    For those who are having difficulty watching the live stream via UStream, CNN.com is streaming it live as we speak and the stream is outstanding.

    I have every much a right to be here as anyone else. And to express my opinion like anyone else. i didn't slander anyone. I wasn't rude or crass. And yet you were offended enough to rudely dismiss me to never come back again. What a lovely community this must be.

    edit: and after owning Apple products I'm certainly just as much a customer as you are. Get over yourself.

    Why act so surprised? What'd you expect? Apple is going with what works and what works is what they've been doing. I love the new backing of the 5, but not enough to actually get one when my 4s works fine.

    Just keep repeating to yourself, "It's only two days. It's only two days."

    Or it's 48 hours. Or 2880 or so minutes

    The point is that every claims that Apple is so revolutionary. And that the iPhone is the greatest phone on the planet. But in all seriousness we all know that this iPhone 5 is mediocre at best. There are so many "flagship" phones coming out...this is really a middle of the pack offering. Let's be realistic. Its smaller than 90% of phones out there. It's battery didnt get any bigger, and now it has LTE...less battery life. The new connector is not preferable...they could have at least gone USB like everyone else. The design is recycled and old. The OS is old. Honestly the only thing that I've been missing since my Ol' 3GS is Siri...and we wont get into how bad it is even though it's "BETA" Other than the Apple label and naiveness of consumers, why would anyone buy and iPhone 5 over a Galaxy S3 or OneX or the new Lumia 920 coming out? Ecosystem I suppose is the answer. Sure, you've invested into Apple's ecosystem. Is it worth spending the premium dollar on a non premium phone eveery cycle?

    I'm not trying to be antagonistic...I'm truely asking these questoin searching for answers. These same question are the ones I had when i sold my 3GS and left Apple. I knew this basically was the route they were going and decided it was a little too greedy and didnt get much out of it. Granted it's just a phone. No smartphone is prefect and I hope you enjoy your choice. No hard feelings or anything(like some may have after reading this post). But whaat really gets my goat is that people will pass this off as the next greatest phone! It's a must have! No other phone can touch it! We all know that is bunk.

    Question I have is if there is no 4g LTE in your area will it still search for it and kill the battery?
