Apple in general - Android & Iphone

I have been thinking, and they just arnt releasing anything NEW. It's all the same just re-sized or specs gone up, but no real new ideas. What is your opinions?

I'm thinking that they're just focusing on broadening their market. People like the iOS interface. No, in fact, they love it.

It's something they're going to keep for as long as we're still using physical touch interfaces.

They figure, 'if it's not broke then don't fix it". And really, what is there to fix or improve on?

Typical consumers hate learning how to use new things, and the iOS interface is intuitive enough for most users to view it as something that 'just works'.

If they do change anything, it will be in polish and perhaps voice commands via Siri.

The only think I think they need to tap into, and probably are already working on, is 'hybrid laptop/tablets'.

It's easy for anyone to see the potential of such devices. Some company just needs to come along and make the transformation function stupid easy AND as powerful (Microsoft you filthy devil, you're just like Apple now! DOUBLE the evil!!!(Look @ the price of the Surface)) as most laptops on the market for about the same price.

I never found the folders on an ios. I don't know if it's weird to say that but each time I ask my brother to show me his files on his ipad he opened the application containing movies, for example, to show me which movies he has.
It would be great to be able to access the files normally, I mean to have a file manager.

You can if you install homebrew software which Apple doesn't allow because 'Murrica.

Jailbreak > iFile & OpenSSH, couldn't live without it.

All depends on what you need. I know plenty of people who run non-jailbroken iPhones and are fine with it.

Also, I find jailbreaking isn't such a big deal. You could also ask what's the point of computers if you need to install *nix on it to get full functionality.

Jailbreaking isn't like installing an OS on your machine.
How can you compare those 2 things?

I wasn't saying jailbreaking is like installing an OS, I said _complaining_ about jailbreaking is like complaining about installing a different OS.

If you're willing to replace Windows with *nix on you computer, I don't see why jailbreaking should be such a big deal. Just my opinion.

I've had an iPhone 4s for about 10 months now without Jailbreaking and it's fine. My only problem is the battery life has significantly decreased from 3 days to a matter of hours. My Motorola Milestone was the same though, ended up only lasting 5 hours.

Anyway yeah, I now have iPhone, iPad and Macbook Air from Apple products and the integration is fantastic.

And to think I used to dislike Apple old me would be disappointed.
