    Good for Lenovo. I'm a huge fan of their Thinkpad line of laptops. Mostly for not fucking with them when they took over from IBM.

    I can't believe apple released the 8 and the X. Mick what could possibly be the business reasoning behind that?

    Literally no one is gonna get the 8

    The same crappy strategy behind pretty much every business playbook that Jobs and Apple defied with his vision for what Apple was supposed to be: diversification of the product portfolio. So just more of the same we've seen from Tim Cook since the iPhone 5c was introduced.

    The $1000 price point is as empty as they come. That's the biggest "splash" of any new spec on the phone. It's 100% exploitative of the keeping-up-with-the-Kardashians mentality. This is their plan for dealing with the fact that new generations of phones basically don't really matter anymore, as they're insignificant, and not at all worth the cost of a generational upgrade; in fact, I would argue they aren't even worthwhile of an upgrade over phones that are 3 generations old. For the typical owner of an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus there really is just no worthwhile material advantage to spending money on an iPhone X upgrade. Best argument would be for those who want a waterproof phone, and can't stand the Otterbox or Lifeproof cases.

    The iPhone 8 and iPhone X are ho-hum disappointments, IMO, if you ignore that all the rumors the past few months leading up to this launch were indicating said disappointment.
    You can't hate on the Note 4.

    That one gets the nod from many tech nerds as the greatest single release in smartphone history. That and the Samsung Galaxy S III are the best Android handsets ever made relative to the competition at the time. The Note 4 is still one of the best overall phones on the market considering all of its capability (ex. the now industry-wide defunct IR Remote). That's an incredible achievement.

    I'm not sure what the consensus on Apple phones would be. I would estimate the iPhone, obviously, as the godfather, but after that, probably the iPhone 5s. I can't remember any bad news surrounding that model. That phone was pretty much flawless.
