Come on guys and dolls . . . give Apple a break. I read about Blackberry and how backwards it is; how near death is is (OK, it could be) and they launch a new phone that is very un-BB like. MS will not change or innovate, many say and they give us the Surface and their phone OS. Some say Apple needs to change, so they do, and they catch heck because the UI is flat.
Are you all never satisfied?
All I see ahead is Apple suing over the use of flat blue tiles or perhaps Dyson, for making vacumes that look like the Mac Pro.
Here is an idea: JB the thing in three years when they figure out how and add a theme. Or visit Cricket and have a look at the wonderful Samsung Chrono at only $29.99. no need for iTunes Gift Cards, either.
Geesh, Bob is so frustrated.
You know what they say Bob....you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time......well they say that here anyhow
The final release will probably be much different than the beta so who knows what will change. No offence, but anyone that turns their back on a device because of the colors and flat icons should never comment about how advanved the iPhone is compared to other phones. We do not purchase devices because of the colors, do we? Some do, OK, but many want a phone that works.
Odd that some hate the new icons lack of depth but they really never praised the iPhone for having 3D looking icons. It is all about how android is terrible and iPhones rule.
All I know is the iPhone is not for me because it has a tiny screen. Can't beat the Galaxy S3.
But you are correct.
And do not forget the iFanboys on both sides of the never ending Apple/Android fight. Nothing will please many so why bother.
My guess is Apple is why they have an android phone and a free OS is why there are so many of the blasted things out there. They often cringe when I say the iPhone(s) make more money than the entirety of Microsoft.
Oh well . . . All I know is my mom says I am pretty and that is what I base my life upon. That and my power to control kittens.
You're quite right Bob,the finished product may be quite different than the Beta and we should judge it then.
So, lemmme ax you all, if the first iOS looked flat, would we hate the 3D look? I say yes, yes we would. After all, we have forums to complain to, so yes, we would complain.
I say, don't worry, be happy.
New Coke disappeared because people screwed with one of the 4 food groups - soft drinks and Coke changed back. Lest I remind you all, the double-stay corset went away because women sent telegrams. Not to mention, Peter Carl Goldmark's invention is making a comeback.
We can fight the machine and I say we write emails aplenty.
And while you are writing email messages, try to help me get Teaberry, Baby Ruth, Clove, Beemans and Blackjack Gum (and candy cigarettes) back in the stores.
