Here's what happens when you ask Amazon's boss to sign your Apple iPhone

Here's what happens when you ask Amazon's boss to sign your Apple iPhone
Amazon unveiled its first smartphone, the Fire Phone, a unique device with four front-facing cameras that make possible cool, 3D-like effects all throughout the interface. Amazon’s Fire Phone, however, faces an uphill battle in the already nearly fully saturated US market where Apple reigns supreme.

So what do you think would Amazon’s CEO reaction would be when a loyal Amazon customer that was in attendance asked for a signature on his iPhone 5

Jeff Bezos, the Amazon chief, did not lose his sense of humor and quickly scribbled the following: “Upgrade time?” It’s a little witty jab at Apple rather than anything else, but it’s nice to see Amazon’s chief being up for the fight. 

The Fire Phone goes on sale on July 25th for $199.99 on a two-year contract and it will be exclusive to AT&T.

At least LG and Samsung are changing the size of the phones to meet consumer demand. Apple throws one little gimmick on the same frame, two years in a row....every time.

That might actually be a 5s. The color of the back plate is pretty light. I could be wrong though, and the article does state that it's a 5.

5s has dual flash. This doesn't.

True but there's no space grey 5, only 5S.

I think all this is staged just another marketing trick. Anyway it is fun and I think he is right about "Upgrade time?”. P.S. iPhone is damaged near camera. :P

observant guy, It is actually worn out, patthetic paint job. Thanks to the design philosophy of Apple make, it look pleasing using cheap materials.

How could it be worn out paint job? It's colored glass right there. It looks more like a reflection to me than anything else, I could be wrong but unless the owner of the phone chimes in and clarifies what we are seeing then anyone's answer is pure speculation.

It is a reflection. Both of them stated moronic observations and opinions. I'm looking at my 5s right now and just obtained a close replica of this reflection in my room. Also got a reflection like this on my Nexus 4

No! My opinion and sks1969 is good opinion an your opinion is moronic. ;)

So both you admit both your opinions are oppositely wrong, yet they are both good but mine is bad because it opposes yours? Isn't that Fanboy logic?

Both of us (sks1969 and my) opinions says that iPhone is damaged. I don't state that our opinions are 100% correct because it is just a speculations. But you are coming here and insulting us that our opinions are moronic. Now isn't that fanboy logic?

Stating that it is moronic with clear evidence and proof, is not at all fanboy logic. You on the other hand, purely moronic.

So where is proof?
