  1. OK a lot of people have been iConned into buying this crap, but I hope the Chinese know better since they will at least think twice before spending hundreds of dollars (over 2 months income) on this over-hyped garbage.

    Apple is right though that the explosions are not its fault. Apple does not have engineers and its products are entirely made be other contractors, less the cute graphics and box.

    The iPhone is made and designed by chinese firms (ok the cute plastic box was designed by crApple), so why don't they just come up with something better on their own?

    By the way wasn't crApple's marketing focused on making the iPhone look like it is "too sophisticated" for export becuase it is just "so damn advanced it can be used in a weapon? :-)
