What phone are you ditching to get an iPhone 5? [Poll]

What are you ditching to get an iPhone 5?

The question is simple: what old phone are you ditching to get a new iPhone 5? Is it a previous generation iPhone like last year's iPhone 4S, or an even older iPhone like iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 3G?

Or is it an Android phone, like the Samsung Galaxy S3 or S2, or Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S? Or an HTC One X or Nexus One? Something from Motorola like the RAZR? Another Android phone entirely?

Maybe a Windows Phone like the Nokia Lumia 900 or Lumia 800? Or a different kind of Windows Phone? Something by BlackBerry perhaps, like Bold or Torch or Curve? A webOS device like the Pre?

Or could the iPhone 5 be your very first smartphone? Vote up top and give me the details on what you're switching from and why in the comments!

What do you most want to see at the iPhone 5 event? [Poll]

What do you want to see from Apple at the iPhone 5 event?

After weeks and months of speculation, Apple's 2012 iPhone event day is upon us! We've laid it all out for you in our iOS 6 preview, iPhone 5 preview, and September 12 event preview. We've had our say on the iMore show.

Now it's your turn! What do you expect to see from Apple at the iPhone 5 event? Do you love the iPhone 5 design that's been leaked, or are you secretly hoping for something surprisingly new? Is it finally time for Apple to ship iTunes 11 and put the old, bloated, beast out of its misery? What about the iPad mini? Do you really think Apple will make us wait until October, or do you want it now? Could there be a surprise in iOS 6 like widgets? Could Apple have a subscription music service up their sleeve?

And what about my dream Bluetooth 4.0 iPod nano watch? Will I get it?

Vote in the poll up top and give me the details in the comment below. Tell me, iMore nation, what do you most want to see from Apple today?

Dear President Obama, ask not how you can dial an iPhone, ask how iMore can help you dial!

U.S. President Obama seems to have had some problems using an iPhone -- the most usable phone in the world -- this week. He'd borrowed it to make some thank you calls, but couldn't get it to dial. Years of living with BlackBerry had apparently hard-coded hard keyboards into his muscle memory, and made capacitive touch a challenge.

Super-dimensional stretching iPhone to iPad concept video

What if, when you pinched-to-zoom in iOS, it wasn't just your pictures or website that got bigger, but your entire device? Start with an iPhone 5. Pinch. iPad mini. Pinch. iPad. That, and fingerprint scanning, Siri mission-control, and more are shown off the Atama Studios concept video above. John Paczkowski from AllThingsD calls it insane but great. What else could you call Apple mastering bag-of-holding physics, unstable molecules, or extra-dimensional mass?

I'm just wondering why they didn't show the extra pinch down to iPod nano feature? Carrying it as my watch is my favorite part!

Nokia gets caught faking Lumia 920 image stabilization

Normally I wouldn't be writing about something like Nokia getting caught faking the camera work in their Lumia 920 PureView, but Nokia has been making some pretty bad marketing choices lately. They made those "smartphone beta test" commercials where they tried to brand the iPhone as a beta phone, and then launched the Lumia 900 with embarrassing bugs all it's own. Then, yesterday, Nokia took a swipe at Apple during their press event, once again making fun of the iPhone antenna. And now Nokia is embroiled in controversy over their new flagship phone.

Apple's more organized than Samsung

The above image shows an SSID some poor, frustrated member of the press used to express his or her frustration at trying to cover Samsung's Android and Windows Phone event live today at IFA 2012.

Clearly, if there's one thing Samsung isn't copying from Apple it's how to give a keynote. At the Galaxy S3 event, a female Samsung executive did the PR equivalent of spit take after hearing Samsung's new, tinkle-like audio tone, presumable for the first time.

At Unpacked today, Twitter seems to be of the collective opinion a male Samsung executive actually uttered an expletive on stage -- "We heard a lot of [beep] about sharing tonight."

It's a pity because some of the devices Samsung showed off look interesting, if not a little familiar...

Cooler Master Elegance Collection Cormo and Afrino cases for iPad review

To be perfectly honest, when I first saw the Cooler Master Elegance Collection cases for iPad, I wasn't sure I liked the look. They're made of 100% synthetic wool felt reminded me of the art I used to make as a child, or something like a faux-finish. However, the more I used them, the more they grew on me.

Poll: What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

That's it. We're done. Apple vs. Samsung has been exhausting and now that the jury has had it's say, awarding Apple some $1.05 billion in damages, it's time for you to have yours. We're leaving the comments wide open, handing you the mic, and slowly backing away from the internet for the night.

Did the jury reach the right decision? Did they get it totally wrong? Does copying kill innovation? Does litigation and a patent system gone haywire? Should Samsung have won on some counts as well? Should Apple have lost on their counts too? Or could you really care less at this point?

Vote in the poll up top and let loose in the comments below. Ducks and runs

AluPen Pro stylus for iPad review

I love hybrid stylus pens like the AlluPen Pro from Just Mobile. I use traditional ink pens all the time, and it's so much more convenient to have capacitive stylus tip available at the same time. I sometimes find them to be heavier than single-purpose pens or styluses, but the simple utility makes them worth it. The AlluPen Pro is also extremely well balanced, which helps enormously.

What's the worst gadget you've ever bought?

What's the worst device, accessory, or miscellaneous piece of technology you've ever had the misfortune to use? Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently said the Android-powered HTC Thunderbolt phone was one of the worst gadgets he'd ever bought. Given that Woz probably buys all the gadgets, that's quite a condemnation. How about you?
