Wow, this is the first time is a while that AAPL hasn't lost 10% in the days after a major announcement (of course it always recovers, like after the recent iPhone announcement). It tried yesterday (was briefly down a couple buck during the keynote), but the hits just kept coming yesterday. My only disappointments were lack of TouchID, which I suspect is a supply issue, and mostly the lack of a new cinema display (which would be low volume, but still). Seriously, who's...
Who says a delayed mini release wasn't the plan all along. Apple certainly never declared any intention to release both a new iPad and mini at the same time. Last year was a first, and arguably the minor iPad 4 update was only intended to get the new connector out. It's just silly for analysts to generalise from that one event.   In the past, Apple *often* released their premium devices (like a MacBook Pro) before the more budget products (like iBooks, remember those...
 Well, while I agree that this is bad luck for Apple, it seems to me like a pretty clear and fundamental principle of German patent law (i.e. apply for patent before public disclosure) ... to dismiss it as a technicality is a bit much (but I know what you meant). It's not clear the court had any other choice in its decision, given that's the law. Apple has been a multinational for years, and should really know the rules of the game outside of the US.
The 5s just has so much more, and the price difference in negligible compared to the total cost of ownership (initial fee plus 24xMonthly rate). Having said that, the plastic case is actually a big feature IMHO. I was blown away by the quality of this (as nice as, but different from, the metal version), and if it wasn't for the rather feminine colors, I could be tempted. The 5c just has a really nice feel. A 5s in a black 5c case would sell well, I think. I guess...
I have to say, I was blown away by the high-quality feel of the 5c. I'd still get the 5c (finger print, speed, sensors, & weight) ... but I can see the 5c being a great seller despite the slightly higher than "expected" cost. Wonder when we'll get some accurate sales figures?
 It feels like they have an array of about 7 mac minis serving the iOS update to the entire globe. 
Right, thanks  ... downloading it now!
Hmmm ... isn't today the 18th? So where is iOS 7? It should have been released hours ago, an that's assuming California time!
Nobody cares about "on contract" price anymore, even the US is moving to separate phone/contract models slowly.    But given the dreadful price of the 5C, it's good they kept the 4S.
Wow, 5C (16GB) is €599, 5S (16GB) is €699. 5S is pretty normal, and there lot's to like about the update. But Apple needs to shave €100 off the 5C *fast*. Stock is falling fast, and for once I can actually see why :-(  ... who would buy the 5C, with all the 5S offers at only 100 more?
