In a shocking "up yours" to critics, Apple puts six audio jacks on the new iPhone.

Where is the stock ticker when we need it?



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I'd like to be surprised by something. Software idea, maybe, since hardware is so hard to keep secret.

....those days are gone.....because 1) Apple is no longer innovative 2) a lot of the information is being found in code in Apple software updates.....most of the stuff being revealed is already known just be people looking at that code.....

Price point may be a surprise. Most rumor sites and articles are predicting a $1000 base config top model iPhone. Make the base config top model $900 or less and there will be alot of people eating crow.

Where to begin? Maybe a new version of iTunes that isn't a steaming bucket of poo? With more settings available to users to eliminate some of the stuff that has to be adjusted because the default is something ridiculous?

How about making the iOS Music app less horrible?

They just need to make top-of-the-food-chain devices that check off all of the major desirable categories.

I'm getting a new work phone, so I'll be buying something announced. Nothing over $1000. So probably an iPhone 8 and a case.

Wait. That's not funny.

I have the same problem. Would tinfoil deflect the burning glare?

Well, now that you've broken the taboo about talking about Fight Club, I'll just say that AAPL is right in the middle of it's range for the day.

why would the live stream not work on my phone? can't use my Mac as Comcast is still out in my area.

Apple TV is going to upgrade your 1080p iTunes movie to 4K with the new Apple TV. I am definitely interested.

I might be interested in a cellular Apple Watch provided that it truly has a day-long battery life, but I'll have to wait to see if they make it workable with MVNOs - I'm trying to never again put money straight into the pockets of AT&T, VZW, Sprint, and TMo.

However, new iPhones - no matter how cool - make me say "meh". "Force touch" has been a failure, and while the cameras are cool I'm not at all invested in the Apple app ecosystem.

The emphasis on games that look like nothing new (except for fancier graphics) is lost on me.

Do people really game that much on iPhones?

I wish they'd keep bumping the SE line with CPU, RAM and storage, keep the headphone jack. Probably next year they'll discontinue the 6-series entirely, and that will take out the SE.

Maybe to keep a small phone in the lineup at that time they'll introduce the iPhone XE.
