playstation did CERTAIN things very well, but that was that..
that was not the case for a Pentium III PC

Just saw a blog about the scratches on the Iphone 5 and have heard that Foxconn deliberately sent the iphone 5 out even when it had faults and they said 10% of the stock had faults. (see the GSMarena blog). cheap and cheerful Iphone 5.

For a device that's $650, $750, and $850 this is unacceptable. Shame on you people (especially non-stockholders) to defend such poor craftmanship.

If you want to play games and listen to music get a game console and a iPod!!
