When I bought my black iPhone 5, I was ecstatic. I loved the matte black and gloss black finishes, and figured that there was no way that I’d ever put a case on such a beautiful device. I’m an adult, I can be careful, right?
Yeah, not so much. While I never had dropping issues with my iPhone 4S, I seem to be quite the klutz with my 5, and now it has little silver chips to remind me of my past mistakes. My wife’s, meanwhile, looks brand new. Must be that fancy plastic case she has.
So what about you? Do you use a case on your iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!
A few weeks back, Apple had a pretty big shakeup in their management structure. Out is Scott Forstall, and in his place is Craig Federighi, who will handle both iOS and OS X. But the big news is Jony Ive’s expanded role. From the official press release:
“Jony Ive will provide leadership and direction for Human Interface (HI) across the company in addition to his role as the leader of Industrial Design. His incredible design aesthetic has been the driving force behind the look and feel of Apple’s products for more than a decade.”
Understand that although Ive isn’t in charge of iOS directly, because he’s handling direction for Human Interface, he will have an impact on the way OS X and iOS looks in the future. Many are theorizing that this means we’ll lose the felt in Game Center and the leather padding in Calendar, but we want to know what you think. Will Jony Ive help make his mark on iOS, or will his touch be more subtle? Let us know in the poll to the right!
We’re always looking for new ideas around here, and when the concept of doing an entire week on one topic came up, we decided to give it a go. I mean, everyone loves productivity apps, right? So why not go really in depth with the topic and see what happens?
But now we want to know what you think. Did you like productivity week? If so, would you like to see other themed weeks like Game Week, Lifestyle Week or anything else? Let us know in the poll to the right, and give us some specifics in the comments. Thanks!
When I bought my first iPhone — an iPhone 3G — I really wanted a white one. To me, a white iPhone was going to stand out from the rest, and I just liked it. The following year, I wanted black because the white got dirty too easily. Today, I really don’t care, I just want it to look good.
I’ve got friends though, who want any color possible on their iPhone. Pink, blue, green — it doesn’t matter, they only want some kind of color, because they want their iPhone to stand out.
What about you? Do you care about the color of your iPhone or does it matter at all? Let us know in the poll on the right, or make a comment!
The other day I ran into a buddy of mine who I hadn’t seen in a long time, and I noticed that he was using an original iPhone. I was shocked — not only that he hadn’t upgraded, but that it still held a charge. But he was happy with it, so he felt no reason to upgrade. Then I ran into a friend of mine who bought an iPhone 3G when it was deeply discounted (but still a new phone), and he loves it too.
So how about you? What model iPhone do you have? Let us know in the poll, and if you’ve got any interesting stories about it, tell us in the comments.
Remember when 4.3 was announced and everyone flocked to get all the new features? I remember, and right after I updated I had mammoth problems with my iPhone. It took me a few days to get it straightened out, and if I had just waited a few days and read the reports of other people having similar issues, then I would have known to wait.
Now iOS 5 is coming out sometime soon, and the question is, do we update right away or wait a bit to hear what the Internet collectively says about any problems that could happen? Answer in the poll to the right, and let’s figure it out.
We should be finding out about the new iPhone any day now, but there’s been talk recently about AT&T and Verizon dropping the prices on the iPhone 4 in anticipation of the new model. This is nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years now. But it made me wonder about our reading audience. When do you all buy your iPhones? Do you stand in line on launch day, wait a bit, or scoop them up at sale prices? Let us know in the poll to the right.
When I worked at a local office, I used to walk to a nearby restaurant for lunch and watch a movie on my iPhone while eating. But now, I eat more at home or with a buddy, so the opportunity doesn’t really present itself to watch anything with the iPhone. What about you? Do you prefer to use the iPhone as one of your main video sources or would you rather watch video on something bigger like an iPad or regular television? Let us know in the poll.
A week or so back, I tweeted about a statistic I had seen online. The premise was that the average iOS customer spends around $150 on apps. At the time, I joked that I probably spent more than that in a few months, but then I started thinking about it. Frankly, it kind of festered in my head for a bit. Why does that number seem low to me?
So to get it out of my head, I decided to put it to a poll. Please select from the options on the right, and then we can check back on the results later to see how much our readers spend per year.
Last week we talked about syncing your iPhone, and that got me thinking about the current iPhone syncing situation in my close family. I’m a Mac guy, and my mother is a recent convert as well, so we both sync our iPhones to our Macs. But my father and my wife both use PCs to do their syncing, and I don’t see that changing anytime in the near future.
Conventional logic says that our reading audience is going to skew primarily to the Mac side of things, but I’m curious: Do you sync your iPhone to your PC or your Mac? Place your vote here, and check back often for the results.
