Apple uncloaks top 10 tools of iOS 5

Neur0mancer
Happy

Killer app

It seems that Apple have finally figured why young people have Blackberries - BBM.

Imessage will offer a strong incentive for people to not get BBs just for chatting. Chat on iphones, which is currently only via third party apps, arent nearly as good as bbm.

Let's not forget that they would search you on the way in and collect phones, then when they went missing they wouldn't be responsible for any losses.

Squirt

The Rolls Royce of keyring tools is the Leatherman Squirt p4. Normally I wouldn't buy such an expensive device (£45) however my local John Lewis made a mistake and sold it to me for £12.

Lame

This version of the console is 5 years too late. Everyone who has an xbox, won't upgrade, and anyone who wanted one, would have got an elite 3 years ago.

Fantastic

This game is seriously awesome. I love the online part as well and have already got a posse together for taking on banditos.

But! I still prefer GTA4 because I am basically an urban individual and armadillos scare me.

Decent enough

I got this phone as a free upgrade for my wife who had a case of iphone envy. Its quite a nice phone, big though. The touch interface is rubbish though and it will register a flick up or down as a press all the time. The haptic feedback is nice when typing though.

Eventually it will be cheaper to add dimensions instead of worthy, decent programming.

We will all be in Dante's 7th Dimension of Hellishly boring programming. "Wooooh, it's like we're in the tv but in the future and watching Brockian Ultra Cricket" we will say, but actually we will be crying inside.

Crying.

E-book buyers favour iPad over Kindle and co.

Neur0mancer
FAIL

Interesting

From my perspective, I am in the market for a ebook reader but the price gap between a kindle dx and an ipad is basically non-existent. If the ebook readers want to hit their sales out of the park they need to come down in price to become a commodity, not a niche device.

The ipad (and I won't be buying one) is a much more useful device for a similar price point. Where's the pricing differentiation?
