    The folks at Rockstar are well known for integrating cool tidbits into their games. In the latest continuation of the Grand Theft Auto series, they made sure to make fun of Apple and their iPhone. Apple, dubbed "iFruit" in the game, is "overpriced" and "minimalistic", while the iPhone "has no buttons" nor "storage capacity", but is all "ego". The screenshots speak for themselves:

    I don't think bashing their products then calling the people that use them 'tossers' is considered a good advertisement. It isn't an ad, but that doesn't mean it isn't hilarious! :laugh:

    I was in my safehouse the other day, turned on the tv and sat back and watched. Its better then real tv. After watching Rockstar tv, i dont think ill ever watch Neighbours or Home & Away again.

    Apple cant sue Rockstar over this matter because Iphones suck.
