    Just exactly what time is 97:55?  And what time is -1:45?

    I have to laugh every time I read this remark - "Apple's "S" series iPhones have typically been refinements of the models immediately preceding them, and most of the rumors surrounding the "5S" have been in that vein."

    It pops up in almost every rumor article. Why do I laugh? Because Apple has had exactly one (1) phone that has used the letter 'S'. What kind of trend does ONE phone make? Get real.

    iPhone 3g to 3gS. iPhone 4 to 4S ...

    They aren't times of the day, they're hours and minutes. They could mean "we need an additional 97:55 man hours on this date".

    I find it offensive.

    I'm going to have to go with Rogifan on this one.  For this year anyway, NO WAY that the 5s will be delayed until Spring.


     


    For future years, I agree that the general PUBLIC PREFERS new models more frequently than once/year.


     


    But still, the (rumored) 5c and 5s in requiring the full iOS platform presupposes that the hardware is perfectly aligned with software releases.  And I think that the coordination of hardware with iOS releases in the past has been almost impeccable.  I can't see coordinating major iOS revisions/releases more frequently than once/year.  But maybe I'm just being short-sighted.  Who knows what new hardware (or platforms for that matter) will be in Apple's future.

    What mjtomlin said... or maybe it's an expression of available time-off hours for a given store/shift.  Negative indicating that day's allocation was overbooked..?

    I'm hoping that Apple does something with mobile payments. That sector really needs Apple's clout to get moving.

    @ Pedromartins-

    I hope you don't mind me saying but it sounds like you get offended rather easily.

    I find it offensive.

    Imagine spending your own hard earned money on a phone and then dropping it and having it break because easily offended people don't like you using a case.

    I find that to be even more offensive.

    Frankly, I couldn't care less how my phone looks. You see, I don't buy it for its appearance, I buy it for what it can do.

    Isn't it interesting that the Android shills accuse iPhone users of being all about status symbol - and then they launch into a rant like Pedro's. Who's the one who's all about image again?

    I wonder nobody's heard anything about this up until now. I wonder what they're going to talk about?

    That depends on where the price point is for the 5C and what features it has or doesn't have.

    I also think with the introduction of the next flagship model, Apple will unveil their take on "wearables" and they currently aren't ready for it.



     


    I believe the market (assuming you mean the investment community) is interested in both. The purpose of a lower cost model is to drive volume and marketshare, especially in places like China and India. The flagship's job is to solidify and protect margins.
