Subject: New iPhone 5 - images and details

Battery life improved – 8 hours of talk or browsing time on 3G or LTE, 10 hours on WiFi
Same general camera specs as 4S but 40% faster, with better low-light performance for those club nights, lens cover is sapphire lens crystal to be more durable and clear, ability to take 28-megapixel panorama pictures. Takes better videos too, of course.  Front-facing camera improved, can do FaceTime over regular network and not just Wi-Fi now.
Improved microphones and noise cancelation for clearer calls
NEW CONNECTOR CALLED "LIGHTNING" (a play on Thunderbolt, their desktop connection system) – meaning your current accessories may not work with it. But it's 80% smaller.  Yay? However, there is an adaptor for that (which will probably cost you).
iOS6: New Maps application (no longer Google Maps)

…still no price or release date.

G unit 2363 up, 1338 down
A group of ***s that suck each others *****. Also know as 50 cents ass toys. These group of queers are the gayest of the gay. They eat each others sperm and use it for their jerry curls and afros.

50 Cent A.K.A. 50 ***** in his ass in one night. He is the main *** in gay unit. He sometimes goes by the name the kernal of corn, why you may ask. Well when he eats the **** of the other gay unit members he really likes it when they eat corn the day before so he has some extra added flavor. 50 pesos was a exconvict. He would steal ky jelly and rubber dildos from porn shops just to go to jail and get ass ****ed. When he was signed by slim shady and dre it was a set up by surge night origionaly, but both dre and eminim didnt read the contract that sugs lawyer changed out and now they are stick with 50 pesos and the gay unit for a few more years.

I like my iPhone 4 and my iPad I can't see the need to keep buying the latest and greatest just to have the latest and greatest. Apples products are top shelf and last forever.

Olivia A.K.A. Oliver is the one shemale of the Gay unit. She was born as a man but 50 pesos found him and couldnt get a chick if he paid for it. In the public eye he was looking more like a *** each and every day. He paid oliver the crackhead to become his member of gay unit. Well once he signed the contract and since oliver didnt have any schooling what so ever and couldnt read. In the contract it said he woud have to get a boob job to look like a female and change his name. He could still keep his dick so he could **** 50 cent in the ass and the rest of gay unit.

Loyyd banks A.K.A. sperm banks was also another crack head that 50 pesos took in under his nut sack. He gets his nick name for all the mouth shots he takes from the rest of the crew. He is more or less a human pin cushion for ****s.

Young buck A.K.A. buck me in the ass with 5 ***** at once. He was born in samalia and when starvin marvin was flown over in the cardboard box to south park cartman threw young buck in the trash. Well 50 guys in one night found him wandering around looking in the trash behind a gay porn store in mississippi. 50 being the type of guy to never turn down a dick in his ass, asked buck me in the ass with 5 ***** at once if he would like some candy and lured him to his limo with a rubber dick
G G G G unit raise up your ***** and serve me in the ass.

Im a wanksta wank me off in my face I love sperm in my eyes 2

My trend of not owning anything from Apple shall continue. Nothing against what they make, its just not for me. My computers are built by me, so I can upgrade them when I want to. My music player will beat any Apple player. My phone, is not as good, but who cares, I just texting and make calls.

So basically if you have the 4s, you're really just as updated as you can be? Seems the 5 has the exact same features as the 4s, just updated?

Oh and finally 4G, that "new innovative" technology that Android phones have been running on for the past 2 years.
