The iPhone 2 looks the same as the 3rd, all of u were ot complaining then. Later when the 4 came out that was on some next level of designing, the 5 is out looks almost the same as 4. See the pattern? The next iPhone will have a crazy improvement in design too

funny, a US product using metric units. I wonder why doesn't the US itself migrate to this wonderful system as well

they have to. they're giving those schematics to the Chinese, which uses metric units. Apple, claiming they are an American company, can't even make their products in America. Istead, Steve Jobs want to source out the labor to the communists, when millions of Americans need jobs. He openly admitted that America has no capability to make the volume of iPhones that the American market demands. what a shame. Apple can't even make their own processors. TSMC just spit on Tim Cooks face when Tim Cook offered the taiwanese money to secure volume production for apple's chip demand, and the taiwanese of course smells shit written all over it, decided to spit on cook's face and said go fuck yourself Apple, we're just doing fine. You have to stay in line for our fab services just like the rest. Apple screws Samsung when Samsung provides chips for the iPhone. I don't understand these American end consumers dislike Samsung so much. Majority of the iPhone parts is foreign, the manufacturing is foreign. In short, the iPhone is a foreign product.

Do you know , there is a Worldwide Agreement signed by all countries , that Metric is the Standards and all countries have to adopt it, The treaty called Treaty of the Meter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metre_Convention and this is a very important document for that: THE UNITED STATES AND THE METRIC SYSTEM http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&ved=0CDcQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nist.gov%2Fpml%2Fwmd%2Fmetric%2Fupload%2F1136a.pdf&ei=Im9UUJDgEKOVyAHu3oCAAw&usg=AFQjCNEgViBr-E4d4HjoWIOT3Mv4J-azpg but as always the US do not care for the international Community Agreements, they stick with the inches and Foot :)

If apple decides to manufacture iphone and its major parts in US, it will probably be selling it for $1500-$2000 and it can't sell 5% of what it's selling now due to competition, open market policy is the problem

You really have no idea what you are talking about. First of all, what cooperation doesn't outsource their products? I'm not saying it's right, I'm just pointing out that almost everybody does. Ford cars are made in Canada and Mexico, My girlfriend has a Volkswagen Jetta. German car, but where was it made? Mexico. Honda is Japanese, but my Mom's Honda Pilot was made in a Honda manufacturing plant in Canada. So does the fact that iPhones are made in China make Apple a Chinese company? Of coarse not. It says "Designed by Apple in California" for a reason. Apple is based in Cupertino, California. Not to mention the fact that almost all of the manufacturing and assembly of these phones is electronically automated. If they were made here, we would significantly reduce the number of unemployed CNC machines, but how many people? Not nearly as many as you seem to imagine. What, are Chinese workers spending hours polishing the chamfered edge around the glass? No, a machine does it to much higher tolerances in a much shorter time than any person ever could. And I would also like to point out that it is only their small portable devices that are made in china. I'm not sure where the iMacs and Macbooks are made, but I know their big MacPro Desktop towers are made in the USA. Apple really is an American Company.

you gotta be kidding right? why do you think Apple stick with the iPhone 4 design? that's because they have nothing new to bring to the table. Samsung has a pretty extensive design patent and Apple saw these. Apple is going to stick with this brick design because every other design for the rectangle has been patented. Oh maybe they can go use the tear drop design on the 5S

TEAR Drop design does look good, but it doesn't a symbol of or icon of anything! Unlike slide to unlock. Also you can find it from Cydia!
