The insane thing is that even though Apple will smash all their sales records with this phone, they will also smash their ASP records since so many are opting for bigger capacities and the 6+
 All signs point to Samsung continuing on a downhill spiral this point forward, a least with premium phones. They peaked with the S4. While they were smugly mocking Apple and shitting out more plastic gimmicks, Apple was quietly working behind the scenes on game-changing hardware (touch ID, 64bit processing, motion processors, etc), software (healthkit, homekit, extensibility, massive improvements to iOS), and services (Apple Pay, etc), and now that the planets have...
When support for these new tentpole platforms mature (healthkit/homekit/watchkit/extensions) iOS will be untouchable as a platform. It will have all the traditional integration/security/reliability/privacy/ecosystem/appstore strengths, as well as extremely powerful yet regulated extensibility. 
 It was the fastest iOS update I've ever experienced. But thanks for coming out.  I'm glad Apple is moving more and more aspects in house. The more areas it controls, the better it controls its fate, and the better it can provide an ideal experience for its customers. We've seen this from everything from CPU customization, to maps, to geolocation services, to CDNs. Steve Jobs understood this, and so does Tim Cook. 
 Uh, hate to break it to you, but.. http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/mobile/mobile-phones/smartphones/SGH-I527ZKARWC But yeah I don't see Apple changing the current iPhone sizes for a very long time. I think with the 5.5, they went larger tat they were truly comfortable with, just to shut everyone the **** up, and to cover the market. But I look forward to Samsung increasing the size of their flagships to 7"+. 
What a fucking feat of engineering these phones (and all Apple products) are. Gonna head in a bit and lineup (already ordered my phone but will be fun to chat with some Apple fans)
 Seriously, I wonder what would happen if Apple converted their entire bank account to pennies and dumped it somewhere? Would probably sink a country. 
 No, noone has iOS8 yet, on an Apple focused website, especially since it was released to everyone in the world more than a day ago. And no, it sucks. I recommend iOS5, that was my favorite. 
You know, I think Woz is an attention-whore and hate linking to anything he says, but looks like he's finally "back on board" with Apple based on the iPhone 6:   http://bgr.com/2014/09/18/woz-explains-why-hes-dumping-all-his-android-phones-for-the-iphone-6/
 There's bound to be some initial bugs. iOS8 introduces a ton of massive under the hood changes, features, APIS, and services (3rd extensions, family sharing, iCloud Drive, healthkit, etc) . I'm not sure if Apple bit off more than it can chew at once, but I hope not.
