This just pushed me a little more toward iPhone4 when I get my upgrade in May.
PLEASE PLEASE don't buy a phone until summer, the new version will be out then.
Disregard iSuck, acquire android.
Unfortunately Josh I'm not only aware of this but not much I can do about it, when the contract goes its time for a new phone. I'm still not sold on iphone4, debating mostly on the new nexus.
Impulse buying is a curse I carry T.T
You know it's true.
I own a 3GS and I am soo sorry I got it..
3GS was fine until they released multi tasking when iPhone 4 was released. That update killed my battery life a lot but iPhone 4 has no problem with it, it's successor should make the iPhone 4 look sad just as every other update they do.
When I originally purchased the 3GS, I thought that it would at least have all the feature set of a standard phone and PDA would have. Boy was I WRONG! Every feature you want, which would normally be included in any PDA, they will nickel and dime you to death.
You want a task list? In the 15 year old Palm O/S you can set task priorities, task due dates, task schedules, task completion, etc.. In the iPhone you have a note pad.. WTF?!? To have the same function as a Palm O/S, I have to go to the app store a spend X additional dollars to to buy one!
This is just one example of dozens of Apple's ineptness. I've discovered long time ago that apple focuses on eye candy and not true functionality. If they had focused on functionality they would have iServers and many other truly productive environments. Right now all they do is sell polished repackaged doo doo.
Apple takes a product thats starting to gain popularity (smartphones/tablets) and strips it of all the things that make it cool to provide the simplest user interface possible for all the idiots who will believe its revolutionary. The iWhores and mactards buy it because its Apple and they'll buy anything jobsy tells them to. The retina display may be gorgeous, but I'd rather have the qHD 4.3 inch screen the Droid Bionic is gonna have. And the bionic has that tegra 2 thing.
Amen brother. The only thing truly amazing about apple is their marketing department. They are able to repackage the same shit over and over and somehow sell it for more and more. Then again with the intelligence of the average person what it is today I'm far from surprised. Most of the features they add to their "new models" could have been implimented in previous ones. But why do that when you can:
Step 1: Release a piece of shit with limited functionality and sell it for 400$
Step 2: Add a couple of common features call it revolutionary and release it as version 2.0
Repeat step 2 while incrementing the version number.
They sell the same product continuously without its price ever dropping, pretty fucking smart.
idk man... I've looked at both, and (considering my contract with Verizon is coming up for renewal as well) I've been considering getting a droid over an iphone for the exact reasons that apple will repeatedly fuck you in the ass. I got an ipod touch for myself a few months ago and while I like how it has some nice basic abilities, you have to pay for fucking everything else. It kills me if I want anything extra to increase it's uses. Granted it is an ipod, but I already spent $300 on the stupid thing. If I had been smart and done a bit more research, I'd have went with a zune ffs just for the fact that it does about the same stuff out of the box, but with a lesser price tag. Translate that to apple phones/computers and I see a trend of getting fucked in the butt some more. Hell, I dont like some of Microsoft's practices, but at least I know I'm getting something that has a shit ton of functionality, without having to shell out extra money outside what I'm already paying to use the shit I've already bought.
Long and the short, I'm probably just gonna go with a droid and see how it goes. I got a couple months to do research on what I want, might as well use it and find something that will work perfectly for what I want it to do.
True on so many levels.
Apple missed the boat by not releasing to Verizon and Sprint sooner. This gave Android the time to develop and become a viable alternative the iPhone.
