HeartBurnKid: InmanRoshi: HeartBurnKid: InmanRoshi: MightyPez: Neo-luddites trying to be clever are so cute

Gosh, the word luddite gets thrown around so casually and flippantly these days.    I'll gladly and openly embrace any advancements in genetics or bioengineering that  have been developed to cure disease and alleviate human suffering.   I'm just not putting your ability to play Words With Friends and tweet about what you ate for dinner into the category of human advancement.

I love it.  I have a computer in my pocket that is more powerful than 90% of the computers I have owned in my lifetime, and you pooh-pooh it because some people play games or use Twitter from theirs.

Never has so much been used to accomplish so astonishingly little.    In fact, when I go to a concert and see more people documenting the event rather than dancing to the music, it seems like it's more of a hindrance to human experience than an advancement.

Sounds to me that your problem isn't with the phones, but with the other people enjoying themselves in ways s/he cannot understand.


HBK, you're really close. I think it's more a case of "STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE" syndrome.

erveek: GreenAdder: So if Apple already has two more advanced phones, why aren't they released yet?

"We're waiting for the price of components to come down" is not a valid answer. Apple already knows they could scribble the Apple logo on a brick and sell it for $3,000.

Where do I line up for the iBrick?


Sorry. I'm first in line and I am going to buy all the iBricks.

JohnAnnArbor: Someone may have already said this: it's entirely possible he did help design some future devices that Apple (and subcontractors) were not, immediately, capable of mass-producing.  Some new screen technology (that wrap-around patent from last week) or some battery or miniature fuel cell or whatever.  It doesn't mean they're holding out on us; sometimes the technology exists but isn't mass-producible at first.


This is a sensible and logical post. What's it doing in this thread?

Funny thing is for once an apple thread did not turn into apple vs android. It turned into, which android is the best phone. Now I see why they are trying the Weekend at Jobs' treatment.

tribute: Grither: Probably a good amount of android fanboys in here, right? Which phone should I get: HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4?

I'll bite.

If you are only giving those two choices I'd pick the S4.

My reasoning is that while the build quality of the One is gorgeous, but no removable battery or SD slot are my personal deal breakers. That and HTC's constant changing of their flagship phone and abandonment of updating unless you're rooted of most others gives me pause. The S4 design is uninspired but as with the iPhone their motto has become if it's not broke, don't fix it.

Now if you expand the choices to add the Xperia, Nexus 4, and iPhone 5 my choice remains the same, however with the Xperia you get a rugged water resistant build quality. The Nexus 4 you get a relatively cheap off contact phone (with less storage space, 16GB and no SD card slot) and iPhone if size is a problem. Everything's becoming relatively equal on specs and speed unless you're a tech junkie.

But if you're in no hurry, I'd wait for the Google I/O and Apple shindig.


I bought the One X just after it came out, and before the S3 came out, and I got the upgrade to JB. In the UK the trick is to buy your phone from Carphone Warehouse, and national retail chain, because they only carry factory stock phones with no network lock, bloat or branding no matter what network you sign up to. I even upgraded my old Desire there and kept my existing Orange contract and number. HTC here also come with a two year standard guarantee.

The S4 looks nice, but I'm still very happy with the One X. I've never had an issue with the non removable battery or run out of memory. Performance wise it's great. My favourite trick is to open up two different video players at the same time and play two different movies in separate screens. How cool is that?

To clarify, when the JB upgrade came out a few months after I got the phone it appeared on my phone as an update with no problem. Network branded phones had to wait longer.

I'd call shenanigans, but I'd have to hold myself in a special way.

ProfessorOhki: InmanRoshi: [www.stevegasser.com image 600x400]

Ladies and gentleman I bring to you ... the pad and pencil.

At first I was skeptical about it's robustness, but then I unlocked the full potential of the awesome organizational ability it contained within.   Note taking, scheduling, task listing, contacts ... it does it all. Clean. Simple. Elegant. Functional. Dependable. Light weight. Intuitive.

I tried pad and pencil, but I was getting 172,800,000 ms latency on all my packets.


No SD card slot. Cannot remove battery. Only black and white. No widgets.

FAIL.
