tdgeek: Non required fashion accessory. If you have to carry your iPhone to feed it cellular, whats the point?

Re bigger iPhone screen being backtracking, SJ said the 3.5 is perfect fpr one handed use, but the world moved on when smartphones matured. Allow time since his passing to avoid sudden changes once he died, that time is now. Id be surprised if they released a 4.7 and 5.5 as is rumoured/leaked, they need to leave the 4 there as the one handed version and one bigger version

it will no doubt become a well known ifact that; the most notable human evolutionary change was the enlargement of the right hand, scientists will be able to iassociate this change to apple product releases...

Fred99: Funniest thing (IMO) is what this "iwatch" is going to be, and how much time people waste creating "leaks" of what it will look like.
From Google search / images:

There will never be an iWatch on my wrist.  


Those are Apple manacles!

I highly doubt a possible iWatch will look anything like the mockups just posted.

I think its interesting to read the rumors about Apple getting people on board that know bio sensors and what that could mean. A souped up Nike Fuelband type gadget with a good display (not necessarily a colour display), and good integration with iOS devices would be great.

Must say I am really enjoying my Pebble (https://getpebble.com/) and its taking away a lot of the friction that is taking my phone out of my pocket every time I get a notification. Trust me, not having to do that is like a HUGE (ok, maybe not huge - but substantial) burden has been taken off of my shoulders.

Probably not, but the first and third are at least plausible possibilities ... the bracelet and the Wolverine / Spider Man handphone are ridiculous (at best). :-)

Love these mockups.

I know they are for fun but come on guys - lets stick to something vaguely within the realms of current science and tech.

mm thin, completely curved/flexible and durable with battery life and bluetooth?

suuuure. There are serious challenges to fix here - usability on a small device, battery, etc.

Samsung Gear Fit is getting some attention: http://mashable.com/2014/02/25/samsung-gear-fit-hans-on/

B
ut anything that requires a $1000 device to actually do useful stuff and only works with 2-3 devices is ridiculous.

But hey, Apple could put a wrist strap on a full size iPhone 5S and still sell eleventy billion of them to their fans. 

I will stick with my analog watch for a long time thanks.

Glasses are even worse (despite Harry Potter), so you can only imagine what idiocy Google was thinking. :-)


Time for some real (if old) "Apple Humour" ...
