The Register's circle jerk of Apple bashing journos squeals with adolescent delight again!
"Idiot tax" -> sure bubba, but an Android S7, or the eye-roller of the Google Phone that's just a sorry LG parts bin concoction, are even more expensive. And they're 5x slower on JS.
Maybe you haven't noticed, but apple has been taking *a lot* of stick from across the tech commentariat in recent months. You're no longer the hubristic little rebel voice against the sea of Apple yes-men. Move on.
Disclosure: S7 owner.
