I think you'll find that was Sunderland, mate. It doesn't even compare to Newcastle as a city.
Not sure about Michael Dell, money maybe, but probably a load of slaver like the weekly takeover exclusives in that NOTW scum every Sunday.
Mind you, I'd rather have Dell as sponsors that Northern Rock. I could live with that.
Up the toon, and up the iPhone.
Now that is dumb
It's iPhone users who are desperate enough to try a site like this who give the rest of us a bad name. Now THAT is someone who is a slave to all things Apple.
I'm not. I bought an iPhone for 4 reasons:
1. I could afford one.
2. It does everything I need brilliantly.
3. Cos it's quite obviously better than the phones owned by all these iPhone haters, otherwise they wouldn't be bitching so much. ;)
4. I am an O2 customer anyway, and couldn't give a monkey's chuff if the phone is locked or not.
I wouldn't rely on quite obviously dodgy websites like that though. I feel sorry for all those affected by this scam, but I do think that they should have stopped and thought about possible implications before they purchased.
Another definition for iTwat
A person who is called moron / idiot / fanboy / wanker for having the cheek to buy something they like.
I have owned one piece of Apple kit in my life, and only since last month, and object to all of this abuse. If you are so sad that you have to abuse someone because you can't bear to see people using something that you don't happen to like, then you are the one with the problem.
I have worked in IT for nearly 15 years, and in the past I have visited this site for some intellectual discussions, many of which have helped me, and provided a useful insight into the latest developments. I can't bear this crap everytime an article is posted about an iPhone. The Apple-haters rubbish really annoys me. I can't work out why it bothers you so much - if anyone would like to contact me and explain to me why you get so worked up about it, then please feel free. I need to understand what it is that makes you feel the need. We are all intelligent people here, you'll have to help me out as I can't understand why people get so abusive. I need to know how your mind works, and make sure that my kids don't turn out like that.
Here we are in the middle of a credit crunch, and yet some people here still feel the need to come out with plain abuse directed at people who bought a product that they don't like.
You don't like iPhones? So what, who cares? If you think abusing someone, rather than contributing sensibly to the discussion is good, then why don't you go and do it elsewhere?
I am disappointed with the Register, for continuing to allow this to go on. I can't explain how much it winds me up.
You can say that I am biting if you like - you'd be dead right. I'm just sick of seeing the same shit over and over again. Come on, grow up people.
I wear Adidas trainers and don't like Nike. By your obviously right logic, then everyone who wears Nike trainers is a wanker and a Nike fanboy, who fall for the expensive Wayne Rooney adverts for metatarsal-breaking football boots. Don't say it's not the same, cos it is. It's just about shoes and not a phone.
Laugh at me all you want you tossers, I really don't care. Just crawl back into your little holes, check Google for 'iPhone' and then go and find somewhere else to offer your little pearls of wisdom. I'm sure your intelligent comments will wind someone else up.
Criticise the iPhone for it's tie-in, locks, etc, by all means. These are all intellectual, and very valid things to discuss. I don't like it either, but it doesn't make me a wanker. Just don't abuse someone for having the cheek to own one, you're just making a prick out of yourself.
I let things bother me too much, that's my problem, but it needed said.
For fecks sake...
I love it....
I hate it....
iPhone users are morons....
iPhone users are fanboys....
It's a phone for God's sake. Some people like it, some people hate it. So what? With all that is going on in the world at the moment, you would think that there were more important things to get het up about rather than what phone someone chooses to own, and whether you like it or not.
@ Ben Bufton
A 'fanboy' here, apparently...
Tell me how, pray tell, buying something you like makes you a Wanker?
By that intelligent train of thought if you bought the phone you wanted, you too are a Wanker. Oh, and a 'fanboy' as well.
I have never heard anything as ridiculous in my life. Don't assume that every iPhone owner was sucked in by marketing. Perhaps people bought one because they tried someone elses and liked it?
smooth as you like
I got mine no problem at all, without having to queue. Marvellous!
I have a phone I think is brilliant, so if that makes me a moron, then so be it. I'd be more inclined to think someone who takes the time to be bothered in the slightest about what other people buy are the morons, but there you go.
Well I'm away to play with my new phone now, so have fun bitching.
Such hostility. I don't see how buying something you like makes you a plonker. Can't see your logic there. Neither does it mean you're susceptible, gullible or anything. People are capable of making their own minds up.
I saw the phone, liked it, and bought it. It does what I want it to do very well, in my opinion. Sorry if that upsets you. No 3G? Don't use it. No MMS? Don't send them. No Bluetooth File Transfer? Don't use it. If you are that much of a fool to think owning an iPhone makes you susceptible to marketing, then you really are a plonka, in your own mis-spelled way. Bless.
There are people out there who are intelligent to make their own decisions based on what they think, rather than what the adverts tell you, and I am most definitely one of them.
Joke alert, because if that's the way your Anonymous Coward's mind works, then you really are a joke.
Tarred with the same brush...
Not too sure about Mr. Job's comments, but...
I have noticed on this site that there seems to be an opinion that if you own an iPhone, you are a 'Fan Boy'.
I have an iPhone, and I love it, but I am not a 'Fan Boy'. I just bought it because I liked it.
Paris because people are opinionated about her as well...
