Please don't forget about Ken Thompson who is perhaps more directly responsible for the development of UNIX. Dennis Ritchie developed the C programming language which is the system programming language of the OS http://cm.bell-labs.com/who/dm....

95 comments (and counting) on a phone review? Really? I remember when InformationWeek was about computer and networking stuff. What's next, 3D television reviews for these people to fight over?

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
So we live in a world where anybody can buy, or should I say try, a $900 high tech product, just to return it because one "feels he spent $900 to get a fingerprint sensor?" Maybe it's because I am from the generation that is used to think and consider the pro's and cons of expensive gadgets BEFORE we buy them......but I would consider this behaviour a good reason to be locked up for a long time, for being a person without any common sense left. But maybe this is what becomes of "reviewers" that obviously don't get a phone for review purposes from the manufacturers anymore.

Keep deleting and moderating the comments asshat. Journalism at its finest.

You're up to a whopping 90 comments so far...unless you're deleting more as we speak! Mission accomplished! Might I suggest you purchase a new iPad next week and then return it for some bullshit, trumped up reason. Maybe the black color isn't black enough for you perhaps?

HIT WHORE AWAY!!!

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
"Morally wrong"?? Uh...ok. So I need to consult some higher power (or you) to determine what I should spend my money on?

Or how about this instead. There are people out there with the means and income to spend money on things that may be outside and beyond YOUR means and ability. Thats perfectly okay and absolutely nothing wrong with it. If it somehow bothers you, might I suggest you not worrying what the F other people do with their money.

Eric, the accusations were that you bought the phone with EVERY intention of returning it and only purchased it to write some hit whore article about Apple.

Admit you basically work in an industry that rewards hit whoring gossip more than actual journalism and factual based reporting.

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
Bryan I see you work for "banktech.com". You know when I look for advice on technology related matters I usually turn to the banking industry because god knows banks are leaders in innovation and bleeding edge technology! And your background is a reporter in municipal courts!?! Oh tell me more about what I should and shouldn't purchase in consumer technology. (Hope you are sharp enough to recognize sarcasm).

So lets address your accusation on brainwashing/marketing. I love asshats that think that everyone purchasing the latest Apple product is some mindless fanboi idiot. What if there is just one feature in the new phone that I've decided I want and have the means and money to buy it? Does that make me brainwashed if I want it? The truth is there may be any number of reasons someone gets a new phone and who the F are you to say they are just being brainwashed? Using your logic, we all just need to purchase just one car our entire lives because they all basically do the same thing huh?

p.s.
Really strange your banktech website uses the EXACT same layout, backend and template as information Week. How original. Are you friends with Eric? You both have a lot in common.
