Hey it's Mr Important again!!! You really need to come up with a better way of depending apple dude - we have Android phones that cost nearly as much as an iPhone. Was the inflated price your only reason for buying an apple product?

Don't think that your statement is correct on this one. I admit that I am an apple fan but this one really looks like it's targeting kids now. While I'm at it, I read somewhere the other day that they were praising the fact that apple was going to make the Apple Watch a standalone device where you do not need your iPhone. Kind of funny that Samsung can say "been there, done that" with that one.
