Without knowing anything else about your problem, it sounds like you have a wild process (on an iphone?! unpossible!!) It can happen. Unfortunately Google bought Sparrow, so I wouldn't expect an update any time soon and probably not too much feedback from devs, either.

Do you find your phone is running hot at all during the day? Do you have any connectivity issues? Did you migrate from a previous phone's backup?

I don't get the iOS 6 maps hate. We have been in the adirondacks the past 2 days without a hiccup other than running into a closed road. Hell, it even prompted us we would have to park and then wall 200ft to get to the lake we drove to. Sure enough... Parked and walked down to it. It got us to a remote lake no one else was at. No issues at all even with no service in areas...

Not all of the mapping data is perfect. Apple maps data is less perfect.

My office has little to no reception and whenever I emerge from the cave my phone only has Edge with faltering service that cuts out of every few minutes. I'm thinking get the SIM replaced, but I'm not sure. Anyone else experience this?

I'm guessing previous phones on the same network weren't having issues? Mine has no reception issues so far.

You do a lot of assuming. No where did I say the jailbreak community revolves around one person. All I said was, the top jail break guy was hired by apple.

The iOS6 iPhone 5 has NOT been "Untethered" jailbroke. Find me an article where it's been successful.

Not trying to troll(honestly)--how are the aluminum parts holding up against normal usage? Is the scratching/chipping really a problem?

I have this same issues at work. Have to either turn on airplane mode for a minute or reboot phone to get it to pick up the 4G network. Otherwise it does exactly what yours does. AT&T and Apple store geeks have no solution except to say might get fixed in an update. Lame answer.

I have no case on mine and I use it normally. Keep it in my front pocket by itself. Hook it up in the car and drop it in the cup holder and then set it on my desk or nightstand the rest of the time. I have no scuffs or discolorations and only two extremely small marks on the bezel. Maybe I am lucky.

Mine looks perfect still. I got the white one. I also have worked the last 20 days in a transmission manufacturing plant, spending all of my time on the plant floor. Impressed with how it has held up so far.

Samsung would have you believe that iphones are for old people, but the numbers say something different.

Quote:
Does Android skew towards a younger demographic? The numbers might surprise you. According to comScore, 52.4% of all Android users are aged 35 years or older. That is five percentage points higher than the iPhone. Near 55% Android tablets users are also older than 35.


All the partisan crap aside, very interesting stats.

While i'm an Android supporter, I think associating iOS as being "so easy to use, a grandma can do it" is a bit risky for Samsung/Android. Even bone-stock Android is not the most user friendly when compared to Apple. And that's the thing, Apple prides (any Apple operating system) for being easy to use and that's why I think Android has struggled to gain adoption traction at first--it was simply not streamlined or easy to use. ICS and JellyBean have come a long way from their earlier cousins in all areas of functionality, design, and usability.

Satire for all the douchebags here in OT that really care way too much about what other people spend their money. Since OT cares so much, I had to oblige with the right choices.

I have an iPhone 5, a couple Toyotas, and a MINI. Definitely not OT approved. The MINI might be. Nah, it is an overpriced image accessory that only sheeple buy and I could have forced my wife to buy an Ecoboost F-150 instead.

Yeah, I have convinced now seven members of my family to switch to an iPhone, just because it is easier to use. I think that is a big reason it is so popular, because the general population doesn't care so much for all the fancy features and clock speed of android.

Is it a big deal? That's up to you. If you don't want it to ever show any signs of wear, you should put it in a case.

Straight out of the box? Yes it's a big deal.

Weeks/months of use? No.

Yep. Mom was due up for an upgrade and I persuaded her to get the iPhone because I knew deep down she wouldn't like the Android.

Apple Has Quietly Started Tracking iPhone Users Again, And It's Tricky To Opt Out

Apple's launch of the iPhone 5 in September came with a bunch of new commercials to promote the device.

But Apple didn't shout quite so loud about an enhancement to its new mobile operating system, iOS 6, which also occurred in September: The company has started tracking users so that advertisers can target them again, through a new tracking technology called IFA or IDFA.


Quote:
Previously, Apple had all but disabled tracking of iPhone users by advertisers when it stopped app developers from utilizing Apple mobile device data via UDID, the unique, permanent, non-deletable serial number that previously identified every Apple device.

For the last few months, iPhone users have enjoyed an unusual environment in which advertisers have been largely unable to track and target them in any meaningful way.

In iOS 6, however, tracking is most definitely back on, and it's more effective than ever, multiple mobile advertising executives familiar with IFA tell us. (Note that Apple doesn't mention IFA in its iOS 6 launch page).

Users can switch off that targeting, but it's tricky, as we discovered a couple of days ago. Although at least iOS 6 users are able to turn off tracking, which they weren't before.

Here's how it works.

IFA or IDFA stands for "identifier for advertisers." It's a random, anonymous number that is assigned to a user and their device. It is temporary and can be blocked, like a cookie.

When you look at an app, or browse the web, your presence generates a call for an ad. The publisher's site that you're looking at then passes the IFA to the ad server. The advertiser is then able to know that a specific iPhone user is looking at a specific publication and can serve an ad targeting that user. IFA becomes particularly useful, for instance, if an ad server notices that a particular IFA is looking at a lot of different car sites. Perhaps that user is interested in buying a new car. They'll likely start seeing a lot of car ads on their iPhone.

More importantly, IFA will allow advertisers to track the user all the way to "conversion" — which for most advertisers consists of an app download. Previously, advertisers had no idea whether their ads actually drove people to download apps or buy things. Now IFA will tell them.

The IFA does not identify you personally — it merely provides a bunch of aggregate audience data that advertisers can target with ads.

Tracking is on by default


The new iPhone operating system comes with three things that make tracking easier for advertisers and reduce the likelihood that you'll opt out.
iOS 6 comes in a default "tracking on" position. You have to affirmatively switch it off if you do not want advertisers to see what you're up to.
The tracking control in iPhone's settings is NOT contained where you might expect it, under the "Privacy" menu. Instead, it's found under "General," then "About," and then the "Advertising" section of the Settings menu.
The tracking control is titled "Limit Ad Tracking," and must be turned to ON, not OFF, in order to work. That's slightly confusing — "ON" means ads are off! — so a large number of people will likely get this wrong.

Those three factors combined mean that a huge proportion of iPhone users are unlikely to ever opt out of tracking.

"It's a really pretty elegant, simple solution," says Mobile Theory CEO Scott Swanson. "The biggest thing we're excited about is that it's on by default, so we expect most people will leave it on."

(His take on IFA's capabilities was confirmed by two other mobile ad execs at rival companies.)

Again, IFA doesn't identify you as a person to advertisers. What it does do, however, is provide advertisers with "a really meaningful inference of behavior," Swanson says. "We haven't had access to that information before."

Things like this should be user opt-in, not automatically opt-in. I'm guessing we will never see it this way due to lobbyist.
