There was plenty of pushback. You don't recall all of the complaints from customers about dropping signal? Apple actually has a support page dedicated to it:http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4389And here's the article about the 5C not meeting expectations. I didn't say he was disappointed in it.http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/01/27/tim-cook-admits-iphone-5c-share-lower-than-expected-says-demand-was-different-than-we-thought
I notice you left out the part of my quote that said the analysts were in agreement with Apple, which they were. You can't have it both ways. If the analysts were wrong, then so was Apple. If Apple was right, then so were the analysts.
Just because a product doesn't merit a recall doesn't mean that it was appropriately functional. Apple redesigned it to be more difficult to block the signal while gripping the phone. And yes the 5 was redesigned because Apple knew they could improve the design over the 4S, just like they were able to improve the design of the antenna from 4 to 4S.Regardless of how you want to spin Tim's comments, he said that the 5C did not meet expectations. The analysts also said it...
The antenna was redesigned for the 4S, the 5C did not meet expectations according to Tim Cook himself, and I don't recall an analyst saying that either iPad had failed after release. In fact I don't recall any analysts saying the iPad mini would fail before it was released although I do recall that for the original iPad.
 That makes no sense.  He didn't say anything about the accuracy of the analysts' conclusions themselves.  He pointed out the behavior of the members of this forum.
 Analysts get the same response even when they criticize Apple's decisions after the fact.
I want this too debut with advanced health monitoring capabilities, something beyond a pedometer and heart rate monitor. That would get me to wear a watch again. The Android Wear devices coming this year are stylish products (the round ones that haven't debuted yet anyway) but they don't make me want to bear the admittedly small burden of wearing a watch. The watch would also have to be Android-compatible, but I know that's a long shot.
Not if I get there first! :P
As someone who uses a Note 3, I can tell you it's not the thickness of the phone that impacts one-handed usability. Its the width. If this phone had no bezels around the screen it would become much more usable. If it was half as thick, it would still be just as difficult to use with one hand. That's not to say it's impossible to use with one hand. I do it all the time. Two hands is definitely easier though.
The pixel density required to eliminate most people's ability to distinguish pixelation in any way whatsoever is about 600 PPI. Being able to distinguish a pixel from other pixels is not the limit of human visual acuity thanks to the fact that a brain sits behind our eyes. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7743/the-pixel-density-race-and-its-technical-merits
