How appropriate that the OnePlus Two was launched in virtual reality because with that dumb invite system they have, getting your hands on one will be virtual too :) I'll add the launch video link once I vet it for anything verboten.

Because they forgot to put a headphone jack on their latest model?

Among other things, yes.

It looks as if Apple died with Steve Jobs. He was a visionary who surrounded himself with yes-men. Now the yes-men are running the company. Yes-men with no vision.

Selfish, self-centered yes-men with no vision other than US dollar signs floating in front of their eyes and away to Ireland :)

So, tomorrow a transcontinental total solar eclipse will be visible across the United States.

Tomorrow, the new version of Android will be launched too.

I think I have a guess as to what it will be called.

So is anyone here willing to shell out US$1000+ for an iPhone X or a Samsung Note 8?

iPhone X is supposed to be "the future of smartphones", but it has a screen with an obnoxious and gratuitous bite taken out of the top, and Apple had to introduce several hacky workarounds to the iOS user paradigm to make the X work without a home button. If Steve Jobs were alive at the product introduction, he'd have probably run onstage several times and cracked skulls with a space gray aircraft-grade aluminum baseball bat.

Indeed. After that face detection fail by Craig Federighi during the demo, Jobs would have physically thrown him from the roof of the theatre now named after him. An utter disgrace.
