Marco Arment, correctly calling out the current pessimism surrounding Apple in the press (and on Wall Street) while also arguing for an “iPhone 6” moniker for the next iPhone — or really anything but the “iPhone 5S”. (via parislemon)
My vote goes (again) to just “iPhone”. Drop the counter all together.
A good write up, but I don’t think he emphasized the kids market enough. The iPod Touch will be at the top of a lot of Christmas lists, possibly out shined by an iPad Mini, but we will see.
I can’t think of a kid in my social/familial circle over the age of 10 (and I can think of more than a few under) who doesn’t have or covet an iPod Touch.
And teens whose parents won’t spring for an iPhone (because of the added expense of the data plan, mostly)? Seriously, if Apple promotes the improved camera in the right way, this is going to be a *great* holiday season for the Touch.

Fuck yeah. Much better. No tags, but minor nit. Nice work, Tumblr.
Agreed. I might even turn the mobile interface back on for this blog.
Movie Trailer of the Day: Liam Neeson is back for more shooting and gruff instruction via cell phone in Taken 2, from director Olivier Megaton and producer/co-writer Luc Besson. They may take his wife, but they’ll never take his freedom. To shoot them.
Also starring Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, and Rade Sherbedgia, the film is out October 5.
Liam Neeson has made the same basic movie about five times in a row now. And I’ll keep seeing each and every one of them until he stops making them.
As will I.
Really looking forward to this one. They’re trying to transition the Bourne franchise beyond Matt Damon, and it looks like they might pull it off (by moving on from Jason Bourne). If they can, the Bourne films could become the American equivalent of the James Bond franchise.
Agreed. And what about Jeremy Renner? SWAT, The Hurt Locker, MI:4, Thor, Avengers, all of which he was terrific in. Now Bourne, a series that helped Matt Damon secure his place as an action star. Renner is getting a larger and larger profile, its awesome that he finally gets a leading role in a franchise with such potential.
