Looks like an iPhone to me, and on top of it, is not "real" yet. It's still a "will exist later" phone.
Linux's not a garbage OS. While you might argue about Android (which I believe is a pretty good piece of engineering, but obviously you disagree, and who am I to say you're wrong? I don't know you, you might be an expert in OS design), I think that both iOS and Android are amazing Unixes, and we are lucky to live in a world where both main OSes are UNIX-based, instead of Microsoft(R)Windows(R)Extreme(TM)Professional(TM)Mobile(TM)Edition(R), or some equally ridiculous...

Students get indebted over decades to pay for "their studies" (read, what universities now decree is the necessary to study). Banks just loan, who cares.    Look at the state of indebtment (and related cost of studying) in France, England, America, Germany. In particular, look at the difference between the cost of...
