You know what darkjedii, apple is great, IOS also. But they have to step up a notch. They are being left behind and believe me. You're just being blinded by your apple love. Things may not always be in apples way. But if they release a 5" iPhone. im in :)

I've tried a couple, and believe me you'll like GM version. You know these trolls can't get to me, I just enjoy giving them some of their own medicine. It's funny to poke em, and watch em get all riled up cuz someone fired back. +1 G2G

IOS7 has been talked about for months but you have no idea what it has. So you decide to make a comment to stay on the old without going to whats newer. You have no idea what the newer has. So, without you knowing you say stay on the old. Find out the new features before you bash it.

iOS 7 seems a nice update with multitasking,etc etc... But that new revamped UI kinda big let down, at least for me... Its too cartoonish and childish . I don't feels like its modern, may be refreshing but not modern.

Some of the new camera options/filters and something else I believe. Might "steal" my sons mini and bring it to work tomorrow so I can load iOS 7 play around with it. Am I correct in there is no way to downgrade the OS once I upgrade it?

Yes. At 8:00 AM on a friday. It will be tough. Are you planning on going to the apple store to get it? You would have to get there very early to get in line and see if you get lucky enough to get one.

Nothing really special, but as tech lover I still want to try that on my iPhone 5, just for curiosity. :)

Thank you! +1 for you too.
I don't have anything against technologies, I just don't like Apple as a company and certain type of Apple product users. :)
