iPhone 5

8 June, 2011

I don't rush for the latest

Unlike certain extremists, (usually open-source extremists), I don't rush for the latest. I can live without the latest version of software.

A while back, I scored myself a great bargain - an iPod touch (current, 4th generation, 8GB model). I knew I did not really need that iPod touch since I have an iPhone 4, but it was purchased for a special purpose: testing my iOS app.

Unlike Don who lives in beautiful Boston with access to advanced technologies, I am not a professional programmer, but still, I got myself an iOS Developer Program, and been working on some super simple and pretty silly apps.

iOS 5

iOS 5 beta was out yesterday to developers. I can get it legally, but I probably won't do that any time soon, at least not the first beta.

There are some very promising new features added to the iOS 5 (and iOS SDK), and I can see some of those features being used extensively. As for me, since I am not a programmer like Don, and I am not an extremist. I won't rush for that.

BTW, Don has access to Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN). MSDN's annual fee is known to be very expensive (anywhere from US$2,000 to US$20,000 per year). In comparison, the iOS Developer Program (only $99) is hardly anything.
