    No one supports apple except with iphones. no one buys macs, ipods are basically dead, ipads are useless and only sold to old people, what else do they have?

    I love it when people speak of EveryOne when they are actually speaking only for themselves. I don't like Apple products, I hate their cult-like fan base.

    It is ironic that Apple have just announced a 8Gb 5C when my daughter was moaning about lack of space on her 16Gb 5C she has only had for a couple months.

    This is exactly why Apple doesn't work with scientists or engineers to provide high end equipment. They don't listen to what the consumer needs, they just try to adjust prices and advertisements to sell more.

    I thought the poster had used a rude Anglo Saxon word but the word was idi0t$. Is that word politically incorrect?
