    I'm really not a huge fan for Apple but I'll probably watch the event tomorrow if I have some free time.

    Are you guys going to watch?

    I can't wait until they show off some new feature that Android has had for years and a new subtraction/change to the phone that will make you buy replaceable parts right from the start that people will complain about and then inevitably give in to because they can't get Apple's dick out of their throat.

    Yeah, kind of what he said... although I have a 7 plus, which I really like, I'm way more interested in the new watch they're coming out with.

    Just watched it, not impressed. Was really looking forward to what thhey would do with the new phone. Here's my take:

    8, 8+ and X revealed
    8 gets better camera, glass back, new color, and wireless charging, processor for augmented reality
    8+ gets the same, but dual cameras and a better photo processing capability
    X gets all of that, new OLED screen, facial recognition, no home button


    Overall, very underwhelmed. Not sure what I was expecting, but the X looks like any other generic Android shit. I couldn't wait to see what my next phone would look like, but now I'm still wondering. There was nothing there that makes me want to spend $999 for it.

    Basically they keep giving "better screen" and "better camera" when the ones I have on my current 6 is just fine. Give me something like a shatterproof screen, more storage, something that innovates. There is literally nothing here that is an innovation, it's just a slight improvement over what was put out 10 years ago.

    Oooohhhhh, look at the cool guy over here that is too cool for Apple.

    Yeah, Android is good at getting shit products to the market first. Too bad most of the time they don't work, but man are they FIRST!

    The product I actually AM excited about is the new apple watch. Now that it has LTE and I won't need to have my phone with me to make calls and text, that could make my life easier.

    I'm too cool to spend more money for less product because it has a piece of fruit on it, yes.

    I'm curious as to what "doesn't work" with Android.

    Yep... I currently have the "new" Series 1 watch and love it.

    The series 3 looks to be a true upgrade and nice addition of the LTE option.

    Well, how did that touch ID screen work out for you? You know, the one that they failed at so they put the awkward sensor on the back? What anti-virus are you running? Me I don't run one because iOS is secure unlike whatever flavor of android you are running. How's that smart watch that can't run unless your phone is setup just right, powered on, in cell range, etc?

    Exactly. Limit who can put your product on it because you don't want shit sporting your name.

    Or you can be a whore that let's anyone with a buck put your name on their product.

    Never had a phone with "Touch ID" and would turn it off if I had one with it.

    I use Lookout. Free of charge, comes with the phone.

    Never had any problem with my smartwatch either. Nor any functionality with my fitbit, soundbars, chromecast and the copious other shit that blasts from my phone.


    I'm glad Apple has figured out with it's superior R+D the antenna problem and bending build quality. And has mostly caught up to Android in the OS department!

    I wasn't aware that options in life were a bad thing.

    Antenna-gate wasn't a real thing, neither did the bending. The antenna was proven to not be part of the separator bands, and the bending guy admitted it was a fraud.

    I have plenty of options in the iPhone world. What I don't have is the ability to buy a product that just won't work.

    So antennagate wasn't a real thing, but Apple paid out a class action lawsuit because of it.

    lol, got it.
