Apple dump the home button. Instead, "Siri, open sesame".

Can't wait until Apple goes with an EDGE-to-EDGE display! It's going to be so awesome!

Don't knock the home button. I've got a Samsung phone with those stupid capacitive buttons along the bottom of the screen, and if an app locks up or is running poorly, my only recourse is to restart the whole phone (or wait it out). With a physical button, I'm not dependent on the buttons being recognized and I can force quit the app. Plus, it simply looks and feels nicer.

If you're going to focus on one thing at a time, get your priorities straight.

Well my battery life is actually better under iOS6. What really bothers me is how dang flat and inflexible my screen is.

Perhaps Apple should concentrate on getting items out of the factories without scuffs and faults etc before they move onto something this elaborate!

Now we're getting somewhere!
  1. Promote abstinence
  2. Feed the world
  3. Fix iOS 6 battery-life issues
  4. Develop phones with flexible displays

Sounds like a game plan.

Flat screens. So 2007.

I didn't know you could patent etch-a-sketch drawings.

Is Apple just filing patents for future Samsung fodder?

huh? why are you linking abstinence to preventing unwanted children? thats silly. to prevent unwanted children all you need is easy access to birth control. thats much more reasonable than asking sexually mature and active adults to stop engaging in perfectly normal human behavior. sex is good for you.

Looks like we have a new number 1. First we must determine the best method to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

Then we can get around to fixing my phone. This rigid display is defective by design.

Some people do not understand how to use the "back" and "home" button... They are recognized by the OS, not the app...*facepalm*

Waterproof

I really hope this is bringing us closer to a waterproof cell? Mic and speaker is really the key there.

So in the case he described, you are saying the App locked up the whole OS?

Good to know. *faceplam* indeed.

September 2013:

Apple has announced the new iPhone 6. This is phone is completely flexible and water proof! Phill Schiller and Tim Cook climb into a water tank and play underwater hand-ball with their phone. They climb out of the water and call each other by accessing Siri using telepathy.


Here are the headlines we would see:

Engadget: iPhone 6 Disappoints
BGR: iPhone 6 is Boring
AI: Analysts Concerned with Apple's Ability to Innovate
MacRumors: Does the iPhone 6 Disappoint?
Android Police: iPhone still trying to catch Android.

Please re-read quotes before replying and implying. Thank you.

P.S. Authorized apps from app store do not "lock up" the entire OS in such a manner as described. #endfreehint

lol...There wouldn't be "holes" in the touch panel of the display...But you're right, that would be a VERY bad idea.
