    I am all about new Tech and advancements in our old communication systems, but in the last Year I have come to see that either I am to stupid to understand or People are just fucking crazy.

    I am confused as to why People, make a big fuzz about a cellphone that supports HD, but hasnt nearly the pixels or even size to really enjoy it. Just as some that buy a huge HD TV and still watch their DVD Videos on it. Not to forgett those that think they see a perfect HD picture while just watching a DVD on a normal TV that got HDready written on it.

    Just like the 3D crap... the stereoscopic method is fine in ways that it maintains the colors of the original pictures, but there are many people that simply cant see 3D through this or others that could potentially get a apeleptic ceisure from watching, but no... lets Broadcast it to all of America and see what happens.

    Iphone 4, dont get me started. I like the features, I like the design, I like the Brainwashing....wait a secound.....hell no! It used to be that People have their Cellphones till they simply dont work anymore or dont do it anymore. Thanks to Apple, People now get all crazy about the upgrade of a product that they dont really need updated unless Apple did a poor job in the first place to make you think you need more. If thats not true, why do people need HD on a phone that cant even display it properly?

    I dare to make the Prognosis that the next Iphone that will come out in about 2-3 Years will be called IPhone HD and their promise will probably be that you can now Videophone with your friends and family like you would be in the same room with crystal clear picture. Though no wireless communication standard at the moment would be capable of this.

    sometimes people purchase videos on standard format for their iPhones but what happens when u sync your phone to your computer and you try to watch this video on your HD TV? It simply sucks unless you pay again to download the HD version. Its better just to pay once for the HD content and be able to play in both devices your phone and your TV. Also there are cellphones with built in cameras taking videos at 720p(HD), this is a good thing basically because you will end up putting up this video on youtube or your playing it on your HDTV and in both cases you will need higher resolutions. Nobody is forcing you to upgrade, its just an option, it all depends on what your planning to use your cellphone for. Look at the new specs or the iPhone 4 for instance, if you dont want to carry a second camera with you then the new 5mp camera with the LED Flash might convince you to upgrade. If you use your phone to read a lot of text then the new retina screen might convince you to upgrade. It depends man, you know what you want better than anybody else. Dont blame companies for innovating or delaying their upgrades, its just an option.

    Saving my money and not blowing it on mindless time wasting consumer crap is an option too. That's getting to sound better every day. Anything made by Apple is presently not on my list except maybe AAPL stock. I can profit from the frenzy, I just don't want to participate. icon_smile.gif

    But...instead of spending your money on a product of Apple's, you spend it as a direct investment to the company, which feeds the frenzy. So you really are participating, aren't you?

    HD: Just crank up the colour and blur the background.
    3D: Just crank up the colour and blur the background some more.
    HD3D...

    Yes, you are correct. I guess I was referring to the consuming side of frenzy when I made that statement.

    The integretad HDcam in some phones is a cool idea, since I agree with you that most People will upload those videos or wanting to watch them on their TV.

    I used to use my Phone to write or read text, both happened to be really annoying. I am pretty sure that Apple cant make that better, and since my eyes are already screwed I couldnt care less about the retina friendly display(wtf?).

    I dont blame companies for their innovations or delaying their Upgrades. I blame companies for making people want something they dont need.
    Example:
    Nintendo Gamecube - Wii: That was a innovation
    Playstation2 - PS3: Also way more difference to the Product before
    Iphone 3GS- Iphone4: About the same product with a Softwareupdate and a additional camera.

    I know that many guys on here said that its a must have for them and that it fulfills their needs perfectly and the 3GS didnt?

    Seriously the PS3 is basically a faster(better graphics) PS2 with blu-ray support.

    Now talking about the iPhone4, I would agree with you if this were last year when Apple announced iPhone 3GS which was basically a faster iPhone 3G nothing more.

    However this year I have to disagree.

    1 - Best display ever built for a smartphone.
    2 - Thinnest smartphone ever made
    3 - Front facing camera for video calling.
    4 - 5MP camera(720p 30fps video recording) with LED flash
    5 - Better better life(40% longer) and if Im not mistaken its the best one when you compare it to the best Android smartphones out there.
    6 - 3-axis Gyro (pitch roll and yaw), 3-axis Accelerometer (6 axis motion sensing combined) giving you better perception of movement and position when developing new apps that rely on this kind of features.
    7 - Second mic added for noise reduction
    8 - Twice as fast(Apple 4A processor)
    9 - Improved hardware design with oleophobic coating on front and back on the phone, the primary structure is made of stainless steel that also functions as anthena.


    I really dont know what else you wanned the new iPhone to be capable of in terms of hardware quality and innovation, notice I didnt mention pretty much anything about software, thats all hardware right there.

    Ummm...as a pilot flying a plane that does NOT have those instruments, that feature alone just sold me on it!
