Are these people for real??

Post by whet » Sat Jan 24, 2009 1:46 pm

Just spotted this item on a google news search.
http://www.iphonestalk.com/knight-rider ... very-well/

Basicly they are moaning that the phone Sarah had at the start of"Knight to a kings pawn" was a bad copy of the I phone.

1. it never even came across my mind that it was suppost to be an I phone.. who says it was?
2. any anycase they wouldn't use a real i phone, Have these people never heard of product placement? :shock:

Why would NBC want to give a free ad to Apple?

Some people moan about the stupidest thing honestly. :x

I thought that the phone's display was a creation of the 2D effects team....

If anything, it looked more like a Blackberry than an iPhone. They might be just a little vain, methinks...

the phone looks like a sprint htc touch diamond phone with some kind of silver cover on it, why does anybody think it would be an attempt to copy a crappy i phone, there are a lot of touch screen phones on the market that are much better and have a lot more features than the i phone.

I'm sorry but what makes them think that it's a fake iPhone?

It's a Sony Ericsson Xperia X1!

*sighs*

How could those morons write articles when they don't even know the difference between an Apple iPhone and a Sony Ericsson XPeria??

Fanboys are generally complete and total idiots. It's like their calling Personal Media Players or MP3 players iPod rip offs even when it's a device that's either been around longer than the iPod or made by a company that's been in the business longer than Apple and Apple is the actual guilty party for ripping them off.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

Oh wait, they did mention what kind of phone it was, but their bash is on the display, is that any different from the actual phone??

I have an ipod and i dont like it. Apple dont know what support is, as soon as a new version comes out they get rid of support for previous versions. Every ipod has something wrong with it, mine doesnt turn off until i hold the off button for about 30 secs. Otherwise people who defend apple dont realise that generally most of its technology was previously created by other companies, touchscreen phones were already being made in japan ect (HTC touch) however "a big publicity stunt and a load of mac lovers = completly new technology" in apple terms. Thats not say i wouldn't want a mac :mrgreen:

the original KITT - Thanks pal!

As long as we're talking about cell phones I'd like to ask you guys if anyone has seen the all new Nokia 5800 (i.e. in real life)?

They say it should out compete the iPhone.

Only downside with it is the touch screen, other than that they say it's better than the iPhone on all areas and it's cheaper too!

Anyone got something?
