Agreed. A phone should be as small as possible. When I want to read the NY Times I use an iPad.
Men keep phones in their pockets. Make a big phablet for women- fine. Just don't get rid of the thin narrow phones as an option.
+1Life is too short to type 4 digits to access your phone 55 times a day. Maybe if I was the president, or a secret agent.. It would be a matter of national security if someone were to like, read my emails if they stole my phone.
2nd gen Nest user. These other devices that some think are competitors are like comparing an iPhone5 to an old blackberry. My nest is amazing. The iPhone app duplicating the nest screen couldn't be simpler. My house has a more uniform temperature thanks to the Nest intelligence. The Nest is perfect in every way.
Besides the loss of iDisk, it was nice to send a video or a photo gallery to someone and have it say "Made on a mac" at the bottom. Apple lost a lot of free advertising when they dropped the gallery, which was far better than any free gallery solutions to this day.
With another billion spent on iCloud, will Apple ever make it as useful as Mac.com was 10 years ago? Who do Apple users have to resort to using Dropbox, which seems to be the new "mac" standard among the Apple faithful that are my peers? Dropbox works just fine actually. Apple should just buy them and incorporate Dropbox into iCloud since the current iCloud features are all but useless to most users.
Ordered mine at 6am.
Went for the 27, maxed out with 3TB Fusion drive, top CPU and top video card.
Base RAM though as you always save a few hundred buying aftermarket and it doesn't void apple's service contracts. Found 32GB RAM for 144 on Newegg! I have never had nearly that much RAM before. Exciting stuff.
