All I see is a bunch of copycats, oh sorry android fans. You know, the phone that looks like an iPhone... :lol:

The video in OP is sour grapes.

Having said that, the biggest complaint I have of the new iPhone is the fact the front color of the phone doesn't match with the back of the phone. It is apparent in the iPhone 5C and it is also apparent in the iPhone 5S Gray and Gold versions. For a company that prides itself in paying attention to the little details, this is huge. And it is not even a minor detail.

And about the 64bit processor, nice but do we know how much ram it has? Only makes sense if you have more than 4GB.

But, there are some nice things about the phones itself, for example the motion co-processor, seems like a good idea and of-course iOS 7.

The iPhone product line has had a hell of a run and really did shake things up, re-shaping and defining the whole the market as it stands today, but there's not a whole lot of exciting innovation coming out of their Cupertino campus these days.

Well no, you're right, but there's not much innovation in other camps either. Most of them are concerned with making a better iPhone than iPhone. Where are the jet-packs?

Apple: the choice of a queer generation. For gay icons only. The fonts are a bit pillow-bitey too.

Apple didn't innovate at all, they took technology that was already 10 years old and packaged it up nicely. Try and tell me one thing they invented or "innovated"

That's historical invention in a nutshell. It's not who invented something, it's who made money out of it that is remembered.

Most the advancements in human history are done by packaging two unrelated existing things into something new. After it is done, people go "well, duh, of course". Yet somehow, some people did it consistently, while others never did.
Or as Ballmer put it "why the fuck would anyone want to watch a movie on a phone"

I hope you package that right before leaving the house or you will get arrested.
