Apple is kinda like a modern cult, so I guess it makes sense. The fact that people keep buying that overpriced junk that gets more fragile each release in order to keep up with the trends, is saddening.

Right, i am sure other people also feel they have legitimate reasons for being sensitive or protective of a group of people or movement. You seem to be asking for a level of respect for your feelings of white people being picked on that you aren't willing to reciprocate to others. its easy to say we shouldn't be so sensitive about things until it starts hitting close to home

Is it suppose to be humorous? I cannot see why this would be humorous, but that is just my sense of humor.



Sadly, Apple logo is actually in its rightful place

I am certain you may have seen that there were not many people standing outside for an iPhone X (10).
I ordered one for my girlfriend, seeing as she's more comfortable with iOS than Android (I have tried a Samsung Note 8 with her and she liked it but felt that it wasn't as intuitive as iOS).
In the end, I don't necessarily believe it's about "worship" as much as it is about "what works for them".
If something has worked for a person for a decade, why would they shift from what they're familiar with?
Cost?
That isn't always the greatest demotivator.


The image itself doesn't bother me at all.
I'm in the mindset that most (if not all, including myself) humans are simply too foolish to come to a point where they accept that their perspective is not the only one that exists.
There will always be a counter-measure to the original line of thought.
Neutrality does not happen because people are too emotionally invested in their opinions.
Ranges from religion to politics to consumerism to economics.
Humans are simply too stupid to comprehend things on a logical, objective, level.
We simply haven't the means to be fully objective as long as we're raised to focus on our reality being of the most importance.

This would be more impressive if it weren't isolated to metropolitan areas.
In the past, I recall having issues ordering iPhones for my significant other (not just the one I'm currently with but previous ones as well).
The iPhone X was probably the easiest device I ordered.
My local T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon stores all had 10-40 in stock.
It appears that Apple is quickly falling from its throne of cultism, though.

More and more people are realizing that the vast majority of mobile phones are locked into a realm of perpetual stasis.
Hardware innovation is few and far between, software innovation is pretty much stale too.

It just goes to show how regional differences make for significant consumer differences too.
Even though I live in an upscale area where the median income is six figures, most of my neighbors are focused on Samsung these days.
Whereas in a metropolitan area, the iPhone X was the "must-have" device.

$1000 price tag is probably the reason why. Bestbuy is selling it for $1100. It's a good business tactic imo even though they will not get any money from me. I'm fine with my Nexus 6 (2014). I don't know if there are other phones of the same size. I like the size of Nexus 6 with front facing speakers.

a new version every year + stop making the old model+ stop support update after 2 year+ price increase for some new techs =

They get away with anything. Even if it's shitposting about asking little girls for opinions on how to wear bras. Honestly, this shouldn't be all too surprising considering how lack-luster CR members behave when posting material. It's almost just for attention. Internet users using shitposting for attention? Now, that's a first.. or a 1000th.

not really, however it's missing a few things, but I have to admit it's probably going to tick off someone that's for sure. sort of a disappointment that there are folks in society who are bent on causing violence and rage, whereas instead of trying to calm the stormy seas they are only making them harsher.

All i know is, "it's okay to be white" :P
Iam not sure why so many white people disagree but yeah?

I was actually considering getting the latest iphone. But that was before i realised the price and that it isn't even much better than some of the previous models (i have an i5s).
Only was thinking about an upgrade to have a better phone for my next job and with more storage space. Cant say that i am overly for or against Apple. I tunes is bullshit though and music is more expensive than it should be in my country.

Yep. i was drinking the other day making threads. Probably wont bother doing so for a while. They usually just get closed. But yeah, nothing really left to say.

Well, it's certainly a bait thread, and is closed.
