    <3 my new iPhone 5, sooooo happy with it so far. So thin, so light. Also the supplied headphones are now pretty decent, lots of bass and good clarity.

    Apple Maps blows. One of my favorite parts about Google Maps was how seamless public transportation was integrated. I'm not in Hartford anymore so it's not really a big deal right now, but even when I'm in NYC and I'm trying to navigate the subway, it's nice to have the mix of walking and public transport built right in. Yeah, I can get that other app/subapp/whatever it is, but they only have them for certain cities. Boooo.

    Contemplating restoring iOS 5, but Do Not Disturb seems like a great feature for when I'm in bed with my special ladyfriend. ;)

    I feel like Apple likes to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Remember Firewire? I guess because the new interface is called Lightning everyone is just going forget about that whole debacle.

    You can't get a BLU-RAY drive from apple either.

    What a dickheaded company. People give MS a bunch of shit for making Windows 8 a closed platform, but Apple won't even let someone else make a fucking cable. I refuse to buy their products because of the way they think they're the only innovators in technology.

    They just turned on LTE here in Denver. My phone now has a faster connection than my Comcast at home.

    That's sick. I wish!

    LTE isn't here yet and probably won't be for sometime.

    Oh well.

    I have been tempted to get an iPhone 5 but what is still a deal killer for me is not being able to talk on the phone and be on the internet at the same time (Verizon). What is the problem? Plenty of Android Phones can do it just fine why can't the iPhone 5? (I know because I have one)

    If other Verizon phones can do it then I don't see why the iPhone can't. But I wasn't aware of Verizon phones having that capability.

    At&T's iPhone can do it, but who wants to be on that shitty network?

    That's what the discussion was, GSM v CDMA. As for being on AT&T's network? It's the best south of Denver in Colorado & in the mountains still. Plus, the 30% service discount I get certainly doesn't hurt. Were I to move to the Bay Area, NYC or someplace with notoriously horrid AT&T service, I'd be more tempted to switch it up.

    tempting to switch carriers, but with those speeds so fast wont you run out of bandwidth since its capped by the carrier?
