My TiVo Premiere was worse.@ddlevine We sell those in the store (for the 6). They’re very nice. Soft inside, tough outside. Grippy bits too.@ddlevine That’s the Apple leather case. It’s nice. Already scuffed. Very soft.@treestman @johnfbraun Many Mac users do too, including many who should know better.@JustinSeeley I must be on their payroll, amirite? #ComcastApologist ;)I like Comcast X1 because I can record everything I want to watch later and STILL watch Bruins preseason hockey in real time.@DJDarren genius more like penius amiriteApple releases fourth OS X Yosemite public beta http://t.co/oYwNfpU05k via @iMore@flargh “Windows 10, because that’s how many flushes it took to get Windows 8 to clear the bowl”

But it’s incumbent upon consumers to educate themselves about potential limitations.@sambreed @CLINT holy shit that sweater is incredible@flargh it would be helpful if iOS notified users that updating in iTunes was an option. I've been getting a lot of these questions too.
Retweeted by Peter Cohen@briantoth That I TOTALLY agree with.@kappalouie 8 or 16 GB? Absolutely. Buy a bigger phone, cheapskate.Being mad that your iPhone doesn’t have enough RAM to do a big OTA update is like being mad at your Corolla for not towing a boat.@reaperhulk I understand the complaint entirely. People need to understand the limitations of the hardware they buy.@CastIrony 1. They don’t anymore. 2. see my previous comment. Bottom line: In some cases, syncing to a Mac or PC is not optional. Period.@adambanksdotcom Agreed. But people have to differentiate, in the words of a colleague, AM from FM: Actual Machine code vs Fucking Magic.@swizzlr Understood, but the space requirements didn’t come out of nowhere. Lots of code changed in iOS 8.Otherwise, what do you expect Apple to do? The phone need space to decompress and install the files. Unless you want a brick in your hand.@Ihnatko Kubrikian!People who complain about the amount of space iOS OTA updates (temporarily) consume: Do it on a Mac or PC using iTunes.
