Being that it is in Russia, it would be fitting if this giant iPhone was a Product Red edition.

Just like we celebrate Christopher Columbus for being a murderer we celebrate Jobs for being a SOB arrogant snob.

Maybe a new Holiday in tribute to the late Jobs is next?

It's great! A 6' sculpture in the courtyard of some apartment building in Russia, who cares! It's amusing!

The year my boyfriend worked at the Apple Store, he sold a lot of iPhone 3G's to Russians. "I vould like 10 iPhone, da?"
For what it's worth.

I'm not sure anybody does, except for the Petro$$ that paid for it.

You're not disgusted by the fact that all iPhones have been made by chinese communists?

I don't even understand how this happened. Someone "designed" it, and it was supposed to look like an iPhone, which would require no actual original design at all. Yet they still somehow messed it up.

Nice job negating your "stale opinions" rant with one of your own.
As I'm sure you (and certainly your elders) know, Communism does not permit legal gambling, and wants to eradicate it. Yet China acquired Macau in 1999. No signs of it slowing down. That's a motive of capitalism, as long as the government gets to control what gambling occurs, it's willing to benefit. It's one of my Political Science professor's favorite arguments to make about economic policy double standards that betray political motives.

(And with that, I'm probably already off-topic enough to get bumped to the Politics forum. Reply at your own risk. )

To all the people who think that it's stupid that the screen is that small, let me break it down for you:

You are suppose to interact with this screen. How stupid you would look trying to interact with a screen that starts at your ankles? The screen size and position is a result of good UX.

Well let me pose this back to you then. Could they not have had two screens. One that you interact with at the top and then another butted up against it under it so that the "appearance" was of a full screen iPhone.

Personally I don't really care (about what it looks like) - I'm never going to go see it and I find the marketing on their website extremely tacky. But there are ways they could have make it more iPhone-like.

That being said - there's also a greater chance that Apple would have it removed if it were.
