Yeah, I've seen pictures taken with this new phone and honestly they aren't any better then a regular camera with say 14-20 MP. I honestly think it is a publicity stunt to get people to buy this phone. A normal person doesn't need or will even notice a difference in the pictures at 41MP Unless you are a crime scene investigator or someone that needs to see a bird crapping on Burj Khalifa's spire 2800ft up from the ground, then don't buy into the hype Funny shit though

What many people don't get is that the number of megapixels alone doesn't decide the picture quality, there are many more factors which contribute to the quality.

So I'm asking again, is this the completed look of the base's south side? It doesn't look like to me that all fins have been extended, especially at the edges.

They gradually extend being open from the edges. So, the ones near the centre will be the most extended, the edge panels being the least.

Most of us are New York's lovers and are a bit frustrated not to have an over 2000 sq ft tower,which is the new standart about super tall.
There is no economic need for such a tall tower but what about an OBSERVATION TOWER?
I think we should have one in NY(maybe a 3000 sq ft one).
It's not gonna hapen there but idealy it should be on Governor's island to magnify the skyline......

height restrictions would block an observation/communications tower just like a residential or office building of the same height. The tallest observatory that's not in an office tower will probably be the New York Wheel on Staten Island.

I agree 100%. Quality of components and the set-up of the camera are a few other's. The main function of "megapixels" is to create detail. There's nothing like taking a picture of your neighbors house from 200 yards away and then be able to zoom in with a magnifying glass and see what kind of windows he used The Iphone has suffered from this "purpleish haze" issue since it's inception, and continues to suffer right up until now with the 5. But honestly, since the fan boy's continue to pay $600+ for them every year or so, why would Apple start using quality components or quality workmanship? Gotta love their latest commercials though..."designed in California"
Those pictures above are great no matter what and thank you abc for sharing
