Low performance/features and overpriced, I thought only Apple products did this.

Now: Android has a phone for the rich people, while the iPhones are being sold in Wal-Mart at discount prices

PS: It might feel like a scrap metal in my pocket and as ugly and out-dated as the iPhone 5.

LoL...they charge $900 for analog wristwatches that are not as accurate as a 5-year-old free watch from Taco Bell; clearly outdated BS "technology" is what their customers want. I am amazed that these phones are so cheap...

A Tag Heuer watch that is no better than a $5 watch from Wal-Mart costs $900...that is 180x more than it should cost.

These phones are something like a $50 econo phone with a $20 leather case and they are charging $6700...that is less than 100x more than it should cost. Good thing they didn't make a $600 phone; they would have to charge $50,000 for it!

I want to know who on god's green earth has the disposable income for this tripe? $6700? A mid life crisis means buy a car or get a concubine, you know, something you can drive for a while... you can't even talk on this thing.

I thought the whole idea for showing off the fact that you have no peter & a huge bank role for compensation was to actually have something worth being unobtainable by others, not just something grossly overpriced to be overpriced.

That's like the old Minny Pearl character from the Grand Ol Opry... She was the comedian that always wore the price tag on her clothing so folks knew what she spent on the items... But that's what the JOKE was supposed to be.

So the individuals buying these things are what are in charge of our financial infrastructures across the nation, retirement funds, the housing bubble, health plans, corporate business models, entertainment finances & logistics, the cars we are basically forced to choose from & drive and vote on the laws that we're supposed to obey, but they get to dissmiss at a whim... They buy this crap?

Now ponder me this... We're supposed to follow these people's advice and rules? Any of you folks that have read my "rants", do you smell a revolution or is that my 80s brain on drugs again?

Calm down...you can't do anything about it. Fighting them only makes them stronger...just sit back and wait for the economy to fail 100%; these people will be hanged by their $10,000 belts when the riots start.

You're right, but they're too egotistical to hang themselves. If they were that conscientious they'd have done it when the market last went tits up. I suppose I'll just have to have the last laugh when they crawl to me after the zombie onslaught?
