They paid the price and lost many to Samsung as a result and their stock took a big hit and is now epoxied in the low 500's.
Thanks for the verbal diarrhea, not a word of which is accurate. Believing 4" is the ideal size, while also acknowledging internally that larger phones are selling, is not a contradiction in any way whatsoever.

Never going to happen, nor should it. The market for that product is insanely small. 17" is barely considered "mobile". The retina MBP makes this redundant. Stop holding your breath.

You know it's under warranty, right? Or are you just planning on throwing it out and waiting for the "lunch" of a new model? Also, that's likely a software issue.

The market has "shifted" because other companies ONLY offer their flagship devices in bigger sizes. Consumers have never had a choice. The smaller models are shitty, crippled low-end versions. So it goes both ways- consumers don't have the option of a large device with Apple, but they only don't get the option of a high-end smaller device with anyone else. All that you will see pushed, advertised, and recommended form Samsung, etc. are the monster phones. Stop pretending it has anything to do with consumers demanding a bigger size.
