  • Time Magazine: iPhone 5 is 2012 'Gadget of The Year'


    Time Magazine has bestowed a lofty honor upon Apple's iPhone 5. Time has selected Apple's latest model as the 2012 "Gadget of the Year."

    The report from Time author Harry McCracken describes the iPhone 5 as "one of the most artfully polished gadgets anyone’s ever built, with a taller screen than previous iPhones built into a thinner, lighter case."

    And while Android devices still lead the iPhone in terms of units sold around the world for 2012, Time gives Apple the nod for being the smartphone leader in terms of general device and OS quality.

    There are lots of nifty smartphones out there, including the iPhone’s impressive archrival, Samsung’s Galaxy S III. But when it comes to melding hardware, software and services so tightly that the seams fade away, Apple still has no peer.
    Here's the complete list of the top ten gadgets of 2012 as compiled by Time Magazine:

    1. Apple iPhone 5
    2. Nintendo Wii U
    3. Sony Cyber-shot RX100
    4. Raspberry Pi Model B
    5. Lytro
    6. Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display
    7. Microsoft Surface with Windows RT
    8. Samsung Galaxy Note II
    9. Nest
    10. Simple.TV

      They require less effort out of the box than iphone. About the note....I guess you would have to ask the millions of people who bought one what is the point of a 5" screen.

At least 100 phones world wide and they still can't top a SIMPLE *** DESIGN, the iPhone. Pound for pound iOS will always win. What's the point of buying a product and having to root/mod it out of the box just so it can run with optimal performance? Phone's aren't project cars man. They shouldn't require any extra time/effort to work at 100% all the time. Open the box, turn it on, and it should be good to go. It's 2013 dude wake up.
      Yet you're on modmyi which is dedicated to jailbreaking and unofficial tweaks? Android on stock pretty much does everything a jailbroken iphone does and in some cases can do stuff that can't be even done on a jailbroken iphone.

      Tasker is a fantastic example of this.

      ModMyi isn't only for jailbreaking/tweaks. It's about pretty much everything Apple related if you haven't noticed. Anyways, I've made my point. Have a happy new years fellas.

      The site is called MODmyi.com Not dontmodmyiandrunstockios.com. There are much better sites for Apple news out there if that's what you're after.
