What Are You Hoping To See In The Next IPhone?

So the next iPhone (6), will likely be a more radical change than the most recent 5S. I have a 5 currently and will be due for an upgrade right about the time the 6 (or whatever it will be called) comes out. So my question for you current iPhone users is: What enhancements would you really like to s...

RE: Anyone Have A Macbook Air?

I like the way the Mac looks, feels and operates (at least when I'm in the store). That's why I wanted to get people opinions on what they think of theirs.

And again, it's something I'd have for probably at least 5 years so I don't mind paying for quality, aesthetics, etc.

You are right to some degree, but it would add quite a bit. The other half of the equation is spending. No amount of revenue will suffice if you keep spending without limits. Again, this is common sense and having a balanced budget makes too much sense to Washington.

Its not about the range itself. Of course a 767 could make it. Its about doing it profitably on a longer thin route -- exactly what the 787 was built for. The 787 is much more efficient on routes this long than the 763.
