Simply Awesome. I have pretty impressive coverage almost everywhere I'm at (except in museums or other locations that might also have wifi), and now those locations can effectively keep good "signal". Combined with the HD Voice support (which AT&T and Verizon have still not offered for the past year, only now coming to areas where I don't live or work: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9248366/AT_T_to_activate_HD_Voice_over_4G_LTE_in_four_states_on_May_23 ).

 Easy fix:  Put your current iPhone in a Mophie or other battery-case that tricks the iPhone into thinking it's charging.  Bam - mobile always listening. Of course, the limitation for plug-in could be to prevent (either intentional or inadvertent) Glasshole syndrome - i.e., it's unlawful to tape someone without their express consent in many jurisdictions.
I'm sure the "google fridge" is an entirely Samsung thing just powered by Android. WhyTF would I ever want Google on my fridge? Maybe it'll be part of their competitor to AmazonFresh?
 Must be something in the water over in the Seattle metropolitan area. "Redmond start your copiers", anyone? 
Using the wifi smart plug sounds like a good idea for turning off the entire entertainment cabinet - I really don't record DVR entries during the night, and none watches TV after 9PM. Then it can all come on at 7AM so it stays on during the day. The iOS app to control would be nice so we could override as needed.
It'd be much nicer if Siri mentioned you had a text and possibly read it to you. I often use Siri to compose texts to my wife while driving to coordinate evening activities on my commute home.
If this were the case, it'd be a single or two vendors (possibly HTC), and definitely NOT Samsung. It could be a way for Apple to prop up one of the Android players and give that player incentive to take share away from the bigger, real threats. Combined with patent licensing, it could be a great way to push forward the AppleID-based ecosystem. Also it'd be a nice FU to Google.
 Do you realize the housing market is way overpriced for your average post-college or non-career worker?  Folks who have no possible way to buy an apartment and whose landlord never returns their calls likely number in the 10s of millions in the US.  These kind of units are perfect for those folks. Even our daughter's nanny has an iPhone.  It is really not a luxury device anymore.
My mom has an iPhone4 with iOS7.0x - it isn't that bad.  7.1 makes it even better.  Sometimes I swear people think that all the new features come for free, and no speed should ever be sacrificed ever even for massively older handsets while also ensuring up-to-date security patches and support for dozens of handsets, oh and snazzy UI glitz.  The rule of computing is, that everything is a tradeoff.
 You may be right but for the wrong reasons.  Most folks don't know or care about 7.1 because they're either on iOS6 and haven't still noticed the update, or they're on 7 and don't find it needs fixing.   Also there isn't the "new candy" promotion of a .0 release that brings all the neophiliacs rushing in.
