Given the high bar Apple has set (iPhone 5 technology), I (now) expect the iPhone 5C’s price to be on the high end of estimates, and possibly higher.
-Thinking about iPhone Pricing | stratēchery by Ben Thompson
Today, Apple is expected to announce new iPhone (and iPod) hardware and set hard dates for the release of iOS 7. In celebration of such a joyous occasion in the world of Apple, I thought I would share the most sobering item I could find on the subject. Ben Thompson thinks we should all slow our rolls, so to speak, and realize that low cost does not mean cheap in iPhone terms. I will be waiting with bated breath this afternoon to see the final outcome of all this jaw-wagging, but I am nonetheless excited.
Generally, Apple live streams these events through their website, but many other outlets are on-site and live blogging, so be sure to check them out. I’ll update this post (and Twitter) with my sources when the time comes.
UPDATE: Just to help out with the search for a viable liveblog, I have listed just a few sites that will be covering the news. There are tons more blogs on-site, so be sure to follow the one that will give you the right coverage for your interests. Enjoy!
There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
