I'll chime in as a new iPhone user. I never owned an iPhone before 6 came out. I had a Sony flip phone which I liked a lot, and it got me out of answering texts and emails when not at work. (it was an excuse to keep me from getting tied down to work in off hours basically). Then I got a Palm HP Veer after retiring, and I loved it, and I had a touchpad too. I loved the Palm OS and webOS, especially for the elegant interface and the easy to access settings in menus, and the...
I sure hope iPhones do not have a government backdoor built-in. Luckily I have nothing to hide. But, if I found out that Americans were being spied en masse and I could expose that to the world, and possibly end the spying, then I would do exactly the same as Snowden. He's a hero in my eyes and in the eyes of many Americans. Nobody want the government listening in on your calls and checking your emails.
Samsung's designs aren't bad, they still look like iPhones for the most part though. The thing that sucks is that they run android. I find android to be a cumbersome and clumsy interface. Its user experience lacks elegance and is harder to navigate than iOS.
I used to work in software and Hardware QA departments at Apple for many years, There's aren't enough testers to cover everything. But it wasn't always that way. There used to be more testers per project, with lots of contractors hired when needed, and much more impromptu testing and manual testing. Unfortunately after 2000 a lot of the groups were made smaller and each tester was in charge of a lot more work. I think I worked from 10 to 15 hours a day on average including...
I bought the 16GB 6 Plus and filled in up with a few apps and about 600 songs. That was the first day I owned it and it gave low or no space warnings. I did own an iPhone before so I had no idea the 16'ers filled up that quickly. I tried to originally upgrade in by 14 day period, but there were no phones in Plus size. I have to live without many songs loaded on it basically. But it did irk me a few times that I couldn't take a photo or video. I'm in on the suit, if it flies.
I heard the movie sucked from a couple of friends, I wouldn't waste the bandwidth. I too hope The Interview is not talked about any more.
If I could pre-order it now, I would. I've seen enough of the features in the original product rollout event video.
By now, most people are bored with the whole Steve Jobs iconic leader story. Did the other film do well? Never liked that Kelso dude, I never bothered to see it and I worked at Apple for many years. I liked iSteve because it was ridiculous and stupidly funny. For a serious look at the history of what made Bill Gates and SJ so rich and successful, nothing will beat Pirates of Silicon Valley to me, because the actors looked like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates and the script was...
When the iPhones came out I went down to the Apple store to buy the 6. I wanted to check 'em out before buying. I always thought phablets were too big. As soon as I held the 6 and then picked up the 6 Plus, I knew I would regret not getting the 6 Plus if I went with my original plan. The Plus didn't feel too large at all, it fit fine in my pocket, it had a better camera, it was easier for me to see text. So I changed my mind to the 6 Plus. Problem was there weren't any in...
I only watch TV on a TV set, so I don't need TV or movies on a tiny screen. Besides, CBS is free on antenna in HD. I get all the shows and movies I want on internet, antenna and the library. I just use my old mac mini as a set top box. I cut the cable cord many years ago, and cut netflix not long ago. l know many others that are doing basically the same. Why pay?
