And NFC is apparently out. Ah, well, I guess people enjoy tapping into Settings and changing things manually. I do plenty of automated stuff with NFC tags, really a cool thing to have. But maybe apple will be gracious enough to give you that in the iphone 6

Did someone mention anything about change?
so far, it does not look like anything of significance has been changed in the Apple part of the iPhone 5.

You must mean droll, since the work you used is forbidden in posts here.
FWIW, what I sad was just an observation, as I am still waiting to see if Apple really accomplished anything of their own.

Yeah, pretty much everything fell in line with the leaks. Gotta be harder and harder to keep that stuff secret at this point.

When manufacturing tens of millions of devices, it seems almost inevitable that something will leak.

Apple mysticism is a weird thing. The inevitable post-announcement disappointment is purely a result of unrealistic hype. "What, it doesn't do your taxes and prevent world hunger? What, it doesn't have 3D holographic projection? Fail. Just another boring, incremental update."

What I saw today makes it very likely I'll upgrade my phone on the 14th.

But it will be a nice upgrade from my very crappy iPhone 3G.

I was surprised at just how accurate the leaks were. But, I guess that with all the people that ultimately get their hands on these things before officially announced...it's inevitable that these things happen.

Demoing a new version of iTunes now. I don't use iTunes myself but I have round at a friend's house:

"You can also browse your library by artist."

Surely you could do that before?

Seems like the redesign took a lot of cues from mobile apps. Hard to get a feel for it just looking at pictures.

I will be happy if iTunes is no longer a laggy piece of junk.

I don't think anybody would be surprised to know you'll upgrade. I gather the decision was made long before today's show.

New iTunes looks like a determined response to Amazon's integrated tools.
