    Is this how we keep new members, by ridiculing them and telling them to go away for expressing their thoughts and opinions? image



    Please dont quote TS. It circumvents my block on him. There is a reason why he was demoted from being a mod and was even banned

    Big ol' white space in KD's post that I assume is a video, by the way.


    Yeah but he's new to the site and was expressing his wishes. Since you've seen it too many times over the last 5 years, and obviously have no tolerance for it, maybe it's time you go away.

    If the rumors of the changes to the 5S are true, I'll stick with my 4S. It's a phone. Not my life!

    You don't even have a clue what a troll is, do you? :no:

    I'm not saying that you're wrong for sticking with your 4S, I'm saying your decisions for sticking with your 4S are total crap.

    Enough FUD, please. Go away.


    Why don't you go away. That poster you called out made a very valid point. The premium iPhone will need to have some premium features to convince people to pay significantly more than the 5C version. It is very possible this leak was for the 5C and not 5S. Since you didn't bother getting the iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, 4S, or 5 I wonder what Apple would need to include to impress you enough to actually buy your own iPhone instead of ridiculing people here.

    According to Wikipedia:


     


    In Internet slang, a troll (/?tro?l/, /?tr?l/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.


     


    Someone is trolling, here, and it's not rosewoodat5th.

    I mean theoretically these part leaks could just be from someone claiming to have a part to a "new" iPhone - since there are going to be two new ones this year it could easily be confusing for these sources.


    Good point. This leak doesn't really tell us too much in any event. I hope the flagship iPhone includes a lot more reasons to buy it over a plastic iPhone than just the fact that it is made out of aluminum. I hope it includes a much, much faster CPU/GPU, more ram, more storage, the fingerprint scanner would be nice as well. Every time I see an iPhone 5 it is behind a plastic case as is mine. Not sure what percentage use cases but I bet it is a very significant number.  Apple will need to clearly demarcate the lines to avoid cannibalization and give people a reason to choose the more expensive offering.

    His implication that it will not IS TROLLING. :wow:

    Have any of you ever known TS to backtrack even when he knows he's wrong? I rest my case.

    Nope, try again. He said his expectations are that the 5S will be a normal evolutionary upgrade similar to the 4 and 4S. But he said he hoped Apple had more up their sleeve and were just better at secrecy and will surprise us. That is not trolling in the least. In fact I would think most readers here would agree with him and hope the 5S will offer more surprises than the rumors have indicated. I hope for a 4.8" screen but I certainly don't expect it this year.

    Given that I'm not wrong…

    So where is he to agree with you that this is what he meant? Looks like a drive-by to me.

    The iPhone 5s is going to be awesome. I think we can expect many upgrades regarding the internal hardware. I just hope they sort out the scuff issues with a new type or superior aluminium coating.

    If course you're not wrong, although a few other members have told you otherwise.


     


    Have you thought that maybe he, along with many other Apple device lovers, would like Apple to step-up the pace of their innovation? As much as I love Apple, I know they aren't perfect.....like you think they are. Plus, there's nothing wrong with someone, and I quote, "hoping" Apple come out with another killer iPhone feature to blow the competition out of the water.

    Are any of those members him? Huh, how about that.

    I figure that he, who did the research to get an iPhone already and who is deciding to go so far as to post on a forum about Apple products, would know a bit about the history of said product.
    …like you think they are.

    Thanks for the lies, anyway.

I just think something cool would be cool (and I think the 5S will be cool anyway no matter what Apple puts into it). Anyway nothing that I said equates to "Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt". I don't see what is wrong with theorizing that these part leaks could be mislabeled by the leakers. Anyway I don't appreciate your negativity.

    In his follow-up post that you've conveniently overlooked.


     


    You're wrong because you misread the intent of his post. Why don't you man-up and admit you jumped the gun.....for once. I'm sure you'll be thanked by many here and looked upon in a higher regard.

    I get your point, but the leak does confirm a new wave of Apple products coming, soon.


     


    None to soon for me:  Mac Mini is smash up against its 250 GB storage.  Cracked my iPad2 screen the other day...now it is slowly losing pieces of cracked glass into my lap...remaining pieces held in place by a Moshi cover.  Sigh, have really loved it, but it is too heavy, too big.  Going for the mini iPad this time.


     


    Finally, my iPhone 5 Bluetooth is having on again off again issues...so a new trade up program would suit me just fine.  So looks like Apple will vacuum about $2K from my wallet this Fall.


     


    Maybe more if a new Apple TV comes out...love me some new electronics

    Hence the reason for his post. He is ***hoping*** that Apple will surprise us with "one more thing" about the new iPhone. History has proven to us that it sometimes happens. You know, like Facetime and the map app, which I think is fantastic compared to most everything else out there. Real, slo-mo video, perhaps?


     


    After all, isn't that what AI is all about?.....discussing the possibilities?

    No doubt the 5S will bed a great device, but the new fresh design of the 5C will wipe the floor with the 5S in terms of sales......2013 will be all about the 5C as it will still be an upgrade for most.

    No, it won't. If it does, people are complete idiots. Why would year old hardware outsell new hardware?
