Could've gotten much more done with a note 2 microscope and split screen apps.

Should'a used the 808!!!
They would'a seen "lossless" worms and even the viruses in the worms.

Yup. You are not allowed to criticize or even point out the WELL KNOWN flaws in apples novelty products, he will remove them. Biased "reporter" (and I use the term as loosely as possible, I've seen more journalistic integrity in a jr high newsletter) is biased and admittedly does not even research things before schlocking together a biased, often innacurate "story".
