Apple Claims "Plastic Perfected" With iPhone 5C

Apple is a master of showmanship. Often when unveiling new products, Apple will take an existing idea, adapt it, and then sing its merits like it's a whole new innovation. Now Apple is doing the same thing with the iPhone 5C with a video it calls "Plastic Perfected."

While we're quite satisfied with the level of fit and finish on the iPhone 5C, to say it's "plastic perfected" is a title we feel belongs to Nokia's flagship Lumia line.

    Alternate titles include "Cheapness, done right" and "Hey bob get over here, this idiot is buying it".

    And here we go, first say plastic is cheap and then turncoat and copycat the competition with the exact same thing. Hardly surprising the hypocrisy surrounding many of today's brands, shame the brand sheep's blindly follow and buy into everything.

    You...have got to be kidding me. They couldn't even get the color of the "plastic perfected" right. Where's black?

    It ain't perfect until it stops being a pollutant! Away with this drivel and your petty consumerism, Apple!

    I'd also say "How to blur the line between communication device and children's toy" also works. :lol:
