    To iphone 4s or not to iphone 4s that is the question!! Okay folks, yes I have an iphone 4 and have been constantly bothered by my cell phone company to upgrade. I have done quite a bit of looking at the 4s and have come to the conclusion that its faster, and has this feature called Siri which, knowing my habits, I would use for a week then forget it was there, LOL. So that leave's speed and nice camera. Oh and a college age daughter looking over my shoulder wanting my iphone!!. So frankly, I'm of the opinion it might be better if I waited on the next one, as this one doesn't seem to offer me much. However on the plus side the upgrade is cheap.

    Upgrade is not cheap. they want 400 for a phone with the same memory that cost me 200 two years ago.

    And apple does not tell the truth about battery life.

    Apple. They're one of those 'evil corporations' that isn't evil because the liberals loved Steve Jobs, right? LMAO. Personally, I won't buy their products because they outsourced thousands of jobs to China, where they employ children and have an appalling safety record. That's the conservative in me. I stand by my principles - even when it means I don't have the 'funky' phone. But I sleep better at night knowing that my cell phone was built in a decent country, with good labor laws, and the children go to school instead of work.

    I'm sorta of leaning in the not going to upgrade direction too, because theres just not enough there for me to justify it. As to the made in China thing Cali, the name of the company I believe is Foxconn and they make more than just Apple, am pretty sure they are also making Dell, HP and many other's tech gadgets for them as well. It would be nice however to have some of this stuff made locally, and have tried very hard to look for that too and it's quite an adventure when you really look.

    I liked it better back in the old days when there were pay phones on every corner.
