I do agree with you. This, however, is a Mac rumor site. Therefore we're talking about apple consumer electronics. I have no clue as to how you can infer what my priorities are outside of apple products and their issues. I donate money, food, and my time to shelters so that children in my area have meals. So shame on you for telling me that I'm a bad person for addressing a relevant issue on a site dedicated to the aforementioned topic(s). If you don't want to talk about gadgets then get off this site and give Bono a call and get working on solving world hunger. That is all.

They got rid of the "Computer" part years ago! It's been "Apple, Inc." since Jan 9, 2007.

P.S. Authorized apps from app store do not "lock up" the entire OS in such a manner as described. #endfreehint
Apparently you're wrong. I've had this phone about a year; I've had the entire phone lock up or slow down to the point of being unusable 50-60 times (little more than once a week), and during that time, those buttons were unresponsive or so slow to respond that they were useless. In addition, they often did not properly respond to a long press vs a short tap, which is supposed to bring up different functions at times. My frustration with this doesn't change if it's supposed to happen or not, but the fact remains that it does happen on a regular basis.

And what "authorized apps from the app store" are you referring to? The virtually uncurated Google Play Store? Yeah, that's the only type of apps I have on my phone, and I've had this happen in the browser, the Google Search app, the phone app (!), and other preinstalled applications in addition to downloaded applications. Don't tell me it doesn't happen.

It's just an extension of their "Make it thinner, make it longer" design campaign.

Yeah, that's "seems" to be at the same time, Apple, Inc. gave up on greater frequency rate of refreshes of their "COMPUTER" segment, ie. iMac, MacPro. Thus the "symbolism" of my comment.

It's now only laptops, iPods to an extent, iPhones, iPads and rumored iPad Mini! You think any of these products would go for an (according to MacRumors Buyer's Guide) 500 to 700 day refresh?

I remember the name change though, thank-you very much. I watched the Keynote when Steve made the announcement.

CES 2011 says Hi!

Glad Apple is also researching this. Flexible displays are going to really make device design explode as multiple shapes will be possible now instead of a flat surface.

Transparent display is also another area vendors need to start exploring.
Good job being first to post!

Not possible on an LCD. Requires shifting to an (O)LED screen. Apple won't do that until they solve Burn-In.

In other words, many moons away.
