Well sure it's not for everybody. No doubt android does some things better. But for people to choose well they have to be able to compare and contrast. You can't do that if you don't know or don't want to hear about the advantages the other guy has to offer. All I'm doing is pointing out things I think Apple does real well. The frustrating part is mostly dealing with people think they know all about apple but 90% they don't use the stuff especially Macs and OSX and obviously really don't know what they're talking about. You do so you can actually help out with your insight to the pluses and minuses of using Apple stuff. If someone doesn't take the time to explain things how are people gonna know?

Just today in the Siri thread there were regular users talking about Siri features they never knew it could do.

ETA: and yesterday people were saying you can't surf porn on an iPhone or an iPhone is more expensive to buy. The misinformation/misconceptions are off the hook.

So can you track and text messages from your phone desktop/laptop and tablet like you can with Macs? Start conversation on one and pick it up on another?

Correct, the 4s has 4g



False. The ugly truth is the 4s actually runs on the 3G framework. The OS update just updated it to say "4G" and the masses fell for it. Seriously.

Actually it is semi true.

The 4s on verizon and sprint is only 3g capable. No 4G whatsoever.

However it has the legal definition of 4G on AT&T because AT&T and T-Mobile fought to get the definition of 4G changed from being LTE and Wimax only to including the quasi 3.5G HSPA+. The iphone 4 and 4s both have HSPA+, which allows them the ability to say they have 4G, when in reality they have 3.5G. They do not have LTE though.

I literally know no one that thinks that the 4S runs on 4G or LTE whatever you call it.

LTE is a GSM based network technology.

4G is just 4 generation cellular technology that can transfer data at given speeds. LTE is one of the technologies capable of achieveing this speed

That speed was reduced so that HSPA+ is now included in 4G, so AT&T can claim 4G on non-LTE devices.

I have my phone on me at all times. And you're a fricking dullard. I don't use my personal computer at work. So even if I DID have a fricking Mac it wouldn't do me any good at work because it would be at home.

What manner of retard are you?

You would be somewhat funny if it weren't completely obvious that you are joking

It's pretty insane that this other guy is serious though

I really do have every Apple product tho i think for me the thing that i like the most is there is sense of consistency or continuity with the products. I got burned on Zune, i loved it and had all the versions and then one day they discontinued it and i was pissed.

According to paige, I don't think they got it until the 4S came out which is sad enough as it is.


The only 4G around when the iPhone 4 came out was Sprints brand new (at the time) WiMax network, it was available in 8 cities, and is now defunct.

ETA: And yes, the 4G on the 4S is really FauxG, but they're not the only phones on ATT that claim it. (Atrix 4G, etc.)

Unlike you the type that read and text messages the same message threads from his desktop, his laptop, his tablet and his phone. You don't use your devices at night?

EtA: oh yeah I run windows from my Mac ( got an old fossil office program I have to run) during the day. So I can text back and forth on my desktop all day long!
