Well you can tell I'm not an apple fan boi

Watching the keynote now and it sounds like a critique from art school where someone is trying to put as many buzzwords as possible into their description....and the professor would call them out on it 9 times out of 10.

they clearly struggle without as strong of a leader as Jobs. A good friend of mine from grade school worked for them for a decade or so and where Jobs was a whip-cracker, he got results

+1

Though I was hoping with Jobs gone, some of the stupid things would change.

For instance: when playing music on my iPhone, how about make the lock screen controls way bigger for easier use? Things like that.

Having an unlocked iPhone is awesome, though. In Chile, I paid $8 for a sim card, then $25 for 500mb of data, and a bunch of voice minutes. Way better than those AT&T bastards! And I had a strong signal everywhere I went (except the desert, but whatever).

for the 5s, spec bump, fingerprint authentication, and motion coprocessor. the motion coprocessor might enable some cool things, but otherwise, eh.

the 5c is basically the regular 5 moved to a cheaper (and more colorful) manufacturing process (using plastic instead of aluminum).

"And iOS7 will be available unbelievably for free"

Well considering your rivals don't charge for updates why would this be a surprise?

Apple has gotten very uppity in the last few years, doing things like requiring you to have an Apple ID account to do simple things like network the music that you already own. I hate that crap.

Yeah I know I just haven't found anything so far to make me want to change. Maybe if the Ubuntu phone really does come to life .... or if my company decides to buy a BB10 server I'll go to the Z30 or whatever they are going to call it.

I'm wondering if I should upgrade my 4s to iOS7?

Any thoughts?
