  1. Some users have discovered an unexpected issue with their shiny new iPhone 5s: a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). The BSoD is most commonly associated with Windows, where a kernel error would cause the computer to reboot after a message...

    I guess the rumors that Apple Copied WP design was true! They just snatched the code apparently!!!

    Now MS should sue Apple. You'd think Apple would've at least had the decency to design their own BSOD using a different colour and not ape MS's.

    Maybe Apple is working on the three finger salute as well :p

    Looks like a conflict between the Innovation5s.ipa and Innovation4s.ipa archives. Because QuantumLeap (the software that Apple sells with each new generation of iPhone) sometimes gets confused by the similarity of different versions of Innovation and is required to boot the OS, BSoD have been known to occur ever since the 2nd generation iPhone. Because iOS7 doesn't let users disable QuantumLeap, the only solution is to downgrade to a more practical phone. Specifically, the iPhone 4.

    In other words, even with a severely limited number of models Apple still can't program anything right.

    so apple should have a green 'blue screen of death'?. just kidding Skidmarksdeluxe...(because you posted first what I had in my mind before reading your post)
     
  15. If Apple can sue Samsung for having a black rectangular phone, surely Microsoft can sue Apple for having a blue crash screen.

  18. I never had Windows 7 BSOD. But I switched to Ubuntu over the whole NSA backdoor fiasco. It took a hit on my gaming... but we have Steam for Linux, and with SteamOS coming along, we can expect tons of Linux support for gaming! :)

    1. what does this have to do with BSOD on iPhones
    2. switching from windows to ubuntu didn't make it any harder for someone to look into what your doing

    Back on topic, this is a bummer for all those iphone early adopters they have prob become use to a more stable experience right out of the box. Seems like any iPhone with the letter 5 attached has been pretty bad at launch.
     
  20. It's not about what I or anyone is doing, it's the principle.
