not built in. They have apps you can pay for.

ETA: Also, the GPS chip in the 3Gs sucks incredibly bad by todays standards.

interested in seeing how the failure that will be Metro changes this


It won't they are going to give sys admins a way to disable the feature.......besides Metro is a workstation feature in the business world.....a workstation feature that the end user hates won't move corporations from Microsoft's backend network infrastructure and control.

In fact on the server side the implementation of Powershell in Server 2012 is going to be pretty cool IMO.

Their marketing dept. was successful at that I would say


while I agree they have been successful at marketing their products, their strongest suit imo is their support, customer service and quality of their products.

in the three years of owning multiple apple devices, i have had no major hardware issues, however when i did they fixed it and fixed it fast.

You see I can't speak to support, but as far as device quality. I've owned 2 Apple phones, numerous Moto's, 1 HTC, 3 Sammy's, and probably one or two more that I am forgetting and I have never had a single hardware issue with any of them. If I had to make a call based on my experiences I'd call it a wash on that.

I guess you don't understand the jump from the 3GS to the 5. It's pretty significant.

we are not speaking of the same turn by turn. google gave you a list, but it didn't work like traditional GPS, telling you by voice were to turn, etc.

a lot of people. it's $60 for the Garmin app in the app store.

it's not accuracy that's the problem, it's getting a location lock that takes a long time and good luck if you're inside a building. The newer iPhones can lock much faster and with more interference.

Turn by turn is an iOS feature, not a new phone feature.

two examples would be my wireless mouse for my iMac started to occasionally disconnect.. I called apple on at 3 one afternoon and the call was 4-5 min long. They overnightted me a new mouse to my doorstep (9am).

couple weeks ago I noticed a little discoloration (maybe 1" square) top of my monitor. It was barely noticeable but I took it in on a friday and picked it up sat. They replaced the entire LCD on my 27" iMac - no hassles

ETA this is a 2 year old device

this sentence contradicts itself.

Also, Apple isn't using some top secret hardware that no one else has access to. I've had just 1 problem with any electronic I've ever bought and I replaced it myself (hard drive failure on a computer I bought in 2005)\

So on 4 different computers and 3 phones, I've had 1 bad component that needed repair
