If the big task for Apple was to prove that there was a major compelling reason to get rid of the headphone jack, I don't know that new wireless earbuds with no announced pricing is really the answer.

Same! I'm not going to try and pre order this year though because that's always a hassle. The store in my area is kind of small and there is barely any people dumb enough to camp out like me. I usually just go out there around 4-5AM and just wait till doors open. Ezpz

So ready for a new device though, more excited for more space (32GB) because I had 16GB model since iPhone 3GS days. Only device I had higher space is iPod Touch and my iPad 2

Indeed and all its features. People that got the Apple Watch are lucky, game is much better with an Apple Watch
