As GW is mostly Mac I thought we should bring up the new Iphone 4Gs. I have the 3Gs and it is water damaged and only alerts me to certain texts so I am debating switching.
It seems crazy that you can ask a phone questions and it will be able to respond. You can ask “Do I need an umbrella” and the phone can answer you. Or tell it to schedule an appointment, and if you are busy at that time and it will be able to tell you that you are busy and reschedule, even say what you want it to text and the phone will type and send the text for you. This seems crazy and almost robotic to me, like the futuristic television shows I watched as a kid. Are we stepping into the time where technology can actually do things for us, without the hassle?
Another change is iMessage. This is like BBM. It shows you when the text is sent and when the other person is reading it or even when they are typing out a reply. I am not so sure if this is a good thing. This cuts out the ability to ignore a text doesn’t it? There is no isolation, the other person can always tell what you are doing, where is the privacy? What do you guys think? I like getting back to someone later or having time to think about what to say without coming across as rude.
iCoud is cool, it automatically syncs all your photos, videos, calendar, documents, apps and all that other stuff you just have to have on your iPhone onto your computer. Which is nice so you don’t have to plug it in all the time but your stuff is still on your computer, which we all know is a mac. But the only thing is you can only use 5 gigs for free, past that you have to pay. My room mate found that out last night she was mad.
So what do you guys think about the new phone? Worth it? No? Do you guys have the old ones? Does anyone have the new one?
