On September 12, following hours of frantic armchair analysis of Apple’s announcements, the Internet once again devolved into a negative echo chamber of self-important dismissals and uninformed dissatisfaction. Tens, hundreds, and thousands of miles away from the only iPhone 5 units in the world, we busied our hands with masturbatory sentiments of boredom and unhappiness.

With the swathes of leaked images proven accurate, the rumor-mongering public suffered a collective gasp of accuracy. For the first time in years, our expectations had been set at precisely the correct point. Thus, rather than seeking to articulate what the iPhone 5 lacked, we instead vented our self-entitled boredom at the sight of one of the most thoughtfully engineered consumer electronics products of the past decade.

All the iPhone 5 critics i know in real life have never seen one in real life, let alone touching or using one. I find their “Sensible and Intelligent” proclamations and opinions amusing. 


NFC-Less iPhone 5 is so “Disappointing”

I remember the time when Apple hoped to sell 10 million units in the first year and they got laughed at by a bunch of moronic naysayers.

The reviews of the iPhone 5 are in and overall, the reviews are very postive. The reviewers are hailing the lightness and thinness of the device. They like the 4-inch form factor and they are corroborating Apple’s 2x performance/speed claims and the battery life claims.

It’s starting to sound like Apple’s acquisitions of P.A. Semi and Intrinsity weren’t just to glue off-the-shelf GPUs and CPUs together, paint an Audi’s name on top, and call it a day.
