Iphone 5s will have faster processor, newer iOS, upgraded camera, and the rumored fingerprint scanner. That's it? If Apple keeps on having their tradition of having this boring "s" series without any remarkable innovation, people will get bored.

And, 1 year is A LOT of time for Apple to have many researches & release a phone that is truly innovative, just like when iPhone 4 is announced. Where did all of those money go? From sales & patent especially. I mean, compared to other brand, Apple just have to release ONE new phone every year. What's so hard to think about new design, renewed iOS appearance, and making it truly innovative? Innovation is what Apple is all about, and sadly, the innovation is lacking more and more as the time goes by...

The brainwashed haters will gobble it up. (especially considering Samsung is a big sponsor of his show. How many of their products were he and Guillermo paid to hawked on the show again?) By the way, I love how you go out of your way to make sure and put (Cr), capitalized and everything, in front of Apple. It in not way shows your irrational hatred or fanboyism. It suits you well. It gives people a clear indication of the level of intelligent discourse, or lack thereof, to expect from you.
