The numbers are in.    HUGE results.
Apple doesn't cater to the lower ends of the market where Android saturates the channel with cheapo options. Apple is focused on making money. And additionally, Apple owns the US, the market with the most star power in terms of tech.   A substantial chunk of the market doesn't go in for the incremental "s" bump either, but waits for the next full revision. 
"Fingerprint is necessary for a star model," Kuo writes. "Because Apple's iPhone 5S and HTC's One Max have fingerprint, S5 the star model can't lack the function even [if] the solution (area type same as iPhone 5S's provided by Validity) is not as mature as iPhone 5S's."   This is the area where the competition has always been outclassed by Apple.    You don't bolt on an inferior implementation just to say that you've got it as well. 
You still need a wall adapter, Mac, or car adapter in which to plug it in. It's just smaller and more convenient than a cable, but the same requirements remain. Not really blown away by this.
No shit, Tony. And what a ridiculous statement to make.

You know what would be a revolution? SELF-MOTIVATED KIDS. It isn't the teacher's job make the student give a damn. If you care about what you're doing you'll get a lot more out of it. Whether you've got iPads or books or anything else. And all that happens at home. It begins with the parents.
And for $3.2 . . . BILLION??   Really?   Something just feels way off about the way companies (for sale, ready for acquisition?) are valued. 
If Apple actually wanted them, Nest would have been theirs. I'm pretty sure Tim and co. know exactly what to acquire and exactly when to do it. Gotta love the rookies around here that still think Apple Apple *knows* a company, sees what they do, doesn't care to buy them for months/years, and then suddenly slaps their forehead outta the clear blue sky when they're acquired by someone else. Companies are bought and sold every damn day. Apple - OF ALL TECH COMPANIES -...
