I wish Apple would just cut off analysts like Gene Munster. I mean, cut him off the earnings calls and all interviews. It obviously can't happen, but if Apple is willing to give him their time during calls to answer his questions, then at the very least he should take Apple at it's word instead of trying to fit their statement as some poor excuse for his awful analysis of the sales numbers. You lost what integrity you had, instead of just saying 'I must have missed...
"implies a message from management that the company is back on track"   Wake up. The company was never off track. The message is that you all stink at trying to figure out what Apple is up to and consistently underestimate them. The only think off-track is the share price.
Do the phones that are traded in just get refurbished and resold? How big the second hand market?
Would they really launch in more countries than the 5 if inventory was so low? 
 Another product concept taken from Apple when Eric Schmidt was on Apple's board
Was going to say it looks pretty good, but only because if a Dyson and a black iPhone 5 went drinking together, this would be their lovechild.
Lets not forget a major push into gaming when they previewed the controller attachments for the iphone/touch. That will drive lots of new revenue especially with some updates to an AppleTV.
Gimme a break  
I'm not saying it shouldn't be done (my guest account is used all the time on my N7) or that they can't figure it out, but it's certainly not "That is no more difficult or challenging that setting up the passcode lock." there are a lot more things to consider and do. You were trivializing it to something simple when it is not. Yes, iOS is a variant of OSX, but you don't necessarily do what desktops do on a mobile platform.
So draw a box on the login screen for another user and voila! Done!   Consider how to restrict or grant access to data/apps on the same device between users? Or can you when you switch, do you actually logout and shutdown or suspend programs or keep them running in the background? How do you determine who gets what storage space? It's certainly not a simple thing to do.
