(Newser) – The iPhone 5s launch tomorrow marks the beginning of a race—not to see which fanboy can get to the front of the line, but instead to see which hacker can crack Apple’s new fingerprint scanner first. And as of yesterday afternoon, there's money—and even vino—on it.

A fool and his money shall soon part. The creators of this crap is sitting back laughing at you idiots that buy this stuff. You struggle to pay your bills while they rake in the dough. The money you spend on the purchase and monthly service plan. You could have good credit, take a real vacation, help a friend or family member. All so you can pull your little toy out in public and pretend you’re important. You do not have to agree, just multiply the amount you pay a month and by 1,2,3,4,5 years. Now ask yourself, is this really how I want to live my life?

Apple and its closed code have always sucked! While the products have been superior, greed has kept Apple from becoming the worlds most used and sold products, had it not been for the sheer luck of success of the MP3 player, Apple would be a distant last in the tech arena. Even now by treating their vendors like crap when it comes to peripherals most people would know would rather purchase other manufacturer products, The Apple "Holy Grail," iPhones are overpriced garbage. In the long run they will end up on the top of dung hill of expensive useless gadgets. People who insist on the latest, greatest "Apple" have over spent to take a bite of a bitter fruit. Up next? Diks that want to wear a computer around their wrist to tell what time it is?
