Demeter: Malicious destruction/damage of property with absolutely no sense of remorse just to prove a (pointless) point. What a freaking douche.

I think the reputation went to pants when all that patent suing drama went down really.
Nah, people (including me) have hated Apple ever since the 80s for various reasons, but I remember the hate when the iPhone came out, and then the iPad too, and every version of the iPhone since. It seems to be directly related to the share price of Apple :)
A5X: This is a new video, no bending before the video is shot, but does show that doesn't take much.
Actually this video is making change my mind about the 6+ that I have on order. It might be going back to Apple before I open the 6+ (cancel button has disappeared from my order placement).
No, people are justifiably suspicious of Apple's behaviour over phone defects. The Iphone 4 arrived with an antenna grounding problem - Apple at first denied problem existed, then decided that affected customers were at fault for holding the phone the wrong way
Stuff sometimes happens. Stuff will continue to happen into the future. It's not a weird conspiracy based on stock prices. Companies get things wrong sometimes, news at 11.
Still seems weird to me that a mainstream tech reviewer could bend a phone, without meaning to, just through normal use.
1eStar: I walk into a car dealer ship. I crash the car into a power pole outside. I hurt my head. I'm not going to buy one now cos it bent so easily. Especially since the company is making profit selling this car. How dare they. Oh and the model they made three years ago was a dog too.
