Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

i didn't say you called me anything, just commenting on the general banter around here.

for me the 5C is about upgrade pecking order... haha... household also has a 4-32gb that's running just fine, so we are replacing the plastic 3G with the plastic 5C.

i agree it might not be exactly what everyone wanted from apple but honestly, until they move away from a rectangular slab in your pocket how much more are they going to add to a pocket computer? you can already do most things remotely that you can dream up through some iOS or android app (or website for that matter).

now that a hardware designer is apple's rockstar i expect their designs to push the envelope much farther than measurable specs. compared to every other tech company on earth you can match or top most apple specs.

it's never been about specs with apple. it's always about the experience and the reliability. the appreciation *aka* love for a device that many of us rely on to make a living.

believe me, my laptop starts crashing and needing multiple system upgrades or showing any OS compatibilities, my fam and I don't eat. so i've been running mobile apple for 15 years now.

Then I hope you Apple hardware keeps working and your family doesn't starve.

I've been playing The Bard's Tale on a Macintosh SE lately so I hope that one doesn't break or I'll lose all my progress and I'm doing rather well.

I'll probably buy the 5S so my wife can swap her 4 for my 5. But I'll wait and see how the 5S does after people have used it for some time.
