Sounds like Apple are planning an announcement on the 4th october, should be a big one with updates expected to the iPhone, iPods and AppleTV

Yay, all my normal, favourite tech sites will be full of Apple bullsh*t for the week. Just what I wanted to hear. Roll on ICS please...

I know. I hate it when coverage is given to the biggest & most important news. It isn't like anyone has any interest in it.

I especially hate it when the news has tsunamis & war. It never happens where I live so what's the point.

Or you could just filter your news with Pipes -

Yeah, iPhone is definitely on the same scale as a war or a Tsunami...millions have been "brainwashed", by iPhones, but they don't kill people, fantastic analogy.

Also, important...really...iPhones are "important"? For Apple's financial stakeholders, maybe, but I think the starving people in Somalia or Tsunami victims in Japan, would tend to disagree with you there; since you seem to like extreme comparisons :p.

Otherwise, can I just not care about the iPhone, or is that not allowed?

You're allowed to not care about the iPhone, but I think an irrational hate for a phone with definite plus points is a bit odd.

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 22:44

It's not irrational, it's the most overhyped product on the face of this planet and I accept it has good points, such as after sales service, smoothess, prettiness etc. But not enough of them for the media coverage it gets, blocking out everything else that'll undoubtedly happen in October...whatever that may be :p.

Also, I think comparing the iPhone to wars or Tsunamis is somewhat disrespectful. Those poor people have lost everything, the more people know and help the better. The iPhone on the other hand is well...a rich people's toy, a total non-necessity, yet it gets media coverage like it's a gift from god himself.

Me and Apple went through a messy divorce haha :D. Our relationship lasted 2 months...then we parted company, Apple left with a large chunk of my cash :(....#badtimes

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:12

2 months... an infection takes 10 seconds and lasts for a millennium ;)

actually what caused you to get rid??

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:17

Couldn't stand the piece of sh*t. It was smooth but slow (continental drift, was quicker than the browser), pretty but featureless (2mp camera, no video, no AF, no flash, no other type of Flash) and expensive but closed (even Jailbroken, I feared updating it)...The I laid my eyes on the HTC Desire, we eloped together, leaving my sorry iPhone well and truly behind :p.

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:18

2 months...about 1 month and 30 days to long, in other words. It was cool for about half an hour...which is how long I's spent messing about with a mates' before I got mine...

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:19

now now... 2mp camera you can take some truely blurry pics ;)

and why would u want flash.. your movies don't need flash..

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:29

My SGS2 has a 2mp front facing camera which is better than my old iPhone's main camera :p!

HTML5 thanks ;), you 'orrible bloke, Treab :p

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:34

is it now a case of 'do it yourself'...

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:39

I'm not sure what you mean...but I fear answering wrong, with the turn this conversation has taken :p.

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:44

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 23, 2011 at 00:16

Editing your post to make me look bad, that's low :p

Treab  Sep. 23, 2011 at 00:28

but, its not a new low :D

MDrX  Sep. 23, 2011 at 08:47

Oh it wasn't an extreme comparison :)

I was merely pointing out that every news outlet will report on things the a lot of folk don't care about. There is no need to whinge about it.
You can not care. Just like lots of people don't care about the constant stream of mediocre, boring Android phones. Every day an identikit Android phone is announced/delayed/released/updated. No need to complain, just relax and set up Pipes to filter your news. Everyone is happy then :D

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 23, 2011 at 09:27

To be honest, I was just being my normal cynical self, until you compared war and the iPhone. I lost a friend in Afghanistan so, you know...I can tell you, the iPhone is totally insignificant in comparison...

I think my reply may have been somewhat sharp tongued, I apologise for that, it was my bad. You're right, the co start stream of Android phones is annoying as well, my point is, they're not treated like a gift from God.

Anyway, I like having a good old bit*h about stuff hehe ;)
