Default Apple

Is it me, or is Apple becoming a painfully boring company with zero innovation?

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/08/te...hone.html?_r=0

No one is talking about the new iPhone release going on today. As expected, they're doing away with the headphone jack, in an effort to become water resistant... and, that's pretty much it? Adding a haptic feedback home button, big whoop.

Oh, can't forget - the Apple Watch is getting Pokemon go

What the hell. Sad.

This will only encourage people to hold onto their iPhones longer. I have no need for a phone without a headphone jack. Better instead to back the phone up and get a new battery from one of those mall kiosks in another 18 months.

until we've got flexible displays, there's not much room for more innovation in actual phone design.

getting rid of the jack is awesome, and water resistance is like 10 years overdue (and that blame doesn't just go to apple)

I'm not sure its that or we just are in a gap of improvement rather than breakthroughs. Kinda like video games. After the N64 and Dreamcast, gaming felt more evolutionary than revolutionary. We're gonna need the next big step.

Default Re: Apple

it'll be incremental until we get some wild battery innovation of flexible displays come around

i'm fine with incremental gains, phones already can do so much more than i'll ever need them to.

i still use an iphone 5 ffs and the only thing that is mildly frustrating is batt life.

give me something that can easily last the day with moderate usage, water resistant and a nice screen, what else does a man need?

Wait, Iphone release is today?? I didn't have the slightest clue. It seems that you can get away with using your phone and waiting every three years or so to upgrade. I know I will upgrade next year from my iphone 6; hopefully they make some cool upgrades on next years model.

I was hoping for a built-in assault laser or photon torpedo

Good points above on where we are in the innovation spectrum, but I guess I was expecting an overall new design at least? I dunno. I feel like Apple's been coasting lately. Either that, or our (my) expectations are too high.

I'm going to picket in front of the Civic Auditorium today, and make my voice heard. When they interview me, I'll tell them I'm a delegate from M3Forum.net, then at least they'll respect me, and listen to what I have to say.
