I'm intrigued more by this Apple TV upgrade than the upcoming iPhone one. I'm still hoping it will incorporate an A9 rather than an A8 though. If it does we might just receive PS3 level graphics after all...I mean if the new iPhones and maybe the new iPads are getting the A9, why not Apple TV too...they're all being released concurrently as new products anyway. Mind you according to the rumour mill, Apple has been sitting on this new ATV design for a while now, which if...
This is annoying! Its about time Apple drop the 16GB model. Its a ridiculously small capacity nowadays, and I don't buy this 'its only for business clients' BS! I currently own a 32GB 5S and its barely enough for my needs, and I'm not a data hog! Only Apple continues with this meagre capacity in the high-end smartphone market, probably because they can, as there's no alternative for iOS users unless their willing to switch loyalties to Android, which understandably they...
That's the one I got.
I still find it funny that people in an audience at say a concert...still use flash when trying to take photos of a stage that is dozens of metres away. All they're doing is lighting up the back of the heads of the people in front of them! Lol
And so it begins...
Once I heard about the hidden 'diagnostics' port I had a feeling Apple would use it to take the route of add-on specialised straps for various purposes. This was a good future-proofing move on Apple's part.
The text is printed not engraved, of course its going to wear off over time. Sooner with some than others depending on activity. Also the Space-Grey anodising might be effecting the 'stickiness' of the text and logo. This really is a non-issue! 
Disappointing, what happened to the days when every new A-series SoC was twice as powerful as the generation before? And while multi-core scores aren't everything the Samsung part absolutely thrashes the A9 and is only slightly slower than the A9X. In fact the A9-series multi-core performance is weaker than most of the candidates here. The Exynos M1 seems to be the powerhouse of current SoC's in multi-core the Tegra in single-core.I wonder if Qualcomm's upcoming 820 will...
I actually like the round format of this smartwatch. I wish Apple had chosen to go with this more watch-like shape with its design, it would of made it more unique and interesting. The Gear S2 will probably use that touch-bezel control design Samsung introduced a little while back. I'm an Apple fanboy but I prefer the look of this design to that of the Apple Watch. Maybe with future generations Apple will also introduce a round design. The classic Swiss and German luxury...
This iPad/Mac upgrade cycle comparison. I don't think is appropriate. Because...from what I understand while Mac sales continue to be strong and grow, iPad sales are shrinking considerably. So I'd imagine from Apple's point of view there's less of a business case for annual iPad upgrades as there is for the Mac ones.
