Sog, your post is idiotic. I don't know if you have the slightest clue about HIPPA and working with health data, but privacy is paramount. There is less than zero chance someone working in research kit and health kit would leave based on privacy. Unless maybe they somehow felt it wasn't strong enough.

I agree with most comments already. The conclusions drawn from these tests seem odd at best and the geek bench test makes no sense in its methodology. In the gaming test you erroneously conclude that disputed the iPhone being ahead 87 to 84% the Samsung would probably win. Clearly you don’t understand how percentages work. The size of the battery doesn’t sway percentages. Given the size disparity of the 2 batteries this means the Samsung used much more gross battery life during this test. It would be helpful if you understood what you were writing an article about.

Sometimes I wonder if Apple gets so caught up in being cool, they forget to ask how people actually use these things. Like grabbing the phone off the nightstand in the dark to check a text. With Touch ID, I reach over, grab the phone with my thumb on the sensor and give it a quick glance. With the X, you'd have to stare into the thing and hope the IR camera can adequately scan your face in the dark. Or, how 'bout the quick glance in the car. I don't want to have to pick up the phone and hold it in front of my face. And no, I'm not an advocate of viewing a phone while driving, but let's face it, there are times many of us want to give a quick look while minimizing the time our eyes are off the road. Just seems like a feature that has more negatives than positives...

I just did an online check for store availability in the Los Angeles area, and SIX Apple Stores have the iPhone 7 Plus Black 256GB. The ship times for online orders have reduced from 3-4 weeks to 2-3 weeks. Supply is increasing, not decreasing.

People who religiously pay zero interest because they are so prompt in paying off their debt don't get the best ratings from the CC companies for fairly obvious reasons, but there's no need to pay very much interest if you are careful in when it's worth paying off a balance a bit slower than "all at once within the month."
Actually, having a loan that you pay on regularly boosts your credit score. When I paid off my student loan my credit score dropped 35 points within a month. So, in a sense, paying interest boosts your credit score.
