    Wouldn't that mean that their chips use a lot of power?



    Yes, that's exactly what it means. He simply misspoke. He should have left the "don't" out of the sentence. I don't think anyone was actually confused by it however.



    Why is everyone so fascinated that someone misspoke? It's a silly topic.

    Okay, this is not the first in-lab shot we've seen. Someone is running around the Cupertino secured labs with a cam snapping shots of Apple stuff. If they are so freakin' draconian, why isn't this mad snapper showing up on a police report somewhere as an "unidentified body" and a smashed device that may have been a camera or cellphone. No clues as to the identity of the victim where found - police are asking for assistance. Yeah see that's the way it SHOULD go down!

    The way I read it, the article is saying that photos of the next iPhone have been in the wild, but were overshadowed by all the iPad stuff. It's not saying that the phones themselves are out and about in the wild.



    I think this is perfectly relevant news, if not big news. It's likely a real photo of the next iPhone. It doesn't reveal much, but whatever.

    I mean really, just look at the implication given by the article title: "Photo of Apple's next-generation iPhone in the wild". A photo of a partially obscured device in a secret lab somewhere hardly counts as "in the wild". Although, I'm sure the editor would argue that they are saying that the photo is in the wild, not the device itself.



    I understand the desire to report new / rumored information, but please don't turn into the spectacle that the US news agencies created years ago when trying to be the "first" to call election results. First != Best.

    Yeah, I know it's just a technicality and it's easy to see what he meant.



    But, as dull as it is, discussing said grammatical technicality is infinitely more interesting than trying to make something out of this poor excuse for an article.

    The point about McDumdum is usually the historical rants have nothing to do with the article. I would read 3 pages of historical vomit then 1/2 a paragraph (i.e., 2 sentences) that ties into the title which drew me into reading it in the first place. So advice on reading his/her future articles is to skip to the last paragraph and bypass the vomit.

    I can't figure out why this photo was swept under the rug last week.

    The juxtaposition of the iPad and iPhone (4G or not) is interesting on several levels:



    1) why are the 2 devices shown together?

    2) to what is the iPhone connected? the iPad?

    3) does this mean that the 2 devices are intended to interconnect?

    4) if so how and to what end:

    -- USB, WiFi, BT?

    -- sync, backup?

    -- share files, data, apps?

    -- tether iPad to iPhone?

    -- share I/O capabilities:

    ----camera?

    ----cell phone?

    ----GPS?

    ----displays/touch surfaces?



    Is there a synergy between the devices that we haven't divined yet?

    Go away if you don't like it.

    "Our chips don't use hardly any power."



    That does not sound like Steve Jobs to me. His English is not this poor. Really this story is a disappointment, yes everyone knows Apple will release a new iPhone in June, yes everyone knows it will be identical (or nearly so) to the previous iterations - that is how Apple does business improving on a successful design for as long as possible, and yes everyone knows it is probably being manufactured in China right now.



    Disappointing, not the iPhone, this story is.

    If the new iPhone we'll probably see next July has Apple's A4 processor or a derivative, I think we'll be seeing quite a bit better battery life in the new iPhone than we get now. Here's why: Jobs said, when asked about battery life on the iPad, "It's all about the display." So if the display is the primary battery hog, then an iPhone will consume 1/8th the power of an iPad, since the iPhone's screen has 1/8th the square inches as an iPad (5.65in^2 vs 45.16in^2). Now if the iPhone had the same battery as the iPad (10 hrs of run time), it would get 80 hours of run time on it. But it doesn't. It's battery is only 18% the size of the iPad's (4.5watt-hrs vs 25watt-hrs), so it would get 18% of those 80 hours, or 14.5 hours. When you add in the additional power needed for an iPhone to be running a 3G radio all the time, and actually using it some, then those 14.5 hours would be cut substantially? half would be a fair assumption. So my SWAG on the run time of the new iPhone will be 7-8 hours of continuos video, with some web time added in there for browsing & email, and for a reasonable number of phone calls. I believe that's quite a bit better than what I get now.



    I'm NOT taking bets on this.

    To show the size comparison =\\ Yesh people sure are reaching and grabbing nothing but air.

    Why don't you watch Walt Mossberg's interview and see it from his mouth?



    I would have loved to hear Steve's on the spot answering of either:



    "You defended no multitasking on the iPhone as a reason to save battery life. With 10 hours of battery life on the iPad, what's the reasoning now?"



    "Wouldn't having a forward facing camera like Mac laptops make sense on the iPad?"

    Then, why not just use a standard, running, iPhone?



    Why the need for a special iPhone case, speciaally printed stickers, blocked areas, recovery mode and the cable to nowhere?



    Seriously, if just to show the size difference why go to all that trouble/effort?



    If you've got nothing to hide, why wear a fig leaf?

    Pretty much confirms it's gonna have a replaceable battery.

    haven't really read peoples responses but hasn't it occured that maybe apple is going to use the march/april iPad launch to launch iPhone OS 4????

    i mean it wouldn't make much sense to release it running 3.2 if two months later your going to launch a new phone with new os.

    My prediction is iPad running os4 in march april, everyone salivates and buys it, june july new iphone running new os, everyone salivates once again regrets buying that 64gb ipad and decide to break the bank and buy the new iphone too.



    my ideal upgrades to the iphone would have to be:

    aluminum enclosure with an ipad like opening for 3G

    better battery life(by far, like my bb9700)

    true multitasking

    maybe bluetooth syncing for when i forget my cable

    somekind of bbm for iphones, it would get that exclusive club feel and would be an improvement over regular sms

    front facing camera with a new photobooth app(like on macs)

    landscape keyboard everywhere (hate the portrait like a zillion tipoes)

    some kind of theme customization, at least a background, like blackberries, dont have to load more than one theme from factory, but at least make it an option for people to design and sell in the app store

    cable to sync ipad from iphone or vice versa or possibly cross syncing through bluetooth

    bigger speaker that doesnt get muted by my hand position while gaming

    change the volume rocker and mute switch to the right side





    yeah I know, one can dream alot, if apple did everything people wanted sites like ai wouldnt have people ranting about cdma iphones and stuff lol

    Not only that, we learned that scaling up a blurry picture didn't expose any more detail. Shocking.

    All the red text means is that it's being clicked more often than usual. It's not a manual setting.

    I still think it's fair complaint. AI is not big like a typical newspaper, but it is still a for-profit site. The writers often try to mimic professional journalistic writing style, but with unprofessional errors. That's like dressing up in a suit but leaving the shirt untucked. If they had "blue jeans & t-shirt" writing style, then it wouldn't seem so off.
