is this enough to keep me coming here? Nope.. I love this site and the people on the forums...I just wont be telling many people to "check out the iMore site.." "the what?"..."the iMore site, you know the former TiPB site..".

But if you took a quick look at www.imore.com, it doesn't register like it would with, say, androidcentral.com.Sprint iPhone 5 16GB - iOS 6.0.2

..and to abbreviate it sounded silly too imo, is it tibby? Tippy? Tibbib? or Tipbib?
iMore IS a little meh... But again, as long as the content remains the same, im not really fussed.

I'm not crazy about it, but I didn't really care for TiPb either. Speaking of which, as I write this it's still listed as iPhone, iPad, iPod Forums at iMore.com > TiPb Help and Discussion Forums > TiPb Feedback > (see attached image)
My bigger issue so far is that the color scheme has changed enough so that (on my laptop anyway) it's difficult to see where the text input fields are in some of the forum reply screens.

The imore is an adjustment for sure. But what about calling it iOS-Nation.
Thinking about the TiPb fans they are the TiPb nation. Now they are the imore nation?
What about the iTeam?! Get it? Eh..eh?

I would be ok with iWhatever but I'm just not sold on iMoreCleveland

And, I'm not trying to push my preference on others, so I've got no reason to go and join an android forum to talk about how awesome iPhone is. That's like going to a KKK meeting and trying to show people the latest queen latifah movie...

iOS Nation or iNation or iJim, iBob, iGeorge... anything but iSue... I mean iMore. I could fart a better name than that. Seriously! Coming from pre central and android central this was the 1st iOS news site i visited. its sad to see the way this site has been run into the ground. always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to news or rumors compared to 9to5mac and Macrumors. the podcasts are becoming unbearable... and don't get me started on GGG. incredibly stupid! I don't see how anyone can bear to listen to Georgia anymore on these podcasts. like nails on a chalkboard. TUAW has an awesome site and could use a rebrand themselves but I hope paying careful attention to the fast and steady decline of TiPB should they decide to.

iMore? Really? Did someone let their 5 year old come up with that?
Sorry to sound rash and I am not bashing the site, but seriously? The new name is outright weak. I saw it on twitter and said "WTF is this?" and unfollowed it before I realized it was tipb under a new name.
Me no like.

I was surprised, and didn't like it at FIRST, but the name has grown on me. The truth of the matter is that the platform is SO much more than JUST phones now. Yes I know that shortening the name DID help, BUT I think this helps even more. (or should I say iMore??? lol) I have never own and probably never will own an iphone, BUT I have owned several ipod touches and I now own an ipad, and with this new name I feel that I can connect more (there's that word again!!!) to the site. I really like the new name, it has grown on me! Change is GOOD!!!!!Visitor from CrackBerry.com! PK's BlackBerry Help Thread
