    Overclocking is always fun and exciting. I liked doing it to my Android phone, but with the much added smoothness it brought, it also took away precious battery life.

    I thought the very same way you did about flash when I had my Android phone, I was scared that I would miss it when I acquired my iPhone, but I did not. It wasn't that much of a necessity unless I wanted to view adds, and waste electricity.

    Marketing for Apple has always been one of their strength's, but I disagree that a commercial can bring smoothness to an operating system or somehow cloud one's judgement into thinking that a horrible phone is actually a good one.

    Who said it was horrible? Thought this was good old fashioned ribbing.

    Seriously, the iPhone is an excellent device, just not for me. I have problems with the litigation happy company. Ignoring that, the device doesn't work for me.

    I'm picky. I don't mind (actually want to) tinkering with my device. I want to customize, optimize, and achieve that sense of nirvana when all is as I want. I don't want to use iTunes, and I want to update, flash, and go. I want to overclock or under volt/underclock. In a nutshell I want the phone to be all mine. Root once, not time after time.

    I loved my Mac, and I always will. I accept and respect the accomplishments Apple has made. It's just not my bag. I also can't stand the patent wars that Apple continues to drag on and on.

    I do however reserve the right to (playfully) pick on its fans.

    We are ribbing, man. I am in no way fighting for Apple's honor or deeply offended by your heckling with the iPhone fans. I just wanted to pick on you too.

    I agree with you on the iTunes. It's horrible. Steve Jobs needs to be charged with crimes against humanity for exposing good people like myself to this monstrosity. I don't mind the trouble of having to re-jailbreak my iPhone cause I like OS updates, and I like knowing that my phone is on the latest build. I sometimes look in the mirror after a Jailbreak, and tell myself what a bad man I am.

    I felt the same way after rooting. Just laughed.

    I have my issues with android. Well mostly the craptastic sense and touchwiz. Actually looking now at a stock honeycomb build.

    I just wonder what the 5 will bring to the table. Dual 1.5, 4.3 inch screen, credit application required?

    Vanilla Android in my favorite. I dabbled with Sense and Touchwiz, but saw nothing but an extra layer of code that would bog my device down.

    The processor will be appropriate for the device. I hope for a dual 1.5, but thats just the glutton in me wishing out loud. The screen needs to be bigger, If the screen is the same size I may pass, and wait for one of them Galaxy S devices or save myself the heart attacks and go with another Nexus phone.

    Credit checks and psyche evaluations or left for the Blackberry people.
