They always come out of "new" ways of doing stuff then iterate upon it with or without jobs.

Tim Cook and his band of merry idiots are driving Apple into the grave Steve Jobs pulled them out of. Apple is getting more and more detached.

Look at the Mac Pro. The arrogance and total delusion that takes to build the CUBE again, but this time round. And call it a "Pro" machine.

Same with the iPhone. 3 years ago it was a different game. Now Samsung has a phone for every person. People want choice and apple has no choice. Incremental updates, getting the next numbered processor and giving you a couple of features that are basic features on other phones isn't going to work much longer.

Tim Cook and his team need to all go away. Look at the ios 7 icons. There is no design. No continuity and all copied from Google and Yahoo apps and jailbreak apps.

I don't think they're complaining about the plastic. I think they're complaining about the cheap FEEL of the phone.

The HTC Butterfly is also plastic but it feels very premium.

Every year when a new iPhone comes out, people predict that it is over for Apple and that nobody will buy that crap. Better but Galaxy S (whatever it was that year), but every year the iPhone outsells the iPhone from the year before.

Cycle repeats again this year. Rumors are out. People predict the demise of apple and how crap the new iPhone is. Same as the last one.

Watch how this one and the iPhone 5s outsell the iPhone 5.

Of course not, Mr Duel. We already have our iPhone 5.

But this will be great phone for you. I'll bet you will be first in the morning to buy this little cutie.

Of course if your boss at Microsoft allows you to replace your useless Lumia with mostly hated Apple product.
