I see. Makes a bit more sense now. Thank you for the clarification.
@Flaneur I see your point, but I think the Macalope does an exceeding better job than DED when it comes to throwing punches. Just my opinion.First off, this does not address the issue we were talking about. Rather you set up a straw man attack to discredit my opinion about DED's writing style. Again, I don't disagree with with many of the stances he takes with apple, google, and samsung; just in the manner that he approaches it. This among other things (other stances...
 Apple Insider isnt the main problem.  Most of the authors do not do what you described above.  They are usually tactful.  That said, I have largely started to avoid articles written by Daniel Eran Dilger for various reasons, including the reason you have stated.  I love apple products and reading about them; I am not fond of android products, but there are occasionally neat uses for it, however I would never own an android phone, tablet, or set top box. I do not think...
  I see.  I wasn't trying to compare to the iPad, just saying thats what I go to if/when I want a bigger touch screen and the apple tv isnt around.  I find it hard to share photos etc on any phone... we always end up just passing it around instead of everyone gathering around a single phone.  Most of my family members own an apple tv and we all have iOS devices so its real easy just to airplay stuff we want to share.   I have trouble getting my 2.5" pocket knife out of...
  What exactly is the allure of having a bigger screen?  I can do everything just fine on my 4s.  When I want a bigger screen (say for watching a video), I throw it up on the Apple TV or go to my iPad.  I really don't understand this thinking of the NEED to have a bigger screen on the phone.  It just sounds so cumbersome and annoying.
That was what I was trying to convey.  In large part the MacPro was a complete surprise, although I thought there was a rumor about it having lots of thunderbolt ports (which I thought was obvious at the time).  Thats the only thing I can remember.  But you are right, they are just rumors and many have been wrong (wouldve provided an example now and in the last post but I couldnt remember any off the top of my head).
FTFY.  Capitalization error :-D
1. I think you're spot on. 2. I doubt it.  Rumor mill is suggesting that the next gen iPhone will be like the 4 to 4s iteration which would be characteristic of Apple.  Maybe next year.  I could be wrong, after all, they are just rumors.  (I thought the iPad mini was uncharacteristic of Apple and I thought the rumors were just hot air, but here we are...).  My hope is that we don't get a bigger screen.  It would be easier for developers and simpler choice for consumers...
Interesting.  I am from the USA.  That does just go to show it is a regional thing.  I would say the majority here would place more importance on battery life and portability.  I see a larger screen as detriment to a devices portability which is why I rarely carry my iPad around with me unless I have my backpack.  Plus some of the pants I own have tight pockets (i hate that) and it makes it a real pain to get my iPhone in and out, let alone a bigger phone.  The extra...
I repeat: Never. Ceases. To. Amaze. Me.   I do go outside.  I see more iPhones in the wild than anything else.  When I go to tech conferences, I mainly see iPhones.  At airports, I mainly see iPhones. At my church, I mainly see iPhones.  Going outside will not prove anything.  It could be that just my region and the places I travel to mainly have iPhone users.  I have not been everywhere, but from my experience, the iPhone is pretty ubiquitous.  The android big screener...
