    New MacBook Pro 15

    I suppose I'm in the minority, but as I type this on my 2009 MacBook Pro, I am anxiously awaiting my almost max'd out MBP. The only upgrade I didn't choose was 2TB SSD. I did bump it up from 512GB to 1TB though. My wallet is crying, but it's been 7.5 years since I bought a laptop. I think I'll...

    Chrome 39 Released

    So Google finally released a 64-bit version of Chrome for Mac. I love Chrome but it destroys battery life on OS X, so I try to use Safari as much as possible. I'm hoping the 64-bit version of Chrome will help with that on OS X. Anyone else install it and have any results from their usage?

    What iPhone 5 cases are you guys using?

    I just use a bumper from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Photive-Hybrid-iPhone-Bumper-Case/dp/B0092TQHP2/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1364226779&sr=8-10&keywords=iphone+5+case Curious, what made you want to jump from the Lumia to the iPhone (aside from obvious reasons)?

    Also, if you have any iOS devices, AirPlay is the best.

    Expecting nothing but garbage, but the 5 year old currently in love with all things Star Wars will go bananas for it.

    Apple: 37.04 million iPhones sold in Q1

    It's amazing how often the analysts are wrong, yet the analysis is posted and published everywhere and used as a basis by so many people.

    iPhone 4 Video Quality

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Pyll7gDQ4 The audio is recorded with the just the phone mic. I didn't overlay it with better quality purposely. I wanted to test out the video quality while driving at night. I was highly impressed.

    iPhone 4 FaceChat - Impressions?

    I still think it's cool and the simple trick of switching between back and front-facing cameras is wonderful. Initiating a FaceTime call, or switching to it during a voice-call is seemless and excellent. Illuminate, does the $50 phone that allows you to do it over the cell network work the...

    iPhone 4 Video Quality

    1. Try landscape next time. 2. Did you export it to your PC first, or upload directly to YouTube?

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    Yeah, I think that will still occur due to the lighting in most offices. The outside shot is what confirms it for me, anyway. The low-light shots are still very yellow due to the poor auto white balance, but that's okay. I hope they'll fix it in a software update.

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    I just took a photo in daylight, and while it's not perfect, I think it's much better than what I had before. Overall, more consistency.

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    Went to the Apple store. They checked out my phone and agreed that there was in fact camera color issues. They replaced my phone and gave me a brand new one right then and there. I think the camera is better overall, but I won't know for sure until I take a photo in the daylight tomorrow. I'll...

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    Yes, I reserved a Genius appointment for tonight at 6:50. I almost feel silly for bitching about this issue since it's not THAT bad or important, but I figure other people are not experiencing this, so I shouldn't settle.

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    Yeah, I'm going to the Apple store tonight to see what they say or if an exchange is possible. I just have a feeling my replacement (if they have one and I can get one) will somehow be worse than this one. Does anyone know if they just swap MicroSIM cards out during an exchange?

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    I know it's not a big deal with Apple refurbs, but it's just unfortunate that the phone is brand new, and due to their glitchy QA, I have to get a refurb'd model. Oh well, either way, if I get one that lasts as long as this one does and the camera is better, then so be it. I just went 48...

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    Pardon my ignorance, but I've never had to visit an Apple Genius before or request support. If I ask for an exchange, do they replace it with a new phone or a refurbished model? Also, do I bring the box, headphones, cable, etc. with it?

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    I ordered it through AT&T. I just made an appointment with a "Genius" for tomorrow evening at a local store. I hope they do replace it. I use the camera a lot, and can't just let the purple-aspect slide. It's blatant.

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    What do I do? Just call Apple, or take it into a store? This can't be normal or expected. I've seen other folks' photos and they're not like this.

    iPhone 4 - signal propagation issues because of "the band"?

    Perhaps. But that doesn't explain why using a Bumper case may alleviate the issue...

    iPhone 4 - signal propagation issues because of "the band"?

    Decided to give it a shot just for kicks. It doesn't help. Upon taking the MicroSIM out, it looked very stable/normal to me.

    iPhone 4 - signal propagation issues because of "the band"?

    i guess if people are having such issues, it can't hurt, and if that's all it is, then El Jobso is right that there is no issue. I guess I can try it just for kicks.

    So, I took a photo outside. Same deal. Not as glaring obviously, but you'll see it. (The left side of the pavement looks more purple.)

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    I keep forgetting to test it outside. I'll do that later today, as long as I get out of the office in time for a shot in daylight. Were you able to? I took a few more shots. One of coins on paper and it's glaringly obvious there, but then another shot of some books and it's barely noticeable...

    iPhone 4 Camera Discoloration

    No case. No protective film either. It's not as noticeable when there are a lot of colors involved, but if it's just a blank image, or one with consistent color throughout (such as a blue sky), the tint will be off. I've tried cleaning the lens as well.

    I agree- the battery life has definitely improved over the 3G/3GS. Definitely a welcomed advance.

    Seriously, anyone that doubts this new screen is a moron. I don't care what actual resolution is or if it's real retina display or not. Just use it for 30 seconds and you'll know that it's amazing. All the other phones will catch up to this, no doubt, and that's a great thing. It's incredible...

    iPhone 4 - signal propagation issues because of "the band"?

    Ok, so here's something to consider with my scientific (lol) testing. At home, I normally do not get even decent recption. My girlfriend has an LG Xenon, and I had been using the iPhone 3G for the past 2 years. We're lucky to get 2 bars if the phones are left on a table, and 90% of the time...
