    Everyone is entitled to there own opinion as well as their own wants, needs, and wishes...
    For some, iPhone is better, for others.. Android, or other systems out there.. I do agree that these ideas have likely been a little influenced by android.. but the whole sd thing should be another topic... phones have had sd card since my first flip phone... long before smartphones.. so an sd card would not be something "stolen" from android.. just something apple finally found necessary/a good idea.
    I do kinda find it funny that apple has created "iCloud".. I know they didn't claim to be the first (at least not that I heard) but I do think cloud computing will grow substantially now that apple is in it... but it is funny that google has been trying to push it for quite some time.

    Im not gonna lie, there are some features in that video that I really liked, but its still generally the same ol' iOS. But WOW that notification bar is nearly identical to ours. Come on Jobs, really?

    Again, how many different, intuitive ways are there to do notifications, really?

    I mean, sometimes I wish I had patented the on/off button because pretty much everyone has copied that.

    Although I will say just because one method seems like the best and maybe the only obvious way, consumers ultimately lose when companies settle just to copy what appears to be working. And look like Apple added at least one tweak to improve on it being able to dismiss by app (and then failing on a "clear all" option).

    Sometimes I like to wake up real early in the morning and just start screaming "roosters, roosters is a winner". Just thought I would share that here in this thread. It has as much relevance as the thread.

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    not sure, but the unlock sliders that android has is a clear rip off of the "slide to unlock" of ios. I mean, there are literally millions of ways to unlock a phone. the fact that google chose unlock sliders just shows they were trying to copy apple.

    ^pretty dumb, right?

    Apparently some customers dont like being limited by the storage size a bean counter wants to limit a device too. (Lets get our customer base stuck using a cumbersome pc based program to transfer files and updates, and severely limit the ease of sharing and backing up files at the same time)

    removable storage on phones is the same as a moonroof on a car, or flash on android. i guess it's cool to say you have it, but come on, you know you're not using that space, and even if you are, there's no way you're accessing all the stuff on that SD card. It's just crap that's filling up space because you know you can. You don't need an SD card slot, you just think you do because someone advertised it as a feature.

    like you have a rotation of 5 SD cards that you swap out weekly...:icon_rolleyes:

    I love how you use the word discussion, then tell people what their needs are while ignoring any valid contradictions to your views.

    So you "need" multiple 32GB sd cards? that's what your saying? you have that much data that you "need" to be at your fingertips at all time? you sound like a very important person.
