RIM was successful during an era when there wasn't much real competition yet. Everybody's products kind of sucked, but customers hadn't experienced anything better because nothing better existed at the time. RIM's problem is that they fail to realize their phones weren't that great in the first place. They only seemed great because they could only be compared to other poor products. RIM's glory days are gone. Even if they found the next Steve Jobs and started to work...
Offering refunds is a hilarious option. There's no faster way to stop people from complaining than to say "No problem. Take it back.". I've seen that happening online with the silly "warm" conversation. A guy says "My new iPad runs too hot!!!" Fine. Take it back and get an iPad 2 instead. "What?!? Are you nuts?" Exactly. The new iPad isn't perfect. I sure wish it ran a little cooler and was lighter... but wow, what an upgrade! I can't imagine anyone who really...
No, they weren't. I get that you're an enthusiast, but you simply have no idea what you're talking about.The Nikon D50 was a 6 megapixel DSLR from 2005. If you wanted that body with a decent lens back then, you were spending over $1,000. Nobody in their right mind thought that was even close to being a pro body. A Nikon D50 with a prime lens would still outperform an iPhone today. Again, that's not a slam on the iPhone. It's a reality of lens size and sensor size. ...
Yup. You probably do qualify as close to being the world's worst photographer. Perhaps part of the problem is that you don't understand the tools you're using. If you did, you'd get much better pictures. Don't get me wrong... I own a $1400 DSLR body and have multiple lenses/filters/etc for it. I love my DSLR! But I still shoot with my iPhone sometimes, and love it as well. They say that the best camera is the one you have with you (meaning, no matter how amazing...
No offense, but no. It's ridiculous to even suggest it. In fact, the fact that you say "professional" shows you don't know what you're talking about. Pro Nikons are full frame and require lenses that can support full frame (fx). The (wink) "professional" Nikons you're probably thinking of are entry level cropped sensor (dx) consumer DSLRs like the D40/D50/D60. Speaking as a guy who owned a D50 (which dates back to 2005, those images blow away what an iPhone 4S can...
The iPhone 4 has been the most used camera on flickr for quite a while now. If I'm not mistaken, it unseated the Nikon D90 at the top of that list last year.
I don't think there was ever an honest debate about whether the new iPad runs as hot as many laptops. It doesn't. Frankly, this whole thing is a non-issue that began simply because many of us who bought a new iPad were surprised by how much warmer it runs than our previous iPad. My new wifi iPad definitely runs warmer than my previous wifi iPad 2. But does it run hot? No, not really. Just warmer than I expected. The new screen is frigging amazing.
This UI is absolutely terrible - BUT - I strongly suspect it was implemented to ready Apple TV for apps. The original Apple TV UI wasn't particularly great either (though it was certainly better than the new UI).
I'm not an army guy by any means... but two things the U.S. army doesn't lack: money and talent. And that's as it should be. If the army is finding uses for iOS, I think that's awesome. If only the space program were as well funded.
This is exactly what I'm expecting. I'll be disappointed if the new iPhone sticks to the same 3.5 inch screen. I never felt compelled to upgrade to an iPhone 4S simply because my iPhone 4 is still an excellent device. I'm really hoping for a compelling reason to upgrade. For many, that'll be LTE. For me, it's all about the screen.
