What color iPhone 6 do you want? [Poll]

What color iPhone 6 do you want?

What color iPhone 6 do you want? Forget size. Forget RAM or storage capacity. Forget 802.11ac or LTE-Advance. Forget all the specs. Forget everything and anything besides the hue of the next iPhone, what it will look like in your hand, how it will look when the light catches it. What color will it be?

The original iPhone came only in black and aluminum. The iPhone 3G introduced white, and the iPhone 5s, gold. The iPod nano, iPod shuffle, and iPod touch have all had more color options. Currently the iPod touch comes in red, blue, yellow, black and white. The iPhone 5c offers green, pink, yellow, blue, and white. Should those also be options for the iPhone 6? Should Product Red?

If you could have your iPhone 6 in any color at all, what would it be?

Georgia's #ALSIceBucketChallenge draws blood!

So I gleefully helped Rene do his #ALSIceBucketChallenge just over a week ago and, of course, he turned around and challenged me. Well, it might have taken me entirely too long to respond, but you can see me finally going through with it above. Needless to say, the ice decided to make me pay for the delay by drawing some blood, but it's all well and good in the name of charity. Now that I'm done, I'm challenging my co-hosts Brianna Wu from Isometric and Guy English from Vector, as well as John Siracusa of ATP because that would just be an amazing thing to see. So, watch the video, and then go and donate to ALSA.org.

Best iPhoneography of the week

Image submitted by iMore reader sankarphotography

Every day, millions of photos are taken around the world, and a good chunk of those are taken on an iPhone. It's no wonder why — the iPhone is super portable, has an amazing iSight camera and an incredibly easy to use Camera app. Combine that with the ability to share photos instantly via Twitter, Instagram and other social networks, and you have the perfect solution for capturing and publishing any moment imaginable. So, each week we're going to scour the social networks for uplifting, inspiring, touching, and all around amazing photos using #iphone #iphoneography #vscocam and similar hashtags and embed the best of what we find. And since iMore has an Instagram account now, if you really want to get our attention and get featured, use #imoregram to make sure we don't miss it. Enjoy!

iPhone #ALSIceBucketChallenge proves Samsung marketing clueless. Again.

Earlier today Samsung marketing thought it would be a good idea to have the Galaxy S5 take the #ALSIceBucketChallenge — which has succeeded in generating record donations for an incredibly worthy cause — and use it not only to advertise their phone, but to try to do it at the expense of their competition, including the iPhone. The problem obvious to anyone outside Samsung marketing — aside from the stupefying perversion of charity — is that the conditions under which they performed the challenge were pretty much fine for any of the competing phones they called out, including the iPhone. To prove it, I took 15 minutes and made the video above (after taking 45 min. to shake my head first).

I donated to ALS when I made my own video last week. I'm donating again today. I only hope Samsung marketing and everyone who made their ill-considered video is, at the very least, breaking open their massive bank accounts to help out as well.

Check out the new iMore commenting system!

As you may have noticed we've launched an all-new, all-awesome commenting system. I should start by saying this is just the beginning and we'll be adding many features to the new system in the weeks and months to come, but for right now there are three highlight — new design that matches our new header, up/down-voting so you can support the really insightful, productive comments. (And, you know, bury other kind...), and report a comment so you can flag spam and anything truly inappropriate.

Which social networks do you use? [Poll]

Which social networks do you use?

You can find me @reneritchie most of the time. That's because the social network I use most is Twitter. I use it on my iPhone on the go, on my Mac while I'm working, and on my iPad while I'm reading or browsing. I use it to follow a few people I know and a lot of people in my industry. I seldom look at RSS anymore. To find out what's going on, I use Twitter. To keep in touch with real-life family and friends, and a few other people in the industry who prefer it, I use Facebook on the iPhone or the web. I use Instagram as well — also @reneritchie — from my iPhone, and sometimes share to Twitter and Facebook from there. And... that's about it. Only not really. Let me explain...

I do use Facebook but I don't put a lot of personal information there. I don't store a lot of photos, I don't check in, and don't do anything much at all but share the occasional story, and like and comment on the occasional post or link. That's more than I do on LinkedIn though. Mostly because I can't find anything else to do on LinkedIn. Likewise Pinterest.

Google+ I use because Google's bundled Hangouts there and that's our office video conferencing tool and what we use for our podcasts. Otherwise, I share the occasional story there too, and the occasional +1 or comment, and I keep up with my Google- and Android-invested friends. Like LinkedIn, however, I'm hard pressed to find anything else much to do there. And... that's about it. Seriously this time. Kinda.
