Oh and one more thing... making the iphone5 longer but not any wider is the most ignorant thing in the world. All that accomplished is either distorted video or the same exact size video as the 4s. There is a reason why the galaxy is so popular..... the screen size makes sense. You don't need a whole bunch of different devices if you have a big enough display with a phone. I went against my gut feelling over the last few months and now I am paying the price. A great company would never have done such a ridiculous move. Any videophile would have laughed at that proposal. It's nothing but poor planning and arrogance. There might be a short term pop after earnings (i hope so in order for me to get out) but the decisions being made are suspect at best at this point.
Do you even think about what you write before you write it? So the iPhone 5 16X9 screen gives distorted video? That's astonishing, as well as ridiculous! In spouting that BS, you've just dissed EVERY HDTV with a 16X9 screen (which is ALL OF THEM), because logically if a 16X9 screen on an iPhone distorts video, then it would also be true that every HDTV with a 16X9 screen (again....ALL OF THEM) would distort video too.
The reason why people buy Samdung ugly pocket ripping phablets is because they can't afford iPhones, or they've decided they don't need the Apple ecosystem. But then if they really understood what a horribly fragmented, malware infested POS android is, they might have second guessed that decision.
Agreed, he needs a good kick in his #$%$ as well. Cook is an absentee leader. He hides instead of leads. He is not demanding excellence from everyone like Jobs did. Do you really think the androids would be equal to iphones if Jobs were alive?
When Jobs was alive we had Windows vs Mac. What did Jobs allow to happen then?
Cook is doing a great job. People need to stop glorifying Jobs. He made plenty of mistakes and would be making mistakes now, if alive.
