I have had little or no trouble with Apple maps. The voice interface is pretty cool.

It’s true, I’ve fallen away from the Church of Apple. I’m sort of an Apple apostate. I used to be very zealous about computers and a lot of things. I’m much less zealous about anything these days. All those PC versus Mac days are long gone for me. I was on the Mac side back when but not for at least the last 20 years or so.
I don’t have anything against Apple or people who buy Apple products. I even buy stuff from Apple for my daughter. It’s good stuff. It’s just not for me personally. And I’m definitely not in the cult of Apple. I’m more like a post “Cult of Apple” survivor now.
Whenever anyone asks me, “What phone should I get?” I consider who is asking. If it is someone who is not very technically inclined, I immediately say, “Get an iPhone” or “Get a Mac”. Mostly because I don’t want to be providing any assistance or technical support to their cheaper and harder to use Android phone or PC.
I can dislike Apple and be still be friends with Apple fans or fanboys or fangirls. LOL.

2 years seems like a good time period to have a phone.. I am still quite happy with my iPhone 4 after 22 months. I think that I will have to wait an additional 4 months for the iPhone 5 to come out. Even so, I am not sure how badly I want to upgrade since I am still quite happy with the 4. I will most likely upgrade.
I’m getting ready to drop my $80 monthly post-paid, off contract and move to a pre-paid $50 dollar, unlimited text, voice and data plan with a $600 phone soon. I can only stay with a phone for 18 months before I start climbing the walls so I don’t want to buy the phone on contract. Contracts just suck all around for me. So I’ll buy the phone off contract and drop the traditional carrier.
This is the one I’m looking at:
I’m going to try them out for a month. If I’m still happy, I’ll move my primary number over to them. They say they don’t support 4G but everyone on the boards say their phones operate at 4G.
It doesn’t make sense to sell a $500 phone on a prepaid plan.

There is a game called Snappers on the iPhone. I don’t know if it is available for android. It is a puzzle game that is similar to nuclear fission.
I love the game. Some of harder puzzles have taken either several minutes of trial and error or several minutes of thinking or some combination of both for me to figure them out.

I have gotten 4Mb just from my office. Somebody I know with a 4S phone got 5Mb from the Salt Lake Community College, where I only got 3Mb with my iPhone 4 from the same location. His phone showed a “4G” network even though his phone is not technically 4G. Until recently I could only get about .5Mb. - John Coffey
1st Verizon – 8 Mb
2nd T-Mobile – 5.281 Mb
3rd Sprint – 3.412 Mb
1st AT&T – 2.7 Mb

Apple waited till a couple of hours after the iPad 3 announcement to drop the price on the iPad 2.

Been watching the counter for awhile. It just went from 24,966
million to 24,905 million when I did a refresh of my web browser.
This tells me two things: The website counter is not real time and
occasionally they update it to bring it in align with reality.

I saw 2 tablets last night that look interesting. One is the Blackberry Playbook with a new O.S. that appears to be a fully loaded 7 inch tablet. It was around $199 and so was another 7 inch android tablet that I looked at.
Having looked at many tablet options last night, it is easy to see that Apple has a ton of competition. I see Apple losing market share.
It is time that Kindle Fire got a SW upgrade.

If true, then I think that this is going to bomb big time. $500 is bad enough for a tablet. If the iPad2 is not discounted to around $350, then I am going to take another look at the Nook or the Kindle.

I was talking with Marty M. He said since the beginning of the new year or in the last few weeks the throughput here in the office has gone up considerably. He is getting 1 Mbit and 1 Mbit up sitting at his desk on his iPad. He ran the test in my cubicle also. They must of activated a new tower nearby recently. I can barely get 33 kbits on T-Mobile sitting at my desk unless I go outside, then I get comparable to what he is getting. But for 99% of stuff I’m too lazy to walk outside just so I can download something that’s big. Which is probably a good thing for not getting distracted.
… maybe a reason to switch to Sprint.
