9 months, 3 weeks ago on Report says Samsung tells Olympians to hide iPhone’s Apple logo in opening ceremonies
@dhergert Not everything is hardware related, no. If Apple wanted, it could make the animations on each device take 5 minutes by simply changing a number (if iOS is written how I assume). Apple could, by the same method, change the animation to be faster. If the processor of the device running the animation could not keep up with what the code was asking of it, the animation would see slow frame rates and you would see more harsh movement in the animation in question. Because of this, the A6 and A7 shouldn't show too big a difference (if any at all) when it comes to this sort of animation. The differences in the A6 and A7 are more suited for once the application has actually been loaded, in how fast it can run the startup functions and get the user to the content of the application. A simple animation such as how the application "flies in" when opening shouldn't put enough strain on the processors to show a distinguishable difference between the A6 and A7; and if it is, Apple is doing something very, very wrong.

@LucaFauciglietti I agree, I much preferred the blue icons.

@mbsambo10 I have used Android, and actually have a Nexus 7 so I have used the newest Android (unlike many who can't upgrade). So your claim that I haven't used Android doesn't make any sense. I was saying my favorite parts of iOS 7, not anything on this was about Android?
I'm being sarcastic, I understand why you brought up Android. My point is that is irrelevant to my post. If you don't have a comment about iOS 7, or your favorite features, something more related to this post, you are wasting your time and simply look like you have nothing better to do with your life than make useless comments about Android on iOS articles. :)

@MooseMonkey This is very well said. You have a great point, with which I fully agree; tablet and PC experiences are not the same, and shouldn't be treated as such.

@sellmymobile1 You can do this with a white iPhone, the glass would just stay white and the metal would be colored, just as the black does.

@SneakerHeadsAreCorny They do an awesome gold color. And like I said, in my opinion the price is worth the service. However, to each their own. (:
@Reese728 I'm not sure if they could keep the silver band though, it'd color all the metal (to my knowledge). The white glass would still be white though.
4K is too immature for Apple to want to do I think. I can see a 1080p HDTV though, with the UI being the real selling point. Something about it has to be what will sell, otherwise it'll be "just another TV."
1 year, 10 months ago on What new market should Apple break in to in 2013? [POLL]
@BrainRoopull So you mean a new mobile OS, not a smartphone. It has a smartphone in the iPhone.
@JonGiardina @CallChrisNow Using the term "cheaper" for this rumor is beginning to become a little confusing. By "cheaper" we are not talking a sacrificed build quality - I agree, Apple would never do that - we are talking cheaper price for non-subsidized. The iPhone 4 is indeed free now, but only on a contract. It is not free for people in emerging markets who buy their phones off contract, however. That is where the "cheaper" comes in. If they were to build a device, such as the above render, using older parts, etc, Apple could bring the non-subsidized price point down, therefore making the new device a "cheaper" iPhone.

I will refuse to update if that is what iOS 7 ends up looking like. I highly doubt it ever will, though. I like the rounded icons. They are clean. Those just look cluttered.

@TommyDaniel Look at the source. It is Cult of Mac. We were just pointing out the similarity in the pictures. I must have come off as a little more frustrated than intended. You didn't do your research to see where the picture was from.
@BrainRoopull @RobertPritts You're right, I'm sorry. "I'm not even going to begin to try to correct the grammar and spelling of that comment." Are you happy now?
@TommyDaniel That picture was posted before this article. So he did not "clearly see this post."
@SkyPira Oh no, one juror had negative conflicts. It was unanimous, so obviously the others with no conflict agreed. Verdict would have been the same.

@Sgt Slaughter I personally find it funny how Android "fanboys" are all up in arms when Apple releases a new device "only the screen and back changed!" Well, look at these leaked pictures. What's changed? The back. That's really all externally. That argument now is completely invalid.

2 years, 1 month ago on Will the LG Nexus challenge the iPhone? [Editorial]
@JBLmobileG1 I personally owned 2 Android devices before deciding to purchase the iPhone 5. They were not cheap Android phones either, they were full-fledged smartphones that were great at their respective time (the Droid Incredible, and the Droid Bionic). Albeit the Droid Bionic was a flop shortly after release, it did improve with successive updates. I made my decision to purchase the iPhone 5 not because I was "brainwashed" by Apple, nor because I have hundreds of dollars worth of music purchased through iTunes. I chose to purchase the iPhone 5 because it is superior in many ways to most Android devices. Not "inferior" as you suggest. There are pros and cons of both operating systems. It all comes down to personal preference. I, at a point, preferred Android. I develop for iOS, and have started looking into developing for Android. So I look at all this from a developer perspective. I now prefer iOS. One of the main reasons is build quality. You can't deny that the iPhone is built fantastically, and if you do deny it you are blinded by your arrogant hatred towards Apple. If you wish to call me a "fanboy" as your only opposing argument, so be it. You are only making yourself look a fool. I owned Android. Loved it for some time. But have moved on. It's nice to have a change now and then.

I love the one saying it is like a Samsung phone, and that it feels "flimsy." That in and of itself makes that person sound very uneducated on the subject. Please, tell me a thin plastic back feels like an aluminum one. Please.
I only buy official "Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad" products anyways. So this is fine with me. I can understand where others would be upset though.
