I like the iPhone, but…

I certainly got a lot of abuse from Apple fanboys for my post 51 reasons not to buy the iPhone. I got called: a “f**king idiot”, “pickiest man I have ever met” (if I was picky I would point out that you haven’t met me) and “a dick”, and these are a just a fraction of tirades from fanatic fanboys which I could post.
