Iphone 5 was canned by steve jobs.. He literally used it for about 2 weeks, and well, didn't like it. ; ) His preference guided the company decision. - Really cool when you think about it..
I'm just going to wait for The quads Smartphones or the Hexas. My contract expires in a year and I don't really need a nice phone until then anyway. It's refuse at this point. Except for some of the extremes such as Iphone 4/s and Sensation like products... Why do something half-ass? Wait for Zeta, Galaxy III, or some other quads or other Hexas. Buying Nvidias Tegra 3 (Kal-el) would be nice, but still wholly useless nonetheless.. We have desktops and laptops with this kind of pwn-power... Imma wait till my phone has functionality (as in it truly benefits me and does something I couldn't acquire anywhere else) and solid capabilities.
Until then, while nice (and arguably useful) they are an amenity.
Personally, I miss the days where people actually said 'hello' to each other everywhere they went. To get that kind of reaction nowadays you almost have to be in some sort of club... Anonymous and rampant happiness is sadly gone..
'How're you doing', discussing the weather, smiling at one another, it's all so much more awkward than it used to be nowadays... Because cell phones have created a weird mentality among the whole of the population..
This is also coming from a 18 y/o. ; )
