  • Apple’s Gold iPhone 5S revealed to be jokingly called the “Kardashian”


    Apple employees supposedly had several humorous nicknames for the gold iPhone 5S which as many of you know was released this refresh as the new color option. Of the nicknames, one of the more entertaining ones was “The Kardashian Phone.” The nickname was in honor of the socialite Kim Kardashian as revealed by Nick Bilton of The New York Times and later corroborated by Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch. According to Panzarino:

    We confirmed the nickname with our sources. Yes, we asked this question of our sources.
    Unsurprisingly, Kardashian herself was among those who obtained the gold iPhone 5S and boasted about it on Twitter.

    As many of you already know, Apple introduced the changed up color options with its flagship iPhone model this year for the first time offering the new gold option. The iPhone 5S actually doesn’t come in black and instead is available in gold, white and “space gray.” Early indications point toward the gold iPhone 5S being a smash hit, with availability for the device showing up as extremely limited in what is presumably strong demand.

    Did any of you get “The Kardashian Phone?”

      Actually if you want to be correct, Kim had her iPhone 5 customized to be gold and black... So she kind of started the trend. On a design, and fashion side, people should probably take her more seriously.

      No....no they should not. People like Kim Kardashian aren't trend setters. Teams of people in the background you will never hear or see are those who pick out items, design items and style the person in front of the camera. Kim and her sisters are moronic gold mines for others you'll also never hear or see and will be discarded at the drop of a hat for the next gold mine.

      These pseudo-celebrities that have become famous for doing nothing, working at nothing and achieving nothing, should be banned from reproducing.

      Hahahaha! I'm guessing not!

      I'm w/ fiedhlm, though, BUT 'the people' are what have made her what she is (or anyone else, for that matter). It's our fault they are idolized. Our standards for what's cool and not cool are so backwards and inside out that it doesn't even surprise me anymore when ignorance becomes popular for being ignorant (i.e. Duck Dynasty, Teen Moms, "What Does the Fox Say")!
