    AirPower? ROFL. Seriously who thinks up these names?
    What would you call it, marketing genius?
    Wireless charging. 
    Nothing prevents you from calling it that. Just as nothing prevents you calling it the Apple wireless earbuds ('AirPods'), Apple wireless stylus ('Pencil'), Apple wireless mouse ('Magic Mouse'), etc.

    Sounds to me like silly complaining.

    For non-visor, probably not an issue. For a visor style, that's a bit more iffy. Depends on what percentage of the face needs to still be visible to work. They did show people wearing hats, glasses, and scarves etc., so I suppose there's a chance that you could raise the visor and still get it to work.

    I'm guessing the FaceID will be popular with law enforcement. Maybe that's a feature and not a bug.
    No different from law enforcement ordering you to unlock your phone by using TouchID. With FaceID, you can always look away, or close your eyes, the act (and consequences) of which would be no different than your refusing to place your finger on the TouchID button.

    In other words, it's not clear to me there's any qualitative difference between the two.

    I’m seeing techies on Twitter saying they’re not blown away by iPhone X.  So what exactly would blow them away? 
    Anything that Samsung or Google comes out with that doesn’t work.

    I still don't understand the vertical camera array. The only way it makes most sense is in landscape mode but in portrait mode the depth perception will be out of whack. There's a reason our eyes are side by side horizontally and not vertically.
    I hope that gets people to stop filming videos vertically. 
    a plot twist. Apple decided to end video-shot-vertically-curse once and for all.

    Airpower sounds pretty good. And you do need a brand name for features. That’s true particularly that Apple added new features to it that’s not (yet) part of the Qi standard.

    I don't know.  When I'm laying down, on my side, so my eyes are oriented vertically, I still have depth perception.  Don't you?

    Key feature of the iPhone X is the neural network processor. That's where the future is.

    Were you listening to the presentation? You need to have your eyes open for it to work. They can’t force you to do that. Besides, I just can’t understand what it is that some people are so concerned about with that. What are you planning to do that this would be a problem? Should we be reporting you to the FBI?

    So what happened to copper/bronze phone that everyone was comparing to the Zune? Or the one with the white bezel? I’ll bet any money these weren’t even real Apple models.

    I was thinking the same, but I can never open my iPhone with my gloves anyway. So if I have to stop anyway to take a glove off, I might as well type in my code.

    the presentation seemed a bit off today, lacking in something. 

    The X is good but maybe not as good as it could have been if they had gotten touchID to work. I actually think that the ARKit and the emotes will be big on both new devices. 
    They didn’t show letterboxing with video. Will be kind of strange to watch video with the camera notch there. Also no mention of the changes made to the status bar to accommodate the notch. They should have cut the game demos to give more time to the iPhone X segment.
    In the past, they’ve taken more time, like last year, when they thought they needed it. As they ended a bit short of 2 hours, they could have stuffed 5 more minutes into it if they felt they needed to.

    having said that, gaming is the biggest app category, by far, and has the most downloads, by far. Therefor, it deserves a large segment.

    How about what others could do with access to every detail about your life? Would you also say the Equifax hack is something no one should be concerned with unless they are a criminal? I'm guessing you wouldn't and yet my iPhone stores all the same data plus a shitload more than any credit bureau could ever have on file.

    Was expecting a carrier free version for the iPhone X.  Maybe could happen later.

    I think FaceID can be easily compromised by hard core criminals.
    Did you really think, or are you just saying it? As they said, no security is perfect, but this is pretty good. They even made a point of saying that it’s the best “consumer” technology, recognizing that governmental and large corporate systems, with their supervision of the site itself being a part of it, are more secure. Military installations that use fingerprint or iris recognition have two armed guards watching to make sure nobody does anything to cheat the system.

    I like the use of "what do you have to hide?" when a question about privacy comes up. Well played. And I'm not playing. Luck with that.

    The presentation said faceID works if you later adopt glasses. I'm guessing you'll need to remove sunglasses (much like you needed to remove gloves for touchID.) It would be cool if someone at AI can confirm from the demo area.

    I do concede that there is jurisprudence involving forcing individuals in custody to perform, and this is perhaps no different. 

    I trust Apple to get it right. Eventually. They have been proactive in protecting their customer's privacy. There was a rumor that iOS11 had a disabling feature for touchID - click it 5 times, and you need a passcode. But of course, you need to possess the iPhone (have it in your hand) to do that. Or hay - maybe you can quickly tell Siri: "Siri, passcode my iPhone." Ohhh...that would be cool.

    No. $999 for 64GB, and $1149 for 256Gb. Where did you come up with that number?
