And I'd be happy to explain to you why a product's name is as strong an indicator of anything as its specs… provided you actually took me seriously and had an open mind.
With all due respect, you're pretty much the pinnacle of closed-mindedness on this board, along with irrationality. I don't need you lecturing me on open-mindedness, nor on your thoughts of product names, thanks. I've seen what you contribute to that discussion, and it's nothing worth hearing again, although I don't doubt that you'd be 'happy' to type that drivel for the 54,295th time. And no, I don't take you seriously, for good reason, because your posts don't deserve to be taken seriously.
Trust me, I'm not the only one on this board with that opinion, as I've seen how many people you incessantly irritate with your non-stop lecturing, and proclamations of 'facts' about what Apple needs to do so as not to fall into the abyss, and your non-stop threats of how you'll be 'finished' with them if if they do X or Y, which are nothing more but your extremely niche, disconnected opinions. Do you know the definition of a 'mod'? It's a 'moderator', someone who is supposed to 'moderate' the discussion. You do the opposite.
Please, give us your incredible insight on how Apple needs to design it's next phone again to survive, because it must be truly valuable considering the last iPhone you owned was the 1st one they ever made, bearing no resemblance to the features, capabilities, and performance of their more recent offerings. That's what I mean by 'disconnected from reality'. I'm harsh, because you constantly mock others on this forum while pretending you hold some type of special logic, using self-righteous proclamations of fact, and just because you have a million posts or the title of a mod that doesn't make it ok. As for your opinion of me, at least your consistent with your disconnection and history of being wrong, as others here clearly don't share your view. Your posts show a consistent trend that make it blatant that you have no idea what an average person cares about and is looking for, yet Apple must accomodate your strange whims so as to not fall off a cliff. ie. you;re perfectly happy going back to your original iPhone, because 'all your apps' work on it. Last I checked, almost nothing on the appstore is still compatible with the 1st gen iPhone. A prime example of disconnection, and how you're willing to do some extreme, masochistic things that noone else would, yet you pretend to speak for the masses.
