Apple has added functionality to the iPhone since it was introduced. It now has iWorks. I use mine to read lengthy documents on the go, as I don't want to carry multiple electronic devices around. Thus, increasing the size of the screen, while retaining the compact form as much as possible, now makes sense.
Obvious Prediction: iPads with Touch ID next year for everybody, not just Tim and a few of his co-workers!
The iPhone 5c will be part of the Apple lineup for years to come. It will eventually be the "free" phone, but for now Apple is able and should maximize their profit. As people upgrade, the iPhone 5c will become available has the "previously-owned" phone, assuming the plastic back wears well or is refurbishable or replaceable.
Maybe not. Apparently Apple still needs Samsung to fabricate the chips and would not want to alienate them any further. Also, apparently the NDA is just somewhat meaningless. We know that lawsuits take years, damages are difficult to prove and get reduced. While that is going on, the public become convinced that Apple just buys components from Samsung. Samsung ultimately wins market and mind share.
Facetime on a "watch" or small, thin and simple device that can also be to stuck on the dashboard, wheel, mirror or whatever via bluetooth will be a game changer. That makes "iWatch" a clever name. Apple needs to secure the rights to use "Dick Tracy" in their ads.
It's sometimes cold in San Francisco. Many locals would appreciate a perpetual fame in the center of the fountain. One could concoct some historic significants for the fire, given Ruth Asawa's recent passing.
I enjoy her works! This fountain was built to fit the steps. It needs to remain.
Although the design of this store is competent, the architecture is not up to caliber of the prior Apple cathedrals (New York, Santa Monica).
