So, let me show you what the iPhone can do. If i just load this app up...oh, wait, it's crashed. Nevermind I'll get another one from over her...oh, we only brought this one to show? Err...
The iPhone - has half the stuff other modern 3G phones has for twice the price!

The new version of the BlackBerry ----- It has all the features and a touch screen, the only difference is it just can't call or receive any calls. The only useful thing that it can do is take up space in your pocket.
The iPhone = phonesize×2 + touchscreen -- networkconnection + a$59cap (:

I spent my whole life developing something this amazing, OK? So stop telling me how much better Bill's products are, and why mine suck! I'm trying to make a living here, and its people like you that make good products like this fail! So... please buy it...
This is just like the Microsoft Surface, only its slower, has less features, and costs more.
