2 AM CDT I will be on my couch doing me some pre-ordering! Wish there was a iPhone 6 4" I really do. I don't want to use my upgrade just for the 5s and then wait two years to get upgrade pricing again (grandfathered unlimited plan).
Does your chipped card seamlessly integrate into apps to pay for items? Because that's also an extension of Apple Pay. I'm guessing that functionality will be enabled through Safari at some point too. That's what else you are getting.
I like it. I like it a lot. I think the implications are huge. Especially with the Fitness app giving you these goals of globally recommended fitness/caloric intake levels. It'll make it that much easier to become healthier.
It also looks nice. It's not ostentatious. It's not in your face. It is customizable. It is not shoehorning a mobile OS into 2" screen. It's not 270º when claiming to be 360º.
Now with HomeKit, HealthKit, and WatchKit, how soon...
All mobile sites should die a slow, painful death. Okay not all but 99% of them. They're terrible. They take away standard functionality. They don't allow you to zoom. They often employ ridiculous gesture control that ends up shifting you to an article that you don't want. Their ads are often taking up 30%+ of the screen. It's like they developed these "mobile" sites with a desktop browser in mind which is unbelievable.
