I like the new iPhone. I am amused by people like tundra’s buddy Carmi, who constantly predict DOOM for Apple, and have been doing it since 1995! It’ll happen eventually, I am sure. I suspect I know where he gets that.
Apple has always had a weird obsession with proprietary cabling, going all the way back to the ADB. I imagine that it’s a permutation of the ‘not invented here’ attitude, but what the hell, if it gets the job done…. I laugh at the critics saying the new dock connector is TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE. LOL, the old dock connector was such a burden too.
I wish they had bumped the storage up on the whole product line though. Although it is still hanging on, the iPod classic hasn’t been updated in years, and they aren’t keeping up with my music library. Online storage sucks, none of the services are adequate and the setup time is measured in geologic time.
I know a kid who is virulently anti-Apple; seriously, it’s like mentioning Obama to thundra. Although the kid readily admits that he’s never actually used a Mac. So he buys the more ‘open’ Android phone, then commences to lard it up with widgets and OS mods, until it is working so poorly that he has to overclock the processor to make it work, which causes it to crap out long before it should. LOL, it’s a much better strategy, I don’t blame Apple for not playing to those kinds of customers. Anecdotally, the people I know who’ve switched to iPhones have never looked back, and generally don’t get wound up about whether the iOS is open enough or not.
Anyway, you’ve all been bad, so it’s VIDEO TIME. And just to aggravate everybody unnecessarily, I am bringing back threaded comments. You all know who to thank.
