    The iOS Blog -> TiB

    Covers all iOS devices, sounds normal and has a meaning too.

    Personally I love the play on the iDevices, but i really don't like iMore.
    Thats why i voted for errrm not sure. I would definitely love to see a different i*insertcatchynamehere* over tipb.

    I'm not crazy about iMore (at all), but I am dying to know what some of the other options they had were. I'm curious to see what it was chosen over.

    I liked TiPb better, iMore hits the ear wrong in my opinion.

    iMore makes me think of Mt. Rushmore.

    It was kinda random- do we really need to add onto the silly "i" thing yet again?

    It's possibly the most annoying name you could think of, on top of that, it doesn't really make sense- is "i" supposed to stand for something?

    I don't love it but at the end of the day it doesn't really matter as I come for the content and discussions, not the name.

    The only change it will make in my life is that I will stop recommending other people come here because I can never remember the new name.

    my first initial reaction was I loved it. Now that it's been a day or 2 of settling in with it,, I'm at "errmmm.....I'm not so sure" I still call it TiPb - when I talk to my kids about something on here, it's still TiPb that I refer to. He11, when I type in the web addy I still use www.TiPb.com !! I haven't even changed my bookmarks on my iPad or iPhone yet either.

    It'll take some time to settle in as iMore now.

    The only question is...Will they change it back, if the majority want it back. Let's see democracy in action.

    I think it's terrible. Tipb was marginally acceptable, but easier than theiphoneblog. Silly name and I am sure the mobile nations people had something to do with it. Icentral, inews, ination....several other names would've been better, provided the domain was available.

    It sucks, it's terrible, makes no sense....but it'll have to to do.

    New name stinks. They already had an i-word, and shrunk it down to the cute "TiPB". That's what it is anyway, a blog....

    Maybe i don't want More.

    What about iSite, iBlog, or iOs Central???

    How about iRobots... or iTards?

    Suppose we call it iDontCare.....

    aaaaaaand... FLAME ON!

    yea....idk if they'd change it back. I think if we had hundreds of members posting here complaining they hate the new name, they may consider it--maybe ??? But as of now, according to the poll votes, only 27 have voted "hate it" so, thats not even a drop in the bucket at this point. Unless, people are going behind the scenes and sending emails about their disapproval.....

    It doesnt really matter to me about the name change - i'll get use to it at some point i guess -- as long as i can come here to a friendly blog environment and post or find out info i may need--thats all that really matters to me If the site starts to change "personality" and become unfriendly/trolling/bashing, thats when i go somewhere else !!

    I kinda like SayntJ's suggestion of iOS Central. That takes it back to basics and fits with the overall MN theme.

    I agree with you on that Alli. When I read SayntJ's post i thought that had a nice ring to it also. iOS Central

    Don't like it at all, but like others have said, I'm already coming here, so it really isn't a big deal what the site is called.

    My concern is more about attracting new people to the site. Type "imore" into Google and you get a wide array of garbage sites and foreign language stuff. Having the "i" more clearly in the front of the name helps, but it just doesn't sound appealing.

    Then again, CrackBerry LOVED the name "PlayBook" for their tablet, and look how that turned out...
