This is bordering on ridicoclous ! and yes, we are talking plastic ....whatever the 'geniuses' at Apple may call it.
What use is for instance the 64bit CPU for us end users? all we care about is speed and longer battery life...only improvement there is that the 5S has longer standby time, wow...hold the press,big advantage...
Before you react, I'm a devoted Apple fan with lots of Apple material, this time I just find that they are aligning their iPhones to what Samung is doing, but Samsung does the same only 30% cheaper.
That's what I meant yesterday, where are the magic moments at Apple?
Welcome to Apple Insider, newbie. As you gain more experience trolling, you will no doubt develop better technique.
Your attempt at a "concern troll," while technically meeting the definition, is a failure.
First: a true "concern troll" establishes the poster as an Apple fan within the first or second sentence.
This gets the pro-Apple reader on your side, and can fool the unwary into developing a (temporary) affinity with you.
Second: mentioning the A7 and its 64-bit computing capability is an obvious, glaring mistake.
An effective troll will never mention a feature or spec that indisputably trumps all competitors' products.
All it does is display your total lack of understanding of what 64-bit computing means for performance.
It makes you look even dumber. And a good troll should at least attempt to look smart.
Third: anybody with a low post count who does nothing but hammer on Apple and its products?
Obvious troll. You should have started with "Yeah, I agree with XYZ." posts to pad your post count first.
But nope. Too late. Better luck with your next handle. Your "ElFig2012" handle is burned. Forever.
Here's a "concern troll" template for you to follow next month, when new iPads are rolled out:
"I loved the presentation, and although I'm a long-time Apple user (Mac Pro, iPhone 5, G4 Cube)
I'm concerned that the new <Apple product> just isn't going to succeed in the open market.
The problem is that <Feature 1> misses the point. I feel that <Competitor name> has done a better job.
Especially with their <Competitor product> and its <Feature 1> implementation, which looks exceptionally good.
I just wish Apple could do as good a job, and if they don't, I might be forced to switch to <Competitor name.>
This is very worrying. Hoping Apple can survive <Competitor name> and the <Competitor product>."
Of course, following such an obvious format will also instantly label you as a copy-and-paste troll.
But that's still much better than your attempt above.
(Oh, and try to use some kind of spell-checker. Jeez.)
