iPhone 5 = longer, bigger screen
It's a pretty good piece of hardware, but I gotta just shake my head at the sheeple tossing down big money for an incremental upgrade. Admittedly, this is coming from a middle-aged cranky curmudgeon who's content with his first generation Motorola Droid, but I just can't fathom that Apple have ONLY moved five million iPhone 5s because their production can't keep up with demand. We're all just so caught up in the cult of the Apple brand, and can't suppress our childish OOH SHINY impulses.
If you were insulted by that "sheeple" crack, just try to see it from my perspective: that money is WAAAAY better spent on any number of other things. You can wait until your phone (or whatever piece of hardware) is substantially worse than new releases. That's how you get meaningful value out of your hard earned cash. I just don't see the point of a marginal upgrade when new tech depreciates SOOOOOO quickly.
After all, you can't even tell the difference.
