    We noticed you still have ad blocker enabled. By turning it off or whitelisting Forbes.com, you can continue to our site and receive the Forbes ad-lightexperience.

    I'll read it if you copy+paste, but I'm not disabling Ghostery for Forbes.

    Never seen so many ads on one site. Full page ads, pop ups, tracking ads, and now they want you to turn off ad blockers, forget it....

    I'm neither for nor against Forbes; I have no dog in the fight, but any site insisting that their content is so premium that I ought to disable my security measures AND THEN SERVES UP MALWARE. Now there's "a pair" the likes of which I haven't seen in some time.

    Others did too, and they were infected with malware. Did you not read my link?

    I give zero credibility to anyone who uses the word "futureproof" when talking about technology and electronics. Plus, Apple built the SE mostly for people who refused to upgrade to the giant phones. For those customers, the comparisons to the 6 series phones are mostly useless as most of them never used the features of the 6 phones.

    Nope, just the end of it. I'll let someone else challenge the copyright.

    Apple can do no right. If they dont listen to customers then apple is out of touch. If Apple does listen then they are losing their way.

    Make up your mind.

    I think you make the argument that the customers demanded a large phone and apple then provided that, so I agree with the linked article, I don't think it was the SE that changed Apple's thinking.

    You can also say the same thing about cutting/pasting, and multitasking on the iPhone. In both cases, they were features not present, but apple bowed to the wants of its customers.
