Does this look like a android-ifid IOS to anyone else but me? Looks interesting at least, i do give them props for changing it up a bit though. Hopefully Apple can make their next phone actually special.

Yes it does, and you better get used to this new interface. Knowing Apple, it'll be another 6 years before it changes again.

But yeah, the initial pictures do remind me of Android.

Apple has been copying Android since at least 5.0.....this time around it just got more obvious....

looks nothing like Android, but pull out a WP8 and you will see that it is like iOS and WP8 had a baby and the baby looks AWESOME, I love all three major operating systems(Android, iOS, and WP8 ) but iOS and WP8 work a lot more fluidly then android and crash way less

There's definitely a lot of direction here that Android started to go towards, as well as a lot of WebOS's 'glassiness.' Apple did a good job avoiding the bleakness of the former and rough edges of the latter.

What, no whining about blatant copying and failure to innovate from you? Have your standards suddenly lessened, or are you just being hypocritical?

You know I wouldn't mind Apple's poaching features from other OS's if not for the fact that their marketing constantly exaggerates the degree of 'innovation' they introduce. They seem congenitally incapable of describing any improvement in design or performance, however minor, as 'revolutionary;,

They remind me of Barney from 'How I Met Your Mother', how he always describes everything, even completely trivial things, as 'legendary'....'hey I just made a snowman in the park, it was legendary'....except with Apple it would be 'we just made a snowman in the park, it's the most revolutionary snowman ever designed'....

You just became my hero.

I believe Apple makes a good product, but not the legendary, best, most amazing product they claim to make.
