Yay…a new iPhone!?

Well, we survived yet another ‘Apple Event’.  The results: iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.  The improvements? Over previous iPhones, lots…over existing Android and Windows Phones, few if any.  I shudder at all the gushing over the new releases by various tech blogs…singing the praises of the changes in the iPhones…even the larger iPhone 6 Plus.  What bothers me most about that is these are the same blogs that ripped on Samsung for making such a large phone three years ago…if that isn’t a blatant showing of Apple Favoritism, I don’t know what is.

I have heard that the new camera on the iPhone is the best yet.  However, it does stick out from the phone itself and people don’t like that aspect.  Then there’s the whole “BendGate” thing.  I wasn’t sure about this, and Apple came out and said it was a myth, that there are only 9 reported cases of it bending.  Yet a German Tech magazine did an independent ‘stress test’ of the iPhone 6 Plus and showed that it did indeed bend without excessive pressure.  What was Apple’s response to this ‘unbiased’ test?  That magazine is banned from all Apple Events, and they will no longer receive Apple products to evaluate.  Click here for a full article for that story…

Well, nothing to see here…move along…I continue to be happy with my Windows Phone, my Android phone, so other than my daughter, no new iPhones for me…

As a lifelong educator, I have worked extensively with both Macs and PC's. In addition, the last 26 years have been spent in the area of technology consulting, hardware repair, networking, database development and the like. Through these many different roads, I have come to have a high level of distain for the blind followers of all things Apple. Please do not assume that I am a blind follower of MS either. I have found that in dealing with most Apple users, the concept of logic is quickly pushed aside and in its place is a radical, cultish defense of all things Apple.
