After months of speculating, rumours, and patience (and frustration!), the new iPhone has been unveiled. It’s called the iPhone 4S, and boy oh boy, is it ever underwhelming.
Think of when Apple announced the iPhone 3GS. It’s more of a refresh than a completely new phone. The specs have been improved greatly (dual core A5 processor, 8 megapixel camera, Siri voice recognition software, to name some), but not enough to fully justify selling your old iPhone 4 and getting the iPhone 4S. I mean, if you’ve waited this long for them to announce the iPhone 4S, chances are, you can wait another 6 months for them to announce the iPhone 5. I’m looking at you, iSheep.
Apple, thanks for another underwhelming announcement. And Tim Cook will never be like Steve Jobs. Never!!
P.S. I still think the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone released to date, so it comes natural for the iPhone 4S to overthrow its predecessor. I don’t hate the phone itself. I just think the hype wasn’t worth it. All you iSheep, you can go back to worshiping your new messiah, Tim Cook.
Here we go again. Another free track titled Orphans, Kingdoms by Brooke Fraser. Please comment on which code you redeemed, because they can only be used once.
Thank you Starbucks, for providing us loyal iTunes buyers a chance to have free songs every week.
Another week, and here are two new tunes for all to enjoy. First, it’s Gregg Allman’s Just Another Rider. Next track comes from Moccio featuring Jorane with Aqua. Remember to comment on which codes you used, as they can only be used once! Thanks!
Ok, seriously Apple? You’re really going ahead and doing this?
Apple is rumoured to announce the highly anticipated iPad 2 on February 9, 2011. Does this date sound familiar? Of course it does. It’s the date HP/Palm is announcing their version of webOS products. This all sounds eerily similar to when the Palm Pre was about to launch, a couple of days before, Apple announced the iPhone 3GS.
Steve Jobs, you can go suck it.
Another week, another great Starbucks Pick of the Week. Today, it comes from Home Sweet Home, and the track is titled Lady of the Sunshine. The codes to download the free song are listed below, but please remember to comment and say which code you’ve used, as they can only be used once. Thanks!
After the massive success of my first contest, I’ve decided to hold another one! And guess what…the winner gets a pretty cool prize.
When my blog reaches its 100th subscriber or once I reach 100 followers on Twitter (@salamahoy), I will randomly choose one of them, and the winner will receive an INQ Chat 3G Smartphone! It retails for over $100, so I think it’s pretty damn cool just for subscribing to my blog!
Touchscreen? Check. The 9800 form factor? Check. HD Recording? Check. BlackBerry OS 6.1? Check.
Finally. RIM is back in the game. Here is an exclusive look (thanks to BoyGenius) at the BlackBerry Dakota, and it looks sweet. In my opinion, RIM should have ditched the Torch entirely and released this instead. Here are the full specs:
5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, flash, and image stabilization
4GB of built in storage, 768MB of RAM
2.8-inch VGA 640×480 capacitive screen
WiFi b,g,n on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies
3G mobile hotspot!
Launches with BlackBerry OS 6.1
Does anyone else think this is the best BlackBerry that’s going to be released? I do. But they better release it soon. Along the release date of the PlayBook would be perfect timing. And on a side note, the NFC feature is a blatant rip-off of the Nexus S (sorry, had to add the obligatory negative BlackBerry comment).
