New iPhone dilemma? 4S vs 5

Apple released the new iPhone 5 and I need to make a decision if I want to make a big pricy hop of $199 to the new iPhone 5 or go for the proven inexpensive iPhone 4S for $99 (or less).

Apple rolled out the new mobile Operating System for iPhone iOS which runs on both phones so the new OS shouldn’t influence my decision much (early reports say Apple Maps is horrible and Apple Passbook is a mystery as to how it actually works).

I guess I’ll have to study the Compare some more and see how the iPhone 5 and 4S stack up against my iPhone 4. I’ll also try and hit the Apple Retail Store sometime this week and try and do a “hands on” and see what I’ll miss if I don’t go with the iPhone 5.

In the upcoming days/weeks I’ll also post little snippets of information here that I run across on the web to help me make my decision.

Website update time again (really this time)

Dot Mac Moving Box

Apple’s Mobile Me & .Mac discontinued for iCloud

Apple is discontinuing Mobile Me and wants users to upgrade to Apple iCloud but there are a few Apps that I can’t live without yet and I guess they will not work if I upgrade my current Mac to 10.7 Lion (or Mountain Lion even…).

My only iDevice of the moment, my iPhone would be nice on iCloud but I don’t really listen to music on my phone (other than i heart radio) so I guess I’ll be ok.

One problem is all my old Dot Mac Websites will go away (some need to). I guess over the next few weeks I’ll try and save them and redo them by hand and move them here on this website.

I guess while I am at it, I may as well clean up the blog and freshen up a few of the other static pages of mines out there on the Internet.

Yep, that is the plan … Really this time…
