Why is there so much craze, hoopla and attention towards the Apple iPhone 5? My RSS feeds is filled with innumerable amount posts about iPhone 5, its comparison with others, its meme’s and related stuff. Just have a look at this subscription EMail from Mashable, 12 out of 15 posts in this mail are about iPhone 5. Why? Just why?Did it change any of the world’s fundamental problems such as poverty, terrorism or corruption? Or is it that much better than its rivals? I don’t think so. Yes, I admire and appreciate it for being beautiful, strong and powerful but it is much pricier than others too. Heck! People are buying it in India for INR 85,000! You are mad guys! The thought of spending over 30K on a phone gives me a feeling of stupidity. You can call this as rant against Apple, and if it is, it is what I feel. I am no iFan or iHater but a true gadget enthusiast with pure common sense.

Last week, I just wanted to know the starting date of Olympic Games 2012 which are to be held in London. I generally use Google but at that point of time, I thought of using Bing for some reason. I searched for the term ‘olympics 2012’ and you can see the search results in Bing. There is not a single mention displaying the starting date of the Olympic Games.Frustrated, I came back to Google and used the same search term. This time, the starting date of the Olympic Games was the first in the search results.There you can see, the difference between Google and others.
