My 6's camera (like many others) does not protrude b/c i put a case on the phone. It's almost flush.  
Agreed - was worried when I bought one but it's natural now and doesn't seem huge at all.  They key is not to buy a gargantuan case - the Apple leather case is pretty much perfect. 
Well, if Apple makes it easier for users to sign up for Spotify directly on iOS then that's the "finder's commission" that Apple gets.   More power to spottily to make it easier to sign up (and enter CC details, etc) on their website.     Many, many people simply prefer using the App Store and just pressing their finger on Touch ID. Maybe enough to justify the 30% cut. 
When Apple buys out the USGovt, that's what they'll rebrand it to.

Ha, Fail upwards, maybe just like "Dubya" the CEO can run for US president next? 2016 just might get more interesting!
TouchID seems amazing to me. Elegant, technically tight/secure, and seemingly uncopyable. Defintely something that highly leverages Apple's strengths (iOS sandboxed security model, App Store only binaries, secure element on chip... I am of the understanding that TouchID may simply not even be possible for other vendors, and may not even make sense for Apple on the Mac (walled garden app-store only devices aren't as appealing for the desktop due to all the legacy/external...
