I hear you, what a joke, are they sure this wasn't 5.2??
How do they expect to keep up with the competition?
They didn't update the ui one bit, still the same stale and dated rows of dead icons, no widgets, no notification icon, nada..
Oh but if you don't have a job and sit around posting crap on Facebook all day you're set.
It feels like more and more Apple is turning the iPhone into a dumbphone, nothing they added helps my job at all, the Galaxy 3 looks like it's got ten years on the iPhone with its stuck in 07 OS.

They aren't reinventing themselves.
This is iOS 6. This is what the new iPhone will ship with. They didn't do too much with Siri, so people weren't too excited by that. But this was a nice solid upgrade, a must-have.

I'm fine with the updates. I'm sure the rest of the iOS 6 features will drop with the iphone 5 or be iphone 5 only. I'm ok with that since i always upgrade.
To be honest though, the event today was zzzzz til iOS 6 part. I could care less about hearing about Macs & OSX (ML was already previewed previously) in that much detail. They could have went over itunes, apple tv, icloud updates, etc.

Might as well get a cheap 4S in the fall off contract if you really want to stay with Apple.
The jailbreak devs must be happy, there's no shortage of stuff for them to make money on since Apple refuses to innovate with the iPhone.

I don't see why people expected a radical update. They have NEVER been that company. Maybe when they were nearly dead in the 90's and needed OS X. Or maybe when they went from power pc to intel. Everyone knows this. OS 7 will probably be the same. Nothing radical. For those who aren't happy, you're free to go wherever you want.

They waited a whole year to put out a total dud, something that should have been a point release, you'll see around the web that most people feel the same way.
And yes, I just looked up the release date for the Galaxy 3, comes out early next month, no more waiting for years hoping Apple adds stuff all other phones have had for years, I'll post some comparison shots once I get it to see if it can take pics as well as my iPhone 4.
