BACK TO SCHOOL ?????
« on: September 10, 2014, 10:31:23 pm »

Was listening to Radio One this lunchtime and the news.............an article came on about the new Apple s6/s7 and new apple Watch..........

the  journalist interviewed a few people (all from the US of A) and introduced the statement from a self confessed Apple Geek

and I quote..........."yah!, I really  like that new Apple S6 with it's 5.5 inch screen................it's a whole two inches bigger than the 4.7 inch screen on the ol' S5 cell phone".......???

think someone needs to go back to school for some extra maths, I reckon !!??? %% %% %% %%

 :-)

5.5"x 5.5"= 30.25 square inches
4.7"x 4.7"= 22.09 square inches

30.25 minus 22.09 = 8.16 square inches ...or 36.993979% larger  :D

A fairly original quote that I found regarding Apple releases -

"As an insomniac I'm looking forward to the release of iphone 6.
When the iphone 5 was released I'm not sure why but I started counting the people in the queue at the Apple Store, and goodness me, I had my best sleep in ages."
