The number of people that buy a product does not make a product good or even correct. Not by a long shot. That seems to be the prevailing argument in favor of (rather, in indifference toward) the "iPhone 5" name, and frankly that's sort of disturbing to see.
I've been counting wrong for my entire life, apparently. Had no idea the number S was in there.
… Not sure how the truth can be overscrupulous…
Tallest Skil is one funny dude
Already have in this very thread, and elsewhere.
Apple has always been about giving people "what they wanted, not what they thought they wanted". Calling the 6th device "iPhone 5" is bowing not only to what idiots in the public think—the John Q. Public who have no knowledge of the internals of Apple—but is also a virtual admittance of the stupid, pathetic whining last year that the iPhone 4S "was a stopgap" and that we were "supposed to get the iPhone 5 last year, therefore since we didn't, the next phone will be iPhone 5". The name is only still in the public mindset because of these idiots, their unrealistic expectations before the launch of the last iPhone, and the stupid rumor that Apple would be releasing TWO PHONES at the same time.
?Additionally, they've changed their minds about how to behave in just the past six months.
Sorry, you don't see a problem with Apple going around to everyone and asking what they want the phone to be like? Design by committee doesn't strike you as a bad idea? It's why the Apple III had a 100% failure rate.
"iPhone". Terribly difficult to understand.
I'd like that as a tagline, sure.
Maybe just in the UK.
I'm truly not alone. How wonderful.
