re: iOS 6: 5 Things To Like
As for DND, why can't you just turn off your devices like normal people? How is "turning your device off" suddenly revolutionary? It's not, nor is most of the updates. I put iOS6 on my iPad and wish I hadn't. I lost the native YouTube app, a lot of the "improvements" aren't even available unless I fork over more cash to Apple (which isn't going to happen).

I love my iPad, but to be honest, it would be just as good if it were an Android tablet. I can't wait to get a Surface Pro this winter.

Yeah it's really not as bad as the press is making it out to be and you know what, Google Maps wasn't perfect to begin with. I had plenty of moments where the directions lead me to a dead end using that app.

Aside from the Maps being inferior to their previous version, I really like the new iOS 6. I'm sure Apple will work hard to improve their Map app also.

Guess I'm wondering what's funny or disastrous about it... have you used it? I think it works just fine. Haven't noticed any issues compared to the Google maps application and it looks great.

LOL

Do not Disturb. Come on. Really? People shouldn't take their pet iPhone to bed if they don't want it to disturb them in the middle of the night. Simple solution to a simple problem...

The iPhone, any iPhone, is way WAY ahead of any Android device. I've had Blackberries and have the latest Samsung too. Nothing compares to the user experience of an iPhone, not by a long LONG shot!

Your objectivity is phenomenal. These are both great environments and it's possible to admit that without being a loser. I use both and am happy to do so.

I'm thrilled by the Do Not Disturb; anyone who isn't should see a head doctor because not dropping out regularly is harming us, literally. My hope is that the fact that this is baked in will start a trend, help us realize that we don't need to be pinged for text messages at 10:30 pm or 3:00 am.

True Google has had instant upload for over a year. Since only what 20% of Google devices-not including mine-have the OS with the upload feature what's that mean. Do I denigrate Android because more Apple users now have this feature than Android users? I hope not. We're playing leapfrog here and all benefit from that fact.

Passbook is limited but that's because it's starting out. NFC isn't the same thing frankly though there's some overlap. Submitted as evidence is the fact that Windows 8 supports NFC and also a tool analagous to Passbook. Let's check back in six months to see if it's a dog or a potential winner.

The iPhone 4S my company got me has a do not disturb function built in, in fact my old Nokia 6350 feature phone had one it is called the off button.
