Here's how Tim Cook told Siri about Scott Forstall's leave (hint: it goes wrong)
It's been announced that iOS chief Scott Forstall will no longer be looking after Apple's mobile operating system, but it seems not everyone in the company is going to welcome his leave. Some of Apple's software creations, like Siri, for example, may actually be quite depressed to learn that Scott is leaving the company.

In fact, if this comic is to be believed, "depressed" might be a bit of a soft word. "Shocked" would be much more in place regarding Siri's reaction. Our favorite part? Tim Cook demonstrating an iron fist by commanding the others to disconnect the router, as Siri starts to search the interned for Scott Forstall.

Do you know what's so funny about this story? That it sounds so authentic...

I'm sorry dude...but you guys have complained about iOS being outdated for the past 3 years. Then Apple finally replaces the guy over iOS and you still complain.

I think most of the reason is because look at the difference between the 2007 versions of ios and android, and look at the 2012 versions and see who's made the biggest changes. Besides that there are 2 reasons I'm not optimistic with Ive at the helm. First he is a hardware guy, and they aren't the first choice when wanting to come out with ground breaking software. Just like you wouldn't want a podiatrist doing heart surgery. Second, the face of he iphone hasn't really changed since 2007. The back has, but the user is going to spend more time looking at the face of the phone more than the rest of it. Other than it being taller, the face of the iphone5 looks identical to the original iphone. He may make changes, but apple seems hellbent on not doing anything big because they're worried they may lose some of their current customers. The problems with that way of thinking is 1: they're not going to attract new customers, & 2: they're current customers will get bored with it over time. Look at what happened to RIM, same stuff year after year and they're now at the back of the pack, only 6 years after they had an iconic device that everyone had to have. Before the iphone came out you weren't cool if you didn't have a Blackberry, now you can't give them away. Its a short road to the bottom.

Haha, says the Sammy fan that's now accustomed to cheap build materials and a fragile lackluster design. Leave it to remixfa to start a flame war. It should be illegal for Samsung users to criticize the design of other phones, lol

Funny, my S3 has taken quite a few tumbles since I got it launch day, and still looks like it did that first day. You may be referring to previous models, but I would say the current crop seem to be fine. As far as cheap build materials, that can be highly subjective. The phones that are mil-spec for shock, submersion, etc like the G'Zone and so on are plastic. Plastic is a softer material, but is also has flexibility, which means it has more shock absorption. Glass and metals are more rigid ad have a stronger tendency to crack or transmit the shock to the internal components, respectively. While they do feel more "premium" in the hand, it may not help you when it's out of your hand traveling towards a hard surface. Looking at the issues the first iphone5s had with build quality, I wouldn't be quick to point to them as premium. Many people in the gun forums say the same thing when referring to polymer firearms like the Glock or M&P series. The fact is they can take a ton of abuse and keep on firing. It may feel like a toy, but it doesn't shoot like one. About the only all metal guns being produced today are 1911s, Desert Eagles, revolvers, and a few other miscellaneous autos.

Johny Ivy, or sir johny ivy is the reason apple in the mud right now. This guy sux, and using his bestowed 'sir' title to stay in Apple. This is the guy that do 1 beginner luck, and feel cocky. If I were Tim Cook, Johny is the one I kick before I'm kicking anyone elese
