 You did see the part about lengths up to 100m, right?
 Actually, they've punted on this again and again and again. Instead of telling developers to dynamically resize layouts and assets, they've done the "retina" pixel-doubling dance on the iPhone, the iPad, and the MacBook Pro. Apple needs to take a deep breath and tell its WWDC attendees, 'THIS is the year of resolution independence. Do it now, update your apps this one time, and you'll be good on all Apple devices and screens going forward."
Phil, it's not a true alias in the tradition sense of the word. You create the "alias" on the fly and you can have as many of them as you wish.   Google will ignore anything after the plus and before the at sign, so you can make up anything you want when you're entering an email on a site.    myemail+spam@gmail.com myemail+junk@gmail.com myemail+lists@gmail.com myemail+work@gmail.com myemail+twitter@gmail.com
A semi-easy way to do the same thing with gmail is to use their plus sign system. If your email address is myemail@gmail.com, you can give one site an email address like myemail amazon@gmail.com and another myemail iffy@gmail.com. All of them are aliases to the same account. If the "iffy" account starts sending spam, you can setup a gmail filter to zap it.
 And again, how is it baffling that other people might have other needs, wants, and desires? No one is saying that Apple should take their one and only iPhone and make it into an iNote. But Apple could design a newer, larger phone and sell it in addition to the current size, just as they did with the iPod nano, shuffle, mini, classic, and touch. Each found its own niche and set of users, and no one with a nano was going around telling classic owners that a device with that...
Once again, a bunch of people post about how they use their phones, while at the same time extrapolating that usage out to the point where they automatically assume that everyone else uses it in exactly the same way, and for the same reasons.   One comment above makes that claim that a larger screen is "easier on the eyes". (Albeit a bit tongue-in-cheek.)   Regardless, I don't want a bigger phone in order to make the text size bigger, I want a bigger phone in order to...
 Cute, and misses the point. Obviously different people have different wants and needs, otherwise there wouldn't be an iPhone, iPad mini, and iPad Air. We'd still just have an iPhone. As such, Apple needs to have a smaller iPhone, a larger iPhone, and various sizes of tablets, just like they had iPod nanos, minis, Classics, and the Touch. 
Want a bigger phone? Yes, a 5" iPhone would be great, but why not go whole hog and add FULL cellular capabilities to the iPad mini? Talk about a "phablet!"
 You have a point in that people are in fact paying to buy iPhones. Frood, however, does have a point, in that while many people are buying phones with upgrades, many (including me) think Apple is overcharging for storage. That doesn't stop us from buying, but it doesn't make us all that happy with Apple, either. Apple should drop the upgrade price, because $100-$200 over the base price of the phone is more than a little ridiculous. You can buy a name brand 64GB SD card,...
 Ah, no. Did you see this from another article? "Wireless customers who bring their own device, buy a handset without a subsidy, or have their current contract expire will see their monthly data share bill drop by an average of $15 per month, AT&T announced on Thursday." They're dropping current prices, then adding a 24-month payment plan on top for subsidized phones. Obviously the scheme is a win for AT&T, but it's not the total ripoff you make it out to be.
