    iPhone buyer gets pwned- as they say.

    Click here for video/article.

    Lady pays a kid $800 for his spot as first in line. She plans on buy $100,000 in iPhones. What happens after the doors open his hiliarious- and makes her look like a complete idiot (I bet it wiped that grin right off her smug face).

    The moral of story, kids: Do your homework before you start laying down big money.

    That.. was beautiful. I had a tear in my eye.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    That was Classic. Some people just don't bother to read the fine print. Some people are just too greedy.

    That's hilarious - I saw a shorter version of it on TV, but they left out the deal about buying the kid's place in line

    Dumbass woman could have probably set herself up as a dealer with AT&T and Apple in advance, and got enough iPhones to sell on eBay like all the other stores did, if she had $100k to play with

    You can play with the user interface with your finger... But you can play with a lot of other things with your finger, too

    I heard that a lot of users are having problems with their new iPhones... And who's surprised by that?

    The rule of thumb is never buy Version 1 of anything - And when a new version of Windows or Office comes out, wait for the 3rd Service Pack (the first service pack fixes the obvious bugs, the 2nd service pack fixes the non-obvious bugs, and the 3rd service pack fixes some of the unintended problems that the 1st & 2nd service packs caused)

    That was just a special moment.
    If at first you don't succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn't for you.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to there level and beat you on experience.

    I guess it's true, the early bird catches the worm that was funny!

    Yeah- but the worm that sleeps in doesn't get eaten! (Sorry, I used to tell my Mom that when she tried to lay that saying on me.)

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    Rush Limbaugh Gives away iPhones

    http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/newsletter.guest.html

    NEW! EIB IPHONE A DAY GIVEAWAY! El Rushbo has obtained ten -- that's right, ten (10) -- new iPhones, and he's giving them away, one a day (except Independence Day) until they're all gone. These are the super-swank, ultra-deluxe, 8 Gig iPhones, the best available anywhere, and the only ones suitable for the EIB audience. One of them is yours, if your name is selected.

    We may have more chances of getting two than that woman who paid $800

    NOTE - If you get a server error, try later

    That is proof that, even though people make fun of nerds constantly, we will always win. We are not idiots! I'l betcha that fellow nerd knew that you couldn't buy more than one per person and that he would pocket a net profit of $100 PLUS the iPhone. Kudos to you, sir...you really made that lady look like a horse's ass!
