on one hand, there is this boy playing `pretend` of having a phone in his hand.. escaping from reality (just look at his smile knowuing that he just made his own make-belief phone) and on the other, people commenting and ridiculing him. Being insulted with the caption of IPhone..




i dont think people are being mean to him, nor having a laugh at his expense...its a funny pic thats all...

Lol, did you ever read the article? Its not Spam, its a genuine Article. In Africa kids are dying of hunger, while others want to spend $20.000 in Iphones


To quote a famous religious leader, "I have three things to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases caused by malnutrition. Second, most of you don`t give a sh-t. What`s worse is that you`re more upset about the fact that I said sh-t than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night."



that was only 2 things...whats the 3rd?...why does everyone assume he`s poor...he maybe alot poorer than you reletivly speaking but by the standards of his country he maybe `working class`...also he maybe `rich` in family and friends and community...not everything should be measured in monetery wealth...kid looks happy to me...

My choice of this one or an iPhone. No contest...this one.

If anyone like Apple, their prerogative. It`s prerogative to dislike it and thank God for that!

My first thought was "Awh, poor kid. Someone should get him a real phone."
But, thinking about it, I`m not sure how a real phone would benefit him much anyway.
Someone get that kid a bag of rice and some multi-vitamins!:x

Truth hurts a little too much huh? Crappy phone that can`t get a signal, no Flash, crappy service (and customer service) from AT&T, overpriced phone and service, what`s not to love?
