Given that the Mini doesn't include a display and the CPU in the mini is updated far more frequently by Intel than the Xeon line, it is surprising Apple took this long to issue an update. With all the backlash against Windows 8 and HP even going so far as to bring back Windows 7 as an option citing "back by popular demand" the Mini is the perfect gateway computer to give disgruntled Windows 8 users a reason to check out OS X. Many of these unhappy Windows 8 users may...
What other company do you know where the stock will fall $14 on good news. Apple should be trading above $600 easily.
Although I agree with you that it is very unlikely that Apple would release an iPhone over 5" I disagree that a larger phone "gets too far away from being useful and purposeful" People talk about the importance of one handed operation but how many iPhone owners actually use two hands as much if not more as one handed operation when you are doing tasks that requires more than a quick glance. Years ago during  the number of portrait only mode apps outnumbered ones capable of...
 As a person that owns a current generation iPhone 5s as opposed to a 1st generation iPhone that is little more than a really old iPod stuck on iOS 3 I agree that a larger iPhones is needed and will be extremely popular. People that cannot afford a 5s or even 5c are not the target market for the iPhone in any case and they won't be the market for a larger iPhone 6.  Apple are not stupid and realize people like me decide to buy an iPhone because we love the hardware, iOS,...
I understand what you are saying but I disagree that Apple has not been innovative. They have introduced far more than simply lighter and faster. But I also understand what you are talking about. You seem to suggest that they need some entirely new product categories or something along the lines of adding apps to the Apple TV. You are looking for a new knockout punch type of product or feature. The thing about those type of products is they can take many years to develop...
I wonder if a move to metal might also be the end of removable batteries and SD cards.. Those are often cited as 2 major advantages over the HTC devices as well as iPhone. (at least by current Samsung owners) I doubt Samsung will include an iris scanner. Imagine the trouble people that wear glasses might have not to even mention sunglasses. It might also have trouble in the dark. Even if it works and they overcome those obstacles it simply is not nearly as convenient as...
Maybe in Indiana but cell phones aren't banned anywhere here that I know of. I think this company knows a lot more about their potential market than you. 
Not an iPhone story but I figured many would get a good laugh that Samsung's so called secure Knox software was compromised.    http://www.phonedog.com/2013/12/24/samsung-knox-security-software-reportedly-suffering-from-hole-that-could-allow-interception-of-data/
Another consideration is also to use your upgrade date to get a subsidy as soon as you possibly can. The reason for that is every day you don’t use your subsidy you are basically paying your carrier extra money without the benefit of a new phone. As soon as you get a new phone your upgrade counter rolls over which means only 20 months in my case until my next upgrade credit. So that also probably figured in his decision. Some people don’t have an iPhone 5s and apparently...
 Such anger and emotion over something that doesn’t effect you in the least. The apps that I use on Cydia are either free or paid just like the Apple app store. So the developers on Cydia get paid just like they do on the official store. What evidence do you have to suggest most people that JB are using pirated apps? If these apps or functions that they enable were available on a stock iPhone or in the app store then I would see no need to JB. But I like the added control...
