Review: Apple iPhone 5 for AT&T
wow how much did apple pay you?
They do not let advertisers or popular opinion sway their reviews or articles.Unlike TechnoBuffalo, Noah the Phone Dog, CNET, and ESPECIALLY MobileBurn.
I like Rich and Eric's work and not the mention the HUGE very usable database the is very useful of archived equipment and articles.
This site exist so that consumers can make an EDUCATED choice 1st and foremost, secondly so people working in the industry can have one stop shopping for up to date industry info before their employer decides to spoon feed it to them. and thirdly (unfortunately) so fan boys can vomit what they think they know all over this blog and feel self important until they are A) shut down b...
I haven't had a chance to check it yet, but I've heard that Apple Maps is so bad that it places the German city of Berlin in Antarctica... 😲
There is nothing wrong with Apple Maps. It is very accurate. The problem is that the cities and roads are in the wrong places.
There are plenty of anecdotes about bad data. I don't doubt them.
But in a review, it's our job to actually test it, not just report what people are saying elsewhere. It's not our place to jump on any bandwagon. We tested it, and it worked the way we described. You should absolutely listen to what everyone - not just us - says if you want to make an informed decision.
You have to appreciate that Apple is trying to map everything on the whole planet. That's one of the more ambitious projects any company can undertake. If they get 0.01% of the data wrong, that's impressive accuracy, but still a whole lot of bad data. I don't know what the per...

Here's the problem Rich. Apple and its followers have created the illusion of perfection. Apple has gone so far out of the way to remain proprietary, that it is willing to sacrifice its user's wants or needs. While I understand Apple's reasoning to control every aspect, their tight integration worked at low marketshare. However, integral key aspects will suffer more under larger scale usage.
Seriously. What harm would it do for Apple to use Google Maps as the default until they polish their own version? Allowing YouTube? I believe that Apple's vengeance is ...
None of my friends or family who got the iOS 6 update, or the new iPhone 5, have reported anything but glowing praises thus far, and the maps situation has not been reflected in any negative comments in our end of the boonies out here in southern PA... to my greatest surprise by far, my brother reported that iOS 6 has improved the performance of his iPhone 3GS over iOS 5. Come to think of it, I haven't actually heard, or seen, Apple drop the ball once yet on this new stuff... none of the neighbors have any complaints either.
That's probably true but....honestly.....Apple people are not exactly known for being willing to acknowledge errors or problems with Apple products or services...
If Microsoft made a cure for cancer, Apple peop...
I think you maybe coming off a little emotional over this review. I was not surprised at all by his opinion. When it comes to hardware, Apple is above most in design. It's always been this way. All the way back from the beginning through Mac Vs PC, and now today's Apple products, Apple spends a great deal of time and money to detail. I know, I was part of the Apple fan crowd years ago. In regards to the iPhone5, There are noticeable improvements in this iPhone over the old. This phone was highly anticipated and many blog sites have expressed their excitement for it.
My feelings are somewhat different than Eric's. Screen size has gotten very selective for consumers. Small? medium? large? It is an important choice for purchases....
