The home screen is a list of 4x5 apps with 4 apps on the hotbar.
The compass seems to have ripped off the look of a compass.
The settings menu has been taken more from the samsung S5 than the iphone
The camera has a take picture button.

Does apple own having a reasonable number of apps on a grid ?

Of course its proven at least once that its "invented" things other people made first.

Comment: Apples dont get viruses rehashed ? (Score -1, Troll) 72

I seem to remember Apple saying previously that "Macs' don't get viruses" now "IOS doesn't get viruses".

Any platform "doesnt get viruses" as long as its market share is small enough that most virus writers will ignore you.

When you get the market share then your fair game the the exploits which have been there since day 0 come out.

Only One US City Makes "Top Ten Internet Cities Worldwide" List 240

An anonymous reader writes "A new report today has ranked the Top 10 'Internet Cities' around the globe, based on a set of five criteria: connection speed, availability of citywide WiFi, openness to innovation, support of public data, and security/data privacy. One might expect high-tech cities like San Francisco and Tel Aviv to appear on a list of 'Internet Cities,' but they don't. Indeed, no Middle Eastern cities appear here at all, and — due, largely, to the United States' poor Internet speeds — the only US city to make this ranking is Seattle."

The needs of the business world is always changing and the needs of the internet is changing to meet it. HTML 5 isn't just a new shiny stuff which people can use. Its stuff people can do already but need large libraries and stuff to create now.
Newer libraries just mean that you will download less to the client, in order to provide the rich user experience they expect now a days.

TFA is pure FUD most of the problems which it highlights exist already. If anything HTML5 sorts out more issues than it creates.

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
