Most of this is embarrassing garbage. I do think Apple will come out w/a bigger iPhone in the next year. I expect it to sell alongside the 4" model. Make more people happy and sell more phones. It's win win for them.
But you probably won't spend nearly as much time admiring your smoke detector as you do your car. You probably also won't be driving it often. Cars are status symbols. Smoke detectors are not. Cars are driven and used daily. Smoke detectors are not. Your comparison is invalid.
While this is way overpriced for most people who require several, hopefully the wireless technology pushes the regulations to catch up to new tech. This will benefit all as other companies will be able to come out w/similar products c
I cannot believe this will be Apple's big upgrade for the year, especially in the mini. If it is, I'm afraid for the future. No none is waiting with baited breathe for a better camera. This will be a (relative) flop IF that's it.
Even Cook cited supply issues with the iMac and acknowledged is caused sales of iMacs to go way down. Apple doesn't need to keep supplies tight as they sell at a fixed price whether they have 1 million or 10 million units available.
