I still say the people waiting in line
"Iphone 5 is the most amazing best apple product ever"
I rest my case.

It wasn't Fox News. It was a local Fox network affiliate. And Fox News haters wonder why ppl make fun of them! Who's guiltier of misrepresentation: the reporterette who wouldn't know an iPhone from an iPad or the person who wrote this "news" article calling her a "Fox News" employee to advance an anti-Fox News agenda?!? Priceless.

Ok....Fox is Fox, correct? A local Fox affiliate still represents Fox...

Well, they are both crazy, but the local affiliates are a different kind of crazy. ;)

Fox News replays video and reporting from its affiliates, just like every other news channel. They are not gonna send a news team to cover it when they have an affilate there already. It will fit well with all their other "fair and balanced" reporting. We are all just waiting for something equivalent to the phonehacking scandal in the UK to finally kill off Fox News once and for all.

Fox News, Fox Broadcasting Company (where the local news is done) and 20th Century Fox are separate moneymaking wings in the US for native Australian Rupert Murdoch. It looks like all 3 divisions of the Fox conglomerate engage in producing fiction.

How about the holographic image of Steve Jobs, speaking about the features, instead of user manual?

In fairness, if they're getting an iphone then dissapointment is an inevitability. Especially a few months down the road when android is running even faster circles around apple!

The iPhone 5 may not have these features, but you can bet Apple has patents pending on them, which cover any similar or related functions.

iPhone users are so stupid they'll believe anything. I heard the iPhone 5 will also save the US economy and bring about world peace.

Ok, to the dim wit that wrote the article to promote your anti-fox agenda


Fox News is a national pay cable channel, unrelated to the local news stations.

Who's "fair and balanced"? Yea. Stop trying to be political. It's not working for ya.

In other news....Apple has just patented the virtual keyboard, Judge Lucy Koh has just banned all real keyboards made by Samsung with letters and numbers similar to Apple's virtual one....back to you Bob.
