Remember when Apple used to make innovative products that worked really well rather than overpriced, overhyped crap?
As Edith and Archie Bunker once sang: "Those were the days!" - Emphasis on WERE.
Apple just announced its next generation of frustratingly expensive and feature-lacking iPhones, and one of them is not only the most expensive iPhone yet, it's also the size of a Buick.
The two new models are called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max - unofficially dubbed "Nah, I'll just stick with what I already have or switch to the Samsung Galaxy, thank you."
According to The Verge:
"They look almost identical to their predecessor, but there are two immediate differences: for one, they’re both available in gold."
Well, there's an exciting and crucial feature I can't live without.
"More importantly, the XS Max is huge. It’s not just the biggest iPhone ever, it’s one of the biggest phones out there, period."
In others words, Apple has completely given up on competing against Samsung on the hardware and software side and has now resorted to a marketing strategy of "My penis is bigger than your penis."
WIBC hosts The Chicks on the Right talked about Apple's latest example of their inability to function without the genius and leadership of Steve Jobs on Wednesday's show:
"How can you hold it at this point if it's going to be bigger?"
"How can it be more expensive that it already is? Pretty soon we're going to be carrying around laptops."
"I don't want bigger, but I got the bigger of the iPhone 8s because I like the memory and features of the bigger phone.
"But what does it have to bigger to get those features? Isn't that the point of technology advancing? I feel like we're going in the opposite direction."
"Not to mention that you could lease a car for what it costs to buy a phone now."
