Apple "Production is set to begin next month for the screens, which measure at least 4 inches diagonally compared with 3.5 inches on the iPhone 4S, the latest phone from Apple, the people said." Cue the usual suspects twisting and turning to change the very fabric of space-time so that instead of 3.5" being the optimal size, 4.0" will be the optimal size. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Whatever AAPL Does is Perfection

So if AAPL changes, perfection changes. If a feature is removed, you didn't need it. If a feature is added, it is innovative genius.

If a feature other phones have has not available on iPhone is a choice: 1) you don't need it, or 2) AAPL is waiting to introduce this feature (which it thought up first and has always wanted) for hardware to catch up so that it can be implemented correctly.

In the case of larger screens I think we're talking about 2) above. Clearly AAPL is not responding to what other manufacturers are doing, they are working on their own genius time table/long term plan, and were merely waiting for larger screens with high enough resolutions, screens worthy of the AAPL brand, prior to introducing them.

Why do so many people insist on using the stock symbols when referring to companies? It doesn't make you look more intelligent or "in the know". Just adds to the douchieness of the post.

Stock Symbols

I'll answer that for me. I use the stock symbols to highlight that whoever it is, AAPL, MSFT, ORCL, RHT,IBM, T, VZN, GOOG, DELL, HPQ, whoever, they are just companies doing what companies do, for good or ill. They are not a religion, they are simply a bundle of commercial interests traded daily on exchanges. No passion, just numbers, sometimes up, sometimes down, always about profit. Their actions can only be truly understood in that light.
