The iPhone, even the new one, doesnt have enough RAM to support running 20 apps in the background like android does. (not that the android takes it without a hitch either, it also slows down a bit)

iOS smooth?Lols yeah sure when its still in "stock" with no additional apps,but once you start adding one whole page of apps it starts being choppy,even with dual core (yeap experienced it myself with the 4S) so you can stop with the iOS is smooth nonesense.

So sad you have to lie.

I on the other hand have used all three mobile OS's with photos to prove it, Windows is by far the LEAST user friendly and the most complicated, IOS is for casual users the easiest to understand and for the younger tech enthusiasts which make up the bulk of the buying power, Android it is. Why limit yourself to a very closed limited and boring mobile OS, Windows 8 on the other hand is something to look forward to.

When you build in an area that has freakin' huge hurrycanes crashing into it ... well.. build to last in such conditions.. and stay inside :) (except for paramedics, police and fireman - those are your real heroes today .. not some pink rapper girl ..)

Sad indeed. A little sympathy for the citizens of New York and the other places Sandy is gonna crash into.

All these commenters care about is their stupid event with things we already know everything about.

Obviously some people care more about their stupid gadgets than the lives of others.

Sometimes I almost feel ashamed to call myself a member of the human race when I read stuff like this. I live in the Netherlands by the way. Haven't seen a hurricane in my life but I hope the people in Sandy's path will make it true.
