    Oh that Ralph Nader kaboom car! Did you have a tendency to look into the rear view mirror a lot?

    I'm old enough to remember seeing the premiere of 2001: A Space Odyssey in the summer of 69......"Sorry, Dave, I can't do that". I was 18. I thought I'd never see the day to speak to a computer let alone a cell phone! There were no desktop PCs nor cell phones.
    Man you're old

    I'm just old enough to remember when gas was below a buck. By the time I got my license when I was 16, gas prices had already gone up above 2 bucks. Nowadays, it's doubled that.

    Anyway, that makes me just old enough to remember when you still had to launch windows from dos.
    Yeah getting up there! About to retire. Sounds like I have about 20 years on you. I'll be 62 in June.
    Um... you actually have 30-some years on me... and 40 years on my boyfriend. Base on this rate, I want to see robots cleaning my toilets before I'm 60.

    I can remember buying gas for my first car for $0.22 and what is Windows.
    I think you're about my age. I worked a gas station in the summer of 67. I was a sophomore. We had is special > 10 gallons for two bucks. That give some idea of inflation. Damn OPEC! You probably remember the gas lines in 72. They were fun weren't they?!

    Lol! Windows are what we looked out of.
    I will be 69 in May. Have been semi retired for about 18 years. PCs were not even a dream in 67.

    Me bad! I should have phrased it quite differently. I forgot you are female. I know all too well not to offend a woman in regards to age!

    You revealed quite a lot there, goodintentions. Not only your age, but you're a "cradle robber" as we say here. Good for you, though! My girlfriend is 18 years my younger. She did have a problem with it at first, but has accepted "the odds".

    Until the robots get here, I suggest you have your boyfriend clean the toilets.

    18 years? That's even worse than us. We're 9 years apart.

    Got a laugh out of that, eh?

    Guilty. Cradle robber if I was 18. We just met in November. We hit it off the bat. Lucky guy I am!

    I'm sure you know. Love knows no boundaries. Has no prejudice.

    Especially when we're the "older" one, eh?

    Actually, they legally could as Microsoft has patented the Windows Phone UI.

    Now they make ME take all the pictures. ha! And you should see the envy when I just lay it on the charger to recharge....
    Envy? You might as well lug around a spare phone given the size of the charger. Wireless charging has been around for a while, it's not really picking up steam. You still have the cord, the wall charger and then you add the additional hardware of the charging platform. This doesn't trump the charger to USB cable that is the current standard.

    It's a cute little gimmick but plugging in a cable really isn't a problem that needed a solution. Are your iPhone friends really envious of a wireless charger?
    apple fanboys...

    It's fun to see them react to simple things that android and Windows Phone have that the iphone doesn't...

I would think for Io7 they could open it up so that themes can be applied and reset the screen so that widgets can be added.
    All of those things require filesystem access, they will never agree to it unless they put the themes in themselves and put in a control that allows you to select from a pre installed theme.

    Apples motivation for releasing new IOS's is not what it looks like, but does it BLOCK Jailbreaking. The mistake Apple made was removing Personal Choice from the decision of which iOS you can use, our only choice is to NOT update to their latest iOS.

    You'll notice there were 6 rapid iOS updates in a row when iOS 6.0 to 6.1.2 were jailbroken - the they gave bogus reasons for these hurried updates. The reason why they released 6.1.3 was BOGUS, it was released to break eVasi0n, not to fix the lock screen bug, because that bug was proved to not be fixed at all in 6.1.3.

    So, if they do decide to make iOS look as flat and lame as Windows 8 tiles, I'll stick with iOS 6.1.2 and lock it down so it cannot be updated.

    It's my personal choice to run Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8, and I'm glad Microsoft does not force ut to use Windows 8.
    The bogus reasons for the 6.xx updates for ios was actually due to a security issue that cropped not once, but TWICE. If you had a passcode on your iphone, the first time you could do a series of steps to bypass it. An update came by to fix that, and I think with a Microsoft Exchange issue as well. Then it was found after the update that you could once again, bypass the passcode by taking out the SIM card I believe and doing something else. Basically, it was easier the second time to do that than the first, then an update came and fixed that.

    Personally, I don't like apple partly because of iTunes. A friend of mine who is iffy now about their iphone 4s HATES iTunes 11, I mean, wow. I don't blame her as it is an AWFUL Zune ripoff, my GOD! You think Windows 8 is hard to use, use iTunes 11. But anyways, there currently isn't really a way to sync a newer iphone without iTunes, every ios update also makes it much more difficult to crack that.

    If apple were a government system, it would be soviet communism.
