  You can't walk into an Apple Store and buy an unlocked phone. You must get a contract with Verizon to get an unlocked phone. Many of us want an unlocked phone without a contract so we can use other cell companies (Cricket, Virgin, etc). They have unlocked phones in Canada, but not here :(
Good! Maybe they can then focus on innovation again.
/senses Samsung stole to relabel and resell ;)
Not that I believe this, but reading is failing some.          I take that to mean, BECAUSE the iPhone 5 has such low yields, they are going to a different design that doesn't have low yields. The low yields are hurting Apple. Yah, it's great to have demand, but there are many that are turned off from even purchasing an iPhone 5 because they don't want to wait. Apple could move more phones if they had a version that could easily be built by Foxconn. 
I'd really like to know when a user would have to beat their phone like in the video? Seems a bit excessive to me. 
I don't care what they're assembling, jobs in the US is win win no matter what the circumstances. It's a step in the right direction to bring jobs back. I hope the rumors are true!   And yes, I'd pay an extra $50 per phone if it meant jobs in the US.
Definitely agree, this isn't cool. I'm getting closer to moving to Sprint every day, but would rather buy the unlocked iPhone 5 and go with Virgin. We'll see what happens.
  I don't agree with this. Even consumers are doing video editing / processing, photo editing, audio conversion, running multi-apps, number processing, etc.    If Apple transitions to ARM, I don't believe it will be 100%. I believe their low-end machines will, but the rest will be Intel. ARM isn't going to catch up to Intel. Intel has so much speed in their back pocket right now, they could literally jump another 1-2ghz overnight if they wanted to. They are simply waiting...
Lightning was made to take us 10 years into the future. Most likely to be compatible only with USB 2.0, but 3.0 and thunderbolt as well. Give Apple a chance to get this going before you talk down on it. It's been what, a little over a month?
Apple still has a ton of momentum. As a Mac / iOS developer, I view this as a chance, a shot in the arm to rejuvenate iOS and push the UI on both operating systems to new levels. I haven't been this excited with Apple in a while.   Note: in before TS posts!!! That's some kind of achievement.
