It was a success, sure, but the iPod touch is virtually redundant now and the iPod classic is dead. Matching that current situation up with a projection, that'd mean the real iPhone would be killed off in favor of just the 5" one and the dumbphone, and people don't really want dumbphones, so that'd be killed off…
So just the 2" and 5" models, then?
As everyone knows, the hardware button sucks.
It has always worked beautifully for me on all of my iDevices.
Double-clicks work 50% of the time AT BEST.
100% for me. But I suppose some hyperbole is in order.
Look, I absolutely love the gestures. I use them exclusively to get around… except when they don't work because an app is hanging. Then I simply tap the Home Button a single time and it immediately takes me where I want to go. It's comfort. It wouldn't feel right buying a device without that protection.
Macs still have physical power buttons. Because occasionally we have to hold them down for ten seconds and start anew. What happens when your computer's stuck and you go to press that software power button you so thoroughly campaigned for only to find that it's doing diddly-squat?
Yanking power cables is for Hollywood movies as a last resort when hackers are getting your data.
