 Yeah we've been super-foolish hanging onto 4S's this long. We almost went with 6 but delayed too long (lazy) and now it's too close to September.
 Point taken.  It's not great.  iOS6 was my last "favorite".  That O/S was like liquid.  So fluid and perfect it was like there WAS no O/S. With 7 began the occasional stuttering and "O/S-ness" that Apple usually tries to avoid. Right now some iPhone pics won't make it over to the iMac at home over Wi-Fi.  What's up with that?  Before and after yes.  And I don't know a way to "MAKE" them go over either.  If I must have them, I have to e-mail them to myself.
I respect the idea behind this post, but remember that Apple is already very generous here. My iPhone 4S runs iOS8, and may run iOS9, even if not all capabilities are there.How many any-other-smartphones as old as the 4S run the newest O/S release from their makers?  Probably very small %age. We have an Aluminum Macbook bought in early 2009, that upgraded to Yosemete! I was pleasantly surprised when it was able to run Mavericks!  It's an Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz with "maxxed"...
This is completely off topic, and a little absurd.   Leaving aside all logic, imagine a Gold digital crown could be ordered installed on an Aluminum or Stainless Steel model.   One would have a little touch of bling, but not $10,000 worth.   Nahhh.  Bad idea I guess.   It just popped into my head while looking at the watch picture in this article.   "What if someone just wanted a gold crown......"
 I feel this way too, that "we do it to ourselves". Flying commercial aviation is a pretty lousy experience as you all know.  Ever more-cramped seats, fees for everything, etc etc. Yet "we", and myself included, buy plane tickets based on a $2 difference in price. Where were the consumers (or myself) who said, "I use airline-X.  It's $75 more, but they treat you like human beings and that matters". Nope.  I helped create the problem by telling the airlines that lowest...
 Boy that's nutty.  Ever see the graphic that macdailynews puts up all the time with the "Android phones before iPhone", and "Android phones after iPhone"?  The one that shows the blatant rip-off of the touchscreen/UI/icons?Why would Steve be willing to go "Thermonuclear War" and spend "all of Apple's $40Bil to right this wrong" of the blatant theft that Eric Schmidt perpetrated from sitting on Apple's board, if no harm was done? So let's say you personally invent...
My thought is that Tim believes what Steve said, "A great product is its own reward."   With a few personal causes the exception (where he exerts influence), I think Tim is happy to sit back with a quiet smile and let the products be influential.
Wow NetMage beat me by literally seconds on this:   My joking thought was "this is why they worked so hard to get Mickey Mouse's movements in perfect sync across different watches".   Heh heh.   Tough call on such wasteful spending.  To me it's all about %ages. Maybe his family has given $10-Billion to help others, so the few million they blow doesn't impact that, and they'd still be considered hero's. Or they won't help anyone ever and they're thought to be "bad...
Quote: That would be a GREAT little "watch" face.  No data, no time, no complications.Just those offset, nested red circle-glows of HAL, and the metal trim ring (not the rectangle though). That ALONE would be worth $75 of the overall purchase price of the watch. Oops.  I bet I tripped some major nerd-detectors there.  Love those movies (I love 2010 also.  Oops, another trip...). Heh heh.
Hah!  I editted for that typo, but too slow!
