    Talking iPhone! Step up, post your iPhone humor!

    Let me begin by saying I have nothing against the iPhone.
    All the hype surrounding it deserves a bit of mocking though.
    Let's start with Apple's marketing department itself.


    What do you do when your product is so big it scares customers off?



    Find a bigger hand model!
    (The product never changed)









    And please, before you sell something as the easiest to use phone ever,
    make sure to give the morning personality a course on how to run it.

    But as I said, it's the hype, not the product, that deserves the mocking. Take it away, Opus.
    Sorry for the huge image, but when I resize it the text gets fuzzy.





    Just to be fair though, Apple's not the only company selling goofy glass faced touch products nobody really needs.
    (yes, the iPhone has a glass face. Don't stick in your back pocket!)
    Microsoft's got their new "Surface" interactive table computer. And Sarcastic Gamer is there to mock it

    How did we ever live without these technological marvels?

    I played with one yesterday. It's pretty sweet, and I was skeptical.

    I just want my phone to send and recieve phone calls. Text messages are okay, but not a priority. Other than that, I have no use for the bells and whistles.

    The new Microsoft Surface graphical interface looks like a really cool way to slow Windows down some more, while hiding everything under "yet one more layer" of overhead.

    I hope I can retire before we start seeing that in the workplace - Programmers had enough trouble getting all the cool new features to work that were introduced by .NET, now we'll probably have a whole new set of problems when they release this shit.

    OK can someone tell me what the iPhone hype is all about? New products come out all the time, why is this one so special?

    You've summed it up nicely. New products do come out all the time. Every now and then one gets fully embraced by the hype cycle. (PlayStation 3 was the most recent before this, and it was a flop). I just enjoy mocking the hype. Its part of my ongoing social commentary
