The suit-make-a-difference-guy actually has a point, though not in the way that he things.

When two candidates apply for a position, and one of them wear a suit, while the other wear a tshirt and jeans, I am going to appreciate the suit more. It shows that he put _some_ effort into preparation.

You hire the more experience fellow, but with regards to first impressions, suit wins.

That said, a phone does not require the same maintenance or work as a suit. And it is much cheaper. And it is a very unreliable indicator of anything. A suit says something; a phone is just a phone.

It's amazing what poor people will do in order to emulate a pretentious sense of wealthyness that needs to be validated by those around them. It's very easing telling the actual rich people from poorfags like these. The truly wealthy just are. There is a distinct air of comfort surrounding people like this because they know they don't need to prove anything to anyone, nor would they ever consider something as laughable as a fucking phone that people making below minimum wage can afford on a contract as an indication of how much money you have. The ones who aren't used to money are the ones prone to waste it all and get into massive debts just so they can afford these glorified placebos because they aren't actually used to having money. This reminds me of law school. I had a classmate whose father is a literal millionaire and yet you could never tell by simply looking at her. Meanwhile, there was "that guy" in the class who always made sure to take every single note in his ipad and it was always apple this apple that when it came to him. I felt pity when I first visited his house and noticed how fucking poor he actually was.

>In Canada, a month to month no-contract plan is literally only $10/month cheaper than a premium on-contract plan.
Yeah they lowered the BYOD discount.

But you can find the same plan cheaper at other carriers if you BYOD

A rogers 1GB plan with a GS8 for 289 costs $105/month (total cost is 289 + 105x 24 = 2809)
a koodo plan with 1GB costs 55/month (total cost is 1035 device cost + 55 x 24 = 2355 )

to sweeten the deal koodo and the other discount carrier are offering both 1-3GB free for 24 months on top of whatever data you have, Bell/Rogers obviously don't care and the extra data is easily going to cost you 20-40/month extra

I'm sitting on an 8GB koodo plan for ~64 bucks a month, its short sighted to get a "free" phone and lose that kind of deal.

The rich person buys the latest thing when they need it. The reason why they're rich in the first place is because they're not wasting money literally every year, when their piece of equipment they bought previously is still functioning perfectly fine. They'll replace it when they need to.

I'm in middle upper class and I find it hilarious. E.g. I'm wearing your h&m tier clothes and driving 6yo car when clubbing and my pick up effectiveness is like 3%. But girls who know my background constantly trying to hop on my d. It never stops to amuse me.

Is there a way to find if someone's a cuck the first 90 seconds of conversation? You know... to not deal with that person to the rest of your life?

>By using a phone with an iconic button, people are telling us something about themselves by using it. They want us to know that they’re an iPhone user.

As much as this sounds like a meme, before Steve's death, Apple was for professionals with IO up your ass. Yeah it was overpriced/expensive, but it was still a superb "creative machine".

Is your father more than a couple years older than 10?
If not, then it wouldn't be very remarkable.

Yeah. That new Mac Pro is something that Steve would have taken a shit in and handed back to the design team. And he'd be fucking pissed at what's happened to the pro software division. Knowing him, he'd even rage at how they dropped the Airport Extreme without a mesh network replacement. The dude actively loved tech. Cook and Ive just love money.
