  1. Despite the apparent disappointment from the absence of a redesigned iPhone 5 at last week's press event, Apple has revealed this morning that pre-orders for the iPhone 4S have topped…

    I wish I could be part of it, alas, I don't have that kind of money lying around at the moment. Grant it, I am saving the pennies for one of these.
  3. If you will make it they will come; especially if you are a company like Apple and a nation like America.

    America is not a nation its a continent.
  5. Ahh, but there is South America and there is North America.

    Are we really nitpicking like that? Lighten up, you know what he meant.

    Anyways, I'm glad to see Apple rolling in success because it only puts the pressure on everyone else to one-up Apple. In return, Apple will try to one-up everyone else, it's a win for everyone.

    Finally, more decent pricing for hard drive space. Nice work, Apple. Now the prices SOMEWHAT resemble the value of the product.

    I'm actually considering ditching my Windows Phone 7 and getting the 4S. I never liked Apple, but I always loved their products. Such is the irony.

    I've never been a good early adopter of anything, I admit; I love polished software, but until Microsoft stops being lazy with WP7 and starts updating it at least TWICE a year, and stop playing catch-up, I can't take the platform seriously. (Seriously, Mango brought in speech-to-text, and text-to-speech, only to be obliterated by iOS' Siri, and not to mention it was already vastly inferior to Android's voice capabilities. What major feature is left then? Multitasking, and contacts grouping? Congrats Microsoft, welcome to 2008).

    I will undoubtedly go back to WP7 (because I love what the OS represents) but only until it has grown. Right now it's just a baby in need of a diaper, with a mother who wants him to be a football player when he grows up, but is too lazy to even drive him to practice.

    I could have gone to Android (which I like), but out of the three, it currently is the most insecure and inefficient. So, in essence, I think what I'm saying is that I'm part of the million. :)

    Really? The 32GB version is £100 more than the 16GB one, that's about £6/$10 per GB!
