I have an iPad for that.
…I wouldn't presume to go to a Ferrari forum and tell them their opinions are laughable or stupid for wanting this or that feature added in the next model.
I don't recall ever doing that. I recall holding people back because we know nothing about what's actually IN the software or hardware, and I recall expressing my opinion on gimmicks, like inductive charging and widgets…
Apple will do what they feel is best for them and you seem foolish trying to explain how they got it wrong.
I'd go into the whole thing about how they can't just create anything (5 lb. phone, 640x480 screen, etc.) and expect customers to take it lying down, but you'd ignore that because I'm "not a customer".
Unlike you, I can afford an iPhone and data plan and if I like their next iPhone I will buy it and if I don't I will look elsewhere.
So using your financial status in your argument? What's the point of that? If I like a phone, I'll buy it. If not, I'll look elsewhere. Same with any Apple product. Same with any other product. The Apple TV, for example, doesn't do what I'd love for it to do, so I don't buy it. Presently, it's just one feature away from purchasing three or more. But I have no use for the device until it has that.

Don't let your whatifsmanship cloud our reality. We all share the same 5D branch of this tree. You want to live in a world where Apple doesn't exist and prove us all wrong? Figure out how to travel withward (that's a direction) 6-dimensionally. Then come back and show us that over there, "natural progression" actually happened. We won't care, because that doesn't matter to us, because Apple did it, despite everyone else having plenty of time to also do so, but go ahead.
