    Gray market sellers are going to put a premium on Jet Black because of this.

    Mmm...I like what Apple did with the camera for the 7 Plus and the new realĺy fast A10 chip. Jet black is my no. 1 choice but the gold is a close 2nd (to match my gold iPad Pro 12.9). As for micro abrasions, a simple screen protector at the back should minimize it. Prefer nude with some protection (tempered and screen protector, front and back).

    When I saw Apple's openly gay CEO sing Sweet Home Alabama, I thought "does he know that that song was long believed to be racist?"

    You can google that debate. Doesn't really matter, but it was an odd choice. I just let it slide because Tim was raised in Alabama. He probably sang it innocently as a kid, the same way that we as kids innocently sang and line danced to Hagibis—and we all know how effectively they objectified women. But hormonal teens battling zits couldn't care less. :)

    Sigh no Mac news whatsoever. I guess we still need to wait a bit more for the refresh on the Macbook Pros.

    being on a budget, always being content with last generation's model and the one before that and having hoped for the iPhone to finally start coming in at 32gb for some much needed allowance, i wonder which would be the wisest choice:

    a 128gb 6Plus
    a 64gb 6SPlus
    a 32gb 7Plus

    i'm coming from a 5S. would appreciate your advice amigos!

    I thought of that too at first. Sadly based on my experience with the glossy Chrome backed Classic iPods and iPhone 3gs, dust and small particles will eventually get into the nooks and crannies of the case and will cause micro scratches. Maybe its just my OCD kicking in.

    Mmm.....yeah, I don't think the jet black is going to work for me after all so I went ahead with the gold 7 Plus. Safe color to choose and a match for my iPad Pro 12.9.

    Mmm.......128 gb gold 7 plus waiting game. Hopefully, I ll get it by end of the month. I don't need big storage and would have settled for 32 but they are out.
