I know this has been said before, but I felt compelled to write something after reading the numerous articles raiding the techno blogs after Apple's iPhone 4S release. Everyone is so disappointed with Apple over a "spec" bump to the iPhone 4. I've read countless articles saying Android is taking over because Apple is now behind the "spec" war. Apple didn't increase the screen size, Apple didn't use a chip that's cutting edge, Apple only increased the camera & chip and wants everyone to pay a premium. Really people? Really? On a spec to spec comparison, I'll admit Apple isn't at the top of the heap. However, Apple doesn't care about specs, nor do they only focus only on smartphones. Does HTC & Samsung build MBP's, iMacs, AppleTVs, iPods, iTouches, iPads, etc.? Apple does more than focus 100% of its attention on smartphones. Again, it's all about the hardware & software stupid! It doesn't matter if a smartphone has a 10.6GHZ 8-core processor if the software is bogus. It's about the seamless integration and user experience. The iPhone 4 (let alone, the iPhone 4S) performed flawlessly. Furthermore, with the offerings Apple has unveiled this year, the iPhone now is even more useful. Apple has devoted a significant amount of time in the past year on bringing their server farms online to offer the masses iCloud. Say what you want about Apple's implementation of iCloud, but iCloud is an innovative solution for the masses. Take a photo, and it's instantly pushed to all your devices! Buy a song or book from iTunes and it's instantly pushed to all your devices. Read part of that book on your iPhone and pick up at the same spot on the iPad. Make a calendar appointment and....you guessed it! Share a calendar with your friends or family. All this without the user having to think about it! No tweaking, no tinkering with complex settings...it just happens! Complete integration! Apple has devoted a significant amount of time improving their iOS this past year. I'm not debating iOS versus Android...I'm just saying these improvements come at a cost in terms of man hours spent refining it. iWorks...across all devices is now seamless. Siri...the jury is out, but all indications point to a smashing industry innovation. Airplay mirroring! AirPrint! The list goes on and on. The iPhone 4S WILL run the iOS software like a hot knife through butter. So what's the point of arguing over specs? I can see some wanting a larger screen...but that's what the iPad is for. Apple understands the larger screen will have an impact on battery life (user experience suffers). These idiots love to talk about specs and how Apple is losing the battle...market shares will go down...Apple is done for...etc! What are these bloggers smoking? The user experience is so much better and only getting better. I love how my Apple devices now stay wirelessly in tune with each other. It's amazing to comprehend all the improvements Apple has given us this year. To compare 1 of Apple's devices (the iPhone) based on specs alone is ludicrous and fails to adequately inform the reader of its unique capabilities across all Apple electronics. Sorry for ranting, but these bloggers are losing their minds.
