Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome iPhone 6:
I find Dvorak somewhat inspirational, much like Rush Limbaugh, Rob Enderle, Paul Thurrot, et al: a third-rate intellect who somehow managed to indelibly affix himself to an income stream without resort to skill, fitness, or any other aptitude, and whose only principle is "get paid FIRST". The poster child for scrapped expectations...your idiocracy at work.... Thank you, as always, Daniel - your clarity and focus and sense of history are more than welcome!
Years ago on this very site, I imagined a 'headless' Mac that used a wirelessly-connected tablet as its screen. (I was 'The Steve Jobs Mind-Meld' back then, I think)   There have been apps that allow a certain amount on desktop activity via iPhone, but a move like the one I just described has not happened;  the A7 forward may well change that, and since the only reason my Mac can't run 10.7 + is it's a 32-bit processor, we may se a complete shuffling of the Apple product...
There's the nub:  30-pin is dead, long live Lightning!  THIS is the new $99/free phone, no more 4s of any kind.   No iPhone 5SRV, either.  iPhone 6, now w/ LiquidMetal and the NEXT next-gen chipset, at the usual price-points (but maybe the base will move to 32/64/128gb, w/ 16gb in the 5c).
AGAIN with the "larger iPhone display" schtick?   Have you SEEN those larger-screen monstrosities? Only FASHION VICTIMS need apply!   Need a bigger screen?  Get an iPad.
I think differently on it:  WHY should a "completely new, less expensive model" have a screen at all?   I image a stereo BT headset with advanced voice control - and the ability to piggyback off the cellular chip in your iPad to make calls....   The next big battleground is going to be over carrier rates, you know - and this would be a shot OVER the bow & straight into the magazine.
'Cause Apple disabled / gave away all my Apple email addresses.   The ones I've been using, that is.  While I was using them.   I don't even particularly WANT a gmail address - just the only one left to me.
This in do way explains the loss of dot-mac-to-icloud conversion accounts. No explanation, no-one to contact, to help, just the loss of my original thirteen-year old PRIMARY iTools/.mac/.me email account - and no way to let anyone who has it know. Bad show. Bad form. Bad business
  No, and thank you for that careful, critical attempt at a summary...   If you listen just a little more closely, you might be able to tell that he's complaining about being deprived of services thru no technical requirement of hardware or software.   The bundle, in effect, has been shuffled: still the same services offered, but with a gatekeeper interposed.  Kinda like the way that Microsoft first created FUD (nothing's wrong, but if you find NotOurDOS installed, stop...
People don't appreciate the appeal of the iPad until they've shown it to a non-tech-savvy elder. I spent 20 minutes showing off the 1st-gen to an 80-year-old great-grandfather whose grand-kids were desperate to get him finally online. Anyway, he was completely entranced: he IMMEDIATELY got the comparison of the touch interface to finger-painting, was quickly playing around with confidence, and left hugging his new prize, his family beaming around him. He is now...
