the big deal is apple could turd in a box and sell it for $500 and some people probably would wank themselves off to it.

brb, wanking.

Apple designed their own SoC on this one, moving even further towards vertical integration. It allows a tailored instruction set for their application, giving it better performance and more importantly, better battery life. Don't be surprised to see Apple ditch Intel 3-5 years down the road when they start fabbing their own chips.

Too bad iOS is terrible.

I've had the regular 4 for 2 years now and was gonna upgrade because that's what I do after a couple years just so the hardware keeps up with the iOS and web and whatnot. Same with laptops after 4 years or so. It's just a cycle. Not doing it this time, just keeping the old one another year at least. Doesn't seem slow at all and battery life is still great. There's things I like about the new one but NOT another $400 worth of things.

Same reason people buy newer subarus or any car every few years. Incremental improvements and built in familiarity. The things just work. And a new one today costs the same as a new one two or three or five years ago. Keeps the decision simple unless you regret buying one in the first place. I really don't understand the folks who buy the new model every year, but some folks do that with cars too. There's no good reason for either unless work pays for it.

but those people have ALWAYS been annoying. alot of us just like a simple easy to use phone with a standard OS with a high level of compatibility, Hell, my forester lets me plug in my iphone and use it with the factory radio. The app store is massive. I Would not probably want a macbook because i prefer windows for all the reasons listed above, but their turds in a box are perfect for people like me who cant stand the flooded market of umpteen thousand different android phones.

Wonder why people who use Windows PC's exclusively don't get the same scorn as iPhone users. Linux is way more customizable and Mac is supposed to be better for media. It's like the iPhone is the equivalent of IE.

The big deal is apple makes a phone a year and surpasses everyone's technology. Everyone else makes 10+ trying to catch apples customer base. Samsung is releasing a galaxy s4 in 5 months to catch up to the iPhone. That is the same when it comes to windows. 2 years late and doesn't wok as good. Trying to copy off apple.

Seriously though, I'm glad they're pushing on the hardware front. They singlehandedly pushed the market towards higher quality displays.


Still, iOS is garbage.

The superiority is as overblown as the hate. They push the technology and concede the tech-feel. iOS works. They aren't groundbreaking on every level but their stuff works. And it appeals with its simplicity while making legitimate use of its advancements. You can be an idiot and use it or a techie-nerd and make use of it. How is that bad?

How is designing and arranging your own interface superior to people who study HMI and usability for a living? Why would you bother with all that on a phone? I know it's cool for nerds and straight up fans of cellphones, but that doesn't mean that exceptional hardware with a predesigned, well working interface makes you a sheep. That's like making fun of Honda and Toyota buyers because they aren't enthusiast cars. Not everyone has to be an enthusiast to appreciate a bit of performance or efficiency.

Apple fans and apple haters are as irritating as democrats and republicans. Life is compromise. And opinions.

(I'm only still in this discussion because I'm drunk and off tomorrow.-- 5 yr anniversary, woo)

Actually he's trolling. His gf prob has an iPhone if he doesn't. iOS isn't for everyone. Some people liked Motorola phones even though they could've bought nokias. It's just an opinion. He's conceded the hardware is good.

yeah and my bros 4s runs out of ram and kills random **** all the time. he's always out of battery on it too, but that's probably his fault.

that andoid reboot and need for custom rom crap ended years ago, Adam. most android phones are real good out of the box. but really, i can't wait for the return to "feature" fones. got a sony from like 2005 that has an aluminum body, solid as hell, does everything you want, data, tethering, real nice camera(cybershot model) way smaller and thinner than smartphones, and, get this: battery lasts like two weeks! i just ignored mobile phones long enough to never get used to t9 for input. hardware and software pretty much doesn't matter anymore, on any of them.

and the "macs are better at graphics and media" ended when they killed the powerPC processors(made by IBM) and started using PC hardware.

You have to be trolling at this point. It's the only logical conclusion, I can't see why anyone would have such a blind fervor for ANY tech company. I also feel bad for anyone that pigeonholes themselves into only buying technology products from a single brand.

I agree.

That said, their marketing rhetoric is tiresome. Would you buy a Subaru if all their marketing was about how "awesomely innovative this new Subaru is and how your panties will drop on first use"? Also, nothing they tout as innovative is innovative, none of their patents are real innovation and are being used as ways to elbow competitors out of the market.

Since when is one UI the best possible answer for everyone? Malcolm Gladwell has some wicked hair, but he's 100% on point. Consumer choice is pretty effin' sweet!



Anyways, I'm typing this on a Macbook Pro. It's a pretty good package in size and display quality, which is why I purchased it to begin with. If Apple could patent "we've put high contrast displays in laptops!", I bet they would. In the future, I'm not sure I would purchase another one now that there are other options, but we'll see how the market pans out.
