  • Frigging hate flag-wavers and those pricks that turn up a racism rallies with the flag covering their face while they rail at people they don’t think belong here. It’s a piece of rag with icons on it, not an actual piece of the country FFS.

    • It’s a symbol of the country’s values.

      If one of the country’s values is that its flag can’t be burned, the country’s flag *should* be burned.

      • I really hope we don’t end up going down the path of the US and start seeing a lot of houses with flags hanging off of them. Nationalism should be strong enough to tie a country together, not create a bunch of robots with no idea of the damage “full on nationalism” can do to a countries rights and freedoms. I did my time in the Army like a lot of people, but if a war ever started I wouldn’t have been fighting for a colourful rag, I’d be fighting for freedom and the rights therein that are symbolised by said rag, not the actual rag.

  • ITs only the 3/4 Australian flag. Talk to me when we get a 100% Australian flag for now burn away if you think you must.

  • The iPhone headphone jack removal isn’t that big of a deal as everyone is making it out to be tbh. The phone comes with a 3.5mm jack to lightning port adapter as well as a set of lightning port earphones.

    Sure they didn’t make the phone any thinner, but they did add a stereo speaker at the top of the device, a bigger (longer) battery, and a bigger taptic engine. More significantly, the phone is now much more water resistant due to the removal of the 3.5mm jack.
