You're completely wrong. Apple does not own the phone. You're buying it on time just like when you buy a car, except you get your car before making a payment vs making payments before getting the phone. If you cancel your upgrade subscription, you keep your phone, meaning it is not a rental.

Comment I can't use much Aspartame without reactions. (Score 1) 630

I used to drink 2-3 44-oz diet pepsi cups every day. I soon was having seizures that sent me to the ER a couple of times. After months of trying to figure out what was causing the problem, I eliminated Aspartame and within 2 weeks all of the symptoms disappeared. So I am glad to see Aspartame being used less. Obviously, diet drinks of any sort are not healthful, for reasons mentioned by Calzones and others above, but it's still good to know market pressure can drive companies to dump FDA-approved additives for what the public experience has determined is a safer alternative.

Amnesty means that you've got to pay a price for having been here illegally, and this bill does that." See the video here:
