Just not anything that screams buy me. I will be sticking with the 4s.

I hear ya but I still have a 4 so...

I have a 3GS, but I'm not interested in buying all new accessories.
I have a few months left before my contract is up, I'll wait for see if they can Jailbreak IOS6 and the Iphone 5 by then.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

I'm on the 3GS, so it's definitely time for an upgrade. Whether it's the iPhone 5, 4S or Galaxy S3, that's to be determined.

Very true. My wife has a 4, typically I get the new one and she takes my current phone.

Every other company in the world uses the standard micro usb. Blackberry, windows, symbian, android, firefox, ubuntu, tablets, kindles. Maybe you'll prefer one of those.

And still, no multiple signatures in the mail app. Really Apple? Really? You tout this as a "persona; and work" device, yet make it nearly impossible sometimes.

Yes, it's the best phone that Apple has ever made -- but one that other mfg's made a few years ago!

It looks like the 4/S stretched.

They're really relying on the fanbois and girlz to be gobbling it up, unless there is a 5s by spring, I might end up going Android also.

A buddy of mine got one, had to replace it 3 times, if he jumped to wifi he'd lose all Cellular service, it is pretty big at 4.8" though.

With all the changes in the market, in last year, there should have been a ground breaking product. Like I said, they're relying on the rabid fans to buy thier products no matter what.

Ive used a few Android phones. It's not necessarily Apple that's keeping me there. It's the hell that is poorly designed Android interfaces. Holy shit, do they suck!

I played with my buddies S3 it's not bad if you ask me. With ICS installed and Jellybean should be out soon, it's getting more mature.

Looks we've figured out a way to make it even more convenient to extract you from your money.

And who knows what phone can upgrade? Talk about random upgradability. Just sad.

I don't understand why Apple doesn't live-stream these events. Their audience would be much bigger.

That I agree with, they are still flogging low (and overpriced) tablets with 2.2 installed.

That's the one thing Apple/RIM and MS have going for themselves. Controlling the sw and hardware has allowed them to make an integrated product.

Wait till the BB10's come out, I think you'll be impressed. I played with one this weekend. Very "iphoneish" looking.

The Blackberry ship sailed and sank a long time ago. Maybe if they didnt run everything through one fuckin NOC that takes a dive 2x a year.

I'm not fussy about the phone as the carrier, right now Wind is only 5 bucks cheaper/month then I currently pay, the unlimited sounds great, till you realize you don't need it.

Not yet, by May/June next year if the BB10's don't take off then yeah.

This has always bothered me too. Google streams everything on youtube. At 720p. It's great.
Does quicktime not have a way to stream?

Actually you can have a signature per account with iOS 6 if you'd like.
