A genius bar or customer service reps calling themselves genius is the most idiotic idea I have ever come across! What idiot at Apple came up with this? Its just an insult to the word and to the true geniuses who have come before in various fields

Though it's got nothing to do with this article, I really wanna ask when phonearena will actually build a mobile version view?
I read RSS feed from like 20 tech sites everyday and everytime I see something interesting that I wanna click in to check out the full story, yet when I see it's a phonearena page I normally just don't even bother clicking on the link because it's not only harder to read unless I use the reader mode, but also it's just got way too much stuff to load in the page... It's such a popular site and heavily focused on mobile devices, why doesn't it even have a mobile mode?
Just saying..

I am posting this from the mobile device, but it is too underdeveloped right now to be of much use

@eggimage, phonearena's mobile site is already up there, but for some reason it does'nt open up automatically. If you want to visit mobile version of phonearena then simply type 'm.phonearena.com' on your phone's web browser, without the quotes.

The simple fact that there are so many daily problems and faults with iphones means apple has to have a dedicated extensive help line service in the first place. I've seen it day after day instore, the usual hold the lock button and home button together for 10 seconds to reboot the iPhone is needed quite often for a lot of people

I like that they use the term "reset" they know they wouldn't want to say "Have you tried restarting your iphone?"

Resetting the phone, even a simple power cycle, can sometimes fix some issues. iPhans usually flip out if something isn't working right and instead of looking for a quick fix themselves, they call into customer service, or Apple, freaking out and all it takes it a quick reset.
