For some time now, I’ve been a fan of the App Judgment podcast, which discusses new apps, devices and grades them on-air.

In his piece entitled iPhone 5, John Gruber made a statement that really stuck out to me: […] but there is no benchmark, no tech spec, to measure nice. But you can feel it. And that is what resonates with millions of people around the world. As soon as I read this, I was struck […]
