    Well I am heading out there on Thursday but i've been reading and a iPhone bought in the US wont support LTE in the UK and vice versa. And for that reason it doesn't seem worth me doing. I'll just suck it up and continue on contract with O2

    Edit: A quick search leads me to believe that you can't buy a sim free iPhone 5 in America? That's a bit annoying could've saved a nice amount of money if they did

    You should if you buy from the apple store. Though they may not start selling unlocked versions for the first month or 2 to cope with contract customer orders.

    Yeah i'm only in America for two weeks, also it won't give me 4G speeds in EU so it would be a bit of a waste buying it. Decided when i get back i'm just going to buy a 32GB sim free phone and go on a 1 month contract with '3' and get 200 minutes, 5000 texts and unlimited data for 12 a month. Seems much better than paying 200 for the phone then 41 a month for 24 months for unlimited calls and texts and 1GB of data

    I find the question of must have apps impossible to answer because it is so subjective based on your needs. However, I'll give you a run down what I use. And if you post your needs we can tune it to suit you.

    As for day to day stuff, I use Safari for web browsing. Mail for email. iPhoto for photo management and iMovie for movie editing. Calendar for calendar etc. I use Apple's built in apps for all they can offer.

    Here's some examples of apps most geeks like.

    Omnifocus for their Getting Stuff Done system. Launchbar for faster app launching and more. Keyboard Maestro for making KB shortcuts and macro's for stuff you do all the time. Fantastical for calender stuff.

    I've probably forgot some things but that should get you started.

    Yeah I'll mostly be using it for web browsing, word processing, and some other random things. I'll check out these apps when I get the MBP. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Sure thing. Familiar yourself with the bundled applications. The iLife suite is really powerful and those apps are worth knowing inside out. Textedit is more powerful as a text editor than most people think, it's really worth your time investing into learning it throughly.

    I have another question about my new MBP. Is Mountain Lion going to be installed when I get it or do I have to update it myself?

    Really? It hasn't crashed once on either my iPhone 4 or my iPad 2. Maybe your install got corrupted somehow, try restoring it as new perhaps.

    Mountain Lion will be pre-installed.

    I was a bit wary about the increased screen size as I find certain larger android phones a bit uncomfortable to use, I've had no problems with the iphone 5 however, very easy to use with one hand.

    Also I love iCloud! just logged in on my new phone and everything was there, used to spend hours transferring everything to a new phone

    Alright, gonna try that. Also another issue. There's a section on itunes when I ipod is plugged in called other space. It's nearly a gig and I can't figure out why that section is so big.

    Other is things like album arts, contacts, text database etc. Around one gig is probably right, depending on how much stuff you have on your device. Try syncing it to recalculate that space.

    Ordered an iPhone 5 this morning. Went 32GB White this time around.


    3-4 week delivery time. Which in Apple talk means they don't have any phones in stock, meaning mine hasn't even been made yet.

    Actually I can agree to that. I have been wanting a bigger screen on the iphone for ages and was jealous of the many android phones. Yesterday I spent a lot of time with a Galaxy S3 and while I'm a big guy with big hands it was impossible to operate the phone with one hand, as I was used to. I now get why Apple made so much fuzz about the "one hand usage". It could be just me though. Maybe after sometime you get used to need two hands to operate a phone?

    On an other note, my iphone 5 is on it's way to me, since yesterday morning. With a bit of luck I'll have it later today.

    I'd rather not have to use two hands to use a phone. A use a phone when I'm on the go, more often than not I only have one hand available or using both would be inconvenient. Especially when walking.

    That's for sure. To someone who is used to use a phone with just one hand, having to use both is def an inconvenience.

    I'm just guessing, maybe to someone who is used to use both hands, maybe not so much.

We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

    We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up.

    There are already more than 100 million iOS devices using the new Apple Maps, with more and more joining us every day. In just over a week, iOS users with the new Maps have already searched for nearly half a billion locations. The more our customers use our Maps the better it will get and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback we have received from you.

    While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.

    Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working non-stop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard.

    Embarrassing for Apple to have to apologize, but maps have not worked well. I expect them to improve rapidly though.

    Having a big problem with my Macbook Pro 13" from 2009, running Snow Leopard OSX....


    This

    I've been getting these a whole lot lately, but more so when I'm logged in and browsing Firefox or looking at a PDF file..sometimes, even randomly. Too many kernel panics, applications not working or quitting immediately. Even in safe mode, I can hardly...but now, as I type this post, I'm on my mac and nothing is happening, which is weird, because, what, did it suddenly develop a conscious and decided not to be such a $#@!ing asshole to me anymore?

    I don't have warranty, I bought it in 2009 and it's long expired by now..so I'm taking it in tomorrow to see what the $#@! is wrong with this thing. I tried to boot it with the install DVD and tried to verify disk, but it failed to check for the problems. It gave me an error that prompted me to "repair disk" and even that didn't finish properly...I'm using Safari to browse the Internet, and all this week, I would get a lock screen just like in the image I posted while browsing on Safari. Sometimes, I would turn it on again and my screen would look all pixelated, as if something is wrong with the monitor, when clearly that's not the issue.

    I'm thinking it's one of three things,

    My HD, simply because it couldn't finish its Verify and Repair scans with the Install disk.

    My RAM, my Macbook came with 2gb of it, DDR3, and I simply need to upgrade it to 4 or 6gb of it.

    Or

    My least favourite problem of all, Logic Board...$#@! THAT $#@!

    Let us know what it was Dre.

    Played with my mom's iPhone 5 for a while. Made my iPhone 4 feel like $#@!. It's so great, the way it feels in your hand is like a luxury watch. I want mine now.

    I'm liking the new iPhone so far. A lot of apps need to be updated though.

    My gf got her white.

    can't say that the black is much more beautiful than the white, as many sites had me believe. Both black and white are very nice. The only thing for sure is that the black is much more discreet while the white one screams Apple.
