iPhone & iPad Live 278: Macworld 2012, iPad 3, iPhone 5


Once and for all stop calling it iPhone 5. There won't be an iPhone 5. People who wanted iPhone 5 got it back in October as iPhone 4S.

I’m not sure why using the term “iPhone 5″ upsets some people. It’s just a name. Internally at Apple, the next iPhone is “iPhone 5,1″ (iPhone 3G wasn’t the second generation, it was iPhone 1,2 or a variant of the original iPhone).
Apple could call the next iPhone anything they want. iPhone X. iPhone RED. iPhone Banana. Right now, Apple has had two iPhone models with 3 in it — iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, and two models with 4 in it — iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. There’s every chance the next two will be iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.
Either way, it’s nothing to get upset about.

Just got a clue from an insider, the next few names for iphone future generations: 4S-II, 4S-II-Plus, 4S-II-Plus-Plus, then after that we get Iphone 5.

I never had the chance to thank you guys for these truly informant video casts so here we go:
Thank you very much.

Haven't been this excited to join a paid beta since Frozen Synapse. The game has so much potential. Can't wait to start playing. 

Although, personally, I like the name of the blog, I think, in order to reach new players who may not be aware that the name of the game was Frontierville previously, you should probably consider a name change for potential new members to find you more easily.

I am absolutely opposed to a national ID card. This is a total contradiction of what a free society is all about. The purpose of government is to protect the secrecy and the privacy of all individuals, not the secrecy of government. We don't need a national ID card. -Ron Paul

Planned Parenthood quite literally saved my grand daughter's life with an early cancer screening. I find the Senators characterization of the organization small minded. It is the duty of any elected official to be informed on matters they address. Senator Dayton, shamefully, is not. Her words are harmful and worse, misinformed.

This is the best blog for anyone who desires to find out about this subject. You notice so much its nearly onerous to argue with you (not that I truly would want...HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a subject thats been wrote about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
