Submission + - iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S cameras compared – improvements are barely noticeab->

redkemper writes: The iPhone 5s svelte frame and all of its scratching, light-peaking and poorly delivered iOS 6 Maps app might be the talk of the town, but what about its new and improved 8-megapixel camera? Apple didn’t spend too much time talking about the iSight camera at the iPhone 5s unveil event because it’s mostly the same as the one found in the iPhone 4S.

Comment Wrong university? (Score 1) 337 337

The same thing happened to me whenever I played fighting games. I was never really good at them but I played them a lot because in my mind it was a way of getting out my frustrations, but I would leave a session of gaming feeling much angrier than before. After a while I just had to stop, it was making me feel miserable to not only lose a lot but also to walk away with my blood pressure high.
