Fuggin Bizzy: Maybe. But how in the hell does one "base" an OS on a markup language? That's the motherfarking bullshiat. Some marketing speak, is all.

YodaBlues: hobberwickey: As an developer who works a lot with HTML5 I am really excited about this. Unfortunately I do question whether it will do well because there are far far to many people who 'know' HTML5/CSS/Javascript who will write the crappiest, clunkiest apps for this and it'll fall apart.

HTML5 is great when done right, but it is almost never done right. I blame JQuery. IE 7/8

IE has the second most-used browser out there, and the majority of it is still 8 or earlier, which doesn't support HTML5. The hacks we have to use to get shiat to work for IE is retarded.

/IE 9 isn't bad, most stuff works without issue.
//Still wishes everyone just used WebKit.

Meh, IE8 is pretty terrible, but at least it's slowly fading away. JQuery's picking up steam and filling the web with crappy, bloated web apps coded by people who go to stackoverflow and ask questions like, 'it is possible to convert this jquery code to javascript?'

MrEricSir: This sounds suspiciously like those commercials where they had to trick people into using Windows Vista by claiming it was something else.

There was an image floating around the rumor sites earlier this week that was suppose to be the new UI for the iphone 6. People were getting all excited about how cool and revolutionary it looked... until someone pointed out that the images were actually screenshots from Windows Mobile 6.5. Suddenly all the talk about how revolutionary hexagons were for an interface went away. At least it was good for quite a laugh.

/You'd think people who have noticed the date in the notification bar was from 2010.

azpenguin: My really obscure smartphone uses an OS that you've probably never heard of.

BlackBerry, huh? Sorry to hear that.

jvl: Is it really rocket science to build a phone which does not look like a clone of the iPhone? Designers never had trouble with that before 2007.

Ah, I was wondering when the iFanboys would show up to talk about how Apple invented everything.

wildcardjack: TheBushwhacker: Based on the pics, I give this until about next Monday before Apple sues it into oblivion.

What's there to sue for?

What's NOT there to sue for?

Cool. Will it lock up my browser for 5 minutes every time I open a site with Flash? I would love that Firefox feature on my mobile devices as well.
