  1. Developers recently discovered a couple of hidden features in Apple's iOS 5. Of the new surprises, panoramic picture mode for the iOS camera app and an Android-like autocorrect bar for…

    Apple was probably going to pass those off as an update soon anyway.

    Sooooo...nobody can make a phone that looks anything like Apple's, but Apple can make a feature that looks like Androids...yeah, that sounds fair /sarcasm
     
  4. It doesn't really matter that they made it as long as it was made for internal use only. Its not there fault someone hacked the phone and found an "Internal Feature".

    What exactly is the purpose of your comment? What do you mean it doesn't matter as long as it is for internal use only? The fact that's "internal use only" does not take away the fact that they still developed it.

    And what do you mean it's not their "fault"? Who is blaming anybody? Did you know that imitation is the sincerest form of flaterry? Why is it so bad to admit Android has a lot of features iOS developers truly wish to add to their platform? And vice-versa?

    You see, what I get from your comment is that, apparently, this is not something Apple <i>would</i> do. Don't tell me you are one of those people that acutally believe Apple invented the touchscreen phone...?

    Hell, seeing with how much passion Steve Jobs hated Android, just with the notification center in iOS 5, he must be turning in his grave...
     
  6. Wow really innovative stuff right here. Certainly haven't seen these before /s
     
  7. You gumby.
     
  8. Jobs thought Android was a stolen product, and yet here Apple is stealing features from Android?


    In what universe does this make sense?
     
  9. This kind of assisted input has been standard for Japanese input on many OS's for a decade or more - including the earliest iOS of course. I think Chinese uses something similar, possibly other languages too. So simply doing it for English is hardly what I'd call an innovation in the first place.

    Taught android is open source therefore anybody can use its features anyway they like therefore apple can use anything they like that looks androidish
     
  11. Wow, So much assumed from such a short comment.

    Regardless, the original point still stands: what was the purpose of your comment?
     
  13. Android vs iPhone
    iPhone vs Android

    stfu. who cares what phones either of us like.

    I like Coke, you like pepsi. Does it really matter? no..

    Just because you like your phone better then my phone, does not mean that it is or is not better.
    Its all a matter of personal preference. Everyone *(EVERYONE)* steals ideas from elsewhere.
    At least sometimes. So both teams get off their high horses and stfu and get along!
