    Fox 5 NY reports that the iPhone 5 has a laser keyboard :roll eyes:

    They do a great job reporting don't they!

    Is this really that surprising? I mean, it is Fox News after all.

    Haha, the poor people. They try so hard to be good reporters. Are quality reporters actually that good, or are these people just that bad?

    I figured someone would say that.

    It's the local affiliate. For the most part, regardless of the network, local news affiliates leave much to be desired.

    Anyway, as I recall a certain president of ours was befuddled when someone handed him an iPhone to make a call because he still uses a BlackBerry and didn't know how to use an iPhone.

    Let's just keep phones separate from politics. :)

    it's obvious but interesting how far we have sunk when criticism of a news network is considered political.

    Imagine how many NY'ers will be pissed when they find out it's not what the news said it is.

    Since when has any outlet associated with Rupert Murdoch ever given a rat's a** about facts?

    I'm still LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I'm just waiting to hear people start complaining about the "missing features" after standing in line all week.

    That iPhone would probably cost $2000 unsubsidized LOL

    Good grief! Lazy reporter, and an editor/producer asleep at the wheel. Someone, somewhere in the chain between the location shoot and the actual broadcast should have caught that. Wow.

    Mods Close this thread. It's quickly turning into a bash a news channel thread.

    Considering this is the only video showing this on the internet and that there's no articles on it, I agree.

    Fake.

    I'm not bashing, I'm showing that they didn't take a look at apples website for specs or the keynote for reporting.
