You have no idea what those people are doing waiting in line or why they are doing it.

All you are doing is making assumptions based on your own negative outlook and judging them in the hopes of making yourself feel better.

True its hard to see, but all deep truths are. However study the globalization situation and all kinds of nasty facts come to light. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

A queue of people waiting in line outside a store that is about to release a new iPhone and you seriously suggest that another person has no idea why those people are there? Do you think that they are lost? Do you suppose that they all just got tired and are standing there catching their breath? Are they compulsive queue joiners and can't help themselves?

They are there to buy an iPhone 5 - no other reason. The only problem with such people is that the smart phone they are hoping to purchase is far smarter than they are.

(BTW, you wouldn't be using Tapatalk whilst standing in a queue would you?)

So World bank "development loans" that enslave entire nations to Debt and force them to surrender their natural resources to the US contractor buddies of the banking cartels have nothing to do with poverty in third world countries right.?

You know most of the Ultra Orthodox ,Evangelical, Anti Apple Jihaadists Just personally hate Apple and its users outright..No excuses. Fair enough thats Life.


but at least prove to us that you are boycotting ALL organizations A tech companies who do $$$business$$ with oppressive regimes, with terrible labor conditions

Promise us "mind numbed Apple cultists" That you do not use any of the "tainted" products from PepsiCo, Nestlé and Procter & Gamble, who invested millions in Egypt during the now-reviled Mubarak regime.

Assure us that the chocolate bar you ate from any American vending machine was not derived from the Forced child labour , used to produce cocoa in West Africa and the underwear wrapping your precious little bottom contains no cotton from the Forced child labour in Uzbekistan.

Show us evidence of your Pure untainted lifestyle
and you might have some credibility.

A wise man.

Many people pay a lot more for products, and may have to wait weeks if not months for delivery but they don't queue on a public street.

These queued up customers more than likely have a great deal of their self esteem tied up in owning what they perceive to be a status symbol like a special shoe or a front row seat at the game. I mean by that a large amount of status is really cheap if you can buy it for $600 or so.
What does a Cadillac Escalade cost? I would hang out in Death Valley a couple of weeks with just water bottles and an umbrella to get an Escalade for $600.

They are certainly trying to impress someone even if it is only themselves.

But hey, I wish I had something they would line up to buy.

Yep, i don't like any of those companies either, and do not partake of their goods if I can help it. But whats so particularly insidious about Apple, is the incredible brainwashing they've performed on the American population, to such an extent that there was almost a national outpouring of grief at Steve Job's death, as though he were some kind of saint or something. Newspapers lauded his many achievements. Listening to the fans you'd think that he'd reinvented the wheel, was the most influential man ever in the history of music, the greatest inventor since edison... ect. ect. Oh and their products are so green! You can buy as many as you like and your actually doing the environment a favor! The advertising and brainwashing is relentless... and now whats horrible is that this has set a precedent for the Pepsis and Nestles of the world to follow suit! They'll be at it now, and we'll be hearing about the CEO of Mcdonalds actually saved third world countries from starvation!

For God's sake!! Its madness.

Apple and its fans are like a spam network.
