    No I meant android users complain more about iphone then iphone users. Common sense would tell you that means it can't be that bad, android fanboy sense tells you that means ios users are sheep. Go figure...

    It's not an infallible device, obviously. Just like android is not infallible (although you'd never know that here by the way ppl swear android is the messiah). like I said I just find it funny that you guys claim to be happy with android but feel the need to insult apple because of a software update...again..go figure

    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.
