The irony of this question in this thread is delicious.

What do you mean, @NorCal?

I don't see the connection between the annoying/creepy stuff Google has been under fire for lately and anything happening at Apple.

Apple likes to limit what you can do but they don't force you into services.

so i got an iMac recently and got the magic mouse with it. wasn't too happy with the scrolling (random scrolls would happen) and the fact that it has only one button made things very inconvenient. so i called apple asked them if i could swap it for the trackpad (and buy a better mouse on my part separately). they said they'd just give it to us for free and that we could keep the mouse. really great customer service.

I've always disliked Apple's mice. Usually go with something 3rd party instead.

Literally talked to customer service last night and it got here this afternoon

The trackpad is very nice IMO

i really like it better than a mouse for normal stuff, but need a mouse for games

Anyone use a battery case? Do you find the extra battery life worth the size and weight they add? I have been considering looking into one as long as it doesn't increase my phone's size too much.

I used the Mophie case with previous models. Worked fine, allowed me to go a whole weekend without charging. Once the 5 came out I embraced skinny and it's been in a Maison Takuya case from the start. I keep a spare battery in my briefcase but don't use it often. I must say that while the Mophie case served me well, their external batteries aren't that great in the power department. Very good fit and finish but not much juice compared to Schoche units.

One thing about the Mophie cases: forget about using earsets with angled plugs.

The recent update to Evernote's iOS app is a much needed improvement. Hated the default green theme and I'm glad they are letting you change it now. The new layout makes much more sense too by giving priority to the users most used functions. Still a few areas that could use refinement, but overall it's back to being a great app.

Anyone try out the new Paper app by facebook? It's pretty damn good. It's very FlipBoard-esque (another awesome app I use everyday), but the gestures are leaps and bounds better.

I've been saying this for a while, but I truly believe the next step in making smartphones better will be through getting rid of fucking buttons wherever possible, both within apps and also on the hardware front for the actual smartphones.

Blackberry was headed in the right direction..

Paper has a pretty good interface and it's definitely nicer than Flipboard. Unfortunately, fuck Facebook so I won't use it. If it were non social media connected I would definitely switch.

Also the thing talking at me and interrupting my music was really annoying. There should be a warning.

The fb link is only through the first section. You can add themes and those are the ones I look at. I never look at the fb theme.

Also the voice instructions only occur when you first use the app.
