    iphone 4s...

    I'm already sick of listening to all these stoopid phones. I predict more than a few will get smashed on the ground by those who don't want to sit and listen to you conversing with your phone. It's noise pollution plain and simple.

    I'd feel like a retard talking to an electronic device. It would be an unused feature If I had one.

    I'm due up for a new phone, whatever I get she'll get. Probably another Android device, although I will check out the iphone as much as I can before I make my decision.

    This.

    I like the feature that you can voice-command SMS texting. Pretty soon we'll even be able to call someone on our phones.

    Eh, this would be useful with my wife. Who, since returning to college, has insisted on texting. I refuse to text while driving, but if I don't reply the continuation of texts is inevitable. Easier to tell the phone to text back and say 'driving' rather than pull over, and do the same thing.

    In my own car, however, it ain't additional noise pollution. I fully agree with that complaint.

    To get the weather, you need the forecast stone:

    I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.

    I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver's full of $hit, man.

    I like those guys for the unintentional comedy... they look like they're walking around muttering to themselves.

    I always think of them as the well-dressed homeless.

    but it only ever matters when apple finally catches up with everyone else. Next apple will get NFC and it will be another huge " iNnovation " and everyone will make a big stink about it, while everyone else who is using anything but an iphone will quietly go about there business because they have been doing it for the past 5 years.

    The consensus seems to be that Siri's better than similar 'voice assistants', though.

    Apple isn't always first with a new technology or product segment, but they do tend to do ones that they can make/re-make in such a way that consumers go, "Oh, I get it now... I really really need and want that."

    Tablets were around before the iPad. But not many ppl wanted them, 'til the iPad 'did it right'. Ditto MP3 players. Ditto smartphones in general.

    Some ppl don't get this, though. They tend to think it's all 'hypnotic marketing'. If only advertising really was that powerful, all by its lonesome.

    Dude. Totally.

    While we're at it, what did the Android smartphone look like before the iPhone came along? Did the Blackberry have a touchscreen? Did Windows phones have pinch zooming and real, functional browsers? What was the App world like with any of those?

    Thought so.

    "5 years" ago you were probably using a computer to go online and order another stylus 3-pack for your Treo because god knows you couldn't do something like that on a phone.

    Now that everyone has jumped on board and copied the 5 years of evolution the iPhone rolled out on its first release, yes, ALL these companies are leap-frogging and playing catch-up and rip-off.

    If you listen to all the whiners on the Apple forums it would seem the biggest problem with the iPhone 4S is poor battery life. I don't see a problem here, just carry a spare battery or two. Oh, forgot, the user can't change the battery like they can in a Droid.

    If only they had used Majel Barrett's voice, i.e. 'the Star Trek computer' voice.

    However and alas, she passed away in 2008.
