  While I don't mind that with the iPod Nano and Shuffle (though the Shuffle should get the better headphones by now) they really should at a minimum do a software feature update for the Nano like they did for 6th gen. If the Nano update reflected the style of iOS7 that would be pretty cool. Also the Touch should be bumped. The internals match the 4S and should be bumped. Apple makes great products but they can't retain a premium brand if they are nickle and diming in...
I'm loving this color. When I got my iPhone 5, I just wasn't feeling the black color on the aluminium for it so I went with white for the first time. I have a black iPod 7th gen and this color looks far, far better. However I did lighten the black to something close to this with a frosted case.   Either way it is an excellent choice.
 I disagree strongly. There is a large difference in value proposition between the 5C and the 5S. In fact most people have said that for the $100 price difference, they can't imagine anyone ever wanting to buy a 5C. Also there is still plenty of money out there to grab, specifically from Samsung who happens to have basically the other half of the smartphone profits in the industry. Suppose as a quick example that Apple didn't make a cent on the 5C. If it keeps Samsung from...
 I'm going to disagree with you and understand up front that there have already been a few hundred posts on these topics across multiple threads. I know you're not the only person feeling this way, you just happened to be the post where I managed to jump in early in a thread rather than 200 posts into the discussion. Apple really needs the 5C to be a low cost phone FOR THEM and it is necessary for it to be at about $400 to help stop their marketshare from shrinking to the...
 The point of the treaties and the U.N. is to have the world agree that someone is a warmonger or at least a pretty decent size group who runs the proposal through the U.N. gets typical resistance and then moves on after having exhausted other measures. The U.S. has been the world's cop for far too long. Perhaps when a few more things get busted, broken and stolen, they will wise up and grow up.
  I'm fully aware of the rules of war. However the answer isn't that the president of one country gets his coalition of no one, including not even support within the country, and takes action. Bush took his desires before the U.N. What has Obama done? Bush couldn't get the support he wanted at the U.N. and thus took a coaltion of countries that did support him and took action. Obama doesn't even have a coalition of countries willing to support his actions. A treaty cannot...
  Wasn't this the exact reasoning of those who endorsed Iraq when Colin Powell was talking about weapons of mass destruction at the U.N.? That turned out to be misguided. How do we make sure we aren't equally misguided this time? Why is it our job to make sure that when two factions within the same country are killiing each other, be it with conventional or chemical weapons, that they do it in a manner we approve?
 It's almost like they are innovating and improving over other competitors in this area.  I don't know if they will offer a software update. I have the Kindle Touch 3G which I really enjoy and I felt lucky that they upgraded the software experience to match that of the new Paperwhite. The goodwill generated by such actions is worth more than any advertising campaign and even when a company ends up competing against themselves it still must be cheaper than competing against...
  I don't see that being a problem at all. First Apple has turned to Nike for all their fitness tracking needs and I'd bet they'd be willing to continue to do that here. So the section of the iWatch that tracks all your fitness stats is Nike+. Nike charges $169 for a GPS watch and that is actually relatively cheap for what they go for in terms of price. My point is can Apple take what Nike offers, and what others already charge more for and add $30 worth of Apple value to...
  I don't think Apple will imagine it like a shrunken down and terrible attempt at a smartphone that straps to your wrist. I think it will be more like an accessory that does things your iPhone cannot do at all or cannot do without the assistance of this accessory. Especially for the fitness crowd, $200 is cheap.   We also have a world where there are an increasing array of photographers and videographers all using Apple products.   So imagine it isn't a crappy attempt at...
