I didn't see any new features in iOS7 that actually looked new, apart from already being used everywhere else somehow.

I saw a comparison chart listing all of the new features compared to the alternatives already existing in other smartphones.

Oh sweet despair, you return once more.

It was bad enough being a non-iOS user mastering iOS 6 for tech support at work. Now I have to do it all over again.

I also second "iOS < Android".

My sympathies, I actually felt the same way when I worked at an isp tech support and vista came out, let's hope the new ios won't be an epic fail like vista though..

I actually still use Vista, and have no problems with it. I've been using it for six years. In fact, I still have no idea why others consider it epic fail.

The annoyance with iOS is they'll change the menu map in small yet annoying ways, so all the directions I memorised will be useless. It's especially painful because iOS 6 was released under a year ago, so it's really a case of "Learn it, but within a matter of months it's going to be useless to you".

What happened with Windows Vista was that it introduced such a drastically changed architecture requirements for drivers that it broke several computers that did not have drivers or had very poorly tested drivers which led to a huge backlash of consumers who had computers suddenly limited because the OS couldn't utilize the hardware properly and couldn't understand why. As more hardware and software came up to standards, the OS became "more stable".

There was also a major jump in system requirements. Just to give you an idea of the requirement delta, 64MB of RAM and 233 MHz CPU were the minimal requirements of Windows XP. Windows Vista was 512 MB and 800 MHz requirements. That's an 800% and 300.43% increase in hardware performance needed for the minimal requirements. Of course the recommended for both were even higher. Most new machines were not ready for Vista and hardware manufacturers had vastly underestimated those requirements early on.

Yup, mainly because of the high system requirements that caused this os to be sluggish in most of the cases, I belive vista is the worst os since windows millenium which was also an epic fail btw..

Why? I never seen a depth 3d interface display anywhere.. But yeah most of the innovations are relatively to the older ios's not to other os's or phones.

I read an article this morning about Apple potentially making a phablet, as well as their rumored "cheap plastic phone." I think they're just scared that the competition is actually making products that they aren't competing with.

Have you heard about iRadio? It's a little too late for that to come out.

Wait for it.... Nope, nothing. They just don't excite me anymore.

Greedy is the name of the game since there isnt any real competition with the flagship products, iphone5 sales crush the galaxy s4 and that was the case with the older products..
