Oh believe me... he would have been punched. No doubt he would assume that because I'm borderline legally blind that I cannot see him well enough to land a punch. I would very much enjoy him experiencing the error of that assumption. 
You are practically begging the universe to leave you blind, deaf, and paralyzed.  Obviously if you take two people who are equivalent in all ways, except that one has a disability, the person lacking the disability is going to be more able to do some things than the disabled person. I suppose that is your brilliant point. Good for you Einstein -- I hope you break your arm patting yourself on the back.  Despite your ignorance, the point of the ADA is NOT to force employers...
I actually am borderline legally blind. Apple's products have made the world much more easy to access for me. it is one of many reasons why I'm a loyal Apple customer.  But I don't know the ins and outs of the law well enough to understand how NFB has a basis for a lawsuit here.  Also, on the face of it, it seems unfair to target Apple rather than other firms that have done far less than Apple for accessibility.  edit -- another thought that just occurred to me is that...
I don't know what laws are in play here. But I would think that if Apple has to do this, then every other company that sells commercial software would have to do it. And so far as I know, that's not the case.  I wonder if the NFB knows their lawsuit threat is bs, but is just trying to use public pressure on Apple. If so, I think that's a pretty bad strategy. 
What law has apple violated here? Why not sue the app maker? Why not sue google? I'm all for greater accessibility, but I don't quite understand this story...
 dude -- lighten up. No, I was not being sarcastic. But what I was saying is not equivalent to the other things you mention. Everything I said is a fact: 1. Far more women carry purses than men. That's a fact.2. Men's pants are far more likely to have a front pocket. That's a fact.3. Women tend to have difficulty finding things in their purse. That's also a fact. And it's not because they are women. I have a hard time finding things in my backpack, which is why I often put...
A few thoughts:   1. one-handed use is nice, but there are clearly tradeoffs. I can understand that some users might want to sacrifice one handed use for the benefits of a larger device. I think it's fine that those users are able to buy an iPhone that better suits their needs.    2. I also hope we get a 4" iPhone 6, and I hope it's not crippled somehow. Apple should not impose artificial tradeoffs between devices.    3. I recognize that there may legitimately be...
I think it makes a lot of sense to move away from numbered naming of iPhones to having a portfolio of iPhones with consistent names.    If they want to be consistent-ish with other product lines would call the 5.5" the iPhone Pro, the 4.7" the iPhone Air, and the 4" the iPhone Mini.    They could also add a 12" iPad and have that be the iPad Pro. Then they really would have consistent naming between those two product lines. 
I'm thinking it's not the size of the woman --it's the size of her purse. The women I know are always losing things, including phones, in their purse. I think the 5.5" iPhone is appealing because it will be easier to find.  On a related note -- I want a phone that can fit in my jeans pocket. But women almost never have pockets, so that's not an issue for them. They carry things in their purse. It all comes back to that darned purse. I'll bet 3/4 of those 5.5" iPhones go to...
And Apple $$, which appear to be helping Samsung narrow the gap with Intel. It typically takes Intel about 18 to 24 months to move from one process to the next (for example, the first 22nm processor from Intel was put on sale in April 2012, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/22_nanometer and 14nm processors have yet to be sold, making this an unusually long time between processes for Intel). Meanwhile, Apple/Samsung took just 12 months to make the transitions between 45 nm and...
