Well done Apple. Good work.

Keep going from strength to strength and hopefully one day all those inferior products will be gone for good.
Do you want Chilli on that?

Awesome news, now they can afford to pay the individuals who make their products an extra 2p a month.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Just waiting for the fanboys to comment that Apple is ripping them off etc etc. Some people haven't yet realised that companies are there to make money. Google,Microsoft and Samsung are no different. Its the balance sheet that counts. Your just a statistic to them! So just enjoy the product you want to buy!

Really? That honestly makes you proud? Dude, you need some more substance to your life if that's your benchmark for pride.

Speak for yourself monkeyflaps!

My message to apple would be, "Kill yourselves, do whatever it takes to remove yourselves and your sh*tty products from the face of the planet, yours sincerely Nimron Tang."

Oh, and kids instead of the flaming non-apple smartphone dog sh*t trick, go to martinawatsons place and see if it's actually possible to break double glazed windows with apples. If not just punch some granny smith's through the letter box to make your point. (disclaimer - the aforementioned suggestion is of a completely humourous nature and shouldn't be taken seriously by anyone)
It's just a ride.

Funny. We always deride the people who come into these threads and start shouting out iSheep, what a waste of money, better products - all hype etc

Except this time its the Apple lovers that are made to look like a bunch of fannies. Interesting.

Congrats to Apple.

Profit made on the back of human suffering is always a welcome thing, right?

Blood diamonds from poor African nations sanctioned by the UN whilst Bono signs a song about justice but its cool for those poor Chinese workers to be worked to death so that everyone has something to download Bono's song onto eh?

Whilst im on the subject, F**K you Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony for doing the same, and mostly F**K me for buying a couple of them, ultimately i'm to blame.

I think what i trying to say is pay the workers a fair wage everyone, im all for profit but not at the expense of suffering.
Come on Apple lead the way, do the right thing.

Why thank you sir!

Martinawatson - well played. Now I'll have to devise another devious fruit-based plan. Maybe something involving loganberries and a trebuchet!
