    That is why I love and hate apple products, you buy one and within months there is a newer model and have not even finish paying for the older model!

    The latest generation was a huge jump in specs. Speed, screen size and the pseudo ECG feature. I can't wait to see what they do next.

    Apple usually alternates revolution and evolution. So if they do that with the 5, expect evolution.

    That's smart, especially given the slow down rate on consumer upgrades on iphones, pads and laptops. Apple seems to have, for the most part, a good handle on the magic numbers.

    Switching to a 1 year revolutionary cycle, IMHO, means the cigar has gone out. That's a reference to an old salt Coast Guard rescue boat trainer, mentioned in a book (forget the name), when he takes recruits out though the worst bars (sand) in the PAC NW. He always maintained a lit cigar. Even when the boat is vertical, he would remain steady and calm; and say "Nothing to worry about unless my cigar goes out."

    Introducing a 1 year revolutionary cycle with any Apple product means the cigar has gone out.

    Be nice if the 5 were revolutionary.

    Yup. Longtime Apple observers call it a “tick-tock cycle.”

    “Tick” — new shape, some new externally visible features;
    “Tock” — upgraded internal tech, big jump in computational abilities.

    I was actually surprised by the new shape of the Series 4, because I didn’t think the earlier models needed any improvement. But it’s been a good upgrade, and I hope it doesn’t get any bigger after this.

    I would like it thinner by at least 1.5mm. It won't happen, I know.
    That dang heart rate monitor is so dang thick.
