IMO if this phone had been released on schedule in July there would be a lot less negativity. I think the delayed release raised expectations.
Why is anyone surprised? Because of "leaks" This was obvious and it is Apple's pattern. Every other year is a design upgrade with a internal component upgrade on the opposite years. They're not trying to get IP4 owners to upgrade. They do a two year cycle. I had a 3G and went to the 4. People with the 3GS will go to the 4S. The phone has nice upgrades that make it an awesome phone. Especially coming from a 3G.
Apple is a profit, not market share driven company. They don't care one iota about numbers like this.
and how long will this take to download?????
Just wondering how long it will take to donwload Lion for example. It takes an hour or so to get the iOS updates. I see this as a huge issue for people. With slower connections one could be tied up for hours downloading major software and then have it time out etc.
Just to pose the devil's advocate question, the magazine companies have my info (address etc) if I subscribe to their magazine as they have to send it to me. Of course if buy it at the newsstand at cover price, they don't have it. If they only want the same info they'd get with a snail subscription, I do see their point. Nothing else should be shared of course.
LINKI though this was interesting and food for discussion on Apple's culture.
A few salient points: 1) As has been pointed out numerous times (and ignored by many in the Kool-Aid crowd) the 3G was sold right up until June of this year. That means it is a current phone, not a two year old obsolete phone. 2) Do I think Apple deliberately tried to brick the 3G, no of course not. I had one and when I upgraded to iOS4 it became very slow and unpleasant to use. 3) Is Apple obligated to provide new OS's for older devices (or indeed any devices), of course...
I needed that once, and couldn't get it. The best I was able to do was take snapshots of the mms screens and then import them into iPhoto. I then was was able to print the images of the the mms screen. Hope this helps
You can go into iTunes and set up to restore to a previous backup of your iPhone before it was lost. This happened to me once and I did that. You will however, lose anything you've done since that last backup.
