  1. Apple is targeting September 9 for its next iPhone unveiling. Although invitations have yet to go out to press outlets, Re/code has learned that the company scheduled a "big media event" on that day.

    The formatting of the sarcasm tags is the highlight of your message :D.

    So no actually new features for this? How will the Apple PR people sell this as new and exciting now? Or will they just say this is what the iPhone should have been like two years ago?

    Supposedly there are battery improvements and a bunch of changes under the hood. I wouldn't judge till it is released.

    Bad advice, line up now or you will miss out. Who cares what it's going to be like, don't wait to find out, line up now damn it!

    Formatting not required for that one ;)

  8. Steve, you are horribly unprofessional.
    Not only are you "editorializing" on an otherwise impartial report (if you want to do that, drop the "Staff" marker that goes alongside your comments), but also your constant, borderline childish criticism of everything Apple does is just as fanatic as the Apple fans that line up for a new model that you are mentioning. Outside of the group of commenters that loves to come here as diss that company every chance they get, this behaviour (from both you and them) is highly annoying, not unlike Apple worshipping itself.

    I honestly like the close nit community between the techspot staff and its readers.

    But I never said anything negative about Apple here or the product. I merely poked fun at a well known phenomenon that occurs on launch day. Besides I don't professionaly review any Apple products or their competitors since I don't include PC parts as competition.

    It was a bit of fun to be had with guys like yRaz. Not people hiding behind guest accounts with zero sense of humor.

    JC713 even has an iPhone and he was able to take the comments for what they were, silly.

    And Thank you Steve, while I own an iPhone, you nailed it... that darn apple bug already is telling me to get in line and blow my money to upgrade now my 5S to 6.

  12. Why not call it the 60BS and spare us half a century of Apple boredom and consumers fawning over some "worthy" product.

    New toilet duck tomorrow - now that is something to get excited about.


    ;-)
     
  13. Because you dont know the new features, you assume NO new features

    Do you really care what it's going to be like?
    If it was the biggest pile of garbage iFans would still buy it.

    We need humor every once and a while like you said! Otherwise TS would be just another bland tech site xD.

    It's funny because that is true xD.

    And this is why boys and girls, we need this, :rolleyes: worked back into the new forum software!


    Steve, please lobby your boss for an extended set of emoticons, or at least ones we can read. Pretty please. There I've said it, "pretty please", without any shame. Or maybe just a little. ;)

    I believe it was my tongue-in-cheek comments that got that particular guest poster all hot and bothered. Not the article itself.

    Do like I do, cast a wider net and piss everybody off.......:rolleyes:
     
  20. It is going to one of the best phones out there. Why would anyone call it garbage. It may not be worth it but it will still be among the best.

    OK, the sentence, "why would anyone call it garbage" is interrogatory, not declarative. Hence, it should have ended with a question mark...Er, one of these, "?". In any event, I read the entire thread, and nobody actually did call the iPhone6, "garbage".

    This is as close as it got:
    Note the conditional conjunction, "if". at the beginning of the sentence.

    Sometimes it pays to use a bit of restraint & decorum.
