Where does wifi factor into this? And why aren't there multinational MVNOs? We need handsets that use wifi for most calls, switch to cellular very cleanly when wifi quality drops, and uses the stratosphere towers when out of cellular range (or to augment data provision).
You talk as if you can't do that already? It doesn't SHOW your location well, but it locates you VERY well with wifi. I use it with Find my Friends to find my wife in shopping centres. There are at least 3 problems with Apple's current implementation:1) there's no 3D map ability to show me different floors on the map - so I could be straight above or below her2) it doesn't overlay a map of the shopping centre to show me shops or layouts3) it doesn't show me what direction...
There are actually other options Apple could pursue with A8 chips etc.   * my comment above - an iPad with keyboard could look like a thinner MBA.   * Take an AppleTV and combine it with a retina iMac... and you get a 4K smart TV. With iOS derived apps of some type?   * Terminals... I've always wanted to buy ONE Mac, and have 4 terminals. The terminals could use ARM chips.   None removes OSX. 
I don't think they'll transition the Mac, at least not yet. The mere rumour and capability of transitioning will keep Intel providing cheaper chips to Apple too.   On the other hand, I do think this can be looked at from the other angle, as an iPad with a keyboard. Call it the 'iBook'.   Touch screen, 64GB SSD, iOS, Retina Display, bundled with Pages, Numbers. Many apps - Email, Safari, Facebook, MS Office available. A 13" widescreen is the same height as a 9.7" iPad...
 Are we absolutely sure Sony didn't do this for publicity. Sony paid too much for a film that wasn't getting big audience approval ratings. The film is a comedy about murdering an oppressive government dictator. Reviews said it was average (with great moments), and it was up against the big hitter Christmas releases (Hobbit etc). Sony then get hacked with a message to not show the movie. They capitulate. There is a media circus about how the actual oppressive government...
I think the concept is great, but this doesn't quite get there. Good start.   All our needs are slightly different, but it seems the Apple watch is a) a sensor device b) a display device   Most of the attention is on the display of the Watch - but really I have no need of having both display and sensor in the same device.    If the real value of the device is in the sensor being on for long periods, then a soft, long-life band is useful (for me, I want it to...
PayPass etc is very common in Australia. Tap card against terminal and you've paid (if less than $100), enter pin if >$100.   If it works on PayPass/PayWave/ExpressPay/Europay - simply because it uses any of the NFC terminals and authenticates with the bank - then we naturally just need our banks to recognise the cards when used via the iPhone.   But an important question for the US .... why wouldn't it work at EVERY NFC terminal in the US? How can some retailers say...
 Same question here.I'd be happy to pay for 20GB, and let my iMac be my "master" copy (with everything) while the iCloud is used as a transfer and syncing mechanism. Or use iCloud as a syncing mechanism to my "master", while storing an optimised smaller version (especially for videos!). But I don't think that's their intention. And it would probably require a method to set which libraries I want synced - not as "clean".
 I'm trying to find out if the 6 plus handles low-light better than the 5. Probably need to wait for some hands on reviews. Plenty of articles saying it is supposed to be better, though they often say the 5S was better too. Anyone know?
I like the app. I wonder if I should try SaneBox, seems to be similar?, but sticking here for now.
