Welcome to the all-new iMore Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Says who?You will be able to add Widgets.
Playing the victim again?Ahhh, yet another iPhone bashing thread. Why don't you all put your money where your mouth is and buy some stock in Palm? Short apple stock while you're at it, let me know how it turns out.
sry for all the typos. On me treo.
Ahhh, yet another iPhone bashing thread.
Widgets or apps. Apple has stated they will be available. Either by Apple or by others, as said by Steve in a NY Times article.
They will be restricted though. You won't be able to throw any crap some guy made on your phone.
Point is, it has been stated they will be there. As long as Apple is offering things that most people want, docs, some games whatever, there shouldnt be an issue.
Plus this isn't even developed yet. Right now no one is making apps, no one said there won't be any 3rd party apps or 1st party ones for that matter.
I second Michael Mace's blog.
Lots of good stuff there.
Playing the victim again?
1) no one force you to read these posts
2) no one forces you to respond to these posts
3) you don't have to agree with everyone or anyone
Also, just b/c people criticize the iPhone for potential short comings or decide it won't fit their needs (don't like cingular, need 3g, don't listen to music, etc) doesn't mean they're a Palm devotee who thinks they walk on water.
But it has to be positioned that way, right? For your victim-hood to work? Just like if you don't like Apple computers you must be an unabashed MS apologist? The world isn't that simple. Weird on how Treocentral you find people who like their Treos...strange. :shake:
Who is in this "world" you speak of? I don't know of anyone who doesn't believe that the iPhone will be a success.The world does not believe the iPhone will be a success. They will be wrong.
He prattles because many people judge phones based on how easy it is to dial phone numbers.Then he prattles on about the phone not having a keypad to dial??? and bases the next couple of paragraphs on this issue.
Actually, based on comparable price and features. It makes sense to anyone who understands marketing.But in these last paragraphs he also equates the iPhone to the high end iPod based on price alone. This does not make sense.
I'm referencing Malatesta's backlash statement - businesses discounting, analysts discrediting...Who is in this "world" you speak of? I don't know of anyone who doesn't believe that the iPhone will be a success.
...and your point.He prattles because many people judge phones based on how easy it is to dial phone numbers.
But it doesn't HAVE comparable features. 80GB is not the same as 4GB. And now that the iPhone is introduced you better believe that the next iPod will have a bigger screen (probably even bigger than the iPhone in both size and size ratio).Actually, based on comparable price and features. It makes sense to anyone who understands marketing.
