    I remember the Nokia 3310, everyone had that thing. These days I do not have any experience with Nokia. Most friends of mine have a HTC or an iPhone. And I think that they both rock.

    You forgot to remind people that Apple tried to sue MS over the GUI....same with the mouse....Xerox created the mouse, Apple stole the idea, then tried to sue over it.

    Given Apple's own history....I'd say they do deserve it. They tried to sue MS over the GUI, which Apple stole from Xerox. They brag about OSX "stability" yet take every step to prevent anyone from comparing Windows and OSX fairly. They joined the EU bull**** against MS over web browsers.... It's time for Apple to get slapped around again.... MS saved Apple and now Apple thinks they rule every market they enter.

    You can't compare Stability because they're two very different operating systems.

    Meh - You have to give Apple some credit, I mean they basically revolutionized the cell industry with the iPhone, whether you like it or not.

    Revolutionized would be a bit of an exaggeration but the fact that they're around and focus heavily on aesthetics to lure in their... customers forces other companies to put some consideration into aesthetics rather than outright ignore them. Apple are part of the reason why M$ put a little more focus into appearance in Vista and 7 rather than have it butt-fugly as possible. But that's as much credit as I'll ever give Apple, aesthetics, that's it.

    FFS they decided to switch to Intel before Intel were working on the Core 2 architecture. They decided to do the switch to Intel during the reign of Netburst.

    I think it's more than just aesthetics. I think what Apple really nailed on the iPhone was the extremely intuitive interface and I don't think anyone has yet to top it. Granted, I think things become a lot more complex when you're running multiple apps at the same time and I'd definitely like to see how Apple handles that, but yeah, the interface IMO is pretty damn revolutionary.

    I mean the cell market was so stale with the same old crap before the iPhone, then afterwards all these different companies started popping up with all kinds of various phones trying to be the ones to "beat" the iPhone. I personally don't own an iPhone anymore, I own a Droid - but coming from an iPhone to the Droid, I noticed a lot of similarities, some improvements and other things that I don't like.

    I don't really want to stray too far off topic, but yeah. I think Apple is pretty damn good at interface design. I was reading an article the other day at Engadget about how before the iPhone was released, people were releasing mock ups of these insane devices of what they thought the iPhone would look like, how it would behave, etc. No one even came close.

    I'm like super excited and interested to see what Apple does in the future for the iPhone and even this rumored tablet they have coming out.

    It seems we're entering a time when everything is invented and patented.

    Looks like there should be a stop to either stealing ideas or being able to patent ridiculous amounts of know-how and technologies.

    Meanwhile, let me patent wheel-like shape, I'm gonna be rich in no time :bang:

    People who edits music, DJ's and people who just doesn't care about what's sounding at all. Schyzophreniac costumers that are DJ's/sound editors and don't care about music are also included.

    Yeah, really. You get sick of listening to all that music you're constantly working on. Hearing your mixes is cool the first few times. But it fades away pretty fast and leaves you with a pretty bad mood afterwards.

    So yes, radio on MP's and MP3 players are justified, as people who doesn't care much of music and are gifted one of those devices will use it for radio plenty of this time. Non-computer-savvy people aswell.

    It's also great when you don't have a data plan.... I don't have smartphone so don't look at me all funny. Can't say I've used it very much though. Was great when I worked at PetSmart at night and needed some stuff to listen to, you'd be surprised how fast you can get tired of the songs you already have. Better than anything over internet cause it won't drain your battery very much at all.

    Well, a couple of his points were related to the original iPhone, which is an even greater piece of crap than this "new" 3GS version. The latest iPhone is exactly what the original iPhone should have been.

    That website totally does not tell you the truth. They clearly just wanted to bash the iPhone, not actually review it.

    He's a satirist writer, of course it's not an actual review, though it does hit on a few good shortcomings of the original phone and does so in a very comedic way.

    I wish he'd update his site more often =(. His book wasn't even that great. (Yes I own it).

    It has a sensor that disables the screen when it's near something, if his cheek was touching the screen and hanging the phone up then his sensor must have been broken. Pretty much all touch screen phones have a sensor like that.

    And yeah, it revolutionized nothing, right.

    Nokia N900 is much better value for money than iPhone and in my opinion N900 just is much better. IPhone is just so damn limited and crippled.

    But anyway, I just can't wait Symbian^4 devices! DirectUI+Orbit is looking very promising.
