 The greatest ironies about your posts and the Fire TV are:The Amazon UK website doesn't even mention the Fire TV, much less say if or when it will be available in the UK.  In contrast Amazon US have the Fire TV in stock and on sale.  Apple TV is on sale in the UK yet you say Apple is the one with the US centric view. the info about the Fire TV on Amazon's website states:

These people are even cheaper than Google: https://hubic.com/en/offers/ €1 ($1.40) a month for 100 GB €10 a month for 10 TB compared to Google's $100 (€72) for the same capacity.
 It is just you.I've found several features which iOS 7 offer, the control centre, AirDrop, the new features with Safari and iCloud, the blocking of nuisance calls and messages, to be of immediate practical benefit for me over iOS 6. These features work reliably for me, my iPhone 5 works reliably, so, iOS 7 is a definite improvement over 6.
 I think you're mistaken with your cynicism; it's easier for Apple to behave like most Android handset manufacturers by not making any effort to supply system updates for current and older models.

One of the reasons for hoarding old iPhones could be the relatively low prices offered by the "buyback" companies. The Apple approved reuse and recycling programme in the UK offers £27 for a pristine 32GB iPhone 3GS. It's a struggle to buy any new phone with the features of even the old 3GS for £27. Therefore if there's any chance of needing a spare handset, e.g. when travelling, it makes more sense to retain the iPhone than purchase a basic phone at a higher price.
 Lovely, more irony from you GTR about missing the point.The point of the article is about how much hardware isn't used but left to collect dust. Pooch was pointing out how his experience is counter to the article's findings. So, spare us your sanctimonious lectures about being civil, on topic and being anally-retentive.
The greatest irony being your post quoting Cretin's law moved the discussion towards that zero probability than my previous post contemplating what happens with old iPhone hardware.So, GTR, are you keeping the discussion civilised?
I haven't if the point of his post is that his old 3GS is being reused, for want of a better term, as a travel phone and has proven itself to be still versatile and useful wherever in the globe it may be.My issue is that the inaccuracy undermines confidence in believing the post.
