Why bother, when a good ol' bottle of Crazy Glue goes for a buck o' fifty. Three bottles for tree fitty.

Wow, I just upgraded to iOS 7. It's pretty dang slow on my device...

 

One page of apps with no folders. Courtesy of:

 

Yeah I'm going to use TinyUmbrella to roll back to the more efficient and faster iOS 6.1.3.

 

iOS 7 has a stupid fade-out effect for the backlight when you press the lock button. It's pretty annoying and just wastes battery. Likewise for when you turn the backlight on. It takes about half a second to get to the actual "swipe to unlock" screen. WTF

Welcome to what Apple calls "innovation".

post #90501 of 149516

The only good thing about it. NO need to double-press the home button to access media controls. You know you're an audiophile when you hate something and the only thing you like is the music interface.

 

Still, waste of battery life to just pause/fast forward/rewind your music. Jailbreak + Activator is still way more efficient in this sense and you can access those options any time you have access to the physical volume buttons (always).


^ Pretty? Sure, but if you have long tags, you have to wait for it slowly scroll to see the artist/track/album.

 

 

Oh, it's so easy to see how many characters you've typed in your passcode too.

All this hate for any company out there, and especially Apple really shows me just how little most people know about Business. It's not innovation. It's marketing. And it got damn works. The mass majority of rich people(world scale) that can afford their products are under their umbrella for marketing. This applies to any company and all companies. Their commercials, what they say, doesn't mean schit. You are exactly right, it isn't directly innovative in any way. 

 
But it is a damn good move. They have one of if not the world's best marketing teams
 
This basically just ends up with the 1% of users in the world, the enthusiasts basically going like this

 

And Apple/company X going like this knowing that while they(the enthusiasts are right). That it doesn't matter in any way.


 

What innovation ACTUALLY is today is not direct innovation. This is the idea that nobody without a business major knows. What is actually innovation today is company X with the BEST marketing and sales skills taking an invention or innovation and putting it out on the market as the most prevelant one to do it. Thus making them the 'name/brand' behind that invention or innovation and thus they are now the innovators.

 

Simple Entrepreneurship right here.

 

This is the difference between working for a company like Intel as an engineer and FOUNDING/being CEO of a company like Intel.

Well, all this sounds like common sense to me.
Nothing you need a business major for.

 


And I recall Apple saying that their new OS IS innovative.
No idea what is so wrong about Hybrids comment.
And in case they only call it "innovative" to get more people to download it...that sounds a fishy move. Calling something super top-notch innovative without the product actually being that innovative...meh.

You haven't been to many Tech forums then

 

Head-Fi, OCN, and all the other big tech blogs/forums have high school enthusiasts or college engineers. That's it.

 

 

A lot of this 'self explanatory' stuff would have been EASILLY thought out and analyzed by even the simplest of people if not for the fact that most 'techphiles' today go to forums and blogs to get their own opinions spoon-fed to them about why this sucks, that sucks etc etc.

 

Like you think Apple doesn't know that another company didn't have a finger print scanner before?

 

And that Google and Microsoft don't know how many hundreds of millions they lose a year? That they lose it from faulty investements in software pitches/projects their employees get to do and then get hundreds of tech blog posts making fun of their crap software? Yeah, Microsoft and Goolge know. They also know that the good news is NEVER reported and that because they make so many project investments, that the ones that do succeed, make them hundreds of billions a year and promote a healthy company atmosphere and that they couldn't care less that the .01% enthusiats that circle jerk the news about how many millions they lose

 

I'm severely dissapointed with people and news/information today. Ready information and big news sites and niche forums etc have created a generation of people who get tech, ideas, analyzation spoon fed to them without ever wondering about the true other side of the story or why company X does what it does.

 

 

 

post #90506 of 149516

Apple pretty much says that for anything they release. They might as well make their slogan: "The world's most advanced ___."

 

OS X's recent startup sounds seem to make a dying cry. lol

 

 

 

This is depressing. Need more awesome-sauce music. I actually remember hearing this music when installing Windows XP for the first time on the family's old, old desktop.

lol if our tech giants actually sucked, we wouldnt be using their stuff.

I think most people know that....  people bash big companies for the lolz imo (then again I could be completely wrong.)

Bowei, IMO it's because nobody really ******* cares about how the big companies are run. I don't and most people seem to be the same as me.
