if anything, apple is a testament to the importance of industrial design and simplicity of use... i mean whatever, but when you have developed a company sporting 760B in cash you have prob hit the market right. just saying. lol

have used pretty much all platforms at this point. Ms ( a nightmare) linux (cool but small) and unix (mac). Apple just gets most things. not everything is perfect but they get close to it, hence the popularity.
The only thing microsoft does right is Office. but even that is slipping because apple just goes in for the kill when it comes to personal computing.

Then when business owners like their home computer (mac) more than their business suite (windows), and it comes time to upgrade the business..... i see ms slipping even more . they just dont get it when it comes to software engineering. everything you do there is some blaring prompt, tutorial, ugly GUI, the list is endless.. droid is better but still cant stand them either. you can give me pretty much any task in windows and i will do it more efficiently with a unix based system. i really actually do have zero desire to ever purchase an android or microsoft product ever really. also my brother is a comp sci for apple , and i get to see first hand the quality they demand.

Holy swing batman

It's Google's birthday. Their doodle tells me so.
As usual, when you click on the doodle, it takes you to a pre-defined search result list. But since they control the sorting of that list, guess what's on top?

You have to calibrate it manually and it saves your preference. Say you are in a medium lit room, change your brightness to where you want it. Now when you're in a place with medium brightness the screen is going to change to where you had it calibrated to.

Nah... Same iOS as always, simple & clean.

If you hate it so much, why the hell have you kept the iPhone for 5 years? He may be a tool, but this comment kinda makes you look dumb-You hate something, but you still continue to use it year after year

Did you ever use the Mapquest app? Its free and has voice turn by turn. It's worked really well for me. If you have, what do you like better about MotionX?

I can't stand iPhone idiots who think their phone is perfect

iOS still hasn't fixed notifications.

Lockscreen info? Non existent

Why is it 72 degrees for 4+ years now?!

I can't even move my nudes from camera roll into a new folder. Move not copy chase - move

The redesign is nice and is a much better than the 4s. There is much more packed into this new phone besides just the larger display. It's very fast. Much thinner/lighter. 50% more resistant to drops.... etc not even mentioning LTE.

My only complaint is Apple maps. However, I completely understand why Apple needed to break ties with Google over this. The Apps still functions well, just not as detailed.
Meh, I will get the 4s as I don't like the 5 for a few reasons.

The larger size. I have small hands, the main reason I haven't gotten an android is the size. The 4s is exactly what I want, faster internals, better cam, better Cell antenna, not huge.

The fact it's LTE doesn't really justify the new size. If I wanted an LTE phone that was larger than the 4 I would of saved money and gotten a GS3.

Don't even get me started on the damn power cord and having to buy adapters for everything now.

Apple is successful because they have built a cult. The Samsung commercial's hit the nail on the head, Apple is more of a fashion statement than a functional piece of equipment.

your hands cant be smaller then mine. cmon dude, bs reasons not to upgrade. and im pretty sure the iphone is plenty functional for a normal human being. sure it wont pluck your eyebrows and brush your hair, but thats pretty ridiculous to say it isnt functional

No. And from what I can tell, iCloud is nothing more than a "hey my computer broke and I need to sync my iPhone" solution. In other words, it backs up your contact data, text messages, email, and calendar.. It also helps move photos and music from machine to iphone... but it only does it over wifi and while your phone is locked... so you can't use it to access any of that data in a useful fashion.

That's why I was bummed after upgrading iPhoto and to Mountain Lion.. I assumed I'd be able to take pictures or music, load them to this "cloud" and access them remotely.. no such luck.

Solution is to use FlickR for photos and learn to live with music that you can store on your device (or use pandora). Once jailbroken, Grooveshark becomes a solution again but until that point, I'm not sure what else we can do..

Oh, and even from a web browser, you can't access icloud photos... lame

Have you held a new one in person? I'm not a large guy, but the iPhone 5 isn't really much bigger than the 4/4S.

Compare it to a GSIII. I laughed when my coworker pulled that thing out of her purse. I might as well just bring along my iPad. The size of the new iPhone 5 is not really an issue. The other stuff might be, but not really the size.

But yeah, the new connector is annoying as hell.
