Apple release ceremonies used to be genuinely newsworthy events, showcasing impressive and innovative new technology that confirmed, in the eyes of many, that the company was far ahead of its rivals and justified the hefty price tags of its products.

These days? Not so much. To the average person, Apple's pricing seems unrealistic compared to its competitors, which have caught up and in some cases overtaken Apple in product innovation. The pomp and ceremony accompanying these release events has perhaps lost its sheen to all but the most loyal fans, and instead of being met with awe, they are instead the target of derisive memes.

With the announcement of the iPhone 11 just recently, the memes have been flowing thick and fast. The main target of most fun has been the unusual design of the phone's camera - featuring three large lenses - which has been compared to everything from a stovetop to a coconut. Can't imagine what I mean? Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Yep. If you want to blow that much money, buy something cheaper and give the rest to a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.

When will people get this. Products in the USA never include tax/VAT on their display prices, where as in Europe the price always includes VAT. In the USA the sales tax is only added when making the payment. Mos states have sales taxes between 3% - 11% (5 states don't even have a sales tax, so there you pay what you see). The UK has a 20% VAT rate. So the adjusted price would be $839 (680 GBP). That's still 49 GBP more expensive in the UK, this however is often attributed to custom fees, transport costs and overall market price adjustments, which then makes up the final price of 729 GBP. You can argue if the 49 GBP extra is justified or not, however in the end it's really not that big of a difference and it all depends on your countries/states taxes and not Apple.

I doubt it. Apple sold overpriced crap well before he died. I just don't understand people who admire him for being some sort of a tech god/ guru. I've always admired him for being a savvy businessman- he created a brand. People pay for the logo and name, not for the good build quality or technical features.
