We've always been at war with Eastasia.
Not every iPhone needs a Retina display. A prepaid iPhone could be a rebranded iPhone 3GS, and probably sell quite well. Apple isn't always adverse to lower margins in exchange for marketshare - see the iPod and iPad.
The popularity of Apple's Verizon iPhone also refutes the constant drumbeat of posts on this message board that it would be foolish for Apple to release a CDMA iPhone at all. BUT: Even with having the most popular handset, Apple still barely increased its market share (0.2%) for the month. I honestly thought it would have been much more. Meanwhile Android is up 7%. Very strange.
As I said, not enough to keep up with the demand the iPhone placed on their network. Charging customers $100 a month for service they couldn't deliver is garbage in my book. http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/03/4g-network-test/ Enjoy your HSPA+ on AT&T. If AT&T dicks around with 4G as much as they did with 3G, I wouldn't hold my breath for LTE.
Translation: Our network is shit, as anyone who's every used it well knows. We haven't done jack in the last 3.5 years to do stave the onslaught of iPhone users. When Verizon has LTE rolled out in a couple years, we are going to get our asses handed to us. So please let us buy out a network with half the subscribers but better coverage and service.
In related news, AT&T also provides legacy crappy coverage for iPad customers, no matter when you signed up for your data plan.
Not to mention Rearden Metal. Hank Rearden did that without any government interference. Oh wait...that's fiction written by a sexually frustrated sociopath.
The right in this country tars Obama with the label "socialist." Their Exhibit A is the insurance reform he got passed. But it is hard for them to explain how Obama's use of the ideas of Senator Dole and Governor Romney in putting this package together is "socialist," while those two aren't. It is easy for them to make him an "other" because of his race.
I mean, never mind that those patriots Reagan and Bush Deux are the two presidents that got the US into the massive amount of debt they are in. I mean come on. We had to finance massive tax cuts for the rich and fight godless communism and Islamofascism. But now the $10 trillion of debt were are in is all the fault of "president" Osama - I mean Obama. Jeez. He wasn't even born in America. What does he know about red meat eating, flag waving America? Nothing. And...
