MacJury #1112: A Weekend with the iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S didn’t seem to wow the crowd at its announcement, but the sales numbers clearly indicated there was lots to be excited about. The MacJury spent the weekend using their new iPhone 4Ss, and share stories of the shenanigans involved in acquiring the phone, SIM card swapping and surgery, and experiencing puppy love for Siri. Activation issues, favorite features (and no one picked the same one), the ups and downs of Photostream, and more are entered into evidence by the panel of Jeff Carlson, Tonya Engst, Pat Fauquet and host Chuck Joiner.
