WTF

After seeing this article, I had my mind boggled by how much some people are willing to spend on smart phones. Six hundred to a thousand dollars??? O_o WTF? I think more than fifty bucks is asking too much, especially now that Tracfone is selling smartphones for around $20 to $30.

Listen, if you're spending more than $100 for a smartphone, you're getting ripped off. And if you're spending $600 or more on a smartphone, how about you stop throwing your money into this fire and give out to me instead, so I can afford to eat all month long. Because the new iPhone X, at $999, is $100 more than I have to live on every month. If I found an abandoned crate of 48 iPhones X, I could sell one a month on eBay and more than double my income for four years. (Hypothetically. Realistically, I'd be better off selling all of them at once and putting most of that money into savings.)
