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.
The App store really needs to support upgrade pricing.
There will probably be a lot of places that simply won't accept it. Even now, many establishments want to see the card in order to verify that the embossed numbers match those on the mag stripe.   Too many criminal types already use a card reader/writer to put fraudulent numbers on an existing card.
"A keyboard cover would probably sell very well, but I think it would damage Apple's image and vision for the iPad more than it would be worth." Don't see why. Lot's of people have bought covers from Logitech and others in order to do heavier typing, writing, etc.. The difference is that the iPad is useful without the keyboard, which can easily be removed when it's not needed. The Surface? Not so much.
