True, but I've tried typing on an iPod touch 5th gen lying flat (no case) and it rocks. It's a minor annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless. And I'm not likely the only person who'd think that. I agree with you though, and I can't get "worked up" about it until I actually see it and then use it. Of course I'm still getting it on release day. And I'm sure it won't be a dealbreaker for me. :-)
Being honest, here - I don't care for the protruding lens on the iPod, really hoping it isn't on the iPhone 6. I'm sure the optics will be stellar...but personally, I don't use a case and my iPhone sits flat on my desk. I type on it without picking it up. Can't do that with a protruding lens.
I guess that could be argued about either side. (Not Apple vs Blackberry, obviously). I don't have a 'side' on the Ferguson issue. I'll only say that if it were me, I couldn't stay out all night looting and burning buildings down. I have a little thing called a job that I go to 5-6 days per week. Gets in the way of my protesting.
