Parents know that awful phase children go through where they have to have everything just so and if you get the Jango Fett instead of the Boba Fett, well, God help you. Well, some in the tech industry apparently never grew out of that phase (which, incidentally, is called “childhood”).
If you were among those who bet your office mates that Apple wouldn’t come out with an iPhone 5 today, congratulations. Give yourself a high five; you win. But if you were on the losing side of that bet and were sure Apple would unveil a truly new iPhone with a new chassis and a number 5 in the name somewhere, you’re probably shaking your head a little.
That’s it? The iPhone 4S? We waited these extra months for that?
Which is funny because when you go back over the likely “iPhone 5” rumors, that’s the only difference between them and what was announced: a new chassis and a number 5 in the name.
