While I find it foolish to go into debt for anything other than a home, I do
think that 'choose between iphone and healthcare' was one of the most
idiotic things chaffetzz ever said.
No, according to RanchHand; I can think of 1000's of better users for
While I am not sure about going into debt, I do know that my iPhone, with Blue
Tooth Keyboard and apps like Pages and Numbers and Documents and Evernote has
completely replaced by home computer. I used my computer for taxes,
and have not turned it on since. So spending money for memory and
portability and usability on a iPhone saves me money by not needing a less
convenient computer. I get why they are doing it, and for some it
makes sense. A cheap $100 "smart phone" doesn't offer the usability
that I need.
I wonder how many of these 28 million Americans "can't afford"
healthcare, or complain about the high cost of housing? Going into
debt for a cell phone? smh
This just goes to show that millions of Americans are clueless about how to
manage their money. You can buy a perfectly adequate smart phone for under $100.
Going into debt for an iPhone is incontrovertibly foolish, a great way to end up
eating PB&J for dinner every night during your golden years.
"In total, the study found 187 million Americans trusted Google and Apple
with their personal data over the government."Naivete' is a
blissful existence, until stuff happens that you don't like. Then, you can
blame "the Russians".
