The 5 won't be out for 4 months, rumors peg it as an incremental update (a bit faster, a screen that's 0.2" larger),...

It could be 1000x stronger but glass is not flexible--if you drop it the wrong way, it will shatter. Just get a damn Bumper and be done with it.
Quote: Originally Posted by NewYorkRanger No, but if a phone is advertised as "30 times stronger", and it falls 3 feet from your pocket to the ground, it probably shouldn't break. The problem was one of the more common complaints of the 3G and 3Gs, and when they "improve" it, and promote how much more indestructable it is, they should be held somewhat accountable. Did your phone's corner hit the ground after the fall? If so, no type of glass...

Played a 3DS for the first time the other day...walked away with a headache after 5 minutes. Has this happened to anyone else?

^^ Note that the above has also been reported by Bloomberg and WSJ, two groups with great Apple track records. This news is coming out everywhere at once, actually--it smells like an intentional leak from Apple. The "cloud" technology is simple: no information will actually be saved on your phone! Rumor has it the iPhone mini will not have any memory, but instead save and download your contacts, music, videos, etc. wirelessly from servers owned by Apple. No memory =...

I'm happy to wait for it, and honestly I've been fine with my 3 (except for the crappy camera). Did you ever upgrade your phone to iOS 4? Wondering if you skipped that upgrade, as a lot of people were disappointed with it.
