  • Some of the iPhone 5's (AAPL) finer details are getting criticized. Among the issues: 1) The iPhone 5 won't support simultaneous voice and data on Verizon and Sprint's 4G LTE networks, unlike many other LTE phones. 2) A $29 adapter meant to link the iPhone 5's new dock connector with older accessories won't work with some speakers. 3) Until they're rewritten, existing iPhone apps will display black borders on the iPhone 5, due to its larger display and new aspect ratio. [View news story]
    in response to problem 1)Who cares? How often do you use both at the same time anyways?
    2)Connect it with the headphone jack if it doesn't work, and if it doesn't work with the adapter in the first place, then you probably have some low grade speaker/dock system to begin with
    3)Existing Apps will be Re-written within weeks of the release. Why would any developer let the unused space go to waste? (Ad revenue)

    i thought there was a weird tax situation with facebook employees, and that they were taxed on the IPO price weather they sold or not, and that the company had put a certain amount of cash aside to cover it. Poor California, cant catch a break
