It's humorous that "Fanboi" keeps getting tossed around when the Apple users seem to be the ones bending over backwards to point out the pros and cons of each mobile platform. Crazed sheep they must be and all. smile.gif

You are fairly balanced. Not completely, but fairly. For instance, when I pointed out a couple things my (two year old) Android had Apple doesn't your reply was that's nice and maybe a future Apple will have what the (two year old) Android did. That's an apologist's statement.

Then we do really have some fanbois that get obviously agitated at criticism of Apple. You're not one of those though.

You've been my straight man in this thread. smile.gif

I disagree with the framing that it's an "apologist statement" to agree that an Android handset might have some nice features that the current build of iOS does not. No one ever said the iPhone has every mobile feature ever dreamed up baked directly into it's OS and no one is apologizing for this fact.

Counter example, I don't see how an Android user indicating that having a feature like "Find my iPhone" built directly into the OS would be nice in a future update is an apologist statement either.

Maybe if the statement was made in a vacuum but it's the answer of choice. When the phone touted as the benchmark, the greatest thing ever to happen to phones, lacks features outdated phones have and this is the default answer? You will probably say you do not hold it as the benchmark but please do not deny it is considered the benchmark in a general sense. The BB was several years ago but the iPhone has obviously booted BB completely out of that spot.

I like some features this phone has. I dislike the fact it lacks some features my old phone had. Having it one week today I'm going to say it does the three tasks most needed by me (phone, contacts, calendar (that my secretary can access and it updates OTA) ) pretty nicely. The calendar is working smoother but the contacts do not aggregate information quite as well. So it's a success an overall for the things I need it most to do.

As far as giving me that overall ultimate user experience that it is so touted to deliver? Not seeing that.

I've decided to give it a chance until the next gen Samsung comes out at least. That way I have several months to play with the device, which admittedly has a different platform than my previous, and I can make a decision down the road.

Years ago I had a vampire client who insisted his probation drug test that was positive for cocaine was wrong. He didn't do cocaine, but he had sucked the blood of a girl who did coke, so that must be how he got it. I wish I had a transcript of that hearing.

Just patiently waiting for the LifeProof case

It is too annoying to have to carry my phone concerned about scratching it. I just want to toss it in my bag when on the go.

That's amazing. Drinking blood providing the person doesn't have diseases, is that harmful?

Well my understanding is that vampires need blood to survive as a source of sustenance. I'm not sure how it would work on those of us who are not undead.

Although this particular vampire could walk around in the sun all right, so maybe the rules have changed since The Hunger.

The Hunger is one of my favorite movies. Beautiful movie.

Harv, was your client Wesley Snipes?

I've noticed that if I plug my phone in to charge at home with my Macbook Air it charges really fast. At work plugged into a PC it is painfully slow. Is this something that Apple does on purpose to piss of PC users? If so, that's kind of funny.
