The Macalope: Disappointment city

"Everybody wants a larger screen phone..."
Really? Does that include the 9 million people that purchased new iPhones the first weekend? Seems to me they missed the "everyone" amount by about 9 million. Truly laughable...
And that our culture has become so intellectually lazy that they will believe anything that is written without the least bit of intellectual skepticism is sad. Thank you Macalope for adding intellect and humor back into the equation.
Frankly I don't want a "phablet". I'll use my iPad if I need a larger screen. I want my phone to first and foremost be a phone. If it can do all of the other cool stuff that is simply a bonus...

I think you're making the same mistake here as TMF. Just because hit-wh... I mean pundits will write it doesn't mean that readers will believe it. Certainly, 9 million people don't.

If Apple left the stock market wouldn't they still like make massive profits and become self-sufficient to the point that Wall Street would have to commit suicide because there would be no massive players to manipulate their stocks in order to be profitable.
Here's a question. Isn't what Wall Street doing to Apple illegal? So how come no one has gone after them?

I'd really _love_ to see Apple introduce a 4.8" iPhone AND a 4" model, both with great new features. Having used an HTC one (4.7" FullHD display) for a while, I'm coming back to the iPhone. I'm not coming back for the size, though. I'd *LOVE* the HTC if it were running iOS.
