Interesting train of thought

I'm an iOS guy, so I was looking over at Macrumors for any information about the upcoming keynote Apple's supposed to be giving today. While there, I was reading an article about Apple's ranking on the Fortune 500 that said:

Quote:
Wal-Mart once again beat out ExxonMobil for this year's #1 ranking, with Chevron and Berkshire Hathaway ranking ahead of Apple's $170.9 billion in revenue.
Of course, the first thing that comes to my mind with that is the line at the bottom of every Forest River page:

So my train of thought was running to "FR's bigger than Apple!"

Anybody else have any Monday morning, pre-coffee, runaway trains of thought they'd want to share?

Yeah, I'm hoping beyond hope that Apple announces/releases the iPhone 6 with a bigger screen today. I'd pre-order as quickly as possible. I need to upgrade my 4.

I have a 5s and I'm not upgrading. Perfectly happy with the one-hand operation that makes it convenient when I can't have both hands free. Anything bigger and it gets a little tough to do.

Now from a 4 to a 6...I might do that because the processor is going to be so much better. That is if you are under contract and you are not looking to put much cashola out for it. If out of contract, you have other options like a new price-dropped 5s when the 6's hit. I paid outright for my 5s and have no contract. Been no-contract for the past 7 years and loving it.

No apples for me, unless I can eat them.

Sad day.

But, I'm excited about the new Swift programming language. I may have to dust off my machine rental and try my hand at app development again. Their old language was the pits.

Apple is not just a company. It's a religion. Seriously, You say anything bad about Apple, and the zealots will be all over you in an earnest, but misguided attempt to correct your defective thinking.

Wait a sec...you can't be an Apple developer and still be on an iPhone 4. I thought they had an "Early adopters only" requirement.

The irony is- for a developer, I hate gadgets. I find them to be a necessary evil.

The 4S just didn't offer enough improvements to upgrade for a 1/2 model update. When the 5 came along, I couldn't swing it financially. I can now, but I really want to hold out for the 6.

But, I'm a web developer- not an Apple developer. I have done exactly 2 prototypes for iOS apps. One just to prove to myself that I could build something and the other I worked with another guy to put together an iPad app that also worked on his Android devices.
