  1. No idea why this was even posted. Maybe we should post pics of people’s shopping carts and have a referendum on whether they are buying too much nosh?

  2. why noy just order it online like i did?
    got mine already… i can read my emails better with the large screen.
    such major innovation. i definitely would have waited for a few days in line to get it on release date. i was barely functioning with that 4 inch screen… my life is so peaceful that i have this awesome new invention of a 4.7 inch screen. now i gotta get in line to buy some esrogim….

  3. Theres no pirkei avos”dont get the latest iphone” there is however “viahavta leraycha kamocha” and according to Hillel thats the core of judiasm…. food for thought for all the self rightous indignation out there. Just relax.

  4. Lakewood scoop, im afraid this ones on you! Writing “Your Thoughts?” is going to open up- not a discussion- but ppl putting down eachother. I personally think iphone is a huge waste of money and would never line up to get the latest one…BUT it is not for me to judge others. Live and let live and lets premote positive speech esp this time of year, perhaps?!!!

  5. If you’re not allowed to have Internet why would u want a I phone also since when do owe do bnei torah have money for these things what about tuition for their kids

  6. Jack this article was posted for a reason why are you taking it so personal in today’s day in age where yeshiva tuitions mortgages medical insurance food and utility bills are so high who has this kind of money to throw out on a I phone this article is a eye opener it shows where people’s values are

  7. Re:”that is a real nebach..its horrible how everyone is so into their gashmius and have to be the 1st to have it”. It’s too bad you can’t see the hypocrisy in boys all asking to marry into money and people papering their affairs to appear in need of govt assistance when it comes to someone else willing to wait in line to buy something they went using money they earned.

  8. To elul: I don’t have an iphone. I can’t afford it. I don’t know why I can’t afford it after all we’re baal habatim. Oh right, now I remember. We don’t receive any gov’t programs, we don’t get any chinuch discounts and we don’t have support from family. All this comes out of our pockets and at the end we’re left with less than you. We are struggling the same as many kollel yungeleit and chinuch families. I know many kollel/chinuch families who have things we don’t have including an iphone.
