what do you have to do with apple profits as a consumer? The line between stupidity and fanboyism is getting more blurred everyday...

The profits point out one simple painful fact: You've paid that much just for the brand name. Apple could've sold the iPhone for 200usd and still make a nice bunch of profit. But I guess greed and preying on those that don't know any better has clearly taken the upper hand. And having main competition from Android that's full of bugs and problems and the other competition having a better OS but much worse brand image is of course not helping either. The iPhones hardware is extremely simple and has no standout features. It's cheap to build and cheap to repair and easy to replace. This is exactly why so many not-tech people buy it. It's just the device they're the least afraid of. It's the simplest hardware and software with no surprises, no fancy features and doesn't stand out. That's why so many people like it. Not much can go wrong with something that doesn't much in the first place.

the 70 million iPhones sold in a single quarter still wows me, as well that the 10 million sold JUST in one weekend. If I was CEO of Samsung Mobile, I sure as hell would be envious of this.
