Re: Live Coverage of Apple's September 12th New iPhone

$29 for the adapter? Fuck that.

Ok buy all new shit ...

It's ridiculously priced. Plus I would need three of them for my household. Let's be real here. $29 is a kick to the balls.

Where the hell do you shop? There's half-a-dozen flea markets around my house that will see this adapter for $3 or $5 dollars, that's where I go to buy chargers and cables for my wife's iphone 4.

In my neck of the woods there are not a bunch of flea markets. It either online or at the retail stores.

No I mean Steve was an inspiration and WAS these products. He was enjoyable and exciting to watch. Phil and Scott are boring.

Meanwhile Apple does make the most amazing, beautiful, best stuff and is what marketers call a first-mover. Samsung and everyone else are second-movers and ALWAYS will be. Where Apple leads, they will follow like dogs.

Oh yeah I really enjoyed watching that sour-faced dictator sneering on those presentations and making sure he enslaved you with his propietary devices instead of making them flexible and better for his die-hard fanatics.

Samsumg has surpassed Apple for your info, Google it, the Galaxy III has outsold the iphone the world over this week, more units sold worldwide. Samsumg is truly a visionary company, the Galaxy Nexus unlocked all over the world as smartphones should be, unlike apple and their stupidity to sell their first smartphone locked for years on the crappy and incompetent AT&T network.

Google's (Android's) Play Store is as large and as professional-looking as the Apple Store, no bloody iTunes either to ruin the party. I have only signed-in ONCE in my lifetime to Google Store and download free/paid apps no problem, on the Apple Store every bloody app I have to sing-in with my ID, even when the app is free for heaven's sakes.

Just because Samsumg is second or a copycat doesn't mean they are not as good or better than Apple, Toyota was a copycat of Ford as history shows, tell me which vehicle is superior? The galaxy III creams any iPhone you can put up against it, it's not my words it's reality, check it out on the internet.

So you don't think that releasing a new iPhone in the next couple of weeks hasn't slowed iPhone sales for months now??

Samsung surpassed Apple? Hardly, it's more like a loser flyby...I use both platforms DAILY and the Play Store is a convoluted second run...like a blurry Xerox copy of the App Store. Meanwhile yeah, no iTunes...just beyond stupid and glacially slow Android Transfer and unreliable syncing. I love it when 1/2 of my contacts are missing on my Samsung and apps on my Xoom force close 5, 6 times a day. It's my favorite. Nothing is better than working on a document or long forum post just to have Polaris take a giant shit or the browser spontaneously quit. It's a stellar user experience I'll tell ya. Yesbut...you can install custom ROMS...yeah, like my Samsung where you lose the camera and hardware acceleration and end up with a half baked buggy mess of a handset. I love having to build 2 completely separate music libraries because Google Music Manager fails to re-encode for upload and rather just ignores high bitrate files altogether...making playlists incomplete.

No thanks. You can keep it. I'll use Android tablets to play around with, like my 1080P TF700T which is by far the best Android tablet on the planet...but as great as it is, it's not as good as my iPad and if one is tossed to the curb...it would be the Transformer Infinity.

Samsung isn't visionary...they're a second mover no different than every other Android hardware vendor and they always will be. Samsung is the Dell of the handset world....cheap handsets pushed out in volume running a free OS.

And Samsung BETTER outsell the iPhone 4 the month before the iPhone 5 is released. Let's see how the iPhone 5 first week sales compare to the S3's first week sales...or month, or quarter. The iPhone 5 will blow the S3 out of the water. While nice, the S3 is another supposed iPhone killer that wasn't. It will go down as just another Android handset.

Gotta love it when Apple threads make the front page at DSLR. My ignore list gets a little longer every time it happens.

Sorry, didn't read all the 400 posts in this as well as the other threads, so I don't know if this was mentioned, but have a quick question. If you don't have the 5, but have iOS6, how will the phone handle the extra row of icons on the screen? Will they shrink in size so it will fit, or will the operating system come in two flavors, one for the 5 with the extra row and one for the others without the extra row?

This based on this article with a picture of iOS 6 (developer's release) on an iPhone 4 of some kind last June...
