  1. The latest from the perpetual motion machine that is the Apple rumor mill suggests Cupertino is preparing not one, but three new iPhone models for 2013. One phone is even being called the iPhone Math, which we can only hope...

    Iphone math... that's a curious name for a smartphone... I'm starting to imagine the apple TV Ad: "New iphone Math!... do the math, (get an android)" LOL!
     
  4. Apple is over priced close sourced junk.
    Why do people purchase their product again?

    I thought apple will be going 64gb iphone for the elite (8-12mp camera), 32gb for the mainstream (8mp camera), and 16gb for the entry level (5mp camera).

    no confusion regarding nomenclature, all will be iphone 5s.
     
  6. I have a bad feeling about this "iPhone Math" rumour that apple will somehow have managed to patent the concept of having a calculator app on a touch-screen phone...

    Hmmm. Whatever happened to their ' Release one highly overrated model & watch suckers grovel at our feet to pay our highly over inflated price' attitude.
    Having said that, we all know a leopard never changes it's spots so these new phones will probably not be worth the box they're shipped in.

    What, did some Apple exec happen to notice all the variety in the toothpaste isle and say 'Hey, there's something for everyone, we should do that!'

    And wait until they start adding the extra $100 to each model for 16GB of storage. We'll have cross-over pricing between the models.

    A bigger iphone?! But the current iPhone is a 'dazzling display of common sense!'

  9. I see way too many people around campus with an iPad AND an iPad mini. Won't be the least bit surprised to see people with 3 iPhones this year (keep in mind that most of these people can't afford lunch).

    Thats too funny, next Apple will try to patent using your thumb. I'm at a loss for words now because of have ridiculously bad that add is. Are people so stupid they don't realize all phones are that size for a reason? Or do the Apple sheeple look at that and go "Oh how Innovative" I think its a dazzling display of pure bullshit, thats what I think. Should have fine print stating not for people with small hands...

  11. I've heard this rumor before... and what came out last time?
    iPhone 5
    iPhone4s (16g I believe)
    iPhone4 (for free under 2 year contract)
    There, 3 phones!!!

    And the year before that...
    iPhone4s
    iPhone4
    iPhone3Gs

    Hmmm...I wonder what the next 'three' are going to be...
