The long-awaited iOS 5 is now out, part and parcel with a bunch of neato new features. There seemed to be a lot of people who were sort of bummed out by the whole iPhone 4S thing, so now there’s something to perk you up a little, you and the rest of us who are still using outdated hardware. The perks include, but are not limited to:

  • A completely revamped notifications system
  • iCloud, which allows for things like Wi-Fi sync
  • iMessage, a free alternative to text-messaging
  • Direct Twitter integration
  • and much much more

So yeah, if you aren’t getting the iPhone 4S, go ahead and grab the update and feel like you have a totally knew phone. I’ll be over here making sure that I don’t have apps or data that I care about on my totally-not-jailbroken, totally-not-an-ancient-third-generation-model iPod Touch.
