Apple takes the space out of the new iPhone?
It might not seem like a big deal, but one space can create a headache for a technology writer these days. When the Cupertino company originally launched the new iPhone, it was written as the iPhone 3G S. Note the space after the "G" and the "S" (which stands for speed, we are told). Now, this week, the company is referring to its new model as the iPhone 3GS with no spaces and the design that Apple uses for the handset does not make it clearer. On the web site, for example, the iPhone 3G logo is followed with the letter "S" enclosed in a square box with rounded edges. Is there a space there? Does it really matter? Considering the amount of ink that has been used to write about the device, it is important to get the name of the phone correct, even if the entire world knows exactly which model you are writing about. As Howie Mandel would ask, space or no space?

Here... "...Is there a space there? Does it really matter?..." I think the Author of this article answered their own question... therefore, there is no reason for this Article... Idiots! Good job Phonearena...

They should have written it like that in the first place. Its faster to write and easier to search on google.

Exactly. I think the best way to show you think an article is stupid is to not click on the link. And if you do click on it, you shouldn't return because all this gives this article many views. So if people want to eliminate all the articles they think are stupid, the key is to give it the lowest amount of views as possible. People can't say the article is so stupid and then it has one of the highest views. It doesn't match.
