Not seeing any facts so I will dismiss your comment as "ignorance"

I stated I have been doing this for years is the complete truth.

I have used Siri, I have asked "it" several questions with the response "I'm not sure what you mean" how is that better?

I hate to take galo's side here but it can do that. also i have used both google voice and siri and siri is way way better. Not that google voice is bad but siri is game changing. Don't get me wrong the 4S was a huge disapointment but attack it in others areas not siri. Anyway I have noticied you been reply to c.hack alot today iamcc ignore him he isn't worth it.:)

Galo you obviously don't have the 4S because it can do exactly what he desrcibed and you start talking about something not related.

I think you may have mis-spoke. Google Voice is completely different from Siri. In fact they have nothing in common. GV gives you a phone number and handles texts and phone calls. It also emails you transcribed voice messages. I use it with out a phone these days for my mom to call me locally even though I now live far away. I am sure you knew all this though.

No way--Apple watches the field and see how other manufacturers survive before they implement!!! Impossible for them to jump to quad core on the next phone...I predict a dual core A5 chip--as in the 4S, coupled with LTE (NEW) on a 4 in display (NEW)....No quad core...no way they will make that jump especially when the apps transition flawlessly over ios5

well apple have seen how the competioin has survived and, how they've reacted. take the tegra 3 for exaple, it doesnt have a neccasseraly good GPU compared with that of the A5, but the CPU and its architechture are relitivly good, if apple didnt make the jump to quad core they probably wouldnt survive the first 3Q of 2012

Ok Apple, now use those beefy processors to create something that's more than just grid after grid after grid of icons.

What the droid fanboys don't know is that the Android OS is crippled because of its use of Dalvik. Its incapable of using more than one core. Apple will be the first to release a quad core phone and tablet that actually uses all 4 cores

yes but android cannot use them and that 5th core is only for powersaving mode, it cannot be used at the same time as the other 4 cores are active.

My goodness fandroids, lol. Get over with your insecurities already, lol.

Everyone knows that Apple releases one iphone every year. Just because quad core chips are available now, it does not mean that Apple will have to release a new iphone tomorrow like android does, lol. Apple likes to stick to their annual summer release. Which is great because iphone users won't feel that their iphones become outdated right away.

Yeah because we all know that iPhone users need to have the "latest" to feel good about themselves.

Let's talk about insecurities...

Is October in the Summer now? Crazy calander always changing. I mean there is 29 days in February this year. Where is siri to remind me of that and also tell me I need to eat today?

@iam. What? What's insecure about updating to a new iphone every year or two? You fandroids update every 4 months, lol. So who needs to have the latest thing now? Lol

@Zayzay. Siri may be smarter than you are, but Siri will not be able to remind you unless you tell it to remind you to eat at a certain time :)

My point is this...

The fact that you consider it a benefit that Apple only releases a phone once a year so that you always have the latest clearly shows your need to always have the latest.

Why?

That is geat for the environment and this is obvious. Updating phones frequently means more android devices heading to the landfill than need be. As you know, customers want new phones so those obsolete android phones with short life-cycles and poor customer support are just headed for the landfill.

there's nothing wrong with updating to a new phone. The only problem is if you dont have the money for it!!

@iam. What a twisted way you have of looking at things.

Is there anything wrong with wanting to have the latest version of a device? Of course not. But how would you feel if the latest device that you bought 3 months ago is shortlived because another latest device has been released? Worse, the latest version OS would not even load on your 3 month old device, hahahahaha. How would you feel? Great?

Be realistic. No one will be happy to spend $700 dollars on a device that will be old news after a couple of months. Excpet of course a fandroid like you. Sheep :)

@baam. Wow, another fandroid sheep :)

You would spend $700 every 4 months as long as you can afford it?

There are two types of rich people. Those rich ones who are practical (me). And those rich folks that are plain stupid (you) :)
