Even if you weren’t wowed by the new hardware that distinguishes the iPhone 4S from the iPhone 4, you couldn’t fail to be impressed by the introduction of the all-helpful Siri. Or could you? Seems like not everyone is a fan of this killer feature, but why?
It’s tough to think of any other company on the planet that provokes as much love and hate as Apple. With visionary leader, Steve Jobs, sadly gone and an iPhone 4S release rather than a brand spanking new iPhone 5, reports of the fall of Apple are rife.
Oh, technology journalists, you’ve done it again. You’ve managed to over-hype your own false rumors about an upcoming Apple product to such a degree that the product released seems a bit “meh.” Hogwash, I say. The new iPhone 4S should not be dismissed.
We all know the iPhone is one heavenly device, but it turns out that actually it’s so desirable it takes the place of religion in our lives. Is this the reason for the impressively high iPhone retention rate or is it more than that? Why are these Apples stickier than caramel?
Everyone is excited about the upcoming release of the latest iPhone right? Well, not everybody, and I’m not talking about Android fanboys. Seems that iPhones just aren’t that cool anymore and although we might be excited to see the iPhone 5, the cool kids couldn’t care less.
We talk about the one-console future of phones and what will happen to the mobile computing space once system specs all converge.
I recount my personal experiences switching to Android and back to iOS, talking about the ups and downs and eventual return to my iPhone 4.
Not a week (or day) goes by without another iPhone 5 rumor surfacing – sometimes not even iPhone 5 but iPhone 4S rumors. It has to be one of the most hotly anticipated arrivals in tech circles since… the last iPhone. So why get so excited about a phone we don’t really know anything about?
Has the patent tug of war gone too far with the news that Apple has won the right to license how we use our fingers?
Apple and Samsung’s love hate, dysfunctional relationship is causing quite a stir within the tech world. Insiders say that Samsung is labeling Apple as a player, who just uses them for… discounted parts and manufacturing. Apple is labeling Samsung as a gold digger only after their innovation.
