    lolol i still have an iphone 5 because i stopped caring about how new my phone is & im too poor to buy a new one anyways (gotta afford that first membership somehow).

    if i get a "new" phone now it'll probably be another 5 just because 6 is ugly and the lack of headphone jack on the 7 means i wont be able to save my phone when i inevitably drop it.

    remember when Apple fired Jobs and then they lost the market? And then they got him back and he saved Apple and made it amazing?
    Gonna be hard to get him back this time.
    Loved the iPhone for a long time, but for me its time to switch.

    no one does snarky, and praise in the same video the way funhaus does. these guys always have some good gold, and i know im getting the new iphone when i upgrade next.

    As an iphone user, I'm already use to apple shitting down my throat and making me pay for it, so the condescending in this video is just really funny and very true.

    Aw man, when I saw this in the schedule I was like, "Please, let Funhaus be the one doing this video, I need to watch them snark the hell out of it." I was not disappointed. Some silly choices, particularly in terms of presentation, made by apple, but that's the power of making your own ecosystem.

    I dont have an apple phone.
    That means the camera FITS INSIDE MY PHONE,
    and the phone can lay flat on the table without rocking when I type.

      Why are you laying your phone down to type on it tho?

    • RWBimbie Keeper of Poems

      11 months ago

      Because OLD people learned to type with their fingers not their thumbs.

      Thumbs should only be used for hitch-hiking, saying OK, and hitting with hammers.

    Apple was actually making progress with the 6 and 6s. Starting to add widgets, bigger phones, it looked like they were finally starting to get their shit together. Then they announce the 7 and ruin it all. Fuck off, Apple. To think i actually had hope for you.
    I'm going back to the stance I had before the 6 came out: iPhone is good for old people and as baby's first smartphone. Its simple and easy to use, a good introduction to smartphones. But for anyone who actually uses computers and technology, its just too damn restrictive

      Look up a company called OnePlus, great phones and really affordable. They sell directly to consumers (like a lot of net companies these days!) so there's no big markups and you're not tied to any carriers.

    • Maregon FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Oneplus, LG, HTC, Samsung in recent years, any Nexus/Pixel, the higher end ZTE and Huawei phones, Motorola. Pretty much any Android that costs more than $200.

    The success of this phone will only be thanks to Apple's other inventions including phones, earbuds, sound, watches, and apples.

    With every new release I really do feel that losing Jobs really has cost them something creatively. I mean, even the Woz questioned them removing the headphone jack. I wonder at what sound quality may be lost plugging my super nice headphones in the adapter to use the lightening port. I don't wonder at the irritation of losing my ability to charge my phone with a portable battery while also remaining plugged in, something I a bit of when traveling.


    I won't comment on the Apple attitude. If you love it then you'll still love it after watching the presentation. If it annoys the hell out of you then expect to remain annoyed.

    • wrayman FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That's how they'll sell you the wireless headphones. Alternatively, you could just not buy the new iPhone? Sounds like you've already decided "well, I'll just have to deal with it"

    • DaveTehBrit

      Apple has never really done much innovation in the phone market, they've repackaged old ideas.

      It's their marketing team that sells them extraordinarily well.


      From the beginning it was more of you're buying into the brand more than buying the product, so it really only makes sense that they're introducing this new headphone jack.


      They've been trying to lock consumers into their brand for a while now and this is just another step they're taking. Once you're in,it's tough to get out, and requires probably more effort than most are willing to get out of the restrictive iOS system.

      The only things that bother me is the weird things that they focus on, like phone thickness (hasn't really been an issue since like 2012, but you do you Apple) and the way they present it like it's a discovery on par with discovering life on other planets (like funhaus mentions in the video).

    • RiverRunning

      It has always been presentation with Apple; there is no innovation at all - creativity in design maybe, innovation, no. I mean the first iPhone came out to a fanfare in the US but in Europe it was considered rather meh... because almost everything thing that was an "innovation" in the US was already in phones sold in Europe, it even missed out a few things that were already standard in Europe... oops!

      And the pay system being in the phone (maybe only for Japan) is actually a killer in Japan - no iPhone sold almost any units in Japan due to the lack of this; why? EVERY other phone has it built in - you could add it afterwards to the iPhone with a piece of hardware that had some glue on it but Apple wouldn't support it and then went after the company that made it... result - zero sales.

      They sold XBox vs Playstation 2 levels of phones in Japan because to use the train, underground and many bus services you can just walk through with a phone that pays for you (and 90% of the gates were for that, you had to find the one actual ticket gate if you used physical tickets) , same with vending machines, some trendy shops, bars and cafes, and parking in a lot of places in Tokyo. And this was in the days of the early iPhones... these days they are so late to the party that everyone is already too drunk to notice them come in the door (even if they are setting off fireworks).

      I guess another case of international companies not understanding the Japanese market - particularly that they are technologically way ahead of us because they are mostly a nation of early adopters and so the risk of innovating is so much reduced, but then the quality control is so good that there is so much less risk in buying technology - the biggest risk is that it doesn't take off outside Japan, c.f. Laserdiscs, Nintendo Virtual Boy, GameCube, Wii U, Playstation 3, autonomous robotic toys, Mechs, robotic chefs, secretaries and reception staff, etc.

      wrayman - I've used iPhones at times professionally but personally I've been a happy Android user since the original Moto Droid, complete with licensing from Lucas Arts. I'm not buying the new iPhone7 but I do worry about it setting a stupid bit of monkey see-monkey do with other manufacturers also doing the same.

    Love you guys been so condescending to Apple. It makes me laugh.

    With all the major annoyances that you have to go through with an iPhone, I think I stick with my phone that hasn't giving me any problems after 4 years of using it. So, no thank you Apple and thank you Google and LG.

    I laughed at that Blink 182 insult far more than I should have.


    On a more serious note, I've given up referring to anything coming out of Business Insider as "analysis." The fact is that many irrational tech projections, like the $160 billion VR market by 2020, come out of BI. It's become clear over time that, as a mass market news and analysis firm, they're only interested in producing stories that will gain interest. Personally, given I need to look at analyses to better inform my own work, they've lost all credibility (and the rampant jingoism also helped the decision).

    I like how they said the camera was apples strong suit just to ask have you guys looked into samsung phones? I'm an apple user I have the 6s I use my dads note 5 to take pictures all the time because its simple better then the 6s. and if you haven't heard of it already check out the moto z it to removed the headphone jack but has this neat feature where you can add attachments to the back of the devices for style or functionality (ie a god damn projector attached to your phone)

      Erm, I use my twelve year old Olympus DSLR to take 12 Megapixel images in RAW format... and it's images will still be better than the iPhone 7's ones - I get wide-angle and any level telephoto from that up to x3 as well. The bonus of battery life that extends to weeks or months (depending on use, not just access to a wall socket) and storage bigger than you can buy on the iPhone (with forward compatibility still being maintained) and all for a price point then less than a new iPhone (by almost half) I reckon I'll stick with what I have.

      (Yes, I do have a mobile, yes it cost ten currency units (one hundred in Japanese or other "big number" currencies) and it does all the other stuff most people use an iPhone for too).

    Really enjoy FH, don't care what phone, console or PC folks buy. Not sure Apple came out today saying they invented blue tooth, stereo sound or water resistance. Not an apple fan in general, have an iPhone, tower PC & laptop running Windows 8 & 10 respectively.

    Not sure why folks get so defensive about a product and venomous against another. If you order Coke you don't necessarily hate Pepsi.

    I've been a PC gamer for years but also own an XBox, thinking of picking up a PS4 as well for exclusives. Maybe I'm in the minority, but products are put out there for the consumer to have an option to buy.

    Make your choice but don't let emotion or "brand loyalty" sway you. iPhone 7 looks good . Not a fan of no 2.5 mm headphone jack but like the specs overall. Just my humble opinion. Liking a product doesn't lock you into being associated with the brand. Get a phone, PC, Conole you enjoy. That's it.

      That said I'm an old man in gamer terms. Was in College in the mid to late 1990's. Remember switching between my and my next door neighbors dorm rooms depending on if we were playing Dark Forces (his because it ran better on PC) and mine because Myst seemed to work better on Mac.

      We never had to get upset at what we owned. We both bought a companies product, not endorsements.

      That said Bruce, Escape Velocity was our fav for like 9 months! There was a great mod to be the enterprise that had so much storage :). Keep up the good work fellas

      I think they're just implying that people think that apple invented things, because of the way they do their presentations. Instead of just saying they've made a new phone with new features, they have to make a massive deal about it all, as if they've just invented it.

      I think people also feel that if they don't have the best new widget, then it's the worst. So, they'll fight samsung and android about how perfect apple and ios is, when comparably, who fucking cares. They both make calls and texts, they both have great cameras and lots of storage. They fulfil well over the necessary amount of features a phone needs to. There's literally nothing to fight over.

      I might be too young to have noticed, but did people fight over who had a better landline handset? Usually you'd just argue over who had a better plan.

      you are rare in that mind set, but you have the right idea the goal for all gamers in my opinion is to own and enjoy all without them being forced down your throat or mocked. The same should apply for any kind of electronic.

      Myst was originally developed for the Mac, so that's probably why. Myst IV was actually shown off at an Apple Keynote in like 2004 by Steve Jobs prior to its release, I believe.

      You're right, of course. Competition is the way the free market works, and it's incredibly important that there always be competing brands. But I think we can agree that there's something creepily cultist about Apple. Every press conference they do feels borderline masturbatory (which was what Funhaus was making fun of them for). Just really self-congratulatory, even when there's really not much to congratulate.
