***Apple store in Baton Rouge will get a shipment of all sizes of the iPhone 5's for AT&T at 11:00am tomorrow.***


You're welcome, now to me.

BTW, this isn't a hoax. I have inside sources.

I'm pretty sure Apple's navigation routes around traffic as well. I'm not saying that it's better than google's implementation, just that it is there.


It has kinda like a spot deal that shows where possible accidents could be, but I don't think it will actually route around it.

Checked and it shows routes through both construction zones and accident zones. Basically it sucks.

The iOS 6 updated to the 5 maps minus the 3d on iPhone 4. I hit traffic this morning on my way to work, and had forgotten about the new feature. Sure enough little red lines to the EXACT spot where it opened up. I was highly impressed, and will use it everyday from now on.

I had to pick something up in South Baton Rouge Friday. directions were a little complicated but no big. I told the guy i'd just use the phone. He told me something is wrong with the GPS Mapping system that Pizza Delivery & UPS guys etc. were always complaining to him that the GPS would bring them almost a block off. I decided to give Apple maps a shot first. Zoomed right up to his front door.

LMAO FRAGDROID S3. The Dog eaters cut corners. Why don't they show this in that pathetic Apple commercial mocking the 5? At the end when they show you the two S3 fig arse touching to share play lists, they don't show you the shattered screens that result!!!!!

Please watch the short video at the link. The slow motion stuff is priceless---

quote:

No doubt to Samsung's delight, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is shaping up in marketing to be the chief nemesis of the new iPhone 5. One area where you can see this is in crash tests. Several have been performed comparing relative damage of the two to drops. A clear picture develops in the tests: The iPhone 5 is an especially resilient phone and the Galaxy S3 breaks without a lot of provocation.

I don't drop my phone. I do have a case for my S3. Your Iphone 5 still sucks balls.

You're probably too busy double posting to drop it.

If you take such good care of it then why do you need a case for it?

This is another thing I realized when I was messing with my roommate's iPhone 5. The matte aluminum finish on the back, while awesome, is more than an aesthetic feature. First, like the MacBook Pro, it dissipates heat well, another feature to support the A6. Secondly, unlike plastic or glass, aluminum, because of its pliable nature, has the trait of being able to take an impact without rebounding. The previous iPhone had the issue of cracking so much because with both glass and plastic, the shock of a drop had nowhere to go because both materials are very rigid. With aluminum, once the shock gets there, it can absorb and shift enough to cut down the shock. This is one of the reasons why SOME MacBook Pro drop tests come out with pretty positive results. That said, don't drop your shite.

I have a jail broken IPhone 4 with the Cydia software. I'm looking to upgrade from 5.0.1 to IOS 6. What's the process to do this? Do I have to unjailbrake my phone first?

Consumer Reports compared turn by turn in Android and iOS 6 and came away impressed with iOS 6, but said Android was still better.

quote:

Bottom line:
Both the free Apple and Google navigation apps provide clear routing directions. Apple feels like a less-mature product. But as seen with the initial competing applications for the iPhone, we would expect updates to this new app over time--and Apple has promised as much. When getting down to the nitty gritty, Google provides a better overall package, but we feel that both provide a good solution for standard software. We expect the competition between the companies will benefit customers with ongoing improvements.


What they liked:

quote:

Overall, Apple impressed our staff with the graphic presentation for the interface, results, signage, and points of interest info. However, there is less customization throughout than Google--a mixed blessing when driving, where distractions can be dangerous. Google comes across as more business like and less fun.

Apple Maps is relatively streamlined, providing basic navigation guidance and limited travel information. The large display for next-turn information (which looks like a familiar green-and-white highway-sign) is easy to read at a glance, and it compensates for a map design that is harder to interpret than that on Android. We like the estimated time of arrival, remaining distance, and travel time countdown, although the text is so small, it is a greater aid for a passenger than the driver.


quote:

Voice-recognition seemed comparable between the platforms, with each occasionally tripping over spoken commands. For both, the voiced instructions are clear and easily understood.


quote:

As for points of interest (POI), we programmed and traveled to numerous destinations. Almost all were found and successfully routed. Both platforms provided comparable information about restaurants and other attractions, with Apple using Yelp and Google partnering with Zagat. Each app provides contact information, reviews, and even user-submitted photos.


What they disliked:

quote:

In terms of traffic reporting, Google gets the nod. The iPhone doesn't highlight roads where traffic is flowing well, and the red dashes and yellow overlays of roads meant to indicate stopped or slow traffic aren't nearly as vivid and readily interpreted as those in the Google app. Because Google shows freely-flowing traffic with bold green lines, it gives the impression that Google has more information, although in reality, it may often be a presentation choice rather than a data difference. That said, in the greater NYC area, Google seems to have more coverage, or at least provide more information.

Was due for upgrade. Decided to try galaxy 3. Have had Iphones since 3g.

I won't be going back to the Iphone anytime soon. I do see why someone who is not really a gear head would want the I phone, but for ME this phone is better.

I'm fairly certain there is no jailbreak for iOS6 yet. Go to macrumors.com. They seem to have the latest and greatest information on jailbreaking.

Do you know how to un-jailbreak just to upgrade to the IOS 6 software?

The update should just overwrite the jailbreak. You don't have to do anything. That's how mine worked.

Will be months and months before there is a jailbreak out, and highly unlikely there is one this year for the iPhone 5 or even just iOS 6 in general.

What about contacts, apps, pics, etc? Do you lose those? Do you have to do a restore?
