You would say that.

I, on the other hand, am very excited about the new Apple Touch Expensive, and I'm grateful to this mysterious stranger for letting us know about it.

:unnod: That really is the only thing that I've been missing with the iPod Touch since it came out in ought-seven ... it just isn't expensive enough.

Fuck you Apple, fuck you and your planned obsolescence right in your money hole. :fuuu:

There are several apps for my 1st gen iPad that I'd actually pay for, you know with REAL money, however they all require iOS 6. iOS 6 is not supported on my incredibly old, read 2 years, iPad.

Yes I know 2 years is a lifetime in computer development, but hey the 1st gen iPad does everything I need it to and the iPad 2 really has no features (other than it supports iOS 6) that I want or need.

So I'd really like to give you some money, but apparently you don't want it, or actually what you want is for me to spend $9.99 for the app plus $499 for the iPad to use it on.

My Ipad has decided to stop playing audio on Youtube videos. At least, most of the time. Sometimes I can get sound on an embedded video, but not always. If it launches the Youtube app I get nothing. I have no idea how or why this happened, but it's bloody annoying.

The app developers are probably due some :fuckyou: as well. Apple isn't forcing them not to write an app that's backwards compatible with earlier versions of iOS. They're just releasing a new major version of their OS every freaking year.

I both love and hate the new iOS7 design. It has a nicer sleeker feeling of a fast multi-use gadget, that someone accidentally got the 2 minute illustrator mock up with blurred color blob backgrounds and multicolor gradient fades mixed up for the final design.

Whatever, this thrad has Apple in the title, close enough.

It's past time to replace my iPhone 4. Should I go ahead and get an iPhone 5 or wait until fall (or later) to get a 6? I don't care about rumored low-cost model of the 6 or whatever.

If I get a 5 now, I avoid delaying that gratification, don't have to wait for an indefinite release date, and don't have to participate in the inevitable upgrade rush. Also spend less money.

If I wait and get a 6, I get to avoid obsolescence for a little bit longer, benefit from whatever new features, and be the first one in the office with a 6. Also spend more money.

5 now or 6 later?

Stormlight is very smart and I agree with everything he says. At this point, you may as well wait for either the 6, or else the inevitable price drop on the 5 when the 6 comes out.

Apple store wage theft: Retail store theft.

Quote:
The basic issue is this. Apple agrees to pay Apple Store employees an hourly wage. That's how you run a store. Apple also makes Apple Store employees undergo time-consuming search procedures to make sure they're not stealing stuff from the store. That's annoying, but you can understand how it happens. The highest-end unsubsidized iPhone retails for $849 and easily fits into your pocket. But the allegation is that Apple would treat the search time as time "off the clock" and uncompensated even though spending the time doing it was a formal condition of employment.
(For extra bitter laughs, there's a :lolyglesias: bit at the start about Apple's appalling supplier labor system being a "force for good").

Leftwing bias in the MSM, obviously. I don't know why they always talk about the abuses corporations commit, and you NEVER hear ONE WORD about release dates for new products?

My 5S will ship sometime within the next month, apparently. I was obviously too lazy to go stand in line, so I just ordered it online through my carrier, where I enjoy bottom-tier customer service priority thanks to discount I receive through my employer.

I pretty much lurve iOS 7 already. I've also discovered a particular joy in internet people who are upset by the iPhone.

I mostly like iOS 7 so far. It's aesthetically nicer, I like whatever you call the quick settings thing you can drag up from the bottom of the screen, I like the new task switcher, and holy shit, is that a native flashlight app?

On the down side, it seems to eat my battery more quickly, presumably due to apps doing stuff in the background now that they're allowed to. Also, I wish whatever you call that quick settings thing was a little more customizable. Having a readily available link to the native calculator isn't all that helpful when I use a third party calculator app, for example.

The last time I upgraded my OS it deleted all my photos. There was some warning that I needed to upgrade to the cloud, but I have no interest in letting Apple store my stuff. Is that going to happen again? I will need to copy everything to my netbook and then a flash drive if it is.

But don't bother with iCloud.
Apple's been trying to do an internet thing for awhile now and they keep getting it half right, then trashing it to start over. I'm currently a member of iCloud because I was a member of .Mac which become MobileMe which is now iCloud. The name changes were fine but they dropped webhosting which was the only other feature I used besides e-mail. I wouldn't recommend iCloud until you see iCloud V2 or 3 and people actually know what it does through use and not marketing graphics.
(not that I'm bitter about the drop of webhosting or anything).
