No Wonder Aliens Won't Visit Us!

Post by HoratioTarr on Sat Sep 24, 2016 5:21 pm

Fucking idiots!

Apple's new iPhone 7 has two speakers but no headphone jack on handset
Prank video on YouTube directs hapless owners to create their own port
Using a clamp a man holds phone in place before drilling a 3.5mm hole
One YouTube user wrote: 'The amount of people that thought that this is real is worrying for the future of the human race'

Ah, the beauty of capitalism -- there are a lot of really nice, high-quality, high-end earbuds and headphones out there, and Apple's trying to apply market pressure so that hopefully anyone seen with wires coming out of their ears will be deemed a Luddite, and we'll be socially motivated to buy iPhones.

Apple has long been gone up its own arse.

That's why folks like me and Veya keep saying, avoid Apple like the plague. The redirect problem we've been having on this site? Only happening on Apple devices, at least lately (there was a problem a few weeks ago that affected all mobile devices).

Seriously, anybody with an iPad or iPhone should plunk down about half what they paid for their iCrap and get a perfectly good Android device, then sell the iCrap and get most or all of their investment in the Android device back.
