    I thought the iPhone looked big in the pictures! I never expected apple to release such a gigantic device. How would I even carry that thing? It's going to take two cows just to make a leather case for it. Absurd!

    Apple has clearly mislead consumers by making the iPhone appear to be a handheld device. An iPhone that big is obviously going to BANKRUPT Apple! It's the end, people! Short the stock! Short the stock!

    I will sue Apple! I might loose my job because I am so distraught. I am going to get paid on this. It is the American way! Apple is responsible for my happiness
