Exactly. Right now they're saying there's no point to it, but when they introduce it (sorry, invent it!), then it'll be the must have and everybody will be rushing to upgrade their kit.

No, they made that Newton tablet. Now that was innovation. Of course, they learned from their mistakes and never tried that again!

“I hate it,” Wozniak said when asked about the patent fights between Apple and Samsung. “I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it -- very small things I don’t really call that innovative.

“I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.”
I like his attitude.

Have to agree with you on that!
He even spoke my "not innovative" mantra on Apple patents.
I see from that article that even "The Woz" uses a Samsung S3 now and then, although he also mentioned using an i4, just to be fair. "just to be fair" are my words, not his.

It's nice to see Apple's original creative genius in the news again. Thank you.

What's all the fuss is about? There's nothing new in i5, yes, faster processor, yes bigger screen (finally!), perhaps better (but still 8MP) camera... but any of it really new? Looks just as an upgrade to the 4s, should have called it 4ss.

New Windows 8 phones from HTC:

Quote:
At an event today in NYC, HTC unveiled its first two Windows Phone 8 devices: the Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC. Similar to Nokia's next-generation Lumia stack, HTC's Windows Phone 8 lineup includes a high-end flagship and a more affordable mainstream option.

In Apples defense, while the technology is there in quite a few phones, the technology is nearly non existent everywhere else. I've yet to see a place where one could actually use NFC for anything.

I have it on my Android, but know not much at all of it. Never hear others with flagship phones talk of using it either.

There is more than paying when it comes to NFC. I use it daily to automate tasks with NFC tags.

Leave home: a tap disables WiFi, changes volume settings and a few more tweaks.
Get in the car: a tap enables GPS and launches the Nav app. When I leave the car, a 2nd tap disables GPS.
Leave the office: one tap disables WiFi, changes a few other settings and sends an SMS to say "I'm on my way".

The possibilities are endless.
