  1. ‘Soon, in the not too distant future, they’ll have to give away ancient 3.5″ tech for free because nobody wants a small screen device.’

  2. I’ve owned 3 iPhones so far. I bought the original iPhone and the iPhone S on launch day (one year later). I skipped the iPhone 3GS and waited for the iPhone 4.
