Well, we get to watch some really funny parodies, but if you're not an Apple guru, should you care? Well, yes! It turns out; all those techies running out to drop about $600 on the latest and greatest Apple product will be serving the greater good!
Economists expect that iPhone 5 sales could add between a quarter and a half of a percentage point to fourth quarter annualized growth in the nation. Which is just a fancy way of saying the new phone's sales could boost our GDP growth up to $12.8 billion dollars at an annual rate.
So, hooray Apple!
What if, however, one of your Crayola-covered kids gets their sticky little hands on that new iPhone of yours? We may love 'em, but we don't want them ruining our new toys!
Well, worry no more. Your days of sharing are over!
Now your kid can have a device all their own, and we're not talking about the old iPhone 4 you just upgraded from! Toys R Us is selling a tablet designed just for kids, so they can finally stop playing with your iPad! The Tabeo sells for about $150. It has a 7-inch screen, a Wi-Fi connection, and 50 preloaded kids-friendly apps.
What more could your little ones want? Other than a new iPhone 5, of course!
