    Just waiting for the YouTube video of an iPhone 7 burned to a crisp to go viral after some Samsung shill uses a blow torch to fake it.

    Speaking of Samsung shills I was in line to buy an Egg McMuffin and coffee at McDonalds this morning. The guy in front of me paid with his Samsung phone. The new hire clerk asked him how he did that. Before he could explain her colleagues in unison turned and said, “Oh, that’s Apple Pay, you need an iPhone, girl.” “No it’s NOT!” replied the Samsung phone owner (neckbeard by the way) and you could start to see the steam coming out of his ears. I just stood there trying to hold it in. And that, dear readers, is how far Apple is entrenched in the culture.

    Something just dawned on me....

    No one is talking bout the Watch Series 2 launch. How many people were in line for that or how many were in line for iPhone 7 + Apple Watch?
    If Watch Series 2 did good then the lines outside stores should have been MASSIVE. iPad 2 alone had a huge line, and I'm hearing a lot of people left after the iPhone 7 Plus news. This leads me to believe not a lot of people right ordered one.

    Please tell me I'm wrong.

    Fu**ing A**hole. As if ApplePay didn't exist SammyPay would. He should be thanking Apple his knockoff and his insecure ApplePay wannabe exist because of them.
    these guys are so delusional they act as if their products and services are unique things.

    I gotta say, Apple isn't pushing ApplePay as much as they should if a cashier didn't know what it was in September 2016.

    I have those 'ugly' LG Tone neckbands and I use them for one reason and one reason alone: battery capacity. I can use them non-stop all day, not just the working day but all day.
