    I seem to get this a lot by people who think they're mature/cool. What could I say in retaliation?

    I hate people like that.

    They'll step on my Fallens and say "It's just a shoe"

    Hit their feet on the leather on my Bimmer and say "It's just a car"

    I was thinkin about that earlier...when will they freaking stop with "It's just a____"

    Just a MacBook Pro? Just a house?

    I think we can all agree that the iPhone has a few more functions than that. So it's not "just a phone".

    "You're right" would be the correct response.

    Basically they are morons because it is so obviously not just a phone. There is so much more to this device than just a phone! The actual phone is a very small part, and one of the least used features for many of us, on this device. It is a handheld computer, not JUST a phone. If it were just a phone it would not be so popular, and it would strictly make phone calls and thats it.

    Step 1: Agree, because it is only a phone.
    Step 2: Stop worrying what other people think.
    Step 3: ???
    Step 4: Profit.

    Currently, very comparable to the iPhone 4.

    Update: The final quote was actual written by "Tom" rather than Steve Jobs, according to an update by Boy Genius Report.

    Read front page, he didn't.

    Because if people can't make a call then it's an iPod Touch. IOW, a Brick. :rolleyes:

    You could just be the bigger person and let it go. No need for "retaliation".

    Yes, but a phone is one of the things you use the most every day, and this does more than make phone calls, so I use it more. Why not have the best phone and be enthusaistic about it?

    My response...

    "Then don't get one."

    Why should I care?

    Baffle them with some representative realism;

    "Ceci n'est pas un phone!"



    Or just agree with them. Because they're right.

    It really is just a phone though. As great of a phone as it may be, it's not some magical product that will open the gates of heaven for you.

    Pull out a $100 bill and smoke it. It's only a $100 bill.
