Stupid mlb 2011 app doesn't have the audio working. It's opening day and I can't listen to baseball wtf. Googled it and Andriod users are having the same problem. What a disappointment.

Complicated murda man

Why don't the BlackBerry and Android versions include Live Streaming for MLB.TV subscribers?
The BlackBerry and Android versions of the application do not currently support the Live MLB.TV streaming because these devices do not support the IETF HTTP live streaming specification for adaptive bit rate streaming that MLB.com uses to provide game video. As devices incorporate support, the feature sets will come into line.

Yay they finally got it working. It isn't too relevant to this thread, just saw that we were talking about the mlb app.

True, but supposedly iOS 5 will have a feature that allows the user to rewind time making the ship date earlier.

During their earnings call, Apple confirmed that LTE adoption is at least one generation away.

http://www.tuaw.com/2011/04/21/apple-confirms-lte-iphone-is-at-least-one-generation-away/

Quote:
According to Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook, Apple would have to redesign the iPhone to accommodate the first generation LTE chipsets used in smartphones such as the Verizon Wireless' HTC Thunderbolt. Apple is not willing to make that concession at this point and will wait for future generation LTE hardware before it adopts this 4G technology.
Kinda sucks for 3GS'ers like myself. Do I get iPhone 5 this year, or wait until the LTE iPhone comes out in 2012?

I applaud Apple's decision to hold off on LTE. I don't want it until it works well enough to be practical. Maybe by 2012 battery technology will catch up.

This will be a much talked about question. I think it greatly depends on what the iPhone 5 offers. Should be interesting to see.

I think I'm gonna want the iPhone 5 just for the camera. The iPhone 4 has such a nice camera, and 5's will be just as good or better (hopefully). I could use a better camera in my pocket.

HD display...Processor speed...meh
