After being promised $20, pizza, and cigarettes to wait in line for nearly 12 hours for iPhone tickets, about 100 homeless people say they never received their pay. This man described the disheartening experience of being taken advantage of during an already low time in his life.
Side by side photos will remind you just how awesome our technology has gotten in only 20 years.
One is destroyed well before the other. Guess which one.
Because it could be worse.
There’s a huge labor strike happening at Foxconn’s Zhenzhou factory in China, involving thousands of workers.
Amazingly, this happens every time there’s a big new release. It’s like the nerdy gusto of Mars Curiosity’s landing team, but with a corporate mandate. (Again, they’re required to do this, so don’t judge them too harshly.)
Jimmy Kimmel talks to people on the street about the new iPhone 5 which was just announced, and shows them the iPhone 4S and gets their thoughts, opinions and comparisons.
More smart cuteness from the brand.
We thought people might be upset about having to use a new cord, but it turns out all they wanted was a longer one.
Well, it’s here. Everything you need to know about the new iPhone (and iPods).
You like ginger snaps, chicken, and clicking on ads, according to a variety of studies on your kind.
They’re kind of joking, but just until they see if Apple’s into it. WARNING: Hilariously filthy language.
As long as there have been iPhones, bloggers have been guessing what the next one will look like. They’re getting pretty good at it. (UPDATE: Sure enough, there were no surprises in the iPhone 5 launch.)
In case you had any doubt that this is what the next iPhone looks like, here’s a video of one booting up.
Yes, Apple nerds have “known” for a while that the new iPhone was coming today. Here’s what it looks like.
The new iPhone 5 has all the features I need.
Indeed, the iPhone changed my life. But on Black Friday in 2009, I said goodbye to it. And when Steve Jobs’ successor announced the newest version today, I’m ignored the whole spectacle. Or trying to, anyway.
iOS’s rumored assistant feature looks amazing. This demo video has me salivating.

Unless you live under a rock (or a BlackBerry), then you’ve heard there’s a big iPhone-related announcement from Apple tomorrow. However, rumors about it have been going strong since June, and accordingly, they’ve gotten crazy. Let’s see if any of these rumors (or designs) is announced tomorrow.
Another day, another fresh stack of iPhone 5 rumors. We’ve parsed through all the hearsay to bring you the crème de la crème in wild-eyed Apple speculation.
It’s funny because it’s so true. Come on, Apple, get it together. We know you’re going through a lot right now, but stop losing prototypes.

This is not the actual iPhone 5. It is apparently a knockoff of the phone, made at the same factory in China that the actual new iPhone is being made in. These photos are detailed and seem like they match the cases that have already leaked. What do you think? Is this what Steve Jobs will be showing us soon?

Apple has finally fixed the reception issues plaguing the iPhone 4, and presumably will be releasing what’s being dubbed as ‘iPhone 5’ any day now. Subtle. Very subtle.
