Day traders, and high speed trading systems on algorithms who start and end the day with no shareholdings produce nothing but pure profit (money pick-pocketed from others).

The design improves significantly on the current model without introducing many tradeoffs (except for a small increase in height).
Maintaining the same width as the iPhone 5S avoids the main drawback of...
