    That's the point.  SOMEONE reads the documents before he signs them.  If you want, feel free to hire a paralegal to read all your documents before signing.

     

     

    Yes, we'll all run out right now and hire our own team of white shoe lawyers. A grand idea. I'll get started right after my secretary comes in here and lights my cigar.

     

    Steve Cook can afford to hire lawyers.  If you can't, then I guess you're back to reading the Terms & Conditions on your own.

    Hi Jon -

     

    May I just refresh your memory. Here's a dandy little quote, directly from you:

     

    if you don't like it, buy something else

     

    Here's another quote, directly from you:

     

    I never said "go buy something else".

     

    For someone who claims to be so careful to read every legal document you encounter, you sure do have an amazing capacity for contradiction. IM-press-IVE.

     

    Keep 'em comin'...

     

    See the little text ballon with quote marks next to the smiley face?  That's how you quote a reply.

     

    Go find the post he made, click on 'Reply', and then click on that little text balloon.  That way, you can show exactly what he said and when he said it, since your reply will also have a link to the post you're quoting.

    But then the quotes wouldn't look like they came from me, well at least one of them wouldn't, since I didn't post it =)

    Who's Steve Cook? Do you mean Tim?  You're making this too easy...

    The best thing about this thread, were the other threads just like it when the other releases of iOS were launched and people downloaded them unknowningly. Yes this is the most visual change so far, but nonetheless, this thread happens every iOS launch.

    For me and it's only my opinion I think this iOS is so different then any other iOS .It's all the white everywhere I just get a headache when I have to use my iphone. Things like notes and reminders were nice to use  now there more complicated and ugly  and reading text is a problem with the color scheme  . The icons are f...ing awful . Skeuomorphs ,shadows, contrasts mead it unique now the have gone with the flat look with iOS 7 and android,microsoft also have the same flat look. The all look the same now with every phone OS you use but Apple did not give people any option that's what makes me angry with Apple .I bought the iphone not only for the style of the phone but because I like the OS as well and then you take it away and replace it with something else that is so different .I had to download ios 7 I did not have a option because of a problem with my iphone. The ios needed to be updated but this is just too much. You could have put the best of both worlds or give people a option for the classic look. ios 7 looks like it was done in a hurry.

    I don't see a smiley face or text balloon, all I have is a left pointing arrow with 'Reply' next to it at the bottom left of the message box, so I click on that in order to reply. I have to copy and paste the quote in order to put it in as I have done above.

     

    Could you give me more help to find the text balloon and smiley face? Thanks.

    Thank you Gail, I can see the problem now, I read and reply using an iPad 2 and don't have those extra icons. Thanks anyway.

    I want to be able to install iOS6. iOS7 is too bright, has too thin button icons or too much text. Animations too slow and too many. Don't get me started on the horrible gradients of the app icons!

     

    My eyes actually get tired from using it!

     

     

     

    The carefeully crafted skeumorphed design set previous iOS apart from the competitors! Sure, Apple could have eased up a bit - and that would be making it look more modern! You can tell by all the 'long shadows' appearing that designers are tired of how flat 'flat design' is. There are good examples of flat design, which has just a teeny tiny bit of texture, subtle gradients and shadows - making objects touchable and giving depth to the interface.

     

    iOS7 is flat design done wrong.

    I 'inherited' an iPad which was on iOS5 and wanted to upgrade to iOS6, but couldn't because Apple forced it to iOS7.

    IOS7 makes my iPhone look like a cheap childs toy !

    Also my battery is losing power faster than ever !!

    Once again Apple has show that they now **** about programming

     

    In stead of downgrading our phones they should improve, like making it able to make real copies of pictures ...

    Now if you make a "copy" of a picture to put it in a self made folder, it's nothing more than a pointer to the original photo. If you delete the original, the copy is also gone ... HELLO ... do they even know what a copy is ???

    I want to clean up the folder where all the new photos are put in and organize the photos in different folders, not put them in folders and having to keep the original one in the default folder too :-/

    That's simply not Apple's vision of how you use this product. They want to keep you away from files and file management, and instead deliver the content through the apps. It's just the way it is and I've mostly gotten used to it (not easy after years of PCs).

     

    Devices specifically are not intended to be computers but rather they are mobile extensions of a desktop (and are given their content through iTunes). That gets a bit messy since many people use these devices independent of a computer, but the basic infrastructure still treats the device as a client. Hence you cannot delete much iTunes-synced content from the device, but rather you delete it on the computer and it gets removed from the device at next sync.

     

    Yeah it is sometimes a pain.  And Apple even screws it up sometimes. With Mavericks they fixed a bug (they didn't call it a bug) where deleting a photo from an album would delete it from the whole library. Totally inconsistent behavior when you are really just deleting a pointer.

    Other than having to update my iTunes to 11 for free after updating my iPhone to iOS 7 for free, that's about it.  I still haven't seen where Apple 'knowingly' interfered with your setup.

     

    Did you read the Terms & Conditions of iOS 7 before updating?

     

     

    7.2 YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, USE OF THE iOS SOFTWARE AND ANY SERVICES PERFORMED BY OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE iOS SOFTWARE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY AND EFFORT IS WITH YOU.

     

     

    Seems pretty clear to me.

     

    How about this.

     

    Does it say anwhere (either in the T&C or in a changleog) that updating your device to iOS7 will also require the use of a specific version of iTunes, and that this version of iTunes is not compatible with certain older hardware?

     

    Because that is the important question here.

     

    It's all very well saying "did you read the T&C", "you accepted them, so it's your fault" etc., but that does not tell the whole story. The whole point of Apple, as opposed to Microsoft, is that they have total control of both the hardware and the software, so these kinds of inconsistencies should not really happen, at least not without some kind of warning...

    I have made the following suggestions to Apple:

     

    1. All iOS updates should include the bold font disclaimer that they cannot be reversed after being installed.

     

    II. Clearly state the hardware and software requirements for using the update, including computer syncing.

     

    C. Provide the option to delete updates  if not installed, so as to not take up space on the device.
