Hmm... thanks. I wish I get paid to write point-less articles too. And yeah, an iPhone for every person in humanity will lead to world peace.

I'm sure some controversy will start out over the white phone.

What a stupid author. He thinks $13 trillion is what a dollar menu item costs at McDonalds if you ate once a day for 115 years.

Oh come on, that's just silly.

It would buy more than that. Surely, Apple would give a volume discount on that many phones!

:D

And ATT would STILL try to be the only carrier for all of them :rolleyes:

Thankfully people in certain parts of the world consume little if any except for basic sustainance, or their government keeps them masses away from luxuries such as this and keeps them in their palace/underground bunker/space cabin(?).

So people like us can get a new iPhone every year.

god bless America! (gunshots, fireworks, cheers)

699 dollars will buy me an iPhone. There, I just saved you over 12 trillion dollars.
