I was an iPhone fan when they first came out. I remember standing in the phone shops, looking at the Android phones running the laggy Gingerbread and wondering why anyone would want to buy a POS like that.

Then I ran into antenna-gate while I was trying to get a job. Eventually I told callers that I had an iPhone so if the call ended suddenly it was because of that, and not because I'd just hung up on them. As soon as my contract was up I moved to Android.

I'm sure it's fast and simple to use, but ultimately it's a phone. And if I can't make calls on it, then it's going in the bin.

I was in Cuba earlier this year. They seem to be doing OK for themselves.

Sure, there are towns outside of Havana and Trinidad where there isn't a lot to do, but I didn't see any real evidence of extreme poverty.

As far as I could see, the only thing the embargo is doing is preventing (most) Americans from visiting the place.

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
