I can only agree. WTF is up with the delay, Apple? I’m going Android I think.
(The only reason people are saying the 4S is shit is because they really honestly though the 5 was coming out. But Apple said September. They didn’t say which year.)

Apple has never said that the iPhone 5 would be coming out. Point me to a single statement coming straight from Apple that said they were going to be releasing the iPhone 5.

wasnt it obvious that there will be a facelift of the 4 before they release 5?

Am I missing something?

If they hade called it iPhone 5, what had differentiated it from being what everyone wanted?

I don’t even lika iPhone and do not know the specifics, but it seems silly to whine that your favorite phone got decidedly more powerful.

@Bert November of last year the rumors started it would be Q3-Q4 2011.
Technjournal and a number of other sites accurately predicted that an announcement would come anywhere between June and August, but all were claiming that the release would be Q4 of 2011, and almost all the telcos here were claiming (and hyping) a September release up until about a week ago. I’m not sure where the telcos got their info from though – as I saw the rumours it was Q4, which is anywhere from October to December anyway.
And the worst part? Some telcos were offering preorders of the 5.

With Jobs dead this strip suddenly feels somewhat unfunny…

Wow, this could have been timed better, but I guess the comic title is a fitting epitaph in itself.
RIP Steve

Now look what you’ve done, you tell apple to fuck off and then Steve dies.
