Ask an Android user. They're probably not all Anti-Apple Imbeciles.

HTC, Sony and others beat Samsung to market with 1080p displays.
Why is this iterative upgrade such a big "innovation"?
Apps that works (and look good) on all devices. For those companies problem is always software. If they put a layer up and do some coding, then you must have all of there devices for an integrated experience. If they let Google do it, then they are all the same and Google will come up with Nexus phones, tablets and TV's to compete with them.
But with a flat scalable interface and a spritekits, Apple is positionning themselves into easy handles of multiple resolutions for devs. So doing a 720p or 1080p phone and have greats multi-device apps may be a non issue now.
Yep, wearable devices is a great opportunity too. When is the question indeed.
I think mobile payment is this year big change for the iphone. NFC chip, fingerprint and solftware to go with it. Partnership with a credit card and they are gold. Its a nice to have feature, but imo more screen sizes and market segment models is what they need the most.
Did you not see the Apple videos that they showed, that were highlighting different usages of iOS devices like iPad, and how they were being used in the healthcare/medical field?
I think that there was one even shown on the last keynote, where you saw some doctor in Africa or someplace, visiting patients and using their iPad as an essential tool.
Do not know better and an Anti-Apple Imbecile has used their standard false arguments
Do not know better and have listened to advertising and marketing including the commissioned sales person
I have never seen a true open source OS initiative worked. Ubuntu is (was) manage by Mark Shuttleworth and Android may be free to use and modify, but its Google baby are there is no way in hell you are touching that code. You can only have the source of the complete release to play with.
Yes, of course Apple is not the one making any of those healthcare apps or software. Apple was just highlighting how their devices are being adopted and used by the healthcare and medical industry.
Indeed. Saying that Apple is in healthcare now is like saying Dell is in heathcare because hospitals are using PC's.
Wearable medical devices that connects to an iphone and send data to a monitor could be a play. Maybe an Apple branded watch like device you get when you are hospitalise that monitor and send data to the nurse desk monitors (imacs). Then doctors moving into a patient room could catch it live on there ipad while seeing the patient. Software and interface to handle tests results like xrays and MRI straight into the patient file on hospital servers. (macpro)
Well, the flat interface concept is all about less UI and more functions. Maybe some people only see looks, but its all about functions. Looks like they made a decent job from you're comments. It may lays the groundwork for more to come indeed, but unfortuanatly I am getting worried Apple can still really innovate. It sure looks like they are building the foundation of something, but they need to make something soon because inaction is hurting there image at the moment.
Look at market perception ATM: Quote from CNBC fast money
"let's talk about apple. it's still trading below 400 bucks. pete, you have called this a second half story for the last -- for six months. i have been talking about this being a second half story. tim cooing is going to have to come through allotted more than he did at the conference. they did not deliver. tim cook didn't wow anybody and obviously there were a few updates given out there. jon has some background stair a little bit on possibly what's going on with the phone. i think they still have to compete with samsung with the bigger model phone. i think that's important because people are watching videos. they're doing everything. these are computers, they're not just phones anymore. that's a mistake and they're late to the party. they might be too late. if it doesn't happen within the next few months -- here is how i look at apple. it was the company that was three steps ahead. now it's the fat dog with the short legs running to keep up and it's not making it -- you're right. they're months behind. you have google coming out with the watch. google working on tv. they're late to the party and it's all about trend and fad and technology"
Apple should have seen the evolution of smartphone into small computers in 2011 and make 2 high end models for 2012. Instead it lock in into making the best possible 2007 concept of a smartphone and they are now behind.
Depends. If combined with game control APi's and an Apple TV that support games, then we have something. Otherwise all we will get is more games on the app stores. Well, with the combination of sizable flat interface, control api's and spritekit, we may get somewhere indeed.
If Apple nail the portable game market is will be nice. But if Apple put up something that revamp both the portable and console game markets, now we have something great. And if Apple revamp the portable game market, the game console market and the TV market in one blow, now we have a true revolution.
Will it be nice, great or a revolution? The market is pricing the stock for the worst case scenario, which is an iphone 5s, a retina ipad mini and a new ipad 5. I think if Apple enter a significant new market like mobile games, console games or TV, then we get a rebound. Otherwise is more EPS declines, more unit sales declines and more market share lost.
I'm not sure how you figure this. Apple is not losing market share or unit shares and EPS drops seemed to be more the massive ramp ups need to support the new iPhone 5, retina laptops and new iMac.
You might be missing it, but Apple is already destroying the mobile game market and portable computer with a little thing called the iPhone. Again, I think you are looking for a spec list and not an integration list. All of Apple's stuff that I saw on WWDC seemed pretty darned good and actually useful as opposed to say, Airtouch or "global panarama".
While admittedly not empirical data, I've been querying all of my daughter's finger popping, 20 something, iPhone owning hipster friends that she hangs out with and without exception they 'can't wait' to get iOS7 on their iPhones. True, they may think something different when that actually happens, but I'm guessing all the doom and gloom purveyors predicting an iOS7 'fail' will soon learn that they are clutching their pocket protectors too tightly.
Blackberry is a total disaster, and if you check out the crackberry forum, as I have done in the past when I needed a few laughs, you'll quickly find out that many people who still support Blackberry, only do so because they're Canadian. How pathetic is that?
Those people are totally deluded and they continue to make excuses for Blackberry, even though they've failed on many of the things that they've promised to deliver.
I've said this before, but Blackberry should quit the tech business and begin making maple syrup instead.
Well, if you consider the fact that Justin Bieber is Canadian, it doesn't surprise me. I just couldn't resist.
You can root the OS and everything. Plus, they have widgets. Actually, the big thing they think Android is better is being able to modify the OS, transferring files back and forth to other devices, and a lot of the Android higher end models have built in MicroSD cards.
Hey, I am not saying they will be right, they are often wrong. But sentiment is pretty low atm. That being said, I do believe Apple can turn this around, so I do have real money betting on this. But my confidence is not strong as it could be, giving the lastest product annoncement hiatus. But they could still have a great plan and iOS 7 is a key part of the new upcomming hardware, so they had to delay all hardware (upgrades/new) to fall.
Third party programs can integrate more seamlessly into android because the intents system lets a program pass data to other programs while assuming nothing about the identities of the recipients. For all ``intents" and purposes android does not distinguish between first-party or third-party apps. Thus a user who prefers third-party apps over factory-supplied ones might feel more comfortable on android.
Also, in android you can attach any file to an email directly from the compose screen, just like you would do on a mac or windows machine. To attach anything other than images on IOS requires a somewhat clumsier workflow.
Right. Not taking it out is the whole point these days.
It's no longer about moving memory cards around, it's about being able to do an upgrade of your phone's memory for up to hundreds of dollars less than paying for it to come built-in.
Most people buy their phone and then get a high capacity microSD card, stick it in, and that's that. The only time they might take it out, is if they want to reuse the card on their next phone, to save even more money over the long term.
I'm sure there's a lot of people who would love to be able to pop in another 64GB in their iPhone for less than $60.
You could also mention the new physics engine, and a bunch of other things but "herbapou" still won't ever agree. His posts might as well all have been written by "Debbie Downer."
