No pool for you

I worked for a web company in the early 00s who were trying to be more hip and trendy so bought a pool table for the kitchen area.

No one ever played it because the boss would just hear you and come to tell you to stop slacking off.

Not really sure why he bothered buying it.. company didn't last long.

UI

None of these phone UIs work well on the current size of phones, dragging down to see your notifications? all the interface elements at the very top and very bottom where you have to juggle your hand to reach? i really hope that there's some innovation in this area soon and we don't just see the current OSs on bigger screens offering the same flawed user experience.

Be careful what you wish for

I live on an estate which has only FTTP, no conventional copper, and once you're out of your year's cheap offer, the lowest package available from any of the available providers is ~£50 a month!

Mole says Apple A5 chip runs too hot for iPhone

Kingsley

Blast from the past....

Wasn't the G5 too hot for laptops? maybe a switch to intel phone chips on the cards now then? :-/

Ten... wireless speakers

other options...

You could also consider Sonos? it's a pretty slick wireless implementation for around the home.. or for something simpler I have a Sony SRS-BT100, great sounding and works with any Bluetoth A2DP device..

Screen is a deal breaker

To say the screen is a bit poor is an understatement. it's diabolical, even in landscape to get the right angle to watch anything at is a mission, and you can forget readng those pdfs on it.

I had one for a while and easily installed the custom rom and had a play about, but you just can't get over some very poor hardware decisions, regardless of how cheap it might be.
