire world is keeping me down."

I don't know about iPhones, but my iPod Shuffle came with explicit instructions NOT to put it in the microwave. Seriously.
 
2012-09-23 04:19:25 PM  
BUT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII MICROWAVES BETTER WHY WOULD YOU WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS THING

This. Have any of you iHaters ever had an independent thought, or do you just parrot whatever Samsung puts one?

I'm kinda known as the Mac guy at work, and several people had similar conversations with me. The funny thing is the same people who chide me being a Mac guy were the ones showing me their brand new iPhone 5s Friday morning. One of them even sold their 4S online, broke their contract, was without a phone for 2 weeks, and stood on line for hours to get the 5. Then, since the store was out of 16 and 32 gig models, bought the 64 gig. In white. Which he didn't want.

But I'm the farking Apple nut..

*rolls eyes*

He said "he hardly sees any," not "there are literally zero." Good job on finding one.

Look at all the posts from iFanbois denying that this bothers them while denying even more that this bothers them.

I don't see anyone actually cheering this destruction on ... just a whole lot of butt-hurt combined with denial of hurt butts.
 
2012-09-23 07:28:45 PM  
Based on what is supposedly going on at the Foxconn right now, you may be able to get your iPhone 5 factory roasted for your convenience.

You post constantly in these threads with the same lines. If your intention wasn't to get noticed for it, you're doing a bad job.
