 Heh, sounds like you lost some money on Apple with that rant!  I lost some too but the price has been making a slow comeback. I kind of agree that Apple has been milking the iPhone and iPad a bit and haven't been very aggressive with changing the design, adding features, or coming out with new products.  It hasn't hurt them much (yet), but they're probably going to have to do something big this year or next year to stay on top or else the slow decline will continue.
No thanks, I don't want my phone listening to me and watching me to determine my mood so it can serve me ads.  This sounds like something Google would do.  I can imagine if this article was about Google, people here would be having a field day with it.
Even if your Applecare has expired, I would bring it in anyway. They have fixed mine free before for things like this when it was 4 years old.
 Then that company would be just another competing product, that's the problem. What needs to happen is a high quality, low cost, no license fee, secure standard needs to be developed for all of the products to inter-operate.  Then that standard has to be backed by a company that can put out high quality products to lead the industry and convince other companies to also use the standard. This also applies to many other areas like smartphone - car integration, smartphone -...
And yet you still can't rename a file or folder.  They put all this work in a redesign and you can't do something so simple.
 I don't see why people are clamoring for huge screen phones.  A smartphone is meant to be portable and on the go with you where ever you are.  Save the tablet or laptop for tasks that need a big screen.  I would rather see them make the iPhone more versatile  with things like IR blaster, more battery life, stronger more consistent internet access, waterproof, more accurate sensors, and solid unbreakable/unsnoppable encryption for users who can handle strong passwords or a...
If you're buying based on numbers on a spec sheet.... go for it.  Feel free to not report back on your experiences.  I think you'll be right at home on the Android message boards where you can spend all day posting your awesome benchmark scores.
These devices that are locked down and have proprietary code that can be used to hide the actual GPU/CPU performance characteristics are the opposite of freedom.  If only those sheeple would use Android phones which are completely open source and nothing can be hidden from the user.      Oh Wait...
This just sounds like a way to push targeted advertisements to your phone while you're trying to watch a game.
 That's an interesting point.  I don't think there is a consensus yet on the iPhone 5 vs iPhone 5C.  From what I can see the 5C has the same specs but has the plastic case vs metal case.  So there is something to be said that you're getting less than in previous years where the previous gen phone was $100 less.
