iPhone 8 now outsells X, and every other phone

Re: @AC It's had its day.

You do have a point about high end goods.

But how many high end goods can you think of are built in China?

And the comparison is more like high end electronic devices, remember JVC, Panasonic, they are still around but they are not the players they used to be, its Samsung and LG.

Nobody crows about their state of the art electronic kit from the 70s (outside hardcore anorak's)

Re: @AC It's had its day.

Did you miss the part where Apple sells both the #1 AND #3 most popular phones in the world? Hardly "on the way out" now is it?

No it just proves there are a lot of idiots with more money than they know what to do with..

The hardware side of Apple hasnt really offered anything new in years.

And the software is either offering new fluff or nothing that isnt already available on other platforms.

And buildings full of 100s people where a few years ago were dominated by Apple are now Android/Variant, plus lacklustre reviews after lacklustre reviews after lacklustre reviews is hardly a few of their mates

Even Apple has admitted its sales arent where they expect them, so this is less "Apple Haters" being haters and more "Apple Fanboys" not willing to face what is actually happening.

iPhone8 will eventually be unavailable, the X isnt tickling anyone's nuts and their lines up over the past years is not making anyone excited for the coming years..

@AC It's had its day.

Your not wrong, I started to see lot of people, many of them I would of regarded as fairy hardcore fan boys, just moving away.

In the age of fairly high end, throw away android phones such as the cubots and the likes, it makes very little sense sticking with companies like Apple, who these days are really not offering anything new, if in fact not playing catch up to what other systems are offering, at prices that a frankly redonkulas.

Buying outright a throw away phone and choosing a reasonable contact you are literally saving 1000's, especially over a two year period.

Honestly people who still buy into these "exclusive deals" just so they can have the latest version of the shiny badge need to have their heads looked at.

Re: At the risk of being branded misogynst...

@Peter Gathercole

Careful there, with all that reasoning and basic logic you are showing your toxic masculinity as well as being a rape apologists misogynst.

Until we have a complete shake-up of society,

And this is what feminist and other sjw progressives are continually wishing for, that somehow society that has existed for 1000s of years all over the world i.e "the patriarchy" (not really its one of buzz terms they like to use) but the fact it has men protecting women with children in the middle or "the family unit" (which is something else they appear to hate)

Will suddenly become unpopular and disappear, just so they can justify their own life choices.

Well it simply isn't going to happen, and people are waking up to this fact for the cancer on society it really is.

Like this 'Pay Gap', there is no pay gap what there is is an 'earnings gap'.

Men Earn more because they Work more, on average, and hopefully this government intrusion into private companies will finally provide the proof of this.

And ultimately this is all BS.

They say it is for "equality", but I have yet to see them pushing for more women in the highly dangerous men dominated profession's, nor the one that require them to be neck high in human shit, its always the nice high paying jobs with air-con.

Nor am I seeing ANY effort in getting men into female dominated fields, like child care or health care.

Like all cancerous neo-marxist ideology, everyone is equal, expect the ones with the most snowflake points, they are more equal than you comrade.

More approvals are likely to come. Online records from China's trademark office indicate that Ivanka Trump's company last applied for trademarks — 17 of them — on March 28, 2017, the day before she took on a formal role at the White House.

Re: da drumpf! da drumpf!

@Voyna i Mor

Pretty much ALL of that.

If you want to have a country that wont be threaten by the world police, then you need to build nukes.

So even if Iran's programme isnt for energy as they have always claimed it is, then the reason to build those nukes wasnt discourage due the world police actually not doing anything about it.

See, India, Pakistani and Israel

*And by World Police I'm not just placing this on the US, the UN has the responsibility here.

Re: da drumpf! da drumpf!

"He failed to live up to the agreements of the accords by pulling out of them, there is no exclusivity clause in that statement, both are inherently true."

No they are not, Trump wanted to get out of those agreements.

Did he get out of those agreements - Yes!

Somehow that equals failure?!

"Why would it be bad if Iran gets the nuke?"

Thing is I didnt ask that question, I asked what right to you have to dictate how another nation defends itself?

"Because the odds are pretty high that they would use that nuke on Israel."

Yeah, looking at recent history, there is just as much chance that Israel will be the one doing the nuking.

"The accord was put in place to try and ensure the middle east didn't become a desolate nuclear wasteland, Iran went as far as they could go in that agreement, any further and they would have rejected it"

True, but then again that would of stopped the whole energy programme.

"and continued their strides towards becoming nuclear armed."

There is no evidence to support that this is their end goal, they have always maintained it is for energy purposes.

"Now what? "

Yeah, now what?

Lets just assume that they are as evil as the US government says it is, and they have gone and built the Nukes.

India and Pakistan have nukes, I'm stilling waiting for that area of the world to suddenly be turned into glass.

I'm pretty sure that the people of Iran and Israel arent particular keen on glowing at night.

"As for being anti-semitic, no, I just don't believe Israel should have a get out of jail free card for everything they do, they used their win of the Eurovision (the song for peace) in military propaganda about killing people with American planes."

That was a 'joke', I'm not going to sit here and defend "da joos", because you are right, they are responsible for some real shady shit.

Trouble is you start pointing this out and suddenly you're a Nazi, a bigot etc.. etc.. Ad nauseam.

Re: da drumpf! da drumpf!

"He has failed to follow agreements"

" He pulled out of the Paris accord"

"He pulled out of the Iran accord "

He failed or he pulled out? Choose one.

Rejecting something you disagree with is not failure.

Just because you think its a good idea doesnt mean everyone in the world does.

"because he wants Americans to die from pollution related diseases."

Yeah I'm pretty sure that was part of the campaign pledge.

"even though Iran was keeping to the accord."

So even if you think its a bad deal, you should carry on without question?!

"Now the sane countries are trying to keep that accord going because the alternative is Iran working on their own nuke."

Yes, because that's what they working towards everything pointed to it, expect it doesnt.

And lets just say that you are right, and?

What right do you have to dictate how a country defends itself?

"Now he wants Korea to believe he'll live up to any agreement he had made?"

No he only doing this for the lol's

"He went against the peace accords for Palestine and stated that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel (it isn't) which totally screws up an oppressed state which is constantly violated with human rights abuses (but any time it's brought up in the UN with a condemnation, the US vetoes it)"

Careful that sounds anti-Semitic, here in Air-Stripe One that is counted as hate-speech, you could end up doing 12 months. Can I see your online posting licence?

"Oh, and he's made the rest of the world look at the US and go "how the hell did they elect something worse than Bush Jnr?"."

Yeah, nothing to do with the media spazzing out about the R thing I was going on about earlier.

"In closing, you state that Trump leanings are more to the left, well, the thing is, in every single country other than the US, your left is still our far right."

First off I'm not American, the way I spelt certain words should of been a give away.

And yeah left and right at this point are meaningless, but that doesnt stop the amount of authoritarianism, you can say what you like but you dont go to prison for making nazi dog jokes or twitter posts in the US, such is the state of the UK.

Now anything else you want to get emotional about because some people dont think the same as you?

#Thinking that every culture in the world have the same values.

#Thinking that every culture in the world see strength and weakness the same way.

Its funny how every time trump 'throws his toys out of his pram' the east capitulate.

To the point where the Korean war may finally be over (or at the very least a lot closer to it that it has been in the past decades), and most of that was due to Trump leaning on China.

You had Obama 'the statesman' who was viewed as so weak in the east they literally turned their nose at him at every opportunity, even when he visited China they didnt even bother to send anybody to meet him.

Trump on the other hand was given a full honours parade.

Its hilarious even when the guy is doing something right, they still cant give the guy his due.

And his crime for all this hate, because he had a R after his name when running for election.

Never mind that the guy had been a business Democrat for most of his life.

Or that most of his policies are left leaning, well except for the lower taxes (ermahgod literally Hitler)

Point is Trump knows you have to play hardball in the east, its why he has managed to do more in that area of the world in the past 6 months that Obama did during 8 years, Or even what Hillary "it was her turn - because entitlement" Clinton would of managed, which I no doubt would of been on the lines of selling Chinese baby organs to help funnel large amounts of cash into the Clinton Foundation, buts lets not focus on the evil of our team colours..

But anyway.. Trump is playing the their game their way, and every time he does something not to western sensibilities the media spazzes out because of it own ignorance.

And YET these are the same fuckwits telling us we should get rid of our boarders and let large populations in from completely different countries because 'we are all the same', ironically the bigotry is astounding.

Re: Early information

"Please don't say, "Ban all guns," or something akin to that. It may have worked in the UK and parts of the Commonwealth,"

That's the thing though.

It hasnt worked here, not even a bit.

I know the constant propaganda tells you we have very little gun violence here because of it, but the actual fact of the matter is that we have never really had a problem with gun violence to start with, even when guns were widely available to the public.

And the levels of violent gun crime are at similar levels as they have always been.

And lets face it the UK has banned just about everything to the point where it is a meme.

'Oi M8, you got a licence for that!'

Hasn't stopped London from having more murders than New York.

And there are countries in Europe that have plenty of guns in their population, and virtually no gun crime.

But they are often overlooked, (And by overlooked, I mean purposely ignored because they go against the main propaganda points) because its easier to blame 'things' than 'people'

Because you cant blame people or groups of people for their actions, because people being held responsible is apparently a bad thing.. for reasons..

That said I do have to wonder though how many of these kids, surrounded, influenced (indoctrinated?) in 'celebrity culture', would of even thought to do these things, if the media didnt go out of their way to make sure that they would be household names, I mean CNN had supposedly taken screenshots of his facebook pages minutes after it happened ffs.

#Government passes "hate speech" laws.

#Doesn't actually define what hate speech is.

#Because of "hate speech" laws, man telling joke almost ends up in prison.

#No one was offend by said joke, no one reported said joke, and the courtroom decides what YOUR intent was.
