We managed to miss most of the up-to-the-minute reporting about today’s totally awesome Foo Fighters concert because we were busy, you know, doing our jobs. But we just caught up on the news, and we are shocked to learn that Apple unveiled the new iPhone5 today as well—what a coincidence! We wondered why no one had been responding to our “I’m so hungry” status updates this afternoon!
Confession: we only learned of this earth-shattering event via our daily Fab.com promo email when we saw the headline “iPhone 5 Accessories – Designed By You, Only on Fab, By Quirky.” Come on–that line is both confusing and exciting, right?
We’re currently staring at our sad iPhone4 and trying to figure out how the new model is different, because we can be a little slow. We know that the 5 is slightly slimmer, that it takes “panoramic photos” (sorry Instagram), and that the screen is a little bigger. And of course the LTE wi-fi means faster Internet access everywhere, so we can download the new issue of The New Yorker while we’re in the shower and let it sit there unread without feeling guilty about wasting paper.
And, of course, the only question that matters: Can Apple continue to make Jobs-sized leaps into the future under the leadership of Tim Cook? Did the company make Steve proud today?
