I stopped by a Verizon store last week and was told that they will be paying $200 for iPhone 5 or 5C, and $300 for iPhone 5S.  He said you would get a promo code when you pre-ordered the 6S and that you would bring in your old phone to the store and give them the promo code and they will credit your account.   When I pre-ordered my wife's iPhone 6S from the Verizon site it said that I would get emailed a promotion code when I activate the new phone.  My confirmation...
Yes, this was a great deal last year.  I traded in two iPhone 4 and bought a 6 and a 6+.  I was hoping that Verizon would have the offer again and I could trade in an iPhone 5 and get a 6s.  I haven't seen anything about it yet though, and the most I see my 64GB iPhone 5 going for elsewhere is like $120.
If you wait until the 16th to pre-order you probably won't be getting it until late October, that's why I don't want to wait.  My anniversary is Oct 9 and I was hoping to give my wife the phone then.
Dang, why couldn't they have added Discover earlier.  Now I won't be able to order my wife's iPhone 6s and pay for it with my Discover and Apple Pay and get 10% back.     Maybe Discover has held off on this on purpose, so they aren't giving out $65 or more in cash back to millions of people pre-ordering new iPhones.
 I used to think that too, but with apps like iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, etc. there are already a ton of other sources that people can be using to listen to musice that Apple gets no money from.  So why not start allowing app makers to access the FM radio part of the chip and write apps that apple could possibly make money off of (paid apps, iAds, etc).
 SlingTV does not include the OTA networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC), so it is missing all Fox shows.
 Ok, so say while you are a work you think of a way that could make what you do easier/faster/cheaper.  You tell a coworker about it and they think it helps too.  Your coworker tells your boss about it and your boss likes the idea too.  The company implements it and it saves a bunch of money, so your coworker is given a promotion and a raise.  You get nothing.  Would you be upset?
You are right, and that is why I said things like "I'm pretty sure they are wrong", and "as I understand it". I know that is what the articles say, I believe they are wrong.  HBO has stated that there will be no live streaming versions of the channels, just on demand content available after it had aired on the channels (I thought it was on the HBO Now FAQ page but I just looked and don't see it now).  This was important becuase some people were asking about boxing, and the...
 Don't count on that.  You may be able to get the prime time shows, but I doubt you will be able to get the actual live stream of the channel, local programming, or any of the sports carried on those channels.  You will have to use an OTA antenna and your TV tuner, or another DVR like a TIVO to get that I bet.
A couple issues with this article (and most of the ones recently).   I'm pretty sure they are wrong about the cost thing.  Comcast will have to make thier programming available at a cost comparable to what they charge other companies like Dish Network/DirecTV/Verizon Fios etc.  Not a price comparable to CBS's deals with Apple.  However, comparable is a pretty broad term, so don't think that just because DirecTV pays Comcast $3 a sub that Apple will get that same price,...
