Some thoughts on the iPhone 5C from a non-Apple fanboy:

  • The OS and interface are smooth as fuck
  • Camera is crystal clear
  • Email setup is balls easy. (I use it for work but personal accounts can be added without difficulty.)
  • Screen is still smaller than the Galaxy’s but it’s fine for email and photos.
  • Have more exploring to do but so far, can’t complain and yes, I see the appeal.

I don’t mind so much that Apple stuck a couple of Klingon-spouting Trekkies in their commercial for the iPhone 5.

The Myth of Steve Jobs’ Constant Breakthroughs | TIME.com »

webbys:

After the hype of last week’s iPhone release, there has been a lot of chatter about whether, despite crazy demand and sales, post-Jobs Apple is still the company that “every couple of years rocked the consumer electronics world with a product so innovative that it changed industries forever.” 

Despite a commonly held opinion, Steve Jobs didn’t actually change the world every two years like clockwork, he was simply incrementalism’s grand master.

Agreed.  Also, “shepherder of sheep.”
