    my first smart phone

    That and the fact it seamlessly backs up everything on your phone for you. Not only good in case you lose your phone, but also if you ever need to get it replaced under warranty. It's nice to get a new phone and have it returned to the exact state your previous one was (including little things...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Apple had their earnings call today and Tim Cook stated demand for the iPhone 6 is so high they're not sure when they will catch up. I guess that explains why I'm still waiting and probably won't get mine for another couple weeks. :(

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Do you use a Windows PC? I've been building gaming rigs for years, and every time I build a new PC it's still the same as all the others. Still runs Windows, which outside of Windows 8 hasn't changed much at all the last 10 years. Same desktop, start menu, task bar, same commands on your menu...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    If you had Find My iPhone turned on, then it's already bricked. Nobody else will be able to use the device. They need your Apple ID and password to turn off Find My iPhone or to erase it. Connecting to iTunes is also useless as you need to enter your Apple ID/password before iTunes will do a...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    I understood your reply to mean that lots of people buy iPhones because they work well with Macs (Apple eco-system and how it integrates). But since most people who own iPhones don't own Macs, then there must be some other valid reasons why people buy them that has nothing to do with what type...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Most iPhone owners are Windows PC owners just like most computer users own Windows PC's. The iPhone drastically outsells the Mac, so where do you think all those extra phones are going? ;)

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Right tool for the right job. Why take pictures with a smartphone when a DSLR is so much better? Because the camera you have with you is better than the one you forgot at home. You don't always need a DSLR. For music/audio you can strap an iPhone to your guitar or an iPad to your mic stand when...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    While people can argue back and forth whether some feature is better on iOS or Android, you can't argue about audio/music production. iOS is light years ahead of Android due to the fact Google hasn't bothered to add the features/API's required for audio production. Audio Evolution Mobile is...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Superior is a subjective term. And you can't talk about the hardware without including the OS that runs on it. My kids use iOS devices as they are both big into music/recording. Android simply can't perform this function, so for my kids it's useless. At work we use iOS exclusively simply...

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    Sort of like people who buy a Honda Civic then spend a fortune in mods so they can make it as fast as a Porsche. Then they realize they're still driving a Civic and they would have been better off buying a car that already performs how they want.

    Which iPhone 6 will you get?

    I use an iPhone as my primary device. I always get the newest iPhone for my wife and I and then give our kids our old iPhones. Was going to get the iPhone 6, but found out that I get a free one from work (which is a nice surprise, but not really surprising since iOS dominates in...

    So I Had My First Accident

    Well, he DID get a new car, worth $50K more than the one he had. From what I remember the wording in the contract was vague enough that they had to replace it. Now they've updated the wording to exclude high value cars. I also remember the amount he paid for this replacement insurance was...

    So I Had My First Accident

    That's a different issue, though. You're talking about whether the insurance company gives you a fair payout and I'm talking about the fact it's cheaper to fix cars than people (and you can't replace people). Speaking of "GAP" insurance (we call it Replacement Cost or Limited Depreciation), we...

    So I Had My First Accident

    Exactly this. I used to work with Transport Canada and ICBC (our local government insurance) doing accident investigations. People these days often get mad at how easily newer cars get damaged/crumpled and make the typical "they don't make them like they used to" comment. To that I say "good...
