Code red, do you know what obsolete is? Your iphone just got upgraded to ios 5. It is by definition... not obsolete or part of any "planned obsolescence"
If not having Siri makes your phone obsolete, then EVERY phone ever
is now obsolete, (including every 3gs, and ip4 Apple will be selling in late 2011, 2012)
There's a feature you want, then pay for it. Or pirate it. "It's still a feature"...
Do you get mad at airlines because they charge more for 1st class? Same thing.

For the longest time, I thought Apple might have turned a slight leaf, and I had squeaked past without being screwed over by Apple's typical planned obsolescence schemes. WRONG.
If I have to go through that much trouble, I'll wait until an Android phone has the same capabilities and get rid of my Apple phone altogether.
