    Eh, much as I dig Apple, think my next phone will be an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, for considerably less money than their new monster-sized OLED wonderphones.

    There’s ‘need’ and there’s ‘want’, and I do not need these.
    Monkhouse: I want to go like my Dad did – peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    System: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President, for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind

    I 'want' whatever my company is nice enough to give me for free. ATM, that's a 5S which I love. Not only because it's free, but because it fits in my pocket easily.

    The 5S, and its update, the iPhone SE, are cool little phones (that a lot of ppl liked), but unfortunately, Apple is killing off its 4" screen form-factor phones, i.e. no more new models of those, the SE is the end-of-the-line.

    Guess they just weren't expensive enough.

    But they should be available/sought after in the aftermarket for awhile to come. Some ppl just do not like a big phone.

    Along those lines; RIP I-pod Nano.

    I hope mine never breaks because I hate the idea of using a phone to listen to music at the gym or ski hill.

    I agree. My iphone is huge in comparison to my ipod. I don't use it very often, but those times that I do there is no way I would want to tote around my giant phone. Actually, if my work didn't mandate and provide my smart phone I wouldn't likely have one at all.
