Thanks and no thanks Cap. Tech maniac? How wrong you are!!!
New Tech Junkie! That´s better!
And yes, I still have TomTom. And alternative apps to sort the shortfalls of the i5.
The criticism is due because it´s true and pertinent! Maps suck! Find Friends suck! Newstand Sucks Major Time! Passbook Sucks - in apartheid South Africa all the blacks had to carry a Passbook! This sis almost the same, wanting to know who you are, where you are, what you do, I'm sure Hendrik Verwoerd (apartheid legislator and prime minister of RSA at the time) has a patent on that.
Another point. I bought (or we all will buy sooner or later) the i5. I didn´t buy Apple Store although its almost implied that you do buy that too. But what I mean is: if you look at the i5 for the apps it has, it sucks! Big time! But of course, you just go and find alternatives and off you go.
As far as finished product (hardware) it´s a classy Apple iteration! It breathes class all over. Especially the white one. But it´s dainty, fragile compared to the i4. So off I went, straight away, and got it a sturdy, clear condom!
The rest you´ll have to wait to know when I review it.
Tech maniac...tsk, tsk!
