  • Nutcakes paying $1K+ for Apple iPhoneMondo Fuego™ , Fri Nov 3 8:03am
    Standing in line for hours. And, they do this about once every year. Thousands of $ pissed away to own a meaningless status symbol. I paid $70 for my Android-based LG SmartPhone at Kroger, and it... more

        but experiences can also be all about the experience.

          My wife is blind, and she uses an iPhone because it has the most usable features. The VoiceOver feature makes the iPhone almost completely usable without sight, right out of the box. The Android and... more

      They have little or no practical purpose, but are rich in meaning. The more expensive, the more status.
      • Which guy is stupider?DFM, Sat Nov 4 10:43pm
        The guy who pays $10 for a fake Rolex watch that cost $2 to make? or The guy who pays $5000 for a REAL Roles that costs $50 to make? DFM
        • Both ...Mondo Fuego™ , Sun Nov 5 9:51am
          Rolex watches are too commonplace, and there are too many fakes. I much prefer Tiffany, Cartier, Baume & Mercier and Audemars-Piguet The Cartier Santos Galbée 18K/Stainless/Sapphire watch is one of... more
          • All are grossly overpriced.DFM, Mon Nov 6 6:09am
            Excluding precious metal, none of these cost more than $100 to make. Yet all sell for thousands. Why would anybody pay 100 times the manufacturing cost for a watch that does NOT keep better time than ... more

              • Gold is certainly expensive.DFM, Mon Nov 6 11:25am
                But, other than precious metals, why should one of these cost more than a Timex to make? Those tiny synthetic rubies are cheap. Precision to high tolerances is also cheap these days. NOTHING in them... more

      with being abused I guess. Marketing does work. I have never owned an Apple iPhone - don't plan on it either. My little tracfone made by Samsung is a Smart phone. Only cost fifty bucks to buy at... more
    • I would never pay that muchTrish, Fri Nov 3 9:21am
      I used a 10 year old flip phone until my service changed. I have entered the modern era, but the phone was about the same as yours and I can get service for about 11/month
