no, no! this not innovation! Apple can no longer innovate - the analysts all say so. this is just ... fooling around. wifi never craps out! i say so!
OMG - gadget porn! hubba-hubba!
sure, if the 5c/5s first weekend sales don't at least match last year's, that will be a bad sign for real. if your "latest and greatest" drops off from the previous model (all other things being equal) that is not good.   plus with two new models this time and an expanded global launch, that alone should boost initial sales.   and there is a lot of enthusiasm about the 5s. it's gotten mostly 4/5 star reviews, except for a few nagging nabobs of negativism. Touch ID in...
 i think this is a pretty good indicator for the proportion of iOS users who are genuine "early adopters." more than i thought.
 you're all forgetting that next year Apple will likely knock the 5c price down another $100 and still be able to maintain it's profit margins. at that point Apple may also finally launch a larger screen version of the 5c at the previous price. and as long as Touch ID - clearly iOS' new "killer" feature - is not matched by other OEM's, Apple is not going to drop the price of its top model at all. so the 5s will be taken off the market next year like the 5 is being...
 you're on the right track. but ... how many of the older models of iOS and Android phones/tablets included in those grand totals are still actually in use? many have have been thrown out by now or are laying insider a drawer in someone's house. the survival/resale/resue rate of iOS products has to be significant higher than the Android stuff too.
 of course SS will almost duplicate the Apple design verbatim ASAP. they figure any patent lawsuit will take years, and by then it won't matter anyway - they'll finally have their own design ready. that's how they do business.
 all the droid fan people are saying, so what, no big deal, it's coming soon to android too, ain't that hard to do, no problem, etc. etc. ... it will be very interesting to see what actually happens, and when. same goes for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. you KNOW that as of today every major OEM in the world is in a total panic to get one of their own ASAP - it's the 5s' "killer" feature. sales of high end Android phones are going to plummet until they catch up. it will...
mark prigg at the London Evening Standard is also smitten by the 5s: "This is, without doubt, the best smartphone ever made - and puts Apple squarely at the top of the industry."   certainly overall the reviews are very very good, the best i can recall for any model iPhone.   and diehard Apple fans are already starting to camp out at the stores. since rumors say the 5s supply may be very limited at first, there could be record number of them by Thursday night. 
ok, looking at the reviews i can see already the dog lovers of the world love the new 5s slow mo. and you know the unbearably cute kittens can't be far behind. get ready for an eternal avalanche of 10 second pet clips in your inbox. thank god babies already move slow.
