That $1099 price now seems very wise since they can discount it to a far more reasonable price that hits the sweet spot and also gives people the idea they are saving over a $100. 
Yes, every room in my house has a ceiling fan. The ceiling fan can work very well in concert with the window fan or AC when it is simply too hot to save energy. That air circulation helps me keep the thermostat at 76 instead of around 71 without it. 
How so? I lived in Tokyo and it was an option there and I lived in a large apartment building with a tiny balcony. Practically no one uses clothes dryers in Japan because the energy cost is so high. Unless you are saying many people don't have even a balcony. The vast majority of Americans have a yard or at least a balcony or deck to dry clothes if they wanted so I wasn't simply addressing my comments to people that live in tall concrete coffins in NYC with no balcony or...
If most Americans would just do 2 very simple things it would save them a ton on energy bills and also help the environment. One is simply air dry your clothes instead of using a dryer. Not only is it better on your wallet and the environment, it is also far better on your clothes. I have clothing decades old that still practically look brand new because they have never been inside a dryer. Every once in a while I will put them in dryer for just a few minutes to remove...
Very true about the ability to carry it inside. But personally I would go with a gas scooter or an electric scooter if I was looking for a bicycle alternative. You can get a 49cc for around $300 that will give you about 20 miles or more on one tank. But like you pointed out you would need a safe place to secure it while you are inside work or shopping. But it is great to have so many cool options now for any taste or budget. 
That would scare me to death having to rely on a remote for steering and stopping. I would think something like this with the same electric battery would not only be safer but would sell far more. No remote just steer, brake, and accelerate from handlebars.    Edit: I understand why they don't. There is already a very large electric scooter market that is saturated. I used to have one many years ago myself and got a bit nostalgic. I might buy a new one just for fun. They...
 I don't see Apple ever moving the home button but I don't think they are necessarily tied to a circular design at the current size. They could possibly shave a few millimeters by giving it or more oblong shape. Aside from just being ugly, those really large bezel areas in the mockup will make the iPhone a lot taller than any other 4.7" phone and taller even than the 5.2" LG G2. Perhaps that is intentional since that might allow more interior space for components. The top...
 I agree and have no idea why some people think Apple would not reduce the top bezel based on symmetry alone. When you look at the pictures I posted just above it is really hard to think the iPhone just doesn't look as nice as those other phones from the front.  That bezel area at the top could easily be made much slimmer by moving things around. Apple can't really do much about the bottom bezel due to the home button, but silly to think they could not shrink the top due...
These pictures give a good comparison of the size.      
Is there any information about the measurements of the bezel on these 2 mockups? It is hard to gauge from just the photo but I am curious what the measurement is from the edge of the screen to the bottom and also on top. How many cm is the 5s for comparison? Is the bezel area for the iPhone 5 the same as the 4s since that might give a hint.   If it remains the same distance as the 5s then the bezel will actually appear smaller with much larger displays than a 4" screen....
