 Yes, the price points of the main device (5S) I expected to remain unchanged. However, I was expecting a bump in storage to 32/64/128GB while keeping the same price. They've done that many times in the past. The current storage/price points have stayed the same for three generations now. For the 5C (a new device) I was expecting the base 5C 16GB (or 8GB) to take the place now occupied by the 4S at $0 on contract.  Thus, everything in my view is $100 too expensive, as the...
 I share your "meh" feeling, but I'm guessing it will take Apple some time to get TouchID working flawlessly before they implement new APIs in iOS 7.1 or 7.2 or even 8.  New APIs would allow third-parties to access the scanner for other uses.
 Considering you can sell your 5 for roughly the price it costs to get the new 5S, why wouldn't you sell it and have a newer phone? That said, this update is for all the people with 4S' and 4's and even 3GS'. And new customers. 
Don't feed the trolls, people. Just move along. Don't quote them, just ignore.

I am very underwhelmed.   Mostly because of the price points. Everything seems to be $100 too expensive.    The 5C should have been 16GB for $0 on contract (or $399 off) and the 5S should have started at 32GB, not 16GB.    And the 4S should have been axed. Are they at least updating it to Lightning?
 Quoted for truth.
Maybe we'll get "Find my Car" in iOS for the car.   Useful for this and for those pesky mall parking lots. And NSA. Shhh.
 That only works if they're using a mobile template, and not responsive layout. I don't know of a way to disable responsive layouts, as it's based on screen size, not the user agent.
 No problem. I wish Safari had a way to disable mobile environments by changing the user agent. They could bury it in Settings so only power users will enable it. However, with Responsive Layouts now the trend, there won't be a way to disable "mobile" views. Hopefully web designers are foresighted enough to only reformat content, not hide it willy-nilly.
