    Now comes the inevitable over-analysis of the logo to see what it’s supposed to represent. At least we’re spared the analysis of the banners that go up outside the venue.

      2 devices without bazels and shows one white and one red what i see lol.

      Sybil Fawlty – (Yelling) … “BASIL!”

      You in line yet? Or just getting very excited about it? Like really excited about it?

    • ciderrules

      I’ll be buying 4 of the iPhone 8’s this year (my wife and I and both my daughters) to replace the 4 iPhone 7’s i bought last year (which I’ll sell used and get a good return on). Rinse and repeat.

    • Rev0lver

      I didn’t realize that iPhones needed to be replaced every year. Must be pretty crappy.

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      So you get a return on selling last years iPhone? Maybe walk us though the math.

    • Rev0lver

      It’s iMath, it’s not logical but the true believers eat it up.

  • John Lofwire

    Overpriced crap event! yay 🙂

    • ciderrules

      That event happened Aug 23rd. Maybe you missed it?

    • Brad Fortin

      I think he just expects products to have little-to-no margin, or negative margin, and that companies will thrive on that. Like all those PC OEMs who used to make little-to-no or negative margin before pulling out of the PC business due to a lack of profits.

    • Rev0lver

      Why do you care if a company makes money from you?

      Serious question, just seems like you’re getting less for your money if the company is making huge profits.

    • Brad Fortin

      Companies that make money from their customers often have more sustainable business models and better products.

    • Rev0lver

      That’s not true at all.

    • Brad Fortin

      Are you claiming that companies that don’t make money have sustainable business models? or are you claiming that companies that can’t afford any R&D have better products than companies who can afford R&D? or both?

    • Rev0lver

      I’m saying that profit margins have nothing to do with quality.

      Tesla has very narrow profit margins yet people are obsessed with their cars. Chrysler SUVs have huge profit margins but are absolute crap.

      HTC has made many great flagship phones but never made a profit.

      Amazon never made a profit for years yet they’re still around.

      Shall I continue?

    • Brad Fortin

      Tesla actually has negative profit margins and only survives thanks to investments and debt. Such a business model is not sustainable.

      HTC made many flagships with great features but none were good enough to get significant sales and keep the company’s finances from going south.

      Amazon never made a profit and also never made a high quality product. None of the Fire tablets can be described as high quality, nor the Fire phone, nor their smart speakers, etc.

      None of the companies you listed have both high quality products and a sustainable business model. Margins have more to do with product quality than you seem to believe. One may not directly cause the other but there is absolutely a correlation.

    • Rev0lver

      Whatever you need to tell yourself to justify bending over for apple.

    • Brad Fortin

      lol

    • Rev0lver

      iLol

    • Marshall Davidson

      You’re wasting your time. This is a man who believes Blackberry has good management. lol! He has practically ZERO understanding of business and that he pretends otherwise is a testament to his delusion.

    • Rev0lver

      Blackberry has excellent management. You’d know it’s the truth if you looked at the facts.

    • Domino67

      There is to most normal people a limit to what is a reasonable amount of profit……..however if I only paid a 0.005% tax rate I would have a lot more money in my bank account also.

    • John Lofwire

      And you would be a tax evading douchbag.

    • Rev0lver

      Factually incorrect yet again.

    • ciderrules

      Still waiting for your technical explanation of Android and how updates and security work in the other thread.

      What’s that? Crickets……

    • Rev0lver

      Just admit. You were wrong. Move on. It’s kind of sad that you’re still dwelling on that…

    • ciderrules

      No, just outing a troll.

      Prediction: You will NEVER engage in a technical discussion, because you know nothing about tech. Just a useless troll who repeats the same comments over and over.

    • Rev0lver

      No need for the insults.

      Just admit you were wrong and move on.

      It’s not healthy to dwell on failure…

    • Marshall Davidson

      You’re one to talk buddy….It continually amazes me you post on tech forums when you haven’t the faintest clue what you’re talking about 99% of the time. The other 1% is using someone’s elses knowledge and passing it off as your own.

    • Rev0lver

      What’s that Shogun? I’m still getting under your skin even when I’m not addressing you? Wow! That’s sad.

    • Marshall Davidson

      The guy is a clown. He posts on discussion thread and has NOTHING to say about the topics in hand but rather seems to think he provides comic levity.
      Easily one of the biggest trolls on this site and others.

    • John Lofwire

      Its lil apple troll like you who need to disappears 😉

    • Rev0lver

      What other sites old friend? Tell me Shogun.

    • Domino67

      Pffffft…… if the rumours are true that the apple phone 8 will be $1,000 to $1,200 USD versus the $750 USD for the Galaxy S8 just shows how much apple rips off its customers.

      But apple is a cult…

      You should change your name to “koolaidrules”

    • Brad Fortin

      Did you miss the Note 8? It’s almost $1000 USD.

    • Domino67

      annnnnnd it’s also a 6.3″ screen phone……You can’t compare the apple phone 8 to the Note as the apple phone 8 is clearly a similar sized/spec’d phone to the Galaxy S8…..which is priced at $750!

    • John Lofwire

      But its has a shinny apple on the back this justify everything to those cultist..

    • Brad Fortin

      Moving the goal posts? No surprise there.

    • Domino67

      Yes I am moving them to where they are both the similar sized…..is that too difficult for you to understand?

    • Marshall Davidson

      Then don’t buy it John Lofuss. I mean there is plenty of overpriced Android crap on the market today as well and Samsung has made their share of garbage in case you missed it.
      Meanwhile Apple share price is at all-time highs and their products remain as popular as ever. Truth hurts I guess.

    • John Lofwire

      Ofcourse samsung is crap as well. Never said otherwise you obviously did not see me comment on Samsung article.

      As popular as ever that why the global market share or iOS device got smaller and sales of iPhones have drop year over year lately.

      Still a Samsung user still have the choice to switch oem and keep all your stuff so if you make the mistake to use one you wont be stuck with the same oem for ever like iOS user.

      I am not hurt I am finding it funny that there is apple lover like you who worship apple haha.

    • Rev0lver

      What does share price have to do with the quality of the product? Obsessed much there Shogun.

  • KiwiBri

    (chanting football supporter style) here we go.. here we go.. here we go..

  • Can’t Fix Stupid

    What else can they remove from an iPhone?

    Them volume buttons probably cost 50c…so maybe they are going going gone?!?

    • Domino67

      Now that would be courageous!
