    @spongefile I don’t think investor-powered capitalism allows you to leave a product be :)

    @spongefile But might just be my lack of imagination :) Maybe there are useful big advances that could be made, but Apple are choosing other things.

    @spongefile Like MacBooks… they’ve thinner. Got retina screens. Otherwise, they haven’t changed drastically for years and years.Not sure how they could.

    @spongefile Yeah, but I don’t know what I would be excited about in a new phone, now basics are good. But they have to pretend these are major advances.

    @infovore That’s lovely.

    @spongefile I know. I’d like for there to be a new model with so much good stuff I’m having to convince myself to buy it. But, nope, nothing exciting.

    @spongefile I feared it would start seeming slow with another iOS update, but not yet… A better camera would always be nice, but it’s fine.

    @spongefile I haven’t noticed anything buggy since I upgraded (just the usual “why did they change that?” annoyances).

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @spongefile No. Did they say in what way? It seems to just work.

    @spongefile I do like my SE. Just the right size. No desire to get anything bigger.

    Said it before but if they just play the archive John Peel shows they have, one each night, in order, I'll listen to it till the day I die
