We’re just two days away from either having the iPhone 4S show up on our doorstep or getting in line to pick one up. A couple of days ago, one of our staff writers started asking who was going to take the plunge and buy one. That was a good question the way I saw it, because from the comments I’ve been reading, many of you are on the fence as to whether or not your’re going to spend the cash.
In an attempt to help you make your decision (if you haven’t already) I figured I’d ask our staff that very question: Are you buying one? And if so, what model? Our answers are after the break.
A week or so ago, I was going through my usual routine and looking at our sister site, Mac.AppStorm, when I found an excellent post by Jorge Rodriguez titled, “Our Favorite Apps: What the AppStorm Crew Couldn’t Live Without.” Anytime I read a post like that, I always come away with new apps for my arsenal that I had either never used before or never thought of, and that’s exactly what happened this time.
With that in mind, I decided to “borrow” Jorge’s concept and do the same thing over here at iPhone.AppStorm. I contacted our team and asked them what their favorite apps were. The answers might surprise you.
I was at lunch the other day with a few friends of mine, and I noticed one of their home screens was setup substantially differently than mine. Where I’ve got apps all over the place, my buddy had two folders in the dock and two apps up top with a gorgeous wallpaper to show off. When I got home, I noticed that my wife had just folders on her home screen, and just the phone icon in the dock. That got me thinking — what do our reader’s home screens look like?
With that in mind, I decided to put it to the test and get some feedback from you, the reader. Want to know more? Hit the jump and find out!
The last decade has been rough for the world’s most iconic CEO. In 2004, it was discovered that Jobs had pancreatic cancer. He underwent several treatments and Tim Cook took over operations while Steve began a successful recovery. By the end of 2008, Jobs was taking another health related leave of absence and received a liver transplant in April of 2009.
Fast-forward to 2011 and Steve has once again made an announcement that he will be taking a leave of absence to focus on his health. As the world wonders how long Jobs can possibly continue in his fractured state, we can’t help but be concerned not only about his well being, but that of the company that he has dedicated his life to building.
What will Apple be like in a post-Steve era? Can it continue its seemingly never-ending winning streak or will it take a turn for the worst like it did when Steve was booted out in the 80s?
