    The guy beside me just got the 5S. He's a bit of a fanboy but he admits that it's not much different than the 5.
    Well, I've just finished installing it, and it's kind of disappointing. Sure, I'm impressed, but I'm disappointed at the same time. I'm waiting for the devs to take advantage of iOS 7.

    It didn't seem as if iOS 7 was made for the iPad and iPad Mini.

    I know.
    I was fine with the previous versions of iOS being shoehorned onto the iPad, but iOS 7? Made for iPhone, and it really shows. If anything, they should at least try to put more icons on the home screen.

    The control center alone is proof of how they just shoehorned it onto the iPad. They could at least put a home screen or multitasking shortcut there to try to deprecate those rather awkward gestures, which I find rather awkward, for lack of a better term.

    The guy who owns the 5S feels the same about iOS7 on the iPad. There's a couple of other things he doesn't like about iOS7 and some things he loves. It appears to be one of those love/hate things going on.

    So I got the Amber update on my 920 and I downloaded Nokia Pro Cam. So far with Amber I'm not too impressed. Some things appear to be working the slower (GPS) and my battery drain issue still exists. So I'm not overly happy. I have no idea if I got GDR2 as I don't appear to have FM radio... ?

    Found the radio. It's in music + video. I thought it would be similar to Nokia Symbian. How silly of me.

    Some people are not nostalgic and tend to see old technology as useless or pointless. I'm a fan of future tech but I appreciate where technology has come from. I've grown up with it pretty much my whole life, from the first home computers to the latest smartphones.

    Old tech is good for about 5 minutes just to see how far we have come. The old Atari 2600 games are good for a 5 minute time waster now on mobile but they soon lose there appeal. I grew up with one of these.

    Amstrad cpc 6128 - it was the first (and only) PC to use 3" disks when all other PC's were using tapes. Games were incredibly hard to get hold of but I have fond memories of playing this.

    Ahh the joys of 128kb of memory.

    Interesting.

    I had one of these second hand:

    My brother bought one of these Timex Sinclair:

    And in school I learned computers on one of these:

    That was when I was in 3rd of 4th year primary school (so around 9 years old) only two in the class.

    I don't miss any of those things.

    Did you know there was a 8" floppy? I've actually seen one. I remember the 5" and the 3.5". I hated them both. LOL! I was so happy to see the floppy drive die.
