 If Apple does go with the "new iPhone" naming instead of "iPhone 6" etc., then they'll only say "new iPhone" in marketing materials.  Just like with "the new iPad" circa 2012.  When referring to them internally, they may just go with the naming scheme for Macs.  As in "Retina, 15-inch, Late-2013."  The year would be the actual release year, not the "model year" like automobile makers do.
 Maybe.  It would get rid of that awkward "S" name suffix for the "tock" years.And it would avoid any possibility of a terrible name like "iPhone 5CS". But without model numbers, I think it will be necessary to refer to iPhone models by year.As in "the small 2014 iPhone" and "the big 2014 iPhone".  (Or "the 2014 iPhone Air" etc.)
Have one on order. Won't ship until the very end of November IIRC. (I wonder if it will charge an iPhone "6" fully...)
 Get used to it.  Apple is pretty good at bollocking "the industry."
 Or the backside inlays could be textured / colored glass.  As is the Magic Trackpad and as are all MacBook Pro trackpads.  I don't care either way.  No, the lens ring isn't pretty.  But no, it just isn't that important.And anybody who makes a big deal out of it just might be trolling.  Just maybe.

 Oh well.  Something to look forward to in next year's iPhone 6S maybe.
 But what does "the source" say about a circular Mac mini with solid sapphire enclosure?It would add stratospheric cachet to the currently glamour-challenged Mac mini.And it would reflect the brand new Apple headquarters building's avant-garde circular style.You heard it here first./s (???)
 Agree almost completely.  Just a minor comment about this sentence: "Too much money has been contractually tied down between the content providers and the pay TV carriers for Apple or anybody else to just swoop in and redistribute a full slate of programming for free or for a low cost." I'd be happy to pay a little more (but too much more) than I'm currently paying f-ing DirecTV if I could have a vastly better front-end to all of that content.  It's torture typing...
 Instead of banging their heads against the wall-of-Television-as-we-know-it, Apple is gradually building a better wall.  More and more icons appear in the Apple TV home screen, each one representing a brick moving from the old-TV wall to the Apple TV wall.
