As an app developer I see nothing wrong with this. It will improve the platform for consumers, meaning a better platform for me to develop for. They should ban all ads except iAds while they are at it.
I'm feeling a little underwhelmed, and I'm an Apple fanboy. I don't want/need a longer iPhone, the 4s I have is the right size. I knew last year that the 4s would be an interim upgrade. I didn't expect iPhone5 to feel like an interim upgrade too though.
  Please try to keep a grip. If people outside of UK was are allowed access to the app, it wouldn't cost UK licence fee payers anything; and even if it did, so what. If you're unhappy about the licence stop watching live TV and stop paying the licence.
Personally I think the iPad mini is the iPhone/iPod. I see no reason for a mid-sized device.   What resolution would it be if all the devices are moving towards retina specs? 1024 x768 at a quarter of the physical screen area of an iPad3?    Yes AAPL stock will probably dip with profit taking after the new product announcements, but I'll be keeping mine long-term.   The longer Apple' dominance continues, the less the competition is... erm... competition. I...
In place of more cloud options I'd rather see more on-device options for speech to text/code. Most people don't have a network connection all the time.
  If you make a game and put it on the app store for sale at the cheapest paid price (non-free) then you can expect 100x more users to play your game than buy it. i.e. for every 1 person that buys it you can expect 100 to pirate and play it (can be seen easily from server -side high scores etc).
I'm struggling to see what's new?   For ages there's been apps/games that display one thing on the ipad and another via airplay e.g. Real Racing 2 HD
  I agree. I think the same applies to building ipad and iphone retina apps too (on a non-retina macbook pro as you have to downscale the simulator). My 1440 x 900 macbook pro is fine for developing iphone and ipad apps (non-retina) - the new retina macbook pro will be more than fine for making retina iphone & ipad apps. I'd argue it's ordinary non-power users that more likely need the extra working space of a non-retina mbp. Especially once third party apps take...
I think the problem is performance, graphics performance. An iMac with retina display would need a shed load of graphics processing power to shift the required number of pixels. The new MBP with retina has a resolution not much higher than my existing iMac (2560x1440). 
Looks like an awesome upgrade from my 1st intel gen mbp (6 yrs old?) I think iOS development might even be nicer on this than the iMac the extra res will definitely be a bonus when building apps for retina iPads
